Choosing an Engagement Ring For Her

When you think popping the question to the love of your life wasn’t hard enough, choosing the perfect engagement ring that they will adore can sometimes be an even more difficult task.

There is a lot more to engagement rings than the price and size, and for this kind of investment, it’s important you have the right information and knowledge to make a final decision in which you’ll be happy with.

Engagement Ring Styles

Do you know what kind of cut is best for diamonds? What rings are better suited for petite hands or wide fingers? Do you know the difference between a round cut diamond ring and a princess cut diamond ring? We don’t want you going in blind when you go on the hunt for an engagement ring, so we’ve put together a brief step by step guide in order to help you on your engagement ring quest.

The 5 main things you need to consider


If you’re one for tradition, it’s known that an engagement ring should cost three month’s salary! Evidently, that is a simple traditional take and your budget should be something you’re comfortable with. You can either set a budget at the very beginning of your search or at the very end. Some find it easier to choose a budget once they know the shape and style of an engagement ring, and others find more comfort in setting a budget straight away. There’s no right or wrong way to go about it!


This is an essential piece of the puzzle you do NOT want to get wrong. If you’re observant enough to notice your partners jewellery choices and fashion choices, this step just got easier for you! If you’re unsure about the kind of style your partner likes, it’s time to come up with subtle ways of finding that out! Go on a shopping day out and accidentally stumble into a jewellery store or ask her family and friends!


This is another step you don’t want to get wrong either. Choosing the right size engagement ring for your partner is a must. So, whether you have to ‘borrow’ one of their rings for a few hours to get the size of it, measure a ring she may wear on another finger or interrogate her friends for the correct ring size, you have got to get it!

The 5 C’s help you determine the quality of a diamond ring by evaluating it’s clarity, cut, colours, carat, and certificate. You can learn more about this on our infographic below.

Choosing The Diamond

This is the part where it might seem a bit (or a lot rather) daunting. There is a wide range of diamond shapes to choose from and it might give you a headache just thinking about them. However, the style you have determined for your partner helps greatly in choosing the diamond shape. Is she a classy business woman that takes pride in her looks? Maybe you should be thinking about a round cut engagement ring. Or is she a vintage style inspired woman that loves things different? An emerald engagement ring could be the one!

The decision will not come lightly, and it’d be sensible to do as much research as you can in order to make the final decision the right one.
