1. Ready to wear or custom made?

Firstly, you need to choose between our range of ready to wear engagement rings, or whether you’d like to create a custom one.

Many couples choose to design their own ring, even though this often takes longer and requires more effort than simply purchasing a ready-made ring.

 Custom made engagement rings are more meaningful than ready-made rings because they offer you the opportunity for personalised expression.

2. The setting

If you’ve chosen to create a custom ring, then next up is choosing a setting – setting refers to how gemstones are set, or mounted, into a metal band. 

There are several different engagement ring settings, but the most popular one is the prong setting. 

The type of setting you choose can depend on a number of things. Some of it is purely down to personal choice, whether you want a ring with a single diamond or several stones. However, some consideration should be taken as to how a ring will cope with your lifestyle – some types of setting are more suited to a busy active lifestyle than others.

3. The diamond

Once you’ve selected a setting that you like, it’s time to choose a diamond.

Before you choose your diamond cut, you need to consider whether you want a natural diamond or lab-grown diamond. A popular option for an engagement ring stone, lab-grown diamonds are perfect for couple’s looking for a more affordable option.

Next, it’s time to review the diamond cuts available and choose the one that you like best.

The diamond cuts available on our site are: round, cushion, asscher, emerald, marquise, heart, oval, princess, pear and radiant.

4. The finger size

Now that you have a setting and diamond, it’s time to put in the finger size.

It’s important that you get this right as if the engagement ring is not the right size, then there’s a chance it might not slide onto their finger – alternatively, if it’s too big then it could fall off when they’re not paying attention.

While you can get the ring resized after purchase, knowing a general ring size can help the entire proposal go that little bit smoother.

Tactics to help you find your partners ring size include borrowing a piece of their jewellery, tracing one of their rings and enlisting the help of some friends.

5. The payment page

When you reach the payment page, all you need to do is confirm your order – and you’re all done!
