As a romantic partner, you’d probably think it’s essential to find the most jaw-dropping diamond ring to complete the dreamiest proposal. But many who are on the hunt for their ideal engagement ring don’t realise, choosing the perfect ring is more than matching it to her unique personality.

Practically speaking, you’ve got to make sure that your significant other’s diamond ring is suitable for her daily wear. So use these valuable tips to craft not just a gorgeous and unique diamond ring, but one that she can carry around effortlessly!

Let her stay true to her lifestyle – get her a ring that matches it

Before a guy proposes with the chosen diamond ring, one key question to ask is: what kind of lifestyle does my partner lead? So while you may know her ideal ring design, do also consider if all the other details, right down to the ring band, are crafted just for her as well.

There isn’t a need to compromise on that beautiful paved setting she’s been eyeing on, but by first, considering the width of her ring band!

A thin band for that sophisticated look

Thin engagement bands have been gaining popularity for that sleek look it offers her. These classic thin bands are most suitable if your partner loves to stack her engagement band with other stylish rings – let her revel in the chic look stacking offers!

To preserve this precious thin ring band, remind your partner that jewellery care for her delicate engagement ring is crucial. However, if your partner holds a very active or busy lifestyle, an ultra-thin band is probably not very suitable if she doesn’t intend to remove her rings even at home or when sleeping.

A thicker band to endure wear and tear

If your partner is always on the go, holding a job that either involves a lot of lifting or perhaps regular wearing of latex gloves in the medical sector, consider a thicker ring band that is sturdier and requires less maintenance. The last thing you want is for her perfect ring to get a scratch or two.

Consider a thicker ring band that is about 5mm, with a low set centre stone that is more tightly secured. Each time she puts on or takes off her gloves, she won’t need to worry about the possibility of the diamonds or the prongs being caught on her gloves, pulling them out of alignment. Not only is this thicker band more suited to her lifestyle, but it’ll also stand out on her hand with a sturdy feel!

Choose the perfect diamond solitaire for her needs

To prolong that sparkle on her finger, you’d need to ensure that her dazzling diamond is well-set and suited to your partner’s needs. Perhaps, you might be considering a cathedral setting that allows the beautiful diamond to sit high and be more apparent. But, if your partner’s active lifestyle is demanding, the long prongs of the cathedral setting could catch onto something and be bent. This means, unfortunately, the need for trips to the jewellery store to tighten the loose diamond or worse, the possibility of the diamond dropping out of the setting.

Instead, why not go for a bezel setting that will still allow the diamond to stand out while being secured! The bezel setting consists of a protective metal rim around the centre stone and its profile sits the diamond at a relatively lower height. As such, when she’s constantly moving, she won’t have to worry about her brilliant diamond chipping or catching onto surfaces. Of course, her diamond also won’t sparkle any less: the sparkle is created when light enters the top of the stone and wonderfully reflects off it.
