How To Pick An Engagement Ring That Suits Your Style

Has your partner popped the question and you’re going to pick out a ring together? Perhaps you’re going ring shopping pre-proposal? Or have they asked you for some pointers about the style of ring you’d like? 

Whatever your situation, choosing an engagement ring is an extremely fun and joyful experience. While you’re likely to be full of excitement, it can also be daunting trying to choose the right ring with so many options available. Plus, with the average engagement ring costing between £1,865 and £2,100, according to Money, it’s an expensive decision that you want to get right.  

That’s why we’ve put together these tips to help you pick a style that’s perfect for you. 

Choose your favourite metal

First things first, think about the type of metal that would best suit your style. Do you wear yellow gold every day? Is rose gold your favourite? Or is your jewellery box full of silver items? It’s worth going for the metal that is most suited to your everyday look. 

When thinking about metal, you should also consider price and durability. Platinum is renowned for being extremely robust but is often more costly than white gold, which offers the same sort of look.

Pick your preferred stone

While diamond engagement rings are the most popular choice thanks to their timeless and classic style, there are plenty of other beautiful stones to explore if you don’t want to stick to tradition. 

For instance, sapphires are a popular choice, with the likes of Elizabeth Hurley, Kate Middleton and Gwyneth Paltrow all sporting sapphire engagement rings. Rubies, emeralds and amethyst are also beautiful options that are perfect if you prefer a pop of colour. 

Consider the cut 

From round brilliant styles to linear emerald cuts, striking oval designs to beautiful baguette shapes, there are a huge number of cuts to choose from. Have a browse and see which cut you’re most drawn towards.

If you’re wanting a modern design, princess cut engagement rings may be the perfect choice.  If you’re keen to wear something understated and simple, the beautiful round brilliant cut may be the one. Or, if you want something that stands out, a pear or marquise cut is sure to dazzle.

Decide on the right style

Another important factor when picking an engagement ring is the style. If you prefer minimalistic and simple jewellery, then a striking solitaire ring is a great option.

If you want something extra sparkly, a halo ring may be perfect. These rings feature lots of smaller stones around a large centre stone, creating the wow factor! Or, if vintage pieces are more your thing, then an oval halo or trilogy ring may be just what you’re looking for. 

Hopefully, this will help you to choose the perfect engagement ring that you’ll treasure for many years to come.
