How to choose your perfect ring.
When it comes to choosing a ring, there are many things you can use to help you decide on what type of ring suits you best, from classic, vintage looks to more modern twists (literally). Whether you’re looking for some new jewellery for a specific outfit or occasion, or you’re just looking to add a new piece to your collection, we’ve put together a quick guide to help you find the perfect ring.
First, choose your colour of gemstone carefully.
Before you’ve selected a shape, cut or carat, it’s important to consider what gemstone you’d like for your ring, and whether or not you want multiple stones. If you don’t have a favourite stone, there are a couple of general rules you can follow to determine what matches you best. For example, lighter or fairer skin tones suit pink diamonds, sapphires, amethyst, alexandrite, pearls, blue topaz, aquamarine, moonstone alongside softer colours. Whereas darker, warmer skin tones suit gemstones such as yellow diamond, emerald, garnet, amber, ruby and prehnite.
Secondly, decide whether you suit gold or silver jewellery.
Another important aspect of your prospective jewellery is to work out whether gold or silver suits you best. Again, this really all depends on your skin tone. Silver jewellery generally looks better on cooler, lighter skin tones, whereas gold jewellery lends itself perfectly to accentuating the warmth of your skin. For a more in-depth look at whether gold or silver jewellery suits you better, take a look at our blog post.
Then, it's time to discover your favourite style.
This one’s really up to you! As with choosing your gemstone and selecting between gold and silver, there aren’t really any hard rules that you must follow - more like guidelines to help you find a piece you’ll love. But when it comes to style, it’s all down to personal preference. Whether you go for a vintage cut or a modern solitaire, the choice is yours.
