Seven Tips for Choosing the Perfect Diamond Engagement Ring

At American Jewelry and Loan, we understand that choosing an engagement ring isn’t just about finding a beautiful piece of jewelry; it’s about making a lasting investment in your love story. Here are seven tips for selecting the perfect diamond engagement ring: 

How to Choose The Perfect Diamond Engagement Ring

  1. Budget Responsibly

Establish a budget that reflects your financial situation. American Jewelry and Loan not only offers a wide range of beautiful rings to suit various price points, but we can also turn your unused items into cash to help grow your budget. We pay the most for gold and silver coins, gold jewelry (even broken pieces), and other items of value. 

  1. Choose the Right Diamond

Selecting the right diamond is paramount. Focus on the “Four Cs” – carat weight, cut, color, and clarity – to determine the stone’s quality. Our experts can guide you through this process, ensuring you make an informed decision.

  1. Consider the Setting

The engagement ring’s setting plays a significant role in its overall appeal. Our extensive inventory allows you to explore different settings, from classic solitaires to intricate halo designs, to discover the one that best complements your partner’s style. 

  1. Metal  Matters

The choice of metal for the ring’s band impacts aesthetics and durability. Whether it’s classic white gold, romantic rose gold or timeless platinum, American Jewelry and Loan offers a variety of options to suit your preferences.

  1. Ring Size Accuracy

Ensuring the engagement ring fits perfectly is essential. Make sure to determine your partner’s ring size or bring in one of their existing rings for reference to guarantee a comfortable fit. Don’t worry; our expert in-house jeweler can resize or repair your ring in the future if needed.

  1. Responsibly Sourced Diamonds

Don’t be confused by the hype about lab-grown diamonds; the only zero-impact diamond is a recycled one. We offer new and pre-owned diamond jewelry to help meet your needs.

  1. Affordable Payment Plans

Layaway remains the most affordable way to pay for your fine jewelry purchase over time or ask an associate about our financing options.
