Buying diamonds for your marriage proposal

Before getting to the heart of the matter, let's talk about the symbolism of the engagement ring.

The engagement ring's official existence dates back to theRoman and Greek Antiquity. At the time, it was a simple iron ring that was placed on the left ring finger. Why was this done? It was believed that a vein connected the finger directly to the heart.

Later, in the Middle Ages, precious materials, in particular silver and bronze, gradually replaced the very precious metal. simple iron ring. It was not until the 15th century that precious stones and diamonds began to adorn increasingly elaborate rings. The diamondreserved for the nobility, was guarantor of the couple's harmony after the wedding. That's the story, now let's get down to the technical side of things, which ultimately determines the choice of groom

Symbol of purity and eternitydiamond is traditionally the most chosen precious stone for an engagement ring. But if you want to go off the beaten track, it's perfectly possible to give a beautiful ring mounted with aa sapphire (light blue), an emerald (green) ora ruby (red).

For or against a Diamond?

Diamond In our opinion, it has the advantage of going with everything, from clothes to jewellery. The coloured stone is a more original option, but there are no real rules. sound out your future wife's tastes She'll be wearing it on her finger for the rest of her life. 

La quality and value of a diamond are defined using 4 criteria the 4C (Cut, Carat, Clarity, Color) i.e. the diamond's cut, weight, clarity and colour.

These four criteria are also present on the certificate which accompanies your future ring or the stone alone above 0.4 carat.

The weight of a diamond is expressed in carats (cts), while colour and purity are illustrated by letters. Colour is graded from D for the most colourless to Z. The more colourless the diamond, the higher the price.

What type of gold should I choose for my wedding ring?

Yellow gold, white gold or platinum? Here's another choice you need to consider.

First of all, I advise you to take a look at the rings owned by your future wife. This observation will enable you, first of all, to determine whether she prefers a yellow or white metal. If your wife collects yellow gold rings, don't think twice - you'll have to choose a ring that's just right for her. engagement ring in yellow gold.

Yes, but what if it's a white metal? If it's white, then you have to choose between white gold and platinum.

While white gold and platinum are very similar, they differ in three key respects: purity, durability and strength.

  1. White gold is not found in nature. It is a alloy of 75% yellow gold and 25% silver, nickel or zinc. Platinum is 95% pure, which puts it ahead of gold in terms of "purity" of the precious metal.
  2. As explained above, white gold is made up of 75% of yellow gold. allow for yellowing of the metal after a few years. To revive whiteness will need to be re-rhodium plated
  3. The ring. The aim of this operation is to apply a thin film of Rhodium to render the jewel stainless and maintain its brilliant grey colour.
  4. Here again, the advantage goes to Platinum, which is naturally light grey and will not undergo any colour change over time.
  5. Gentlemen, remember your physics lessons! Platinum has a higher density than gold. It is therefore more resistant to scratches. But here's the thing... Platinum is rarer in nature and therefore more expensive. Around 30 to 40% more expensive than gold. Now that we've covered the technicalities, let's talk style!

What style of engagement ring should I choose?

Now that we've covered everything, let's talk about ethical jewellery ! The idea of ethical jewellery emerged in the wake of the haute horlogerie mega-show, and is now beginning to make inroads into the market. big names in luxury. Each company is well aware of the fact that the diamonds are not eternal. Not to mention the fact that customers are increasingly aware of the need to protect the environment. sustainable development and the origin of raw materials. Since then, 98.5% of diamonds purchased are RJC certified. This trend also applies torecycled goldwhich is becoming increasingly common in jewellery. As it undergoes a series of treatments, it costs around 15 % more than traditional gold. This impact inevitably has a knock-on effect on the final price, but the public is sensitive to the approach and some brands have realised that it is also good for their image. The objective today is to creating jewellery with kindnessin accordance with a mission and a mission statement. ethical progress. Taking a fresh look at jewellery, without depriving it of the poetry and grace that make it what it is.
