An engagement is one of the many highs in someone’s lifetime. Getting engaged is both memorable and strategic since a proposal requires a lot of work. If you’re planning on getting engaged, one question you might be asking yourself is when’s the best time to buy an engagement ring? Today we’re going to discuss just that.
Though the engagement season is typically November through to February it really can be any time. It’s is estimated, however, that a third of couples get engaged during this time period. And that’s why the demand for engagement rings during this season is so high.
It could be because of the holidays which are centered around family, or maybe it just happens to be the perfect time for a proposal. Either way November through February has been deemed engagement season and it’s the most popular time to get engaged.
It’s recommended that you purchase an engagement ring at least three months before the proposal. Doing this gives you enough time to go back and changes things if you have too. Things such as size and cut. And it gives you an ample amount of time to ensure that things run smoothly.
It’s also good to note that going back and making changes to an engagement ring can take up to 8 weeks. And if you’re considering a surprise proposal, it’s good to buy the ring in advance so that you can drop a hint and see if your partner wants the same thing you do.
Things To Consider
When considering an engagement you want to keep your partner’s style in mind. It’s best to find an engagement ring that you know would serve them well. Find one that would make them comfortable enough to wear it all of the time. If they have a certain passion, you could try and find one that resembles that. Maybe they can’t wear big and bulky rings at work. These are all things to consider before making the big purchase.
