Diamond Engagement Ring Collection

The First Step to Forever

An engagement ring is symbolic. Diamond engagement rings convey the love between two people, a love so great that they’ve decided to commit to each other for the rest of their lives. The engagement is a special part of the wedding process that should not be taken lightly. Choosing the right engagement ring is a big decision, and we’re here to help you pick the best diamond engagement ring to represent the start of this precious new journey to forever with your partner.

In this engagement ring guide, we’ll cover the important information to know when picking a round brilliant ring for your engagement.

What should I know before buying an engagement ring?

To get the best engagement ring for your partner, you’ll need to know his or her engagement ring style. This will help you pick the right cut and size for the ring. You can discuss with your partner their favorite diamond engagement ring styles or you can look at the jewellery they wear as a guide. It’s also important to know the size of his or her fingers so the ring fits just right.

When you’ve got an idea of what engagement ring set you want to buy, consult a jewellery expert to get it made at a price that fits within your means (you can always upgrade the ring later!). Order your ring in advance because your jeweller will need time to set it; especially as some rings are made after you order them. 

There are a variety of diamond engagement rings you can choose from. You could get a solitaire engagement ring, diamond band engagement ring, diamond halo engagement ring, vintage diamond ring, and more diamond rings. 

Whether you choose from our yellow gold engagement rings or opt for white gold, your partner is sure to love the ring you have thoughtfully chosen for them. You can also choose the colour of your engagement ring diamonds, such as yellow, champagne, or the converted pink diamond. Some people wonder which diamond colour is best and that all depends on your personal ring style and preferences.

How do I find my partner’s ring size?

Finding out your partner’s ring size without them knowing isn’t impossible. The best way to figure out their ring size is to get your hands on a ring they already own. Some rings will have the size stamped on the band, and you can simply use that information. Otherwise, you can take a photo of the ring next to a ruler, measure it yourself, or bring it to your jeweller who can recommend the right size for an engagement ring

How do I choose the right diamond cut for an engagement ring?

The right diamond cut for an engagement ring is really whatever you like as a couple. But if you’d like some insight on diamond ring cuts, the most popular—and often priciest—choice is the round brilliant cut. This diamond cut is the sparkliest and the most brilliant, and the cut suits all hand shapes and sizes. The princess cut comes at a close second, followed by emerald, cushion, and oval cuts. There is also a brilliant cut diamond and other cut engagement rings available.

What’s the difference between an engagement ring and a wedding ring?

An engagement ring typically only has one stand-alone dominant diamond, a diamond solitaire engagement ring (though it can also be surrounded by smaller diamonds in a halo), and it is the ring given at the time of a wedding proposal early on in the engagement. A wedding ring, on the other hand, is a plain metal band or diamond eternity band that’s exchanged during a wedding ceremony and worn by the couple from then on. Each partner traditionally wears a wedding ring.

Ask about an engagement ring set. It’s important that you consider how your wedding band will fit with your engagement ring.

What metals are used in engagement rings?

The band of engagement rings can be made from a variety of metals including gold (yellow, white, rose, and green), platinum, silver, palladium, and tungsten. The wide variety of ring band choices gives you flexibility in style and budget.

What are the 4Cs for Diamonds?

The 4Cs of a diamond refer to the carat, colour, clarity, and cut. These are the four qualities that you must pay attention to before buying a diamond to determine its quality. Carat refers to its weight, colour concerns its hue, clarity involves its lack of blemishes, and cut evaluates the jeweller’s skill in fashioning the rock. When picking the diamonds for your ring, you will want to consider each of these features. 

To find diamond engagement rings, you can shop in a variety of places. However, given the significance of engagement rings, you should ensure you are engaging with a reputable dealer when choosing your ring. You can browse our ring collection online and make an appointment to shop in store and visit our showroom. By appointment, our expert jewellers can guide you through creating a design for your ring or shop from our existing collection of diamond rings. Our personalized service will help make purchasing an engagement ring a special experience.
