The five steps to choosing an Engagement Ring
An engagement ring is one of the most important gems in your life and in that of your partner. So before choosing, from Midwest Jewellery we give you some recommendations.
- Plan ahead. (We recommend 2 weeks in advance)
- Discover the size of your fiancée’s ring
- Select a type of ring
- Choose the materials
- Make a creative proposal
There are mainly two ring options, one is a jewel that links the diamonds inside and the other, the solitaire, is a ring that links a single diamond. The choice will depend on the taste of each one and the budget.
The first option links diamonds inside and can be complete or half alliance. The choice will depend on the tastes and needs you have. Diamonds can be chosen in different sizes, but the most usual one is the brilliant cut (round).
As for the material of the frame, it can also vary in color, design and noble metal. Currently, white gold is the most common material in engagement rings, although in earlier times it was platinum, in family jewels it is normal to find this material as the basis of alliances. A great advantage of platinum is that the color is unalterable over time, while other materials such as white gold to be mixed with other metals to give more hardness, over time may vary a little color; it is no problem you just have to dedicate a little more attention.
The Solitaire, the classic engagement ring that does not disappoint
The second option is the solitaire, a ring of noble material to choose with a central diamond. In this case, the diamond can be of different sizes. From brilliant cut (round), marquise or navette cut, poire cut, emerald cut, cushion, heart to princess cut. The mount can be made in the noble material in gold or platinum.

Our recommendation is to choose quality before quantity, a white and pure diamond with a size of good proportions makes the jewel have a different meaning. The brightness and color will be visible to the naked eye. Quality diamonds shine without special lights like those of a jewelry store.
