Engagement Ring and Band Selection Question?
Great website!! Looking to pop the question in about 6 weeks and would be interested in a females opinion. Don't want to ask girlfriends as really want it to be a surprise.
Seriously considering purchasing with Blue Nile as seems good value for money. My budget stretches to €3K Euro (approx $4.5K USD). Having done the retail shop, it seems my budget will get me a .55 - .6 carat, platinum ring. Ideally, I'd like to get a stone slightly bigger, maybe .7 carat.
Anyway, struggling a bit with the band. Do I go simple and 2mm? The tapered cathedral look which is a bit thicker and elavated? Or, the little diamonds on the band? Obviously, price vary and may reduce the size of the stone so would be interested to hear your opinion.
Little bit of info. My partner has quite small hands and wears some silver jewellery (claddagh ring). Don't think she'd go for anything too different so been looking at round diamonds with platinum band. Platinum seems to be recommended if can afford it?
Look forward to hearing your opinion or proposal idea.
