Time to tie the knot?

Updated: Jan 16, 2023

Thinking of popping the question and tying the knot?

What should you look for when buying an engagement ring?

The most important thing to consider when buying a ring is your paramour’s taste. Whether you go for a regal sapphire and diamond cluster ring or a classic diamond single stone ring make sure you consider their taste.

Many people nowadays propose with a small “promise ring” and then pick the forever ring together.

If you would like to pick the ring yourself, there are important factors to consider. It might be worth talking to a close friend or family member of theirs.

Ask yourself:

a) What type of jewellery does your loved one currently wear?

b) Do they favour silver, yellow gold or platinum pieces?

c) Have they mentioned whether they like the idea of an antique piece with history?

d) Do they have a favourite colour? Maybe you can incorporate that into the ring.
