The Ring


Nope, this is not the scary movie. This is a story about ring shopping. I do not envy guys when it's time for them to go get rings for their girls because what I learned recently can be very stressful for anyone. But I think it was fun though because I enjoyed every bit of what I learned. Ring shopping is like learning a new course and there are some important topics that should be taken seriously. Do you want gold (white or regular)? Or do you want silver? Is this going to be a diamond ring or cubic zirconia or any other precious stone? What carat are you aspiring to get or can you afford? What is the clarity of stone? What is the cut of stone? What is the shape of the band? Is the band going to be plain or will it be stone crusted? A lot goes into getting a ring. Some people easily find rings using price range and the basic knowledge of the style and cut helps too. Going ring shopping for a friend made me realize how difficult a decision it is for guys who are buying friendship or engagement rings. It's more daunting for those guys who have no idea about the kinds of rings their girl friends like. I would advise guys to do some secret research about their girlfriends' likes and dislikes of rings before attempting to purchase any ring because mistakes could easily be made. I found that personally, there were some rings with styles I absolutely disliked. I couldn't even imagine them on my finger. You see, I didn't know this until I looked into it and writing about it too is hard work. No pressure guys.
