The rules of gifting in romantic relationships are not very different on either sides. Surprising your boyfriend, fiancé or husband with a piece of jewelry is an idea no more awkward than him doing it for you. So, if you are thinking of splurging on him, the best recommendation would be to go for something that will last forever, and that’s a piece of jewelry. For men, the safest option is a ring. If this is your first time, here are some guideposts that will get you started and help you along the way.
Set a Budget
First things first, decide on a budget. Being loyal to it is equally important to having a budget. It is easy to slip because the gamut of choices in the market will have bombarded with enough sensory surprises to manipulate your financial judgements, but try not to cave in. A gift that gets you into debt does not really serve its purpose in the true sense. So, think out a budget, write it down in a piece of paper and remind yourself to not transcend it, no matter what.
Diamonds for Him
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but the same goes for boys too. Boys love diamonds too, may be not more than their games and sports, but they still have a healthy amount of love for these precious gems. So do not hesitate to get a diamond ring for him. However, be a little careful when picking colored diamonds because that can be quite tricky, unless you have in mind, colors like blue, black, gray and such. On a safer side, colorless diamonds work great for men’s rings. There are plenty of options in the gallery that have white diamonds on them. So, you will never be short of choices.
Custom Make the Ring
Lastly, to have full control over the model and make of the ring, go custom. Through customization, you get to pick your choice of metal and gems. Karats and carats will all be your call. Customization is supposedly the best way to determine the price and aesthetics of your purchase. If you have a little time in hand and some creative energy, custom-making a ring is not a mind-bending exercise. Contrary to most people’s expectations, it is not entirely a self-help job. The jewelers will be with you every step of the way, handling most of the creative part when you need.
