Our customers are basically pros by the time they propose. In fact, we’d say their engagement ring advice is 10x more valuable than those random articles you find online. Here are the dos and don’ts from James Allen customers who got it so, so right:
Engagement Ring Advice: Do Your Research
“I went with a diamond ring, so I made sure to read up on the 4 C’s, what clarity/color goes with each shape/setting color.”- Nikolaos C.
“Definitely talk about your expectations for everything! Use a website like JamesAllen.com that will guarantee a PERFECT ring or your money back. Their customer service was top-notch and we were thrilled with both the process of finding the ring and the end result.”- Josh E.
“Take your time! Don’t rush it. Ask questions if you have any and have fun!”- Ana-Alicia S.
“The chat feature is so helpful! Sharing a screen with the consultanthelped me find the best diamond within my budget by pointing out differences between the stones that I wouldn’t have noticed on my own.”- Abigail A.
“Pick out some ringsthat you wouldn’t normally and compare and contrast them for a while. I started with 6ish all different styles and I would look at them for a few days and then slowly take one away until I had the one.”- William B.
“First, set a budget aside. With the budget, you can start looking for what kind of diamond you want based on the 4Cs. When you have selected the diamond you want, then look for the design.”- Cynthia L.
“Let her decide the style if possible, as she is the one that will wear it. Listen carefully to her likes and dislikes.”- Steven J.
“The whole process for us of ‘building’ my ringwas so easy. And doing it together was fun and romantic! When we looked into each other’s eyes and my fiance told me to ‘click on it!’, it was just AWESOME!”- Debra F.
“Keep her in the loop when it comes to the ring and diamond, then surprise her with when and where you propose! Her favorite flower is tulips…so I decided that we would go to the Netherlands and attend the tulip festival in April!”- Rob B.
“Don’t focus on the ring and miss everything else! Make it a memorable experience, something that is you. A ton of people will be asking you afterwards on how it went down, so a nice story goes a long way.”- Nikolaos C.
“Make sure you remember to inform all her family members, especially parents, before proposing.”- Sherman L.
