A few bits of ageless wisdom seem particularly apropos when it comes to finding engagement rings. First, the saying goes that diamonds are a girl's best friend. Well, presumably if you are getting married, you are the girl's best friend. But that doesn't mean she also wouldn't like the perfect diamond.

The saying also goes that diamonds are forever. Not coincidentally, marriage is also forever. So if you are going to look at traditional diamond engagement rings, you will want to make sure you are choosing something that she will like forever. This is not the time to give in to a sales pitch or a popular trend.

The Tradition of Engagement Rings

The tradition of engagement rings goes all the way back to the cavemen. They shared the sentiment that the circle of the ring represented infinity, and that wearing the ring meant you were taken. They just didn't have as many options for style.

As you look for engagement rings, you will encounter the 4 C's of diamond--cut, color, clarity, and carat weight. Don't be intimidated. Online resources and certified jewelers will be able to answer all your questions, and you will find the perfect ring.
