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.
In this article we are not going to go into much detail about cut or carat size as you will be able to get this information from the website or store where you buy your ring, however you should consider the style, which is what we will be focusing on today. Luxury - These rings are a cut above the rest, quite honestly in terms of price, your ring will be larger or have more diamonds if you choose a multistone over a solitaire ring. The clarity will be increased and if your gemstone is a diamond, it will be clearer and colourless with very few imperfections. The carat size will also be bigger and certain cuts cost more so you may have a greater option if you have a larger budget. Split Shank - These rings have a split in the shank or the band, this can be split in a number of ways and even have more than one split, giving the appearance of more than one band. The band can be decorated with diamonds or other gemstones or may be simple and plain with a large central stone.
The true meaning and symbol of the engagement ring started shining through in the 20th century, when men gave their fiancées a band that symbolized their love and intentions for a marriage union, the engagement ring signified that she had been taken, out of limits and ready to be married to her true love and it was placed on the fourth finger of the left hand, for that finger was believed to have a vein running through it which came directly from the heart therefore symbolizing the finger as a "heart finger". Earlier rings could just be a piece of silver or an iron band without any adornment, which the woman inserts into her fourth finger on her left hand, this was the practice for a short time till commercial rings and the media took over the engagement scene.
