How much should you spend on an engagement ring, and what is the best way to propose?


An engagement ring is a symbol of commitment and love. You propose your partner with a ring that is meaningful, valuable and most importantly attractive. There is no specific plan for spending on an engagement ring. It is more to do with the budget you have and the preference of your partner. When you are ready to propose your partner, the most crucial step is just in line; choosing the engagement ring. For many men, it can be an exhilarating experience. Read on to get a few tips on how should you be spending on an engagement ring.

  1. What would your partner like? The engagement ring should be purchased keeping in mind the preference of your partner.
  2. What size stone would she prefer? Most women like a big sized diamond to flaunt it to her friends and family.
  3. The most important thing – What is your budget? The budget matters the most because no matter what ring you choose, you will need to have the amount to pay for it. Get a ring that is affordable, preferably a clarity enhanced diamond ring.
  4. Do not settle for a cheap engagement ring.

So now you have purchased the perfect diamond ring for your sweetheart. The next step that is in line is the proposal. Proposing to your loved one for marriage or engagement can be nerve wrecking. First of all, you need to stay calm because nervousness can ruin any situation. Take control of the proposal and make sure you know it is the most important part of your life. Your future life depends on this proposal so give your best shot to impress your love. We have a few tips to help you out.

  1. You should know your girl to be able to propose her in the best way.

  3. If your girl likes attention than propose at a place where there is a crowd.
  4. Make it meaningful by saying a few words.
  5. Don’t adopt the traditional ‘proposing on the knees’ trick. Bring something new like proposing her on a hot air balloon, high in the sky.

Remember, proposing your girlfriend should come from the heart. Make the proposal meaningful and give your girl the best memories that she could cherish forever.


Various halo style diamond engagement rings

What is the most popular engagement ring?

The most classic diamond engagement ring is a Tiffany style four or six prong solitaire style.  However today our most popular diamond engagement ring is a little different.  The most popular ring features a round brilliance center stone and round cut accent diamonds with a HALO.  Halo refers to the accent stones that go around the main stone.  Variations of this theme are by far today’s most popular diamond engagement ring.  Some halos are round, and others are cushion or square shaped but again the most important thing is the ring has ALL round stones.  Round diamonds and have always been the most popular.  Round brilliant cut diamonds will also look the largest and have the most brilliance of any cut in an “apples to apples” comparison.   So there you have it, today’s most popular diamond engagement ring is a halo style with all round diamonds.

What is the best width for an engagement ring?

What is the best width for an engagement ring?

This question depends on taste, preference, and hand size however we always have an opinion.  There is a relationship between center stone size and band size.  The larger the band the smaller the center stone will look.  If you want the center stone to really POP than go with a band that is thinner approx less than 3mm.  A thin band, less than 1.5mm, will last a lifetime and never bend or become oval shape overtime with normal wear.  Larger width bands will make more of a statement but generally look best on women with larger hands or longer fingers.   We recommend 2-3mm width as an average, it will nice, not take away from the center stone, and hold up the best with regular wear.
