What are your thoughts on cheap wedding rings?

There is no rule on what a man or woman should spend on an engagement ring. When you are on a budget, it’s important to do your homework and find out what options you have. Maybe your fiancé would be happier with larger stones on a wedding band and you can skip the engagement ring altogether. You can consider a cluster ring that gives you a larger appearance but for a much better price. If choosing a smaller diamond, you can focus more on the quality of the stone. If you have an heirloom piece, a jeweler may be able to update the setting to give it a more modern feel. There are so many options, just keep in mind the most important thing is to choose a ring you believe your soon to be fiancé will love.

What are the most popular diamond engagement rings?

At the moment, there are a few different looks that are trending in the world of engagement rings. My top three choices are all related to one another. We are seeing a big comeback for vintage-inspired designs. This has influenced the next two trends. First, we aren’t just seeing settings made in white gold and platinum anymore, but far more women are choosing yellow and rose gold which has a more classic feel. Second, is a trend for a variety of centre stone shapes, such as pear and marquise. These are diamond cuts that had gone out of style to be replaced with shapes such as round and princess. I believe as more and more young women have started inheriting their mothers and grandmothers’ diamonds, they have re-sparked a desire for these diamond cuts and with an added level of sentimentality.

If you want all of the benefits and tradition of a diamond ring but also would like to be a little more unique, consider a fancy-hued diamond, like yellow and pink, or even chocolate or black.

Why engagement rings have diamonds?

Diamonds have been used throughout history as a symbol of love. Anthropologist believes the tradition of using diamonds as a way of showing ownership dates back to the Romans. Diamonds are an excellent choice for a stone that is going to be worn every day. First of all, it is hard to imagine diamonds clashing with anything you wear. More practically, they are one of the hardest substances on earth, making it an excellent choice as far as durability for a piece of jewelry that gets so much wear and tear as an engagement ring does.

Do engagement rings have to match wedding bands? Why?

There was a time when it was in style to have the wedding band as an exact match to the engagement ring. Today there are fewer rules leaving a bit more room for creativity. One very popular look right now is to have miss-matched stackable bands. I love this idea because it allows for a ton of wearable options. You can have the rings all in the same metal color, or you can change it up and have them in yellow, white, and rose gold. I also love the idea of being able to add to the stack for future occasions, such as the birth of a child or special anniversary.

Why are engagement rings so expensive?

Engagement rings can get expensive depending on the size and quality of the metal and the stone chosen. Diamonds are typically used for the engagement ring, which happens to be on the higher price range of precious stones. Keep in mind, you only propose once. Take comfort in knowing her engagement ring will become one of the most important pieces of jewelry she will ever wear.

How to find the best engagement ring?

Engagement ring shopping can be nerve-racking. Doing a little research before you start running all over town looking for the ring can be very helpful. Look and see if the jewelry store is a member of any trade organizations such as the American Gem Society or if they have GIA graduate sales associates available to help walk you through the process. Look at the stores' online reviews so you can see what sort of experience you can expect. If you are working with a reputable and knowledgeable jeweler, you will have the best chance of feeling confident in your choice.
