Budget

Whether you are shopping as a couple, or selecting a surprise engagement ring for your beloved, it is very important to start out by setting a budget. The most obvious benefit of budgeting is the likely monetary savings. Plus, customers with budgets tend to have an easier time selecting from among the thousands of designer engagement rings. With a narrower selection of rings, you can be sure to select from among the best available.

Research

The next step in your journey to purchasing an engagement ring is to do some research. Researching is beneficial because it allows you, the customer, to familiarize yourself with the terminology used in diamond shopping and current style trends. Plus, knowing the ins and outs of engagement ring shopping allows you to take control in your investment and your eventual purchase. The more you get the know the types of engagement rings out there, the more likely you will be to find the ideal match for you and your loved one.

Browse through our collections of designer engagement rings to start off your studies and don’t forget to look through our “The Four C's of Diamonds” to help you understand the important qualities of a white diamond!

Authorized Retailer

One of the safest methods of diamond shopping, is to visit your local authorized retailer. While shopping online from a reputable retailer is okay, there is nothing like coming into a store, seeing, and holding an actual high-quality diamond engagement ring. Often, we hear stories of young men who try to save money by purchasing online, only to receive something other than what was listed. Shopping from your local authorized dealer ensures that your purchase is genuine, authentic designer jewelry.

Since 1978, Medawar Jewelers has been one of the most dependable full-service bridal and fashion jewelers in the Michigan area. Shop with us in any one of our five locations including West Lansing, Okemos, Jackson, Portage, and Brighton.

Ring Size

After the initial pre-planning, you are left with the fun aspects of bridal shopping. If you’re having trouble figuring out what size your partner is, we’ve collected a few interesting methods from our customers. One excellent way to finding out your future spouse’s ring size is by borrowing one of her other rings and taking it to a jeweler to get sized, or if you think it might be difficult for the ring to go unnoticed, try tracing an outline from one of her rings while she is not looking. Another method is asking for help from one of her friends. Her lady pals either already know her size, or they can much more easily inquire as to her ring size without her getting suspicious. Some of our customers have gone so far as to having their partner’s friends bring their future brides-to-be into the shop to browse among our assortment of engagement rings!

Determine Style

In an effort reduce chances of being overwhelmed by designers and styles, we recommend you think over your partner’s individual style. Figuring out if your bride-to-be is a classic beauty or a contemporary maven will make selecting a ring that much easier.

Once you know your lady’s general style, selecting the details will be a breeze. At Medawar Jewelers, we carry designers who create ultra-modern designs, designers who craft vintage-inspired engagement rings, and many others who perfectly fuse multiple looks.

Individual Elements of Style to Consider:
