How to Find the Perfect Engagement Ring


The perfect engagement ring for her will be a beautiful reflection of her personal style. Our tips will help you find the diamond ring that she’ll love for a lifetime.

Think through her style
If you plan to surprise her with a ring, you’ll want to think through her lifestyle, her personality, and the jewelry she wears. To discover engagement rings she likes, start with social media. Her wedding and engagement board on Pinterest probably includes a few ring styles she loves, and viewing the jewelry brands and designers she follows on Instagram or Facebook can give you a sense of her dream ring. Her family or close friends can also give you valuable input about her jewelry style.

Shop in person
There’s nothing like experiencing the sparkle and quality of a diamond in person, so plan on setting up a time to visit a brick-and-mortar store. To discover the beauty of a diamond, it must be compared and contrasted to other stones to help you see subtle differences that impact value. Your local diamond expert has looked at thousands of diamonds and can distinguish a great stone from an average stone.

Shop together
Many couples decide to shop for the engagement ring together. If she has very specific tastes in jewelry, or you want to pick out the center stone and bring her in to help choose the setting and be part of the mounting process, shopping together can be a special part of the experience.

Choose a ring style
Round diamonds are the most popular shape for engagement rings, a classic choice that surpasses any setting or style of ring. With individually set diamonds chosen by hand for an exceptional level of radiance and sparkle, A.JAFFE engagement rings feature beautiful single stone settings in 14K and 18K gold or platinum.

Hearts on Fire specializes in two diamond cuts: a beautiful, round brilliant shape and a perfectly proportioned modified square shaped diamond. With both modern and traditional designs, Hearts on Fire engagement rings are designed with complementary wedding bands that fit together side-by-side for perfect symmetry.

Zeghani engagement collections include settings in 14K white, yellow, or rose gold. Center stone diamond options range from round cut to princess cut to emerald cut and beyond, making it easy to match the stone and material to her taste.

Another option is a completely custom design that brings her vision to life. Bring in a photo of her dream ring or a cherished heirloom that you’d like to recreate for a one-of-a-kind ring that reflects her unique style. From start to finish, allow about six to eight weeks before the finished engagement ring is placed in your hand.
