Or have you already got it? 🙂 Then congratulations!
I, for example, always wanted an engagement ring with a white gold and a square black stone. Perhaps this is related to two moments of my life. Firstly, my sister has such ring, and the whole my youth and she was an idol for me, my style icon. Secondly – my gothic past. When I was a teenager, I used to dress very gloomy and wanted to stand out from the crowd, protesting. So the classic light-colored stones – were not for me.
Formerly it was believed that the smoother and the easier an engagement ring was, the better life would have the couple. But now twisted rings with engraved notches, runes, decorated with precious and semiprecious stones became very fashionable. You should choose such jewelry very carefully, especially stones, because each of them has its own power and symbolism. Many experts say that the selected stone can tell a lot about human nature, and also have an impact on the marriage.
Diamonds are generally colorless, but some of them are inherent in shades of pale yellow, bright yellow or brown colors of varying intensity. Absolutely transparent stones are called diamonds of a“clean water.” Stones that don’t have any color shade (except the bluish one) are valued most highly. But point is not in how expensive is the engagement ring that you choose. As mentioned in the legendary TV show “Sex and the City”: it is impossible to say “yes” to the person, who has chosen an expensive, but absolutely inappropriate ring. Because you can’t love someone, who doesn’t really know you.
On a cut of the stone depends how it will refract and reflect the light – that is how it will shine and sparkle. The most popular, the most glittering and the most expensive are diamonds in a round shape cut K-57. You can also choose unusual shapes and cuts: marquise, princess, heart, pear, and others.
Stones can be divided into three types:
Precious – diamond, emerald, ruby, pearl, sapphire;
Miscellaneous ornamental – agate, malachite, aventurine, coral, jasper, carnelian and others;
Semiprecious – aquamarine, beryl, turquoise, chrysoprase, rhinestone, zircon and others.
One of the most durable stones is a cut diamond. By itself, diamond is a symbol of purity, integrity and consistency. Click To Tweet The first to decorate wedding rings with diamonds were Italians (there were signet rings with a family crest, that noble aristocrats gave to their sweethearts as a sign that they were accepted in the genus). Oriental nations believe that a woman who received an engagement ring with a diamond will be endowed with a long and happy fate.

Its color depends on the preferences of your darling – gold can be familiar red, yellow or white. But it is possible to give preference to, for example, silver or platinum. Diamond will suit great almost everything. Other “dangerous” gold colors is better not to choose, because they are not particularly robust. More about “dangerous” gold colors: ”2017 – is the era of the black gold. Follow the Dark Side!”.
By the way, answering the question about the price of an engagement ring: in the modern world it is considered that the ring should cost three your salaries. Click To Tweet But it’s just a funny rule 🙂
Rubin – a symbol of passion and energy, it is believed that this stone has healing properties and helps to resolve disputes and misunderstandings between the newlyweds. Rubin may have a different shade from pale pink to deep red. A great combination with any shade of gold, but especially pay attention to the combination with platinum and silver.
It is believed that Emerald – is a perfect stone for the patient and balanced women. There is also a belief that lasting emerald cracks only if the one to whom it belongs, is cheating in marriage. By the way, dark green emerald varieties appreciate even more expensive than a diamond.
What about the style of ring – minimalism or pretentiousness? It can be understood according to what is in the casket of your future bride. Choosing the shade and the color of an engagement ring, by the way, you can have recourse to the table of skin tones and choose the one that will be exactly to her face. Well the order to how to get the ring size, I think you will understand it by yourself 🙂
It is believed that if the engagement ring has a sapphire – she will totally answer “yes”. So this stone is for those, who doubt.
Pearl gives to its owner power, improves intuition and helps to strengthen family bonds. People believed that if the pearl begins to get dark, so the person is on a wrong life path.

Turquoise and Opal are signs of a long and happy love;
Zirconium is considered to be aid at the comprehending of life, drives away the melancholy;
