You have finally decided the time is here to propose to your beloved and you want the perfect engagement ring. After all, almost every proposal comes with a beautiful ring. Whether you choose to buy the engagement ring on your own or you plan to visit the jeweller as a couple, here are five steps you need to follow to choose the perfect engagement ring:

   

1. Style

If you decide to buy a ring by yourself, take the following rule into account: choose a style that matches your beloved’s current style. Art Deco designs are an excellent choice for a vintage style, or for a more traditional look you could go for a diamond solitaire engagement ring, which is a true classic. However, if it’s all a bit overwhelming, you can always find some inspiration on Instagram, Pinterest, etc.

It is easier to search for the ideal ring as a couple. Before you make your choice, try out many different styles. Nowadays, you have an abundance of options.  If you still cannot find what your beloved wants, you can always contact us for a tailor-made engagement ring.

2. Diamond Shape

When choosing an engagement ring, you primarily focus on the shape of the diamond(s). Does your future fiancé like a classic brilliant or a more modern princess cut? There are many other, more extravagant diamond shapes as well. Here, it is essential to take a look at the shape of his or her (ring) finger. For ladies with slender fingers for example, pear and oval-shaped diamonds are the ideal choices. If you would like multiple diamonds, then maybe a trilogy engagement ring is the best option. You can also choose different shapes. Does she love the princess cut and the brilliant-cut? Then choose a beautiful ring with matching brilliant earrings.

3. Quality

Diamond quality is usually a rather difficult choice. Do you want to go for a big diamond of somewhat lower quality or a smaller stone that shines brighter? We always recommend good quality diamonds. It is not the size that matters, and an engagement ring should, first of all, be beautiful.

4. Which Precious Metal?

Nowadays, platinum and white gold are the most popular precious metals, but yellow and red gold are high in demand as well.

5. The Budget

Before you choose an engagement ring, it is important to know what your budget is. On average, a man used to spend three monthly salaries on an engagement ring. However, these days people pay less attention to that rule. The most important thing is to buy a ring that your fiancée will like, whether it’s cheap or more expensive. An engagement ring is an investment for life, so whatever the budget, spend it. You will not regret it.
