How to select the perfect engagement ring

Selecting the perfect ring for your loved one (or for yourself) is a beautiful yet important process as it represents the connection and love that is shared between partners. Whether you are anxious about embarking on this magical process or require further guidance, view our guideline below:

 

The Stone 

Are you wanting to go down the more traditional route by selecting a gorgeous diamond stone? Or perhaps you are wanting something less conventional (and in most cases, less expensive) such as a vibrant colored gemstone? Before you make the decision it is important to determine some key fundamental facts about you (or your partner if you are surprising them with the ring). Are you/they a traditionalist or are they experimental and like expressing their personality through the way they present themselves? Another thing to consider is whether the receiver of the engagement ring has a sentimental connection to a particular gemstone (such as their birth gemstone)? If you are unsure which stone to go with, why not do both! Speak to your jeweller who can take you through your options. 

 

The Cut 

When referring to the cut of a diamond, there are more factors to consider than just the shape of the diamond. In fact, the cut of a diamond refers to the amount of light that enters the diamond (only a perfected cut will result in a beautiful diamond that glimmers and shines). 

 

However, the shape is another key decision that needs to be addressed. With the vast array of options available, there truly is an option to suit everyone. We would suggest making a consultation with a Singapore Jewellery Designer prior to designing your dream diamond engagement ring or gemstone engagement ring

 

Different types of shapes include: round, princess, emerald, asscher, marquise, oval, cushion, pear, heart and radiant. 

 

The Color

Speaking technical terms here, if we are referring to diamonds here, the normal color range is based upon alphabetical letters. Beginning with D color (which is the most transparent), the range continues to Z color which is a light yellow. The higher the color, the more rare the diamond is. 

Now to go back to a simpler lingo, an area which needs to be considered is the colour of the diamond of the gemstone. Both diamonds and gemstones are available in a plethora of colours, the hardest part is deciding which one best suits the receiver of the engagement ring. 

 

The Clarity 

Diamonds (made in rose gold, white gold & yellow gold) are measured by the metric ‘carats’ (ct). Compared to cut, color and clarity, it is the least important variable when analyzing a diamond’s beauty. The higher the carat weight, the more rare the diamond is.
