Are you ready to pop the question? Then you probably already have an idea of how and where you want to experience this beautiful moment with your loved one. Now it’s time to buy the engagement ring! The choice of engagement rings is enormous, and, of course, you want to propose with the right ring. But what exactly is the right ring for your partner? With these 4 tips, you’ll get a more in-depth view of the different types of rings, from the solitaire ring to the eternity ring. We’ll help you figure out what your beloved likes best, because that's the most important thing, right?

Conversations about jewellery

Once you’ve made the decision to propose, you can try to direct the conversations towards jewellery to make sure you pick the right engagement ring. How else would you know which style is the best? Big, small, all round set with diamonds or a solitaire ring? If the subject is too hard to approach discreetly, or you didn’t get enough information, then opt for a solitaire ring. It’s the number one choice for engagement rings and is set with only one diamond that, just like your fiancé(e), shines bright and deserves all the attention.

Other sources of inspiration

Instead of talking to your fiancé(e) about rings, you can definitely use your friends and family as a source of inspiration. Buying an engagement ring is not something that can be done on a whim. Someone who already went through the experience can give you useful tips to help you choose between an eternity ring, solitaire ring and other types of engagement rings. You could also contact their friends. And don’t be afraid to browse online to find some inspiration.

They all look the same

When you start your search for the perfect engagement ring, all diamond rings might look very similar. But nothing could be further from the truth. Even a solitaire ring with only one diamond can be found in many different precious metals, settings and colours. Will you choose a classic yellow gold ring or a timeless white gold ring? Does your partner prefer a setting in which the diamond is secured by both sides of the ring band? Perhaps a solitaire ring in a traditional bezel setting (where the diamond is framed with metal) is more their style? Delve into the world of engagement rings, and learn more about the different settings to find out how to pick the right engagement ring.

Beauty versus quality

Obviously, the choice of the ring and the choice of the diamond depends on your budget. Choosing a more affordable diamond of a lesser clarity and colour grade doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on quality. In fact, you probably won’t be able to tell the difference with the naked eye. But, in this case, it’s better to choose a solitaire ring in white gold or platinum because the colour of these precious metals enhances the brilliance of the diamond.
