Choosing the Right Gemstone

Diamonds and sapphires are two of the hardest gemstones, making them hold up well to the everyday wear required of engagement rings. Maybe your girlfriend wants lots of diamonds, or a sapphire surrounded by diamonds. We’re here to help you explore gems that are unique!

The shape is equally as important as the type of gem. Round is a very common choice, but there are others to consider such as a square cut (sometimes referred to as princess cut), cushion cut, marquise cut, oval and more.

Figure out Her Ring Size

If you’ve discussed this at length, then the quickest way to find out her size is asking! But if this is going to be a surprise proposal, subtilty will be key. Perhaps try using another ring from her jewelry box or ask her friends.
