Engagement Ring Shopping

Shopping Together for Engagement Rings

As you think about the engagement ring that illustrates your love, certain details may immediately come to mind. You know it must be handmade and vintage-inspired, a timeless piece that will become a part of the family story you create together. Now that you've found Kirk Kara, it's all about deciding which elements of design will set your ring apart. Together, you can show him which iconic collection you love and which details make you swoon because choosing a ring as a couple is a natural extension of your partnership. Our family has been designing bridal jewelry for 125 years and we’ve learned a thing or two about shopping for the ring that will truly captivate you forever. Here are three tips to make your day memorable:

1. Pre-shop: Use our filter tools at Kirkkara.com to narrow down your favorite looks. Browse options for centerstone design, metal type and color — even add your own customized details, like band engraving, filigree or additional stones. Add your favorites to your “Love These!” list to easily review your favorites later.

2. Make it a date: Most retailers are open later in the evening, so relax and have a fun dinner beforehand—the best decisions are never made while hungry! Choose a spot for dinner that sets a romantic tone for your evening together, maybe the place where you had your first date or the new place you've been dying to try. Consider shopping on a weeknight to avoid crowds and keep your experience intimate.

3. Find a professional: Plan ahead and make an appointment with a Kirk Kara authorized retail partner. Let them know which of our designs you’d like to see so that they can ensure those pieces are available when you arrive. Determine your budget and pick out the center diamond before you shop so that your soon-to-be-fiance can focus on the details for your forever-ring. Your shopping journey will culminate with the moment he points to the ring of your dreams and says, with confidence, "This is so you."
