WHICH RING MODEL SHOULD I CHOOSE?

WHAT ARE THE CHOICES OF PRECIOUS METAL?

Our engagement rings are made with precious metals such as platinum and yellow, pink, or white gold. A favorite choice? Our 18Kt white gold ring with palladium alloy is a hypoallergenic metal that retains its whiteness, unlike nickel, which tarnishes over time. One thing is certain; we will help you find a premium ring within your budget.

WHAT DIAMOND SIZE TO CHOOSE?

Once your ring is chosen, make it shine with a thousand lights thanks to the diamond that you will select. In addition to the always popular round shape, many sizes are sought: cushion, princess, oval, etc. Let your originality run free!

WHICH DIAMOND CRITERION SHOULD I SELECT?

When it comes to choosing a diamond, you need to consider the 4Cs of the diamond. Before considering color, purity or carat, the most important criterion to look at is the cut of the diamond. If the diamond cut is not good, it will not be as brilliant as another cut correctly. A diamond with an excellent or very good cut is what you should be looking for. 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO MAKE A RING?

From the moment you select your engagement ring, you should plan a period ranging from 2 weeks to a month, depending on the time of year. If it’s a custom creation, allow a few more weeks.

It is not necessary. We suggest that you come back to see us about three months before the wedding date to choose your wedding rings.

Naturally, a pretty black box comes with your ring. Such a precious asset must be elegantly dressed and protected!

Types of Engagement Rings with Diamonds

Traditionally, a wedding ring is made in the form of a smooth strip of precious metal with a width of 3 to 12 mm, most often gold. There are corrugated options or models made of several metals, such as white and yellow gold. However, the most popular in recent years have become wedding steel engagement rings made of gold with diamonds. Of course, the design of the ring depends only on the jeweler’s imagination and skill, but at the same time, there are several generally accepted types.

Classic rings

Solitaire ring is a classic form – an elegant frame with one stone.

HALO Ring is a larger form – several small ones surround one large diamond.

Ring with three stones – deep symbolism, two smaller ones are placed in it on both sides of a large central stone. This specimen symbolizes the unity of a loving couple. Small stones mean “you” and “me”, and large “we”. According to another version, the stones symbolize the past, present and future.

Vintage rings

In this category, it is customary to distinguish three areas.

Victorian includes rings manufactured between 1835 and 1900. Usually used is yellow gold. The design was simple but elegant. In most cases, jewelers took one or more diamonds for decoration. The Tiffany ring is recognized as a classic, in which the diamond is placed in a frame with 6 cloves.

Edwardian includes the period from 1900 to 1920. Then platinum, sapphires and rose-cut diamonds came into fashion. Types of frames for this type of rings: groove and pave.

Art Deco Rings. The peak of their popularity falls in the period from 1920 to 1930. At that time, rings were made mainly of platinum and decorated with a variety of colorful stones. Diamonds were placed in a frame with 4 cloves.

Unique engagement rings

One of the most sophisticated jewelry techniques is Mokume Gane, who came from Japan. It lies in the fact that several non-ferrous metals are fused into one, the surface of which becomes patterned, resembling wood lines. The technology is extremely complex and widely used.

With the development of technology, jewelry made using the Mokume Gane technique is available at many jewelry stores. However, they are quite expensive and require a special selection of companion products.
