One of the many fascinating qualities of diamonds is that no two are ever the same. The same may be said about prospective spouses since each person is unique in their way. So, when shopping for engagement rings, finding a piece that fits their unique style is essential.
To begin, diamonds and mountings are frequently sold separately.
First, let’s go over something many people don’t know: centre-piece stones and their settings are often offered individually. Shopping for engagement rings often involves picking out two components: the main stone (typically a white diamond) and the mounting (the metal framework that holds your centre stone).
The central stone in some rings is already there.
According to jewellers, the diamond cut should be your first concern.
Jewellery professionals often advise you to put cut at the top of your list when evaluating a diamond. Curious as to why? A poorly cut diamond will appear lifeless and dark because it will not reflect any light either.
Form and environment determine attire.
The shape of the centre stone and the setting you choose will have the most noticeable effect on the overall look of your wedding ring. The setting of your engagement ring is also an important design consideration. Classic, vintage-inspired, modern, distinctive, and countless more styles are all possible for the settings.
Place Your Pre-Orders
If you’re purchasing a present ring, your jeweller will need time to set the diamond of your choice in the engagement ring’s setting. A further caveat is that some wedding rings are custom-made, which might add time to the process. So, if you want to propose a specific day and still have the wedding ring delivered in time, you should order it far in advance. Six weeks is a fair rule of thumb, giving you plenty of breathing room, but you should check with your jeweller to get an accurate estimate of how long it will take to make your ring.
This leads us to point six: There is no “right” amount to spend.
Perhaps you’ve heard that a wedding ring should cost a specific amount. The conventional wisdom is that a wedding ring should cost at least three months’ worth of wages. To be clear, there is no standard for how much you should spend on a wedding ring. Spend only what is reasonable for you. Instead of blindly following arbitrary “rules” for budgeting, you should consider your finances. Then, choose a wedding ring at whatever price point you are comfortable with.
As a Seven, you can continually improve later.
You may always upgrade to a more extravagant ring later on if you aren’t able to afford it when you are engaged. If you can’t afford the perfect diamond or setting now, remember that updating wedding rings on special occasions like anniversaries and birthdays is standard practice.
Be familiar with valuable metals.
The mountings of wedding rings can be found in various precious metals. In addition, the same set design is generally possible in various precious metals. Platinum, white gold, yellow gold, and rose gold are the most common metals in wedding rings. The precious metal will impact the appearance and the critical care of the ring you select.
Contrary to popular belief, jewellery warranties are different from insurance.
Warranty coverage is sometimes confused with jewellery insurance, although the two are quite distinct. Jewellery insurance may protect you from unforeseen events like theft or loss, while warranties like our Peace of Mind extended maintenance plan can keep your ring looking new for as long as you own it.
