Engagement Guide


Finding the perfect engagement ring can be difficult, even in the best of times. With so much information to digest, which diamond is best? How big should the diamond be? Which cut? What is the best diamond clarity? These are just a few questions that need to be answered. This engagement ring guide is designed to condense the information you need.

By breaking the anatomy of a great classical engagement ring into two distinct parts—a diamond and a setting - you can quickly focus on selecting a ring. To get the best value, look for an engagement ring setting that she will love, and then spend the remainder of your budget on a beautiful cut and certified diamond.
