Emerald Engagement Rings Are The Perfect Choice

Emerald Engagement Rings Are The Perfect Choice

Emerald engagement rings are a great choice to give the love of your life. If you are like most men, shopping for an engagement ring is an exciting, but stressful time. I hope this page helps you out.

You may be here because you want to choose something unique for your fiancee, or you may feel a bit dismayed by the high prices of diamond engagement rings. Whatever the reason, you should know that gemstone engagement rings are a wonderful choice.

Gemstone engagement rings are more popular and desirable than ever, and emerald engagement rings are both beautiful and affordable. Since the cost of an emerald is generally lower than a similar sized diamond, you can often purchase a larger emerald for the engagement ring.

Many women prefer large stones, but your lady may not. If you look at her current jewelry you might be able to tell her preference. Her style of clothes and sense of fashion may give you clues. A very important thing to notice is what color gold she normally wears, or if she tends to wear platinum jewelry pieces. Women tend to stick to one kind of metal and it is important you choose the one she likes.

You can ask a friend of hers, or her mom for advice, but only do this if you know they will not pass along the info. This is a huge temptation for some women, so consider it carefully before seeking them out.

It is perfectly acceptable to shop with your fiancee, also. If you don't want to do that, you could ask her for some tips or guidance.

Keep in mind that most women are happy with a ring when they know it was chosen with love and care!

This is my favorite choice from the emerald engagement rings available that are under $200.

I like this ring for a couple different reasons. The three emeralds are great, and the setting is a little unusual, without being way out there. My favorite thing is that the ring is low profile. I hate snagging a ring on clothes, children, seat covers, etc.

This is a great option for ladies who like a larger stone. The band is very thin too, and it increases the attention on the emerald. A very pretty choice.

      @anonymous: Congrats on your upcoming anniversary! With all gems, the cut can really affect how big it actually appears to be, as can the setting. Copy and paste this url into your browser and check out the gem cut and approximate carat weight.
