Engagement and Wedding Rings
Becoming engaged is a special moment in time for both partners, and understandably, most people will have the desire to give their partner the best diamond ring possible, hence the reluctance to invest in something “old” or second hand. The decision, therefore, to purchase a pre-owned engagement ring is really nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, quite the opposite. Here’s why:
At the outset, it is good to understand that purchasing a pre-owned ring from us will almost invariably provide you with a far greater value for far less money than what you’d pay at a retail jewellery store – these big brand names profit very well off of their popular brand images.
Diamonds are not like a car, appliance, or a piece of furniture, or even another gemstone in that they do not tarnish, “wear out”, are very difficult (almost impossible), to scratch and do not fade or lose their sparkle over time. Diamonds are also by their nature already “old” having formed in the centre of the earth millions of years ago, so anyone who buys a “new” diamond is already buying something which is very old – no escaping it. Diamonds are beautiful and truly do last forever.
It is also very difficult, (usually impossible) to tell a newly cut diamond from one that has been cut months, years or even decades ago. So essentially when you purchase a pre-owned diamond, you are buying something that is in exactly the same condition as what a new diamond would be in but instead is getting more extraordinary value for money. This is smart!
Whatever kind of Jewellery you may want to buy or sell, make Diamonds of Perth your first port of call. We buy and sell all kinds of second-hand jewellery from pearls to earrings, bracelets, silver and gold rings, bangles, brooches, chains, cufflinks, etc.
Bring in your gold – we will also buy your unwanted gold and silver jewellery, bullion and coins. Bring it in or call us now for a valuation. We offer top prices.

What are the best choices of engagement rings?
Choosing an engagement ring design involves finding a ring that fits your budget and lifestyle, blends well with the wedding band, and makes you happy. You need to evaluate the engagement ring’s stone and setting, as well as the band type and metals used. Learning about basic engagement ring design makes it easier to find the perfect ring.
The Basic Elements of an Engagement Ring
Whether you buy a pre-set engagement ring or design your own from separate settings and gems, there are several important elements to consider. Each of these basic aspects will affect the overall engagement ring design, so it’s essential that you understand these factors before you make a decision.
One of the most important elements in the design of any engagement ring is the setting. Setting refers to the metal base for the gems in the ring, as well as any decorative elements that are crafted in precious metal. It serves two main functions: supporting and securing the gems and adding decorative appeal. There are a number of different engagement ring settings to choose from, including the following popular options.
Bezel settings – A design in which the gem is set in a cup of precious metal, this type of setting is ideal for fragile gemstones or people who have active lifestyles.
Tiffany settings – Also called prong settings, this type of design holds the gem in place with small metal prongs. It’s perfect for providing maximum light reflection and refraction within a diamond or gem.
Tension settings – In this type of design, the band is perfectly calibrated to hold the diamond in place without prongs or bezels. It’s a modern, clean-lined choice.
Channel settings – This type of setting involves a channel of diamonds or gems held in place by higher precious metal sides. It is perfect for adding diamond enhancements to the band of the ring.
Pave settings – Typically used to give all-over sparkle to a ring, a pave setting involves placing dozens of round diamonds across the surface of a band. It’s often used in combination with other settings.
Platinum is a naturally white metal with a cool lustre that showcases the brilliance and sparkle of diamonds beautifully. It’s a popular choice for engagement rings and wedding bands and is considered the most precious of all jewellery metals.
Compared to gold, platinum is five times as rare and purer when used in jewellery. Platinum is durable, making it a good option if your fiancée leads an active lifestyle — its density provides a secure setting for diamonds or gemstones. Platinum is also naturally hypoallergenic, so it’s a great choice for those with sensitive skin.
Its elegant sheen will not fade or change colour over time, making re-plating your platinum ring unnecessary. Because of its strength, it’s a popular choice for setting diamonds.
Gold is an extremely versatile metal and the most common choice for jewellery. The standard measurement of gold is a karat, which is divided into 24 parts. Pure gold is 24 karats, meaning 24 out of 24 parts are gold.
Pure gold is too soft to be used for jewellery, so it’s combined with other metal alloys to increase its strength. You’ll find 22K gold, but most often gold comes in 18K (75% gold), 14K (58% gold) and 10K (about 42% gold). The remainder is made up of other metals — like silver, copper, nickel and zinc — to lend strength and durability. The type and percentage of metal alloys used to determine the shade and colour of gold. For example, 22K gold tends to be a rich, saturated gold colour, while 14K gold may appear as a slightly paler yellow.
How to Buy An Engagement Ring: Tips
When buying an engagement ring, it’s important to consider the style preferences of the bride-to-be (if you know them), your budget, and the quality of the diamond (if you’re buying a diamond ring). These essentials will help guide you to the right choice.
Bride-to-be: Try to figure out what she likes by being observant or asking friends or family. Does she adore solitaires or love rings with side stones? Did she once mention that she would love a ring like Kate Middleton’s?
Budget: Buy the most beautiful ring you can within your budget. Your bride will appreciate you for making the effort (but she probably won’t be thrilled if it takes ten years to pay it off).
Diamond Quality: Understand the 4 Cs of a diamond so you ensure that you’re getting a quality stone. Choosing a diamond that has been certified by GIA is important, so you can be sure of the value of the diamond and its quality. Other laboratories don’t have standards as strict as GIA and may not be as trustworthy.
Regardless of the final choice, it’s important to remember that this ring will remain on her finger for the rest of her life, symbolising the love and commitment two people have for each other. It’s worth taking a little time and effort to make an informed decision, incorporating her style and preference if possible.
