What Is the Significance of Engagement Rings?

Engagement rings have become a symbol of love and commitment between two people. They are given by one partner to another as a promise of their intention to marry. The significance of engagement rings lies in the fact that they are a tangible representation of the love and devotion that two people share. In many cultures, engagement rings are seen as a status symbol and a way to publicly display one's commitment to their partner. They are often made of precious metals and adorned with diamonds or other gemstones to signify the value of the relationship. While the act of giving an engagement ring is steeped in tradition and cultural significance, ultimately, the meaning behind it is personal and unique to each couple.

Are There Ethical Considerations With Traditional Diamonds?

Traditional diamond mining has links to human rights violations, environmental degradation, and funding for violent conflict worldwide. A diamond that perpetuates human suffering should not be used as a symbol of your love.

Fortunately, an ethical alternative to mined diamonds is lab grown diamonds.

Our lab created diamond rings are made from 100% ethical diamonds you can feel good about buying. Opting for lab created diamonds is the only way to guarantee that your engagement ring has a morally sound origin. When you shop for an engagement ring at Clean Origin, you'll be able to find the ideal ring that fits within your budget and take comfort in knowing that you've made a positive impact on the world.

What Are the Benefits of a Lab Grown Diamond Engagement Ring?

Lab created diamonds offer an ethical, affordable, and sustainable alternative to mined diamonds. They have the same optical, chemical, and physical properties as natural diamonds, with several advantages:

  • 20-40% cost savings compared to natural diamonds of similar size and quality
  • Conflict-free origins, created ethically in a controlled lab environment
  • Eco-friendly production with significantly lower environmental impact
  • High-quality stones are available in various shapes, colors, and sizes

When it comes to diamond jewelry, lab grown diamonds offer a great alternative to natural diamonds, with all the benefits and none of the drawbacks.

What Diamond Quality Factors Should I Consider?

Focus on the 4Cs - Cut, Clarity, Color, and Carat weight.

An ideal diamond will have excellent cut quality for optimal sparkle, higher clarity ratings for fewer inclusions, colorless or near-colorless grades, and a carat weight within your budget.

What Diamond Shapes Work Best for Engagement Rings?

Round, princess, cushion, oval, emerald, and asscher cuts are popular for engagement rings. Consider your partner's hand size and finger proportions. Round and princess cut maximize brilliance, while oval and emerald are elongating on the finger.

What Are the Different Lab Grown Diamond Colors Available?

The most common is colorless, but you can also find yellow, pink, blue, and black lab diamonds. The natural diamond color scale (D-Z) applies to lab diamonds too. Stick to colorless or near-colorless for a classic white diamond.

Does the Lab Grown Diamond Cost Include Setting?

Typically, the diamond cost is separate from the setting. The metal type and intricate detailing impact the setting price. Simple solitaire settings start at around $550, while more elaborate settings can cost $2000+.

How Do I Choose the Perfect Ring Setting?

Select a setting style that complements the center diamond and fits your partner's aesthetic.

Popular options include solitaire, halo, and three-stone settings. Consider band width, metal type (e.g., yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, and platinum), and embellishments like pavé diamonds or engraving.

Should I Choose a Thicker or Thinner Band Width?

Band width ranges from 1mm to 3mm or more. Thinner bands around 1.5-2mm suit smaller diamonds, while larger diamonds can support wider bands. Comfort and style preference are also factors. Consider your partner's lifestyle and jewelry aesthetic.

How Do I Determine My Ring Size?

Get your ring size properly measured by a jeweler. If unsure, secretly borrow a ring your partner wears on the correct finger. Trace the inner circle on the paper and bring it to a jeweler. There are also printable ring sizers available online.

Can You Wear Your Engagement and Wedding Ring at the Same Time?

It's common for women to wear both their engagement ring and wedding ring simultaneously. The traditional way is to place the wedding band inside the engagement ring as it's closer to the heart. Bridal sets are an excellent option for those who prefer matching sets, as they fit together perfectly. Before the wedding, the engagement ring is worn alone, but after exchanging vows, both rings are worn together.

It's also possible to wear only your wedding band instead of the engagement ring and band. Some women replace their engagement ring with a wedding band during the ceremony.

When it comes to diamond engagement rings, there are no strict rules to follow, only traditions. It's essential to do what feels right and comfortable for you. Wearing your rings in a way that suits you best is entirely acceptable!

Can I Customize My Diamond Engagement Ring?

Of course! Personalized touches make it uniquely yours. Engrave a special message inside the band, add birthstones or colored gems, use diamonds from old jewelry, design your own setting, etc. Work with your jeweler to create meaningful custom details.

What Engraving Ideas Can I Add?

Engraving lets you personalize with special meaning. Popular options include initials, wedding date, coordinates of proposal location, romantic phrase, or personalized message. Keep characters brief for spacing.

Disclaimer: Engraving is currently not available at Clean Origin.

Should I Involve My Partner in Selecting the Ring?

Some prefer keeping it a total surprise, while others want their partner's input. Discuss their style preferences like metal type, diamond shape, band width, etc. Or propose with a simple placeholder ring, then design the final ring together.

When Should I Buy an Engagement Ring?

Ideally, 2-3 months before proposing. However, it depends on your timeline. Some buy the ring on the day of the proposal! Give yourself enough time so you don't feel rushed.

Should I Buy Insurance for My Ring?

Yes, insurance provides protection in case of damage, loss, or theft. Coverage is available for as little as ~$2/month billed annually.

What Is the Best Way to Clean My Ring?

Clean regularly with a jewelry cleaning solution or warm water and mild dish soap. Gently scrub with a soft bristle toothbrush. Rinse and pat dry with a soft, lint-free cloth. Avoid harsh chemicals or abrasives. Consider professional cleaning every 6-12 months.

Should I Buy Online or in Store?

Purchasing online offers convenience and competitive pricing, while in-store allows seeing rings in person. A good approach is to research online and then visit stores to view styles you like.

How Much Should I Budget for a Lab Grown Diamond Ring?

You can find beautiful rings with lab-grown diamonds starting at around $550. For higher quality diamonds, budget $2,000 - $4,000.

How Can I Stay Within My Budget?

Having a budget will guide smart decisions. Prioritize investing in diamond quality over size. Consider lower clarity grades or accent stones to reduce cost. Lab grown diamonds themselves offer significant savings over natural diamonds.
