Finding the perfect engagement ring is a significant and momentous step in life, so when you set out on one of the biggest adventures life has to offer, don’t be surprised if you find yourself at your computer, googling it – you're not alone. 

At first, buying an engagement ring can seem like a daunting task. With so many things to consider, how do you know where to start? Finding the right engagement ring can be a beautiful journey and we’re here to make it easy for you. So much so that we’ve gathered every aspect of engagement ring knowledge from our team of experts and put together an Engagement Ring Buying Guide

Engagement Ring in Workshop

The engagement ring buying guide will take you through a step by step process to help you further understand engagement rings. It’ll explain metal types, the four c’s of diamonds (cut, clarity, colour and carat), types of gemstones, styles of rings, and much more. Plus it’s even broken up into easy to read sections.

By the end of it, you’ll pretty much be a pro on the subject of not only engagement rings but precious metals, gemstones and diamonds too. What more could you ask for?! - apart from your partner saying yes to your proposal, of course.

We can work with you and help you find – or create - the perfect engagement ring, wherever you may be based. Whether you’re sitting in a farmhouse in Central Otago or a café in Britomart, we can help craft your dream ring.

After you’ve read the Engagement Ring Buying Guide and know more about the whole process, and maybe even an idea of what you want – and what your partner needs ;) - get in contact with us so you can put your feet up and relax. Let us do the rest.
