How To Choose Your Engagement Ring

Choosing an engagement ring can be a daunting task, but it doesn't have to be. If it’s something you are nervous about, just remember you’ll never go wrong with a thoughtful, beautiful ring. Nevertheless, here are some tips to help you make an informed decision about your engagement ring. 


A good place to start is to determine a budget for your ring. The general rule of thumb is to spend two to three months’ salary, but ultimately, the budget should reflect what you are comfortable spending. An engagement ring doesn’t have to be expensive to be beautiful, and you can find a wide variety of options for any price range. 

One way to get the diamond look without overspending is opting for a luscious Luminesce lab grown diamond engagement ring. These gorgeous stones are real diamonds, and are generally more affordable for their level of quality.


Think about your partner's style and what type of jewellery they wear. A classic solitaire ring, a halo setting, or a three-stone ring are popular choices. Consider the metal type and stone shape that would suit your partner's taste.

If you notice your partner loves gold jewellery, then a gold engagement ring is a perfect choice. Alternatively, if silver is their thing, a silver or white gold engagement ring is the way to go. Both rose gold and platinum are popular modern choices, too, with stunning lustre and colour. 


Remember, the engagement ring is not just a piece of jewellery, it's a symbol of love and commitment. Choose a ring that holds sentimental value and will be treasured for years to come, so make sure your choice of engagement ring comes from the heart.

A great way to pick a special ring is to use a gemstone or stone cut that you know your partner loves. You might ask them their favourite, or just make note of their current jewellery style. Maybe you can even find a ring that represents a special memory or moment in your relationship; little details count. 

Diamond Quality

When choosing a diamond, consider the "Four Cs": Carat weight, Cut, Clarity, and Colour. Carat weight refers to the size of the diamond, Cut refers to the angles and proportions that create the diamond's sparkle, Clarity refers to the presence of inclusions or blemishes, and Colour refers to the absence of yellow or brown tints. Decide on what's most important to you and your partner within these four factors.
