Learn everything you need to know about an engagement ring from the following FAQs:

An engagement ring signifies a promise between two people to wed. The tradition began in Europe in the Middle Ages. The first recorded use of a diamond engagement ring occurred in 1477 when Archduke Maximilian of Austria proposed to Mary of Burgundy.

Over time, engagement rings evolved into a more widespread tradition and solidified during the Victorian era-suitors proposed with the woman’s birthstone or a diamond, symbolizing enduring love. Though customs have changed, an engagement ring retains its meaning as a gesture of commitment.

Ultimately, your budget depends on financial circumstances. Some follow the “two months’ salary” rule as a budget baseline. The most important factor is choosing a ring within your means that fits your partner’s style.

Selecting a ring style suited to your partner’s personality makes it extra meaningful. Here are some popular engagement ring design options:

  • SolitaireCouples searching for a timeless and sophisticated engagement ring should consider moissanite solitaire rings. It can be featured in different shapes with different prong settings. The simplicity and elegance of this style make a lasting impression.
  • Side StoneMoissanite rings with side accent stones can create various vibes, and the side stones can be different gemstones or even diamonds to make the whole ring sparkle.
  • HaloA center moissanite is circled by a halo of smaller stones for a glamorous effect and visually makes the center stone look bigger.
  • VintageAlthough moissanite is a modern stone, it can be paired with a variety of vintage designs. Vintage lovers can always find moissanite rings with delicate detailing.
  • Cluster Clusters are typically a group of smaller gemstones surrounded by one large stone. The cluster engagement ring is an elegant symbol of lifelong commitment when you find that special someone. The ring represents centuries of love and romance.
  • ColorfulMake a statement with a gemstone ring featuring sapphires, rubies, or emeralds. Besides them, engagement rings have evolved to include personalized, non-traditional colored gemstones that are increasingly in demand. These include moss agate, opal, and tanzanite, among others. The ring’s metal band also carries significance. White gold and platinum suit modern brides, while those opting for a vintage look may prefer yellow or rose gold. The band’s thickness and width should suit the wearer’s size and style sensibilities. When in doubt, customizing a ring can ensure the perfect fit for your partner.

When selecting an engagement ring, it is crucial to carefully consider the centerpiece stone. The stone’s cut, size, and carat weight all play an integral role in the ring’s overall appearance and significance. Therefore, choosing these elements with great care and attention to detail is essential.

  • Shapes of The Center Stone – Gemstones come in different geometric appearances, classified into round and fancy shapes. The latter group includes as many as a dozen popular shapes that are currently available on the market. It is important to choose the shape that best suits her personality and style. Aside from the timeless round cuts, the oval and pear cuts have become the most sought-after styles in contemporary times. The marquise cuts and emerald cuts exude a vintage charm. In contrast, individuals inclined to contemporary fashion tend to lean towards the distinct shapes of princess cuts, kite cuts, and hexagonal cuts.

 

  • Size and Carat of The Center Stone – The size of the gemstone is the length and width of its top side, while the carat weight is the weight of the entire stone. Sometimes, the stones will be different sizes for the same carat weight, which results in some appearing larger and others smaller in the same carat. So, you should look at these two elements together when choosing a center stone. We understand you want the best for her, and sometimes, bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better. It’s important to consider the size of the center stone around her finger, as wearing a stone that is too large can look out of place. Choosing the right size is crucial for a beautiful and comfortable fit.

Beyond the dazzling ring, thoughtfully planning the proposal makes the moment truly meaningful. Tailor it to your partner’s personality and interests to create a personalized experience reflecting your love story. This makes saying “yes” unforgettable.
