This topic deserves some special attention. Perhaps because the focus here is more on the Mr. Right in your life who is conducting endless hours of research on how to pick the perfect engagement ring.
They say it’s easier for a guy to spend an insurmountable amount of money just minutes after a test drive in his favourite hot rod, than it is to buy a diamond ring for his betrothed.
Gentlemen, we get it. This is huge and you want it to be perfect in every way (and you’re not just talking about the ring). You want utter perfection; the ring, the outfit, the proposal, the mood, the après-proposal events, the whole plan to go off without a hitch.
Here’s something that will help you to find the ultimate glam finger weight.
Think of the engagement ring as that shiny black ‘67 Impala you’ve wanted since you could see beyond the dash without your custom made seat riser they once called The Yellow Pages. She’ll be sleek and bitchin’, she’ll perform off and on the track, and DAMN will she make a statement.
This is an investment, yes. It’s also one of the first chapters in your love story and that deserves some meticulousness.
Sure, there’s a lot to know about what’s one of the biggest decisions and purchases you’ll make, so be sure to find a trusted and reputable jeweller that isn’t selling you a ring, but co-designing with you, a spectacular heirloom that will be cherished for generations to come – all because you were fortunate enough to have found that special woman you’ll share forever with.
I’m a huge fan of clients who ask me to incorporate a very special “between me and you” detail in the ring.
Be it a leaf because you first spoke the words “I love you” at the cottage, or an engraved message on the inside of the band to remind her of that one hilariously unforgettable evening, add your personal “Carl + Ellie” to her engagement ring.
There you have it. It’s not that difficult – and I have faith in you, so Gentlemen, start your engines!
