Your anniversary date is coming up in the next several weeks. It is a special anniversary – perhaps your 25th or 50th – and you are intent on making sure this year is something special. Your mind races with all of the possibilities of purchasing a custom anniversary ring for the love of your life. What will she like? How much should I spend? Is there something specific you should purchase based on the number of years you have been married?
All of these questions are fairly normal. In fact, we answer them all the time at Engage Diamond Studio. Many people want to buy custom anniversary rings for that special anniversary, yet they are confused as to whether or not there is some sort of etiquette they are supposed to follow. In order to clear up some of that confusion, we have put together a list of helpful things to remember when you are shopping.
Make Her Feel Special
There are times when purchasing a practical gift for a loved one is completely appropriate. That special wedding anniversary is not one of them. Let’s just say it’s your 25th, for example. Twenty-five years together is a milestone that should be marked with something that goes beyond the practical, something that makes her feel incredibly special. After all, she is.
Shop around based on those characteristics you know she loves. Perhaps your wife is someone who absolutely adores chocolate diamonds. Looking at a selection of chocolate diamond rings is a good place to start. On the other hand, maybe she prefers another gemstone. Whatever will make her feel like the most important woman in the world is what you are aiming for.
Healthy Perspective on the Budget
The question of how much to spend is always a part of shopping for custom anniversary rings. The tricky part is finding that happy medium that shows fiscal responsibility without being stingy. What’s more, drawing this fine line is something couples often have to talk about. On the one hand, your spouse may be upset if you try to approach your anniversary on the cheap. On the other hand, he or she may be upset if spending on jewellery puts you under heavy debt.
The good news about custom jewellery is that it is very affordable. In many cases, you can even save money because custom jewellery making allows companies like ours to put together a perfect piece of jewellery based on your established budget. When you buy off-the-shelf pieces, you pay for what has already been produced.
Alterations Are Possible
Lastly, it can be very easy to put yourself through excessive stress trying to figure out what to purchase for that special anniversary. The best advice we can give is that you just relax. One of the other traits of custom anniversary rings is that they can be altered, to some degree, without ruining their value. As long as you get the basic elements correct, we can always make changes that will turn that special piece of anniversary jewellery into something even more special.
At Engage Diamond Studio, we love custom jewellery and all of the possibilities it affords. We love the creative process that involves our customers and jewellery designers working together to create awesome pieces. And for your special anniversary, we wouldn’t have it any other way.
