How To Choose An Engagement Ring

How To Choose An Engagement Ring


We know that variety is the spice of life, and we also know that our customers are as unique an individual as our pieces of jewelry. It is our privilege as an online jewelry store to work with customers from all walks of life, and we strive to consistently offer the widest range and the greatest number of different options when it comes to rings.

A choice of metals, a choice of diamonds and gemstones, a choice of finishes, sizes, styles and surfaces… all of this is at the heart of what we do. It may be that despite our huge range, you can’t quite find the exact engagement ring which ticks all the boxes. 

Should this be the case, we are here to help you, and would be ready to design an original piece according to your specifications. 

Choosing the perfect ring can be a little difficult. Perfection is key, and there is a lot to keep in mind! Your budget must be considered, and more importantly, her style, her outlook, her way of life and taste in jewelry all have to be thought about when making your selection.

Because we believe that an engagement ring should be a reflection of a woman’s personality and lifestyle, we have put together this handy guide to make the best selection for her. 


Some women love to dazzle those around them with their glamour, and with pieces which exude an irresistibly bold charm and confidence. If your lady fits this bill, the chances are she’s going to love an engagement ring that truly catches the eye, such as a halo ring, which features a circle of diamonds around the central diamond.

This has the effect of increasing the perceived size the central diamond, and truly adding an unbeatable sparkle which is sure to turn heads and elicit envious gasps! For a similarly eye-catching effect, why not consider one which has a setting which places her diamond higher, or which perhaps sparkles from the band with a series of set diamonds? Whatever you need, Oren & Erez are here to help you choose. 


Some women exude a sense of elegance, class and style, and seek out items of jewelry to accentuate this aspect of their beauty and character. For a woman who appreciates the classics, and isn’t afraid of making bold, timeless statements with her jewelry, we would recommend a classic solitaire setting.

This ring style focuses the eye effortlessly on the diamond, set in the center, waiting to be admired. These are the most popular engagement rings on the market, and for good reason: their simplicity and brilliance exude a truly effortless sense of grace and sophistication, and they complement a wide range of outfits and styles.

Solitaires’ beauty comes from their simplicity and directness: they typically feature a simple band, with the emphasis and focus being solely on the diamond in the center. However, there are plenty of opportunities to customize your solitaire engagement ring, so think carefully about whether there are any additions which would set your elegant lady’s heart fluttering, and let us help you make the dream a reality! 


We are constantly taking inspiration from the forms and beautiful patterns of nature. Organic, natural forms looks spectacular on engagement rings: curling vines, floral patterns and wreaths of leaves, and if you are in love with a woman who feels most at home on windswept hillsides, in the forests and mountains or simply spending time in her garden, this sort of ring might be the perfect option.

If you would like to see how we reflect the beauty of nature in our designs, get in touch - we are waiting to hear from you! 


If your beloved is always looking to the future rather than the past, and likes to stay one step ahead of the latest trends, then you’ll be delighted with our range of contemporary, cutting-edge and modern engagement rings. Women are natural trailblazers, and their artistic souls are constantly seeking out new forms and ideas.

You can show your appreciation for this with one of our sculptural rings - rings which play with and experiment with non-traditional shapes and concepts. Perhaps your partner would be happier eschewing tradition altogether.

Fear not! We have countless options available for your lady, including rings which sparkle and dazzle with diamond accents, instead of centre diamonds. Let us help you on your journey to finding something perfect, no matter how outlandish that may be. 


Does your fiance-to-be love losing themselves in the ancient cities of Europe, and adores nothing more than curling up with an old book and reading of times gone by? If so, there are plenty of stunning rings in our collection which would set her heart alight with joy.

We simply love working with classical shapes and patterns, and adding archaic, antique-inspired touches to our beautiful engagement rings. It is impossible not to be inspired by the beauty of the past, so if these types of vintage engagement rings would resonate with your lady, don’t hesitate to browse our extensive collection. 


Everyone has their favorite precious metal, and their favorite color when it comes to rings, and we are proud to make rings in high quality gold, silver and platinum, in order to offer our customers the widest range of possible choices. 

If you aren’t sure which your beloved would prefer, take a look at what she normally opts for when she buys jewelry, or try to discreetly find out from friends and family. If you need further help, we are specialists in putting together all the pieces of the puzzle, and we’re confident we can help you achieve perfection. 


We understand that most engagement rings are presented as a surprise, and the true romantics among you wouldn’t dream of having it any other way.

Over the years, we have heard countless beautiful stories of men 'popping the question' in surprise situations, and we know that the element of secrecy is crucial for some people to really sweep their lover of their feet! 

In order for an engagement to go as planned, that ring really must slip elegantly onto her finger. Nothing spoils the moment like struggling to squeeze a diamond ring onto a digit, or having it slip right off again onto the floor.

However, we fully understand that sometimes, getting hold of your partner’s ring size may not be possible without giving the secret away - and if this is the case, you need to play the detective, and try and get this information some other way. 

There might be somebody you can ask you knows her ring size - close friends and family members, perhaps. You can try printing out a ring-sizing chart, and use this to secretly measure her existing jewelry.

We will be happy to guide you through the process, in order to make sure you get it right first time. If there are any problems with the eventual ring size you purchase, we’ll even re-size it for you free of charge within 30 days.
