Before you trade your hard-earned cash or swipe your credit card, there are five things you should look for when buying an engagement ring.

The wedding season is fast approaching and if you’re planning to pop the question this month or anytime soon, you need all the help you can get!

Along with a romantic speech and a lot of guts, choosing the perfect engagement ring is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. But it doesn’t have to be a hard one.

However, there are countless choices that’s why it seems like a daunting task. Learning more about what makes a great engagement ring can save you time and energy on your search for the best engagement ring Sydney has to offer.

We firmly believe that the perfect ring for her should possess these qualities:

Are you looking for something memorable and attractive? That’s good because we believe that the perfect ring is not always a ready-to-wear type, but something that’s unique.

When future grooms come to us, a huge number of them seek our opinion on custom-made engagement rings. Cut, colour, finish, and materials are the important characteristics that you should consider as you sketch your design on paper.

While you can design based on the latest engagement trends, wedding magazines, or popular celebrity engagement rings, it always feels special to incorporate your love story in the ring itself.

Maybe you have a special symbol behind your story – a tree, a heart, a star, a date, or even words that are important in your relationship. You can use this symbol in different ways – from the cut to engraving.

Your jeweller will be more than happy to personalise the ring for you, and the best thing is – you can be as creative as you want.

  1. Fits your budget

Believe it or not, there is a beautiful engagement ring for every budget. We are firm believers that the real value of an engagement ring comes from the meaning behind it.

But, money does play an important role when choosing the ring. Setting a budget early on will help you narrow down your choices. It will allow you to explore all the available options for you in terms of centre gem properties and ring designs.

  1. Adorned with a beautiful pebble she will love

The most classic engagement ring centrepiece is a diamond. In fact, 90% of engagement rings feature a diamond. Sapphire comes second and it also makes a beautiful gemstone choice.

However, the million dollar question is, if your girlfriend’s style choice is more conventional, a diamond will suit her well. However, if your partner is more on the eccentric or a nonconformist style, a sapphire or a coloured gemstone is a great option.

According to My Wedding, here are the 10 most popular gemstones for engagement rings

  • Diamond
  • Sapphire
  • Aquamarine
  • Pearl
  • Emerald
  • Peridot
  • Amethyst
  • Garnet
  • Ruby
  • Topaz
  1. It will last for generations

Like a long-lasting marriage, your engagement ring must meet certain standards. If we are talking about diamonds, it pays to know the 4 C’s of diamonds, a grading system that determines overall quality and subsequently how much the diamond is worth.

If you arm yourself with the correct knowledge about diamonds and fine jewellery, the more you can tell if you’re getting your money’s worth. Natural diamonds are extremely durable and they can be passed down to future generations.
