Diamond Engagement Ring Designs for Women

Where It All Begins

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and yet, when an engagement proposal is in sight, we are left to our own devices to figure it out. The media is overflowing with advice on the best cheap engagement rings. Everyone wants to educate us on the four C’s of diamonds. Even Warren Buffet once joined the party, stating that “If You Don't Know Jewelry, Know Your Jeweler”. Some say, start with a setting. And others say that the setting should be designed around the diamond. Gemologists say that it’s all about the GIA certificates, indicating the particulars of each diamond. Diamond jewelry appraisers say that the difference in price is in the details. We say, forget what everyone else says, begin your journey on your own terms and enjoy this experience of a lifetime!

All About the Diamond

The round cut diamond maximizes the amount of light that passes through the stone, thereby increasing the fire and scintillation. The princess cut is romantic. The cushion and emerald cuts create an optical illusion, making the diamonds appear bigger than they actually are. The pear and oval diamond cuts do not have any noteworthy preconceived notions, but your local jeweler will undoubtedly think of one, if asked to do so. Natural diamonds are romantic, because they are extracted from the earth. Lab created diamonds are not romantic, because they are artificially manufactured under conditions that closely resemble the process undergone by earth grown diamonds. If you are feeling overwhelmed by these and other opinions, we propose a simple solution to the predicament of diamond engagement rings - if a person gets on one knee, proposes and their partner says yes - it is the most romantic outcome that anyone can hope for!

To Solitaire, To Halo, To Three-Stone, To Side Stone or To Heck With All of the Above?

It is widely believed that the solitaire engagement ring originated in the 15th century. Many believe that the solitaire engagement ring is the most traditional and romantic design in the industry. However, this “tradition” dates back to the 15th century, in which Roman wives wore solitaire rings, indicating their husbands' ownership. The halo engagement ring originated in the 18th century in Europe, and often set with pearls at that time. The side stone aspect of engagement rings originated from the notion of abundance and aesthetic satisfaction. The three stone engagement ring represents friendship, love, and fidelity. Some believe that if a couple needs an engagement ring to represent fidelity, perhaps it’s worth holding off on the engagement. Others believe that it is immensely romantic to summarize the true building blocks of a successful marriage in an engagement ring. You probably guessed by now, that we believe something entirely different. As long as the engagement proposal takes place between two people whose relationship is based on love and trust, the specific design of their engagement ring will merely serve as the icing on the cake. At the same time, if you are looking for a Cheap Engagement Ring Set, we are always ready to assist!

Bringing It All Together

In conclusion, we are all entitled to our own opinions, but it is up to each individual and/or couple to figure out what works best for them. We believe that the most effective way to make the right decision in the context of diamond engagement rings is to ask the right questions, based on what is most important to you and your partner. And finally, prior to posing questions to an online engagement ring store or your local jeweler, discuss with your partner first, to help get you on the right path to the ultimate engagement proposal.
