Fred’s B.E.S.T. Rules

Know the rules so you can stay in the game
What are the four things all consumers need to do to get their BEST start before buying the perfect diamond?

Budget
   Figure out what you’ve got to spend and stick to it. One month’s salary is a good guideline.

Expectations
   Listen to her. Try to understand her expectations (her needs and wants) so you’ll have a feel for what to pick out.

Savvy
   Become savvy! Know what any given diamond should cost and what the best qualities to wear. Knowledge is power. You’ll never win the race without training.

Timetable
   Figure out when you want to give it to her and don’t rush. Haste makes waste. Give yourself enough time to study up, shop around, and plan the perfect proposal.
