Having plenty of options to explore is one thing, and being content with one from the sea of choices is another. The paradox of choice is a theory that challenges the upside of plurality. In fact, through experimental evidence, it states that too many choices can make a person unhappy. On a more equivocal note, choice is a good and a bad thing. Speaking of very specific situations as shopping for an engagement ring, you cannot help but ask for more options to look at.
Engagement rings make one of the most significant purchases and you just can’t be slapdash about it. All the same, the purchase cannot have a linear trajectory either. If this is getting confusing, please bear with me for knowing how too many options can paralyze you is necessary before learning how to choose one thing from many.
Design: In the context of engagement rings, the first thing to mind is the design. What tells me if a design is right for me or not is whether or not it goes with my style. If her style is casual, then probably a band would be a safer choice. If her style is gorgeous, then a halo ring sounds about right. If she is all about sophistication, then close your eyes and pick anything from the range of delicate designs. For career-driven women, contemporary designs that has a lot of geometric patterns than curves make a good fit. So, style is the deciding factor, because an engagement ring like most bridal jewelry is not a one-time wear and if it’s not her style, it’s not the right pick.
Gemstone: Diamond is a popular choice of stone in engagement ornaments. You may however take a break from what’s trending and go a different direction in your quest for something more original. Oliver Martinez propose his beau Halle Berry with an emerald engagement ring. So many celebrities have set the path with colored and non-diamond gemstones. Follow their scent if you find the idea more genuine than diamonds.
Size: Most people may not look at this as a choosing measurement, but in reality, it does influence your pick. Not all rings are made in the same size, and not all pieces are available in some sizes. In that case, most buyers prefer to get it made in the concerned size, but if you are in a rush, it’s best to pick a piece that comes in a fitting size.
