Step 1

Choose the perfect diamond for her:

This step is the most
crucial step in the process in selecting her the perfect engagement ring. Is
size for her more important or quality or both? The price of the diamond varies
with size of the diamond (carats) and it’s characteristics - cut, clarity and
colour. Once you have a comprehensive and in-depth understanding of what would
please your partner our Diamond Specialists can guide you to the perfect
diamond suited for your needs.

step 2

Selecting a design for the ring. This can be a difficult process as you may not have her with you to tell you what she wants.
Some couples do decide to do this step together, but some opt for the element
of surprise in this process. We always recommend you bringing in any photos and
pictures of all that you may have seen together in shops or on the internet and
social media platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest. The design of the ring
may be a simple one which is already in the store which can be purchased

step 3

Designing the ring and
opting for a hand-crafted custom-made ring. This would mean if the design
chosen is not sold in the store as a stock item then getting the unique design
either drawn up or on the computer and approved so it’s completely tailored to
you.

DECIDE HOW MUCH YOU WANT TO SPEND

You will be confronted with a dizzying array
of choices when it comes to engagement rings. Have a price range in mind before
you start to shop. Going in with specific parameters will help your jeweller
find the right engagement ring to fit your budget.

DO YOUR HOMEWORK

There’s a lot you can learn about diamonds
before you even set foot in a jewellery store. Start with the 4Cs – Colour,
Clarity, Cut and Carat Weight – so you understand how each influences the value
of the diamond and adds to the overall appearance of the stone. You’ll learn
what is most important to you and where you might want to compromise to fit
your price range.

UNDERSTAND HER TASTE IN JEWELRY

Pay attention to the kind of jewellery she
already wears. Is she more classic or modern? Does she wear more white metals
or yellow gold? Do her pieces tend to be more delicate or chunky? Sleek or
ornate? Have these preferences in mind when you set out to shop. If you buy
something similar to what she already likes, you can't go wrong.

KNOW HER RING SIZE

If she wears rings, borrow
one she already owns. Trace the inner circle on a piece of paper or press the
ring into a bar of soap for an impression. You can also slide it down one of
your own fingers and draw a line where it stops. A jeweller can use these
measurements to identify her approximate ring size.
If she doesn't wear rings, estimate in the following manner: The average ring
size in the U.S. is 6 (based on the 'average' U.S. female being 5'4" tall
and weighing 140 lbs.) If she's slenderer, or fine-boned, her ring size is
probably in the 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 range. If she is heavier, larger-boned or
taller, her ring size is probably in the 6 1/2 to 7 1/2 range. It's always
better to buy a ring a bit bigger than you think she'll need, because sizing a
ring down is much easier than increasing its size

DECIDE ON A METAL

A diamond engagement ring is meant to last a
lifetime so it is often made of gold or platinum - highly durable metals that
can withstand many decades of daily wear. Metal color is a matter of personal
preference with gold providing more color options: white, yellow or rose. Metal
color is also a consideration since the appearance of a diamond’s color is
affected by its surroundings. Once you’ve selected your diamond, ask your
jeweler to show you how it would look with different colored metals.
