How to choose the right ring?

When you visit a jewellery store, you are overwhelmed by the options available to you- diamond rings, platinum wedding jewellery, diamond solitaires, eternity wedding bands, titanium wedding bands, tungsten wedding bands and even Celtic engagement rings. Several metals and gemstones are used to make engagement and wedding jewellery. Earlier, gold and silver were the more common metals.

Again, gold is also available in two colours- white and yellow. Men generally wear sturdy rings made of platinum and white gold. For women, gold and silver are the best choice.

Gemstones

Once you have decided the structure of the ring, you have to decide which gemstone would the ring flaunt. You can choose diamonds, emerald, ruby and other gemstones. Diamonds are available in many colours such as pink, yellow, green and blue. Colourless diamonds are the most expensive. The cut and clarity of the diamond decide its cost.

Occasion

Heart-shaped rings are best for occasions such as Valentine's day and anniversaries. Wedding rings should be elegant and stylish. Do not choose a ring, which is too flashy.
