All you need to know about an engagement ring


Purchasing an engagement ring is a significant step! Choosing a ring that perfectly reflects your feelings, personality, and your couple's style can be both daunting and incredibly exciting. We will guide you throughout the process of selecting the perfect engagement ring, from choosing the gemstones to selecting the ideal metal for the band, along with many other details. Our diamond experts are here to provide you with a wealth of advice and tips. Let's embark on a journey to find your ideal symbol of love, exploring everything you need to know about an engagement ring.


  • Gemstone type 
  • Start by considering the type of precious gemstone you prefer. While diamond is a classic choice, feel free to explore other options such as sapphire, ruby, or emerald.

  • Understanding the 4Cs
  • Start by choosing the gemstone and type of metal that best match your partner's preferences, while keeping in mind the 4Cs: carat, cut, clarity, and color, to ensure you get the best quality-to-price ratio.

    Carat: Carat measures the weight of a diamond.

    Cut: Cut assesses the proportions and dimensions of a diamond, including the balance and brilliance of its facets.

    Clarity: Clarity assesses the small imperfections present in a diamond.

    Color: The color of a diamond corresponds to its degree of coloration. The less color it has, the higher the quality.

  • Metal type 
  • The choice of metal also holds crucial importance, with a range of options including white gold, yellow gold, rose gold, silver, and platinum.

  • Shape and setting style
  • The shape of the stone and the stone setting contribute to the overall style and appearance of the ring. The shape refers to the cut of the central diamond, such as oval, princess, round, etc. The setting is how the stone is placed. There are several styles, including classic, modern, vintage-inspired, and more.

  • Prongs setting 
  • Prongs, often referred to as claw settings, serve as the delicate metal components responsible for firmly securing gemstones or diamonds in position. Beyond their primary function of providing stability, prongs play a pivotal role in elevating the overall aesthetic appeal of the stone.

  • Lifestyle
  • Keep in mind your partner's lifestyle, as the ring should not only be beautiful but also practical for everyday wear.



  • Ring Size
  • Don't forget to consider the ring size. By choosing the right size, you ensure it will fit your partner perfectly, avoiding any potential adjustments. To learn how to find the perfect ring size, check out our guide: [insert the link here]."


  • There's also the custom option
  • If the engagement ring of your dreams isn't available, you always have the option to design a custom ring. This option is often more affordable than you might think, and it's truly worth considering. To learn about the custom process, you can check out our guide: [insert the link here] 


  • Warranties, jewelry insurance, and certificate 
  • Once you've found the perfect ring, we recommend protecting this valuable investment. Insurance options are available to protect your jewelry. Insurance can protect your piece against theft or accidental loss. Additionally, we offer a certificate of authenticity for any diamond with a size equal to or greater than 1.00 carat. Diamonds with a carat weight less than 1.00 do not come with a certificate of authenticity, but you can request one for a fee of $200. Furthermore, we provide a complimentary 5-year warranty against manufacturing defects on all Proud Diamond engagement rings and wedding bands.

    In the end, considering these factors will help you select an engagement ring that beautifully symbolizes and holds meaning for your love story. We invite you to explore our stunning collection of engagement rings!
