Some General Tips: Metal and Stone

When choosing your engagement ring, there are two things to look out for: the metal and the stone. Choose a metal that will match with your normal everyday jewelry. Your engagement ring will be a connection to your partner and you’ll want to be reminded every day of the moment they proposed to you. If you love to mix metals then maybe look at rose gold rings that can complement silver and gold tones. If you’d prefer silver, look at palladium over white gold because it is a harder metal and will need less upkeep than a gold based metal.

When looking for a diamond, remember the 4 C’s (color, cut, clarity, and carat)! The most important of the two is cut and color. Cut can make a huge difference in how a diamond looks because it affects the sparkle. A smaller, better cut diamond will look better than a larger diamond. The color describes how yellow a diamond is. A white diamond will look brilliant and shine brighter than one with a slightly yellow hue. If you’re not sure what you’re looking for, then check out an online jeweler, like Blue Nile. They carry a collection of engagement rings in many different styles.
