Buying engagement rings in South Africa

Probably the happiest and most nerve wracking day in a man’s life is the day he gets married. Putting an engagement ring on your bride’s finger is a thrilling experience you won’t soon forget but before this can happen there is another stressful experience to get through: buying the engagement ring. As a guy you probably haven’t spent much time staring through the shop windows at jewellery in the first place so shopping for an engagement ring comes as a very new experience and a very daunting one. It’s kind of like when you go wine tasting for the first time. You hold it up to the light, try and do what other people are doing, and then try and ask intelligent questions and make, what you think are, intelligent comments. The end result is that people realise pretty quickly that this is your first rodeo. The problem with buying an engagement ring is that it’s probably your first time, you’ve never done this before and you have no idea what to look out for or what questions to ask. You don’t know the difference between a diamond and a cubic zirconia. If you’re looking for a good deal then it’s a really good idea to go and shop for diamond engagement rings in South Africa. After all, South Africa is where the diamonds and gold are mined and the prices will be better than buying engagement rings in Europe or the States.

Engagement Ring Prices

What should I be paying? Well this is a tough one. It really comes down to your budget. Understanding what a fair price is will only come from shopping around and trying to compare the prices of similar rings. Diamond prices are set by a report that gets issued to jewellers around the world so you should be able to get a fair idea of what the price should be for the size of diamond you’re looking for.


Engagement ring designs

Just face the fact that you’re just not going to choose the ring she likes. Have her look at a few designs the next time you walk past a jeweller’s window and ask her which one she likes and which she doesn’t. This is the only way you’re going to get an idea of what’s going to get the response you’re after.



Do some research on different precious metals so that you can make a good choice between yellow gold, white gold, platinum or some other alloy. Try and find out what her preference is before you start putting your budget together because the type of metal can make a big difference to the price.


Hopefully you’ll make a good choice and she’ll be thrilled to have you put the engagement ring on her finger as she says “yes”. Shopping for the ring in South Africa will probably save you enough money to make it worth the trip and you’ll be able to do some research for your honeymoon while you’re at it.
