Choosing a Diamond Engagement Ring

By: Ariel

The best way to get her the perfect diamond engagement ring is to let her pick it out. She knows exactly what she wants and she might even be willing to cut the budget a little when she actually sees the price tags. It's not like she is picking out a computer and can choose the components from a catalogue, she has to try on the ring and several rings before she can decide which one is the right one. There are many types of metals, ring designs and diamond cuts to choose from. But, if you still want to choose a ring alone here are some of the most popular choices.

Diamond Engagement Ring Classic Solitaire Settings -

Classic solitaire settings always make beautiful diamond engagement rings. There are several variations to choose from, including the Six-Prong and Four-Prong Solitaire Setting, The Bezel Setting, Cathedral Solitaire Setting, Cathedral Basket Setting, Knife Edge Setting, and Trellis Settings, to name a few.

Diamond Engagement Ring Three Stone Settings -

A popular choice among diamond engagement rings are the three stone settings. These rings are set with diamonds of various shapes and sizes to create uniquely special diamond engagement rings. Setting options can include prong settings or bezel settings in 18k white and yellow gold or platinum.

Diamond Engagement Ring - Choosing the Right Metal

While the diamond is always the centerpiece of a ring the metal can be just as important. Make sure to ask your self, what type of metal jewelry and rings does she wear now? Most women have a clear-cut preference. If she loves yellow gold, don't even look at a diamond or other stone mounted in a platinum or white gold setting. Platinum is more expensive but it also a more durable metal and won't show scratches as quickly as white gold.
