What To Consider When Buying An Engagement Ring...

Buying an engagement ring isn’t just about picking out the one that looks most appealing to you. While appearance and personal preference play a big role in deciding on an engagement ring, there are other factors to consider.

All of these factors play a role in making sure that the ring you buy is authentic, of great quality and that it will stand the test of time.

The Best Metals For An Engagement Ring...

Many people don’t realize that choosing the right metal for an engagement ring is almost as important as choosing the right diamond or gemstone. There are different grades of metal, different metals altogether, and a wide range of considerations to be aware of.

Platinum – Platinum is a metal that has a natural white color, with a cool luster that really does well to showcase the brilliance of a diamond. It is known as the most precious of the jewelry metals.

Platinum is five times more rare and purer than gold when used in jewelry. It is durable, which makes it a wonderful option for those who live an active lifestyle. It creates a secure setting for diamonds and is naturally hypoallergenic, which means it works well with sensitive skin.

The sheen of platinum will not fade over time, and its strength will keep your ring safe throughout a lifetime.

Gold – Gold is the most popular choice of metal for jewelry. It is incredibly versatile as a metal for jewelry and is measured in karats. Pure gold is 24 karats, so 24 parts in 24 are gold. In its pure form, gold is too soft to be used for jewelry, so it needs to be combined with other metals such as silver, copper, zinc or nickel to give it extra strength and durability. When it comes to engagement rings, you will commonly find 18K or 14K gold bands.

Gold jewelry comes in different colors, with the option to choose from yellow gold, white gold and rose gold.

Yellow gold gives the engagement ring a warm feel. While it fell out of fashion a while ago, it is picking up in popularity again.

White gold is contemporary and considered more modern than yellow gold. White gold is plated with rhodium, which is resistant to scratches and tarnishing. However, this may wear off over time and you will need to re-plate your ring.

Rose gold is an incredibly romantic color, it is warm with a pink hue that creates a more vintage look to an engagement ring.

Choosing Between Diamonds and Gemstones...

While diamond engagement rings will always be considered the more traditional of engagement rings, using gemstones as centerpieces in engagement rings is quickly picking up in popularity.

Having to decide between using a diamond or gemstone placing in your engagement ring should take some thought, both have advantages and disadvantages that are worthwhile to consider.

Diamonds

Diamonds are classic. They are rare, beautiful, and have incredible sparkle. Diamonds add a magnificent brilliance to a ring. Diamonds are very strong and durable, they endure a lifetime and longer, making them a great choice for a ring that will be worn forever. Due to their colorless appearance, they are very versatile and can be worn with any skin tone and any style.

However, diamonds are largely more expensive than other gemstones. The larger the diamond, and the better the quality, the more expensive the diamond will be. More modern brides also feel that diamonds are too traditional or conventional, and would prefer to wear something a little more uncommon and true to their personal style.

Gemstones

Gemstones are available in a wide range of incredible colors, and each stone has individual character. Gemstones help a ring stand out from the crowd. Gemstones tend to be less conventional than diamonds, but are growing in popularity when being used in engagement rings. Some gemstones are brittle and soft, but some such as sapphires and rubies are incredibly durable, making them perfect for engagement rings worn every day.

Certain gemstones such as opals, pearls, garnets, turquoise, and amber are not ideal for engagement rings, they are soft and might damage in water. Emeralds, tanzanite, quartz, amethyst, tourmaline, and aquamarines are not perfect either, but if looked after properly, should serve well in an engagement ring. It is best to stick to rubies, sapphires, and topaz if you want a durable stone for your ring.

How to Care For Your Engagement Ring...

Properly caring for your engagement ring is the best way to ensure its durability and longevity. Engagement rings, in all shapes and forms, need some extra care periodically to be kept sparkling and beautiful.

Cleaning- You should have your engagement ring cleaned four times a year. You can also choose to do this at home by yourself. Dirt, residue, and oil can lodge inside your setting and diamond, and this could cause the ring to appear dull. Even the smallest bit of dirt can affect how the light reflects off the diamond.

Checks – Wearing your engagement often or every day can cause the prongs to become loose or even bend. To ensure that no stones fall out, you should take your ring to be checked by your jeweler twice a year. Most jewelers provide this service for free, sometimes even if you did not purchase the ring from them.

Refreshing the metal – Depending on the type of metal your ring is made from, you should follow certain care instructions to keep the metal shiny and durable. Platinum and yellow gold rings need to be polished every few years to ensure they keep their shine and smooth appearance. White gold will need to be dipped every few years, to replace the rhodium plating found on the ring, which enables the metal to keep its luster and color.

Hands-on – Try and not wear your ring if you are performing any hands-on activities, such as gardening or exercising. This reduces any damage being done to your ring, and your ring becoming lost if you go swimming.

A Lifetime Promise

Choosing an engagement ring should be a happy part of your journey. Take out the stress of it all by looking at this top ten list of the best engagement rings, and hopefully, you will find the right ring to match your happy ever after.
