Selecting the Perfect Engagement Ring

Selecting the perfect engagement ring

Choosing an engagement ring can be tough, especially if you're not sure what type of ring you want to buy. There are many different styles, diamonds, and engravings to choose from. Finding the perfect ring can take time, but you can speed up the process by using the tips below!

Choosing the Style

First, you should consider what kind of person your soon-to-be fiancé is; are they modern or traditional? Outdoorsy or romantic? Do they have an outgoing personality? No matter what their style is, you will certainly find a ring that suits them at Van Gundy Jewelers.

  • Solitaire: Stun her with its elegance! This ring features one single stone centered atop a metal band. This style of engagement ring is among the most popular. If your loved one is more traditional or classic, this ring will suit them perfectly.
  • Halo: This ring will go well with their outgoing personality! This style of ring features one large diamond, surrounded by a "halo" of smaller diamonds. If she loves to shine and be a fashion forward woman, she will certainly love a halo ring.
  • Antique: Send her to the past! If your partner is romantic and vintage, an antique style ring will suit her well. This style of ring can feature a variety of different engravings and details. An antique ring will stand out in our modern world.
  • Pave: Shine bright like a diamond! This beautiful ring style features many stones packed closely together, giving the illusion of one large diamond. If your lover loves to sparkle, this is the ring for her!

Choosing the Ring On Time

Deciding on which ring you want to purchase can take time. Some jewelers offer custom rings which can take anywhere from 3-4 weeks to complete. They may offer to complete your ring sooner, but if the process is rushed you could end up with a poorly made piece. If you need your ring soon, purchasing a ring directly from a bridal jewelry shop would be the best option for you.

With Van Gundy Jewelers, you have two different family owned shops you can choose from to visit for the perfect engagement ring; one in Ventura, and the other in Camarillo, California. We offer a variety of different marriage, wedding, and engagement pieces that are sure to fit whatever style you decide on.  Click here to view our brands!
