What makes up an Engagement Ring?
An Engagement Ring basically consists of a diamond and a ring setting. The diamond often forms the main bulk of the cost of the engagement ring.
For the ring setting, she is going to wear this ring for the rest of her life, so you want to ensure she likes it. Whether you want your proposal to be a surprise, or you want her to be involved in the decision, here are the decisions you'll need to make:
Choose Between 18k Gold or Platinum
If you're unsure what ring metal to choose, consider the differences between 18k gold and platinum:
Choose a Setting Style
Lovida Diamonds offers a wide variety of engagement settings. For help in choosing, here's a summary of the three main styles.
This is our most popular engagement ring setting. The prongs position the center diamond to catch the most light. A four-prong setting shows a bit more diamond, while a six-prong setting offers a slight security advantage. View our solitaire settings.
A setting with diamonds or gemstones adds additional sparkle or color. Channel settings protect sidestones from abrasions by keeping them flush. The bar-channel setting allows more light to enter the sidestones, and creates a scalloped edge of brilliance.
For a classic ring that's truly unique and created by you, choose all three diamonds to be set in a three-stone setting. The three-stone ring has one diamond for the past, one for the present, and one for the future.
How do you choose a ring she'll love without her knowing?
How do you know if she'll like the ring if she doesn't pick it out? If you consider her tastes and lifestyle, you'll be sure to make the right choice.
- 1. Take a good look at the color of jewellery your partner wears. What color is the metal?
- 2. Ask her friends or mother if she has mentioned a preference for a particular type or style of ring.
- 3. Has she ever hinted to you on her dream ring?
Engagements are rarely an out-of-the-blue surprise, so it is common to discuss engagement ring choices with your partner. The only way to ensure you find a ring that will match her taste and style is to shop for a ring together. Whether you're shopping together or not, start by finding her ring size.
