How to Choose an Engagement Ring With the proposal to the person to whom you will be united in marriage, it is a common tradition to give an engagement ring. An engagement ring symbolizes a man’s pledge to the woman that he is going to marry. Traditionally, the engagement ring is worn on the third finger of the left hand, and when the woman is married, it stays above the wedding ring on the fourth finger. Men usually has trouble finding the right engagement ring to give to his lady. Before buying an engagement ring, men need to consider many things and choose from among different styles of rings available. The main consideration for the final choice depends on how much budget you have set and all the other considerations will follow from this. So let’s start with how a budget is apportioned when it comes to this betrothal item. There are three components that need to be considered and these have varying treatments and values. What makes up an engagement ring are its cut, its carat, and the precious metal where the stone is mount. Many people confuse the cut of the stone in the way that it is being shaped (oval, pear, princess etc.) But it is actually the measure of its symmetry, proportion and polish. The term carat and karat mean different things when it refers to measuring diamond or precious gems. Carats are measurements of weights, similar to ounces and grams – the bigger the carat the heavier and 1 carat diamond is equivalent to 0.007 ounces. Karat, however, is used to measure the purity of the gold metal. 1/24 of the stone mass is a karat, so if you have 24 karats of gold, you have pure gold. An 18 karat gold means 18/24 (or 3/4 ) gold and 6/24 (or 1/4 ) of other metals that has been combined to it. Using other gemstone rings for an engagement ring is still acceptable instead of the traditional diamond rings. Diamond and gemstones are clearer and have more sparkle if they are smaller in size compared to the larger and less clear ones.

Style, or the ring design, is another important consideration. Among the popular styles are the solitaire or a ring with a single precious stone, and the vintage or the single precious stone with heirloom-inspired metal engravings. There are engagement rings with single precious stones with accent stones around the band. Split shanks are another style where shank is pulled apart or bands are arranged in a number of ways to give a more sophisticated appearance.
