Engagement Ring Guide
Buying an engagement ring is one of the biggest purchases you’ll ever make. This guide is here to simplify the process of finding the perfect engagement ring.
Before you start shopping for an engagement ring, it’s best to set a budget. This can narrow down your search and help you find the perfect engagement ring within your price range.
A centre diamond holds the greatest value in an engagement ring which is why you should look at this right after you’ve set your budget. There are about 10 different shapes with round, cushion and princess-cut diamonds being the most popular.
You may come across a term called the 4C’s , this refers to a diamond’s cut, colour, clarity and carat (weight). Diamonds graded according to these criteria are certified by one of the top laboratories: GIA, IGI or HRD. Certified diamonds are laser inscribed and guarantee you get what you pay for.
Engagement ring style preferences are unique to each individual and reflect their distinct taste, personality and lifestyle. There are endless options to choose from which is why it is important to compare factors such as: modern or vintage, understated or luxurious and so forth.
A helpful tip is to choose a metal colour that matches her existing jewellery. The engagement rings we carry are available in platinum, 18k white gold, 18k yellow gold and 18k rose gold, with platinum being the most expensive.
