Choosing the perfect engagement ring is so much more than the size of the diamond. Often the diamond’s carat size, cut and clairty is usually the first part of the engagement ring discussion. While this a big piece of the ring, the diamond isn’t the main priority to the design.
An Engagement ring is the first piece to a bridal setting worn daily. The ring symbolizes the love you two share, and that also means the strength of your bond. Knowing your partner is key to creating the design of the ring. It is essential to take into account their daily lives and the wear and tear that will bring.
What They Don’t Tell You
Many Engagement rings come with small intricate details we don’t recognize at first glance, like a double row of diamonds around the band. We often overlook the maintenance of these engagement rings because we are instantaneously mesmerized by the extravagant sparkle of the ring. Upon a closer look, you see the attention to detail and actual setting of the ring. While these are sparkling beauties and an option for some, they may not be the ideal setting for an active lifestyle. Knowing this before purchasing the ring may help you prevent future costly and devastating damages. If you choose this style, know it will require much more safekeeping by taking it off for certain occasions or activities, which is a good practice for all jewelry.
Low Maintenance Can Still be Pretty
Creating your engagement ring is to be low maintenance doesn’t mean it won‘t shine just as bright as the others. In fact, many favor one diamond versus several. Paying attention to the ring’s prongs and is it capable of holding the stone you desire safe? Is the band durable enough to withstand daily wear and tear of your profession? Are you good about taking off your jewelry ahead of taking part in an activity like the gym? These are all great question to include in your design on the perfect engagement ring. If you answered No, it might be wise to shoot for beauty and durability. A traditional engagement ring like a Cushion Solitaire Engagement ring is better suitable for an active lifestyle. While this is a piece we would consider being low maintenance, it is still gorgeous eye-candy. You could also engrave the band to add sparkle and more creativity.
