The Four C’s?
Before choosing that unique jewelry in the form of an engagement ring, it is important to know the rules guiding the perfect choice of engagement ring. The rule factor is known as the Four C’s. The 4 C’s stand for Color, Clarity, Cut and Carat, all which are the four different scales on which all diamonds are ranked and classified.
A little research into these four terminologies will prove significantly helpful when making the final choice.
Below however are some of the questions to ask when shopping for the best possible engagement ring in Melbourne.
- Will the Ring Need to be Special Ordered?
Every ring is different and unique in its own right and as such, choosing the best unique ring will entail knowing a little more about the details of the engagement ring you are about to purchase. Some rings are available for purchase right away while some others, mostly custom orders, have to be specially ordered and delivered. It is important to ask this question so you can fit the proposal date and every other plan in line with the arrival date of the ring.
When you find a ring you like, it is important to ask how soon you’ll be able to take the ring home with you.
2. What Sizes Do You Carry?
Many of the best Melbourne jewellers carry a standard range of ring sizes therefore it is important to make this inquiry to be sure the desired size is available in the jeweler’s catalogue. If the ring size you’re shopping for is smaller or larger than any of these standard sizes, there may be a possibility of having a custom-made order of the ring size needed.
3. Can the Ring Be Modified?
In the event that the ring you choose is not the perfect size, it is important to have asked the store or jeweler if it is indeed possible to have the ring resized.
However, this question may not be one you would think of immediately while making the purchase although it stands relevant in case of future need.
4. Can I Engrave It?
For persons interested in engraving their rings, it is important to ask this question while picking out the unique ring of your choice. Asking the attendant or jeweler if the ring can be engraved upon, either on the inside or outside will save you some stress especially if you intent on engraving on it at a later date.
5. What Are the Payment Options?
Taking into account the price of an engagement ring, it is most often possible that you may want to establish a payment plan with the store or jeweler in order to spread the cost over the desired amount of time.
Inquiring from the store owner, attendants or jeweler about the payment plan may prove important in helping you make the final decision on whether or not to go for the particular ring.
