ENGAGEMENT RING GUIDEThe diamond and the setting are the two components of an Engagement Ring. If you are looking for the best value and quality, it is best to pick out these two parts separately. This way insures that you get the diamond you want and the setting you want at the best price. Some people choose the diamond before they choose the setting, while others find it easier to pick the setting style first and than find the perfect diamond. You can divide your budget between the setting and diamond as you see fit. For example, you can choose to put most of your budget towards the diamond and get a larger or finer stone, decide to get a more expensive setting, or find it easier to split your budget equally. Our unique online features allow you to design your own ring and switch back in forth between the diamond and the setting until you create your dream ring.
