The 7 Commonly Faced Challenges when Purchasing an Engagement Ring
1. Belief that generic mass market jewellery stores create quality engagement rings.
Unfortunately just because a store is everywhere doesn’t mean that the rings they are selling are of exceptional quality. Mass market produced rings usually only have one goal in mind, to make the ring as light and cheap as possible.
2. Not knowing what engagement ring their partner wanted or know how to do the right research.
Not knowing what your partner’s style is and what she ultimately wants and likes can create some serious obstacles to beginning the process of finding the dream ring. Not to mention proposing with an engagement ring that your partner hates. In a recent survey conducted – 79% of male respondents agreed with the statement “most men don’t have a clue what a girl wants for an engagement ring.”
3. Giving a ring that impresses their fiancee. In their fiancee's eyes not spending enough on an engagement ring that lasts forever can be devastating.
Diamonds are not like a bottle of wine that gets better with time. Not getting the best engagement ring that you can now, can mean a lifetime of regret and disappointment.
4. Not understanding the core diamond fundamentals.
Finding the perfect diamond is tough. There are so many grading characteristics to take into account. If you are not properly informed, you can end up paying for a difference they can’t see or spending thousands of dollars more than you need to. The questions you need to ask yourself here is – are you buying a diamond or a piece of papers?
