‘That sparkle, though!’
‘Erm... worthless rock?’
Ever tried telling someone their diamond ring is worthless? If you did, you’d know of the dagger-glares and barrage of insults that follow. The intensity and creativity of these attacks vary, but they all centre around the same premise: “How dare you? You must be stupid to say something like that.”
They might start with, ‘Do you know how much I spent on this?’ It isn’t surprising that diamonds mean a lot to their owners. Just consider the amount they paid for it!
On the flipside...
‘Diamonds are intrinsically worthless, they aren’t even rare. The reason they’re valued is purely because of an extremely successful
Whether you are a flamboyant individual with a bold and adventurous style, or a minimalist with a flair for all things clean and simple, the thought of picking a unique wedding band to complement your fashion must have crossed your mind. While an engagement ring may provide the glitz and glam on certain occasions (of course it will with that big piece of rock!), it is the ring that you will be wearing every single day for the rest of your life that will showcase your personality the most.

If you are planning to propose soon and have found a ring that you’re most likely going to propose with, you wouldn’t want to be caught off-guard when the retail assistant asks you “do you know her ring size?” Here are some possible ways to obtaining her ring size secretly!
Borrow one of her Rings
Keep a look out for any ring that she wears occasionally -especially one that she tends to wear on her ring finger. There are three ways to go about this: the best bet would be to take it along with you to the jeweller and get it measured. Or you can trace it out on a piece of paper, tracing the inside and outside with pencil. Alternatively, try slipping it over one of your fingers and use a pen to mark where it stops.
Get Help From a Friend

How much should I set aside for that precious stone?
If that thought has crossed your mind, then you’ve come to the right place. We’ve all heard the different sides to how much an engagement ring should cost. As heavily advertised, ‘diamonds are a girl’s best friend’, so it shouldn’t be surprising to hear some wedding gurus advise that a diamond ring should cost up to three times the poor chap’s salary.
If you feel like you could be stuck in a similar predicament, fret not, we’re here to help. By now, you should be at either of these two stages, a) Looking to propose and have stumbled upon a mountain of diamond information including the 4Cs, or b) Your partner has hinted at future plans and a shiny stone and you’re basically clueless for the most of it. Regardless the stage you’re
To buy or not to buy? That is the question… Or at least the question on the mind of anyone deciding whether to buy into diamond jewellery. We’ve heard them all. ‘Diamonds are forever so I won’t have to buy many...’

I don’t think many people — men and women — quite understand the roller coaster of emotions a person goes through while shopping for and picking out an engagement ring. It happened to me. Despite the joy that came with popping the question (I proposed to my wife 8 years ago), I wish I had had someone to tell me the real life secrets that nobody talks about surrounding the ring. Although there are some parts you just have to see for yourself (like when she says yes), I hope to pass along a few helpful hints to those of you on your way to picking the ring.
