Looking for unique engagement rings is a stressful time, come let us help you find the perfect rings at Brundage Jewelers. We have an experienced staff that can create a diamond bridal ring for you if you cannot find that perfect piece. Brundage Jewelers has a wonderful collection of wedding rings to find your perfect engagement ring.
Metal – You will see that there are three metals in most wedding rings: yellow gold, white gold, and platinum. Yellow gold is the most popular of all with 14k and 18k gold used. White gold has the look of silver but retains the worth of gold, a choice she may prefer over yellow gold. Platinum is the most durable metal — and the most expensive – the perfect symbol of a marriage that will stand the test of time.
Center Stone – Many want a bridal ring with the stone in the center by itself while others favor the center stone with sidestones or with three stones. A diamond solitaire is cut in a variety of shapes including round, princess, emerald, asscher, marquise, oval, radiant, pear, heart and cushion. There are some people who consider personality traits that supposedly match each shape, but if you are simply looking for the best investment go with a round brilliant ring and you’ll not be disappointed.
Other Considerations – You will hear about the 4Cs of diamond characteristics (cut, carat, color, clarity), with cut already mentioned. The carat represents the size of the diamond, while color is its natural body color with D,E, and F grades colorless (and the most rare) all the way down to Z, which is light yellow in color. Clarity describes a diamonds purity or the elements which give each diamond its unique look, kind of like a birthmark. You can find quite a few diamonds which are not at the very top of the scale that are still quite beautiful and which look virtually the same as the most expensive grade of diamond, but for less money. Of course, your personal budget must be considered when purchasing a ring. Conventional wisdom suggests that you spend at least two weeks of your salary on a diamond engagement ring, but at Brundage Jewelers, we have beautiful rings available that start at $250. Weigh her needs with your wallet and you’ll find the perfect diamond engagement ring for a couple soon to be married. Finally, it can be mind-boggling deciding which diamond is best – we have staff members that can make your diamond education a fast learn!
