An engagement ring is given in token of eternal love and togetherness following a marriage proposal, and it marks a joyful milestone in the life of you and your partner. However, choosing the right type of ring that optimally fits the occasion as well as the finger is crucial for your special day.
At DiamondsByMe, no two rings are alike. We provide a fully tailored jewellery creation service to give you premium-quality, stylish, and timeless engagement rings that are perfectly suited to the character and style of your partner and thereby add that personal touch to the ceremony. Therefore, we highly recommend that you spend ample time considering your exact specifications to find the ideal engagement ring that will create an enduring memory of your wedding day and last a lifetime thereafter.
When it comes to choosing the gemstone, diamond and emerald are two excellent options. Whilst diamond is the classier of the two, green emerald traditionally stands for love, unity, and partnership, and it also has historical significance.
For example, the emerald was once thought to have healing powers and famously worn by Cleopatra, queen of ancient Egypt. However, regardless of their standalone beauty, emeralds look their best when mounted on an exquisite, handcrafted engagement ring, especially on a white gold or platinum band.
When choosing an emerald and diamond ring for your engagement, there are several important factors to consider before purchasing, other than the gemstone type.
First and foremost, you should bear in mind the ring’s exact purpose. As well as being a symbol of engagement and marriage, it should be designed and styled in a way that reflects and enhances the wearer’s personal character, whether this is traditional, colourful or glamorous. With diamonds for example, the size and cut of the gemstone could be round, oval, princess, pear-shaped or heart-shaped. These shapes differ in the way they capture and direct the light, with the round cut capturing light in the most optimal way and the pear-shaped gem having the most elegant appearance, whilst the heart-shaped diamond is ideal for romantics!
The ring band can also be made from various precious metals: yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, silver, or platinum.
