Guide To Buying An Engagement Ring.


An engagement ring is a symbol of a marriage proposal, and therefore, of the beginning of your new life. It indicates that you are loved, and the person presenting the engagement ring desires to officialize the relationship.


Engagement rings can be of any type, but the most widely preferred type is the diamond engagement rings Hollywood. Indeed, there are no real rules about buying or wearing a diamond engagement ring Hollywood – you go with what you are comfortable with. At times, cultures and traditions determine certain aspects. For instance, people belonging to western cultures usually wear an engagement ring on the third finger of their left hand, while other cultures consider the left hand unlucky, and therefore prefer wearing an engagement ring on the right. At Gray and Sons, we have a wide variety of diamond engagement rings Hollywood, worthy of your special day. 


Engagement Ring VS Wedding Ring. 

As the names suggest, engagement rings are presented while proposing for marriage, while wedding rings are exchanged during the actual wedding ceremony. Commonly, engagement rings are more ostentatious and prominent than wedding rings. 

If you are about to present wedding rings, you might be wondering where to wear the engagement ring during the wedding celebration. If you normally wear the engagement ring on the left hand, it is usual practice to shift it to the right temporarily, while you put on the wedding ring on your left hand. 


How Much Should An Engagement Ring Cost?

Elders often preach that an engagement ring should cost around three times your monthly salary or wage. Even though most lessons preached by older people are timeless and valuable, this one is an exception. 

The truth is that there is no ‘right’ amount to spend on an engagement ring; just like we mentioned at the start of the blog, you go with an amount that you are comfortable with. The most important thing is that the amount you spend on your ring should be aligned with your budget, needs, and preferences. 


Popular Metals For Engagement Rings:

Even though diamond engagement rings Hollywood still lead the way, some other popular metals are used to design engagement rings. One of those is platinum (people also go for white-gold, if they are looking for a platinum appearance but at reduced costs). 

In the recent past, though, rose gold rings have also observed significant growth and popularity. This was a popular metal during the latter half of the nineteenth century. Today, it is acknowledged for its romantic appearance and aura and fits particularly well with vintage-inspired styles of rings. 


How to Choose the Right Diamond:

While answering this question, the 4Cs are your best friends. These stand for carat, cut, clarity, and color. Even though you should master all four of these, it is important to pay particular attention to the ‘cut’. If the diamond has not been cut correctly, it will affect the overall beauty, style, and appearance of the engagement ring.
