Set the characteristics of the engagement ring

As the engagement ring is the sign of your reciprocal commitments, favor the precious metal such as gold for example. Options are available to you. Opt for a yellow gold solitaire or a white gold model. Classic and timeless gold rings are often perceived as antique jewelry. However, for modern women like me, nothing beats white gold. What's more, white gold jewelry is very fashionable right now.

What precious stone will be enthroned on the ring? Regarded as the emblem of love, it is of course the diamond that tops the list. This gem is since the night of time inseparable engagement. So, to make sure that the gemstone is of superior quality, only buy diamonds of at least 0.50 carat. And the bigger the gem, the more valuable the jewel. Nevertheless, there are nowadays also engagement rings decorated with rubies, emeralds or sapphires.

Once the material and the stone of the ring are defined, the last step is the choice of its shape. Here too tradition has it that the jewel is a loner. I adhere to it completely. The most popular model is the ring with its diamond in the center, large if possible. My fiancé opted for the solitaire shouldered. Finally, I also find the solitary trilogy, with three diamonds of the same size.
