Time to go over all things ring related!
How to present the ring
The proposal should totally be a fun surprise but the step in the relationship totally not. That means you have a window of opportunity to easily be honest (in a light way of course) on what is truly important to you. If you are like Jenna and heirlooms are important to you you can listen in to her personal experience on how not only she but her family communicated that to Hunter before he proposed.
If you are going to be buying a ring - WOW! Did you even realize before looking into it that there are so so many options? It's quickly overwhelming we get it so let's cover the basics.
Different ring styles
The cut of the stone (round, princess, heart, pear, etc.), the clarity, the carat size, the cut (depth/shallow from top to bottom), color, and then there is the styles. So being able to mix and match all of these specifics means that you will have the perfect, unique ring and can lean in directions that matter to you.
Ring Trends in 2022
It's really fun to watch the trends of rings come and go over the years, of course all that matters is that you two feel special, loved and that it reflects your personality. Keep in mind that what is popular may not be in style in 5 years so don't choose just based on that. On the plus side though, odds are eventually in 1 - 2 decades it will all circle back for you to be in style.

Engagement Ring Budget
One thing that you are sure to have kept in mind is how much you want to spend on this ring. Now, everyone's budget will vary drastically but in general, most people tend to like the 2 - 3 month rule. Basically put, if you save 2 or 3 months of your salary just for the ring then bam-o. Honestly, our biggest recommendation is that should something happen to this piece of jewelry and you need to replace it - would you have to take out a loan? Would you have to change your day-to-day spending? If so, probably should not be spending that amount, to begin with. Keep in mind it's the significance of the ring that truly matters.
Lab vs natural - yes you can save tons with a lab-grown diamond! Keep in mind, that their durability is highly rated however since there are more in supply they do not hold their value when compared to natural diamonds. Hopefully resale is not something on your mind but we completely LOVE the idea of family heirlooms etc so there is a great perk to sticking with the natural.
