ENGAGEMENT RINGS FAQ
1. How Do I Find The Right Ring For My Partner?
Finding the perfect fit for your sweetheart can often feel intimidating, but with a few general pointers in mind you can narrow down your search. Take cues from their existing sense of style, ask friends and family members, and if possible, even ask them directly. Remember, ultimately the ring you choose is a symbol of your love, and that is what matters most.
2. How Much Should I Spend?
While there is a common myth that states you should spend approximately 3 months salary on an engagement ring, the truth is, there is no right number. Each couple has different financial needs, as well as preferences where jewellery is concerned. Ultimately, only you know what you are comfortable spending, and our team is here to help you find the right ring in the right price range!
3. How Do I Make Sure the Ring Fits?
If you’re unsure of your partner’s ring size prior to purchasing your engagement ring, it can be a challenge to get an absolutely perfect fit. We recommend seeing if you can “borrow” a piece of their existing jewellery to find out their approximate size, or inquiring to see if anyone close to them know the exact size they need. If all else fails, resizing after the fact is usually an easy process and should be no cause for additional stress.

4. What Are the “4 C’s”
The 4Cs refer to Carat (size), Color, Clarity and Cut, each of which are the industry-grade standard by which every diamond is evaluated. Higher quality diamonds are more radiant and produce the telltale brilliance that is preferred by most buyers.
7. What Metal Should I Choose For the Band?
Choosing the metal for your engagement ring is typically a matter of personal preference and practicality. While all shades of gold are by far the most popular option, those who need bands that can stand up to more intense day to day wear (those who work with their hands, for example, titanium or platinum may be a better fit.
