What is an engagement ring?
Many customers ask us why there is engagement rings at all and what purpose these types of
of rings have?
Before a couple gets married, they both first make a promise to tie the knot at a time in the future they will tie the knot. This promise is called "engagement" or "betrothal." The moment is heralded by one of the two partners through the wedding proposal proposal. During this proposal, an engagement ring is symbolically (and often in a surprising moment, e.g., during the Vacation) an engagement ring is given. Usually, the man kneels down and asks the question: "Will you marry me? "Will you marry me?" question. If she answers "Yes!" the woman's ring is placed on the Ring finger of the left hand. However, it also happens that first the proposal is made without a ring and then later, during the engagement period, an engagement ring or two are chosen together. The typical engagement ring traditionally has a single diamond or at least one dominant Main stone, which is then surrounded by smaller stones on the ring band. Men also like to wear like to wear an engagement ring nowadays, preferably engagement rings without a stone. Noble these rings are nevertheless.

The setting of the ring
There are many different styles of engagement ring design
- Solitaire Ring: In the classic solitaire ring, a single diamond is set in a a Setting with four or six claws. After the wedding, the Engagement ring is worn as a Ring is combined with the wedding ring on the ring finger
- tension ring: In plain tension rings, the gemstone is set directly in the Ring rail directly incorporated and is therefore very practical and well protected for everyday wear. Such Rings are both permanently on the ring finger, as well as in connection with the wedding ring together worn
- Modern rings, with their unique shapes, are often curved and are therefore rather worn alone.
Solitair rings with prong setting - the classics among engagement rings
engagement rings in the classic variant are usually solitaires, rings that are concerned with a single stone. The ring band is rather plain and unobtrusive and the gemstone is held in place with a 4 or 6 prong setting held in place. The focus of classic engagement rings is therefore on the gemstone. The ring serves to showcase the stone in a beautiful way. When choosing the stone size, it should be noted that a small gemstone in a setting with 6 claws is not as visible as in a four prong-setting, but is better protected from external shocks. For large gemstones (0.3ct. diamond and above), your own preference should be the deciding factor. A diamond is clearly visible in both variants and sparkles very beautifully.
Plain engagement rings - the bestseller for rings suitable for everyday use
Our engagement rings in tension optics are not only perfect rings for that one moment, the wedding proposal, but also prove to be particularly suitable for everyday wear engagement rings, because the gemstone is set between the ring rail and protected there. Due to the straightforward and simple ring rail, you can later combine the engagement ring very well with your wedding ring on the same finger. tension ring are just suitable for those who prefer something more down to earth as opposed to the big show. The diamond set in the center nevertheless always remains a real eye-catcher, as it seems to float freely in the ring rail. Zirconia stones represent an inexpensive alternative. The inexpensive zirconia can be set in all tension ring models. Our ring models with diamond are configurable in white gold, yellow gold, rose gold, platinum or silver.
Something extraordinary for your love: the modern engagement ring!
Our engagement rings include all the rings that bring out the latest trends in jewelry. In general, very different modern forms exist: Here, on the one hand, the setting or on the other hand, the ring rail can have a special feature. Many modern ring models tend to have the setting harmoniously integrated into the ring rail and not "just" sitting on the ring rail. As a result, many modern rings are somewhat more delicate and sometimes more elegant than the usual engagement rings.
Especially popular: Curved engagement rings
Rings with a curved ring rail combine elegant design with a high degree of everyday wearability. In this ring, the gemstone, whether diamond or cubic zirconia, is clamped or set between the ring and is protected by it against any shocks. Here you will find a wide variety of shapes for diamonds in brilliant cut or princess cut.

May it be be a little more valuable? Gold alloys are noble and ideal to be worn as a ring for a lifetime gold. Yellow gold is a very traditional color and is less commonly chosen today than in the past. However, the the contrast to the white gemstone here is very strong and therefore, even with small diamonds an elegant Option for a really beautiful ring. If your partner already wears gold jewelry, then you should also look at the Proposal ring Roségold has been the trend color par excellence for many years. Unlike with gold-plated rosé costume jewelry, the hue is actually not as pink or reddish as some would assume. The soft rosé looks very harmonious on the skin, as the shade still has a a discreet golden touch. Roségold is therefore perfect for women with a fair skin type. Of all Metals however, white gold rings are the most popular of all engagement rings. The visually timeless and durable white metal mixture is both with white, as well as colored stones, the first choice for of many couples.
The precious and very rare platinum is used both for large diamond rings, so also for those who place very high value on the longevity and robustness of the ring.
