The Ultimate Guide To Buying Men’s Engagement Rings 

It’s no secret that men’s engagement rings have been growing in popularity in recent years. We’re here to help you find the perfect one for you or your partner.

The Ultimate Guide To Buying Men's Engagement Rings

A Short History Of Men’s Engagement Rings 

Men have been wearing rings for centuries to express their wealth and status. However, it wasn’t until more modern times that men started wearing jewelry to represent love and their relationship status. Men’s wedding rings have essentially become a staple of male fashion and accessories around the world, but it wasn’t until the 90s that engagement rings for men became popular. Even more recently, men began expressing themselves with diamond engagement rings and those made from alternative metals. 

Wedding Ring Vs. Engagement Ring

One of the two key differences between wedding and engagement rings is their symbolism and when they’ll be worn. For wedding bands, it’s all in the name – typically wedding rings are first worn for the first time on the day of the actual wedding. These rings are usually given from partner to partner to symbolize the beginning of their married life together and the recognition of a lifelong commitment.  

An engagement ring receives a lot more hype and attention and is usually worn from the time of the proposal. An engagement ring, in every way, symbolizes intent and also creates excitement for the couple and their loved ones.  

Wedding Rings Vs Engagement Rings

Buying Men’s Engagement Rings 

Just like any piece of jewelry, there are several factors to keep in mind before completing your purchase. Naturally, the buying process will be pretty different for yourself or your partner. Here’s what you need to keep in mind when buying a men’s engagement ring:

Understanding Your Partner’s Style 

They’re the ones who’re going to be wearing the ring so it’s important to know what they want. So get started by:

  • Talking to friends and family to get an idea of their dream ring
  • Find a way to slyly find out their interests – but be careful not to spoil anything!
  • Look at their other jewelry or style in general to get an idea of a ring that would fit

Set A Budget 

Men’s engagement rings come in all sizes and types, which also means they also come with a wide variety of price tags. It’s important to know your personal budget that will align with what your partner has in mind. You can find more basic engagement rings for men that will cost less than $1,000 but when adding diamonds that price will increase significantly. 

Make sure to take the gem type and amount (if opting for more than basic) as well as the metal type into account when budgeting for the ring. 

Ring Size

Getting their ring size correct and even in secret can be a little tricky. Read our guide below on how to measure your ring size at home.

Metal Types 

There is no shortage of materials when it comes to finding the perfect men’s engagement ring. Let’s break them all down:

  • Titanium: amazingly lightweight while also being incredibly strong, you can find more traditional and unique rings with intricate designs in this metal type that is available in standard titanium or black titanium
  • Ceramic: considered cutting-edge technology for men’s rings, ceramic is durable, scratch-resistant, and lightweight
  • Cobalt Chrome: four times harder than gold and scratch resistant while coming in both white and black options makes this metal type a great choice
  • White Gold: a modern color with many traditional and modern choices to explore
  • Yellow Gold: traditional, timeless, and offered in a myriad of styles and designs, you can’t go wrong with a yellow gold men’s engagement ring
  • Rose Gold: a beautiful choice for a man looking for a modern and unique engagement ring option
  • Platinum: an excellent alternative to other metals, platinum is rarer than gold and very long-lasting
  • Tungsten Carbide: uniquely forged to be extremely strong and scratch-resistant, perfect for a man with a more active lifestyle
  • Tantalum: this strong, dark-gray metal creates a very sleek and modern engagement ring for men

Diamond Or Gemstone 

Engagement rings for men come in all shapes and sizes, and yes, they sparkle, too! But do you want a traditional diamond or a gemstone ring? We’re taking a look at the pros and cons of each.

DiamondGemstone
Pros– Classic and timeless appeal– Wide range of colors for personalization
– Durable and resistant to scratching– Unique and eye-catching appearance
– Symbolizes eternal love and commitment– Often more affordable than diamonds
– Higher resale value– Symbolic meanings attached to specific stones
Cons– Expensive initial cost– Less durable than diamonds, prone to scratching
– Limited color options– Limited resale value
– Can be seen as traditional or mainstream– May not convey traditional wedding symbolism for some

How to Wear A Men’s Engagement Ring 

We’re here to tell you that the way to wear your engagement ring is in whatever comfortable fashion you like. If you want to keep it traditional- wear your ring on your ring finger on the left hand. If you want to wear it on a different finger, be sure to measure your ring size, or your partner’s ring size, to get an accurate fit.

Men’s Engagement Ring Styles

Men’s engagement rings are just as much an expression of personal style and unique characteristics as women’s engagement rings. You need to take this into consideration before you buy your partner their engagement ring.

From traditional classic bands to diamond wedding rings and even carved rings, there’s a style, metal color, and ring setting for every man and their lifestyle.

What do your partner’s personality and tastes say about their unique style?

How To Clean Your Engagement Ring

  1. Warm water + dish soap + soft toothbrush.
    Make your own ring cleaner by filling a bowl with warm (not hot) water, and then adding a few drops of dish soap. Put your jewelry in the mixture and let it sit for 15 minutes. Afterward, take your ring out of the bowl and scrub it clean with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Rinse, dry with a soft towel, and lay out on a soft surface to dry.
  2. Polishing cloth.
    In a pinch, a normal microfiber cloth will do. However, specialty jewelers’ cloths are the best, since they contain particular cleaning compounds formulated to both polish and remove small scratches in your ring. 

FAQs

Can you customize men’s engagement rings?

When shopping for engagement rings for men online you can customize many aspects of the ring such as metal type, the design, whether to include gemstones, and the fit (such as comfort fit). Additionally, you can add an engravement to the ring to add that extra level of customization for yourself or your partner. 

Do men’s engagement rings always have diamonds, or can they have other gemstones?

You can find men’s engagement rings with or without diamonds, with diamonds of different colors such as black, or with gemstones such as sapphires. There are many different styles and variations of rings to choose from. 

How do I determine the right size for a men’s engagement ring?

There are several different ways to get the perfect ring size. You’re looking to find the circumference of the ring, generally in millimeters. The standard scale ranges from 8-15, with half sizes in between to help find the perfect fit.

You can use a measuring tape around your finger, or if this is for your partner you can measure one of their other rings. You can also request a ring sizer that we’ll send you directly by mail.

James Allen Presents True Hearts™ Diamonds: Get The Ultimate Sparkle

In the market for a perfectly cut diamond for less? Introducing the True Hearts™ Lab Grown Diamond collection.

Round True Hearts Diamonds

Are you gearing up to pop the question to your significant other and still deciding on an engagement ring? If you’re been exploring our website, you may be familiar with our exclusive collection of True Hearts™ diamonds and our budget-friendly but brilliant lab grown diamonds.

Good news: for the first time ever, it’s your chance to score the best of both with our brand new collection of True Hearts™ Lab Grown diamonds. Curious? Keep reading to get the down-low.

What Are True Hearts™ Diamonds?

When looking for a diamond cut with perfect precision, proportions, and symmetry, look no further than a True Hearts™ diamond.

How do we get the best cut? Our True Hearts™ collection is crafted by the crème de la crème of diamond cutters and features a one-of-a-kind pattern that resembles hearts and arrows.

Just in case you were wondering, this exceptional cut also results in facet positioning that acts like tiny mirrors, which contributes to its off-the-charts sparkle.

P.S: fewer than 1% of the world’s diamonds qualify as True Hearts™ diamonds.

Why Choose A True Hearts™ Lab Grown Diamond?

When you choose a True Hearts™ diamond, your stone can appear larger than other diamonds of the same size.

Why? A superior-cut diamond will offer better angles and symmetry, which allows light to refract more effectively.

Lesser cut diamonds will “swallow” their light, making them look smaller and giving off less sparkle and brilliance.

What To Look For In A True Hearts™ Diamond

Interested in purchasing a True Hearts™ round cut diamond? Keep the following tips in mind:

  • Consistency in the hearts and arrows pattern. You should see eight hearts and eight arrows, each the same size.
  • Even color saturation. Each red, black, and white hearts and arrow pattern should exhibit similar color distribution.
  • Optical symmetry is key. A symmetrical hearts and arrows pattern will result in maximum light return. 

In addition to round diamonds, our True Hearts™ collection is also available in princess and cushion cuts.

Natural Vs. Lab Grown Diamonds

You may be wondering: What is a lab grown diamond and how is it different from natural diamonds? We’re here to clarify a few points before you decide if a True Hearts Lab Grown Diamond™ is right for you.

Lab diamonds are optically and chemically identical to natural diamonds. The only difference between the two is their origin.

  • Natural diamonds are sourced from below the earth’s surface.
  • Lab grown diamonds are created in simulated ‘below-ground’ conditions in a lab.

Needless to say, producing the special carbon arrangement of natural diamonds is intense. We’re talking high heat and super high pressure. Plus, very few places in the world are capable of producing earth created diamonds.

10 Best Simple Engagement Rings for 2023 

Ah, the beauty of a simple engagement ring! If you do it right, you don’t have to go over the top. After all, diamonds are the only way to achieve incredible sparkle. Simple engagement rings come in a huge range of designs. You can be assured that less is more.

What makes an engagement ring “simple”? For the most part, it means that it’s free of the more glitzy ring features such as pavè, engraved designs, halos, and multiple accent stones. Simple engagement rings are all about clean lines while also incorporating a limited amount of diamonds and gemstones.

This is the fun part: there are SO MANY types of simple engagement rings! Check them out below, and don’t forget to add your favorite to your wishlist on JamesAllen.com

Back To Basics

The Benefits of Minimalist Engagement Rings

  1. Maintaining fewer diamonds is easier

More diamonds mean more sparkle but also more maintenance. Accent stones trap dirt and require regular cleaning, and the multiple prongs require tightening by a jeweler twice a year. The bottom line is: simple engagement rings are perfect for the no-fuss wearer.

  1. All eyes on your diamond

Go all in on an eye-popping center stone. It will take center stage! There’s little to distract from your sparkling stone. Plus, with the money you save on accent stones, you can invest to the fullest in your dream diamond.

  1. Your wedding ring has more pairing options

A simple engagement ring complements absolutely any style of a wedding ring. Your wedding set will look fabulous no matter which wedding ring to choose. Keep it simple? Glitz it up? Add gemstones? Play with diamond shapes? Yes yes yes yes. Flex your creativity!

  1. Easier on the wallet

Less overall glitz means that there’s less upfront cost. There’s no need to spend a large part of your ring budget on a diamond-studded band. This frees you up to invest the lion’s share of your money in an incredible center diamond or gemstone! Pro tip: go for a lab created diamond to get a 30% larger diamond while staying in-budget!

We’ve put together a walk-through of our best and most creative simple engagement ring styles.

Solitaire Engagement Rings

Everyone loves the classics. And with good reason! Solitaire engagement rings are said to be the most simple engagement rings yet they remain perfectly elegant and timeless. The rings highlight the single-center diamond or gemstone like no other.

14K White Gold 2mm Knife Edge Solitaire Engagement Ring

Unique Diamond Shapes

Diamonds come in a variety of stunning shapes, so if you’re thinking of adding some kind of wow factor to your simple engagement ring – this may be the way to go!  While round and princess cut diamonds are usually the most popular shapes for engagement rings, this may not appeal to every person.  

A simple band or ring setting will easily complement any diamond shape. Pick the one your heart desires, whether it be cushion, emerald, oval, Asscher, marquise, or pear. 

Platinum 2mm Comfort Fit Solitaire Engagement Ring
14K White Gold Petite Solitaire Heart Shape Diamond Ring

Three Stone Diamond Engagement Ring

Three stone engagement rings are the perfect way to keep it simple while still getting your diamond fix. The elegant combination of a large center stone and two smaller, identical side stones is undeniably minimalist. And yet, all those facets sparkle bright!

Now you may be thinking, how does this three stone engagement ring avoid overwhelming the eye? By sticking with a simple round cut diamond, you get a symmetrical, straightforward, and stunning ring.

Bezel-Set Engagement Rings

Did you know that bezel-set engagement rings are the second most popular ring setting? Why, you ask? Well, this is mainly because of its simplicity and modern look. It is also known to be the perfect ring for people who lead an active lifestyle.

This type of setting provides excellent security and protection for the center stone. It’s so versatile that it perfectly accommodates every diamond shape. Did we mention bezel set engagement rings will never snag on fabric?

Gemstone Engagement Rings

These simple engagement rings are rich in gorgeous hues. For anyone who thinks “simple” is a synonym for “plain,” our gemstone engagement rings will prove otherwise.

Gemstone engagement rings aren’t a new trend. In fact, for centuries, we’ve seen the most glamorous royals and celebrities styled in all kinds of gemstone jewelry. Unlike diamonds, unique gemstones come in a variety of colors, so regardless of the setting or style, gemstones make stunning center stones. Ever considered a sapphire engagement ring?

Split Shank Engagement Rings

Looking for a simple, yet unique engagement ring? You’ve come to the right place! There are various types of split shank engagement rings, but the most common is where the shank (band) splits into two. This creates two separate metal pieces that stem from the center diamond.

Its sophisticated look has won over many A-list brides including Beyoncé, Megan Fox, and Blake Lively. 

18K Yellow Gold Classic Split Shank Solitaire Diamond Engagement Ring

Swirl And Twisted Bands

A simplistic design but not too basic. These bands aren’t packed with diamonds, but they are packed with plenty of personality! Swirl and twisted bands typically feature a prong setting where the metal band is crafted in a way that gives off a half-circular “swirl” effect around the center stone.

The result is a modern, unique look boasting a highly secure setting.  Whether you’re looking for a striking and minimalistic engagement ring or a thin dual band elegantly twisted together to achieve a natural “woven” look, the options are endless.

FAQs

What is the most important factor to consider when selecting a simple engagement ring?

When shopping for a simple engagement ring, the 4Cs should be prioritized by the color of the diamond.

Can I add stones to my simple engagement ring later on?

Yes. The classic solitaire setting is the perfect fit for a simple engagement band, especially if you intend to set diamonds later on. Experts suggest that if you are considering this, make sure the band is thick enough to accommodate diamonds later.

Can an engagement ring be a plain band?

Yes. Engagement rings can be any type of ring type or setting. It’s most important to choose a style that you or your partner will enjoy wearing.

Coveraquamarine Jewelry Feat. The March Birthstone Blog

Aquamarine Jewelry feat. the March Birthstone

Hey, what are you waiting for? Aquamarine jewelry, that’s what! Learn more about the meaning behind these March birthstone jewelry pieces and find the perfect aquamarine gift for a March birthday.

March Birthstone

What Is The March Birthstone?

Aquamarine, the March birthstone, evokes the clarity and serenity of ocean waters – literally. Its name comes from the Latin “aqua marinus,” which means “water of the sea.” Aquamarine is a blue variant of the beryl family, which includes other distinctly colored gemstones like pink morganite, golden heliodor, and green emerald. Why the spectrum of hues?

Each color variation is thanks to specific trace mineral and metal content; in the case of aquamarine, iron ions (Fe2+ and Fe3+, to be precise) tint the otherwise colorless beryl to a clear, watery blue. This blue gemstone ranges in color across the spectrum, from pale to deep azure. What’s consistent, however, is this gemstone’s exceptional clarity.

Aquamarine Birthstone Symbolism And History

What better way to celebrate the first month of spring than with a slice of clear blue sky? Aquamarine jewelry symbolizes tranquility, serenity, and good luck. Ancient Greek sailors used to carry aquamarine aboard their ships to ensure smooth journeys at sea – and protect them against drowning. Nowadays, it’s still a symbol of protection, with many people carrying it with them for good health. They’re perfect for those days when you need to shout, “SERENITY NOW!” That’s because the March birthstone has historically been worn in order to soothe the wearer’s temper and to nurture love. 

What Is The March Birthstone Color?

Aquamarine naturally occurs in hexagonal facets, which catch a spectacular amount of light. Its blue is exceptionally bright. Plus, it’s a 7.5–8 on the Mohs scale, making it a perfect choice for strong, durable birthstone jewelry that stands up well to daily wear. So whether or not you’re a March baby, the aquamarine is a stunning blue gemstone that deserves to be a centerpiece of any jewelry collection.

Celebrity Aquamarine Jewelry

And don’t forget about the celebrity endorsements. Celebs have been rocking aquamarine jewelry since – forever! Lucille Ball flaunted a 40-carat multi-faceted aquamarine ring from Desi Arnaz. Jessica Biel’s now-husband Justin Timberlake proposed with a whopping 6-carat center diamond accented with two aquamarine side stones. And Princess Diana was an ardent fan of the March birthstone. She had a jaw-dropping collection of aquamarine jewelry, whose standouts included pear-cut aquamarine earrings, a huge emerald-cut aquamarine ring, and a pearl and aquamarine bracelet. 

Lucille Bill aquamarine ring

Aquamarine is a beautiful accent stone, but it deserves to take center stage in its own right. At James Allen, we believe people don’t wear aquamarine enough! Its “pale blue” hue, despite its name, is anything but lackluster. It’s radiant! Aquamarine’s distinct color, combined with its characteristic light-grabbing hexagonal faces, means that this bright and vibrant jewel is perfectly suited to be worn as a center stone. 

So here are just a few of our most eye-catching, aquamarine-forward pieces. Happy March!

This ring is the definition of understated glitter. An elegant oval-cut aquamarine is set in the sideways “east-west” position, which though less common than a vertical setting, is not at all less lovely. Two tiny diamonds, nestled in the crooks of the split shank, beautifully set off the brilliance of the center aquamarine.

There’s a reason that the simple pleasures in life are enjoyed more often. And this simple pleasure comes in yellow gold! This is a piece that’s classic enough to match with any of your existing rings, perfect for stacking, and will handle anything your life throws at it. The double-floored basket allows light to hit this 0.25-carat round-cut aquamarine center stone from every angle: top, side, and bottom. Meaning, this delicate blue gemstone will positively glow on your finger.

Slender Aquamarine
Birthstone Ring

Place this slender, goes-with-anything 0.10-carat aquamarine birthstone ring on your finger for some extra confidence before you head out the door in the morning. Its thin band makes it ideal as a stacking ring. Mix and match it up with other metals, stones, and styles for an impressive ring stack.

The February Birthstone: Amazing Amethyst

Don royal purple with the February birthstone: amethyst! This unusually-hued gemstone will make any wearer into an instant queen.

 

February Birthstone

Amethyst jewelry is the go-to purchase for February birthdays and Valentine’s gifts. The February birthstone is stunning yet graceful, rewarding those bold enough to wear it with plenty of turned heads!

What is the Birthstone for February?

It’s amethyst! Amethyst is a violet type of quartz, the crystalline mineral silicon dioxide. This is a great jewelry gemstone, as it’s not only gorgeous, but also sufficiently resilient to withstand day-to-day wear. It rates a 7 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, indicating that it’s pretty difficult to scratch. Amethyst is a jewel that’s ready to keep up with your active lifestyle.

The History of Amethyst

Amethyst isn’t only good in the form of birthstone jewelry. This gemstone takes its name from the ancient Greek belief that it could protect its bearer from poison and drunkenness: a- (not) + methysko (intoxicating). Not only was amethyst worn as talismanic jewelry, but it was also carved into cups to prevent over-tipsiness.

With all due respect to the ancient Greeks, we disagree. Amethyst is positively intoxicating!

How to Style Amethyst

Purple can be a tricky color to style, and a trickier one to style well. When it comes to amethyst, it looks best when paired with certain colors of clothes.

  • similar shades of purple
  • neutral shades: black, white, gray, silver or gold.

As for who can wear amethyst, everyone’s in luck. Amethystian purple hedges both cool and warm tones, and as such it complements any complexion. Jewelry-wearers of the world, rejoice! This is your sign to rock amethyst jewelry.

Who Wears Amethyst?

Perhaps because of its royal connotations, but most certainly because of its beauty, amethyst is a solid favorite among red carpet celebrities. And as you can see, stars like Diane Kruger and Zoe Saldana are also fans of pairing their jewels with purple fabrics.

Zoe Saldana - Amethyst February Birthstone

The Value of Amethyst Birthstone

Amethyst is valued primarily by the quality of its color rather than its carat weight. Meaning that you can score a heftily-sized gemstone for a much more reasonable price than other jewels. 

Amethyst Stone Meaning

The February gemstone is also rife with meaning. In the past, Tibetan Buddhist monks considered it holy and carved prayer beads from it and English royalty reserved it for themselves due to its sacred properties. And amethyst became the February birthstone thanks to the legendary St. Valentine, who donned an amethyst ring as he performed illicit marriages; this eventually led to the modern-day practice of gifting amethyst jewelry on Valentine’s Day. Modern-day lore claims that it is a powerful protective stone with cognitive and emotional stimulating properties.

Amethyst Rings

Deck your digits with a purple ring or two (or three), so you can punctuate every gesture with lavender. Choose a small stone for everyday wearing and stacking, or pump up the purple and go crazy with an oversized amethyst cocktail ring.

Petite Amethyst
Birthstone Ring

“Perfect in every way. I chose this for my 9 year old daughter, and she was beyond bedazzled with it. The metal and the gemstone are beautiful.”
– Johanna T.

Doubled Amethyst
and Diamond Ring

“A beautifully designed ring! The few diamonds on the ring next to the amethyst are a subtle compliment overall.”
-Marcin B.

Amethyst Earrings

Frame your face with two delicate purple gemstones. Amethyst earrings look particularly lovely on wearers with blue and brown eyes. And of course, they’re absolutely plum-colored stunning on those with violet-colored irises!

Cultured Pearl
and Amethyst Earrings

“The earrings were well made and delicate. My wife loved it as a birthday gift.”
– Felipe S.

Oval-Cut Amethyst
Stud Earrings

“This was a gift for my daughter-in-law and she was very happy.”
– Josette B.

Amethyst Necklaces

A single amethyst worn around the neck is known to protect its wearer from boring jewelry choices. Flaunt your unique personal style with a unique purple gemstone, set in precious metal.

7 Ways to Drop A Hint – And Get Your Perfect Engagement Ring

How do you tell your partner exactly what engagement ring you want without sacrificing the element of surprise? We’ve got the pro tips you’re looking to drop a hint.

7 Ways to Drop A Hint and Get Your Perfect Engagement Ring

So your engagement is in the air! Maybe you’ve talked about it at length, maybe you just know that the time is nigh, but however you know – you need a ring to get it done

Many people, although they know exactly which ring they want, aren’t sure how to get the message across to their partner without spoiling the surprise. That “OMG!” face just can’t be faked, after all! 

It’s a tricky tightrope to walk between planned and unplanned. On the one hand, it’s crucial that both partners are on the same page regarding wanting to get married. On the other hand, popping the question – as the phrase implies – is an exciting, explosive event. To many, it’s just as crucial to creating the toe-tingling, je-ne-se-quois atmosphere of an unexpected proposal. 

Most of the below tips can be dropped subtly or obviously, and we’ll tell you how.

Use James Allen’s Drop-A-Hint Feature

Good for when: 

  • You know exactly what you want

JamesAllen.com comes with a ready-made suggestion feature. Above each ring on the site is a small heart-shaped icon.  Simply click on this “Drop a Hint” icon and you’ll be prompted to choose a platform over which to send your hint: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Gmail. Or, you can simply copy the link and send it however you’d like.

14K Gold Two Tone Ribbon Bypass Solitaire Engagement Ring

“Everyone was impressed with the ring. It was simple but elegant. The tension band highlighted the diamond.” -Karine I.

Try James Allen’s Wishlist Feature

Good for when:

  • You and your partner are looking for a ring together
  • You love more than one ring
14K Rose Gold Pavé Twist Diamond Engagement Ring

“Photos don’t ever do rings justice, but let me say this ring sparkles even in the darkest of nights. You will have heads turning.” -Monica L.

Sometimes it’s hard just to pick one ring! If you’re in love with more than one exquisite sparkler, here’s what you should do:

  1. Create a JamesAllen.com account
  2. Browse ring candidates
  3. Click on the heart icon beside the “select this setting” button on any ring page to add that particular model to your wishlist
  4. Give your partner your JamesAllen.com password 
  5. They see your wishlist and surprise you with one of your dream rings!

Pro tip: This is a way to get the best of both worlds: you get a ring you love + you don’t know which one you’ll get! Surprise ensured.

Use Pinterest To Drop A Hint

Good for when: 

  • You’re an avid, organized researcher

Pinterest is an incredible tool for dropping a hint! There are two ways to use Pinterest to drop a hint:

  1. Save specific rings to your “Engagement Ring” Pinterest board, just as you would on your James Allen wishlist.
  2. Save engagement ring characteristics on different boards, and then let your partner choose the ring themselves. 

Let’s focus on option #2. For each characteristic, make a titled board. For example, you may want a yellow gold solitaire engagement ring with a high, diamond-encrusted basket. In this case, you’ll make 4 boards: “Yellow Gold Rings,” “Solitaire Engagement Rings,” “Rings with High Baskets,” and “Rings with Diamond Baskets.” 

Diamond Pave Basket Engagement Ring

14K Yellow Gold Diamond Pave Basket Engagement Ring

“Beautiful, blindingly shiny! The pave on the basket is so unique, we love how it lets the solitaire diamond take center stage when viewing the ring from the top, but adds extra sparkle from the side.” – Joshua L.

Pave Adorned Cathedral Engagement Ring

14K White Gold Pave Adorned Cathedral Engagement Ring

“As it glistens on her hand, she smiles. This ring was everything she wanted, and it makes me happy to see her happy. Looks great, fits great, and putting it on for the first time is unforgettable.” -Marcus S.

Don’t forget to get your partner to follow you on Pinterest! Either tell them up-front what your profile name is, or get a good friend to tip them off.

Pro tip: For specifics on how to use Pinterest to the fullest, read up on Using Pinterest To Find Your Partner’s Dream Ring.

Drop A Hint On Instagram

Good for when: 

  • You’ve got a good community on social media.

Are you and your partner both on Instagram? Or do you have a good friend who can pass along your messages? Whenever you see a choice engagement ring on IG, tag your special someone. 

Pro tip: Here’s a good start: follow @jamesallenrings on Instagram. Every James Allen post includes the specific model name and number so your follower(s) know exactly what to look for. 

Triple Diamond Engagement Ring

14K Yellow Gold Triple Diamond Engagement Ring

“These diamonds dance with the light with the slightest movement of my finger! The triple white diamonds on each side are the perfect compliment to the yellow diamond. The package box my beautiful ring came in is like none I have ever seen!” -Debra H.

Graduated Pavé Engagement Ring

14K White Gold Graduated Pavé Engagement Ring

“My ring is even more stunning in person compared to the photos online. I whole-heartedly recommend this style for someone who loves antique/traditional styles but still wants something different.” – Anne S.

The Double Date

Good for when: 

  • Your partner’s perceptive 
  • You’ve got mutual friends with good taste.

Go out on a double date with engaged/married friends, preferably ones who are in on your drop-a-hint plan. Now it’s go time: strike up a conversation about engagement rings! Compliment the ring they chose, ask them what they like about it, and most importantly: talk about the specific elements of their ring that you love. Your partner will definitely get the hint. 

Feel free to punctuate this conversation with heavy winks and emphatic throat-clearing.

Pro tip: this doesn’t necessarily have to be a date with an engaged friend. It also works with a mutual friend, so long as you talk about engagement rings in general.

Channel Set Engagement Ring

14K Rose Gold Channel Set Princess Cut Diamond Engagement Ring

“The diamonds in the channel are the perfect petite size but still dazzle. Paired with the main stone it turned out better than I had hoped. She fell in love with the ring. Couldn’t be happier.” – Edgar L.

Accents Pavé Engagement Ring

14K White Gold Marquise Diamond Accents Pave Basket Engagement Ring

“This ring is gorgeous! The diamond sits up much higher than I thought it would. It looks fantastic though. The way the ring is put together, with the diamond sitting so high, really makes the diamond stand out.” – Amber L.

Tell a friend

Good for when:

  • Your partner is well-meaning, but not so perceptive.

Enlist a good friend’s help to drop a hint! Tell them exactly what you want. Include links, photos, and celebrity engagement ring examples, as well as a sub-list of ring elements that you definitely don’t want in your ring.

Cathedral Pavé Engagement Ring

14K Yellow Gold Cathedral Pave Halo Diamond Engagement Ring

“Absolutely stunning ring. Everyone who sees it is complementary and thinks it is much larger than it is!” -Meagan L.

Magnolia Engagement Ring

14K Rose Gold Magnolia Engagement Ring

“I love how the princess cut diamond is put cocked, it makes it look so different than other rings I’ve looked at!” – Kay M.

Write a list

Good for when: 

  • Your partner really doesn’t want to make a mistake!

Ok, so your partner needs a little help. Writing a list is a good way to drop a hint and let your partner know the nuances of your ring preferences. This is more than a simple collection of rings; writing a detailed list lets them know where they have a bit of wiggle room to be creative.

Elements of a good engagement ring list:

  1. Specific ring models. You can rank your list of preferences or let your partner know that you love them all equally. Either way, be sure to specify your level of desire for each ring.
  2. A list of must-have ring elements
  3. A list of must-NOT-have ring elements

Pro tip: Accompany your list with a little love note and get creative with how you deliver it; text, email, or a hand-written letter!  No miscommunications, no way.

Channel Set Diamond Engagement Ring

14K White Gold Channel Set Round Shaped Diamond Engagement Ring

“Spoiler Alert! This ring is bold and makes quite the statement. IF you like flashy rings, this is perfect for you. I am very happy with it, just know it’s a lot of bling!” – Maxine L.

Three Stone Scroll Undergallery Engagement Ring

14K Yellow Gold Three Stone Diamond Engagement Ring With Scroll Undergallery

“I really love this ring, simple but stunning. I just can’t stop looking at it, especially those 4 perfect heart prongs around the middle diamond.” -Jane O.

Ring In The New

Choosing a ring while keeping the mystery alive is no easy feat. But there are ways to do it – and well. Use some of JamesAllen.com’s built-in features to virtually wink-wink at your partner, use social media, recruit friends, or write an old-fashioned list!

And if you’re really in a pickle, don’t hesitate to reach out to our legendary customer service team. They’re available 24-7 and have a trove of ring ideas.

Blog Gia Certification Cover (1)

Your GIA Certification, Explained

A GIA certification is an official document detailing the nitty-gritty of your unique diamond. Why’s it important? Read on to find out.

GIA Certification

First of all, what’s a GIA certification?

A GIA certification (so named because it’s issued by the Gemological Institute of America) is a type of diamond certification: a document that describes in detail all the unique characteristics of your diamond. An official GIA inspector analyzes your diamond thoroughly and records its physical attributes in the certificate. The 4 C’s (Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat Weight) are covered exhaustively. No two diamonds will have identical GIA certificates.

In short, you can think of a GIA certification as your diamond’s “birth certificate.” 

Martini Diamond Stud Earrings

14K Yellow Gold Three Prong Martini Round Brilliant Diamond Stud Earrings (1.00 CTW - H-I / SI1-SI2)

“What I’m most pleased with is how sparkly the diamonds are. I’m so glad I chose the 3 prong martini style, they don’t stick out or droop. They fit as flush to the ear as possible if that’s the look you’d prefer.” -Joyce J.

Four-Prong Diamond Stud Earrings

14K White Gold Four Prong Round Brilliant Lab Created Diamond Stud Earrings (1.50 CTW - F-G / VS2-SI1)

“I absolutely love my new earring studs! I was able to style them exactly how I wanted using the stones and metal I wanted. Couldn’t ask for a better experience.” -Matt T.

Is a GIA certification important? 

Well, yes and no. 

Yes: The GIA certification allows gemologists to identify, price, and appraise your diamond. By documenting its one-of-a-kind characteristics, a diamond certificate ensures that your stone is unmistakable.

No: You wear a diamond for the sparkle, not the certification. The GIA certification often comes in handy at the beginning of your diamond’s life – as you buy, appraise, and insure your diamond – then usually spends the rest of its days in a file cabinet.

To really understand the aspects of your diamond described in the GIA certification, you have to see them with your own eyes. With James Allen’s Diamond Display technology, you can view your diamond in 360° HD and up to 40x magnification. Then you’ll truly understand your diamond’s features.

Four-Prong Basket Solitaire Diamond Pendant

14K Yellow Gold Four Prong Basket Solitaire Diamond Pendant (Mounting)

“More incredible than I could have hoped! I have to say, I am so impressed! This design is just perfect and really lets the diamond “shine,” literally and figuratively.” – Maggie L.

Mounted Pear Shape Diamond Solitaire Pendant

14K White Gold Pear Shape Diamond Solitaire Pendant (Mounting)

“The stone is so beautiful and sparkly. I love how it is set so it shows off the shape of the pear. The workmanship is great and it was shipped quickly. I am so happy with my Diamond pendant” -Lenora L.

Your GIA Certification

The good news is that every James Allen diamond comes with an official certification. We provide reports from the industry’s leading labs including the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). Your diamond may come with a diamond certification from the GIA, the American Gem Society (AGS), or the International Gemological Institute (IGI). These labs adhere to the highest grading standards, and only issue diamond certifications certified by professional gemologists.

To get your diamond’s certificate, simply ask our customer service team! Your grading report is complementary with your diamond.

Beaded Engagement Ring

14K White Gold Bead Accent Pavé Trio Diamond Engagement Ring

“I am very happy with this ring setting. It feels very dainty and sort of vintage. I love the small details of this setting that make this ring feel unique, like the milgrain beading around the center stone.” -Noel B.

Pavé Halo Engagement Ring

14K White Gold Pavé Halo And Shank Diamond Engagement Ring (Pear Center)

“I got my ring several months ago and I still get excited every day when I see it. The ring is gorgeous and sparkly and exactly how I hoped it would look when I bought my stone!” Katrina H.

Earth Created Vs. Lab Created Diamonds?

Lab created diamonds and earth-created diamonds both come with diamond certifications. That’s because lab created diamonds and earth created diamonds are, well, diamonds. And since both grow organically (one underground, one in a lab) they both form their own unique, gradable characteristics. In fact, even professional gemologists can’t reliably tell the difference between earth-created and lab-created diamonds.

Four Prong Tennis Bracelet

14K White Gold Four Prong Lab Created Diamond Tennis Bracelet (2.00 CTW - F-G / VS2-SI1)

“I bought this bracelet as a present to myself. I extensively researched the difference between lab grown and earth diamonds and since there is no physical difference and I wanted the bigger diamonds I chose lab grown.” -Katrina D.

Bezel-Set Tennis Bracelet

14K Rose Gold Bezel Diamond Tennis Bracelet (3 CTW - H-I / SI1-SI2)

“I have always been in search of a nice diamond bezel bracelet: something that sparkles and doesn’t get caught in your clothes. This bracelet just exceeds my expectations! The diamonds sparkle, the bracelet is smooth, and overall the design is very nice! I NEVER take it off!” – Beth L.

Whether you lean towards minimalist elegance or prefer to make a bold statement, stackable rings are your ultimate accessory. In this guide, we’ll show you 9 imaginative ways to flaunt stackable rings to elevate your daily and night looks!

What Are Stackable Rings?

Stackable rings are a trendy type of jewelry designed to be worn together on the same finger or across multiple fingers. They’re thinner and more delicate than traditional rings, allowing for easy layering and customization.

Why Should You Wear Stackable Rings?

Stackable rings are a seriously fun and expressive trend. You can mix and match different metals, styles, and designs to create a unique, personalized look that suits your style. And it’s all-inclusive!

Stackable rings offer versatility and endless possibilities for expressing your creativity, whether you prefer a subtle and minimalist appearance or want to make a bold fashion statement.

Minimalist Marvel

Embrace the beauty of simplicity by layering thin bands in the same metal for an elegant and understated aesthetic. Women’s gold rings are particularly popular for minimalists.

  • Combine metals like rose gold, yellow gold, and silver to create a subtle contrast that complements your overall style.
  • Opt for delicate designs adorned with small stones or engravings for a touch of refined sophistication.

Can I stack rings on all fingers?

You can stack rings on one or multiple fingers, creating endless style variations. Just ensure the rings on each finger complement each other.

How do I prevent discomfort when stacking multiple rings?

Choose rings that fit comfortably on each finger, and avoid stacking too many thick bands on one finger. It’s all about finding the right balance.

V2 Blog James Allen X Swns Engagement Ring Story Blog Cover

Are You A “Normal” Ring Shopper?

Want to know how you compare to other ring shoppers? We can tell you thanks to this survey collaboration with SWNS.

A picture of an engaged couple. The woman has her arms wrapped around his neck and is showing off her diamond ring.

When do I know I’m ready to get married?

Half of Americans in a relationship knew they wanted to marry their partner the moment they met. In fact, that statistic holds up across genders! 46% of women and 47% of men immediately knew that their partner was the one. 

What about those who are skeptical of marriage? A third of respondents say that their current partner made them want to get married – that’s a quarter of women and half of men.

What does this mean for you? Well, there doesn’t seem to be much of a correlation between how long a couple dates and the strength of their marriage. Whatever feels right is right for you. It doesn’t particularly matter whether it takes months or years for you two to arrive at the altar. Your journey is your own, but the destination is the same for each married couple. 

A statistic answering the question: "When do I know I’m ready to get married?"

After the wedding, should I wear my wedding ring, my engagement ring, or both?

If you’re asking yourself, “How should I wear my wedding ring set?” then we’ve got news for you: there are no absolute rules regarding how to wear your rings! After the wedding, most Americans wear their wedding ring closest to their knuckle, paired with their engagement ring just over it. 

Other ring options:

  • Wear your full wedding set, but swap the order: the engagement ring closest to the knuckle, with the wedding ring further down on your finger.
  • Wear only your wedding ring

If you like your wedding ring best, or if your engagement ring tends to get in the way in your day-to-day life, then you may want to wear your wedding ring exclusively.

  • Wear only your engagement ring

Do you like your engagement ring more than your wedding band? Then leave your wedding band at home! You’re still celebrating your relationship, just with more emphasis on your sparkling center stone.

  • Wear your wedding ring and engagement ring on different hands

This can be a great choice for those whose wedding ring and engagement ring don’t sit flush. Or, on the other hand, your local tradition may dictate this. In Spain, for instance, the engagement ring usually goes on the left hand, while the wedding ring usually goes on the right. 

  • Wear your wedding ring and engagement ring on different fingers

Other than for style reasons, this choice is common for those whose fingers have changed size, particularly post-pregnancy. If this strikes a chord, remember that James Allen offers free ring resizing either via mail or in select Jared jewelry stores.

  • Wear your wedding ring and engagement ring on the right hand

In some cultures, right > left. In fact, Catholic and eastern European tradition dictates that the wedding and engagement ring both be worn on the right hand. 

All in all, only about half of respondents constantly wear their wedding rings and engagement rings together. The other half either wear only one ring or forgo wearing rings altogether.

The bottom line: you do you, boo.

How long should I save up for an engagement ring?

This is totally up to you. A quarter of Americans say they don’t believe there’s a set amount of time, while 65% of Americans believe you should save up for a year at maximum. 

However, there’s no majority consensus. How do people determine how much a ring should cost?

  • You can set your ring budget by the amount of money you can save in a certain number of months
  • You can determine a budget independent of time constraints
  • You can find your dream ring and save up until you have enough to purchase it

The time necessary to save up money is heavily dependent on both your budget and the price of your desired ring. And if your budget is inflexible, here are some options for lowering the overall cost of your ring!

Important: James Allen offers special financing options if you can’t fully afford your ring right now, but still want to get engaged ASAP!

How much should my engagement ring cost?

Just 15% of Americans believe an engagement ring should cost over $5,000. Why is this important? It means you shouldn’t feel pressured to buy an expensive ring.

If you want to splurge on an impressive ring, go for it! You can always add more diamonds to the basket and shank, upgrade to a more pricey diamond, or choose platinum as your ring metal.

On the other hand, you should know that smaller budgets are extremely common. Additionally, many people’s dream rings fall well within their ring budgets! 

If you’re operating within a smaller budget, have a look at our favorite affordable engagement rings. You and your wallet will fall in love!

Is it important to buy an expensive engagement ring?

71% of Americans don’t really care about the cost of the engagement ring.

What seems to be most important is that the ring suits the recipient. If your dream ring is priced higher than your current budget allows, there are plenty of ways to adjust your ring’s cost without compromising on appearance.

Ways to reduce the cost of your engagement ring:

  1. Choose a lab grown diamond, which can cost up to 50% less than a traditional natural diamond.
  2. Go for slightly under full carats. For instance, the price difference between a .95 carat diamond and a 1.00 carat diamond is significant, but the size difference is not noticeable to the naked eye.
  3. Choose an elongated diamond shape, which appears large for its carat weight.
  4. Want a white jewelry metal? Go for white gold rather than platinum.
  5. Compromise on color. The less colorless a diamond is, the more affordable it is. Save money on a diamond with a slightly yellow tint, then pair it with a yellow or rose gold setting. The warm jewelry metal will mask the diamond’s color and no one can tell the difference!

Should we share the cost of an engagement ring?

4 out of 10 couples share the cost of their engagement ring. An engagement ring is a big purchase! Not only can sharing the cost be a practical decision (and perhaps one that would allow for a more expensive ring), but taking this important journey together can bring a couple closer to one another.

Whether or not you share the cost of an engagement ring, here’s why we recommend designing your ring together.

Should I get a custom engagement ring or a pre-set engagement ring?

36% of ring shoppers prefer a customized engagement ring, while 26% would rather go with a pre-set ring.

Any of James Allen’s rings can be customized with your unique gemstone and jewelry metal. For additional customization with unique baskets, halos, and shanks, visit the Ring Studio.

What’s the perfect proposal?

Ring in the champagne glass? “Will You Marry Me?” written in the sky? An impromptu proposal at home?

71% of Americans prefer a traditional proposal, in which a partner gets down on one knee and pops the question. It’s traditional, but there are a thousand and one ways to do it! Customize your proposal to your hearts’ content. 

Which proposal will suit the two of you?

  • Just the two of you vs. alongside friends and family
  • A destination proposal vs. a proposal at home
  • Simple vs. extravagant
  • Impromptu vs. planned

Gabrielle Union’s Engagement Ring: The Ultimate Guide

Gabrielle Union’s Engagement Ring: The Ultimate Guide

Gabrielle Union’s Engagement Ring was revealed to the world in a breathtaking Instagram post on December 22, 2013. The actress and fashion icon received her beautiful ring from Miami Heat shooting guard and 12-time All-Star Dwayne Wade.

To add to the special moment, Dwayne Wade enlisted the help of his two children and his nephew in popping the question! Wade and Union went on to make the family affair official, getting married the next year in an elegant outdoor wedding.

But you’re here for Gabrielle Union’s engagement ring! And you’re in the right place.

You’ll find out:

  1. What style Gabrielle Union’s engagement ring is
  2. What diamond shape is Gabrielle Union’s engagement ring?
  3. How many carats is Gabrielle Union’s engagement ring?
  4. How much did Gabrielle Union’s engagement ring cost & what’s it really worth?
  5. Gabrielle Union’s engagement ring copy

What Style Is Gabrielle Union’s Engagement Ring?

Gabrielle’s engagement ring seems to have a flat solitaire band with a raised, pavé-studded basket. The solitaire band lends her ring a classic feel, while the diamond-studded basket gives the ring a surprise pop of sparkle when viewed from the side.

Solitaire engagement rings are the most popular setting among ring shoppers. Why? 2 main reasons:

  1. Solitaire engagement rings don’t distract from your center diamond! All the glitter is in your center stone.
  2. Solitaire settings save your wallet. You can invest in the center diamond of your dreams with all the money you save on the band. 

What Diamond Shape Is Gabrielle Union’s Engagement Ring?

Three cushion cut diamonds shown from different angles.

The stunning stone is an enormous cushion-cut diamond. It’s a colorless, eye-clean diamond. It’s at least an F Color with a clarity of VS1 or higher.

How Many Carats is Gabrielle Union’s Engagement Ring?

Reportedly, her diamond is an incredible 8.5 carats. And man, does it impress!

How Much Did Gabrielle Union’s Engagement Ring Cost & What’s It Really Worth?!

Gabrielle’s diamond comprises nearly the entire value of her engagement ring. Rumor has it that it cost Wade nearly $1 million! And such a gorgeous stone is truly worth every penny.

There aren’t many large-carat diamonds in less-common cuts like cushion, but compared to a similar James Allen round diamond, the $1 million valuation seems fair!

CHECK PRICE

A comparable 8 carat cushion-cut diamond is relatively more affordable. In fact, a cushion-cut diamond usually costs 30-50% less than a round diamond of a similar carat.

Home Proposal Ideas From TV & Film

Plans may be changing, but we’ve got plenty of ideas for at-home proposals. The most iconic on-screen scenes are filled with quarantine-friendly engagements – and here are our favorites!

At-Home Proposal Ideas From TV & Film

In the age of social distancing, what’s a starry-eyed couple to do? We’re here with good news: coronavirus doesn’t mean you have to cancel your proposal. But, yeah, the original plan is probably off. 

Luckily, inspiration abounds for at-home proposals that knock it out of the park. Just grab your remote. Countless couples from TV and film have gotten engaged in the cozy homes they built together.

The most iconic at-home proposals of TV and film:

Chandler + Monica in “Friends”

When one of TV’s favorite couples finally got engaged, it was Chandler who was surprised by Monica in her candlelit apartment. As Chandler said in the iconic scene, “I thought that it mattered what I said, or where I said it, then I realized that the only thing that matters is that you make me happier than I ever thought I could be.”

Flaunt the ring that’ll make you scream to the neighbors  “I’m engaged!”

Luke + Isabel in “Stepmom”

In the movie “Stepmom,” Luke wakes Isabel with a ring box containing a spool of thread. As he ties the thread around her finger, he says, “Even when things are hard and you feel like giving up you have to hang on to that decision, that choice to love each other. Even if it’s only by a thread…Will you marry me?” He then proposes by sliding an engagement ring down the thread and onto her finger.  Now that’s charming.

Twist this around your finger:

Ian + Toula in “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”

This couple knows how to hold each other close. In an intimate at-home proposal, Ian spontaneously pops the question to Toula while in bed. They share a rare, quiet moment together before revealing their engagement to her boisterous family. 

A simple ring that strives for the sweetest moments:

Mr. Darcy + Elizabeth in “Pride and Prejudice”

You can both self-isolate while still taking in the great outdoors. In the 2005 remake of “Pride and Prejudice,” Mr. Darcy tells Elizabeth that she has “bewitched [him], body and soul.” Foggy, early-morning walks are socially distant and perfect for romantic declarations!

A vintage, nature-inspired style perfect for lovers of the classics:

Each couple gets engaged in their own characteristically quirky fashion, showing that the perfect proposal is the one that gets you engaged! Sheldon even makes a few socially distanced phone calls to Amy’s dad and Stephen Hawking for permission.

Amy would go all fluttery for this classically-inspired rose gold ring:

For Carrie Bradshaw, the ideal engagement spot was her dream closet in her new home with Mr. Big. After the “will they”s and “won’t they”s – they did! Make this proposal a reality by choosing your favorite spot in the house, whether or not it’s full of Manolo Blahniks.

That famed black diamond engagement ring:

Luke + Lorelai in “Gilmore Girls”

In his empty diner beneath his apartment, Luke gets interrupted when Lorelai spontaneously proposes to him. But Luke’s answer was at the ready:  “Yes.” Not even equipped with a ring, Luke and Lorelai dive straight into celebration mode anyway – proof that the perfect proposal can come before the perfect ring. Cheers to that!

BONUS Romantic gesture ideas!

Quarantining together can make it a bit tricky to stay sentimental. So, presto! Three romantic movie moves that you can pull off, even while social distancing.

Lloyd + Diane in “Say Anything”

Even if you haven’t seen it, you know it: Lloyd holding up a boombox playing “In Your Eyes” was the original socially-distanced romantic gesture. It may be one of the most parodied acts, but we’ll let you in on a secret: deep down, everyone wishes they were a Lloyd or a Diane.
