There are at least three rings many couples will choose over their lifetimes: an engagement ring as they plan to marry and wedding & anniversary rings as they wed and later celebrate an important milestone in their marriage. Many young couples go to a jewelry store with a budget in mind and choose their rings accordingly.
Conventional wisdom suggests that the gentleman will purchase an engagement ring which equals one to two months of his salary, a measuring standard which is still in use today. Of course, you aren’t required to adhere to that standard, but it is a guideline which is useful for your consideration. Before looking at possible diamonds for the ring, you must select a setting.
From traditional Classic Solitaire, Setting with Sidestones, Pave setting, Three Stone setting to designer jewelry settings, your choice is only limited by your budget, tastes, and imagination. You can also customize and build your own ring.
The diamond you choose is priced according to four attributes: clarity, carat, cut, and color. Besides considering a diamond’s attributes, shape (e.g. round, pear, marquise, oval, heart, etc.), cleaning, quality (or grade), and light performance are other factors which will ultimately determine a diamond’s value. Once you have chosen the setting and diamond, your work is done.
