4. Think About Long-Term Wear

An engagement ring is designed to be worn daily. Opt for durability by choosing high-quality materials and designs that can withstand the test of time and maintain their brilliance for years to come. Consider her lifestyle as well. If she's active or works with her hands, a low-profile setting might be more practical.
