Are you thinking about popping that very important question but don’t know where to start?
Our friends at Platinum Guild International have shared 4 easy tips for starting the process, and we wanted to pass along!
Set A Budget
“How much should I spend on a designer engagement ring?” is a very common question. The rule of thumb is typically equivalent to two months salary, but ultimately it’s whatever you are comfortable spending.
2. Keep Your Lifestyle In Mind
Make sure you pick a setting that is conducive to your partner’s lifestyle – personal and professional. Platinum is the most secure setting for diamonds thanks to its high density and will not require your ring to be reinforced or re-shanked.
3. Choose Everlasting
Platinum is the most durable of the precious metals. Did you know the surface of your rings will actually get stronger with wear?
4. Consider The Maintenance
White gold requires rhodium plating to maintain its white finish and must be re-plated to address normal wear. This can be done as you take your ring to your jeweler for cleaning and maintenance. However, remember that platinum is naturally white and will never change color over time.
Do you love vintage-inspired engagement rings, but with a modern flair?
Danhov offers several engagement rings that have hand-engraved details. These intricate elements of ornate scrolls and milgrain offer eye-catching and light-catching components.
This Danhov Couture ring offers is not dated looking, but has a vintage touch with the hand detailing incorporated into the design.
The milgrain detailing and hand engraving on this Danhov Couture engagement ring adds just a bit of extra sparkle.

The Winter 2016-17 issue of The Knot has hit the newsstands and is featuring two of our favorite Danhov engagement rings in the editorial. To say the least, we’re thrilled!
In a story about WORKS OF ART, the Danhov Per Lei engagement ring with a diamond shank and bezel set oval was featured as a hot design that is totally of the moment (LE103-OV).
And in a store featuring The Knot’s BEST IN BRIDAL, our new Eleganza diamond split shank engagement ring was featured as a new classic (ZE185).
Every year between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day we see an increase in engagements. We believe this season brings family and friends together, so what better time to celebrate a new engagement? And, it gives you time to plan for a summer wedding!
This year, we’ve been noticing an increase in a few bridal trends that we wanted to share:
1. Yellow gold. This metal hearkens back to a more elegant and romantic time and its popularity continues to grow. Gold is a precious metal that is strong and timeless.
2. Two Tone. For those who are not sure about saying yes to a yellow gold engagement ring, we’ve seen an increase in two-tone bridal jewelry. This option allows you to have a touch of yellow gold, but maintain the presence of a white metal. Two-tone diamond rings also provide many brides the confidence to mix golds and not feel like they have to commit to a watch, earrings, necklace and bracelets in the same tone.
3. Halo free. We don’t believe diamond halos will ever be out of style, but we are seeing more and more brides choosing an engagement ring without a halo. In an effort to be different and stand-out from their friends they are breaking away from what was so popular for so long.
4. Multi-stones. Solitaires and single-stone rings with diamond halos and diamond shanks will always be classic. But this year we are seeing more multi-stone rings being selected than we have in some time. Couples preparing for marriage appreciate the symbolism of past, present and future, or you and me, in engagement rings featuring two or three stones.
Regardless of the ring you choose, remember that this is one piece of jewelry you are wearing every day, forever. Make sure this special piece represents your style and reflects what you love.
And for guys getting started on the process of purchasing a ring, our friends at The Plunge offer some great tips for shopping and selecting the perfect diamond.
