Different Type Of Engagement Rings

Picking the perfect engagement ring is one of the most stressful decisions a person will make in their life, but also one of the most exciting times of your life. There are so many different types of engagement rings and it can be difficult to pick the right one. There are many different areas to consider when picking an engagement ring which includes the diamond, the style and the ring itself.


The first thing to consider when picking the perfect engagement ring as there are many different options. The cut of a diamond is what makes the most difference to the appearance of the diamonds. There are many types of cut for a diamond and range from oval and marquise to round and brilliant. Both brilliant and round cuts can be combined to make a round brilliant cut which is also one of the most popular cuts of diamonds to choose from. Other than the cut, the clarity, colour and carat are mostly have to do with the colour and size of the diamond which will affect the price of the diamond. The carat of the diamond is basically the size of the diamond which will mean that the larger the diamond, the more expensive the diamond will be. If you are not a diamond specialist, colour and clarity are the least important things to consider as you will only see these differences close up.

The Band

The next decision when picking an engagement ring is the type of metal the ring is going to be made out of. You could go from silver and gold to platinum. Platinum is one of the most popular choices in recent years just like round brilliant cuts are today. If you wanted to go with more of a story to a ring such as vintage jewellery, then you may need to make some compromises to the diamond so that you can get the right design that you want. Having a vintage engagement ring is certainly going to be more sentimental as it can have a story behind it which makes the romance even stronger but obviously, this will have an adverse effect if your future fiance prefers more modern designs.

The Price

Depending on the ring you are looking for, the price can increase dramatically, the lower priced engagement rings, you can pick them up for a couple of hundred pounds which would usually be CZ diamonds and cheaper materials which you don’t really want to go for as they won’t last. The other end of the spectrum could be a big diamond or expensive materials which will then cost millions of pounds. The standard rule is that you should spend around 3-6 months salary on an engagement ring but this is obviously to get as much money from you as possible. In realistic opinions, you should spend what you can afford.
