Sunday, May 7th 2017

One of the most important pieces of jewerly – engagement ring. Now that you’ve found your perfect match, it’s time to find the perfect ring.  We know that buying an engagement ring is one of the most important (and stressful!) purchases of your life, and we know that you spend months searching for a ring that she’ll love for a lifetime.

Like so many great traditions, the gifting of an engagement ring originated in 15th century when Archduke Maximillian of Austria presented an engagement ring to his fiance just before their wedding. Since then, the tradition has not been interrupted and today 70 percent of women worldwide get this popular symbol as the promise of eternal love.

If you take Her to purchase the engagement ring , the decision will definitely be easier but ma n do that secretly and carefully to be sure she will be impressed by the most important moment of her life. You need to find the ring she likes, the right size of it and defined by her style.  We’re here to help guide you through the process to find the best value and quality while choosing a ring that she’ll be showing off to her friends and family for years to come!

Stone type

The most popular stone for the engagement ring is a diamond – solitaire shape tends to be the number one choice for engagement rings, as it enhances the diamond’s depth and sparkle. Stone that symbolizes the strength, eternity and love.


Cut is the most important and the only characteristic of diamond with human impact on it. Cut has the greatest influence on a diamond’s sparkle. The most common diamond shape is round, followed by princess-cut, rectangular or emerald-cut, pear-shaped cut, marquise- cut, oval, heart, baguette, etc.


Diamonds come naturally in every color of the rainbow. Although most people thinkthat diamonds are colorless they have a tinge of yellow, gray and brown color. The most valuable and rare colour is white, that is to say, colourless. Diamonds with a very strong and distinct colour are extremely rare and are called fancies- pink, blue, red and there are black ones too. Jewellers grade absolutely colourless diamonds with a “D”. The scale moves up to “Z” and, between these two extremes, diamonds will display subtle coloured tones. GIA’s (Gemolological Institute of America) D to Z diamond color-grading system measures the degree of colorlessness by comparing a stone under controlled lighting and precise viewing conditions to masterstones of established color value.


Natural diamonds are the result of carbon exposed to tremendous heat and pressure deep in the earth. This process can result in a variety of internal characteristics called ‘inclusions’.A diamond that is free of inclusions and surface blemishes is very rare…and therefore very valuable.  According to the GIA Diamond Clarity Scale they are represented with ‘IF‘ with no inclusions visible under 10x magnification.


Diamond carat weight is the measurement of how much a diamond weighs. A metric “carat” is defined as 200 milligrams. As the carat weight of a diamond increases so does its rarity and therefore its price. Larger diamonds are more rare and more desirable so one carat diamond worth more than 100 tiny diamonds by 0,01ct.


You can choose between the highly popular white tones, yellow or rose gold tones. If you need guidance in choosing, look at your future fiancé’s current jewelry – does she wear a lot of sterling silver of white tones? You should check if she has an allergic reaction to some specific metal.


If she wears rings, borrow one she already owns from her jewelry box if she is not with you at the moment of purshase the engagement ring. After you come to our jelelry shop with that ring and we define the size you shold seamlessly return it. If you are not good at ‘borrowing‘ you can always contact her mom and she would definitely find the way to help you determing the right engagement ring size.

If you bought the wrong engagement ring size, do not worry – you can always come together to one of our jewelry stores and we will resize it. The most important is that she said Yes to you!

Jewerly design

Pay attention to the kind of jewelry she already wears. Is she more classic or modern?Do her pieces tend to be more delicate and traditional or modern and chunky? Sleek or ornate? If you buy something similar to what she already likes, you can’t go wrong. Have these preferences in mind when you set out to shop:

  • ring should be easy to wear
  • it should be defined by her style
  • gemstone should be properly fixed
  • You should like it at all
