The Gentlemen’s Curb is a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way. However, life isn’t just fashion and fitness. At some point, some of our readers will be looking to propose to their mates. I know! Just know that we aren’t wishing death on anyone or forcing our readers to get engaged. We are here to simply help you with some pointers to find the perfect engagement ring.

No matter whether you are looking for the perfect engagement ring to surprise your girlfriend with, or you have already been proposed to and you are looking for a ring together, it is important to approach the shopping process with a lot of care and consideration. After all, this ring is going to be adorning your left hand for the rest of your life, and it is a representation of the love you and your other half share. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some top tips for finding the perfect engagement ring.

  • Think about forever – This is one of the most important tips when it comes to finding an engagement ring. This is where a lot of people go wrong because they focus on what is hot right now, rather than thinking about designs that are going to stand the test of time. An engagement ring needs to look just as beautiful ten years down the line as it does.
  • Do your research before buying from a store – When buying an engagement ring, you need to choose a jewelry store with care. It’s important to invest in a quality store that will be more than willing to assist you with resizing or any other after services that are required. The best thing to do is read reviews that have been left by others. A good place to start is with this must-read Blue Nile review | Your Diamond Guru has provided. You can find plenty of other reviews like this about other companies on the web too, forming the perfect basis for your shopping.
  • Look for inspiration – It is a good idea to spend some time looking at photographs of engagement rings online. Thanks to the likes of Instagram and Pinterest, this is a lot easier than it ever has been.
  • Think about the style of jewelry you or your partner usually wears – If you or your partner typically wear silver jewelry, going for a gold engagement ring is probably not the best idea. Instead, look for something that is going to match the type of jewelry they wear on a daily basis. This does not only relate to metal type but also the style of jewelry, for example, whether it is subtle and understated or bold and striking.
    • Learn about diamonds – Last but not least, it is important to educate yourself about diamonds before buying one, of course, if a diamond engagement ring is a route you are going to go down. All diamonds are graded based on their clarity, color, carat size, and cut. You need to learn about these four aspects so that you know exactly what you are getting for your money.

    If you follow the advice that has been mentioned above, you should have no trouble finding the perfect engagement ring for yourself or the person you love. Remember, it is important to think about longevity and to do your research. Do this, and you can’t go too wrong.

The ‘Curb’s Essential Phone Review- The Gentlemen’s Curb Plus Male Influencer

In Lifestyle On The 'Curb

I have been an Android fanatic since the beginning. I was so excited about Google’s first phone called the G-1!  I loved the open source market and how Amazon shopping was once integrated into the Android Market. (It’s also bizarre that the port for charger and headset were the same. I hated it then. Now, it seems to be the standard for the phones.)

The Essential Phone

In the shortage of stock Android phones, a company rose and debuted the Essential PH-1. The company is a new company made by one of the first developers of the Android operating system. No logo, no bizarre designs, just a high-quality phone. I was excited! I didn’t understand the marketing plan, but I gave it a shot! I am an Android fanatic as stated, so I didn’t have much to lose.

The Essential Phone

What I dislike about the phone is that some of the “essentials” weren’t considered.
The camera is could be so much better. There are dual cameras, but the mark is missed. The camera is also lacking a lot of features in my opinion. (I will be using my iPhone for the camera.)

The screen is impressive, but there is a camera in the middle! It’s an eyesore. It throws off the dynamics of the phone. The phone also boasts the worlds first 360 cameras for a smartphone.

Essential Phone

I have an iPhone 7 and comparing the processing speed in recording the fingerprints. There was a significant difference! I was absolutely impressed. The RAM and memory for the phone are impressive! The phone runs smoothly and I am using 21 gigs already. As of yet, I haven’t received one crash report yet. I purposefully leave as many apps as I can running. And the phone’s hardware is able to run all of the apps with ease.

The phone’s speaker is absolutely impressive. It overpowered the iPhone 7 and the Samsung S8 .
The phone is very sturdy. I dropped the phone three times accidentally and there wasn’t a scratch on the phone. The phone is made with some titanium components. (I am a fairly tall man, so my fear with smartphones is dropping them, but not with the essential phone.) I love the design of the device. I love that the Essential phone charges quickly. It helps especially with blogging and always being on the go.

Team Essential can only go forward from here. A very strong first showing. I am very impressed. The phone reminds me of my Motorola Nexus. Now if I can only find a headset and a phone case because that’s an absolute chore! Great work, I am looking forward to more from the essential team in the future.
