WHAT IS A ENGAGEMENT RING?
An engagement ring is one that, according to Western customs, is worn to indicate your commitment to get married.
The ring is carried on the ring finger (which according to tradition contains the amoris vein). The hand in which it is traditionally worn depends on each region. But for hundreds of years, it is said that the amoral vein passes through the left ring finger that connects directly to the heart. In many European countries as well as in Catalonia and Valencia is traditionally carried on the left hand and the rest of Spain on the right.
Traditionally, it is offered by man as a gift to his girlfriend while or when she agrees to the marriage proposal. It represents a formal acceptance of the future commitment.
MATERIALS OF THE COMMITMENT RINGS
As for the materials of which the engagement ring is formed, it is recommended to choose between 18 kt gold or platinum for being the most valuable and appreciated metals. On the other hand the diamond will be the gem par excellence for being the most valuable, pure and symbol of the perfection of all the precious stones that exist and their value will vary according to purity, color weight and size.
It will always be advisable to use white gold over yellow because the diamond of good quality will look much better.
TYPES OF COMMITMENT RINGS
First of all it is essential to take into account the tastes and the way of being of the woman who will take it when choosing the most appropriate ring. We have to know if he likes the sober and simple or on the contrary he likes the most complex designs.
To help you we have made a selection of engagement rings that will help you decide depending on the personal tastes of your betrothed.
The Solitary Ring:
When it comes to an engagement ring, most people think of a brilliant solitaire.
This model is the most classic and traditional of engagement rings. It would consist of a ring with a single diamond generally set in claw for the diamond to be in the air and the light make the diamond shine with greater intensity. This will be the most classic and sober of all the rings of request.
Within this type of ring we would find different model variations.
1. The solitary ring set with 4 claws
A smaller diamond requires fewer claws. This is not to say that the solitary engagement ring has less appeal. It is not always the size that matters. Some women prefer a simple ring that can be worn every day.
The solitary ring set with 6 claws
The larger the gloss, the more claws are needed to hold it in place. The engagement ring set with 6 claws is more spectacular.
3. The princess cut
The solitary engagement ring with princess-cut diamonds is becoming more and more fashionable. The beautiful square shape of the cut princess looks modern and is a perfect alternative to the classic diamond with brilliant cut.
4. Solitaire Cross Ring
The solitaire cross ring is a design that the past few years has become more fashionable. It breaks with the traditional form of the classic ring in which the symmetry of the mount is straight.
5. Solitaire ring with side diamonds
This is another of the favorite choices of the current brides, as it fuses the classic form of the traditional solitary ring with the alliance of brilliant. This option makes the ring much more spectacular.
The inclusion of small diamonds increases the brightness of the whole mount. In addition to that, the central stone will look larger in contrast to the smaller diamonds.
This is a very current option of very frequent use. It is characterized by a frame composed of several bright ones of the same size around the arm of the ring.
The brilliant alliances can be complete, ie with diamonds around the entire ring, but the most common would be the half-alliance shape of diamonds, occupying the diamonds half the ring. This second option makes much more sense because only the diamonds that are usually seen will be set and its price will be much lower than the previous one because it is just half of diamonds, besides having the flexibility to be able to change it when desired.
The choice of the half-alliance of brilliants has been greatly extended due to its informality and less appearance to carry any day without losing the elegance and sobriety.
On the other hand the option of the diamond alliances will allow you to play with different types of diamond sizes or even combine them.
