Your engagement is one of the most beautiful milestones in your life. It spells the end of your single days and entry into a lifetime of companionship. To mark the union of two souls, the engagement ring has to be equally special. However, it’s not always easy to choose one. It takes many sleepless nights to plan the right stone, budget, cut, and design to find something truly unique that is worthy of your loved one. It is especially challenging when you see and hear everyone around you giving their views on what it should be like.
Rain City Jewellery, experts in the finest jewellery designs for engagements, marriages and other milestones in one’s life, dispels a few misconceptions to make the selection process easier for you.
Big diamonds are best: Many assume women prefer big diamonds for their big day. They believe that the bigger the diamond is, the bigger is the love for the person. This is untrue and creates unnecessary pressure to buy stones that don’t fit the fair lady. Quality diamonds are all about the 4C’s – cut, clarity, colour, and carat. The most exquisite diamonds are seldom massive. Also, big diamonds don’t suit everyone. If your lady is petite or has small dainty hands, a big solitaire may not flatter her at all. Many also prefer a simpler, more elegant look. Big rings may not be practical for those who have a more physically active life. Small rings carry beautifully cut stones that have more sparkle and shine than dull, bulky ones.
Expensive rings are better: Extravagance does not define love. If you are on a small budget, it does not mean your love is small or vice versa. That comes from a narrow mindset and many media misled stories about celebrities sporting big, expensive engagement rings to showcase the large heart of their suitors. At Rain City Jewellers, we have a wide variety of beautiful engagement rings for all hand types, tastes, and budgets. We are happy to help you choose one that is as unique as your lady, at a budget that’s tailored for you.
Solitaire is best: It’s a common misconception that a single diamond is best for an engagement ring. It’s a fashion trend more than a choice. At one time, solitaires made a statement. Now clusters of diamonds shaped into beautiful designs are highly popular too. You can set the stones on white or rose gold, or combine white, gold, and rose. No woman will ever complain about a few extra diamonds on her ring.
Fixed ring size: This is not true at all. It is good to have the perfect ring size before you set out to buy but it is not mandatory. You can always have it resized later for a better fit. However, it is easier to expand the ring than contract it to a smaller size. You can customize the ring too. Just make sure you have enough time to get it designed to propose or celebrate when the time arises. A proposal with the promise of a ring later is not quite ideal.
