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?
“Will you marry me?”
It’s the sort of question you should already know the answer to, but still get a little nervous thinking about. Rather than focus on “what if she says no,” turn your attention to making sure both she (and you) are ready to make the big step in your relationship. If all signs point to yes, then chances are, her answer will be, too. Here are three tips to get you started with those hints she’s been dropping. Of course, the actual act of proposing can be one of the most beautiful—and stressful—moments to plan. While you take care of the personal details, we’re happy to help you pick out the perfect engagement ring.
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.
First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in a baby carriage. And a mortgage, a job promotion, another baby, a 10th anniversary, and a vacation timeshare. Life is full of milestones small and large. You started off with wedding rings, but how do you commemorate everything else?
In the ancient story of love coming full circle, the Archduke Maximilian of Austria gave Mary of Burgundy a diamond ring to signify their engagement in 1477.
And a silver sixpence in her shoe.
Each detail put into the planning of your wedding is uniquely special. From the flowers you choose to the dress you wear, your wedding reflects your personal style and taste everywhere you look. One of the most important pieces in a wedding is, of course, the wedding ring. Your wedding ring is a symbol of your one-of-a-kind bondage with your significant other, and also reflects your personal flair and style.

Finding the Perfect Ring to Propose Your Engagement
Finding the diamond engagement ring in Baton Rouge that you know is just right may seem overwhelming at first. When you are on the hunt for that one special diamond, it is crucial that you remember the five C’s. What are the five C’s, you may ask? The five C’s are:
All of Lee Michael’s diamonds are color graded using the Gemological Institute of America’s (GIA) color-grading scale, which is the accepted scale in the industry. Diamonds are color graded from the side and top of the stone, and the grading scale begins at D, meaning colorless, and continues through Z, with an increasing presence of color. Cut refers to the diamond’s artistry, and is the most critical of the C’s because a significant amount of the diamond’s value depends on the diamond cutter’s craftsmanship. Clarity refers to the unique characteristics of a diamond, with clarity grades ranging from flawless (FL) to imperfect (I). Carat refers to how precious gems are weighed. Diamonds are weighed only when they are loose or free from any mounting. The final C, Confidence, refers to the assurance you feel when you have selected your diamond from one of the most reputable and trusted names in the industry, Lee Michaels.
