Engagement Rings UK – The Right Ring Will Speak To You Engagement rings UK carry a lot of meaning. Unlike so many other pieces of jewellery, which are perfectly fine just being pretty, engagement rings have to say a million things without saying a word. They have to say “I’ll love you forever.” and “You mean the world to me.” “I think you are beautiful.” and so many other things. That is a lot of pressure for a little ring! That is why it is so important that you spend the time to find just the right ring. This might mean looking at hundreds of engagement rings UK, but when you find the right one, you will know. It will […]

Unusual Engagement Rings
Posted on July 27, 2011 by Admin

Unusual Engagement Rings Some women picture a traditional round-cut solitaire diamond engagement ring whenever they think of that magical moment when their true love will slip a ring upon their finger and ask for their hand in marriage.

An Engagement Ring is an Act of Love
Posted on July 26, 2011 by Admin

An Engagement Ring is an Act of Love Your engagement ring is probably the most important piece of jewellery you will ever buy. It may be little, but it is a substantial financial investment, and even more of an emotional investment. An engagement ring is not something you buy because you passed it in a window and thought it was pretty. It is not something you can buy for yourself. It must be bought after time and consideration, it is an act of love, and it must come as a gift. This little ring has to last a lifetime, it has to sparkle like the day it was made, and it has to represent the beauty of your love, the […]

Posted on July 22, 2011 by Admin

Solitaire Engagement Rings are a Simplistic Beauty Solitaire engagement rings have a simplistic beauty about them that no other style of ring can possess. They are beautiful in a singular way like the sun or the moon. These things do not need any additions or distractions to make them beautiful. They can do it all by themselves.

More Than Symbols: Engagement Rings
Posted on July 20, 2011 by Admin

More Than Symbols: Engagement Rings They are “just” symbols of love, these engagement rings, are they not? And a symbol needn’t be anything more than a cigar band or circus trinket to have meaning. Yet humans have long sought to use the most beautiful and precious elements on earth to make these symbols. Why? A symbol, since it stands in for something else, is usually made to somehow reflect that intangible, absent item by its very form and nature. Here we are representing the most sublime emotion known to man: Love. Engagement rings are perfect to represent that emotion. A ring is without beginning – and more importantly, without end. Like love, it continues on, never stopping. Even death does […]

Cheap Engagement Rings
Posted on July 18, 2011 by Admin

Cheap Engagement Rings Sometimes a person chooses an inexpensive engagement ring – “cheap,” if you will. After all, rings are only symbols of love and commitment. And as symbols, they convey that love whether expensive or inexpensive. The degree of love isn’t reflected in the price of the ring; it’s not as if an inexpensive ring means the couple is less in love, less devoted, or less joyful than a couple choosing a more expensive ring. It just means that for reasons of their own, the happy couple has chosen to consider cheap engagement rings. Sometimes, couples are saving for a house they will purchase together, a luxury car, or a long honeymoon to exotic locales. They wish to devote […]

A Rare Beauty: Platinum Engagement Rings
Posted on July 15, 2011 by Admin

A Rare Beauty: Platinum Engagement Rings Silvery-white and very rare, platinum is one of the most popular choices of precious metals for forming rings. In some shops and areas, platinum engagement rings outsell the traditional and perennial choice of yellow gold. In fact, platinum is especially suited for jewellery fabrication, as it can be wrought into extremely intricate designs that stay crisp and beautiful. Harder than gold and silver, platinum designs don’t easily deform, and rings don’t dent easily in ordinary use. Because of its strength, even gold and white gold rings usually have the actual gemstone held by platinum prongs, bezels, or claws. A glorious, subtle grey-silver-white in colour, platinum is often enhanced with a thin layer of rhodium, […]

Cool Elegance in White Gold Engagement Rings
Posted on July 15, 2011 by Admin

Cool Elegance in White Gold Engagement Rings At first it may sound like a contraction in terms: White gold. When we think of gold, usually a beautifully shiny yellow hue comes to mind. How can there be white gold? White gold is a precious metal, just as natural yellow gold is. And 18 carat white gold is just as valuable and desirable as its more well-known cousin yellow gold. White gold engagement rings are made by combining 75% pure yellow gold with 25% other “white” metals such as silver and palladium, just as 18k yellow gold is made by mixing 75% pure yellow gold with other metals such as copper and zinc. Both an 18k white gold engagement ring and […]

A Modern Classic: The Princess Cut Diamond
Posted on July 14, 2011 by Admin

A Modern Classic: The Princess Cut Diamond Engagement Ring “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” Brides-to-be can get a head-start on that traditional wedding-day good-luck rhyme by choosing the elegant and modern princess cut diamond for their engagement ring. Round brilliant-cut diamonds are beloved for their fiery natures, while emerald-cut diamonds play up the lustre of the stones. But some women wanted a cut to combine the best of both worlds, and jewellers answered this demand: The princess cut was created to dazzling acclaim in the 1960s, as it combines an eye-catching shape with the fire of the brilliant cut. In fact, the princess cut is a modification of that most famous of all diamond cuts, the round […]

Designer Engagement Rings: The Marriage of Artistry with Experience and Technique Choosing an engagement ring is usually a once-in-a-lifetime event. And it can be costly, and not only in terms of money, but in the outlay of emotion and effort. Of course, both halves of the couple want the ring to be “perfect” and beautiful, since it is a tangible symbol of their love. And the quest to get the “best” ring can be stressful at times. After all, couples are in the love business, not the jewellery business. Many couples solve the anxiety-causing aspects of this purchase by deciding to choose from amongst designer engagement rings. Bespoke rings can be wonderful, but with designer engagement rings, a couple simply […]

Heartfelt Visions Turned into Reality: Bespoke Engagement Rings “I am spoken for.” That is a phrase that tells others that someone is already devoted to another and has entered into the beginning of a life together. Similarly, “bespoke” carries a meaning of being arranged or reserved beforehand, and also carries the meaning of being “custom made.” Thus, a bespoke ring is one that is created especially for an occasion or person – in this case, bespoke engagement rings. Many gorgeous diamond engagement rings are available online and in shops, but some couples choose to make the engagement ring even more special by designing it themselves. Others, knowing they want something exclusive and personalized, work with knowledgeable and friendly jewellers – […]

Emerald Cut Engagement Rings
Posted on July 13, 2011 by Admin

Emerald Cut Engagement Rings When a couple’s taste demands an engagement ring that is different, impressive, and stunning, think of an emerald cut diamond. With its rectangular shape featuring stepped sides that play up the clarity and lustre of the diamond, emerald cut engagement rings are impossible not to notice as they almost glow upon the finger. Unlike brilliant cuts, such as the brilliant round and the princess cut which were created to enhance the diamond’s “fire” as light is thrown from facet to facet and bring to mind “brilliancy” – the emerald cut has a more subtle beauty and a different aim. This cut speaks of pure refinement. The emerald cut makes a strong style statement that is never […]

Engagement Rings Come From the Heart Engagement rings may be small pieces of jewellery, but they carry a huge amount of pressure on their proverbial shoulders.

Engagement Ring: Star of the Proposal
Posted on July 8, 2011 by Admin

Engagement Ring: Star of the Proposal Men and women seem to have completely different aspects on proposals. Little girls fantasize about how the man of their dreams will propose, and little boys, well, do not. It dos not seem to change when they are all grown up, either. But a tip to the man who is considering a proposal – there is only one thing more important than the way you propose, and that is the engagement ring you propose with. Think of the proposal as a movie, and the engagement ring is the star of the show. The movie can be wonderful with a lackluster star, but what most audiences take away from the show is the performance of […]
