Here are a few guidelines that you need to understand when shopping for a ring:
DON’T go shopping without a budget, and don’t look at rings far outside that budget.
Compare only those items that are within your price range. If you tell a salesperson your budget, and they show you a ring that’s more than 10-20% above that budget, leave the store. Those people are not your friends.
DON’T buy from a big fancy store.
If you want to buy a cheap Houston wedding ring while still getting great quality, you can find something online or some smaller pawn shops. These stores have much higher rents and thus have to move more inventory, leading to high-pressure sales and the need to make bigger margins on each item. You’re more likely to get a better deal at a smaller store.
DON’T buy on emotion.
Yes, that ring is beautiful and exactly what she wants, but it will most likely still be there tomorrow. Make sure you see multiple setting styles and stone sizes and shapes before deciding – if at all possible, take a few notes or pictures and come back the next day. When you buy an engagement rings you become emotional which you need to calm down for you to select the best ring that will fit to you. Especially since many stores don’t take returns.
DON’T buy during the holiday season.
The majority of engagements take place around Christmas, and there won’t be much on sale since lots of guys fails to follow the above list, and just rush in and buy whatever looks okay to them. The summer months are devoid of jewelry-related holidays and you’ll have time to spare.
DON’T buy in a rush.
