Featuring a stunning selection from renowned designers, Weston Jewelers ensures you’ll discover the ideal ring for your bride-to-be. Dive into our expert advice and learn how to craft a dream engagement ring that truly reflects your unique bond.

Choose a Carat Size and Diamond Shape

Diamonds of different carat size and shape significantly contribute to the innate beauty of a ring. Deciding on the center stone of the engagement ring truly sets the tone for the overall appearance of the ring. Choosing a one carat or two carat diamond can look much different depending on what shape you do pick. A round diamond or an emerald diamond are both gorgeous choices yet have contrasting styles. The love and consideration that goes into buying an engagement ring should reflect the aesthetic of your partner and the love that is shared.

Select a Setting

When selecting an engagement ring setting, consider the timeless elegance of a solitaire ring, which beautifully showcases a single, stunning diamond, allowing its brilliance to take center stage. For those seeking extra sparkle, a halo setting features a circle of smaller diamonds surrounding the center stone, enhancing its size and radiance. Side stone rings offer a luxurious touch with diamonds or gemstones lining the band, adding depth and dimension. The three-stone ring setting, symbolizing your past, present, and future together, is perfect for a romantic gesture. Each setting at Weston Jewelers is designed to help you find the perfect ring for proposing to your partner.

Consider Precious Metals

The precious metal that you choose is a big decision, and some people have very specific preferences regarding the metals they wear on the regular. Yellow gold exudes timeless elegance and tradition, offering a warm, classic look that enhances any engagement ring design. White gold presents a modern, sophisticated appearance with its bright, silvery sheen, perfect for those who appreciate a sleek and polished aesthetic. Rose gold stands out with its romantic blush hue, adding a touch of contemporary charm and uniqueness. Platinum, renowned for its durability and luxurious finish, provides an enduring and exquisite choice that will last a lifetime. Each of these precious metals brings its own distinct beauty and qualities, ensuring you find the perfect setting for your engagement ring.

Explore Colorful Alternatives to Diamonds 

Considering colorful diamond alternatives like sapphires, rubies, or moissanite can offer a unique statement for your love while still providing durability and beauty. These gemstones are not only stunning, but also highly durable, making them excellent choices for everyday wear. Opting for these alternatives allows you to create a unique and vibrant ring that stands out, and may reflect your love’s personality or your love. .
