For some brides and grooms, the concern of the quality and price of the engagement ring is the only important things. That is understandable as engagement rings are not always cheap; in fact, in the grand scheme of things, none of them are. However, put aside the price and the quality of the stone just for a moment and consider the style. Yes, rings have styles, they’re not just a fancy stone and precious metal. Certain ring styles are very historical, some are deeply ingrained in the culture of a nation, many are in fact inspired by previous kingdoms, and some are purely a style unto their own. It depends on what kind of personality you have, and the overall outlook on life you have which will help you determine the kind of ring that will be suitable for you. At the end of the day, you should take this into account because you will be wearing the ring for a very long time.
The pink or ruby gem
Red is the color of passion, anger, rage, beauty, and lust. It’s by far the most noticeable color in any kind of jewelry let alone an engagement ring. It’s also a color of dominance and power, so if you want to flaunt your wealth or daring approach to life, then a ruby gemstone is best for you. Bear in mind that ruby stones are best kept in a basic shape such as a square or rectangle. This is because you want the boldness of the red shade to stand out, and the more you cut the stone down to a smaller shape, the less light will be captured inside it. It’s not a diamond so already, there is a fight to keep as much light inside the stone. The precious metal surrounding the stone should also be gold or rose gold. Silver is too dull but the yellowish hue of the gold and pink rose tint of rose gold goes well with a ruby red.
A powerful declaration
Diamonds are the top of the draw when it comes to rings, no matter what the occasion or reason is. Consider one of these engagement rings called the Reverse Crescent. The diamond is 2 carats on its own and it’s in the design of a reverse crescent moon. The spiral is intertwining inside, making it a very neatly cut and shrinking design. On the surface it’s a square but ventures down into a pyramid bottom. It’s called a princess cut diamond and tapers from the bottom up. The crescent silhouette allows light into the center and bounce around to show the delicate structure. The rest of the ring is also covered in 1-carat diamonds. All of this is seated on premium platinum. This is quite clearly a softer but more elegant choice of ring, and the diamond is balancing both power and beauty.
These two exotic ring designs and styles are going to be for two different personalities. If you want something that is more about lust, power and daring then choose a square ruby engagement ring. If you want something that’s a little more delicate but higher quality, then choose the princess cut diamond reverse crescent style.
