David Expert in Jewelry and Engagement Ring

Watch & Jewellery Middle East Show, Sharjah, UAE

We asked this question to David, a jewelry expert with years of experience at Bon Gioielli, a leading company in the construction of online engagement rings with a large stock of GIA and IGI certified diamonds, both natural and Lab Grown. David guides us through a virtual appointment with customers, talking about tastes and preferences on the shape of diamonds and discussing with customers to satisfy their needs, recommending new models and current trends. From design to gemological consultancy and delivery of the finished ring.

1. Shape your thoughts

When starting this exciting journey towards purchasing an engagement ring, it is crucial to consider your diamond shape preference. David points out that “a round center stone will never go out of style and is by far the most popular shape.” If you’re feeling indecisive, play it safe and opt for a round center stone.
For those who want something a little trendier, oval-cut and pear-shaped diamonds are a great choice.

2. Timing is everything

As you plan the proposal, keep in mind the timing and time needed to make the ring. David reminds us to give ourselves enough time as the rings are made to order. Therefore, it is advisable to plan ahead to ensure you have the time you need to create your perfect piece of jewellery.

3. Let’s talk about budget.

One of the most important aspects to consider is the budget. There are no set rules when it comes to how much you should spend on an engagement ring, but it’s essential to determine how much you can comfortably spend. David recommends choosing a style that fits your budget, and Bon Gioielli offers a wide selection of great options for every type of budget, without having to spend a fortune.

4. A two-way street

David emphasizes the importance of involving your partner in the decision-making process. “You should always keep your partner informed and follow his lead,” he advises. The engagement ring will be worn every day, so it is essential to ensure that it is loved by the recipient. If your partner suggests something other than the classic solitaire, he tries something different like vintage-inspired engagement rings.
