Style

Choosing the right style is important as the whole ring needs to reflect your couple, this new life together and of course it needs to correspond to the style of your fiancée to be.

If you enjoy a more elegant and classic style, we would recommend the timeless solitaire where the centre stone is the centrepiece of the ring and the ring itself is more decorative. Then you also have the slightly more elaborate solitaires where the centre stone is surrounded by a myriad of small diamonds adding even more brilliance to the design.

If you want to walk off the beaten path, then why not opt for a designer engagement ring and then the options are limitless and can vary in size, shape, theme and material, the choice is yours.

Stones

Whichever ring design you have chosen, now comes an important step, choosing the stone that will illuminate the ring and here there are many options to choose from. From the ultimate white diamonds, to natural fancy coloured diamonds or coloured gemstones such as sapphires, rubies, emeralds. Choosing the gemstone is a matter of taste; it can be based on your favourite colour, a lore or legend you know about or simply a family tradition.

All stones have their intrinsic beauty and you should always follow your heart when choosing.

Price

Although it may not be so much of a question for some people, it is important to know how much you are willing to spend not to overdo it, as it is quite easy to get carried away in the heat of the moment.

It’s important to understand what your budget and your limit are and work with that to find the perfect ring for you. 

Size

You’ve followed the first three steps and have it all ready, but do you have your fiancée’s ring size? It would be a pity if you purchased the ring in the wrong size and had to have it resized keeping your fiancée from being able to show it off after the proposal. There are a lot of tips you can find online to guide you to measure the correct ring size.
