If you're looking for the best diamond engagement ring for your intended, then take heart; the search may not be nearly as fearsome as you're currently thinking. A great diamond engagement ring can be found in just the right size, style and price range by almost any prospective groom. There are a few things to bear in mind as you shop, however, and we'll go over those right now.

Diamond engagement rings came into vogue in the 18th century as a symbol of promise, of betrothal, of intention. It also symbolizes to the world that the groom is financially able to care and provide for his blushing bride-to-be. This fact gets some grooms into trouble as they seek the best diamond engagement ring money can buy, as opposed to one that they can truly afford. Sometimes a little thought should go into whether there is enough money for a home, vehicles, insurance, and all the other necessities of married life before plunking down most of one's savings on a 2-carat stone in platinum. She'll love you all the more if her diamond engagement ring is more modest, and her home is spectacular, to tell you the truth.

As far as shopping for the best diamond engagement ring you can find, you'll want to consider the 4 C's: Color, Cut Clarity and Carats. These all play a part in making your diamond sparkle. Pay particular attention to the styles she's wearing now: does she prefer gold, platinum, etc. ? Listen for hints as to types of rings and styles she prefers. Also take into consideration the size and shape of her hands. The best diamond engagement ring for someone with small hands isn't going to be the same as for someone with long fingers. Know her size, and possibly consider buying a loose diamond, and she can have some imput into designing the ring herself after she says yes!

You can expect to pay between $150-$5,000 for the best diamond engagement ring for you, and the range is merely indicative of the size and quality of the diamonds, settings and metals. The bigger, the finer, the more expensive. Generally 1-carat ring of good quality, certified in 18k gold or platinum will run anywhere from $3,500-$5,500. That is only a rough guide. Your mileage may vary.

When shopping for the best diamond ring for your bride, it's best to do a combination of online and offline shopping. Many times this is the first diamond a man has ever bought, and going into a mall store would provide him with a visual frame of reference. Shopping for diamonds online will provide you with a much wider choice, cheaper prices and fast service. Either way you can be assured that the best diamond engagement ring is either a click or a short drive away.
