How to Choose an Engagement Ring Style

You’ve found the girl, and now you need to find the perfect ring. Choosing an engagement ring can be a daunting, confusing task, especially if you wish to surprise the one you love.

It takes time, research and thought to find the perfect engagement ring. Be romantic – choose to present her with a ring that is not only guaranteed to please, but also suit her style and personality.

Questions such as your budget, type of gemstone or Diamond, finger size, and scale of ring start to come to mind. But first, you need to understand her style. Does she worship the modern, or love vintage styles? Is she minimalist or complex? Clues to her style will be found in what she wears, how she styles her home, her choice of handbag, and the type of jewellery she wears – be it costume jewellery or fine jewellery.

We’ve come up with five ring design categories to help make the choice an easy one.

She’s convention defying and doesn’t necessarily want a Diamond engagement ring. Choose a hypnotic blue sapphire engagement ring or a luscious red ruby engagement ring. Perhaps an Aquamarine ring to match the colour of her eyes. A coloured gemstone engagement ring is often less costly than a Diamond engagement ring and can be playful and fun.
