A Man's Guide to Buying an Engagement Ring
1: Pick a Budget

1: Pick a Budget

The first thing you should determine is how much you want to spend.  A diamond ring should not break the bank, but it should also be something that you and your fiance will cherish forever and possibly pass down to generations to come.  The design team at Leeza Braun will guide you through a cost analysis and help you find the most luxurious ring at the perfect price point for you.  If you already have a budget in mind, go to step two of the Man’s Guide to Engagement Buying an Engagement Ring.

 

1: Pick a Budget
2:  Choose Your Stone Shape

2: Choose Your Stone Shape

First of all, there is no bad diamond shape.  While it is true that different shapes may cost more than others, the master jewelers at Leeza Braun will ensure you that you pick the perfect shape stone, with the highest quality that is within your budget.  What is a bit more difficult, is making sure it is the ring of her dreams.  There are a few sneaky ways to find out:

 

    1.  Ask a friend or family member if she’s ever discussed it (make sure you trust them!)
    2. Go window shopping with her.
    3. Ask her what she thinks of Prince Harry’s choice of a fiancé and engagement ring.
    4. Check out the shapes of other rings she has.

 

Whether or not you have an idea of an stone shape, you can trust that the Leeza Braun team will find the perfect stone for her.  When you visit us in person, we will show you a variety of stones and sizes…we always say, the right stone actually speaks to you.  You will know it when we show it!

3:  Selecting a Ring and Band Style

3: Selecting a Ring and Band Style

There are many different band styles to choose from.  We will help you select a style that goes perfectly with your stone of choice, in addition to the taste and style your girlfriend may have.  If she has a classic style, she might be interested in a more simple platinum or white gold setting.  If she really loves diamonds, you might choose a pave or channel setting.  If she’s edgy and likes unusual jewelry, perhaps a twisted or split shank will be her style.  The Leeza Braun design team will create the perfect setting for your diamond.

4: Select The Metal of the Band

The two types of metals that we use are Gold and Platinum.  Gold comes in 3 different colors…White, yellow and gold.  Platinum, the stronger of the two metals, is also a popular choice but is more expensive than gold.  The design team at Leeza Braun will show you how different metals can impact the design of the shank, and the brilliance of the diamond.

5: Her Ring Size

While it is not imperative that we know your girlfriend’s ring size (we can always resize), there are a few ways of getting your girlfriend’s ring size without her knowing. You can sneak a ring from her jewelry box, get the ring size and put it back right away before she notices it is missing. Or, you can recruit her best friend or relative to get one of her rings for you. If these methods seem a little too risky, simply hold her hand and guess her ring measurement or borrow a pair of her gloves.  Since all of our exquisite rings are custom designed and hand-crafted, the ring can be sized to perfection after the engagement takes place (if necessary)
