Top 3 Tips for Guys Thinking About Popping the Question this Holiday Season October 6, 2016 By Uptown Diamond 1.) Get started early! Did you know that approximately 33% of engagements happen on Christmas Eve? Not to mention the proposals happening at Midnight before that New Year’s kiss! This means there are thousands and thousands of people shopping for rings between September and December. Finding a local jeweler with certified gemologists on site, who will design and manufacture your engagement ring in house while using the latest state of the art technology, is key! 2.) Give yourself time to research. It can be overwhelming when shopping for the perfect diamond so make sure you understand the 4 C’s and that the diamond is natural and untreated and free of fluorescence. If you’re not sure what any of this means, don’t feel bad, the average guy can’t be expected to teach himself all this in a few weeks before he goes shopping. This is why you need “The Perfect Diamond Buying Guide” by Uptown Diamond to help you through the process and educate you on the subjects that are most relevant to your search. 3.) Don’t forget your checklist! You might think you’ll remember your future fiancés ring size and her favorite diamond shape, however, it’s best not to take any chances. You’ve started early, completed your research, now put your checklist together and head out to make one of the most important purchases of your life! Whether under a Mistletoe, in a horse drawn sled or when the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve, your proposal is sure to be perfect!
