How to choose an Engagement Ring

Choosing an engagement ring can be a daunting task, but here are some tips to help you make an informed decision (and remember, we are here to help you!):

  1. Set a budget: Engagement rings come in a variety of styles and price points, so it's important to determine how much you want to spend before you start shopping.

  2. Consider the Four Cs: When choosing a diamond engagement ring, you'll want to consider the Four Cs: cut, colour, clarity, and carat weight. Each of these factors can affect the overall appearance and value of the diamond. All our diamonds are ethically sourced, and we can also discuss other sustainable alternatives such as Laboratory grown diamonds and Moissanite.

  3. Know your partner's style: Pay attention to your partner's jewellery preferences to get a sense of their style. Do they prefer classic or modern styles? Do they typically wear yellow gold or white gold? This can help you choose a ring that suits their taste.

  4. Choose the right setting: The setting can also impact the overall look of the ring. Common settings include claw, bezel, and pave. Consider which one will showcase the diamond in the way you want it to.  Our Designer Jo will lead you through these styles & details.

  5. Consider alternative stones: If your partner isn't a fan of diamonds, there are other stones you can consider, such as sapphires, emeralds, or rubies.  

  6. Think about the band: The band of the ring is also important to consider. Do you want a simple band or something more ornate? What type of metal do you want to use?

  7. Get the ring insured: Once you've chosen the ring, make sure to get it insured to protect your investment. We can make sure you're covered with a full valuation for insurance purposes.

Remember, the most important thing is to choose a ring that you and your partner love and that represents your commitment to each other.
