Designing and choosing a diamond ring

Posted on

The thought of designing your ring can be a difficult and draining process. There is so much to consider, with not enough expert guidance along the way. Many engagement ring shoppers dread the sneaking around, un-knowing expenses, and understanding who to really trust with the big purchase.

Thankfully, DX took all of these thoughts and processes into consideration when we designed our newly branded and re-invented website. The platform allows you to browse our range of over 80,000 diamonds, choose your very own setting, and check-out knowing there is a team ready to answer any critical questions.

When it comes to designing your ring or designing for that particular person, we take you through each step to ensure you've covered the absolute musts:

1. Select a diamond. Choose a diamond with specifications that exceed your expectations, while getting the most out of your set budget. The 4 C's are vital to know and understand, and we recommend visiting the GIA Certification - 4 C's to read some more information on each specification. This link will help you shop online by yourself, to eventually communicate to jewellers your preferred diamond cut, clarity, colour and carat weight - it also helps understand what you can achieve within your budget!

2. Choose a setting. To view your options of ring settings, click here. At DX, we offer the choice of Trilogy, Solitaire, Halo and Side Diamond settings. These are the most popular, traditional and 'on-trend' ring settings to this day. When deciding on a setting, it can be tricky as it is the main design and look of the entire ring. Our team will point you in the right direction if you're stuck, or have a think about her style, personality and taste, and then go from there!

3. View your ring. Whether you're in store or online, we can provide a 360-degree video of your designed ring, and ensure you're pleased with the final look. If you're checking out online, it is so simple to enquire about any last minute questions or concerns by clicking the contact us page. All of our rings come with a lifetime guarantee, free shipping and a GIA diamond certification for complete customer satisfaction.

When deciding on that perfect ring, ensure that your chosen jeweller provides you with the appropriate certification and documents for an unbiased clarification of your diamond and maintain it's long-lasting value. A couple of reputable diamond grading certificates come from the below companies:

Gemological Institute of America (GIA) - chosen institute for DX diamonds

American Gemological Society (AGS)

European Gemological Laboratory (EGL)

International Gemological Institute (IGI)

International Confederation of Jewellery, Silverware, Diamonds, Pearls, and Stones (CIBJO)

Last but not least, we highly recommend that you confirm your diamonds are ethical and sustainable. All DX diamonds are guaranteed to be conflict-free however, not every jeweller cares about this detail, so be aware of this when asking your questions.
