Choosing a Diamond Setting Style

Diamond setting is how the stone is set into the metal band. There are solitaire setting, channel setting, bezel setting, prong setting, etc. The diamond setting of your engagement ring determines how your main diamond is set and gives your diamond engagement ring personality and beauty, whether it is a solitaire engagement ring, a three stone engagement ring or a halo engagement ring. If your fiancée has a real job, you may want to consider a bezel or flat setting style, as the diamond will not stand out as much as other styles and will not get in the way of her work.

Choosing the Metal of the Ring Band

Traditionally, diamond engagement rings are mainly made of yellow gold, white gold, platinum and rose gold. Different metals represent different styles; for example, yellow gold is a symbol of elegance and luxury, white gold and platinum represent elegance and luxury, and rose gold represents fashion and modernity. As for which metal to choose, you should match your partner’s style to the metal of her existing accessories.

Moreover, which metal you choose for your diamond engagement ring has a lot to do with your budget. Platinum is the rarest and purest of the four metals, and it is sensitive skin friendly, making it the most expensive of the four. White gold has the same white appearance as platinum and is a great alternative to platinum. For couples who are on a low budget, white gold is the perfect choice. Gold is one of the most precious metals in the world, but pure 24k gold is too soft for everyday wear, so 18k gold is a better choice for diamond engagement rings. 18k engagement ring gold is a composite of 75% gold and 25% other alloys, making it softer and more affordable than platinum. For couples on a lower budget, 14k engagement ring gold, which is made up of 58.3% gold and 41.7% other pure alloys, is the perfect choice as it is considered durable.

Insist on Authoritative Diamond Certification

Buying a diamond engagement ring can be one of the most expensive investments of a lifetime, so make sure the diamond you buy is certified by an authoritative laboratory. However, not all diamond certificates are equally reliable, and you should always insist on certificates from the industry’s most reliable laboratories, the GIA and AGS, that provide accurate, reliable and consistent grading of factors such as cut, color, clarity, and carat of diamonds.
