The time has come for you to propose to your girlfriend. Of course, this is a momentous event and deserves to be remembered. The last thing that you might want is to ruin it because you bought pearl engagement rings that doesn’t fit or is too big for her hands.

Before buying pearl engagement rings, one should consider the shape of the finger where the designer rings are to be placed. Different shapes compliment differently so it is best to check out the following guidelines to help you pick the one that will suit her.

Guidelines to Choosing the Pearl Engagement Rings:

  • Finger length. Finger length is important. One needs to check whether she has long slender finger or short slender finger.

  • If the person has longer fingers, a marquise cut pearl engagement ring would suit and compliment her fingers. A person with shorter finger would find pear or teardrop shaped pearls better as it would not overwhelm her fingers.

  •  People with narrow fingers would appreciate wearing designer engagement rings with small stones set in it to make the finger appear wider than it seems.


Choosing the Right Pearl

After deciding on the kind of ring that would complement her finger shape, it is now time to shop for the pearl that would adorn the ring. There are many types of pearls around and depending on your budget, you can set one or more pearls on your engagement ring.

The most popular and widely available today are cultured pearls. Cultured pearls come from the farmed oysters and are less expensive than real pearls. If you are on a tight budget, you can also choose freshwater pearls.

However, if you are not restricted with budget constraints, black pearls or China Sea pearls are rare and would most likely make your beloved fall in love with you all over again. You can also buy cultured pearls and set it to your designer pearl rings as the only difference between natural and cultured pearl is the way they are made.
