    DIAMOND

    ENGAGEMENT

    RING

  • The diamond engagement ring is a

    symbol of love recognized in many

    parts of the world. One of the best

    ways to let someone know how

    much you care about them. Before

    you make your final selection,

    however, here are a few things you

    need to know about buying a

    diamond engagement ring.

    A SYMBOL OF LOVE

  • Some people will tell you theres a

    right amount to spend on a

    diamond engagement ring. Many will

    tell you to spend anywhere from one

    to three months salary. Dont listen

    to these rules the right amount

    to spend is whatever you can afford

    and feel comfortable spending.

    THERE S NO RIGHT

    AMOUNT TO SPEND

  • One important thing to remember is that youre not buying an engagement ring for

    yourself. While most brides will gladly tell you they love their engagement ring, more

    than half also admit that what they got wasnt exactly what they wanted.1 Keep in

    mind what your partners taste is, and use it to guide your decisions.

    YOUR

    PARTNER S

    TASTE

    MATTERS

  • While the traditional image of marriage

    proposals is the groom-to-be surprising

    his intended with a ring he bought

    himself, the truth is that many brides

    help shop for their own engagement

    rings. 31% of brides helped pick their

    ring, and 34% said they were somewhat

    involved with the decision.1

    YOU DON T HAVE TO

    DO IT ALONE

  • If you dont want your

    intended to come along, you

    can also bring a friend or family

    member to be a sounding

    board. It might be particularly

    helpful to bring along someone

    who knows the other party and

    their tastes so they can offer

    insight into what theyll think.

    BRING A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER

  • Most people dont know their partners

    ring size off the top of their head, but

    the good news is that theres an easy

    way to get the size of your engagement

    ring right the first time. When

    shopping, bring one of your partners

    regularly-worn rings along with you.

    The jeweler can use it as a sizing guide.

    IT S BETTER TO GET THE SIZE

    RIGHT THE FIRST TIME

  • The quality of a

    diamond is determined

    by the four Cs: cut,

    color, carat, and clarity.

    Dont let a salesperson

    sell you on a diamond

    by its carat weight alone

    do a little research on

    what the other three Cs

    really mean, and ask

    about those as well.

    REMEMBER THE 4 C S

  • Carat, clarity, cut, and color arent just numbers that are made up by the jeweler

    every commercial diamond is inspected by a gemologist, and has an official report

    written about it. Before you take a salespersons word, ask to see the report on

    any diamond youre thinking of buying.
