FAQs about Color Diamond Engagement Rings

Why Choose a Diamond Engagement Ring?

​​A diamond engagement ring is not only a symbol of love and commitment. It is an heirloom that can be passed down through generations. Diamonds, known for their unparalleled hardness and brilliance, represent the enduring strength and beauty of your relationship. Choosing a diamond engagement ring is a testament to the lasting bond you share with your partner.

Engagement rings are worn as a symbol of commitment and love between two people, signifying their intention to marry. The tradition of wearing engagement rings dates back to ancient times, with various cultures adopting this practice for different reasons.

Reasons for choosing a diamond engagement ring include:

  • Historical Significance: The tradition of giving and wearing engagement rings traces back to ancient Rome. Romans exchanged rings as a symbol of trust and commitment. They often made these rings of iron and wore them on the fourth finger of the left hand. They believed this finger contained the "vena amoris" or "vein of love," which they thought led directly to the heart.
  • Once A Symbol of Ownership, Now a Promise: Initially, the giving of rings was a symbol of a transaction between families. Over time, it evolved into a more romantic gesture, symbolizing a mutual promise and commitment to a shared future.
  • Symbol of a “Forever” Vow: De Beers drove interest in diamond engagement rings in the 20th century. They created the slogan, "A Diamond is Forever." This cemented the idea that a diamond engagement ring is the ultimate symbol of enduring love and commitment.
  • Social and Cultural Expectations: In many societies, wearing an engagement ring has become a norm. It serves as a public declaration of their engagement and forthcoming marriage.
  • Personal and Emotional Significance: Beyond social and historical reasons, engagement rings hold personal significance for couples. They are a tangible representation of their love, devotion, and the emotional journey they have embarked on together.

What is the Average Rule for Diamond Engagement Rings? 

The "average rule" refers to the amount of money one should spend on the ring. A commonly cited rule has been to spend the equivalent of two to three months' salary on an engagement ring. This guideline suggests that if you earn $4,000 per month, you should consider spending $8,000 to $12,000 on the ring.

The "right" amount to spend on an engagement ring greatly varies among individuals, influenced by personal and shared values, financial situations, and future plans.

Langerman caters to a wide range of preferences and budgets, considering diamond engagement rings as luxury items.

What Are the Popular Styles for Diamond Engagement Rings?

  • Solitaire Rings: Featuring a single diamond, this timeless style emphasizes the beauty of the stone. The main stone can sit in a prong, bezel or even a modern tension setting depending on the preference.
  • Halo Rings: A central diamond surrounded by smaller stones enhances its sparkle and appearance.
  • Three-Stone Rings: Symbolizing the past, present, and future, this style features a trio of diamonds.
  • Two-Stoned (Toi et Moi): romantic design symbolizing the couple in the relationship;
  • Vintage-Inspired Rings: For those who admire the charm of bygone eras, these rings incorporate intricate designs and detailing.

What are the Most Popular Diamond Shapes?

Each diamond shape reflects a blend of historical significance, aesthetic preferences, and practical considerations, catering to a wide range of styles from traditional to modern, and from understated elegance to bold brilliance. Here are the most popular shapes for diamond wedding rings:

  • Round Cut: The most traditional choice when speaking of colorless diamonds as it is known for its brilliance and classic appeal. When speaking of color diamonds the brilliant round cut will not always be the shape that brings out the most color or sparkle, and fancy shapes play an important role.
  • Oval Cut: An elongated version of the round cut that can offer similar brilliance. It's an elegant choice that can lengthen the appearance of the finger but may show flaws if not cut properly.
  • Square Cut: A distinct and bold choice, known for its clean lines and symmetry. This cut delivers a contemporary appeal with its straightforward shape, making it a favorite among those who appreciate modern, minimalist designs.
  • Pear Cut: A hybrid of oval and marquise cuts, resembling a teardrop. This cut appears larger from the top view and is ideal for those who value uniqueness and size. It requires a setting that protects its pointed tip.
  • Marquise Cut: Known for its football shape, this cut creates an illusion of greater size and elongates the finger. It offers a regal feel but requires careful setting to prevent chipping.

    Other cuts include:
  • Princess Cut: Offers a modern and geometric look with its square or rectangular shape. It t requires protective settings due to its propensity to chip.
  • Cushion Cut: Combines a square cut with rounded corners, resembling a pillow. It's known for its old-world charm and is popular in vintage settings.
  • Emerald Cut: Features a rectangular step cut that emphasizes clarity and a unique "hall-of-mirrors" effect. It has an Art Deco aesthetic and suits those looking for elegance with a less flashy sparkle.
  1. Radiant Cut: Combines the shape of an emerald cut with deep facets for extra sparkle. It's a timeless choice without sharp edges, minimizing chipping risks, though it can appear smaller due to its cut.

How to Care for Your Diamond Engagement Ring?

To ensure your unique diamond engagement ring remains as dazzling as the day you received it, follow these care tips:

  • Regular Cleaning: Use a mild soap and water solution to gently clean your ring.
  • Professional Inspections: Have your ring checked by a professional jeweler annually for any necessary adjustments or repairs.
  • Safe Storage: When not wearing your ring, store it in a separate compartment or box to prevent scratches.
  • Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Remove your ring during activities that may expose it to harsh chemicals or abrasions.

Should I wear my diamond engagement ring everyday?

Whether you should wear your diamond engagement ring every day depends on various factors. This includes your lifestyle, the ring's design, and personal preference. Here are some considerations to help you decide:

Pros of Wearing It Every Day

  • Symbolic Significance: For many, wearing their engagement ring daily is a cherished symbol of their love and commitment.
  • Emotional Connection: Continuously wearing your engagement ring can strengthen your emotional connection to the ring and what it represents.
  • Fashion and Beauty: Diamond rings are beautiful and can complement your daily attire, adding a touch of elegance to your overall look.

Cons of Wearing It Every Day

  • Wear and Tear: Daily wear can expose your ring to potential damage. Diamonds, while hard, can be chipped by a hard blow. The setting, especially if it's delicate, might wear down or become loose, risking the loss of the diamond.
  • Exposure to Harmful Substances: Certain activities can expose your ring to substances that might harm it. Chemicals found in cleaning agents, chlorine in swimming pools, and even lotions can affect the metal and stones.
  • Risk of Loss or Theft: Wearing your ring everywhere increases the risk of losing it or having it stolen. This is especially true in public places or when traveling.

Best Practices for Wearing Your Diamond Engagement Ring

  • Consider Your Activities: Remove your ring during activities that pose a high risk of damage or loss. This can include working out, swimming, or doing manual labor.
  • Regular Maintenance: Regularly check the setting for any damage. Have your ring cleaned by a professional to maintain its sparkle and integrity.
  • Insurance: Ensure your ring is insured. This provides a safety net in case of loss, theft, or damage.
  • Ultimately, it’s your decision as to whether or not you wear the ring every day. If you choose to wear it daily, taking proper precautions can help safeguard your precious symbol of love.
