There are several things you need to consider when choosing an engagement ring. Firstly, you need to consider your partner's:

  • Ring size
  • Personal style
  • Profession
  • Hobbies

All of these factors will impact your decision. For example, if your partner has a 'hands-on' role or leads a very active lifestyle, they may prefer a subtle solitaire design over an extravagant halo engagement ring.

Once you've considered your partner's lifestyle, you can begin to focus on specific design features. When choosing your ring, you can individually select the style, setting and metal to create the perfect piece for your partner. So, whether you prefer an emerald or oval engagement ring - we have something for everyone at Shining Diamonds.

What should I consider when buying an engagement ring?

When shopping for an engagement ring, you'll need to consider:

  • The style of the ring
  • The type of diamond
  • The shape of the diamond
  • The metal of the band
  • Your budget

When choosing the diamond itself, you should consider the 4 C's of Diamond Quality. All of our diamond engagement rings are independently certified, so you'll have all the information you need about the size and condition of your diamond.

What are lab diamond engagement rings?

Lab diamond engagement rings are designed with lab grown diamonds instead of natural diamonds. They share the same chemical and physical properties as natural diamonds, however they offer a far more ethical and affordable alternative.

How to know your partner's ring size?

We recommend asking close family or friends to subtly find out your partner's ring size. Alternatively, you could borrow a ring they already own and bring it to the jewellers.

For more ideas, read our guide on how to discover your partners ring size.

What are the different cuts of engagement rings?

At Shining Diamonds, we offer a wide range of diamond engagement ring cuts. From the classic round, princess, emerald and oval cuts to the more unique marquise, cushion and pear shaped diamonds.

For more information, read our detailed guide on the different types of diamond cut for engagement rings.

How much should you spend on an engagement ring?

Traditionally, the price of an engagement ring should be equivalent to three months of your salary. However, depending on your disposable income and the style of ring you're looking to buy, your budget could be significantly more or less.
