Choosing the best engagement ring is never an easy task. You’re probably already a bit nervous about the actual proposal, so the stress of buying a ring adds to that. You want to make sure it’s perfect, and also something that your loved one will be blown away by. That’s where specialist master jewellers like Catanach’s come in. We take the stress out of finding the right engagement ring so you can focus on the proposal. There are several things to consider when buying an engagement ring. Naturally the quality of materials is paramount, but it’s not the only consideration. Here are a few things to consider. What are your loved one’s tastes in jewellery? Firstly, you need to consider the tastes of your loved one. If she’s not into big, flashy jewellery then an enormous sparkling diamond ring probably isn’t the right choice. Rather, you could choose designs featuring smaller diamonds arranged more subtly. If your partner has particular stones or colours they like, it’s worth taking note of this. Check the rest of their jewellery collection to get an idea of their favourite metals and stones. They key choices – metal, stones and design The main considerations when choosing the best engagement ring are the type of metal used, the stones and the design. Metals such as silver, gold, white gold and rose gold are all popular for rings. The list of stones is almost endless. While diamonds are incredibly popular for engagement rings, there are a range of different coloured stones available also. When it comes to the design, this is obviously a very personal taste. It might be a small band with a larger stone. Perhaps a thicker band with small diamonds set in the band. The choices are limitless, and a master jeweller can help you create something unique and beautiful. Custom jewellery can be treasured forever Many people favour custom jewellery when choosing the best engagement ring for their loved one. This is partly because it adds a personal touch, and shows how much effort you’ve put in to the ring and the proposal. A marriage proposal should make the other person feel special and on top of the world, and custom jewellery certainly does that. In addition, the engagement ring is a symbol of your love. Since everyone is unique, it’s nice to know that your loved one is receiving a ring that nobody else in the world can share. You can book bespoke jewellery consultations with a master jeweller and let them bring your ideas to life. It’s the perfect way to get a ring that will be cherished forever.
