When courtship turns to romance, then develops into to love and the desire to marry, it’s not unusual for a man to think about how he can select the “perfect” engagement ring to surprise the woman he loves. A titanium engagement ring ensures that whatever stone you choose will have a setting that will last forever.
Choosing the ring of her dreams begins with knowing her personality and observing her fashion style. The beauty and versatility of titanium combined with a beautifully cut stone and setting produces a ring that your partner will be delighted to wear.
While an engagement ring is an expression of your feelings, they are available in a wide range of price points, styles and settings. A diamond engagement ring is a longtime favorite, but there are many women who prefer other stones such as sapphires, emeralds or rubies, and semi-precious stones have many fans as well.
Today there are man made gemstones, some claiming to be of a quality that makes them almost identical to the diamonds, sapphires, rubies and emeralds created by nature. This has created a new marketing opportunity for people who want the look of a diamond without the expense.
Choosing a quality natural diamond is not a simple task. The quality of the stone is the main factor in its cost. The most important factors to consider are; cut, clarity, color and carat weight. With natural and “man-made” diamonds to choose from understanding the advantages and disadvantages of these choices is the key.
From a long-term investment point of view, a natural diamond wins hands down over a man-made diamond. The best way to be sure of a diamond’s quality, is to seek out a reputable jeweler with Gemological Institute of America certification.
If you are on a limited budget and you want to purchase an impressive engagement ring, for the cost of a quality half-carat natural diamond in a 14K gold setting you could purchase a two carat man-made diamond.
Some consider the engagement ring to be an indication of what your future together may hold. It’s also good idea to choose an engagement ring that can be easily matched to a titanium wedding band. But if your choice does not suit her, be sure that when you choose the ring, the jeweler will allow it to be exchanged.
