When it comes to picking the right engagement ring, there are thousands of diamonds to choose from. From metal choices to styles to the size and type of the center stone, engagement rings are as varied as the women who wear them. The shape of the diamond is often what sets the tone for the ring—so how do you know which shape is right for you?
This time of year, people often come through our doors with a list of people to buy for and a serious of question marks after each name. When it comes to finding gifts for the men who have everything, the key is remembering what they love to do, what they tend to wear, and what the gift would mean to them.
At Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry, we strongly believe that jewelry is meant to be worn. If you have or find pieces that you haven’t touched in years or come into family heirlooms that have no practical or personal place in your life, renew their glory by transforming them into custom pieces you can’t wait to wear.
Contrary to popular opinion (and hundreds of years of tradition), engagement rings don’t have to be a diamond solitaire. These five rings prove if beauty is in the eye of the beholder, love is in the ring of the betrothed—no matter what stone takes center stage.
For many people, finding the right engagement ring isn’t like shopping for a car or a new refrigerator; you can’t just do a ton of research online, compare reviews and pricing, and then ask for word-of-mouth referrals. Engagement rings, and jewelry in general, is an intensely personal purchase whether you are buying for yourself or someone you love. Given that fine jewelry comes with its own language and hundreds of designers, it can get overwhelming quickly. The only way to make that process easier is to find the right jeweler.
