Take a look!

How to Choose the Perfect Engagement Ring

How to Choose the Perfect Engagement Ring

Once you’re started thinking about getting engaged and you’re planning a surprise, there are lots of ways to hone in on the right ring.

Consider a few questions:

  1. How much time do you have? 
    With us, the wax custom process takes 8 to 10 weeks, with ample opportunities for your modifications and approval. If you don’t have that much time, there are simpler custom options, or it might be a good idea to find the perfect ring right in our store! 
  2. What’s her style?  
    Feminine, outdoorsy, classic, vintage or vintage-inspired? Take a close look at the jewelry she already has to inspire your design ideas, or describe her to one of our team members.
    Metal is another important design aspect to consider (platinum, rose gold, yellow gold, white gold, something else?), and her existing jewelry will definitely help you make that decision.  
  3. What budget are you trying to stay within?
    Contrary to popular belief, there are no hard-and-fast rules when it comes to an engagement ring budget. Determine what you’re comfortable with, and go from there! If you’re hoping to expand your budget, inquire about our Wells Fargo Jewelry Advantage financing option, interest-free for 12 months.
  4. What type of central gem do you want? 
    There are lots of options! Diamonds are a great choice because they’re the hardest known substance on the planet…which means they’ll hold up after years of wear. Trust us, no matter how careful we are, anything we wear on our hands takes a beating over time. Even though a traditional round brilliant white diamond is plenty beautiful, diamonds can be all sorts of colors and shapes. If you want something  even more colorful, the best alternative to a diamond is another durable gemstone, like a sapphire.   
  5. What style of setting appeals to you, and makes the most sense for her? 
    Again, the possibilities are endless, but there are a few practical questions to consider: is she active? Does she use her hands a lot at work? If the answer to either of these is yes, a lower-profile setting may be ideal. Try to keep in mind that you can love a design but need to modify it for your actual lifestyle. Vintage rings are delicate and detailed because, historically, they weren’t created to be everyday pieces. Wearing bridal jewelry every day is a modern development, and the construction of a ring should be determined by the lifestyle of its wearer.
  6. Do you know her ring size? 
    This part doesn’t have to be a headache! Most engagement rings aren’t the correct size to begin with – that’s where a talented workshop comes in! The most accurate way to find a finger size is to have a jewelry professional determine your partner’s finger size using finger sizers. We size all rings made or purchased with us complimentary, before or after presentation. Most techniques you can find online to determine a ring size aren’t 100% accurate, but they can help you get really close! If these techniques won’t work for you, rest assured that we can create the ring in an average size and size it after presentation.

Jewelry Cleaning at Home

Jewelry Cleaning at Home

We've made a guide for you to clean your jewelry at home if you're not able to come in for an appointment to see us.  

Cleaning your jewelry effectively is a great health precaution against this virus and others.

For diamond (or other hard stone) rings with gold or platinum shanks:

We suggest cleaning your rings with warm-to-almost-hot (never boiling!) water (1 cup) and mild dish soap (1 teaspoon). Make a solution with these two ingredients. If your pieces are heavily impacted by hand lotion, makeup, or caked up soap, soak them for no more than 40 minutes. With a soft-bristled toothbrush, carefully brush your rings, making sure to get behind the stones, mountings, and within any engravings. Rinse over a bowl. Never rinse any piece above an open drain. Repeat if necessary. Do not use a “moisturizing” soap.

Do not soak silver pieces, nor any stones that are below an 8 on the MOHS hardness scale.
This would include pearls, opals, and turquoise. You can, however, use a soft cloth to clean stones below an 8 on the hardness scale, just make sure you are not soaking or immersing them. 

When drying your pieces, avoid paper towels, since they can scratch the metal. If you have a soft cloth, feel free to use that. If not, let it air dry.

Please avoid using household cleaners such as bleach, chlorine, and acetone, as well as abrasive products such as toothpaste, baking soda, or any other powdered cleaners. These will break down or scratch your metals.
