Exchanging the engagement ring is the most important part of the engagement ceremony but selecting a good one is the most difficult task for everyone. If you are planning to go for shopping to buy an engagement ring, it is good to go with your fiancé so that you both can decide on the model as per your budget. The most important question is whether to go for a ready-made model or custom design model as per Gerry The Jeweler. Custom made designs have more benefits than ready-made models according to stylenest.co.uk.
This is the most important factor when buying a good custom made engagement ring. There are many sellers who can easily cheat you on the quality and on the gold and diamond as you cannot easily judge the quality just by seeing the product. Ensure that the seller is an approved seller. All his products should meet all the quality checklists and it should be evidenced in the final product. Make sure that the jeweler is a well-known person to you or your family jeweler so that you can trust him on the quality. If you don’t have any family jeweler, you can refer your friends and family members for their recommendations.
It is recommended to start your engagement ring purchase well before the engagement day because some jewelers will take extended periods of time to complete custom made diamond rings. Also, it will be helpful for you to check the design at the half stage and go for some changes if the design is not coming as per your taste and lifestyle. Keep in mind that any changes are possible only before the central diamond is fixed if the diamond is fixed the seller will not entertain any kind of changes in the ring. The motto of a good jeweler is to satisfy their customer and hence he should be able to work with you till you are 100% satisfied with the final product. The last minute rush may lead to some bad selection and also it will cost you more as the jeweler will demand more money for making the ring within a short period.
The gold purity level is determined by karats. Typically gold comes under two purity levels namely 22 karats and 24 Karats. 22 karats are 92% in purity and 24 karats are 99.9% in purity, but you cannot make designs using 24 karat gold and hence sellers use only 22 karat gold to make their products. If you are planning to buy a diamond ring, make sure to check for the 4 ‘C’s while buying such as carat, cut, color and clarity. Ensure that your diamond should be certified by various gem certification organizations. Whatever may your choice be whether gold or diamond, you have to check for purity, pricing including making charges and guarantee for the products with buy back options so that in the case of any problem in future you can easily exchange with the same seller.
