Engagement rings weren’t really a thing up to the end of the 19th century. Before then, people didn’t really engage, at least not with a ring. However, since the 20th century, engagement with a ring became a true concept. Of course, there are many ways to ask someone to marry you, but presenting a ring is definitely a must. The engagement ring is an expression of love. This ring symbolizes the pledge of marrying your true love and eternal faithfulness. Naturally, you want the ring for this promise to be perfect. No wonder many men start sweating bullets when they ask themselves the question: “what is the perfect engagement ring?”. Luckily, we have the answer to this question…

The best engagement ring is…

Bummer. We can’t tell you exactly what ring suits you and your proposal best. Of course, we can easily say: the best ring has one big diamond, small brilliants around it and is finished with little baguettes. We like this kind of ring, but not everybody feels the same or can afford such a ring. The best engagement ring is the one you can afford and both you and your partner love. Not every jeweler has the courage to admit it, but this is the truth.

Different kind of engagement rings

At Royal Coster Diamonds, we have a diamond ring for every budget. Because, let’s be honest, an engagement ring should have a diamond. A solitaire ring with one wonderful beautifully cut brilliant is hard to top in simplicity and beauty. But a great alliance ring with multiple diamonds can be just as attractive.

A beautiful emerald cut diamond, in a solitaire setting, is a classic example of an engagement ring. The emerald is often the clearest diamond of all cuts anyway. Many celebrities and wealthy people want this kind of diamond to distinguish themselves from other people. Secretly they use this diamond ring also often to show off to their (online) followers. Another well-known and often picked design for a diamond engagement ring is one big diamond with small ones next or around it. This makes the stone in the middle look bigger and gives the whole more sparkle. Just like our Royal 201 collection.

The engagement ring that suits you

In short, the ideal engagement ring is the ring that you like and fits your taste, budget and look. Regardless of what someone else thinks about it. An engagement ring is really personal, just as personal as the marriage proposal itself. Do you need inspiration for finding the perfect ring?
