Why Planning Your Proposal Early Will Save You Time and Money

Research

Not all diamond jewellery is the same. There is a reason why some diamonds are very cheap and others are far more expensive: quality. Diamonds International sell loose diamonds and they are experts at explaining the biggest points of difference: cut, clarity, colour and carat with their useful and easy to understand diamond education guide. It is a great place to start if you are not familiar with diamonds and need some guidance. Diamonds International only sells GIA certified diamonds so they can guarantee you outstanding diamonds that are noticed for their brilliance and lustre.

Choice

Trying to decide what your wife to be is hoping for in the ring department may be easier than you think. You can perform some useful research by taking a look inside her jewellery box. What style of jewellery does she already wear; yellow gold or white, fine or chunky, modern or traditional? By planning ahead and taking the time to make some notes and get an idea of what she is after will minimise the risk of disappointing her. It will also save you multiple trips to the jewellery shop. The friendly staff at Diamonds International are happy to help you discover the engagement ring of her dreams. We offer a Diamond Proposal service that allows you to propose with a ring with a promise to exchange it together at a later date so you can be sure she will end up with something she truly wants.

Take your time. Start planning well before your desired proposal time-frame. In the grand scheme of things there is no rush, you will have the rest of your lives together. Hit the pavement, the internet and the phone to see how much engagement rings you are interested in are selling for. Look out for ring sales such as Diamonds International?s annual 40-50% off everything sales to maximise your spending power and give you reason to get the ball rolling now.

The Future

With planning ahead in mind consider your options for wedding rings. Buying a wedding ring at the same time as an engagement ring can save you time and money. A jeweller can match the rings together to ensure a snug fit as well as potentially offer discounts for buying multiple items. Taking charge and choosing both lets your leading lady know that you have put a lot of thought and effort into choosing a wedding ring set that is special to her.

If you take the same approach to your proposal as you would to your wedding you will be pleasantly surprised by how much money and time you can save.
