Tips to Finding the Right Modern Style of Engagement Rings



Even with the changing times, the traditions that precede and succeed weddings have remained constant. Presenting an engagement ring just before the proposal to the future bride has always been the man's main jittery task before the long haul to the altar. But even before that, picking from a variety of unique engagement rings that she would like and would be perfect for her is usually the hard part in every ring shopping that you would have to do.

While there are already preset modern engagement rings in boutiques and online jewelry stores, it is better to load up on the knowledge and tips on finding the best type of ring for your girl. After all, this will be the only time that you would present her with an engagement ring, and when you pop the question, it is better to do it when you are assured that you have done everything to make it a special night and special ring just for her.

Whether you are looking for three-stone rings, lone princess cut diamond engagement rings, settings with side stones, or if you want to design your own diamond, then this guide will help you understand the different aspects of a ring that you should not ignore or forget.

Color the diamonds

The center cut diamond is like the centerpiece of the engagement ring. For some women, the size matters, because it means extra bragging rights on how big a stone they got from their future husband. However, if you do not have the budget for a big diamond engagement ring, you can opt to go with the more modern appeal of colored diamonds that you can find in majority of cheap engagement rings.

There have been several celebrities and important people who have opted to sidestep the traditional clear diamond to go with a colored stone. The most famous of these cases include Princess Diana's (now Kate Middleton's) 18-carat oval blue sapphire and diamond engagement ring.

Singer Carrie Underwood was spotted with a five-carat yellow diamond for her engagement ring, said to be worth $150,000. Red is also a surprising but good choice of color for an engagement ring, as seen on Jessica Simpson's finger when Nick Lachey proposed to her. And those who think that a black diamond would not do well to be an engagement ring, then Carmen Electra and Carrie Bradshaw of the popular hit series Sex and the City have both proven that not only is black a sexy color even for engagement rings, but it can also set you apart from the rest. Plus it is slightly less expensive that a clear diamond.

The only hard rule here is to make sure that the color of the stone matches the design that you want. Whether you are setting it on a white gold band or having a three-stone ring design, make sure that it is tasteful especially from a woman's point of view and not only from men's personalized view.

Different cuts, different strokes Next, you have to distinguish the difference between the cut and the shape of a diamond. Basically, there are three types of cuts. The brilliant cut is the most favorite and often picked type of cut because they provide a nice shine to the stone. They are able to reflect light, and can be done to several types of diamond shapes.

Step cuts provide extra texture to a diamond since they are cut and made to look like steps. These emphasize the clarity of a gemstone, so if there is a flaw in the diamond, it will easily show. Emerald cuts are considered as a step cut, and it is one of the best shapes for engagement rings.

There are also rings designs that make use of mixed cuts so they can get the good aspects of both brilliant and step cuts. princess cut engagement rings are the most current trending designs in the market. It has a flat square top but with intricate edges that are reminiscent of round brilliant cut diamonds.

Next you have to know the shape of the diamond that your sweetheart would want. There are vintage shapes that have been a favorite of many brides. These include the Asscher cut, which appears to be an octagon shape because of the deep cuts on its corners.

Oval diamonds are also a hit, considering how more celebrities are opting to combine this semi-vintage shape with a colored stone, an unusual setting, or a differently colored band.

Banded forever You should also consider the color of the band. Generally, there are three main band colors-yellow gold, white gold, and platinum. Yellow gold has dominated the engagement ring scene as far back, and it is viewed as the most traditional of all engagement ring metals. You can purchase yellow gold in 14-carat or 18-carat, but make sure that when you buy it there are no scratches, because this is the type that would easily show scratches and flaws.

Most people mistake white gold for silver. Though this silver-like appearance will wear off and have to be replaced, it is more expensive than regular yellow gold because it easily matches gold, platinum, or silver accessories and jewelries.

Platinum is ultimately the most modern, most expensive, and most sought after as an engagement ring trend today. It is expensive because it is resistant to tarnishing. However, repair can be a pain because it is also very expensive.

Setting is everything Setting here does not pertain to the location or place where you would propose-though that is also important when the time comes. When talking about settings, you have to know the standard and custom settings that you can arrange for engagement rings.

There are several types of settings like channel set rings, gemstone settings contemporary/tension, or prong. What you should remember is that the setting is the basic foundation of the ring as it will hold everything together, so it is important especially if you want more elaborate rings like white gold pave cathedral styles or settings with sidestones.
