In years gone by it was customary for the man to buy the ring and surprise his bride to be with a ring that he has chosen. These days brides to be are not satisfied with a surprise ring and want to choose the engagement ring themselves.
Either way it is a big decision and many factors have to be taken into consideration. Obviously your budget is the most important thing to consider as this will determine the type of metal, the stone you will choose and size.
Even if your budget is small there are many beautiful rings that are stunning and affordable that are within reach.
So let's start with discussing the band and what precious metals are available.
The main metals are Gold, Silver and Platinum. recently Palladium has been added to the list and is becoming increasingly popular due to it's affordable price and the fact that it is hypo-allergenic. It has the appearance of Platinum.
Gold has always been the traditional choice with either yellow or white gold. Gold is measured in karats with 14 and 18 karats being the most popular. The drawbacks of gold are that it can bend very easily when worn and tends to lose its shine after a period of time.
Silver or platinum are extremely hard and does not bend as easily. Neither of these are as popular as gold is and typically costs more than gold as well. Platinum is popular because it generally never loses any of its shine nor does it tarnish in any way and is perfect for those that are allergic or sensitive to other metals. That's another reason why Palladium is becoming popular also.
The next choice is the stone which for most people would be a diamond. The diamond size is measured in karats also and obviously the more karats the more expensive. The diamond can also be cut into various shapes ranging from princess to marquee and is very much a personal choice.
If you are planning to pop the question to that special person in your life, you need the occasion to seem spontaneous, unique and not too played out or clichéd. Everyone thinks of the Opera house or a trip round Sydney Harbor on a cruise or small boat. Even if you try to be more adventurous and book a bridge climb to the top of the Harbor Bridge or Pylon Lookout you're still pretty much doing something that countless thousands of star-struck lovers have done before. You know this when the tour guide gives you a safety device for your engagement ring! Be creative and inventive, don't follow the crowd.
