Picking out an engagement ring can be a stressful task for some. However, what is probably even more stressful is if she doesn’t like the ring you picked out, which turns out to be one of the most common doubts throughout the engagement ring shopping experience. Of course the solution to this problem would be to bring your girlfriend in so she can pick her ideal engagement ring, but that of course ruins any plans of you making the proposal a surprise. To reduce the chance of her disliking her engagement ring, try to talk to her about it, as there is a big difference between her wanting a 3-carat diamond versus you getting her a 1-carat. The last thing you want to happen is that you spend all that money on a piece of jewelry she doesn’t even like, right? If you think talking about it might lead to her suspecting a proposal, then use some context clues. Observe the type of jewelry she owns, and what style rings she already uses. If she has gold rings, try to match it or if she has silver rings, why not try platinum? Observing the type of jewelry that she already uses can also give you an idea if she would like a classic round cut diamond, or if she would prefer something different such as a marquise diamond or a pear-cut diamond. Remember to always think proportional, so if she has long fingers, then she would definitely look good with the ‘bolder’ diamond shapes. It is also important to make aware of her lifestyle. If she is an active girl, who is always at the gym or in the outdoors, then buying her an engagement ring with a lot of ‘bling’ is probably not the way to go. If she just really just doesn’t like the ring that you have chosen, then we will definitely work with you to get her the ring of her dreams. We usually have a 14-day return policy for in-store sales, and a 30-day return policy for sales online with a minimal refurbishing fee, if needed. Unfortunately, custom orders are not able to be returned. So just make sure to be aware of her different jewelry styles and what she already wears on her hands. At the end of the day, try to not stress too much on whether or not she will like her ring— try to focus on making the amazing memories!
