How To Choose An Engagement Ring
To choose an engagement ring there are many considerations to make.
First and foremost you will need to decide on the style, then the metal and precious stone and then the budget which will determine size and quality of the precious stones used.
Finding her style
The advantage of making an appointment with a Jeweller like Loyes Diamonds is that we have such a huge selection of engagement rings. You can in the comfort of our private office view a multitude of styles and shapes and designs – and if we don’t stock exactly what you want we can custom design are ring to your exact specifications. When considering the perfect engagement ring you should take into account he ladies lifestyle and personality and daily activities. This should narrow down the choice for you.
Below are some recommendations into which the ladies style may fall –
Elegant and Traditional
For a timeless and elegant piece without distraction we would recommend the Solitaire engagement ring. It is the most popular style of ring and its unfussy approach highlights the single stone as the star attraction. It is uncompromisingly and without doubt ’the engagement ring’
The most popular style of solitaire engagement ring is either a four claw or a six claw diamond on a plain band. If you require diamonds on the band we would recommend a thin band to showcase the center stone as much as possible. Solitaire are for the most part round brilliant diamonds but princess cuts, emerald cuts and pear diamonds (tear-drop diamonds) are also very popular choices.
Outgoing and Stylish
To add a little more glamour to the ring the lady might prefer a slightly raised center stone and perhaps a halo or even a double halo to add even more sparkle to the setting. These melee stones are often scallop set or Pave set and sometimes you may find channel set stones on the band.
These halo engagement rings come in many shapes and sizes and have the added benefit of making the center stone look a lot larger. Easier on the pocket too ; )
Nature Loving or Eco Friendly
There are some ladies who like their ring to look organic often adding leaf or vine like features and contouring the ring around their fingers. If the lady is very active, she might consider a more robust setting that protects the diamond more than other settings. These settings are called bezel settings.
For the eco conscious lady there is the option of lab grown diamonds whereby the diamond is actually created in a lab rather than mined. These diamonds have a less detrimental effect on the environment.
For the Lady that wishes to stand out from the crowd and be that little bit different there are a number of options. She can either try a one of a kind style ring designed by myself or one of our expert designers. We have years of experience in creating unique pieces for those looking for something just a little different.
If the Lady or gent would like to design a ring themselves we will offer our full support and advise on the various steps to create their dream engagement ring.
