5 Things Your Jeweler Doesn’t Want You to Know About Shopping for an Engagement Ring

Are you shopping for an engagement ring? Congratulations! Getting ready to propose is an exciting time in your life. Finding the perfect engagement ring is an experience of a lifetime.  Whether you consider yourself a diamond expert or are new to the jewelry game, there are many things your average jeweler doesn’t want you to know.

To help you stay ahead of the game, check out these 5 tips to help you succeed (and enjoy) engagement ring shopping!

1. You, me, & the 4’cs

Photo Credit: Odessa James Photography

One thing you will see a lot of when researching diamonds are “The 4 C’s”. The 4 C’s are color, cut, clarity, and carat. Like a snowflake, each diamond is unique. Therefore, gemologists use these 4 aspects to help define the value of an individual diamond.

Read a 2-minute overview of the 4 C’s here 

Now that you have read about the 4c’s, you feel like an expert, right?!

No worries, any good jeweler will take the time to explain each of the 4 C’s to make sure you understand exactly what you are selecting, so that you can shop with confidence – if you feel rushed or pressured, that place is not a good fit for you.

Because our staff is full of GIA certified gemologists that simply love diamonds, please feel comfortable asking all questions you have (but don’t be surprised if our staff geeks out when your diamond has a special cut or extra sparkle!) Our staff wouldn’t say they are diamond nerds… but I would.

2. Diamonds aren’t the only stone you can use in your engagement ring

There are many precious, natural stones that make gorgeous engagement rings; sapphires, rubies, emeralds, and more. Talk with your fiancé about these alternative options to diamonds.

If you still want a diamond center, there are other ways to incorporate colored stones. Create a halo or pavé set colored stones around the band. Both are great options for that splash of color.

While colored stones can be trendy, a diamond is likely going to be timeless and classic. Diamonds are also the most durable and hardest of the natural stones. Don’t be afraid to do what is right for you and your fiancé. 

 

 

3. GET IT TOGETHER!

 

Want to know a secret? This ain’t your grandad’s old fashion jewelry shop. We absolutely LOVE when couples shop together for this once in a lifetime experience.

About 8 out of 10 of our couples shop together for their engagement ring.

Shopping as a couple for an engagement ring not only relieves stress, but it’s fun! For example, at Richter & Phillips Jewelers, you will be treated to complimentary drinks while you shop (speaking of stress relief). Let your partner guide you to the rings they like. We guarantee you will leave with 2-3 options you know they will love.

What about the element of surprise? Well, here is the best part… we can keep a wish list of items your future fiancé loved. This way, once you are ready, we are too.

4. You shouldn’t feel pressured

Getting married is a big step forward in a relationship. The last thing you need is a salesy-salesman pressuring you to buy. Asking for a “deposit” to view a diamond, pushing one particular setting/stone, and not offering transparent diamond education are all sales tactics leveraged in many jewelry stores (even in Cincinnati!)

While you may still have a few nerves, you should never feel pressure to buy. As you begin to work with your associate, you should feel comfortable asking questions, touching the diamonds, trying on settings, and more.

Trust your gut in shopping situations – If you are uncomfortable, you should leave!

Being around for over 100 years, we have seen our fair share of individuals working up a sweat. But, this moment is special. We are here to help you have a memorable experience. Unlike all the other jewelry stores in Cincinnati, our staff does not work solely on commission. This is how we can guarantee you won’t experience pressure to buy. 

You want this to be on your terms, and we agree.
You want to shop around for the best deal, and we understand.
You have questions, we have answers.
Our time is yours!

5. Don’t settle for less than perfect

Photo Credit: Megan Noll Photography

Most any setting can be altered to your liking – and not a lot of places will let you know this. Many places push specific brands in order to increase a sale. Make sure your jeweler is showing you a wide range of settings, styles and diamonds and that they offer price matching and lifetime diamond upgrades! This will allow you the flexibility to not only get the best price, but upgrade your diamond at a later time. Again, if a dealer asks you to put down a deposit to simply view a diamond, you should check out of the door!

Although we have Cincinnati’s largest bridal selection in the greater Cincinnati area, rings are not one size fits all. We are proud to offer the city’s finest custom design program.

What is custom design? Custom design can be a simple change to a setting or a brand new, unique ring altogether. We have custom design experts on staff, including our Vice President, Eric. Our team is ready to help you combine all your future fiancé’s favorite Pinterest rings into one, unique piece.

Curious what the process is like? Stop in and ask for Kim, George, Heather, Eric, or Art. They will be happy to guide you step-by-step so you can see if custom is the right fit for you.

Top 5 Reasons to Shop Together for Your Engagement Ring

We know you are scrolling endlessly on Pinterest to find your perfect engagement ring. Why not try them out in person?

As Cincinnati’s go-to engagement ring shop, we have seen increased partnership in engagement ring purchases (which is pretty freaking cool). This shopping venture is no longer solely led by the man, but rather a process that couples do, and enjoy doing, together!

We believe that shopping for an engagement ring as a couple is not only a step in furthering your relationship but is a fun opportunity to accomplish something intimate together.

Top 5 reasons that rad Cincinnati couples should shop for an engagement ring together :

 


Photo Credit: Megan Noll Photography

NO. 1: You never know what you want until you try it on. Find out what you really like, together!

With Pinterest at our disposal, it is easy to fall down the deep, dark rabbit hole of endless engagement ring shapes, styles, and colors. Deciding what ring your partner should wear for life is a lot of pressure!

And, while a picture is worth 1,000 words, you will only say one when you try on the perfect ring… WOW.

From experience, the size, cut, style, and color of an engagement ring may translate differently on your hand than from a picture. The safest way to know if you have found “the one” is to give it a test spin.


Photo courtesy of our clients, Greg & Chloe. Congratulations you two!

 

 

NO. 2: Ring Size

So, your partner has just popped the question and you are both overjoyed! The location is scenic, they hired a secret photographer, it’s the best day of your life then…. the ring won’t go on!

Too big, we can deal with that, but if that baby is too small, there is nothing you can do in the moment. Being a part of the purchasing process allows you the opportunity to ensure your ring will at least fit. If you do get the perfect size, you won’t have to deal with resizing after your engagement (and miss out on precious admiration time with your new beauty!)


Photo courtesty of our clients, Libby & Taylor. You both looked dashing on your wedding day!

 

 

NO. 3: Come to an agreement on a price you are both comfortable with

More frequently, couples are living together before marriage. This means, that you are developing a partnership and sharing responsibilities, including finances.

By involving yourself in the shopping process, you are both able to agree on a piece that fits your lifestyle. Perhaps you want to spend more on a ring and less on other expenditures throughout that year, or vice versa. Either way, it is an investment best made together.


Photo courtesy of our clients, Lindsey & Chris. We are so happy for you two!

 

 

NO. 4: Up the anticipation factor knowing he could “pop the question” at any moment

What about the element of surprise? How can they plan a proposal if I know it’s coming? Odds are the two of you have already fantasized about the possibilities of your future together; your wedding, first house, maybe you have named your imaginary children. The point is, you know it’s coming…

The surprise is all about when (talk about butterflies every time you see them!) Shopping for your engagement ring together is a great way to ensure you are getting a piece you love and is an agreed upon price. To keep the element of surprise, have your jeweler build a wish list of 2-3 rings for your partner to purchase at a later date.


Photo courtesy of our clients, Pedro & April. Her face says it all.

 

 

NO. 5: Understanding and appreciating the pressure, money, and love


Shopping as a couple keeps the process in perspective. Making this once in a lifetime purchase can be stressful, confusing, and sometimes overwhelming. Together, engagement ring shopping can be fun and exciting!

At Richter & Phillips Jewelers, for example, you are able to work one-on-one with our gemologist or jewelry specialists while enjoying a celebratory glass of champagne in our beautiful showroom. We will guide you through the process and make sure you are comfortable and confident in your decision. Experiencing this as a team offers insight into just how much effort and love goes into making this decision. And, the best part is, you did it together.


Photo courtesy of Andrea & Daniel. What a magical moment!

Bonus reason:

Feel empowered. You don’t need your partner to make this important decision for you. Being a part of the process allows your input to be considered. No more “dropping hints” or wondering if it is even on his mind. Create an outlet for open, honest communication about your future and play a role in it. Make a date night out of this experience and help take the pressure off your partner’s back. This can be a fun, exciting step in your relationship. We want it to be something memorable for both of you! Besides, this ring will be a part of your hand for life. We know you want it to be flawless.

Top 5 Television Proposals Popped by a Leading Lady

From simple to elaborate, TV engagements all have one thing in common, they are unforgettable!
 
When you follow a love story for so long, you begin to feel like you are a part of the relationship.  It’s moments like these that pull your heartstrings and, perhaps, cause you to fantasize about your own memorable proposal moment.       

When you know, you know. And a lot of TV’s leading ladies know exactly what they want.

Let’s take a look at our Top 5 TV Proposals where the leading lady says, “Will you marry me?”        

5. Charlotte & Trey          

Sex and the City – “Easy Come, Easy Go,” Season 3, Episode 9

Charlotte is convinced Trey is ready to propose and is presented to his mother Bunny MacDougal. She seems to control him masterfully. Later, Charlotte uses Bunny’s sleeve rubbing trick and makes him thoughtlessly accept a wedding proposal that went a little something like this:

Charlotte: “Trey, I think we should get married.”
Trey: “Alrighty.”

She instantly regrets it as the moment lacked the romance she desired. Later Trey takes Charlotte to Tiffany’s to pick out any ring she wants to which she replies, “Alrighty.” That is the moment she had been waiting for. Her Tiffany proposal is the story of their engagement and she’s sticking to it.

4. Lorelai & Luke

Gilmore Girls – “A House Is Not A Home,” Season 5, Episode 22

Out of all the Luke-Lorelai moments from many seasons of Gilmore Girls, the engagement scene is certainly one to remember. He’s been there for her and she relies on him. Through all the terrible and awkward relationships Lorelai has experienced, we all knew that it wouldn’t last.. not while Luke was in town. After hearing how passionate Luke was about Rory dropping out of school, Lorelai knew she had met her perfect match.

3. Topanga & Corey

Boy Meets World – “Graduation,” Season 5, Episode 24

Ah, young love. We watched these two develop a deep and meaningful relationship beginning in junior high. Corey and Topanga have always been goals from their open and honest communication to their unwavering devotion to one another. During a pivotal moment in her life, Topanga decides to take a leap of faith proposing to Corey at the end of graduation leaving Season 5 of Boy Meets World with a suspenseful cliffhanger.

2. Monica & Chandler

Friends – “The One With The Proposal,” Season 6, Episode 24/25

I’m not crying, you’re crying! The long-anticipated engagement between Monica and Chandler finally happens after the two have dated for an entire 2 seasons! In true sitcom fashion, Chandler’s attempts to throw Monica off the trail backfires causing her to think that they will never get married. Once Monica visits with her ex, Richard, she realizes Chandler is the one. With a little help from friends, Monica is able to pull off the surprise proposal Chandler had hoped to give her.

1. Kate & Toby

This is Us – “Most Disappointed Man,” Season 2, Episode 7

Kate and Toby have an endearing relationship. Filled with self-doubt, Kate finds Toby to be the perfect partner to lift her spirit and self-worth. After his surgery, Kate visits Toby in the hospital. Seeing him like this evokes an emotional response from Kate where she tells Toby she loves him and she wants to spend her life with him. Toby takes this as a proposal and says, “I would totally marry you if that’s something you’re down with.” She’s down.

4 fabulous places for the perfect fall proposal

Can you smell to coolness in the air? Feel the leaves begin to whirl around in the breeze? Well, maybe we can’t feel it quite yet, but since fall is a favorite of mine, I can imagine!
 
With fall proposal season quickly approaching, it is time to begin scouting out vibrant locations that showcase fall in Cincinnati. We have compiled a list of 4 fantastic places for you to pop the question this fall. Enjoy!

Mount Airy Forest’s Tree House

Amongst the trees in the Mount Airy Forest is a quaint, wooden walkway leading up to a tree house. This space is gorgeous when surrounded by fall colors. It looks like it is straight out of a fairytale. Your proposal photos will be gorgeous!

Ault Park

If you are a Cincinnati native, our second pick is no surprise to you. Ault Park is absolutely gorgeous when flourishing in yellow, orange, and reds. With so many picturesque places behind every turn, we thought this aerial view of the park would help you map out your perfect proposal location.

Piatt Park

Another iconic Cincinnati scene happens when the leaves begin to fall in Piatt Park. The vibrant leaves paint the ground with a myriad of textures and colors. Can’t you just picture a gorgeous proposal under the arches?

Coral Alley

Connecting 13th Street to the back of Iris Book Café, Coral Alley is known for being quaint and colorful. The warm hues from the bricks make this spot a fantastic opportunity to incorporate fall tones into your proposal without being too literal.
