Tips on Sizing
Because of the intricacies on Tacori engagement ring settings, some of these rings cannot be resized. Therefore, it is important to know your significant other’s engagement ring size in order to avoid purchasing a gorgeous setting that is too big or small for your fiancé. United States and Canadian customers may purchase ring settings between the sizes of 4 and 15. The US ring size scale also accommodates ¼ and ½ sizes.
One solution to this problem is to purchase a loose diamond for the proposal and shop together for the setting of her choice. Some may think this will spoil the moment. For those who value the element of surprise, try some more innovative tactics to determine her ring size.
1) Solicit the help of her best girl friend or trustworthy family member to determine her ring size. However, this person must be sworn to secrecy.
2) Visit a jeweler with her to look for a watch. While you are there, try on rings for fun and have the jeweler size her finger.
3) Find a ring that she currently wears and trace the inside of the ring to give to the jeweler. This will give the jeweler an idea of her ring size.
4) Wrap a piece of string around her finger while she sleeps. Mark where the two ends meet. This will give you an idea of her ring size. Just be sure not to wake her up.
5) Measure the relative smallness of her hands to yours. Then give the jeweler your best approximation.
To obtain the proper ring size, be certain to obtain the ring finger measurement when it is at its largest size. Finger sizes vary according to temperature, humidity, time of day, and time of month. Take the measurement when the fingers are at room temperature and near the end of the day. Do not measure the finger after showering, after vigorous exercise, after being outdoors in the winter, or during the woman’s menstrual cycle. Women’s fingers may swell during her menstrual cycle due to water retention. Measure the ring in millimeters. If there is a choice between two sizes, opt for the larger size.
How to Save Money
Individuals seeking to purchase a Tacori engagement ring setting may save money in a variety of ways. Compare prices at several jewelers for the setting desired. Some jewelers may offer fewer markups than others. Shop around at online websites, such as eBay or others to find bands that were pre-owned. However, certify the Tacori authenticity prior to purchasing the setting. This is not an ideal forum to purchase a setting. However, it may save money.
Additionally, gentlemen should consider the metal of the engagement ring setting being purchased. Platinum is typically the most expensive and most desired metal. If you are trying to save money, consider purchasing 18 karat white gold engagement ring setting instead. Consumers may reset the diamond in platinum for a wedding anniversary, engagement anniversary or other momentous occasion. Yellow gold is also a less expensive alternative to platinum that may save the gentleman some money.
Embellishments, such as pave stones are elegant. However, if the majority of your budget is spent on a quality diamond, the diamond may speak for itself without the embellished setting. Purchase an understated band, in lieu of the embellishments, to save money. Later, the band may be upgraded to include the embellishments that are desired by your fiancé. The most impressive part of the diamond is the center stone. The setting adds elegance and style. However, the setting may be upgraded for a minimal cost later.
