How to buy an engagement ring

Read tips on how to choose an engagement ring with advice on how to find the ring that perfectly matches what you and your partner want.

1. Set your budget

Think about your overall budget and find the price range that works best for you. Don't get caught up in conventional wisdom that says you must spend 1,2 or 3 months salary on your ring. Think about the budget that works best for you and your partner. Start browsing our setting and diamond options. Settings and diamonds are priced separately. Use price filters when exploring our diamond inventory to stay within your budget. With VRAI you can avoid deal mark-ups and VRAI also offers payment options such as interest-free installments and monthly financing for US customers, as well as other options for international customers.

2. Choose your engagement ring setting

The setting refers to the overall design of a ring. Consider the setting as another way of expressing your personal style, whether it's vintage-inspired or modern-yet-timeless. Pairing the diamond's shape and carat size with the setting is important. Certain settings better highlight specific diamonds. For example, a Two Tone engagement ring pairs best with colorless diamonds as the platinum prongs will not imbue the center stone with added color. A Halo engagement ring will often make diamonds of a lighter carat weight appear larger on the finger. Consider these pairings when choosing a setting for yourself. Don't get caught up in trends you see on social media. Finding the right setting and diamond combination is a personal experience and should reflect every individual's unique relationship and values. For personal guidance throughout your purchasing experience and advice on which one is best for your VRAI created diamond, speak with our diamond experts.

3. Choose a diamond shape

A diamond’s shape is like its personality. Certain shapes can appear more classic and traditional, while others have a more modern look. Consider your own personal style before choosing a diamond shape. Is your look sleek and minimalist, or bright and bold? Do you want clean, contemporary lines, or a more vintage-inspired design? Do you already have a shape that features prominently in your jewelry collection? These questions will help lead you towards the shape that’s right for you. VRAI offers the bespoke experience of Cut for You™ where we cut and polish a VRAI created diamond to the precise shape and size you select. The Cut for You™ experience offers 30 diamond shapes from the most popular to iconic historical shapes to new shape variations exclusive to VRAI.
