It’s time – you and your partner have reached a point where you’ll soon take that next step. You may be thinking about the future or your partner may have proposed already. Either way, this is an exciting time. And now, you need to find the perfect ring.
When it comes to engagement rings, the options are endless. This makes finding the right one a challenge. So, how do you know which ring is best for you?
Here is our guide to finding the right ring.
The first thing you’ll want to do is pick the right stone. The stone you choose can help determine the rest of the ring elements. You can go for the classic diamond engagement rings or opt for a unique, bold look with gemstone designs.
There are plenty of diamond and gemstone options on the market! To choose, think of the colour you had in mind. Do you desire the timeless white diamond? Or do you admire the regal royal blue sapphire? Maybe you prefer the unconventional ruby? Consider which stone you’d like to go for before you make any further decisions.

After choosing the stone, the next thing to pick is the cut. One of the 4Cs, the cut is significant to your main stone. There are also multiple options to choose from. Aside from the aesthetic appeal, we encourage you to analyse which cut would flatter your hand most.
Looking for a cut that lengthens the hand? Try for an emerald or oval cut. Prefer a more iconic sparkle? Go for a round or princess cut. Looking for a more distinct cut? Explore a marquise or pear shape design. Several cuts are available, with many suiting a range of stones more than others. Therefore, it is essential to review your options.

Next up, the setting. A crucial feature, the setting is an important element of the ring’s aesthetic and functionality. There is a broad list of options available when it comes to the ring setting. Not to mention, a ring can feature multiple settings in one design, as settings can be used in the crown, band and basket of a ring.
Try a solitaire engagement ring for a recognised setting that is a classic. Want something a little more glamorous? Go for a pavé setting on the band with a cathedral setting for raised height on the main stone. No matter your taste, there will be a setting to suit your style. We encourage you to explore the many different settings available and then narrow down which options you want the most. You should also consider your desired ring height, lifestyle and overall fashion style.

Last but not least, the metal choice. The metal used in your engagement ring can significantly impact the final look. Some metal choices can also go better with certain stones than others. They can also be more flattering for certain skin tones. This is important to consider when making your metal selections.
To find the right metal, review your existing jewellery collection. You should go for a metal choice you commonly wear. Not sure which you prefer? For a popular timeless choice, white gold engagement rings are a safe choice. If you want something more unique, opt for a duotone using two different metal choices.
