Diamond rings have long been synonymous with engagements, but their beauty and desirability is such that they’ve become popular tokens to commemorate a variety of occasions. Nothing captures a person’s attention like a stunning sparkling ring, and once you own a beauty diamond ring, it will become an item that you will treasure forever. A beautiful diamond ring makes the perfect gift for any occasion.

• Engagements An engagement is one of the most important occasions in a person’s life. It’s only natural then that the ring that you use to commemorate the occasion should be a perfect representation of the emotions that fill it. Diamond engagement rings also command a lot of attention, so it should be a ring that you are proud to show off.

When it comes to choosing engagement rings, people generally fall into two camps; the ones who want a traditional style ring and those who want something a little more unique and different. Thankfully, there is such a huge selection of rings available that you’ll be sure to find one that suits you.

If your style is more traditional, then a classic diamond solitaire ring will suit you perfectly. These stunning design classics will never go out of style. For a twist on the classic solitaire, why not choose an accent ring? These rings have the familiar central diamond flanked by stones on both sides, either diamonds or other gemstones. If you want all your rings to coordinate, you should consider a bridal set. In a bridal set, an engagement ring, wedding ring and sometimes an eternity ring all match and fit together perfectly.

• Anniversaries Every anniversary that a couple experiences is an important milestone. Although diamonds are traditionally used to commemorate a 60th wedding anniversary, there’s no real reason for you to wait that long to give your partner a beautiful diamond ring.

The perfect token to commemorate an anniversary is the eternity ring. They can either be described as ‘half’ or ‘full’. A half eternity ring has gemstones around the front of the band and a plain back while a full eternity ring has stones all the way around. Although a diamond eternity ring is the perfect gift for an anniversary, they can be given at any time to symbolise the eternal love that you have for your partner.

• Birthdays A birthday is the one day of the year where you do all you can to make your friend or loved one feel special. And nothing will make them feel more special than the gift of a diamond ring. For birthday gifts, fashionable diamond rings are more appropriate. Consider choosing multi gemstone rings where diamonds are enhanced and complimented with colourful stones like rubies, sapphires and emeralds. These rings show off diamonds perfectly without being as ostentatious as a solitaire or eternity ring. You could even give a jewellery set consisting of a ring, necklace and earrings so your loved one can always have the opportunity to wear diamonds.
