Which Engagement Ring Should I Get?

Which Engagement Ring Should I Get?

At Springer's Jewelers, we understand that finding the perfect engagement ring is no small task. Given the myriad of styles, stones, and settings available, it's imperative to make an informed decision that reflects both sentiment and quality. With a storied 150-year history and a commitment to our coastal New England community, we're here to help guide you through this pivotal decision.

Understanding the 4 C's

  • Cut: The cut of a diamond profoundly influences its sparkle. A well-cut diamond reflects light beautifully.
  • Color: Diamonds come in a spectrum of colors. Understanding the color scale can help in selecting the perfect shade.
  • Clarity: All diamonds have imperfections. Clarity determines how visible these are.
  • Carat: Reflecting the weight of the diamond, this affects both size and, subsequently, cost.

Choose a Metal for the Band

Springer's Jewelers offers a remarkable range of metals to complement any diamond:

  • Gold: Available in yellow, white, and rose - each carries a unique allure.
  • Platinum: Known for its strength and distinct appearance.

Popular Engagement Ring Styles

Engagement rings come in a myriad of styles. Among our fine jewelry selection, here are some beloved choices:

  • Solitaire: A classic, timeless choice.
  • Halo: A modern, radiant style surrounded by smaller diamonds.
  • Three-stone: Representing past, present, and future.
  • Vintage: These rings carry a touch of history and bespoke elegance.
  • Pavé and Channel: Intricately designed with side stones for added brilliance.

Alternative Stones

Venturing beyond diamonds can be both unique and meaningful:

  • Sapphires, Rubies, Emeralds: These colorful gems each have their symbolism.
  • Moissanite: Comparable to diamonds in hardness and offers a brilliant sparkle.

Understanding Ring Settings

The setting can transform the ring's overall look:

  • Prong: Offers maximum light to the diamond.
  • Bezel: Modern and protective, encircling the stone.
  • Tension: A floating stone creates a dramatic effect.
  • Channel: Sleek grooves hold the stone securely.

Determining Ring Size

We recognize the importance of a perfect fit:

  • Asking discreetly: There are innovative ways to deduce ring size without giving away the surprise.
  • Using another ring: A current ring can serve as a size guide.
  • Professional sizing: Our experts are always on hand to ensure an accurate fit.

Setting a Budget

Budgeting is an essential part of the process. While the love and sentiment behind the ring are paramount, understanding the investment can make the selection process smoother. Springer's Jewelers offers options for every budget, always prioritizing quality and authenticity.
