The Engagement Ring

Once over, it was said that the engagement ring should cost approximately one month’s salary, however with so many discount outlets available nowadays, you may not find you need to spend anywhere near that.

Once you have set your budget, the next step is to think about what style of engagement ring you would like.

  • Do you wear a certain colour jewellery already?
  • Do you want your engagement ring to fit around another ring?
  • What precious stones do you like?
  • Do you want a prominent ring or something more understated?

What colour metal for your engagement ring?

So, if you already wear yellow gold jewellery that you intend to keep wearing, you may want to select an engagement ring that is also made of yellow gold.

If this is your first piece of jewellery, maybe you would like your engagement ring to set the precedent; in which case, you can opt for platinum, white gold, yellow gold or rose gold.

Another consideration is what stone you will go for, as some colours will each suit different tone of gold.

Of course, a classic diamond looks good with anything; they aren’t called “A girl’s best friend” for no reason!

Happy engagement ring shopping!
