When it comes to searching for the right ring, one might get overwhelmed with the search on internet. But, do you actually know what's her pick? In terms of practicality, trend, durability, timeless design, etc. Obviously, this is money that you can't avoid spending so I'd suggest to scout for all the alternatives and options available before making your decision. In this blog, I will list down a few points which i think is important whilst getting the right ring.
First, let's start of with the centre stone. There are different shapes and sizes but which are the one to go for? You have to know what is to her liking. You can try by asking her what's her favourite pick during conversations or just simply visit any jewelries store to get an idea her liking. I'm sure you can start of somewhere with this approach.
So, after you have selected a few shapes. Now, it's time for you to choose on the stone size. Not necessary big is the best. You need to know her finger size and which stone size is best suited for her. Asian size are normally between HK size 9 to HK size 13 and the stone size for such ring size are usually around 0.5 carat to 2 carat which is appealing to the eyes. If the stone size is huge and her finger size is small, the rock will be shouting for attention and the overall proportion may be abit off. Anyway, it still comes down to personal preferences.
Choosing the right engagement ring style is one of the most important steps in buying an engagement ring for your fiancé-to-be. The ring setting plays a role not just in determining how the ring looks, but also in determining which type of cutting is the best option for you.
Engagement ring styles can vary hugely in appearance and personality. For example, look at this solitaire ring, then compare it to this triple row halo engagement ring. Despite being made from the same metal, the style of these two rings couldn’t be more different — with different price tags to match.
Luckily, working out the best engagement ring style for your fiancé-to-be isn’t as difficult as it first seems. This is because each engagement ring style has its own unique advantages and disadvantages.
For example, some styles are light, simple and elegant, making them great choices if your fiancé-to-be likes simple, timeless beauty.
Others are more eye-catching and decorative, with pavé or halo diamonds and engraving to add to the ring’s beauty.
Finally, others are designed with durability in mind, making them great for busy, active people or those who work with their hands.
Solitaire Engagement Ring
Classic solitaire is always the safest choice. Why? Their design are simple yet timeless and will last for decades. There is no greater symbol of love and devotion other than the solitaire engagement ring. We know that rings were used as a symbol of relationships as far back as the time of cavemen when couples would claim their mates with ring of grass. It is thought the first diamond ring was given to Mary Of Burgundy when Archduke Maximillian proposed in 1477. However, it wasn’t until 1886 that the world fell in love with the solitaire engagement ring.
