How Should You Choose Engagement Ring Setting

When buying a proposal ring, consider four aspects: Quality, Size, Longevity, and Meaning. Quality and size determine the cost of your band, while longevity and meaning decide its impression.

Still confused? Here’s how to cherry-pick the best ring for your soulmate:

Consider the Four C’s

In the jewelry industry, the four C’s refer to a stone’s cut, color, clarity, and carat. Buyers are advised to look closely at these stats to identify the best ring. The basic rules are as follows:

  • Invest in a gem with a Good or Excellent cut. (Otherwise, it won’t sparkle.)
  • Don’t buy diamonds below the “J” rank. (“D” is the best option.)
  • Ensure your ring’s clarity is at least SI-1.
  • Choose Carat based on your budget. (A higher carat means a more expensive stone.)

Have a Budget in Mind

On average, US couples spend $1,000 to $4,000 on their promise rings. But you need to set your own budget according to the desired size, carat, metal, and design. Note, however, that custom-design rings—currently trending—might require a bigger budget, as they include extra design and artist fees.

Foresee Maintenance and Longevity

The wisest option would be to go with the sturdiest materials for your engagement ring. This ensures that it will last long and require little to no maintenance. Diamonds for stone and platinum for metal are the two strongest choices.

Take Symbolism and Meaning into Account

While a Solitaire ring setting signifies classic love and minimalism, Channel represents fresh feelings and modern relationships. To choose the ideal engagement band, study each setting’s subtle and hidden meaning. (The following table might help with that.)

Ring Setting Symbolism
Solitaire Classic, Minimal, Refined
Halo Romantic, Dreamy, Sparkling
Three-Stone Sentimental, Balanced, Nurturing
Pave Detail-oriented, Vibrant, Bold
Channel Modern, Organized, Reliable


How to Futureproof Your Engagement Ring Using Stats

A foolproof way of picking a proposal band is by looking at the current stats and identifying the most popular options. Currently, 51% of prospective spouses choose a round diamond, and 83% go with gold or platinum bodies. So, a gold or platinum round diamond engagement ring is the safest selection.

Let Your Personality Pick Your Promise Ring

For those of you still overthinking your engagement plans, this Promise Ring Quiz unveils the best bands for you based on your lifestyle, interests, and personality—the most accurate assessment possible.
