What are the 4C's?
When selecting the perfect diamond there are four different elements to consider; cut, colour, clarity and carat. These elements all add up to the end value and beauty of the diamond, so it’s important you understand what it is your looking for.
How much should I spend?
Spend whatever feels right to you, we suggest you don’t spend more than you can comfortably afford as you don’t want to start married life in debt! There are many engagement rings at different price points and remember if you can’t find one you like you can always get a bespoke ring made, just ensure you tell the jeweller your budget first.
Can I buy an engagement ring online?
Although there are plenty of great online retailers, we suggest you look in a shop first. You can’t always guarantee what your buying online, especially if you don’t buy from a specialist. If you do buy online make sure the seller is reputable and you follow the four C’s to ensure you get a high quality ring.
How do I know what ring size I should get?
We suggest asking a friend or relative if they know your partners ring size, if this is not an option, we suggest bringing in a current ring your partner wheres often and your jewellery should be able to measure the ring for you. Remember to do this discreetly as you don’t want to let the cat out the bag.
Particularly with the introduction of the Internet, many cheap / imitation products hit the market and subsequently, it can be harder to know whether you have a really quality piece of jewellery. A quality piece of jewellery can and should last a lifetime.
