Your Dream Engagement Ring Is Waiting (How To Find Your Perfect Engagement Ring)
In This Article
This much you know is true: you’re going to say yes. But maybe you aren’t sure how you’ll find your dream engagement ring when so many options and variables are involved. Feeling anxious about finding your engagement ring is understandable. After all, you and your partner are making a forever purchase.
So we’ve put together this guide to help you get your engagement ring search off to a good (read: way less stressful) start. Keep reading for our experts’ best tips for finding your dream engagement ring.
One step to a healthy relationship? Keeping an open line of communication. Unsurprisingly, communication between you and your partner is crucial when engagement ring shopping. Before you jump the gun and set your sights on a particular design, discuss financial expectations with your partner to ensure you agree on a ring budget.
It’s equally important that your significant other knows what you expect from an engagement ring; let them know what ring trends you like, and be transparent about your style preferences. Talking about these aspects prevents conflict later in the shopping experience and ensures that your dream engagement ring dually represents you and your partner’s love story.
It’s extremely common for clients to come in with a vision of what ring they would like before trying options. You may gravitate towards a different style after seeing them on your own hand.
At Jean Dousset, we give our clients options—they can shop online using our virtual platform with a virtual try-on tool, or in-store at our flagship West Hollywood boutique.
If shopping online, our virtual try-on feature allows you to see how the ring you’re browsing will look on your hand. If the ring size you’ve selected doesn’t fit, we offer one complimentary resizing for your engagement ring. We also offer at-home ring sizers to help you find your perfect fit the first time.
After openly discussing your expectations with your partner and figuring out your ring size, it’s time to narrow down your options. From the price of the rings you’ve selected to the details of each design, it’s important to make note of every characteristic of the engagement rings on your favorites list. We recommend looking through your favorite rings together after some time has passed, as you may feel differently than when you first began the search. Allow yourself enough time to sit with each option and weigh what you love most about each design.
Remember: an engagement ring is a lifetime purchase, so you’ll want to purchase an engagement ring from a brand that will stick by your side long after you and your partner make the initial purchase. Make sure your jeweler is available for both major and minor repairs, resizing, and annual cleanings—or even simply to answer any questions you might have years down the line. We recommend ensuring you’ve vetted your potential jeweler by reading online reviews and reviewing their customer care services.
At Jean Dousset, we offer all of these customer care services to help preserve the beauty, integrity, and longevity of your ring, in addition to our exclusive lifetime engagement ring upgrade program, which allows you to upgrade your lab diamond ring no matter the occasion. Our top-rated Client Services team is available every step of the way before and after your purchase.
Lastly, no two jewelers are the same. The quality, aesthetic, and personalization of your dream engagement ring largely depends on the jewelry designer, so be sure to choose a brand that checks all of the boxes. You should always evaluate the quality of craftsmanship.
Jean Dousset’s meticulous attention to detail is what makes the brand different than other jewelry houses. Designed by the great-great-grandson of Louis Cartier, all Jean Dousset designs are timeless, embodying the exquisite craftsmanship, impeccable taste, and finest of lab diamonds the global market has to offer.
Our engagement rings are also highly customizable. For instance, each comes with a Signature Stone® (a secret hidden stone placed underneath the center stone, for you and your partner’s eyes only) offered in a variety of colored stones. We also offer complimentary engraving options. Jean Dousset designs are also handcrafted and made-to-order using high-quality precious metals (18K rose, white, and yellow gold, along with platinum).
