When it comes to diamond engagement rings, couples have two options: go with a style that's been around for centuries or pick something new. For some, the traditional diamond solitaire is perfect; for others, they want something more ornate and unique. No matter what type of ring you choose, there are many different styles available to suit your personal taste and budget.
Choose a Diamond With Sparkle & Fire
The most important factor in a diamond is its sparkle. If a diamond has no sparkle, it’s like not having any color to a painting. It takes away from the beauty and makes it seem dull, even if it’s a beautiful stone.
Sparkle refers to the amount of light that reflects back to the viewer when looking at the stone head on or from above. The higher quality diamonds will have more sparkle than lower quality ones because they have better cut proportions and polish, which create more light dispersion resulting in brightness and fire.
Fire refers to how much dispersion there is into all of the colors within white light (red, yellow and blue). Most people associate fire with pink diamonds but this can also happen with any other color grade as well, including yellow diamonds as they show off their amazing amber shades when viewed under certain lighting conditions such as direct sunlight or incandescent bulbs. In general though most people will agree that if you look at a diamond over someone’s shoulder then this would be considered having good fire because there should be little difference between viewing angles compared against those who don’t see anything at all! You may notice however that even though one stone might appear differently under different lighting conditions another stone could still appear equally special regardless what kind
Show Off the Decorated Side of the Band
You may be wondering where to put the center stone. If you want to show off both sides of the band, then it's recommended that you place it on a side opposite from where the diamonds are placed. This will allow people to see both sides of your ring and appreciate its beauty from all angles!
Choose the Stone Shape That Works for You
Choosing the shape of a diamond is one of the most important decisions you will make when purchasing an engagement ring. A diamond's cut, clarity, color and carat weight are all vitally important to its value. But once you have settled on these factors, it's time to choose an appropriate stone shape that works for your style, personality and lifestyle.
Now let’s take a look at some popular engagement ring shapes:
Round Cut - The classic round cut diamond has been popular for centuries because it looks beautiful on any finger shape and has universal appeal across all cultures and traditions. This is what most people think of when they hear “diamond engagement ring." Round diamonds come in many sizes—from 0.40 carats (huge) down to 0.003 carats (tiny). If you want something really fancy with lots of sparkle but not too much bling then opt for a ¾ carat round cut diamond instead of 1 carat because they look bigger than they actually are due to optical illusion!
Princess Cut - Princess cuts are similar in appearance but slightly elongated than their round counterparts because they have fewer facets; therefore less light reflects off them which means less sparkle but better value if budget constraints apply!
If possible try before buying so see which best suits your needs...
When it Comes to Center Stones, Go With Your Gut
Choosing the right center stone is crucial to getting the most bang for your buck, as well as finding a ring that's beautiful and unique.
If you're on a budget, here are some suggestions:
A round cut diamond (also called a princess cut) is simple and classic. It's also less expensive than other cuts because it doesn't have any fancy edges or facets, which can increase its value by 20-30%. If your partner isn't too picky about textures and feels, this could be a good choice for him or her.
If you want something more feminine than a round cut but still want something traditional, consider an oval stone instead of round—it has slightly more sparkle without being too flashy!
And if you're looking for something really special... I would recommend one of these two cuts:
For an Unforgettable Ring, Go Custom.
As we've mentioned, custom rings offer a lot of benefits. They're unique to you and your partner's style, which means that they'll be cherished for years to come. Plus, if you're on a budget and want something small but significant (like many millennials are), then the custom route might just be your best bet for getting the most bang for your buck.
Engagement rings may not be as varied in style as wedding bands, but there are still lots of options for couples to choose from.
A wide variety of styles and designs are available in engagement rings. The most popular diamond cut is the round brilliant cut, but there are many other options as well. In addition to diamonds, which are the most common stone found in engagement rings, a variety of other precious stones can be used as well—from emeralds and sapphires to rubies and opals.
Engagement rings can also come in different colors beyond white gold. Silver is another popular option for those who want their engagement ring to stand out from all others. Gold-plated metals such as platinum or palladium will give your engagement ring an elegant look that can stay polished for years without tarnishing like silver would over time (although they won't be quite as shiny).
The shape of the band should complement both the style and size of your diamond; there is no one-size-fits-all thing when it comes to choosing exactly what works best for you! You might prefer something simple with rounded edges like a traditional solitaire setting with just one stone mounted on top—but if you're looking for something more eye catching then maybe something more elaborate would be right up your alley!
You may find yourself wondering whether size matters when looking through pictures online: yes it does! It's important not only because everyone has different preferences when it comes into play but also because people have varying budgets so if someone wants something bigger than others could afford then they might feel left out if everyone else gets theirs first."
As you can see, there are many different types of engagement ring styles that you can choose from. The most important thing is to find one that suits your personal tastes and matches your personality. If you’re unsure about what type of ring is right for you, talk with someone who knows a lot about them (like us!) and take their advice into consideration when making your final decision.
