Palladium not only feels and looks amazing, but its versatility makes it a jeweller's dream. Stephen Wilkinson, jewellery designer for The Wedding Ring Specialist believes that palladium is going to explode onto the fine jewellery market. \"With high gold and platinum prices, palladium is now being considered as a viable alternative for wedding rings. It doesn't require rhodium plating like white gold and weighs much less than platinum, making it a good alternative for mens wide heavy wedding rings.\"Palladium jewellery continues to gain in popularity, with it's brightness and lustre is transforming it into the metal of choice for both mens's and women's wedding rings.
It's the shape of the diamond when you look at it from above. Now, there is a type of shape that we call round. Now the round shaped diamonds are the most popular because these are the ones with the most sparkle. There's the heart shaped diamond - this is the most popular with lovers. Then there's the pear shaped diamond; it either looks like a pear or like a tear. This is mostly popular for earrings, less for diamond rings. The oval diamonds; these are good for people who have short fingers because when you have an oval shaped diamond ring it makes your fingers look longer.
Figure out what she thinks the value of her ring should be and make sure the ring is worth more than that. If she will be satisfied with a $2,000 ring, then make sure you get at least a $2,500 ring. It is always good to go above and beyond when it comes to her diamond engagement ring. This does not mean you have to spend $500 more than what she expects the value to be, that is up to you.
If you are having trouble choosing a wedding ring and feel like you have tried everything, consider a coloured stone. Many women are satisfied with colour diamonds as equally as they are regular diamonds. Consider purchasing one that is your birthstone if you have that option. Just remember it still needs to compliment or go with the engagement ring.
Forget the 2 months salary rule right now. That was just intelligent marketing on the part of DeBeers about 15 years ago. If you make $4,000 a month, then you are talking about spending $8,000 on a diamond engagement ring. Most people that make $4,000 a month cannot afford to spend two months of their salary on a ring. Maybe getting a ring that is worth $8,000 would be a good idea if you can get a great deal and spend around $3,000. Trust me this can be done and we will talk about that a bit in step 5.
