1) Take your time when choosing your perfect ring! Remember your engagement and wedding ring is for life and you want to get it right.
2) Decide on your favorite metal type such as Yellow Gold, Rose Gold, White Gold or Platinum. You may want to mix the colors up like having a white Gold engagement ring and a Rose Gold wedding band, or stick to the same color for both. Or you may like a more contemporary metal such as Tungsten Carbide which is scratch resistant. 3) Decide on if you want a centre stone or stones. Rings with precious stones going all the way round are called ‘Eternity Bands’ these are very popular as wedding rings and also as wedding anniversary rings. If you have a practical job and use your hands a lot it may not be practical to wear an eternity band, so you may choose a ring with stones half way, or a third of the way round.
4) Decide on what type of stone or stones you would like, i.e.. White Diamond/Black Diamond, Sapphire, Emerald, Ruby or chose a semi-precious stone such as Amethyst, Garnet or Peridot etc. Did you know that sapphires come in many different colors other than blue, including pink, yellow, green and orange? Cottage Jewelry can source great quality precious and semi-precious stones for you to choose from.
5) Decide on your favorite cut of stone. There are various cuts of stone to choose from and the most popular cuts are Round Brilliant Cut, Emerald, Oval and Cushion.
