What terms do you need to know before you buy an engagement ring?


Going shopping for an engagement ring can be a confusing and stressful process. Not only is the ring something that you want your fiancé to love, it also has to represent your feelings for them and your relationship. Furthermore, engagement rings can be a costly purchase, so you want to ensure that everything is perfect before making such a big decision.

To help you understand what terms you need to know before buying an engagement ring, Angelic Diamonds, experts in diamond jewellery, have put together this in-depth guide:

1. The different styles

The style of engagement ring you choose determines how it will look on the finger. There are eight main styles:

• Solitaire — The simplest style, a solitaire ring features a single stone in the centre of the band.
• Shoulder — This style of ring features a channel of diamonds running down each side (shoulder) of the band, it usually has a larger diamond in the centre too.
• Halo — This is a popular style; a centre diamond is framed with smaller diamonds which makes the centre stone look bigger.
• Three-stone — Said to symbolise the couple’s past, present and future, a three-stone band is often made up of a large diamond which is framed by a smaller diamond on each side.
• Cluster — For this style of ring, smaller diamonds are grouped together to give the appearance of one big diamond.
• Tension — In a tension set ring, the tension of the band keeps the diamond in its place, it often creates a bold and modern look.
• Bezel — In a bezel ring, a thin piece of metal holds the ring in place. You can choose from full bezel ring settings where the diamond is fully circled or partial bezel settings that only cover part of the diamond.
• Vintage — Inspired by antique styles, a vintage engagement ring is designed to look like it’s from centuries ago.

2. The different shapes

Secondly, you will need to consider the shape of ring that you want. 

• Round — This is the most popular cut of diamond and considered to be the most brilliant by many. The stone is cut into a cone shape which allows light to enter the stone.
• Princess — This cut looks as though it’s a square or rectangle but is actually a pyramid shape, this shape is again known for its brilliance. 
• Emerald — An Emerald cut diamond is rectangular with rounded corners, designed to highlight the gem’s shine.
• Oval — Cut in a similar way to the round diamond, an Oval cut offers more of a contemporary feel.
• Pear — Also known as the teardrop, the Pear cut diamond can be worn either pointing towards or away from the hand.
• Marquise — Cut with an elongated shape and sharp ends, the Marquise diamond gives off a majestic appearance.
• Cushion — Also referred to as a pillow cut diamond, the Cushion shaped diamond can be square or rectangular with larger facets and rounded corners.
• Asscher — Cut in a similar way to an Emerald diamond, an Asscher cut diamond has an octagonal shape and more brilliance.
• Heart — The Heart cut has similar brilliance to the Round cut diamond but is more eye-catching because of its shape, guaranteed to turn heads.
• Radiant — This type of cut has a square shape and rounded corners, similar to the Emerald cut. However, a radiant cut diamond has more brilliance and sparkle. 

3. Understanding the 4Cs

If you have chosen a diamond engagement ring, you will need to know a few ‘diamond specific’ terms. There are four main aspects of the diamond that determines its appearance and cost: 

• Cut — The cut of a diamond refers to its symmetry, proportions and polish. It shouldn’t be confused with the shape of the diamond.
• Clarity — This refers to the diamond’s internal features, or ‘inclusions’. Generally speaking, the more inclusions that a ring has, the less appealing it is.
• Colour — Although most diamonds look colourless to the naked eye, if you look closely you might be able to see that there are subtle yellow and brown tones that separate them. Less expensive diamonds are usually the ones with the most of these tones.
• Carat weight — Carat is the unit that diamonds are weighed in. Note that this is different to a Karat which is a measurement of purity in gold. 

4. Additional terms you may need to know

• Culet — This is the point at the bottom of the diamond, the size and angle of this can affect the diamond’s worth.
• Brilliance — This refers to the appearance of white light in the stone. Light passing through the stone produces this and it’s expertly measured with a Brilliance-Scope.
• Prong — This is a type of setting, also known as the claw. It uses less metal to hold the stone and therefore more light can pass through the diamond.
• Channel — Another setting, a channel secures diamonds in place and sits them flush with the band of the ring.
• Pavé — A pavé setting sets groups of small gems in place and makes the ring appear to sparkle all the way round the band.
