Finding the Perfect Engagement Ring: A Guide to Sparkling Happiness

At Ottery Jewellery, we understand the significance of finding the perfect engagement ring to symbolise your love and commitment. With so many options available, it can be overwhelming to choose the right one. In this blog post, we'll guide you through the process of selecting an engagement ring that will make your partner's heart skip a beat.
Understanding the 4Cs of Diamond Engagement Rings
The 4Cs – Cut, Colour, Clarity, and Carat – are the key factors to consider when choosing a diamond engagement ring. Our expert jewellers can help you find the perfect balance between these elements to suit your style and budget.
  • Cut: The cut of a diamond refers to its proportions, symmetry, and polish. A well-cut diamond will refract light better, giving it a more radiant appearance.
  • Colour: Diamond colour is graded on a scale from D (colourless) to Z (light yellow or brown). The closer to colourless the diamond is, the more rare and valuable it becomes.
  • Clarity: Clarity refers to the presence or absence of inclusions and blemishes. The clearer the diamond, the more brilliant it will appear.
  • Carat: The carat weight of a diamond determines its size. The larger the diamond, the more rare and valuable it becomes.
Setting the Scene: Choosing the Right Setting
The setting of your engagement ring is just as important as the diamond itself. Our expert jewellers can help you choose from a range of settings to suit your style, including:
  • Prong Setting: A classic setting that secures the diamond with metal claws.
  • Bezel Setting: A modern setting that wraps the diamond in a band of metal.
  • Tension Setting: A sleek setting that holds the diamond in place with tension.
Metal Matters: Choosing the Right Metal
The metal you choose for your engagement ring is a matter of personal preference. Our expert jewellers can help you choose from a range of metals, including:
  • Gold: A classic choice that comes in white, yellow, and rose.
  • Platinum: A strong and durable metal that's perfect for everyday wear.
  • Silver: A modern and sleek metal that's perfect for those who prefer a minimalist look.
The Perfect Fit: Sizing and Resizing
At Ottery Jewellery, we understand that every finger is different. That's why we offer resizing to ensure your engagement ring fits perfectly.
