How To Pick The Perfect Engagement Ring for Her Finger

Engagement Rings from Ace Jewellery, Leeds

You won't get this most crucial of jobs wrong with our expert tips!

Whether you’re preparing to propose to "the one", or newly engaged and looking for the perfect piece to seal your commitment, choosing the right engagement ring can be a time consuming, nerve-wracking and expensive decision.

So we want to share the benefits of our years of expertise with you to hopefully make that decision so much easier.

First things first; we always advise couples to do a little research beforehand, just so that you’re familiar with the general terms used by Jewellers. Terms like colour, clarity, carat and cut, and what they mean in terms of the rings you're considering. 

There's also the different styles of rings available to consider, and any new and emerging trends to look out for. You can read all about these and other terms in our handy guide; Tips for Choosing Your Perfect RingYou can also check out Instagram and our Instagram feed for inspiration.

The most popular type of engagement ring style is still the solitaire with a round brilliant cut diamond, but what if that style and design of ring doesn't work for your fiancée's hand or fingers? Well, the good news is that trends for more unusual fancy cut diamonds and designs are making a comeback.


How to Choose An Engagement Ring for Wide Fingers

Wider fingers and larger hands are best complemented by larger stones and thicker bands. This is a great opportunity to go bold with a design, such as this unusually beautiful trilogy ring. It has a round brilliant cut diamond at its centre, with two pear shaped side diamonds, finished and set in an elegant metal type of your choice.

How To Choose An Engagement Ring for Petite Hands

Slender fingers are usually better suited to smaller or single stones with a slightly slimmer band. This elegant diamond solitaire engagement ring set has a slightly slimmer band, and is set with a round brillant cut diamond in a crossover style. The simple design of this ring would make a really elegant statement without overpowering a delicate hand.

How to Choose an engagement Ring for Shorter or Slender fingers

Emerald cut diamonds have a rectangular shape with cropped corners, and a broad, flat plane that resembles stair steps when viewed from above. Long, narrow emerald cuts can flatter short fingers, whilst a squarer outline will suit long, slender fingers.

Emerald cuts are particularly well complimented by a platinum ring mount, and because of its shape, tends to only need a simple setting. The long straight lines of this stunning diamond trilogy ring, and a near-rectangular shape of the diamonds are a real stand-out feature!
