Being Profitable in Business

Hello, my name is Damian and this is my new business blog. I am quite a novice in the world of business. I only started my company last year and it is only a small operation that I run part time out of my garage. I am lucky to have a friend who has been a businessman for many years, as he can offer me some fantastic advice. I wanted to start this blog to so I could share what I have learnt as I continue on my journey into the exciting world of business. I hope you find my blog useful.

Jewellery Design: Engagement Ring Trends to Consider

The process of picking out an engagement ring can be quite stressful. Not only do you want your potential spouse to love the design, but you also want it to match their character and overall style. As such, men find it quite difficult to choose an appropriate ring and instead base their decision on price. If you would like to whittle down your options, the first thing you should consider is the design that would be appealing to your potential spouse. Below are some of the current engagement ring trends that you could consider when contemplating jewellery design.

Oval-shaped diamond rings

In years past, diamond rings typically were square cut, and this was considered the standard design when seeking out an engagement ring. Over time, though, more and more people have started to gravitate toward oval-shaped diamond. These type of cut is classic and provides the ring with effortless elegance. To make the oval shaped diamond stand out, you should choose a thin band that will not detract from the precious stone.

Coloured gemstones

Another trend that is steadily becoming popular when it comes to engagement rings is using coloured stones. However, you should be careful not to go overboard and choose a smorgasbord of different coloured gemstones to make the ring appear unique as this could make it seem too busy. Instead, you should pick one colour for the main gem that would be on display. For instance, canary diamonds are an excellent option as the yellow colour is quite appealing. On the other hand, you could go for a distinct colour such as a blue sapphire that is sure to stand out. If you preferred something rarer, a black diamond would suffice. With coloured centre stones, it is not always necessary to accent them with surrounding gems but if you feel the urge to, ensure the surrounding stones are clear.

Vintage-inspired ring designs

It should be noted that there is a significant difference between an actual vintage ring and one that is vintage inspired. Not everybody can have a vintage ring to use for their proposal as these rings are passed down generations. Nevertheless, you can capture this antique style with a vintage ring that incorporates features such as a milgrain design, a marquise cut gemstone and more. To make it easier for you to choose a vintage inspired style, pick an era that appeals to you and have the ring designed accordingly.
