In 1835, Alfred, Lord Tennyson wrote his “Locksley Hall” poem and the much quoted line “In the Spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.” Spring is still the traditional time when most people become engaged.
Along with the romance and excitement of “popping the question” comes the responsibility of choosing the right engagement ring. Here are some tips!
Once you’ve decided on your budget, think about your partner’s style – is it traditional, classic, contemporary or avant garde?
Think about the band. White gold and platinum are very popular engagement ring metals. White gold is usually plated with rhodium for a bright silvery appearance, and platinum is hard, strong and naturally silvery colour that dulls over time. Or does your partner like natural yellow-orange gold, or a lighter yellow colour?
Choose your partner’s correct ring band size by (secretly!) borrowing, drawing or measuring another of your partner’s rings. Rings can be resized, but it’s easier and cheaper to resize a ring that’s too large, rather than too small.
Most engagement ring gemstones are diamonds – and it’s a brave partner who chooses anything else! Diamonds are very durable and work well with other jewellery.
