Why choose Shining Diamonds
How to choose an engagement ring?
Before you start to look for the perfect engagement ring, there are a few important factors you should consider. Your partner's personal style, job, ring size or lifestyle choices could all have a bearing on the style of ring she wants – for example, if your partner has more of a ‘hands on’ job, they may prefer a simple and subtle ring choice rather than a bold, daring design.
Once you have considered your loved one’s requirements, then you can start to decide on the metal and setting of the ring. Choose from a range of metal bands, with styles and diamond shapes ranging from halo to princess cut and pear. When you shop with Shining Diamonds, there really is something to suit everyone. For a little help choosing the perfect style for you, view our Engagement Ring Buying Guide or browse our selection online.
We can also offer a free sample service where we deliver a sample of your chosen pieces straight to your door. Our delivery services cover all of the UK.

What are the 4C's of Diamond Quality?
The 4C's of Diamond Quality are Cut, Colour, Clarity and Carat:
- Cut: the diamond cut determines the diamonds sparkle. Popular examples include round cut, cushion cut and princess cut diamonds.
- Colour: this refers to the hue of the diamond and is a D-Z grading ranging from colourless to a yellow hue.
- Clarity grade: this marks how many internal 'inclusions' or external 'blemishes' the diamond has, which can affect the appearance of the stone.
- Carat: this refers to the weight of the stone where a single carat weighs 200 milligrams.
How do I find my partner's ring size?
