How to Choose an Engagement Ring

If you’re looking for an engagement ring, congratulations, it’s a lovely time, but it can be a bit overwhelming, don’t worry, you got this 💪
There are so many styles to choose from, and so many things to consider, from style, to size, to budget, and perhaps, above all, practicality, an engagement ring gets worn everyday, so it needs to tick lots of boxes.

1. Consider Your Partner's Style: Pay attention to the types of jewellery your partner wears. Do they prefer classic and timeless pieces, or are they drawn to more modern and unique designs? Take cues from their existing jewellery collection and personal style preferences.

2. Know the 4 Cs: Familiarize yourself with the 4 Cs of diamonds: cut, colour, clarity, and carat weight. These factors determine the quality and value of the diamond. Decide which of these factors are most important to you and your partner, and prioritize accordingly.

3. Set a Budget: Determine your budget before you start shopping for an engagement ring. This will help narrow down your options and ensure you find a ring that fits within your financial means. Remember, the perfect ring doesn't have to break the bank!

4. Choose the Right Metal: Consider the metal for the ring band. Common options include platinum, white gold, yellow gold, and rose gold. Choose a metal that complements your partner's skin tone and personal style.

5. Think About the Setting: Explore different setting styles for the diamond, such as solitaire, halo, pave, or vintage-inspired settings. Each setting style offers a unique look and feel, so choose one that reflects your partner's taste and personality.

6. Get the Right Size: If you're planning a surprise proposal, discreetly find out your partner's ring size ahead of time. You can borrow a ring from their jewellery box or enlist the help of a friend or family member to gather this information.

7. Consider Customisation: If you want to create a truly unique and meaningful ring, consider customizing the design. Many jewellers offer custom design services, allowing you to create a one-of-a-kind ring that perfectly captures your love story.

8. Trust Your Instincts: Ultimately, trust your instincts and choose a ring that feels right for you and your partner. It's the thought, love, and meaning behind the ring that truly matter.  


One thing that might be overlooked, that’s really important, is to choose something that won’t date. You can future proof it by going for something Antique, and if you want something timeless and cutting edge and bold at the same time, Art Deco is the perfect place to start looking.
The Art Deco movement is nearly a century old, and the beautiful jewellery that was made then has been extremely coveted now for 100 years. We can’t see the demand for Art Deco softening, the colours and the lines are beautiful, and the workmanship tends to be exquisite.

Remember, the most important thing is to choose a ring that symbolizes your love and commitment to each other. With a little thought and consideration, you'll find the perfect engagement ring that will be treasured for a lifetime.
