There is no better or more timeless way to tell her she’s the one than with the heartfelt presentation of a shining diamond in a beautiful setting. Engagement rings are the classic symbol of the commitment to a lifetime of love. Here are a few tips to help you say “I love you” with the perfect engagement ring.

At first glance, shopping for engagement rings might seem like a rather overwhelming process. There are just so many different types of stones, different settings, and different metals to choose from. Of course you want to find the ring that’s just perfect for her, reflecting her personal taste and style, but where do you start? Fortunately, the search for engagement rings can be easily broken down into smaller segments, helping you to narrow the selection down to “the one.”

Choosing a Solitaire

Diamond engagement rings are by far the most traditional choice, but these days you’ll find engagement rings that feature alternate types of gemstones, as well, whether these are showcased in a prong setting as a solitaire or integrated into the overall design, as accents. So the first step in finding that perfect ring is to decide what type of gemstone you’re looking for.

Diamond solitaires come in several different shapes. This is referred to as the “cut” of the diamond. Selecting your favorite cut(s) of diamond is the next step in your search for engagement rings.

Choosing a Setting

Determining the best setting for a solitaire is a matter of durability, practicality and personal taste. The most common metals used in the creation of engagement rings are 14k or 18k gold (both yellow and white) and platinum. 24k gold and silver are poor choices for engagement rings, as they are too soft to secure the solitaire and endure long-term daily wear. Once you’ve decided on your preferred metal, there is the matter of the style of the setting. A 4 or 6 prong setting is recommended to safely secure the solitaire. The next consideration, then, is choosing a setting that suits your love’s lifestyle. High settings are generally inconvenient for very active women as these rings can easily catch on things. On the other hand, high settings tend to feature the diamond in a more elegant and captivating light. This aspect of engagement rings is a matter of personal preference, and only you know her well enough to choose accordingly.

Diamond Accents

Diamond accents are smaller diamonds designed around the solitaire to create a look that’s both unique and dazzling – just like her! This is where an engagement ring really takes on a character of its own, turning a solitaire diamond or gemstone into a ring that will make her heart flutter – just like you do!

For generations, people have been saying “I love you” with engagement rings. Use these tips to help you find the perfect ring to express your perfect love.
