It's a big decision: so how do you go about picking the right ring for you?
There are many things to think about when looking for a ring; it's often a significant investment, you will wear it for a long time - and it's important to get it right. If you are confused about the type of ring to go for, working with an experienced jeweller can help to clarify things for you.
“There are so many options, it can be really confusing to pick what you want!”
What do you really like? There is no 'right' answer
It can be really helpful to think about the things that you like; putting together a mood board or some other collection of images. This can help you to clarify your likes and dislikes, the colours of gemstones or styles of setting that you do or don't want. The more research you do before you meet with a jeweller, the further you can get in your first meeting with them. Pinterest is a great place to put your ideas together, so that they are all in the one place and can easily be added to.
Set yourself a budget
It can be really easy to get carried away; make sure you work out a budget and stick to it - a good designer should be able to work with your specifications to get something that fits both your aesthetic and your budget. It is, however, important to be realistic about what your budget will get you.
I love to work closely with people, so that they get exactly what they want from their piece. I find my clients really enjoy the process, and get a piece that much better reflects who they are, rather than buying 'off the peg' - drop us a line if you'd like to work with us to get your dream ring :)
