Engagement Ring Buying Guide
Buying a diamond engagement ring is part of a much larger decision that goes far beyond jewelry, tradition, or money. The very fact that you're even considering such a commitment indicates that you've already made quite a journey. Let gddiamond help you finish with this quick guide to finding your engagement ring.

Step 1. Establish Your Budget
According to the generally accepted convention, a man should spend roughly two months' salary on a diamond engagement ring. While this guideline is certainly not a law, polls show that many men agree with this spending recommendation, and in the minds of many women it's become an accepted standard. We recommend that you don't commit yourself to a dollar amount right away-familiarize yourself with the various options available before you decide how much to spend. The gddiamond Diamond Search is a good way to begin.

Step 2. Learn About Diamonds
diamonds To begin shopping for a diamond, you need to understand the four Cs of diamond evaluation: Carat, Color, Clarity, and Cut. By understanding these qualities you can determine which traits are most important to you, and you can find a balance between them that best suits your needs. To learn more about the four Cs of diamonds, visit our Expert Advice center. This handy guide is available to explain all the terms you'll come across as you shop, and it will be invaluable in guiding you to making the right choices to find the diamond for you.

Step 3. Build Your Ring

As an engagement is an intensely personal experience, gddiamond has designed a tool to allow you to build your own personalized, engagement ring, with a diamond and a setting exactly suited to match her tastes and style.

In just a few simple steps, you can select a diamond that matches your budget and preferences in terms of the four Cs. By choosing only diamonds that meet our high standards we make the selection process easier while ensuring that your jewelry is truly timeless and exceptional.

After you find a diamond you like, you can then pair it with a setting by browsing a variety of different styles that will fit your diamond. gddiamond settings, by design, are timeless-meaning they are classically styled to stay in fashion for generations.
