In a previous post we gave some tips on things to know before you begin to look for engagements rings. Now that you’ve thought about budget, diamond shape, and a setting, we’ve broken down the buying process into 3 steps for you:
- We always recommend starting with the diamond first. Our diamond education section will provide you with all the information you need about the 4 c’s and various diamond shapes to get you started. Each diamond shape is unique in its own way and offers something a little different in terms of look.
- After you choose your diamond, the setting is next. The setting, regardless of metal type or style, should always enhance the stone. The diamond should “stand out” and be the focal point of the ring.
- Lastly, metal type – A majority of settings you’ll look at are available in 18kt white gold, yellow gold, and platinum. If you like the look of white metal, platinum would be the way to go. Platinum should also be your choice if your significant other has metal allergies.
