When choosing diamond engagement rings you want to make sure you make the perfect choice to please your fiancée. Budget, diamond know how, a good jeweller and metal type are some of the other areas to consider. Below are some points to bear in mind when buying engagement rings that can otherwise be forgotten in the rush of excitement to purchase a ring:

The setting for diamonds

Choosing a setting for your diamond or diamonds can be one of the most complicated choices. There are so many settings to choose from such as three stone settings, channel settings, bridal sets and the popular solitaire settings. These are just some of the traditional settings and more are becoming available all the time.

Certification and appraisal

You need to ensure that diamonds are provided with an appraisal of the value. Make sure that the jeweller lets you know if any treatments have been used such as laboratory enhancements or fillers. If there haven’t been any treatments you should get a certificate of authenticity. When you come to insure your ring, this certificate will be important.


Finally you should make sure there is a decent warranty with diamond engagement rings. By getting rings maintained in this way you can ensure that it remains as sparkling and brilliant as the first day you wore it.
