How to choose the Perfect Engagement Ring?
An engagement ring is a timeless symbol of love, commitment, and beauty. The question is, which ring will the “perfect” ring ?
Traditionally an engagement ring features a solitaire diamond in a simple, minimalist setting. Today, many prefer a less traditional approach, perhaps opting for ruby, sapphire, alexandrite, or another good durable gem as a center stone, and incorporating creative design elements to express their individual taste and style. This process is an opportunity for a couple to create something lasting together. There are no hard and fast rules, the only goal is to create a ring that provides lasting happiness and satisfaction.
So, should you go for a Diamond or, an alternative gemstone?
Diamonds are very hard and tough crystals, hence a practical choice as it is likely that you plan to wear your ring everyday. Other good choices are Ruby, Sapphire, Spinel, and Chrysoberyl, because they are also rated as hard gemstones. Also, they are available in a wonderful myriad of vibrant natural colours, giving a stunning array of unique tones and hues for you to choose from. From pastel to vivid tones, in thousands of hues of red, pink, blue, purple, green, orange, and yellow, a colour gemstone would give you a virtually unlimited variety of colour choices to find that special colour that is “your very own”.
And, what is the process of making a custom-design engagement ring?
Choosing what type of engagement ring is one of the first big choices new couples make together, and it can be a very fun and rewarding experience. Top jewellery designers work with the client, or often the couple together, to create a design with a personalised touch, expressing the wearer’s own life story and unique individual style. Careful listening, attention to detail, expert gem selection, and exquisite craftsmanship come together to enable designers and clients to work together and create a beautiful, individualised engagement ring that will bring joy and satisfaction for a lifetime.
Your ring tells your story. The decision of gemstone and design will be your individual choosing. With the right guidance, you will have created a unique expression for yourselves as a couple.
