3 simple steps
Take a little time to think about her life and style.
Think about the type of girl she is – sporty, outdoorsy, delicate, princessy, demure, understated or centre of attention?
Think about the jewellery she already has and enjoys wearing.
With this in mind, most engagement ring designs fall into the following categories… which would suit her best?
Less is more. Simply set diamonds, nothing more, nothing less.
Dainty and delicate scattered with diamonds. Classic designs inspired by old-fashioned romance.
These unique designs are engagement rings with a twist. Designer rings that stand out from the crowd.
A shot of colour. Because life would be boring in monochrome.
Read most jewellery blogs and this can be a minefield of facts, stats and confusion.
In a nutshell, diamonds come in a range of qualities and are graded as such via the 4 Cs: cut, colour, clarity and carat weight.*
At Simon Pure, we handpick all our diamonds, insisting on a high quality in cut, colour and clarity. For the final C, carat weight will always be down to the weight of the individual stone. Simple.
When it comes to diamonds, the most important decision is the shape. Options include:
Round – brilliant cut
Square- princess cut
Fancy cut- including marquise, oval, Asher, baguette
