Buying Engagement Rings Milwaukee or Wedding Rings It is important to find the best engagement ring according to one’s requirements and style. The first engagement gift will probably be a ring given to customer by her fiancé (although many engaged women prefer not to have a ring). A single diamond (symbolizing love and fidelity) is the classic choice, but other precious and semiprecious gemstones—opals, sapphires, rubies, or emeralds, alone or paired with diamonds— are also appropriate. Some couples choose engagement rings that they will wear as engagement rings Milwaukee. If customer plans to wear her engagement ring on the same finger as her wedding ring or she wants her wedding ring to match the groom’s, shop for matching sets together. Her fiancé’s family may present her with an heirloom ring, instead, or she may have stones belonging to her family placed in a new setting. In addition to her ring, her fiancé may give she is another gift, such as a bracelet, necklace or perhaps a watch—in honor of the engagement, or later as a wedding gift. She may also wish to give him a present—such as a watch. An engagement need not be a gift-giving occasion. Those particularly close to her, however, may surprise her with household or trousseau items. Whatever she receives, respond promptly with a written note of thanks, even if she expressed her gratitude in person. Her engagement brings with it a host of customs that have been practiced for centuries by couples throughout the world. Here are some of the most popular traditions. Styles that last a lifetime Colored semi-precious stones like rubies, sapphires and emeralds are waning in popularity in wedding bands because they don’t stand up to time as well as diamonds and may have to be replaced. A diamond lasts through generations because it's 110 times harder than a ruby or a sapphire. Once she chooses the color of the wedding band prefer, the designs available are virtually endless, ranging from contemporary to more elaborate to bands that resemble antiques. If she is looking for something with details, engagement rings Milwaukee can be embossed with a simple monogram or message, or if she wants a more ornamental look, rings may be engraved with circle, crisscross or scroll patterns. One popular choice, particularly in men’s bands, is mil graining, a detail that looks like the ring has a strand of tiny beads applied to the edge as a border. Bands can vary in width anywhere from two to 10 millimeters. Rings can lie flat on the finger or can be a half-round cut, which has a curved, dome-like shape. As for shine, the bands can have a highly polished, mirror-like finish, a non-reflective matte finish or a satin finish. Whatever the choices, most brides today are choosing bands that are simple, understated and elegant. The reason, Brides wants something that’s really going show off the diamond in the engagement ring. They don’t want anything to overpower that center stone.
