Engagement rings: how to choose the right one

Diamond Engagement Rings Sydney 

Love and marriage, love and marriage,
They go together like a horse and carriage.
This I tell you, brother,
You can’t have one without the other.

But in between love and marriage comes an engagement ring! And what a crucial decision that has to be — should it come as a complete surprise to be proffered with the proposal, in which case you’ve got to get the ring size right first time? Or should you go shopping together, in which case she’s bound to find out what your budget is? Are you sure you understand her taste well enough to choose the ring that you want her to wear joyfully for the rest of her life on your own? If you take her mother or sister or best friend into your confidence, will she be bitterly offended? What should you do if your own mother wants to give you one of her precious rings as your engagement ring?

Diamonds are forever

In Australia as in the rest of the world, over 90 per cent of engagement rings tend to have diamonds in them, but in Australia the trend is towards fancy coloured diamonds — pink, yellow, even blue. The average price of an engagement ring is about A$5,000, and the usual setting is clean, simple and classic — a ring you could never get tired of.

Ring her at Diamonds by Design

Diamonds by Design can help you, whether you need advice on what to buy and the price you should be paying or which stones to pick and how to have them set — we can either find you new stones or reset old ones — and Diamonds by Design can even explain how to insure the ring and how to keep it clean. We’ll make sure that you have a bespoke engagement ring to be proud of, now and forever, and one that will be the envy of your family and friends. And by the way, you don’t wear your engagement ring for the wedding ceremony!

Love and marriage, love and marriage,
It’s an institute you can’t disparage.
Ask the local gentry
And they will say it’s elementary.
Sammy Cahn
