2.    You want birthstones around the diamond

Do you know her birthday? Then, a brilliant idea for crafting the engagement ring is with birthstones. There are 12 birthstones mainly, but for each zodiac, there is a collection of birthstones you can choose from, for making the engagement ring. The question you need to ask the jeweler is about center stones.

Refer to this book on birthstones, if you want to learn more.

3.    You want the ring in Gold

Choosing the metal is a decision you need to make early. Do you want the ring in rose, yellow or white color? In yellow, you can choose from 10K, 14K, 18K and 22K gold, the same as rose and white gold. As the karat purity goes down, the price of the precious metal also goes down.

Platinum has one purity level and price.

4.    You want the diamond to look suspended in air

What you’re talking about when you’re thinking of the diamonds suspended in between the metal claw on the ring is a setting called Invisible tension setting. It requires high pressure, so ask the jeweler if they can do tension setting for your ring.

5.    You want names on the Ring

Engraving the ring is a good idea, but we suggest you do after you give the ring. Often, an engraved engagement ring is denied refunds and return warranties.

If you’re good for it, you need to decide what the engraving should say. Do you want your names? Date you met? Date of your wedding? Initials? Your favorite quote and so on.

6.    You want a diamond that does not change color

When you want a clear or white diamond that does not change color under different lights, you are referring to fluoresce.

7.    You want to return the diamond and buy a new one, if need be
