Do’s & Don’ts For Engagement Ring Shopping 2017

, , , ,

Nearly three million engagements, with or without the typical “down on one knee, will you marry me” scenario, are played out in America alone every year. Any men’s who has gone through that will tell you the proposal was the easy part compared to selecting the RIGHT engagement ring which can be much more complicated and potentially stressful.

Here at TopTanzanite we do everything to make you ring purchase journey as uneventful as possible, including producing the annual Tanzanite Engagement Ring: The Handy Guide Before Your Buy..

Set up your price ceiling! While we love tradition as much as anyone in the business, we say DON’T hold to that age-old three-month’s salary rule as a yardstick to measure the right ring. Grooms DO buy what you can afford. But DON’T ignore compromising on certain aspects, like the metal of the band if that helps with the pricing, a Tanzanite yellow gold ring is much more affordable than platinum. According to The Knot.com, the average amount spent on a ring in 2014 was $5,855, an increase of roughly $250 over 2013. Your lady-fair may be worth that and more– but she may not want you spending that much.oval-tanzanite-ring  we love the tradition of engagement rings, and asking the parents for permission to marry daughter, and having big weddings, etc. but some traditions are flexible, such as taking three months to check out rings. You know, drive from one jewelry store to another, from one mall to another; a lot of weeknight or weekend dates used up. We aren’t alone: approximately 60% of brides and grooms are now saying they DO their ring-buying research online instead. And why wouldn’t they? Look at the selection of rings we have within our user-friendly on-line catalog.

But, if you are going to jewelry stores, remember the famous line from the TV show Who Wants to be a Millionaire and DO “phone a friend.” Ask what jewelry stores they have heard good and bad things about. Check with your local Better Business Bureau. DON’T forget to ask about the store’s policy on resizing and returns just in case “DON’T like it” is her response.

To avoid the last scenario, DO phone more than a friend. Contact relatives as well, to get tips and insights to your lady love’s interests. Does she like antique items? Or items with a wicked twist? Has she ever spoken of the type of ring she would like to have?

And the easiest way to DO this, is through an evolving tradition where couples are now looking together rather than leaving it all up to the groom to be.Now all you have to DO is select stone shape, ring setting, type of metal band (we offer yellow gold, white gold, and rose gold), and ring size. Don’t worry about selecting alone; we have experienced customer service reps who will gladly walk you through these steps.oval-tanzanite-ring In preparation, just as you might do car research in reference to horsepower and miles per gallon, DO take the time to read up on the four Cs: Cut, color, carat (weight), and clarity of gemstones.

If you did your homework on the 4Cs, you will learn that your Tanzanite gemstone is a delicate work of art & nature, and as such can be bruised easily or worse even, cracked. It is in your best interests that you DO NOT wear it when being active such as washing dishes, working with machines, etc. DO set aside a padded ring box to keep your Tanzanite ring from being scratched by any of your other rings.

round-shape-tanzanite-ringOne more thing, about the ring. DO think about custom rings. DON’T pass on a gemstone shape or setting because it wasn’t already combined. You can make it. It’s your engagement ring. Custom does not mean expensive.

After all is said and done, there is one more point, which actually is something you should DO as soon as you purchase a Tanzanite engagement ring (or even if you select another gemstone for that matter) and that is to insure the jewelry. Not to wish ill on you, but damage, theft or loss are realities of life and you need to protect your investment. And looking at this Tanzanite ring, it is beautiful, but it also an investment.round-tanzanite-ring Toptanzanite.com is a world leader in Tanzanite.

Traditions are tried and true ways that “everybody has done it in the past.” But, apparently the times, they are a-changing. Modern brides, millennials top among them, are reportedly looking to distance themselves from the traditional look and expense of diamond engagement rings by favoring colored gemstones, and among them is Tanzanite.

The Vancouver Sun recently ran an interesting article, “In loving color: Coloured gemstones, diamonds a hot option for engagement rings” where  Amanda He, founder of the Vancouver-based fine jewelry brand Poppy Finch is quoted as saying “People now value and encourage individualism much more than a decade ago. We want to be who we are, and not be told what we should or shouldn’t be doing ”

Just as a flurry of colors now adorn bridesmaids from one wedding to another based on the personal style of the bride, so to can her engagement ring, something she will obviously wear quite often and as such it should be an expression of herself in today’s world and not a distraction from times gone by.

Tanzanite Jewelry

Tanzanite is perfectly positioned to blend into this brave new world of wedding rings and bands which has become “much more pigmented than it used to be,” as described by the article’s author Aleesha Harris.

Tanzanite is of course, world-renowned for breathtaking tanzanite color, And its intense depth, and rarity.

Just gaze deeply at this 3 ctw Cushion Cut Tanzanite Ring with 0.42ctw in 14K White Gold in AAAA Grade. It makes a statement. The wearer of this ring has her life balanced among her roles and will boldly meet every challenge head on to the benefit of her partner and herself. She is no shrinking violet.

There is also nothing old fashioned about this 1.5ct Trillion Tanzanite Ring With .11ctw Diamonds in 14k White Gold. This is not your grandmother’s engagement ring. The twisted band gives it a trendy look which can fit in well with almost every kind of dress, whether formal or informal

Tradition has held that the price range of the ring should equate to three times the groom’s salary. But the article reports such thinking is giving way for more affordable rings to allow for greater funds available for a home.

This .90ct Cushion Tanzanite Ring With .12ctw Diamonds in 14k Yellow Gold fits that bill precisely, at a current mid $500 price range, easily within a month’s salary of today’s hard working Millennial. And as modern as it looks with the wavy curvature of the band if you look closely it has a symbolic (traditional?) impression of two hands holding the gemstone in place.
