Engagement Ring Guide

Choosing an engagement ring can be a daunting task, but with a little bit of knowledge and guidance, the process can be much easier. Here is a guide on how to choose an engagement ring:

  • Set your budget: The first step in choosing an engagement ring is to set your budget. Engagement rings can vary widely in price, so it's important to have a clear idea of how much you are willing to spend. A good rule of thumb is to spend two to three months' salary on an engagement ring, but ultimately the decision is up to you.
  • Determine the 4Cs: The 4Cs refer to the four characteristics that determine the value of a diamond: carat weight, color, clarity, and cut. Understanding these characteristics will help you choose the right diamond for your ring. Consider what is most important to you, and then prioritize accordingly.
  • Choose a diamond shape: Diamonds come in many different shapes, including round, princess, cushion, emerald, and pear. Choose a shape that you think your partner will love and that fits your budget.
  • Choose a metal: Engagement rings can be made of a variety of metals, including gold, platinum, and white gold. Each metal has its own unique properties and appearance, so choose one that fits your partner's style and preferences.
  • Consider the setting: The setting is the way in which the diamond is held in the ring. There are many different types of settings, including prong, bezel, and pave. Choose a setting that you think your partner will love and that showcases the diamond to its best advantage.
  • Think about your partner's style: The most important thing to consider when choosing an engagement ring is your partner's style and preferences. Look at the jewelry your partner currently wears to get an idea of what they like. Consider factors such as the size and shape of their hands, as well as their lifestyle and job, when choosing a ring.
  • Consider a custom ring: If you can't find the perfect ring, consider having one custom-made. This will allow you to create a unique and personalized ring that your partner will love. Contact us to learn more.
