First, we look at some of the things you will want to consider when you select a ring. We will then look at a specific ring and take a look at each of its components.
The Most important Piece You’ll Ever Buy
Getting married is a huge decision and can be one of the most important things you do in your life. It is no small decision to ask another person to bind themselves to you for the rest of your life. Popping the question alone is enough to make many men shiver with a bit of intimidation, but then comes finding a ring for that special someone. You are choosing a ring that someone else will wear every day for the rest of their lives, that is a pretty big deal. And, chances are, it is also one of the most expensive pieces of jewelry you will ever buy.
An engagement ring is pretty important. We think that something like the tear-drop diamond solitaire we feature here is a great choice for women of pretty much any style. You want the ring you choose to be something that she will like and that is a good representation of your relationship and how you feel about your bride-to-be. This is, of course, easier said than done. So let’s take a look at some of the things that you will want to consider as you select an engagement ring.
How to Choose an Engagement Ring
The first thing you will want to do when you start looking for an engagement ring is to take a moment to take a deep breath and calm yourself a little bit. Of course, this is intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be a headache-inducing experience. Before you even begin shopping, it is important to set a budget. This will help narrow down your search and save wasted time. Besides, the last thing you want is to find the perfect ring, only to find out that it is out of your price range. Next, you will want to think about her preferences. Is there a type of metal she prefers? Do you know what kind of gemstone cuts she likes or doesn’t like? This information is incredibly helpful.
Now, you will want to consider her lifestyle. Is she an active person? Does she use her hands a lot for her job or hobbies? If so, this will be an important consideration. You don’t want to choose something that is going to interfere with her daily activities. For those who are super active, something simpler and less obtrusive is the way to go.
Avoid Trendy Styles
We know that it can be really tempting to choose a trendy ring for your bride-to-be. This can be especially true if she is a fashion-forward style maven. Though it is tempting, we recommend avoiding these styles. Think about trends. These are styles and fashions that can come and go incredibly quickly. Your marriage is supposed to be forever. The last thing you want is to get her an engagement ring that might be out of fashion before the wedding event takes place. In that instance, you are either stuck with a ring that isn’t fashionable or you have to spend even more money on something new.
It is for these reasons that we recommend sticking to more classic styles. The classics are those styles that are timeless – they defy trends. Think about the little black dress. This is something that always looks great, regardless of current trends. There are pieces of jewelry that have these qualities as well. The tear-drop diamond solitaire we feature here is a really great example of this. It looks great with pretty much anything you can think to pair it with.
Tear-drop Diamond Solitaire
A tear-drop diamond ring is an elegant and beautiful diamond cut. You may also see jewelers refer to this as a pear-cut diamond. If you hear this phrase, just know it is the same thing as a tear-drop diamond. This is a stunning and unique diamond that has one rounded end and one end that comes to a point. This gives the ring a lovely asymmetry which is quite beautiful.
One of the great things about this diamond cut is that it looks great in many different styles. You can easily use this cut in something with vintage looks, but you can also use it in something more modern and trendy.
The unique thing about this cut of diamond is that it is a blending of two cuts. It is a blending of a round brilliant-cut diamond and a marquise-cut diamond. Marquis cuts typically have two points, making them look a bit like a football. By blending this shape with the round brilliant cut, you get the one round end and the one end that comes to a point.
And, you also get the extra brilliance people love from brilliant-cut diamonds.
Baguette Diamond Accents
One of the things we really love about this tear-drop diamond solitaire ring is that it also features baguette-cut diamond accents. Remember when we talked about how important it is to stick to timeless and classic styles? Just like the solitaire, the classic accent stones are another great choice for those who want to stick to the classics. But you also get a more unique look than you would with a solitaire on its own.
The accent stones we see here are in the baguette cut. This cut takes its name from a long loaf of French bread. What this means is that the stone has a long and rectangular shape. This is the perfect cut for those who are wanting an Art Deco or flapper-era ring. But this cut also looks great with a wide range of other styles as well.
A newer cut saw its introduction in the 1920s. People love the clean lines that this cut has to offer. The rectangular shape can give a slimming and elongating effect to fingers and necks, depending on the type of jewelry it will feature in. This is a great cut to show off the quality of a stone. It has fewer facets than many other cuts, which means you can see the depth and clarity of the stone.
When choosing an engagement ring, the metal you choose is going to be another big choice. Gold is a common and popular metal for engagement rings because of its looks and durability. While traditional yellow gold is quite popular, there are a lot of people who aren’t fans of the yellow buttery hue. For those, white gold is a great choice. White gold offers that cool silvery hue but with a versatility that is much stronger than a lesser metal like silver. This metal was actually developed as a more affordable alternative to platinum.
Platinum is incredibly rare and thus comes with a really high price tag. White gold gives you that cool hue that people love about platinum but with a much more affordable price tag. Over time, white gold has gained a following all on its own and continues to be a favorite of many people. Like all gold for use in jewelry, white gold is an alloy or a blend of metals. But rather than blending pure gold with copper or another yellow metal, it is blended with zinc, chromium, or other silvery metals. This allows it to take on that silvery hue, but have the durability of a gold alloy.
Quality and Durability
When you choose an engagement ring, we have focused a lot on how to choose the right look, but this isn’t the only thing that is important. Quality is also important. When it comes to something like gold or diamonds, you are going to be able to tell if they are of decent quality or not. Quality diamonds are clear and flawless, and quality gold will have an even texture and sheen. But the quality of the materials is important for more reasons than just how it looks. Numerous times throughout the course of this piece, we have discussed the fact that this is a ring that she is supposed to wear for the rest of her life. If the ring is made from subpar materials, it simply isn’t going to last that long.
In addition to being made from high-grade materials, you also want to choose a ring that is well-constructed. It needs to be able to go where she goes. The last thing she wants is to have to constantly worry about damaging her ring in the course of her daily life. The tear-drop diamond solitaire we feature here is made with the highest-quality materials and meets the highest standards of quality for design and construction.
Suitable for Daily Wear
Obviously, your bride-to-be is going to want to look like a princess on her wedding day, but she is also going to want a ring that she can wear when she’s in her sweatpants. The ring is for life, not just for the celebration of the joining of two lives. With this in mind, you are going to want to choose something that fits her style, but that isn’t too over-the-top for daily wear. Just like it can be a mistake to choose something trendy, it can also be a mistake to choose something that is super ornate. The ring has to be something she can easily live with.
That means it is going to need to be suitable for taking the kids to the park, just as much as it is suitable for wearing with a formal dress. This is another reason we like the classics because they work with so many different styles. The tear-drop diamond solitaire we feature here is a classic design that looks amazing with formal attire. However, it is also a piece that will look stunning with a simple pair of jeans and a sweater.
We know that being tasked with choosing an engagement ring can be a pretty scary endeavor. You are choosing something that someone else will wear every day for the rest of their lives. Lucky for you, we have tons of experience in helping couples from all walks of life choose rings for their taste, style, and budget. Here, we break this information down into a short guide that we hope helps make the process at least a little bit easier. First, we look at some of the things you will want to consider when you select an engagement ring. We discuss why we feel that classic styles are the best choice for this purpose.
Then, we take a look at a tear-drop diamond solitaire ring. We look at the two cuts of diamonds that make up this stunning and timeless ring. After taking a closer look at this ring, we then discuss the importance of the quality of the materials in the ring as well as the quality of the construction of the ring. It has to be something that she can wear every day without fear of damage or that it will interfere with her daily life.
