When you are ready to buy your unique engagement rings, define your budget, determine the style she'll enjoy most & learn to pick a diamond. Traditional wisdom says that you can use about 2 months worth of salary for a diamond engagement ring. Bear in mind that your fiance will wear her engagement ring for the rest of her life. It is not uncommon that couple will choose diamond engagement rings because diamonds stand for purity and strenght. However, sapphires, rubies & other precious stones can make a very distinctive unique engagement ring. Technology, more precisely the internet, can help you find thousands of wedding ring styles that you can take advantage of. You could have the option to buy just the ring mounting and design your own diamond ring or design your own ring with your family's heirloom gemstones.

Discover the perfect style for her new engagement ring

If you want to find out what type of engagement ring your girlfriend likes & appreciates more, you will have to do some research work. If the two of you have never discussed ring preferences, a good way to find out about hers is to ask advice to her close friends and her relatives. Talk with your girlfriend's favourite jeweller will steer you up in the right direction. If your girlfriend has just yellow gold jewelry, an engagement ring with the same characteristics seems to be perfect option. However, if she prefers silver, white gold or platinum jewellery, it will be probably a good idea to give her a platinum, white gold unique engagement ring.

Contemporary brides who look for simple yet classic looks may also want to have one of the most popular unique engagement rings:

• A single diamond ring: When you are not sure about her style, this type of rings will help you. Your partner can even choose the frame at a later stage.

• A single diamond ring with decoration: These rings' key characteristic is a main stone, usually a diamond, surrounded by small gemstones such as diamonds, emeralds or rubies. The ring carat weight includes the weight of all stones altogether and not just that of the main stone.

• Three stones diamond rings: These unique diamond engagement rings are also called past-present-future rings or rings trilogy and have three bright round cut diamonds representing the past, the present and the future of your partnership.

You can also buy a wedding band to match the engagement ring of your partner. Stressing the unlimited number of combinations of stones and styles, bridal sets generally comprise a wedding band and an engagement ring. If your fiancé prefers antique jewelry, you may consider a classic engagement ring and its respective wedding band as the right combination.

Choosing the diamond you love

When you buy a diamond engagement ring, think of choosing quality over size & choose the most beautiful selection of unique engagement rings you can afford. The jewellery industry uses 4 Cs to evaluate each diamond's quality: Cut, carat, clarity & color.

Watch the cut and diamond shape

A diamond's cut determines how well a diamond reflects light to demonstrate all of its brightness. A standard grading report describes cut by the diamond contour & pattern of location, aka cutting style. The forms vary from traditional round to hearts, pears, emeralds & more. Choose a shape that emphasizes the person's taste.

Choosing the diamond carat weight

Diamond size is measured by carat weight. Prices go up whenever the carat weight increases. By choosing a slightly lighter diamond weight, say up to 0.05 less, you can save considerable money & still afford to give your future wife a dazzling stone.

Look for Diamond clarity

The majority of diamonds have small flaws called inclusions which are often unseen to the naked eye. Vendors normally describe the clarity of a diamond using the industry's standard rating scale from "flawless" (FI) to the "imperfect, flaws visible to the naked eye" (I1, I2, I3).

Determine what colour of diamond you want

Although most diamonds seem white at simple sight, they all have a certain degree of yellow traces. Colorless diamonds D, E & F generally are more valueable than almost colourless diamonds (scale G, H & J). But the "tinted diamonds", alias Z + diamonds can from time to time cost more than colourless diamonds of same carat weight. Coloured diamonds are popular amongst celebrities who like to wear this type of rings. They come in a considerable array of colors, including deep yellow, pink, green, blue & black.

Avoid conflict diamonds

Conflict diamonds, diamonds sold to support wars, come chiefly from Angola, Sierra Leone & the Democratic Republic of Congo. Perhaps this topic should be important to you & if it does you might want to ask your jeweller to authenticate the origin of his/her diamonds, this way you avoid buying a conflict diamond.
