Temporary Engagement Rings: What Are They?

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

( If you’ve been looking for an engagement ring recently then you may have heard about temporary engagement rings. For some, the idea does seem a bit strange. Proposing to your partner – in the hope that they’ll become your fiancé and then your spouse – is generally considered to be a big event. So why are some rings considered “temporary”? Doesn’t that just tell us that you consider the engagement itself to be temporary, too?

On the contrary. In fact, the whole idea behind a temporary ring is simple: if your significant other doesn’t like anything about it (the size, the band, the diamond) then you can simply return it and get

something more suited to their tastes. These rings are perfect for those who intend on a surprise proposal. If your partner has no idea that you’re about to pop the question, they can enjoy the surprise and still get the ring they want.

Try Before You Buy

In essence, a temporary engagement ring can be considered a “placeholder”. There are many who find the idea rather unromantic, though it may surprise you to learn that romance itself can be a subjective thing. There’s nothing wrong with creating a beautiful and special moment and then topping it off with a lovely day out, complete with a trip to the jewelry shop and dinner to celebrate. In fact, what could be more romantic?

Practical Aspects

If you want to surprise your sweetheart with a big gesture such as a proposal, you may not have the time or even the means to consider the more practical aspects. What kind of diamonds do they like? What’s their ring size? While you may be able to find this information out through indirect sources, if you decide to be a little more spontaneous then a temporary engagement ring is probably the way to go. And you never know, either: they may actually love it!

This is also practical if you simply do not have the time to brush up on your diamond education. Though it is advisable that when choosing a ring for an event such as this, you may want to spend a bit of time and effort. After all, you are planning on committing to this person and spending the rest of your lives with one another.

A Bit of Further Advice

A temporary engagement ring can also be a good way of keeping your budget down until you’re actually able to pay for it. Money is probably a large concern for many people when choosing a piece of jewelry. You don’t want that special moment to be ruined by niggling thoughts of getting into debt.

By doing a bit of research on diamonds, rings and quality, you’ll be sure to find out whether or a temporary engagement ring is worth your while. Of course, it’s up to you as to whether this is the best choice for you when it comes to presenting them with a memory that will hopefully last a lifetime.
