Style Guide

Style is so personal and your engagement ring should reflect your style. Whether designing the ring together as a couple or solo as a surprise. Use our engagement ring style guide for tips when choosing a ring.

Surprise Her With a Ring She'll Love

After years of experience helping couples choose the perfect engagement ring we have learned a thing or two about women’s tastes and personal preferences — all women have unique tastes!

Read on for tips on how you can find just the right ring for her.

How To Find Her Ring Style

1) Spy on Her Style

This involves a little reconnaissance planning on your part. What kind of jewellery does she wear — vintage, classic or contemporary? What colour of jewellery does she usually wear? (For example, white, yellow or two-tone?)

2) Ask Her Friends and Family

Ask her friends or family to casually find out about her preferences for diamond shape and ring style.
Or just come by our studio with her friends or family to help you pick out the perfect ring for her!

3) Ask Her

It might blow your cover but it’s a pretty straightforward bet you’ll get the right ring on the first time attempt. You could also try shopping together — over 60% of our clients choose to pick out their engagement ring together.

4) Ask Us

With years of experience under our belt, we can probably take an educated guess at what ring will be right for your beloved. Our expert consultants will ask you a few questions about your girlfriend’s preferences (you’ll have to know a few of those!) and make appropriate recommendations. This is our business and we’ve been known to make more than a few women happy in our day.

What If She Doesn’t Like the Ring I Picked?

No Problem! On all of our solitaire engagement rings, we give you 30 days from the day of pickup to change the style however you want. If you choose to exchange for a more expensive ring, we’ll only charge you the difference. Even on custom rings, we’ll always work with you to figure something out. We won’t leave you stranded so no worries. That wasn’t so hard was it?

How to Choose the Right Metal

There are many factors you should consider when choosing the type of metal for your engagement or wedding ring.
Here are some of the factors you should consider when choosing a metal for your ring.

Her Colour Preference

Does she prefer yellow, white, rose or a variation of tri-coloured tones? For yellow, the only choice available is gold. Depending on the karat purity however, the shade of yellow can vary.

For a pink colour, the only available option is rose gold. Rose-coloured alloys are added to the gold to give it a beautiful and blushing pink colour. If she prefers a white look, there are a few different options available. These include White Gold, Palladium or Platinum.

Take a look at the jewellery she wears. What colour is it? The vast majority of the rings we do are in white gold, palladium, or platinum. But in the end, it is about her personal preference that matters. Take notice.

How Active is Her Lifestyle?

If she is very active and hard on her possessions, you may want to lean towards a more scratch-resistant metal like white gold. Platinum is more durable however it does not hold a polish as well and is more likely to scratch.

Cost Differences

Platinum is the most expensive option. On average, you can expect to pay 2 to 2.5 times more for platinum than for the same piece made in white gold. Palladium will be similar in price as white gold.

Does She Have Any Allergies?

If she does, you will have to go with palladium or platinum because these metals are 95% pure and are hypoallergenic. If you are not sure you can always ask her. If she already wears white gold jewellery such as earrings, she likely will have no allergy issues. If there is sensitivity to gold, the allergic response is often avoided the higher the gold karat, 14K or 18K gold usually does the trick. Speak to one of our consultants if this is of any concern to you.
