Go in With Parameters in Mind

It is very common for a person to come into a pawn shop with a vague idea of what they want and to come out with something else entirely. We suggest that before you start shopping, you have a clear idea of what you are looking for. What is your budget? What size gem? Do you want a diamond or something else? What type of band do you want? The more information you have, the easier it will be to find what you are looking for.

Find the Right Pawn Shop

As is true of all other types of retail stores, not all pawn shops are created equal. When you are shopping for an engagement ring, we recommend choosing one that focuses specifically on precious gems. Make sure the shop you choose has a current business license. Check out their ratings. Remember that you are buying a piece of jewelry that will hopefully be worn for the rest of your beloved’s life – make sure you choose the right shop.

Utilize the Buddy System

If possible, bring a friend or family member of your significant other so they can weigh in on what type of ring your partner would want. Of course, choose someone you can trust to keep the ring a secret? If you can’t find anyone from their side, choose a friend or family member of your own. The key is to come in with a buddy who can help you make the right choice about which ring to buy.

Take Your Time

One of the biggest mistakes you can make is to buy the first ring you see. When you visit GNJ Pawn Big, you are going to have access to many options. You may fall in love with one right away, only to find one 20 minutes later that is absolutely perfect. Note anything you like and come back to it, but give the rings time to sink in.

If you need help finding the right engagement ring then we urge you to contact GNJ Pawn Big at (661) 224-1999. We offer affordable options in just about any size or style you need. We look forward to being part of your special day.
