Isn’t it funny when you are planning a wedding (or engagement) you suddenly become an expert in things you had no idea about whatsoever? When Jack and I got engaged we told our loved ones over the phone, and when asked about the ring I had no clue how to describe it, “big, sparkly, diamond?” I knew nothing about the beauty glimmering on my finger, turns out I needed a little Engagement Ring 101.
It’s incredible – with just a base knowledge about engagement rings – how many unique custom designs you can create. We consulted our friends at Joseph Jewelry who have been super helpful experts for us on Bridal Musings for quite some time! Previously, they’ve taught us quite a bit about gemstones, and today they’re gifting us a little Engagement Ring 101 on different ring shapes (who knew there were so many!)
The experts rang in with their advice to ring shoppers: choose the shape that attracts you. Don’t be afraid to try on different shapes. If you’re looking for the biggest stone you can find for your budget, try oval, marquise, or pear. For the biggest sparkle, go with round.
Whether you want to keep it simple with a round cut solitaire (mine, I’ve learned!) or create something unique with marquise diamonds, Joseph Jewelry offers endless customizations, to design the ring of you or your loved one’s dreams. In their custom design process, expert jewelry designers can mock up designs for you with different shapes. In the 3D stage, they can send you a wax model to try on the piece before your dream ring is created – talk about assurance!
