The concept is simple
Instead of buying a ring, buy the metal and the diamonds or gemstones and present those in a beautiful wooden box.
Then simply present the box when you propose and your partner can take it from there. (Or you can continue the engagement ring design process together.)
There are still some important decisions for you to make
Of course, you’ll still need to make some decisions, for example, which precious metal (white, yellow or rose gold, platinum or palladium) and what combination of diamonds and/or gemstones to include.
We’ll be happy to help you with this if needs be.
But you don’t have to decide on everything
Quite often Promised Ring buyers choose just the metal and the feature stone (diamond or coloured gemstone). If your partner’s preferred design calls for it, accent diamonds or gemstones can easily be added later.
How will I know what to choose?
All you need to do is give us an idea of your budget and tell us a few things about your partner and the rest is easy.
Once we know a bit about their personal style, their colour preferences and their lifestyle, occupation and interests, we’ll be able to safely guide you the rest of the way.
‘Bigger’ isn’t always best
First instinct often tells us that ‘the bigger the better’.
Perhaps your heart is set on purchasing a one carat diamond, but your budget isn’t quite up to it?
Many people in this situation choose to buy several stones that add up to a carat – or purchase synthetics (a great ethical alternative).
Experienced jewellers will also tell you that buying the best you can afford is the way to go. So you might be better off choosing smaller, higher quality stones that really will dazzle.
Diamonds aren’t the only option
You might also choose to ditch the diamond altogether and choose your partner’s favourite gem or birthstone instead and the perhaps sprinkle a few accent diamonds around to add a bit of sparkle.
Striking central coloured gemstones are very popular and could be a wonderful way to create the ‘Wow-factor’ without breaking the bank.
Choosing the right metal isn’t difficult either
If you don’t already know, a few simple questions will help us zero in pretty quickly on which precious metal of what colour will best suit your partner
It really is the thought that counts
When you are choosing something this significant without your partner’s input, it’s important that you are able to show them that you put a lot of thought into their feelings and preferences when making your decision.
The beauty of The Promised Ring is that you can still offer the element of surprise and ensure your partner ends up with exactly what they want.
