Budget and Lifestyle: Have you and your SO set a ring budget? Budgets can differ greatly depending on lifestyle, expectations, etc. i.e. Do you really need that 3 carat princess cut Tiffany diamond (yes)? Do you have metal allergies that require you to wear platinum exclusively? How rough are you on your jewelry? Do you work with your hands frequently? All of these factors come into play when setting a budget.
Uniqueness: Are you expecting your rings to match? Do you have a family heirloom that you want worked into your wedding rings (Contact Us, we can do that)?
