@Warsaw: Just educate yourself on how diamonds are priced and know what he would be paying for before you go. Look at Blue Nile and James Allen for pricepoints.

I think taking your finger shape in consideration is important. Like if you have long skinny fingers an emerald cut looks really good…here is a good link..

I would start with what shape you like the most and then choose a diamond using the 4C’s

Then of course choose the setting you love the most!

If you do more searching and looking at lots of different sites, sometime you will see one and literally gasp! I did that a few different times, but those were the moments that I really knew what I liked! Not saying that this has to happen, but it helps! Also, if you like a lot of different kinds, that just means your SO has more to choose from and you will be happy with a wider range of sparklies!

Do you have a preference of metals, carat size etc? Perhaps we can help with ring suggestions πŸ™‚

@Warsaw:  You won’t know if you love it until you try it on. Something can look completely different on your finger than in pictures. Try EVERYTHING on .. even stuff you don’t think you’d like because you’d be surprised what you fall in love with. I think a lot of rings are so gorgeous but I don’t like them on my finger at all.
