Step One: Deciding on Your Budget
Once you have decided your proposal date, the next big decision is the engagement ring. You want to make sure you get it right the first time as the engagement ring is something which will be remembered all through the life of the bride.
But before you go out shopping for a wedding ring you must have an idea of the amount you would like to spend on the ring. Give some thoughts to this as the decision comes with a fair amount of pressure due to social factors and lifestyle influences.
Whatever be the cost of your diamond ring, remember that it symbolizes the love and passion you have for your partner. You should only be spending what you can afford.
Step Two: Deciding the Setting
With a budget set, you should consider what setting you would prefer your ring to have. The setting here refers to the pattern and design of the ring holding your diamond in place.
The general method to go about doing this is to select the type of setting you prefer for the ring and then select a diamond to complement it. Since there numerous options available for selecting a diamond, choosing the setting first helps you shortlists certain pieces and narrows down your choices.
While the above method follows a logical sequence of steps, going the other way is not wrong either. In fact, it has been tried and seen success by many consumers who choose to decide on a diamond’s shape first.
Once you select a diamond, you will have a rough idea of the budget you are left with for the setting. In the event that you have some superfluous budget left, you choose to “upgrade” the setting and ask for some side stones to be added to it.
Finally, if you are totally clueless about what to get, single solitaires rings are an evergreen design that most people would be comfortable with.

Step 3: Deciding On the Diamond
The first thing you should do is to check on the preferences of your recipient and the shape of diamond that they like. Currently, the round diamond is the most popular shape in the market.
When buying a diamond, you should also make sure that you only buy diamonds that are graded by GIA or AGS. Any other labs that grade diamonds do so very loosely and you will only end up getting ripped off with a misrepresented diamond.
In order to get the best sparkle and brilliance out of a diamond, you need to ensure that the cut quality of the diamond is excellent.
With that, I hope these 3 basic steps can help you find your dream wedding ring.
