You’ve decided you want to pop the question or you’ve both come to a decision to get married. Whatever your budget is for an engagement ring it is a very important purchase that you want to get right as it’s going to be on her finger forever!

This blog post will give you some pointers on the different styles of engagement rings, to help you find the right ring for your right lady! Next month’s blog post will give you a crash course in diamonds to help you understand the different cut, carat, colour and clarity of diamond to choose.

The style of the ring is one of the first things to think about, has your future bride pointed out any rings she likes? Is her style quite classic or does she prefer a vintage look? The style of engagement rings do vary and sometimes people opt for a style that isn’t a ‘usual’ engagement ring but suits the person who will be wearing the ring, for example a band set with diamonds all the way or half way round and not a ring with a single stone.

Another thing to consider when choosing her engagement ring is the kind of wedding ring she will later be wearing with it, some engagement rings are ‘wed fit’ which means a wedding ring can fit perfectly next to the ring; if a single diamond is set high enough for the wedding ring to sit next to/under it. However some engagement rings will need a shaped wedding ring so both the rings sit nicely next to each other.

Solitaire engagement rings are generally set with one stone and are more of a classic choice; however some solitaire rings do have diamonds set either side of the solitaire diamond in the middle for that extra sparkle and is a vintage inspired style. The diamond cut (shape of the diamond) of a solitaire ring is also something you will need to decide on and this will be covered in next month’s diamond blog post.

Trilogy engagement rings are set with three diamonds. Trilogy rings have a vintage feel to them and may offer more of a sparkle than a single diamond. There are also other styles available of rings such as diamond cluster engagement rings.

Considering the style of the engagement ring is extremely important but so is the diamond(s) you choose for the ring and the metal of the band. Next month’s blog post will help you with this!
