Put a Ring on It! – Why Engagement Rings Mark the Beginning of a Glorious Journey

If you wish to pop the question, you need to do it right. A proposal symbolizes a commitment to your better half and promises the coming of many wonderful things. An engagement ring is the essence of a proposal, so you need to pick one she won’t be able to refuse! Let’s have a look at some breathtaking styles trending this season.

The Diamond

Let’s begin with the most obvious. Diamonds have been the most popular choice of ring doers for decades now, and these sparkling rocks aren’t scheduled to go out of fashion anytime soon. For all the old-school charmers out there, nothing says ‘Marry Me’ like a diamond-studded proposal. Do it the traditional way with a splendid solitaire or cushion-, emerald-, pear- or oval-cut ring. However, if you’re looking for a fresher feel to kick-start your marital voyage, try a flower-shaped or rose gold ring to showcase your love. Whether you go classy or trendy, you can’t go wrong with a diamond!

The Halo ring

Halo rings are an upcoming trend that’s here to stay. They’re basically made up of a center stone surrounded by a circle (or ‘halo’) of small diamonds. The most popular among these rings are sapphire-encrusted halo rings, made famous by the Duchess of Cambridge. They are a stunning alternative to diamond rings and are an opportunity to truly mix and match your taste for fancy gems. Another very popular fad of the new year is to combine the halo and cushion-cut styles for a truly regal-looking ornament. Yet another variation is the double halo ring, which has two circles of diamonds surrounding the centre stone. These styles are a really good choice for those who wish for a dazzling proposal weapon that’ll also go easy on the pocket.

Rose gold

Rose gold rings haven’t reached they’re peak in popularity yet, but they’re definitely gaining favor among brides-to-be. This lovely pink metal is attaining fame for adding an antique element and unexpected twist to contemporary-styled rings to make them truly exquisite. It can be paired with pinkish hue diamonds; it’s bound to make your fiancé-to-be swoon! However, for a truly memorable combination to earn you some serious brownie points with the better half, we suggest you pair rose gold with the pretty morganite, a pinkish gem (literally) of a beryl. Rest assured that these timeless drops of beauty are sure to remain in vogue for a long, long time.


Antique rings are for women who appreciate the intricate things in life. If your partner is one with the times yet traditional, if she’s individualistic yet likes to be pampered, if she believes more is less and minimal is classy, antique rings are your stairway to heaven! Not only are original antique rings show stoppers in every right, they usually have a fascinating story attached to them for added appeal. They’re financially viable yet classy options, a truly amazing gift for women who have an appreciation for history.

There’s so much mixing and matching and searching and combining you can do to make your proposal ring unique. Engagements are a prelude to your partner of what your future will be like, so show her you care in the best way you possibly can. Be it modest or extravagant, an engagement ring is a thing of value because of the love invested in it. So in the wise words of the Beatles, always, always remember that money can’t buy you love! Happy shopping.


Wedding Rings

Wedding rings today are a billion dollar sentiment of love, but no one can really say for sure when this age old tradition actually started. Some believe that the oldest recorded exchange of wedding rings comes from ancient Egypt, about 4800 years ago.

The circle is the symbol of eternity, and to give a woman a ring signifies never-ending and immortal love. According to  a tradition believed to have been derived from the Romans, the wedding ring is worn on the left hand ring finger because there was thought to be a vein in the finger, referred to as the ‘Vena Amoris’ or the ‘Vein of Love’ said to be directly connected to the heart.
