1. Narrow Down What Shape You Want
Creating a bespoke ring starts from the centre! The most important part is knowing what shape centre diamond you would like. Perhaps go shopping and get her to try on a wide array of rings in all shapes to see what she loves, or ask her best friend to take her on a girls date and find this information out for you. Otherwise perhaps she has a saved collection of rings on her Pinterest, instagram or phone? This is usually super helpful and can give us the perfect guidance to get started. Every shape is priced differently and each has a different price per carat. Round cuts are the most expensive whereas marquise and oval are less so. If the size is important to you, you can get more carats at a better price when you choose a fancy shape , as opposed to the classic round cut. Getting the shape right is vital before you embark on narrowing down other specifics.
2. Have a Budget in mind
The age-old question of quality versus quantity also applies to engagement rings. Some people prefer a larger stone to a whiter stone, while others want the absolute purest possible diamond, despite the carat count.

To buy smart you must be aware of this. Listen and be guided to the experts who will either give you options in a carat size or a budget.
