Picking Out the Right Engagement Ring

When it comes to  diamond engagement rings, I always thought that I am one of those gals that knows exactly what she wants when it is the time to pick one out. I became the most indecisive person ever. What I thought I wanted was my last choice and a big disappointment in the end and what I didn't want in the beginning made me the happiest gal. Ironic uh!!!

From my own experience and talking to other gal pals, I found that it is important to:
1. Try on different ring styles, keep an open mind and don't be afraid to ask questions.
2. Communicate with your partner about likes and dislikes.  Mr. Savvy insisted I pick out the ring style of choice. He said my happiness is the most important factor. I think he is afraid if I don't like it, he might have to buy me another ring. ~Smile.
3. Do your research about 4 C's: color, clarity, carat, and cut. If possible, personally inspect the rock first as not all diamonds are created equal even with the same specifications.
4. Know one's priority regarding 4's given a the budget. I picked color, cut, carat and then clarity.
5. Given I spend so much effort on the main rock, I also made up all the side stones matches in color and clarity so everything looks uniform.
6. I had my ring custom made which allowed me to size to my finger exactly down to a quarter size.
7. FOLLOW YOUR HEART AND DON'T LISTEN TO WHAT OTHERS TELL YOU ABOUT WHAT IS RIGHT AND WRONG. THEY MEAN WELL, BUT THESE ARE ALL JUST OPINIONS.
How did you pick out your ring? Was it a surprise or did you pick the style yourself?
