Your fiancée has a jewelry style and you'll need to choose an engagement ring that fits her particular look. Maybe she loves lots of large, chunky jewelry with lots of stones or maybe she is more classic and understated with small rings and fine chains. If possible, bring in a photo of how she typically wears jewelry and this will help your salesperson find just the right engagement ring choices for you to browse.
If you don't already know the size for her ring finger then you’ll need to discreetly find this out. You can bring her into Ben David Jewelers saying that you need to have her advice on a gift for your sister or mother. As she shops, encourage her to browse and try on rings. Ask the salesperson what size she wears. Another idea is to ask her sister or mother, because she might know a ring that fits her ring finger and you can find out its size.
Even if you cannot find out her ring size ahead of time, that's okay. Try your best to pick a stock size to get close to her size and then she can stop by Ben David Jewelers to have the ring sized to fit her finger. It is possible that a ring with a larger setting might need to be a slightly different size than a smaller band and setting. It is best for her to come in with the ring to have it sized for her finger. Your job is to pick a size that is close to her size, so that she can wear it the day you propose.
If you do not have any idea what she would like as far as style then choose a classic style ring like a solitaire diamond engagement ring. This is the traditional ring that everyone thinks of when they think of an engagement ring. Expect to bring her into Ben David Jewelers so that she can browse with you and find the ring she really wants, if it isn’t the solitaire. Ben David Jewelers will allow you to exchange an engagement ring. Ask the salesperson for more information on the liberal return and exchange policies at Ben David Jewelers.
She may have already mentioned the diamond shape she loves, especially if she thinks you might be proposing marriage soon. But if she hasn't, there are many diamond shapes from which to choose and you can browse them all at Ben David Jewelers.
The most common diamond shape is round. A round diamond is quite brilliant and it is the diamond that is usually in a solitaire engagement ring setting. But there are many other diamonds shapes, also. You can choose a Princess which is square, the Emerald shape is rectangular, Pear shape is like a teardrop and Marquise is roundish in the middle and comes to points on the ends. A very romantic shape is the heart shaped diamond.
Just as important as the shape of the diamond is the setting that it will be in. Many times, round diamonds are used in settings in ways that will make the main diamond appear pear shaped, square or other shapes. Your salesperson at Ben David Jewelers can show you many examples of this when you stop by the store.
