Whatever way you decide to propose, if you are planning on proposing with a ring then make sure you put thought and effort into it.

When thinking about the right ring to choose, if you have considered the following then you could be on to a winner. What to think about in regards to the diamond; the cut – we’ve already mentioned princess cut diamond engagement rings (the second most popular choice generally, after the round / brilliant cut), the theme for this particular piece. The carat, the weight of the diamond this is dependent on budget more than anything else. Clarity, almost all diamonds have imperfections, the ones with little or no imperfections are the ones with the higher clarity grades. Colour, this is not necessarily a colour you should expect to see, in fact it refers to the lack of colour, if a diamond is white it will receive a high quality grade.

Other considerations are the setting for the stone, i.e the metal that will hold the diamonds. Currently, it is fair to say that white metals are in fashion, so if your fiancé happens to be a fashionista, then white gold engagement rings or platinum are a good choice.

However, if your partner prefers understated to elaborate then a solitaire ring could be the perfect choice. This is a big factor in the ring buying process, what does she wear jewellery wise on a daily basis? Have a look in her jewellery box to draw inspiration in regards to the type of thing she like and chooses for herself.
