Budget: Let’s get the most boring but important factor out of the way. Buying a diamond ring doesn’t mean burying all your future dreams. Think of a realistic budget with the larger perspective in mind. Once you have the number, move on.

The Diamond: When you think of a diamond, you automatically think of the most conventional round cut diamond. However, did you know that there are multiple unconventional shapes which cost lesser?

The Metal: While platinum and gold stay on top of the list of most opted metals, they still are very very expensive. For a classy look, choose white gold or silver. You can also explore options to recycle old precious metals to craft that perfect ring for your man.
The Design: By now you should have budget out of your mind. With your choice of diamond and metal in place, it’s now time to understand your man’s personality. While it is simple enough to plonk a diamond on a metal band, it takes effort in understanding what your man might appreciate in terms of style. Choose unconventional asymmetrical designs for edgy men and traditional wide band and simple stone for a more traditional one. The design is what upgrades even the most basic diamond wedding rings masculine. It creates a piece of jewellery that your man will proudly wear on his finger for the rest of his life.
Shape and size: The length and thickness of your man’s ring finger should help you decide on the kind of shape and size you should choose. For thicker fingers choose rings upwards of 6mm thickness. For daintier fingers, choose thinner ring options.
While there are many diamond wedding rings in the market, it’s important for you to take time and understand the one that suits your man’s personality perfectly. Hope this article will help you make better decisions when shopping for him for your D-Day.
