There are several things to consider when choosing the perfect engagement ring. Other than color, clarity, cut and price, you should also consider your career.
Confused? Here’s a look at different engagement ring styles you can choose based on the work you do for a living.
- For the Professional Ladies
If you work in fields like finance, sales, real estate and other types of professional fields, you need to consider your image when choosing an engagement ring. Professional ladies should project an image of success, so think along the lines of a large center stone.
If you’re more in the creative sphere, look for something with a unique design that shows you’re a trendsetter. Don’t shy away from a ring with tons of sparkle and a tasteful design.
- Ladies Who Work with Their Hands
If you work with your hands, for instance you’re a landscaper or chef, consider a ring that’s appropriate for your line of work. A wedding band with a smooth surface is a great choice as detailed bands tend to trap dirt.
Also, stay away from custom finishes, engravings and extra diamonds like pave or halo settings if you’re worried about being hard on your ring.
Rings with large diamonds can also make it difficult if you wear gloves, so remember this when choosing a ring.
- High Risk Career Ladies
Firefighters, police officers, and other high-risk jobs require engagement rings that won’t get in the way. A large diamond is distracting if you’re in this line of work, so pick a more discreet ring. If you do have your heart set on some big bling, keep it for outside of work and wear a plain, simple ban when you’re at work.
- The Caretaker Job
Caretakers can be anyone from a day care worker to a nurse, doctor or even a teacher. As a caretaker, you work closely with others and you’re probably rather hands-on with your work. That’s why you should choose a ring with a bezel setting. With this setting, the diamonds are completely encircled so there aren’t any sharp edges to hurt those you work with.
Stay away from a prong setting, as the prongs can catch or scratch.
- Jobs with Machines and Computers
If you spend your days working on a computer, you’re lucky! You get to have more flexibility with the ring you choose. But, if you work with machines, you may be more limited. If that’s the case, look for a channel, tension or bezel setting where the diamonds are more protected, and you won’t have to worry about them coming loose if you hit the ring against the machines.
Many people don’t realize how big a role their career plays in picking an engagement ring, but it’s a very important consideration. Follow the above tips to make sure you choose the right ring for your job.
