Engagement Ring Buying Tips

Purchasing An Engagement Ring: A Step-By-Step Guide

Are you getting ready to propose? If so, congratulations! As part of this big step, you may be preparing to purchase an engagement ring. If you're not sure where to start, don't worry - our guide can help you learn more about the process so you're prepared to find a ring that will take her breath away. Just follow these simple steps:

  • 1. Start by researching rings. Before you shop, take some time to learn about what's available, from metal types to diamond cuts.
  • 2. Are you shopping alone or together? Some people want to surprise their partner by choosing a ring they think they'll love. Others prefer to have their partner come with them to choose a ring. Either option is valid, but you'll want to make sure you're prepared for both.
  • 3. Listen to your partner. Chances are that your partner already has a ring in mind - if not a specific piece, then a particular style, metal type or gemstone. Be sure to listen, watch their social media feeds and pay attention to their personal style. It's a great way to get a feel for the right ring.
  • 4. Visit a store. It's one thing to look at a picture of a diamond. It's another thing entirely to see it in person. Whether you're shopping alone or together, be sure to visit Jared The Galleria Of Jewelry to look at rings in person.
  • 5. Find the ideal ring at the right price. Start by putting together a budget so you know how much you can afford to spend. Then talk to your Jared jewelry specialist to maximize the 4Cs and get the best ring possible.
  • 6. Don't forget about yourself! Though you may not be buying anything during this process, it never hurts to think ahead. If you would like a band that matches your partner's ring, speak with your jeweler about complementary styles, or even having something custom made.


Buying a ring is an exciting, emotional moment. No matter what type of proposal you're thinking of, our ring-buying steps can help you find the ideal ring for your partner.
