Firstly you need to find a jeweller either online or local to you that specialises in bespoke jewellery design. If you are on a tight budget and looking to get value for your money buying an engagement ring over the internet will give you more for your money. With online jewellers being so competitive you can now get a quality ring and diamond for more than half the price of popular high street jewellers.
2. Find an Engagement Ring Style She will Love
Does your girlfriend prefer classic, traditional jewellery, or quirky contemporary styles of jewellery? If she wears classic jewellery, go for a classic solitaire diamond engagement ring. If you has flamboyant, quirky jewellery opt for more diamonds on the engagement ring, or even add different gem stones like Sapphires or Rubies. You could even ask her friends and family for advice on the style of engagement ring she would want.
3. Choose a Metal for your Engagement Ring
Most engagement rings are made in either gold or platinum. Platinum is a heavier metal and slightly more durable then gold. Platinum also has a higher purity then gold when used in jewellery pieces. Whereas the purity of gold is measured in carats - 9 ct, 14 ct and 18 ct. The most common precious metal types for use in engagement rings are 18 carat gold which is 75% pure. Read this metal comparison for more information.
4. Select a Diamond to Fit Your Engagement Ring Setting
When selecting a diamond for your engagement ring your need to research the four most important characteristics of a diamond – cut, colour, clarity and carat weight know as the four C’s. You also need to pick a diamond shape for your engagement ring. The most common diamond shapes are round, princess, emerald, marquise, pear, oval, radiant, heart and Asscher.
