How to buy a diamond engagement ring with confidence

So you’re about to shop for a diamond engagement ring in Rockland County but don’t know where to start or what questions to ask? Here’s what I suggest:

  • Style
  • Material
  • Diamond
  • Budget

First, decide what style, or styles, of engagement ring you like. There are several types of settings, materials and diamond shapes that determine the engagement ring style. For example you have traditional, contemporary, antique and custom settings. A traditional engagement ring setting would usually have a solitaire diamond setting. A contemporary setting would have a modern look and could have a central diamond surrounded by smaller diamonds or other precious stones. And an antique setting could literarily be an antique engagement ring, or it could be a new ring manufactured and treated to appear antique, which would beĀ referredĀ to as an “antique style” engagement ring.

The second step is to think about the materials. The materials you select for the engagement ring will be determined by personal taste as much as budget. White gold and platinum are popular engagement ring materials. In the past yellow gold was the most popular material for engagement rings. Today white gold is the most popular, and is a more affordable choice than platinum engagement rings, which leaves more of the budget available to invest in a diamond.

The next decision, which is a big decision, is the diamond. There are a lot of factors that must be considered when you are choosing a diamond for your engagement ring, including:

  • Shape
  • Cut
  • Color
  • Clarity
  • Weight
  • And ultimately budget

All of these factors are important to understand, and in the near future I’ll post a special article on how to buy a diamond with confidence.
