An engagement ring consists of a stone, a setting and a band. The stone refers to the central gem, which is traditionally a diamond, but can be any durable gemstone. The setting holds the stone in place and attaches it to the round band, which is the circular part of the ring. The band may be set with diamonds to show off the central stone.
If you can’t ask her subtly about her taste in rings, consider her taste in clothes and other accessories: does she usually wear classic, simple styles? Or does she prefer a bold, jazzy look? Perhaps she’d prefer a colored stone if she’s creative and artsy. Remember that you can always ask her friends and family for their opinions. Also consider whether she’s concerned with social justice and would want certified, Fair Trade gold and a certified, conflict-free diamond. Angara complies with the Kimberley Process to offer you only conflict-free diamonds.
