Firstly, the big question: should you go shopping for an engagement ring on your own or with your future spouse? Obviously going alone means that you can surprise them, Going together obviously means that you will lose the element of surprise, but at the same time it means that you can make it an experience to remember as you both go about planning your future of happiness together. Also, remember, that no matter how well you may know your partner, there will always be a chance, even a remote one, that you may end up buying something that they do not like. And as it will be something that they will be wearing for a long time, it does appear to be best to let them come along as you choose it.
Often, you may get a better price when purchasing an engagement ring and wedding band at the same time, and women’s diamond wedding ring sets are a perfect example of this. Jewelers will often offer more attractive pricing on their sets than on the individual rings. And while you’re looking, you can also select a matching man’s wedding ring to complement the set, and you may get an even better deal.
Another important statistic is that even in this economy the groom hasn’t downsized the ring. In fact, only 14 percent of grooms admitted that they purchased an inferior ring due to the negative economic climate – about one-quarter of grooms said they spent more than they originally budgeted for. It is true that white gold is still as popular as ever, but a significant number of couples are studying alternative metals. For instance, in 2011, more than one-quarter (27 percent) of grooms opted for tungsten and 16 percent decided to buy a titanium ring.
”A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person,” said American author Mignon McLaughlin. Although there are pessimists when it comes to the topic of love and marriage, millions of people all over the world make that giant leap to spending and sharing the rest of their lives with one person. Getting married is one of the happiest times in a person’s life. Finding your true love, getting married and wearing a ring to signify your commitment to the other person is a romantic idea and one that has been kept a tradition for decades, even in our neoteric, cynical society.
So, next time, don’t judge the marital status of a male by the absence of ring on his finger and always remember that wearing one or not wearing one can be a personal choice unaffected by the societal norms. By now, you know who in the royal family wears a ring and who doesn’t but do you also know about the fact that there’s a tradition according to which the young boys belonging to the upper class, aristocracy and royals are supposed to wear shorts and not doing so is considered ”suburban”. And if you have guessed that this is why Prince George is always seen in shorts, give yourself a pat on the back because you are absolutely right. So, in this case, it is not his choice but the tradition.
