Rose Gold is at the height of popularity, as is the mixed-metals trend. Your ring can also be designed with brightly colored you gemstones in a white or yellow setting. You can find beautiful rings featuring colorful diamonds, rubies, and emeralds, and sapphires.
Affecting the Cost of your Engagement Ring
If you want a designer ring, you can control the cost of your ring to some extent- even if you have expensive taste. The size and clarity of the gemstones will have an impact on the price. In many cases, you can purchase a designer band of your choice, and purchase a diamond separately for the jeweler to set. You can also choose gemstones that are less expensive, if you are willing to break from the tradition of diamonds. Precious stones like rubies and emeralds will do beautifully and they usually cost less than a diamond of the same size and carats.
Metals also matter
Gold comes in a variety of colors and in several alloys. Since platinum and yellow gold and white gold are the most valuable precious metals, these are usually the choice for engagement rings. If the percentage of gold is lower, the ring will be cheaper. For instance, a 24K gold ring is pure and is the most valuable, so it costs more than a 22K or 18K ring. Of course, you’re compromising the quality if you choose a cheaper metal, but you may find it necessary to control the cost of your ring this way.
