How to Select a Classic Engagement Ring

Maintain Your Personal Style

Consider the jewelry you wear on a regular basis; if you prefer silver, a yellow-gold engagement ring may not be the best match. "When designing a ring, ensure that it is completely reflective of your personal style and taste." "Avoid succumbing to the year's fleeting trend," say the experts at Finer Custom Jewelry.

Don't Get Stuck on Trends

While researching the latest trends can help you narrow down your options, don't be swayed by something that doesn't fit with your natural sense of style. "Trends come and go, but your ring should represent you every year." 

Maintain simplicity

"There's a reason why a timeless solitaire is called 'timeless.' Solitaires allow your center stone to shine while remaining classic," says Reinsmith. Select colored stones with care as well. "The number one rule for keeping your engagement ring timeless is to avoid using colored gemstones as accents.

Consider Durability

If you want your ring to be truly timeless, it must also be physically durable. "Avoid thin, delicate bands." "While super thin bands look great on Instagram, they are not durable enough to last for years," says Reinsmart. "Diamonds are the hardest material on the planet, but precious metals like gold and platinum can bend or break from rough wear." If you're thinking about replacing the diamond with another stone, keep in mind that not every stone can withstand years of use and abuse. Special stones may necessitate special care."When exposed to rapid temperature changes or a lack of moisture in the air, opals can crack easily," warns Finer Custom Jewelry. "On the other hand, emeralds may need to be oiled several times and cannot be cleaned with just any cleaning supply."

Invest in the stone rather than the setting

"If you decide to change your setting later in life, resetting a center stone is a relatively inexpensive and simple procedure." "Trading in your stone, on the other hand, can be much more difficult and expensive," says Reinsmith. "It's better to go with a simpler style and invest in a better center stone when choosing an engagement ring than a super intricate setting with a lower quality center stone."

"Pave set diamonds on the band are great, as are hidden halos, a satin finish, and micro halos, but do you need all of these elements on your ring to look great?" says Matthew Kaufmann, co-founder of JK & Co. ”
