Buying a Ring
We truly have put a lot of effort into thinking of all the issues and troubles of the proposal today (some of which you can’t know until it’s too late), and how the rules and techniques have never changed.
What we’ve noticed is increasing amounts of people are buying an engagement ring as a couple. We are not opposed to this method and have a few reasons why we feel people are choosing this route:1. It is a big chunk of cheddah
2. The ring market is ginormous
3. It is overwhelming what one person must understand about another person in order to purchase an engagement ring for them.
Here is a complete checklist of items you will need to know about “the ring” in order to successfully plan a top-secret proposal:
Metal Color? White, Yellow and Rose are a few of the most popular.
Metal Quality? Silver, 10k, 14k, 18k, Platinum and more.
Side stones? If yes, how many? What about setting options?
Micro pave, channel set and prong set to name a few.
Vintage, Halo and Solitaire to name a few.
Most rings are quite sophisticated nowadays and getting the size wrong could mean remaking it. A common problem, this is not the jeweler’s fault as sizing oftentimes instigates future problems, like losing stones.
With declining divorce rates, people are proposing now more than ever. Why are treating the proposal with the same regard as planning a vacation, or buying a new mattress?
We understand the problem of not wanting to take a nosedive on the style of ring so we came up with a solution.
The solution is simple.
Pick out the ring together after proposing with a loose diamond stone! Penguins do it. You can to. Penguin males present a pebble to their partner and after, have been known to mate for life. Worried it might be a little weird proposing with a loose diamond stone like a penguin? We solved that problem too. Every diamond you purchase with 143Diamonds comes with a ring that is free with purchase and adjustable to fit any finger.
Our placeholder ring is free and disposable. It’s great to keep as a memento or to pass along to a friend or family member. Gentoo partnered with a company called Forever Fit, which has a patented ring that automatically sizes itself up to 3.5 sizes. If you have held your partner’s hand, you will be able to help us get within three sizes of your partner’s finger, we promise. As for metal color, quality and ring design and style, let the person wearing the ring be apart of the decision!
Offered Nationwide, 143Diamonds will help you to set up an appointment with the best local jeweler in your area who will be happy to pull the center stone out and place it into a ring from the inventory. We only choose jewelers who we have examined with having proper references and have personally spoken with. It is important you have a local jeweler for a couple of reasons:
- Jewelry worth thousands of dollars is worth speaking about face to face.
- You want someone close by whom you can trust.
- It is hard to develop a relationship with an online company that deals with thousands of returns and repairs.
- A local jeweler’s top priority is based on keeping his local community happy with the services and jewelry they provide.
