Follow our guide to buying the perfect engagement ring.
If you’re looking to pop the big question or perhaps you’re a hopeful girlfriend guiding your other half, either way finding the perfect engagement ring is an exciting experience.
Engagements rings come in all shapes and sizes. The best starting point is figuring out a budget that suits you. From there, decide on the diamond colour and shape, before moving onto carat size and clarity.
The most common diamond shapes and cut are round, princess, oval, marquise, pear, cushion, emerald, asscher, radiant and heart.
Next up, decide on the metal. There are a plethora of different metal options, although it all comes down to your fiancé-to-be’s personal preference.
If she wears lots of gold, you might want to keep to that metal family. However, if her favourite everyday jewellery tends to be silver, platinum would be a great choice.
The most popular options are usually white gold, platinum, yellow gold, rose gold and silver.
If you are after something a little more unique, check in with the stores to see if they can customise the ring with bespoke engraving. Tiffany’s & Co. and Cartier in Mall of the Emirates both offer this service. You can also engrave your initials or even a small love note to personalise your ring.
Most importantly, make sure you know the correct ring size. Most jewellery boutiques in the shopping malls offer a complementary ring sizing service.
