Wedding Rings: It’s the Special Day!

The styles and materials of wedding rings are as varied as the people who wear them. Many couples ring shopping together, or at minimum pre-shop together, to gain a sense of each other’s preferences. As such, identifying the 4 C’s can help you choose the right ring for your style and price range.

A wedding or an engagement ring can have whatever kind of stone you like, such as an emerald, ruby, sapphire, or topaz. However, diamond is the most popular gemstone. So, only time will tell whether or if this is appealing to the children. In the meantime, here’s everything you need to know about shopping for a wedding ring in today’s market.

Together for the Rest of Life

Many couples are shopping together now. Shopping for fine jewellery is a pleasurable experience that’s both ethical and highly individualised. As such, customers will like to check the rings they are considering before making one of the most important purchases of their lives. Meanwhile, two-thirds of couples collaborate on the purchase, changing from the surprise buying that Hollywood likes. There is also a rise in the popularity of going online. Couples walking hand-in-hand are common on Pinterest boards, but they’re not the only ones. The entire event was tailored to the team. However, a surprise proposal is still a favourite of many.

There Is a Lot of Star Power

According to many in the industry, everyone wanted an oval when Ryan Reynolds proposed to Blake Lively. An elegant design for those who like the glimmer of round diamonds but prefer something different (they’re also cheaper than round diamonds). Thus, a celebrity was created, and the aquamarine ring’s cool factor skyrocketed on her right hand. Thanks to social media, photos and videos of the two stones were extensively disseminated.

The Old Is the New Again

An antique diamond engagement ring appeals to some brides if they’re looking for quality work. It’s lovely to think that a stone was carved by candlelight and is one-of-a-kind. As such, those who appreciate the uniqueness of a one-of-a-kind piece appreciate the warm glow of an aged stone. They tend to be sentimental, recalling fondly the time they spent admiring an heirloom piece of jewellery on a grandma or other close family member. Getting more stone for your money might occasionally be a consideration here as well since larger stones are available for the same price as smaller modern cut ones.

A Reexamination of Reality Itself

Since the 19th century, synthetic gems have been produced. On the other hand, scientists have not produced a large-enough diamond for a long time.

It’s a process called CVD, and in a high-energy chamber, a single atom of carbon is placed. There are specialised gases in the chamber, which are then crystallised like snow on the seed as they interact with energy. Then, it is cut and polished like natural diamonds. And the result is a stone with the same qualities as a natural diamond but with distinctive crystal patterns that can be identified.

“Grown diamonds” is a word that was misleading since lab-grown diamonds are so similar to natural diamonds. They eventually overruled this decision, allowing synthetic manufacturers to sell their product as “genuine.”

The Price Is Reasonable

There is a 30-40 per cent price difference between synthetic and natural diamonds. Mined diamonds may have to lower their value to remain competitive if this difference widens as their ubiquity is accepted more widely. According to the market research firm VMI, the number of people willing to purchase a wedding ring with a chemical diamond has increased from 55% in 2016 to over 70% in 2018. There is no doubt that lab-created diamonds are more environmentally and economically friendly than natural diamonds. As such, it’s possible to increase the size of your diamond or save that for the wedding or vacation. 

A ring is the most intimate purchase you will ever make and is likely to be the most sentimental item you will ever wear; therefore, you must choose wisely.
