Shopping for an engagement ring is no easy feat. There are multiple options available that can often leave you confused and sometimes what you like doesn’t really look so good on the finger. Whether you are getting the ring for your woman as a surprise or the two of you are going engagement ring hunting together, here are some design ideas you can choose from, to narrow down your search a little. Decide your budget, pick a style and then look for something like it in a jewelry shop to find the perfect ring to celebrate your bond.
Love bands are increasingly becoming popular with couples with both the girl and guy opting for matching bands as their engagement ring. These bands come in metals like white gold, gold, silver and platinum and can be plain or with some diamonds studded in them. Some couples even inscribe each other’s names on their rings. Bands are not very expensive and you can get good ones in under Rs 50,000.
A solitaire is a classic engagement ring design that is relevant even today. Most women like this kind of design but remember, it can burn a hole in your pocket because a solitaire is much more expensive than smaller diamonds studded together. If you have a big budget for your engagement ring, you can opt to buy a solitaire as it will never go out of style. Solitaires also come in different shapes like square, rectangle, oval, round, pear, etc. You can choose one that appeals to you the most and even have other smaller diamonds around it if your budget permits.
It doesn’t always have to be a solitaire when it comes to engagement rings. You can opt for beautiful rings with amazing diamond settings as well. In such a case, it is important you pick a design that your woman loves. From delicate designs to elaborate ones and to ones that look like solitaire, you have a plethora of options to choose from. This design also gives you the flexibility to see something based on your budget.
Many couples are moving away from opting for diamonds for their engagement rings. They are open to options of other gemstones as well such as ruby, emerald, sapphire, etc or even their birth stones. While you can add diamonds around this ring as well, the main stone can be a gemstone. But if you are planning to surprise your lady love, be completely sure that she is someone who is open to the idea of such a ring.
