The fall is a great time to get engaged in Knoxville. Before you pop the question, you need to shop for the engagement ring. Markman’s has been proudly serving the Knoxville and Chattanooga area for over 45 years. When you think about jewelry stores in Knoxville and Chattanooga, we want to be your first choice. Having over 45 years in the jewelry business makes us the perfect place to start shopping for jewelry in Knoxville and Chattanooga.
We have helped Knoxville brides and grooms prepare for one of the most important days of their lives by helping them learn about different styles, diamonds, and types of gold. Buying jewelry is not only a large investment financially, but also emotionally. Being an educated jewelry buyer is very important, and it goes beyond trying to decided between the four C’s (Color, Cut, Carat and Clarity). Because jewelry is a personal statement, our associates want to spend the time needed to make sure you understand all your options when it comes to jewelry shopping in Knoxville.
It is important for you to have an idea about your partners style and taste before you start shopping. Having this information will allow our staff to help you narrow your search, and will be able to provide some specific guidance in finding that perfect piece of jewelry for your perfect person.
So, it’s time to get engaged. Where do you start? You need to start your jewelry buying experience with taking a little time to research first.
We recommend shopping with your partner. Of course most people want to keep the element of surprise, so keeping the actual plans about proposals under-wraps is key.
Here is a creative way to get your partner in the jewelry store in Knoxville:
- Decide on something you are personally looking for- a watch, a pair of cuff links, a new chain or a new pair of earrings, a gift for mom, or anything other than an engagement ring.
- Ask your partner to help you pick out the piece of jewelry you are shopping for.
- While in the store, casually make your way to the engagement rings.
From there you can use several tactics to get the local jeweler, or sales associate to help pull things from the case. Use the time to narrow your search. Does your partner prefer white, or yellow gold? Platinum, or rose gold? What diamond shape do they seem to be drawn to?
Now you will have a starting point when you do visit your local jewelry store in Knoxville.
Can’t get your partner into the store? Check and see if they have a Pinterest page (this is a great way to uncover their jewelry style).
Finally, if you can’t get them into the jewelry store to shop and can’t find any intel online, it’s time to check for reactions. Send the rings you think they’d like and “Ask for a friend”… Tell them your friend is getting engaged, and they showed you a ring. Ask for your partners opinion about that ring.
However you start your search for finding a jewelry store in Knoxville to do your initial engagement ring shopping, we hope you will visit Markman’s Diamonds and allow our 45 years plus years of experience help you start your forever.
