What to consider before picking the right ring!

Make sure its the one by considering these few things: 

1) How Will This Ring Style Fit Into My Lifestyle?

2) Does The Ring Make Sense For Work?

3) What Ring Styles Will Compliment My Fingers Best

4) Does The Ring Reflect My Personal Style?

5) What Are The Differences Between Ring Settings?

So you fell in love with that gorgeous princess cut halo ring, but have you thought about the practicality of it? Your engagement ring will be on your hand every day for years to come. If you're like most women, you're not going to want to have to remove it for anything. That being said, it's important to think about how different ring styles will fit in with your hobbies, work, exercise, everything.

Buying an engagement ring is the ultimate romantic act, but there are a lot of practical considerations that go along with it as well. Check these things off your list so that you can concentrate on the sentimental and fun part of the purchase:

This is the one piece of jewelry that you'll be wearing every day for the rest of your life, so how you spend your time and the types of activities you do play a major role in determining the style of your ring. While you may think you love that cushion cut halo your BFF has, if one of your favorite hobbies is cooking or gardening (or anything that gets your hands dirty), a solitaire in a prong setting is actually the easiest to clean and might make the most sense for you. Here are some lifestyle questions you should ask yourself when you start thinking about the style ring you want:

  • Are you athletic? 
  • Do you have sensitive skin? You may have been imagining a rose gold band but something like platinum is a great hypoallergenic choice.
  • How important is it that you're able to wear your ring 24/7? Think about everywhere you want to be with your ring including in the morning, at work, at the gym, when you volunteer, family visits, etc. If you're okay wearing something showy or bulky 24/7, then no need to think about this. But maybe you want to consider a style that is more comfortable to wear all the time, like a solitaire. 
  • Are you big on traveling? You might want something less showy so you feel safe on your journey.
