Being in a relationship is an amazing experience. While love is a universal emotion, no two relationships are ever the same. When it comes to expressing your commitment to your special someone, do it in a way that is as unique as the bond you both share.
Couple rings are usually a symbol of love, worn to show off to the world that you are a couple in love. They are worn on engagements, weddings, Valentine’s day or some couples even wear them while dating.
Weddings and engagements are superb occasions which publicly declare one’s commitment to his/her partner. Wedding and engagement bands hold a lot of value to a couple who are in love as they are a symbol of their promise, their eternal bonding and never ending love towards each other.
Couple rings are a modern concept. Couple rings often represent the step between dating and engagement and are worn to show your commitment to one another, however their significance often varies from couple to couple.
Even if you don’t plan to get married, couple rings represent a statement of equality within a relationship, representing your love and devotion to one another. Here are some helpful tips to choose stunning diamond couple’s ring designs.
Consider Her Style
The first step in choosing a custom diamond ring your partner will love is taking into account her individual style. Look at their other jewelry items. Are the pieces mostly made of white gold or yellow gold? Does he or she prefer vintage jewelry designs or modern designs?
Decide on Your Ring Shape
When choosing a custom ring, one of the main steps is to choose the shape of your diamond. The main consideration for ring shape is personal preference. From beautiful heart-shaped ring designs to oval styles, there are shapes for every personality. Some prefer a classic look like this round brilliant solitaire ring or a cushion cut with a pave band. Others prefer something more unique like a pear shaped ring.
If size appearance is a consideration, select a shape that appears larger, like the stone in the Emerald cut diamond ring. The Emerald cut showcases size better than other diamonds with the same carat weight.
The shape you choose will also help dictate your ring setting style. Most importantly, ensure your diamond is secure in the setting, and won’t be prone to chipping, like when the tip of a heart-shaped diamond isn’t protected by a prong.
Know the Diamond Basics
The quality and beauty of each diamond can differ dramatically. Having a deep understanding of the four C’s – Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat will help you make the right decision on a diamond.
Cut: Cut is the number one deciding factor of a diamond’s beauty. Choose an Excellent or Ideal cut diamond to ensure your stone offers the most brilliance and fire.
Color: Choose diamond in the nearly colorless range of G-I. To the naked eye, the diamond will appear just as colorless as a diamond in the D-F range but will cost far less.
Clarity: A VS1 or VS2 Clarity usually offers the best value for what can be seen with the naked eye. Inclusions and blemishes are not noticeable at these grades.
Carat: Once you have determined your grades for the other three C’s, find the largest carat that still fits within your budget.
Choose the Right Metal
Choose the color that complements your partner’s style the best. If she tends to wear silver jewelry, choose white gold, like this round brilliant halo ring. If she prefers more color, consider a rose gold ring.
Pick the Perfect Setting
From the superb elegance of a solitaire design to the ornate features of a vintage ring, you can find settings to match any personality. If your partner is someone who leads an active lifestyle or has a hands-on job, consider a bezel setting because the diamond won’t protrude as much as with other styles.
Adding to the appeal of diamond couple ring designs is the fact that they allow you to get creative. While diamond size and number of diamonds are main considerations when choosing engagement and wedding rings, your couple custom rings are a great way to immerse yourself in a diamond ring design that’s a little more experimental.
