5 Tips for buying a gorgeous engagement ring

Getting engaged is one of the most memorable moments in one’s life. There’s nothing like the promise of forever after all.

But for future fiancés, the hunt for the perfect engagement ring might prove to be tedious. Not only do you have to think about the size and design, but there are also the technical aspects of choosing an engagement ring. Not to mention that there are thousands of designs available on the market today. It might get confusing and overwhelming for people who are not ready for the hours you need to spend perusing through so much information.

If you are thinking of getting engaged soon, here are some handy tips to that you can follow to make sure that you will be able to get a gorgeous engagement ring for your future fiancée.

  1. Spend time on your decision – don’t put off going to the jewelry store to the last minute. Some spend weeks and even months studying up on engagement rings. If you are going for a custom design, it would also need more time. So you need to plan and manage your time perfectly when deciding on the engagement ring to buy.
  2. Research on your future fiancee’s style – since they will be the one wearing the ring, you need to make sure that you choose a style that they are sure to love. Think of yourself as a detective and peruse through her social media accounts to check if she has liked or posted anything that could help you. You can also look through her present jewelry collection to find similar styles. Better yet, you can ask for the opinion of her best gal pals to help you in making your choice.
  3. Make sure you have the right size – all the work and research will be for nothing if the ring won’t fit right. So make it easier for yourself and just get one of her old rings to know her size. If that is not possible, ask one of her friends to help you out without spilling anything of course.
  4. Study up on the 4C’s – if you’re determined to have a diamond engagement ring, then you need to know more about the four C’s that determines a diamond’s quality. They are color, cut, clarity, and carat. If you want your ring to have all four, be prepared to spend a lot of money. But if you have a limited budget, many jewelers would suggest getting the best cut grade, as this aspect determines the diamond’s sparkles.
  5. Go to a trusted jeweler – big decisions like this are important investments so you need to make sure that the jeweler you are talking to is someone you can trust. Find someone you can have an easy conversation with, and who would consider your budget and preferences. Picking an engagement ring is easy with a company like Dominion Jewelers. They have 30 years of experience and can ensure quality engagement rings for your future spouse.


Exquisite Reproduced Watches

Beautifully crafted men’s and women’s classic vintage watch reproductions look amazingly like the original antique watches of the 1920s through the 1950s with their air of sophistication and elegance and offering a “small work of art” in each timepiece.

Vintage luxury designs were originally extremely popular with trendsetters and Hollywood movie stars, and their outstanding fashion sense has never gone out of style.

Imagine owning an affordable reproduction of a piece of history that will glamorize the wrist in a spectacular and affordable alternative without a classic timepiece enthusiast having to spend a fortune for the original watches that are so difficult to find and thus are very expensive.

The smallest gorgeous craftsmanship and quality details of the collectible timepieces are replicated. A 23 karat gold plate alloy is formulated to match the color of the gold alloy that was used in the early to mid 1900s. In the gold-plated stainless steel or polished stainless steel cases, add exceptional dials and crystals, second-hand sub-dials, individually stamped numerals and markers, fancy lugs and more.

A major benefit is that each timepiece has the convenience of a modern day battery powered precision quartz movement, straps of genuine leather, and carries a two-year limited warranty.

Every timepiece is beautifully presented in a lacquered wood display case to create a perfect gift for a loved one for any type of special occasion.

Birthday Gift to Myself

Got a package yesterday for myself, a gift for my birthday that I ordered online. A watch that I have been drooling to get and a freshwater cultured pearl necklace, these are just simple things that for me, I deserve to have.

This is my first Swatch watch. It is a very light-weight watch that I can wear everyday. I love its sweet and delicious looking treats on my wrist. I plan of collecting Swatch watches in the future, I just have to have that extra money in order to buy each year. I think that isn’t too bad to collect such a thing though.

There are a couple more designs that I am eyeing on. All I have to do is to be patient and hope that eventually I get to possess them. Now, I can sleep peacefully knowing that the watch I have been wanting to buy is in my hands.

Hello Kitty Fashion Earrings and Watch

I don’t like having a cat as a pet but I definitely, without a doubt love Hello Kitty cartoon character. Not only me who is into kitty but my first born as well. I can see how her eyes light up when she sees a Hello Kitty anywhere. Hello Kitty is the cutest thing ever and so to prove my obsession with it, I purchased these fashion earrings and a blue watch on Amazon last week.

The cute HK earrings were sold for 99 cents a pair so I bought three, one for me, my first born and my little sister. I wonder if the company which is from China is going to make a profit for this since it’s only less than a dollar and it ships free. Amazing deal, isn’t it?

Being fashionable doesn’t have to be expensive. It doesn’t matter how much your stuff cost as long as you know how to carry your clothing and you look good on them…

Don’t Buy Stud Earrings Online

This is not the first time I’ve been fooled by websites of how great their stud earrings look on the picture on their online store. I ordered a silver earrings studs last week and it arrived yesterday afternoon only to be shocked at how tiny the studs are. They are the perfect size for newborn girls but for adults like me, they are just very disappointing and upsetting.

My bad, I was the one who chose it. In the picture they made it look at least three times the actual size of the studs. My Jadyn thought that these earrings I’m wearing right now were hers because they are just so tiny. My experience teaches me to go to the store where I can feel and see the earrings personally instead of buying them online.
