Getting engaged is one of the biggest decisions of your life that needs to be celebrated with the best and the most unique ring. Your special relationship deserves a special ring that reflects your personality and love for each other. Fortunately there are a lot of different styles, designs, cuts, metals and patterns to choose from and there are a lot of jewelry designers who can design a specially tailored dream engagement ring for your bride to be.
These unique engagement rings can be as vibrant and colorful as your relationship or you can opt for the timeless classic solitaire in white gold or platinum designs that are elegant and subtle. The exclusivity of the design makes these rings special as compared to the other engagement rings that are inspired from celebrity rings and look like they have been molded though a cookie-cutter. Here are some simple guidelines that you need to follow when choosing unique engagement rings for your special someone
You know your bride-to-be well enough to know the kind of stones she would like to flaunt. So rather than experimenting, it is best to opt for stones that she likes. Solitaires are definitely up on everyone’s list but you have to think of budgeting too and based on that try to get the best carat, color, cut and clarity in the solitaire for her. There are some who prefer gemstones as opposed to the blood diamonds. In that case you can choose from emerald, rubies, amethyst, sapphire etc to adorn the engagement ring.
The shape of the stone is also important when designing the perfect engagement ring. Some women like rough cut diamonds while others have a preference for various shapes like oval, heart, round, square, triangle, hexagon etc. Keep her interest in the shape of the stone in mind when ordering your unique engagement ring.
The metal in which you engrave your ring is extremely important as not everyone likes yellow gold while some others may find platinum to plain for their choice. In terms of durability platinum and tungsten are your best bets but yellow, rose and white gold are easier on the budget. Make the right choice when selecting the metal vis-à-vis the stone too and see that the stone and the metal match aesthetically with each other.
Gone are the days when the engagement ring should equate at least 2 months of your pay-check. You need to be practical about the financial situation and budget accordingly as the idea is to not incur debts just to buy a fancy engagement ring. Even the bride-to-be wouldn’t want to begin your new life as a couple by paying debts.
Last but not the least choose the perfect design that you think will entice your lady-love. Most women prefer intricate vintage designs however there are many who prefer simple modern designs so create a design that will suit your to be fiancés personality.
Keeping all the above parameters in mind, you can design the perfect and unique engagement ring that will be a special reminder of your love for each other.
