Best Place To Buy An Engagement Ring in Burlington

Leading Burlington engagement ring jeweler, Perrywinkle’s Fine Jewelry offers tips and tricks for buying the perfect ring.

You’ve taken the first step and made the decision to propose against the Green Mountains and pristine shores in Burlington, Vermont.  But now, you need to find the ring.

Selecting an engagement ring is no easy feat.  Your special someone is going to wear it as a statement of your love for the rest of their life, so you want to make sure you make the perfect selection.

Luckily, we have some expert advice for you on how to make sure your ring is the perfect fit from the experts at Perrywinkle’s:

Sizing Your Engagement Ring

Keeping your proposal a surprise means that you don’t always get to size your future fiancées ring finger before you purchase the ring.

If you can get your special someone to try a ring on their pinky finger, it’s easy for a skilled jeweler to size up and guess the appropriate size.  But if you don’t have a chance to do that, don’t worry.  Even if the ring doesn’t fit perfectly, it’s a simple fix.  Making adjustments to the ring after you pop the question is easily done without compromising its integrity.

What To Look For In An Engagement Ring

Picking the perfect ring means using your heart as well as your eyes!

Reflect on your ‘story, journey and love,’ as a couple.  Pick the ring based on what speaks to your personalities and unique story over anything else.  It is, after all, a statement of the love between the two of you.

The “Four C’s”

Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat

When looking for an engagement ring, Perrywinkle’s always starts working with guests by showing them the difference between a traditionally cut diamond and our patented Devotion cut diamonds.  They then discuss the famous ‘Four C’s and determine what characteristics are important to the client.  Each person sees beauty differently and resonates with the individual factors that make each stone unique!

Buying An Engagement Ring on a Budget

It’s about how the ring tells your story

Perrywinkle’s is proud to offer beautiful engagement ring options at all price points, and works with clients to make ensure they find the perfect ring that reflects the love they share.

After a customer selects their engagement ring, Perrywinkle’s shares with them the companion bands that go along with each ring to demonstrate how they look together.  It’s a process the client can start whenever they’re ready, whether it’s at the same time they select their engagement ring, or in the future.

It is all about your journey and your memories.  Trust your intuition!  Your jeweler will help guide you, and make it easy!
