Know More about Engagement Rings


Marriage proposal is a big step that goes with certain rules. By the time the proposal is made, certain etiquette is already involved. Knowing about engagement ring etiquette is also part of respecting the process of engagement which is eventually respecting the relationship you're in.

Ring etiquette should not be taken too lightly for the reason that respecting an engagement entails respecting the ring, how it should be bought, and how it should be worn. The engagement band etiquette talks straight to the point and is mostly reasonable but it would be good to learn about it beforehand.

Who should be wearing the Ring?

According to tradition, it is only the woman who wears an engagement ring. But, an increasing number of men also prefer to wear one too. It is not bad to for the two of you to wear engagement rings since it is also a great opportunity to establish your deepening your commitment with each other. However, there might be some people who will think that you two have already passed the altar. Therefore, the choice would really depend on you.

To What Finger Should It Be Worn?

Most of the engaged persons prefer their left ring finger to wear their engagement rings. However, based on tradition, engagement etiquette obligates the woman to wear the ring on the right hand. But the person's choice is really the deciding factor. If you choose to wear the ring on your left hand because it's more comfortable, then don't hesitate. If both the couple decides to wear engagement rings, it is more ideal for them to wear the ring on the right hand.

Who is Obliged to Pay?

When it comes to deciding who pays for the ring, according to the traditional etiquette, it is simply the man who pays for the ring. But nowadays, the couple might decide to split the cost of the ring. This scenario usually happens in couples who have been living together and shares everyday expenditures. However, it is still a pleasant gesture for a man to pay for the ring, regardless of how practical dividing the cost of the engagement ring may be.

What If the Engagement Broke Off?

Engagements are made with a promise of lifetime partnership. A likelihood of broken engagement is still present. A divorce in the future can also happen. This situation gets complicated as heirloom rings become an issue.

Basing on engagement etiquette, the woman is obliged to return the ring back to the giver. There is no law that requires it; however, decisions can be made regarding rings in congruence with prenuptial agreements.

There are US states that provide laws regarding engagement ring etiquette. Other states, however, just require the ring to be returned to the giver. But some states dictate that the woman can keep her wedding rings canada as long as it is the man who breaks the engagement first.

Sapphire Engagement Rings

Things to Consider Before Buying Engagement Rings


  1. Set your budget

The first thing you should do when choosing your sapphire engagement rings is to set your budget as two rings can look almost exactly the same, but the difference on their prices can be astronomical so to make life easier, it is wise to set your budget and try to find your engagement ring within your budget. The common practice for an engagement ring is said to be 2 months of your salary. Of course it's entirely up to you if you want to follow it, but knowing your budget is definitely a good start.

  1. Mount of black diamond engagement rings

There are basically two types of mountings for a ring; solitaire mounting and mounting with side stones.

Solitaire Mounting- it is the most popular mounting when it comes to engagement rings. Solitaire mounting is the one with only one stone centered on a ring so that the center stone becomes the focus of the ring.

Side Stones Mounting- a bigger stone on the center of the ring accompanied by smaller stones on the both sides of the ring. The most popular side stone mountings are 3 stone and 5 stone.

  1. Settings

Setting is the way a stone is attached to the ring (semi mount). There are three common settings; prongs setting, bezel sets and tension setting.

Prongs setting- prongs are also known as crawls for securing the stone in place. Prongs settings are widely used on rings as this setting has the least contact area with the stone so that it shows most of the area of a stone, including the sides of a stone, as compare to other settings.

Bezel Setting- It is a way of securing a stone by encircling the stone with metal. Since the sides of the stone are surrounded by metal so only the top surface of the stone is showing.

Tension Setting- the stone is held in place merely by the pressure exerted on both ends of the shank making the stone appearing to be floating in mid-air. It is the firmest setting of all and it is considered a modern style of setting.

  1. Shank Type

Shank is the part of a ring that fits around a finger. It is the single largest component of an engagement ring where it draws most attention besides the center stone, thus it's the place where you show the individuality of your ring.

Knife Shank- A knife-edge shank has a two slanted sides that meet at a point on top. Depending on the design, "sharper" or "softer" knife-edge shanks can be found.

Cathedral Shank- it is a type of shank that the shoulder of a shank connects to the head in an upward slope.

Pave Shank- it is called the pave shank when the shank of the ring is covered with many small diamonds.

Channel Shank- a channel is carved into the shank to form a groove where it holds the diamonds. Split Shank- The shank splits in the middle from the head of a ring into 2 separate bands.

  1. Metal of a Ring

There are a lot of choices for the metals for your ring. As the style goes, you can consider white or non-white. Although white seems to be the dominate color for engagement rings these days, but colored metal such as yellow gold or rose color are good alternatives to add personal touch to your engagement ring.

White- Platinum is my personal choice if white metal is your cup of tea. Platinum is not only a hard metal which you can rely on when it comes to hold your precious stone in place on a ring, but it also holds its color indefinitely without having to re-plate it. White gold is another popular choice for engagement rings, but it is not as hard as platinum and it needs to be re-plated from time to time.

Colored Gold- colored gold is usually either yellow or rose. The color of gold is determined by the percentage of mixer of copper and silver. Yellow gold is the result of equal amount of copper and silver. The more silver there is the whiter the gold alloy is and on the other hand copper gives the yellowish color.
