Today purchasing an engagement ring has now become the status quo of identifying yourself as one who is already taken and ready for marriage but have you ever played with the rock or band on your hand and thought about its history? Since it`s not specified in the bible or the oldest documents that give detailed accounts of practices before marriage in time passed.
To find a good design, you can start by visiting the jeweller. They will present before you some of the more popular designs in the past five years. Unless your girlfriend has specified an interest in the older designs, try to keep to the modern ones. Gold and platinum rings are two of the best and can be adapted into many designs. You can leaf through a magazine on wedding ring design till you find one. White gold and silver are also options for the ring, but use those only if you know for sure your girlfriend would love them as much as the gold or platinum ring.
Now, when most people think of these kinds of titanium wedding rings, they think of the little rings that have stones that are set in them. However, there is a new style that is out where the stone actually acts as a part of the ring band itself. The way this works, is there will be a section where the ring does not come together. It will look like an incomplete circle. Then in that little hole, you put a stone that makes it look like the stone is holding together the titanium ring. This is something that you can not do with gold rings, because taking out that little piece of the ring makes it weaker. Gold rings would fall apart. The titanium is strong enough to get through it, however.
The diamond in itself creates a marvelous brilliance on the ring. A diamond ring with platinum or white gold as its base metal is the hottest choice of the latest fashion trend. You can also have a gold ring with a diamond befitting really gives a traditional look to the ring. But while choosing the diamond for the ring it is very much essential that you pay proper attention on the cut, caret, color and clarity of the diamond. The better you can have the more are the chances for your ring get an acute brilliance.
Some replicas are styled as more antique diamond engagement rings. These rings have an everlasting quality and symbolize tradition and heritage. The recent engagement of Camilla Parker Bowles in February of 2005 featured such an antique engagement ring. The platinum ring has an emerald-cut center diamond with three diamond baguettes on each side. This ring originally belonged to the Queen Mother and is believed to be valued at over $1 million.
Of course there is the very famous pink diamond ring that Ben Affleck gave to Jennifer Lopez. This 6 carat radiant shaped pink diamond quickly caught the attention of the public and has become a highly sought after replica. It is completed with a platinum band as well as three baguette white diamonds on each side. The pink diamond engagement ring is reported to have been purchased for $1.2 million in 2002. The ring, while easily identified is also very feminine and modern looking.
