Christmas is one of the most magical times of the year for many people. It is a time when we all take the time to appreciate our family and spend time with them. Looking for gifts that remind us of them and that we hope will make them smile. Some of us are even looking to ask that extra special someone to join their family. With this in mind, we are suggesting some engagement rings that we believe are truly magical this year.
Buying an engagement ring can be a time-consuming task when you are looking for just the right ring. we recommend that you remember this and try not to put yourself under any time limits or constraints. If you feel you want to look at the multiple rings and styles, this is something you should do. This ring is being chosen to last and therefore it’s worth giving some proper consideration, a token or proposal could be worth considering.
Ring size may seem like one of the most important factors when choosing a ring, however, most rings can be sized or ordered to fit. It is recommended to wait until after the proposal or when you have your partner with you before sizing the ring.
When looking at buying an engagement ring, we advise that you look not only at the top of the ring but also underneath at the setting, even ask your jeweller to borrow their loupe. We recommend having a look at the finish of the ring instead of just looking at the stone, the ring as a whole is a valuable item that will have sentimental value to you and your partner for years to come which is why quality is of the utmost importance.
Gold has seen a rise in demand over the last few years, where the majority of customers were once mainly looking for a white metal, yellow gold is now holding its own against the white metals. Yellow gold looks lovely against Irish skin which may be another factor affecting this.
This three stone ring in 18k yellow gold is set in platinum which ensures that there is the perfect colour being reflected by the ring. A classic style of ring that is loved by many. Someone who is into yellow gold is more likely also into the classic ring styles.
This is a classic and elegant six claw engagement ring with a centre stone that weighs .54 carats. The solitaire would be the most simple yet loved of all the engagement rings. It can also be brightened up further with the addition of shoulder stones. Currently, we are seeing more and more customers choosing bare-shouldered rings such as this one.
This trilogy ring is similar to the first three stone, however the addition of a radiant cut diamond in the place of the round brilliant gives this ring a completely different feel. Created with 18k yellow gold with diamonds which are set in platinum these rings are of the highest quality. The radiant cut is a more modern cut which is in between an emerald and round brilliant.
Three stone rings are always a great choice which never really loses their appeal which is why we chose two in our yellow gold ring section. with the trilogy of stones representing the past, present and future this ring style can have some real sentimental value.
Platinum is the most precious of metals, when asking someone to spend the rest of their life with you why go for anything less than the best? We recommend Platinum as the white metal in engagement rings because it is a harder metal and is naturally white and therefore does not lose its colour over time. Here are some of our top platinum picks.
Solitaires always will remain as one of the top engagement ring styles. They are classic to the core and are what every little girl generally imagines when they think of an engagement ring. This platinum ring has a twist on the band with diamonds adorning half of the plait. If you want to add that extra little detail we suggest checking out different band styles such as this one to make sure your ring really stands out.
The diamond shape on the solitaire will differentiate your ring from the crowd. The current shapes that we are seeing customers want more of are the Marquise and the Pear cut. These beautiful shapes would still be considered to be a more irregular shape, however they are chosen by women who like to set themselves apart from the crowd.
The pear cut diamond is a unique and beautiful shape on an engagement ring. Traditionally this shape should be worn with the point worn away from your body. This shape is very flattering when worn which is why more and more women are being drawn to it.
Every diamond is unique and therefore every diamond ring is unique. These rings are just a selection of unique engagement ring styles.
An Asscher cut diamond is a unique shape that would not be an everyday style that would be requested. This ring is Platinum and has a vintage feel to it despite not being vintage. If the person you love is into vintage styles why not ask to see a vintage-inspired ring such as this one?
A cluster ring such as this one is another example of a vintage-inspired ring. The experimentation of the emerald and round brilliant cut diamonds in this cluster have created a unique ring.
This ring is a classic style, rose gold is a less common choice of band colour which makes this ring really stand out for us. A romantic pink take on the classic gold, this ring’s diamonds are set in platinum which ensures you see the brightness of the diamonds.
Before looking at an engagement ring there is also the option of proposing with a promise, proposal or token ring if you are still unsure on a style. A promise ring allows for your significant other to be surprised but also to be involved in the buying of the ring. If you are unsure of which style of ring your partner would like this could be a safe option while maintaining the surprise. Have a look at our promise/proposal/token rings with the button below.
