Engagement Ring FAQs
When it comes to buying the engagement ring, there are plenty of questions you need answers to and frankly, it can be overwhelming. Here are a few of the most commonly asked questions we get from customers:
- How do I decide on an engagement ring style? Once you’ve decided on a budget, it’s time to go ring shopping but where to start? We recommend starting with an engagement ring style. There are countless setting, metal, and stone combinations you can come up with, but we can help you narrow it down to what you really want. We’ll consider your significant other’s style to figure out whether they’re into something more flashy or something more understated. We can also walk you through the benefits of different metals and settings that would suit your significant other’s style.
- Diamonds vs. gemstones, which one is best? We hear this question a lot, especially with the rise in popularity of gemstone engagement rings. Some brides truly prefer the classic look of a diamond while others want a more unique look with a gemstone. We can talk through the benefits of each stone and what your significant other likes or tends to wear to help you decide on a stone. We can also do a combination of a diamond with accenting gemstones or vice versa so you can have the best of both worlds.
- Should I go designer or custom? Designer jewelry is a great option if you have a general idea in mind of what you want. The rings are often pre-made or you can select a setting and stone size from what’s available. But, if you’re looking for something more unique and with more personality, a custom engagement ring may be right. When you choose to go custom, one of our expert jewelers will help you design the perfect ring for your significant other.
