The Guy’s Guide: Seven Steps to Getting Engaged
Guys find it difficult to know where to start. Let’s be honest - it’s stressful! You’re picking out a piece of jewelry she’ll wear every day for the rest of her life, not to mention asking her to spend that time with you! We’ve broken down the engagement process down into a few simple steps.
Look at Her Pinterest for Inspiration
Many ladies have plenty of info to go off. Even if she doesn’t have a wedding board, you’ll get an idea of her personal style and wish list.
Decide What's Most Important to You
There are lots of options in buying a ring. What is more important; the best quality of diamond? The biggest carat possible? A unique band? There are lots of options. At J.F. Kruse, we do diamonds differently and work directly with diamond cutters so we can get you the right diamond and the right price.
Have a Budget in Mind
Don’t start shopping until you have a good idea of how much you are willing and able to spend.
Go to the Store
At J.F. Kruse, our staff is always available and eager to help you with any questions. Just stop in and get started. We don’t do commissions, so our staff is focused on finding what is right for you. We don’t persuade you to buy a certain type or size of diamond.
Look at Different Stone Options
There are a few of them. Solitaire, Halo, three-stone - and those are just ring styles! Would your lady like a Princess cut stone? A lab-grown diamond? A Vintage style band? We’ll guide you through the options and help you pick the best one, or you can create your own with our custom design service, which is free!
Buy the Ring
J.F. Kruse has a variety of financing options available if you need them, including layaway. Just ask, and we’ll be happy to talk about your options. Our Fair Price Philosophy guarantees you the best price; no false markups or markdowns to make you think you’re getting a good deal. We fairly price our jewelry right from the start.
This part is up to you. There are plenty of ways to do it; some cliche, some simple. Some unique to each couple. Think of what she would love best and remember for years to come.
That’s it! Seems simple, right? Just a few steps and voila! You’re engaged! Still not convinced it’s that simple? Stop into J.F. Kruse and we’ll help ease your anxiety.
