Engagement Ring Decisions

Choosing the right style

Choosing the right style of engagement ring, can be an extremely difficult decision. There are so many factors to take into consideration. Sometimes you might have picked up on particular style references, or have a design in mind, but if you’re mind is a blank canvas, in need of some gentle guidance, then we thought we would make a suggestion for you.

The classic round brilliant cut diamond solitaire engagement ring has been a sure favourite and will remain this way. For this reason, the design we have selected has not been considered without great thought. Provided you choose a diamond with a very good cut grade (as we provide at our regular website standard) your diamond will provide the full brilliance I am sure you would expect. Our minimum J colour and SI2 clarity also keeps the diamond at a level where this same brilliance can be expected, and we advise going no lower than this.

R1D002 our four claw twist ring, is a Domino design, which remains an ideal choice, for various reasons. Firstly the diamond is not set too high, so from a practical side, it ensures that the diamond is not too exposed and vulnerable to being knocked. In addition to this, the setting is simple with no under-bezel, allowing the maximum amount of light into the diamond, and ensuring a very simple design that allows the focus to be on the diamond itself. Having said this, the design does offer that little bit of difference to set it apart from the regular four claw designs available.

Thirdly, following on from the engagement, we have a pre-designed wedding ring, (RWD023) that complements this style of ring, which means you do not have to go to the trouble of having a specially fitted band made to this design. Furthermore, the design is relatively tolerant to sizing, and with a substantial 2.5mm width behind the finger, will not thin too much when the finger size is increased.

For further advice, and some additional guidance, please feel free to contact us at any time by phone or email, and we would be happy to talk you through any other designs.

On a final note, look out for a new diamond set four claw twist design with diamond set shoulders – coming soon.
