What do I need to indicate for alloy?

The alloy is the material the ring is made from. If you are interested in buying a ring with a brilliant for her, or with a gem other than a diamond, then you can choose from white gold, yellow gold, red gold and platinum. Which of these alloys you decide on for her engagement ring will be dependent on several factors.

Make sure you take any possible allergies, favourite colours and, of course, your budget into account. It’s very easy to keep an eye on that last factor with the handy price filter.

Why are brilliants not listed with gems?

You are interested in buying a ring with a brilliant, but you can only see diamond, ruby, emerald and sapphire? That’s very normal. Many people don’t know the difference between a diamond and a brilliant and will subsequently often confuse the two. In short: the brilliant is a round cut diamond. So you simply indicate ‘diamond’ in the selection menu.

Buying a ring with a brilliant as an engagement ring is very popular. After all, the brilliant shines the brightest of all the different diamond cuts. Your future wife will be left speechless if you decide on buying a ring with a brilliant!   

Which cut should I go for?

If you have set your sights on buying a ring with a brilliant, you need to opt for ‘round’ here. As stated before, the brilliant is the round cut of a diamond. But perhaps you’re also considering an alternative to the brilliant. If you opt for ‘square’, you will be taken to the princess cut diamond. Why go for a solitaire ring with princess cut instead of buying a ring with a brilliant?

Generally speaking princess cut is cheaper. However, there is a minor difference in the shine and brilliance. Opting for an oval cut is opting for tradition with a distinctive touch. Pear-shaped is most often chosen for pendants and earrings as a result of its unique tear shape.
