What to look for when purchasing an engagement ring

When you wish to purchase an engagement ring, you are of course looking at finding the most perfect, elegant and stunning ring for your loved one, the ring that will make her scream of joy and say YES to your proposal.

But there are a couple of things that you need to pay attention to. The ring itself needs to be of good quality and manufactured to last a lifetime. You need to make sure you purchase the metal you want, whether, gold, platinum or other metals. The stones need to be set properly in order to avoid damage or loss. It may sound silly, but poor design could become a major issue once you have lost the 1ct or 2ct centre stone you had purchased.

The second important point you need to pay attention to is the stone itself, it has to be what you have in mind, according to your budget, and most of all, genuine and from a recognised supply chain, without any deceits or hidden flaws.

Where to look for the right information

As mentioned earlier, information on any topic is abundantly available to anyone, which per se is great, but it can also be a little daunting if you don’t exactly know what to look for.

We would recommend starting with reading articles from gemological associations about gemstones and diamonds as well as having a look at special jewellery websites such as the Jewellery Editor, to gather as much information as possible on the topic and gather images on beautiful designs.

Then, once you have a better idea of what you would like, we would recommend reading the official gemological laboratories websites as there is detailed technical information about diamonds that could be very useful.
