Aside from the clear type of diamond, there are many different colour shades and the pink diamond is definitely the most popular for an engagement ring. Of course, there are varying shades of pink, from the lightest pale shade to a deep raspberry colour and as Diamonds.co.nz showcases pink diamonds, they are the obvious choice for all New Zealanders who are looking to surprise their partner with a unique type of engagement ring. Pink diamonds have come to represent romance and femininity and ever since Jennifer Lopez received a huge 6.1 carat pink diamond engagement ring from Ben Affleck in 2004, pink diamonds have become even more popular.
The Rarity of Pink Diamonds
There are very few diamond mines where pink diamonds can be found, and Western Australia’s Argyle mine is by far the most prolific producer of pink diamonds in the world. The scarceness of such stones obviously adds to the value and if you are at all unsure about the style of ring to buy your fiancée, you really can’t go wrong if you select pink diamonds in a unique setting.
Reputable Online Jewellers
None of us have the time to drive around looking at various jewellery retail outlets and by far the best way to source a suitable engagement ring is to search for a reputable online jeweller. You might be thinking that it is risky to buy expensive items online, but with a reputable jeweller, you will be given GIA certification to ensure the stone is in fact genuine. Prices tend to be a little cheaper when buying online, as the jeweller does not have the huge overheads of a retail outlet in the select area of the city and hence, prices reflect this.
Choosing the Right Setting
Once you have made the decision to opt for a pink diamond engagement ring, your next choice is the type of setting. There are many different types of engagement ring settings and each has its pros and cons, which need to be factored into your decision. If, for example, she is an active girl who enjoys outdoor activities, then you should opt for a setting with no prongs, which does not catch on fabric and is generally regarded as more secure. A bezel setting is ideal, as it allows more light to pass through the diamond, making it look more attractive. The absence of raised prongs gives you a better level of security.
If you have been looking into many engagement rings but don’t yet see anything that really takes your fancy, you can have the ring custom-made by an established jeweller and with such an important occasion, having a unique ring is very fitting. Your bride-to-be will be overjoyed at receiving such a unique ring that will be an eternal reminder of your undying love for each other.
