When we talk about beautiful engagement rings, there is a plethora of options you can choose from. There are diamond rings, gold rings, platinum bands ... the list just goes on. On your engagement, it is obvious you want something special, something meaningful. This ring is going to stay with you forever; remind you of a special day for the rest of your life. Selecting an engagement ring depends on your budget and your taste. Here are a few options that will help you to narrow down on the perfect ring.
Diamonds―a woman's best friend.
Traditionally, if not bands, people always opted for diamonds. Diamonds, however, are costly. But then, an engagement is one of the few occasions where you can gift someone a solitaire.
Diamonds is a fantastic option, but as mentioned, it is a very expensive option. Instead of that, what you can have is ring made of precious metal―gold, platinum, titanium, or white gold. Another advantage of these all metal rings is that these are available in a wide range of designs. You can also get them engraved.
No Tension With Tension
Traditional engagement rings can be given a modern twist with tension rings. Normally, clasps and prongs are used to hold together the stone in the ring or two ends of the ring. But in this type of a ring, the ends are held in place by the help of sheer pressure at each end of the ring. These are extremely beautiful. Instead of the expensive diamond, you can have another precious stone set in these rings.
Commitment with a Stone
Instead of focusing on the metal, you can select a semiprecious stone, which is a little larger in size. Some precious stones in that size can also come under your budget. If you are all for stones, this type of ring is the right choice for you.
If you are looking for something truly meaningful, you can zero in on a heirloom rings. These are passed from generation to generation and the sentiments behind those rings is what makes these rings beautiful. On the other hand, intricately carved filigree rings too can be a fabulous choice; they look absolutely gorgeous.
An engagement ring should reflect who you are. While a diamond ring is one of the most traditional choices, it is better you choose one that suits your personality. Discuss these options with your partner to zero in on something mutually special.
