For many years, it was thought that diamonds worn on the left hand would ward off evil spirits and they signified betrothal to the public. Finally, those who could afford it began to call it a diamond engagement ring. The popularity of the diamond engagement ring really began to take off in 1938 when the advertising slogan, Diamonds are Forever, was coined and when De Beers introduced the control system that successfully worked as diamonds were withheld from the market by way of a monopoly. In the early 20th century, one of the chairman of De Beers Diamond Mining Corporation optimistically predicted that the diamond trade would prosper, ”so long as men are foolish and women are vain.”
Buying the right engagement ring can be one of the most difficult and exhilarating processes in any individuals lifetime. Traditionally it has fallen to the responsibility of the proposer to find the ring; however, today couples often shop together to select the ring. Either way; this exciting challenge requires an understanding in order to find the engagement ring that is unique and will adequately reflect the true essence of this important milestone.
The final decision is based around metal choice; ranging in price from platinum, white gold or yellow gold. All have their benefits and challenges but it is likely that your choice will be influenced not only by budget but by what existing jewellery your loved one is wearing. Choosing an engagement ring may be a once in a lifetime event, however, time invested on finding a quality handmade local jeweller will result in an established relationship, likely to last a lifetime. This relationship will allow confidence and trust in purchasing wedding bands, anniversary jewellery and subsequent gifts.
