Choosing an engagement ring is not something you do lightly. You have to wear it around your finger for the rest of your life, so it is pretty normal that you want to make the right decision.

How do you choose the right alloy for an engagement ring?

As mentioned before, an engagement ring remains around you finger for a long period of time. The choice of alloy thus definitely depends on your daily activities. That way you can make sure your ring is sufficiently resistant against everyday wear and tear. Of course, maintenance is very important as well if you want to keep your ring as beautiful as possible. You can base your choice on your personal style. If you prefer something more discreet, it is best to choose a ring with a sober and sleek design that suits you.

What colour to choose for an original engagement ring?

The alloy that is chosen most often for an engagement ring is white gold. This gold is subtle and suits everything. With this material, you can wear your ring for every occasion. White gold is made from yellow gold in composition with other metals which give it its silver colour. You do have to pay more attention to its maintenance in order to preserve the beautiful shine. If you love rings that are completely fashionable then white gold is definitely something for you.

Yellow gold is a material that is often used for engagement rings as well. As it is both classic and timeless, you will always be able to wear it. Yellow gold engagement rings need less maintenance. You do have to pay attention to the number of carats in the design to be sure of its excellent quality. You are able to wear yellow gold every day without it damaging or its colour fading.

Platinum is also a very popular alloy for an engagement ring. It is of course naturally white and therefore keeps its colour for a very long time. If you suffer from any allergies, the platinum engagement ring is perfect for you because platinum is hypoallergenic. Finally, you should know that platinum is denser than gold, meaning you need more of it than gold for the same ring.

The choice of your engagement ring depends on your taste and budget. Whether it is a white gold, yellow gold or platinum engagement ring, you will definitely find the design of your dreams in the extensive collection of BAUNAT. There are countless designs that you can wear for every occasion.
