More and more couples are opting to design their engagement ring together (I read some crazy stat that 80%+ of women would make changes to their wedding set had they been consulted).
But, there is the obvious argument that this detracts from the societal norm of surprising your future spouse so pay attention to images that your partner pins, saves or comments on. This will be an excellent indicator or his/her style preference!
Do your best to ascertain finger size. Nothing is worse than the separate anxiety that follows an engagement if your rock is being sized!
Perhaps a high set solitaire isn’t conducive to massage therapists, dental hygienists and stylists given their chose professions.
The Wedding Band
Although it may feel premature we always counsel our clients to consider the future wedding band. Reason being, accents and embellishments that are going to be buried underneath the wedding band mate are perhaps better suited for just that. Don’t throw your money away on a feature that won’t be showcased but rather build it into the wedding band.
We are of the opinion that hand selecting your stone (be in diamond or gem) and pairing it with a setting that you create often represents the greatest value (and most often a higher quality finished product).
Coloured bridal is growing in popularity. If opting for a beautiful gemstone please do your homework! We are unaware of the amount of abuse we subject our hands to and the hardness of a stone is critical for a ring.
Make sure to have your ring appraised and furthermore, confirm that it comes from a trained, preferably third party gemologist (not the assistance manager of a box store with no formal training/education/expertise in determining the replacement cost of an item)
