How to purchase a diamond ring

Luxury gifts and deep feelings

The entire point of gifts dedicated to your loved ones is to show them your affection. You get them things to make them happy, to make them smile, even to make them laugh. You want your presents to be convenient or appealing for them, to be a useful part of their lives or just a happy memory, a token that will remind them of your gesture of care and affection later in life. Giving presents is about capturing a happy moment with someone you love, and keeping those feelings alive in time. Every time they look at the gift, they will remember you and the nice gesture you had. 

Special gifts are meaningful because they take more from you. Either because you have to be particularly thoughtful or shop around for longer until you find the perfect present, or because you went the extra mile and personalized the gift for them, or even because you had to work hard to earn the money to buy something expensive. Luxury gifts aren't easy to get for most people, but precisely because of that they mean a lot. The effort and time you have to dedicate, the sacrifices you have to make to get one for someone you love, are the best proof that you actually care, and that's what gives them their emotional value.

Buying diamond rings

Diamond rings are a classic luxury gift meant for a wide range of occasions. In some cases, it's customary - we use diamond rings to propose, and buying the right diamond ring is part of the ritual of engagement in our culture - or quite frequent - like wedding rings, which aren't supposed to have diamonds but hey, if they happen to have one or two, nobody would complain. Diamond rings are also nice gifts for other special occasions, or just as a powerful gesture of love and appreciation for someone else.

There are a handful of people out there who purchase diamond rings and other expensive jewellry very lightly, but for most of us, accessing such a piece is a challenging task. For this very reason, buying someone a diamond ring, or even getting it for yourself, is a special thing with a powerful meaning.

If you are thinking about buying a diamond ring, you should know for starters that they are expensive. You can buy them, of course, but you should think very carefully before doing so. Not only because you need to find a way to actually afford one, but also because there is a wide range of options out there, and if you make the right choice you might end up saving a nice bunch of money. Getting deals or affordable models is something you should consider, and the only way to find those opportunities is to look for them, either browsing online or going to reputable diamond ring stores or jewellry stores that offer convenient prices for good quality pieces. 

It is great to shop around a bit and see options, but doing it might consume a lot of time and energy for you. You should find places where silversmiths and jewellery gather and set up their stores one by the other, or at least at a close distance, so you can spend an afternoon looking at options at convenient locations. Hatton Garden in London is a great place to start, with plenty of skilled silversmiths offering their products in a wide range of prices, models and styles, all with great quality.

Tips for finding the right diamond ring size

Since these are expensive pieces, and many times they are meant for special occasions like engagements and weddings, you should make sure to make the right choice when buying one. 

One of the basics is size. Fingers are different, and when you buy a ring for yourself you have to try it on and see if it fits. It gets trickier when you buy a ring for someone else. You can take a ring that person already has and put it on a piece of paper, then draw the inner circle with a pen. You can use that for size comparison when shopping. Another good option is to press the ring against a soap or other similar material so the shape gets imprinted.

When in doubt, always buy a larger ring instead of a smaller ring. It is much easier to make a ring tighter than to make it bigger. You wouldn't want to give the present and then see that it doesn't fit!
