This video is an excellent way to start. The video covers 10 important things that you need to be aware of before buying an engagement band. Consider the length of your partner’s fingers to ensure that the engagement ring sits perfect on her fingers. The best option is an emerald or princess cut stone if she has extremely long fingers. This ring will complement the finger length. A ring with shorter fingers can look more elegant. An oval stone or rings with stones that are set parallel to the band instead of perpendicular to the band will look lovely. It is also important to familiarize yourself with the types of stones that she is fond of. Are they looking for a diamond or would she prefer a ring with a colored stone? Remember that the hardness of gemstones differs widely. The most suitable stones she will wear daily include rubies and sapphires.
