Communicate with Each Other’s Needs

I would say that the most crucial rule to picking the perfect wedding ring without going overboard and ending up disappointed with the result is to communicate! If you don’t ask your partner what they like, they will likely be disappointed with the reality of the engagement or wedding ring. But, of course, the same can be said for yourself, as your opinions and dreams matter equally in this relationship.

The critical thing to remember is that you describe to each other what you hope your rings to look and feel like, and you can work together to achieve these perfect results. Remember that you might not match all your expectations as some dreams are too high, but as long as you are both content with the final result, that is all that matters.

The Drama of Proposal

The proposal is all about drama, and the one popping the question often wants to go all out to ensure the stage is set for a unique and memorable event. But, of course, we all want the answer to be yes, and for it to be the start of a blooming marriage, we need to think about the ring before all of that. But often, both parties forget some critical things about picking the perfect engagement ring.

You need to research your partner before you go out and buy an engagement ring! You could propose with a dummy ring, and then if they say yes, you can work together to purchase the perfect rings, you would be happy wearing. However, if your partner does not like surprises, you can discuss these options before you pop the question at an unsuspecting moment.

Divide Fantasy from What’s Practical

We all have high expectations regarding things that matter most to us. We have to learn to smile in the face of adversity and find ways to accept what we have, even if it might not be part of the dream we had constructed in our heads.

Some dreams are so impossible that you need to replan what you can afford. This could be due to budget constraints hindering getting that real diamond ring. So instead, be content with getting a ring of fake diamonds or look for cheaper alternatives that still look stunning and save you money. Thorum has stunning and unique rings for affordable prices: Wedding Rings | Engagement Rings | Thorum

Find a Reputable Ring Seller

When shopping online, you must do your research as many sellers claim certain things about a product, but instead. From fake diamonds to tiny rings and terrified bee rings, the internet is the wild west of rings.
You should do a google search of the company first to see if there are any reviews on their products and, even better, if there are photos. From there, you can get an idea of whether it is worth putting your money into taking a chance. It is an automatic red flag to me if the company appears on any speculative scam website. If so, it’s best to move on to the next one.

The more engaged a company is with their customers, the bigger bonus as it shows they care about who they are selling to and the product. This can be through blog posts, user reviews on their social media, and comments on their website.

A great ring seller will be willing to work with you to pick the best design for your needs and at a reasonable budget. If they are online, they will be open to you requesting resizes or a design replacement if it doesn’t suit your needs. What truly can seal the deal is a 12-month warranty with the ability to exchange and make alterations for sizing or other issues. Check out: Shop Policies | Thorum

Buy and Try On

Holding a physical ring brings you a weighty reminder of reality. Seeing what is possible and obtainable versus what you picture in your head. It also gives you great ideas for what rings are out there if you are clueless about what you want. For example, you might suddenly decide to love sparkles or a massive gem.

Where ever you purchase your ring, it is a great idea to be open to buying and trying them on before you commit to the design. Of course, this is trickier online, but Thorum has a great service to ensure you pick the right size and design for your rings! 

For those buying in-store, you could do a cheeky visit to a jeweller with your loved one as a joke, get them to try on some of the rings without making it as if you intend to ask them to marry you later on. Instead, seeing how they react to certain ring types and designs can give you insight into what kind of ring they might love.
