Not many of us know that the world famous Hatton Garden Jewellers district in London is the perfect place to begin your search when thinking about popping the question to your better half.

History shows us that the world famous diamond district has been around since the 1840s so the jewellers working there today definitely know what they are talking about with many of them working in the family business since they were fresh out of school. Trust is something you can rely on when, for example, paying a visit to one of the most established diamond jewellers in the Hatton Garden area, named Finecraft Diamonds. They offer some of the best styles and custom design rings and jewellery in the area with prices to match.

The first thing to consider when planning the proposal is:

The Ring

Well, that one was obvious. In order to pick the right ring for your future bride is to know what style of ring (colour of gold, shape of diamond, band width etc) suits her style and hand. Deciding on this is essential to making that moment really special. Some of the options you can choose can be a delicate band if her hand is small and a rose gold band if she’s very classic and has lighter toned skin.

Go with your gut feeling

If you spot the ring of your (and your future bride’s) dreams then just go for it. The likelyhood that it’s out of your price range is very low so if you love it, go for it. If you do find that its not the price you were thinking about spending then maybe you can find a jeweller that will make the ring for you at a fraction of the price that you saw it in a famous jewellery shop.

Many Hatton Garden jewellers for example, offer bespoke designs and can be tailored to your budget. So, don’t be disheartened if you find a ring out of your league, there’s always a way of getting the right ring for you in the budget you have.

Ring size

Try to get an idea of the ring size of your love before you set out. This will help when you’re in the planning stages of the ring purchasing process.  The ring size can determine which stone or setting best fit the finger so try to get as close as possible.  It doesn’t matter if you can’t get it exact, if it’s not the right size, a diamond jewellery shop with a jewellery workshop on-site can help to get that resized as quick as possible.

We hope this expert guide has helped make you feel more confident in your ring choice when planning a proposal.
