People always say that when you’ve met ‘the one’, you just know. But how do you know which ring is ‘the one’ for your loved one? Once you’ve met the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, it becomes time to find the ring. For many men, this can prove to be a challenging task. You know your lady’s interests and hobbies, but do you know her ring style?
Lucky for you, you can find the engagement ring for your soon-to-be fiancée through her personality type. When it comes to bridal jewelry, certain personality types tend to prefer certain types of engagement ring settings and cuts. To help you find the right engagement ring for your special someone, our jewelers at Reiner’s have matched certain characteristics of engagement rings to certain personality traits.
Traditional
Is your soon-to-be fiancée’s style simple, yet elegant? Does she prefer low-key, yet tasteful pieces of clothing or jewelry? Does she enjoy simple, yet romantic expressions of love, such as roses and chocolates? If so, your lady has more traditional tastes. Not one for flashy or overly unique pieces, she would likely prefer a timeless, classic ring. Look for a diamond solitaire in either a round or princess cut from a well-known brand. For extra added sparkle to accompany her elegant style, choose a diamond-covered band.
Trendy
If traditional seems a bit too simple for your love, she may be more of a trendsetter. If your soon-to-be prefers more eye-catching fashions and always loves to enjoy the newest trends in fashion and entertainment, she will likely want a ring with more flash and more fashion. Trendy brides tend to prefer larger cuts with more bling. Cushion-cut or emerald-cut diamonds are sure to wow your fashion-forward fiancée. Since bling factor is often important for trendy brides, be sure to choose a setting with two smaller diamonds on the sides.
Unique
Does your love prefer one of the kind gifts and activities? Does she march to the beat of her own drum? If your special lady prefers to stand out from the crowd, she’s likely to want a unique ring. For a one-of-a-kind ring to fit your one-of-a-kind girl, consider choosing a colored stone, like a sapphire. Sapphires come in several stones, allowing you to customize your ring to fit your soon-to-be fiancée. Cut-wise, look for oval or pear-shaped stones to fit her unique tastes.
Vintage
If your lady seems to prefer things of the pasts in regards to movies, music, and fashion, she may have more old-fashioned tastes. If vintage describes your love, she likely favors throwback fashions and idolizes stars like Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. For an old-fashioned soul, look for vintage cuts, such as Asscher, Rose, or Old Mine cuts. Ask your jeweler for more ideas on vintage cuts. For a vintage-inspired band, look for bands with elaborate details such as pieced patterns.
