There’s certainly an art to choosing the perfect engagement rings. To achieve the best results, it’s important for you to bear in mind the tastes and preferences of your other half. After all, she is the one who will be wearing it and so it’s crucial she falls in love with the gleaming object.

Thankfully, there’s no shortage of products for you to take your pick from. As long as you know where to look, you’ll not struggle to source items that really complement your partner’s style.

Love Actually

One woman who’s found love and may well have the perfect ring to show for it is actress Keira Knightley. The star, who’s appeared in many blockbusters, including Love Actually, is to get hitched to Klaxons rocker James Righton.

The pair announced their engagement via a spokeswoman, who remarked: “I can confirm that Keira is engaged to be married to James Righton.” She added: “We are not discussing any further details”. The couple have been together for 15 months and are now keen to take their relationship to the next level.

How we can help

If you’ve found the woman you want to spend the rest of your life with and are keen to propose to, we’re here to help you get the perfect ring to pop the question. Here at Marlows Diamonds we’re experts when it comes to items like this.

To get your selection right, it’s a good idea to try to put yourself in your partner’s shoes and think as she would if she were perusing her options.

Ring colour

One of the decisions you’ll have to make concerns the colour of the band. You might opt to go for rich yellow gold, which has a traditional feel. On the other hand, maybe you think the more contemporary look achieved with white gold or platinum would better suit your partner.

Subtle or head turning

Another issue you’ll have to bear in mind is whether your other half would prefer a subtle, understated ring or would like to have something bold that makes a real statement and turns heads. By taking a look around our selection of products, you’ll see there are plenty of styles to consider.

If you’re not sure what she’d prefer when it comes to rings for engagement, you can always take a look at the type of jewellery she already owns. In this way, you should be able to get a feel for the products she favours.

Our oval-cut stunner

One item that might really grab your attention is our oval-cut diamond engagement ring that’s entitled JEM75 on our online catalogue.

This stunning creation features a main gem that’s surrounded by smaller round brilliant cut diamonds. This emphasises the flowing nature of the oval diamond. Of course, we also offer an array of other gorgeous single and multi stone engagement rings for you to take your pick from.

As long as you try to match the ring to your partner’s tastes, you should really blow her away with your thoughtful and romantic purchase.
