    Men have been buying engagement rings for women for generations. And if you're a man thinking of proposing to someone, you're undoubtedly thinking about buying a diamond ring or wedding band. With a little help, you should have too much trouble choosing the perfect engagement ring for the love of your life. Just be sure to remember that the size of the jewel is often less important than it's cut and clarity. Most women would prefer to own a slightly smaller gem stone of an exceptional quality, than a larger diamond with noticeable imperfections. It's also important to remember that some women prefer gold wedding bands, while others prefer silver. Some even prefer a mixture of platinum and titanium. Gold and silver are typically considered more fine and fashionable, though. And they complement a variety of jewels incredibly well. You should also remember that some women prefer antique, rather than modern, rings. These antiques are often better-designed than their contemporary counterparts, and they are frequently cheaper, as well. Sometimes they need to be repaired or refinished a bit, but little can compare to their handmade elegance. And finally, you should remember that most women hope that their fiances will continue to occasionally buy them jewelry even after they've gotten engaged. Women love to receive watches, bracelets, and earrings from time to time. Most of them even enjoy receiving religious pendants when the occasion is appropriate. So, when you stop by a jewelry store to pick up a ring for your bride-to-be, you might also want to consider purchasing a jade necklace, or some other item of jewelry, for her too.
