With This Ring...Choosing a Diamond Ring

Diamonds are a girl's best friend, except when you're picking one with your husband-to-be, under the watchful eye of a pushy salesperson. It helps to know what you want, but unless you've made a habit of wondering into jewellers and trying on rings just-in-case {ahem}, then there's a fair chance you won't have the slightest idea. Diamonds are a tricky thing - there's the four C's to balance, plus your boyfriend's bank balance, and knowledge (of the former) is key. One of the best sites I've seen in a while is Blue Nile. Check out their Diamond Guide, and then enjoy fiddling with the sliders to work out just what you can get for your money. Next comes the fun bit, picking a setting, choosing a matching wedding ring and best of all, pressing Buy!

  1. I loved the idea of designing my own ring--and so did my fiance! After weeks of dragging him in and out of jewellery stores looking for the perfect ring (it better be--going to wear it for a lifetime!), I decided to try online. Blue Nile was great for advice, but I loved 21Diamonds ( I just showed my fiance some of the styles and gems I liked and let him design it so it was still a bit of a surprise! And best customer service ever. If your feet hurt from looking, don't be afraid to try online!


I love to hear from my readers - many thanks for your comment!
