With so many things to consider when it comes to choosing an engagement ring, The Diamond Guy’s philosophy is to ensure that you get the absolute best quality for your specific budget!

1: Set a budget that works for you

Forget that old-school tip about spending 3-month’s salary on an engagement ring, rather set a budget that’s comfortable for you. The price of an engagement ring would be determined on the size, colour and clarity of the centre diamond (or moissanite) as well as the design.

2: Choose your shape

You should carefully consider your shape options when buying an engagement ring because it will affect how the ring looks on the finger. Have a look at the different diamond shapes and how each shape is unique in its own aspects.

3: Choose a design

Committing to a design can be daunting. Choosing the right engagement ring style is one of the most important steps in buying an engagement ring for your fiancé-to-be. The ring setting plays a role not just in determining how the ring looks, but also in determining which type of diamond is the best option for you. Luckily, working out the best engagement ring style for your partner isn’t as difficult as it may first seem. This is because each engagement ring style has its own unique advantages and disadvantages. For example, some styles are light, simple and elegant, making them great choices if your partner likes classic and timeless beauty. Others are more opulent and have decorative features, such as a halo of diamonds or multiple stones, like a trilogy ring. Have a look at our engagement ring gallery for some ideas. All engagement rings are available to be manufactured in 9k and 18k white, yellow and rose gold as well as platinum.

4: The Grand finale

Once a diamond shape and a ring design have been established, I will send you a 3D rendering or CAD design showing what the final engagement ring will look like, and from there any changes can be made. Manufacturing would take around +-10/15 working days depending on how simple or intricate the engagement ring is.
