A GUIDE TO ENGAGEMENT RING SETTINGS FOR THE MODERN WOMAN

One of the toughest tasks there is for a man is choosing the engagement ring, and as we are talking about a considerable investment, it makes sense to put a lot of thought into the ring design. Some girls like fine antiques, while others prefer a more modern look, and with that in mind, here are a few engagement ring settings that go well with the modern look.

The Bezel Setting

This is a practical, yet stunning diamond setting, and if she is a hands-on girl who likes to roll up her sleeves and get preoccupied in tasks, the bevel setting is ideal. Check out some of the stunning engagement rings Sydney CBD shops are selling if you are residing within the area. There are also great shops that can be found with an online search, and with so many variations of engagement rings, there’s bound to be something just right. Aside from being very practical, the clean lines of the bevel setting makes it an ideal choice for the modern female, and as the stones are set flush with the top of the ring, it will not catch on fabric or other material. The metal used with a bevel setting is usually platinum, which is much stronger than gold or silver and is ideal for jewellery. 

The Channel Setting

Another very popular choice for the modern look, the channel setting secures the stones in a line, and it is a very durable design that is ideal for the active woman. It is worth considering having the ring custom made, and there are reputable jewellers that specialise in designing diamond engagement rings. The idea of having a ring that is truly unique is very appealing to the fashion-conscious girl, and she will really appreciate the fact that you took the time to have the ring made for her.

The Solitaire Setting

Although the solitaire setting is traditional, a single large diamond that is held in place with 4 or 5 prongs looks great, even with a modern trendy look. As the main stone is raised, there is a risk it might catch on clothing, but if you ask a custom jeweller to design and create the ring, he can ensure that the stone is reasonable flush and will not get snagged.

Choosing A Ring Setting That Goes With Her Lifestyle

If you are going to have the ring custom made, think about her lifestyle. If she’s the kind of girl that likes outdoor activities, then the durable bezel setting would make for an ideal setting, and with stones that are held soundly in place, she can wear the ring without the worry of losing diamonds.

There are many benefits to having an engagement ring made, and this is not as expensive as you might think. By designing the ring yourself, you can be sure that your beloved will like it. Some men prefer to ask their partner about the ring design, and if you are not planning a surprise proposal, why not involve your wife-to-be in the ring design process? At least, that way, you will know she likes the design.

    Amazing tips.
    Before my husband proposed me I remember showing him a lot of rings I would love to have. And finally I didn’t have the one I was dreaming about but he really wanted to pick me a diamond and I’m so happy with the one he picked.

    It’s such a difficult decision what ring to choose. A good quality is key but it’s not easy to find a good brand. All the jewellery looks so gorgeous!
