Today, promise rings are quickly becoming a new tradition, and choosing one is almost as important as choosing an engagement ring. The offer of jewelry is immense, and you are bombarded with suggestions as soon as you start googling the item. But what should you choose? What styles are preferred? Are there rules regarding materials or shapes?
Well, there is only one rule – a ring should be selected with love. But choosing it in line with the girl’s taste won’t hurt either. You can spot her overall jewelry preferences by looking at her other rings or necklaces. Or you can ask her directly if a ring is not to be a surprise gift.
But what to do if you just cannot ask or understand what styles are her favorite? Opt for the safest models and materials, of course, by which we mean gold and diamonds or other precious stones. They never go out of style and will always be cool, unlike some trendy but non-precious models.
Colors Of Gold
It may sound nonsensical at first, but actually gold has many shades. Gold can be yellow, rose, or even black, and white gold is also a thing. It means that a ring will have this particular tint, pinkish, darkened, or ‘gold’ as we usually mean it. White gold looks like rhodium-plated silver but has different properties – and a higher value.
Each color of gold has its advantages and matches a particular color palette of stones. If your girl loves silver-colored jewelry, opt for white gold, if he wears golden pieces, choose a classic gold color.
Stones To Choose
When you’ve decided on the metal, look at stones. Diamonds are the safest bet. But if you know what stones she wears as her ‘lucky’ stones or what stones are her favorite, opt for them. Pearls, topaz, amethyst, and emerald are elegant and stylish. Opals look mysterious. Rubies and sapphires have their own elevated charm. The options are endless.
Just remember while choosing the stone size that it should not be grander and bolder than a future engagement ring. So a slim band with a modest stone or a cluster of small stones will be just right.
Possible Ring Styles
With regard to everything said above, it’s safe to conclude that dainty gold promise rings are what you should look for. A slim shape on her finger won’t attract unwanted attention and will look stylish in any jewelry combination.
As said above, a slim ring requires an equally careful selection of stones. They should be of matching size, strategically gathered into a cluster, halo, or sprinkled across the band, like a constellation of stars. The combination of stones is also a point to consider. You can opt for a mono-stone ring, a multi-stone ring, or a ring without stones.
A mono-stone ring means that it sports only one type of stone, like diamonds or amethysts; a multi-stone ring features an assembly of different stones, like a combination of small diamonds and sapphire, or a ruby and diamonds, pearls and diamonds, or whatever combination was designed by craftsmen. The choice of stones depends on your girl’s taste, that’s the rule.
Hope we set you on the right track to choosing a ring for your loved one. We believe she will sincerely appreciate your efforts – and the ring.
