Say ‘YES!’ To These Gorgeous Engagement Rings For Women
Engagement rings are so much more than a piece of jewellery on your finger. They signify the bond you share with that someone special and are symbols of everlasting love. Moreover, they’re something you wear every single day. So, it’s only fair that you find an engagement ring you love as much as the person who gave it to you. Which is why we’ve curated a bunch of information that’ll help you find yourself the perfect engagement ring.
Things To Keep In Mind While Picking An Engagement Ring:
Your taste: Your engagement ring should be an extension of you. Make sure you pick one that reflects your taste and personal aesthetic.
Your budget: This is a big one. Traditionally, people spend around three month’s salary on an engagement ring. But you’re allowed to go as big or small as you’d like. At the end of the day, it’s not about the money but the love the ring represents. In fact, you can even go for high quality imitation jewellery like pieces from Myrie, if you’re working with a smaller budget.
The 4 Cs of Diamonds/American Diamonds:
Carat - Diamonds are weighed in carats, which is 200 milligrams. In most cases, the higher the carats, the higher the price of the diamond.
Clarity - Clarity is the absence of inclusions and blemishes. Inclusions are internal flaws and blemishes are external.
Colour - American Diamonds are graded on their lack of colour. A completely clear, colourless diamond is most desirable whereas the more yellow a diamond looks, the lower the grade.
Cut - Cut refers to how the diamond is faceted to reflect light without letting it out. This is what makes them sparkle.
- Your size: This goes without saying. Make sure you pick a ring that’s comfortable and doesn’t bind too tightly or slip off your finger.

FAQs About Engagement Rings:
Which hand should your engagement ring be on?
Engagement rings are usually worn on your ring finger on your left hand. This tradition dates back to Egyptian and Roman times with Romans believing that the vein on the ring finger of your left hand leads directly to your heart. Other cultures have different reasons and some even wear them on their right hands. Therefore, where you wear them is completely up to you.
Which metal is most suitable for an engagement ring?
Since engagement rings are something you’ll be wearing on a daily basis, the most important thing to keep in mind when it comes to metals is your skin. If you have allergic reactions to certain metals, stay away from them. Usually metals like 24K gold and rhodium are skin safe, which is why most of the rings at Myrie are plated with them. Plus, as an added bonus, all our rings are anti-tarnish e-coated, which makes them tarnish-free and gives it a long lasting shine.
Should your ring match your partner’s?
This is completely up to you. You can absolutely get a ring that matches your partner’s. Or if you both have individual tastes, you can both get unique rings to reflect that.
Should your engagement ring and wedding band match?
Again, this is completely up to you. If you’d like to coordinate both the rings, feel free to do just that. If you want a more unique look, there’s no need to match them. Just make sure one ring doesn’t take away from the other and dim its shine.
