Choosing Engagement and Wedding Rings can be one of the hardest decisions to make. Many couples liken it to other significant purchases such as buying a house or a car.
There used to be a rule of thumb that a gentlemen should spend at least one month’s salary on the engagement ring. Of course, traditionally the engagement ring was a solitaire diamond and the bigger the better!
Compared to earlier times, things have been looking up in the jewellery space. This is largely due to the contemporary styles of jewellery that are available so abundantly now. Independent jewellery designers have come to occupy the centre stage. With professional training in jewellery designing, contemporary jewellery designers have brought about a change in the way jewellery is looked upon by the young couples. People are looking at jewellery that brings artistic and conceptual value to them, and hence you will see a surge in demand of contemporary jewellery with intrinsic artistic works. The fact that jewellery designers have trained at schools of jewellery designs makes everything seem like picture perfect when it comes to the overall emotional quotient of jewellery wearer.
Contemporary styles in jewellery and rings have afforded an opportunity to the wearer to associate and engage with the design at a personalized level; thus making the design look more like an extension of a person’s own style and personality rather than the standard designs that are otherwise available in the jewellery market space.
The best part of buying contemporary engagement and wedding rings is that it allows a couple to go in for a cusomized design. So a couple can talk to the independent jewellery designer and tell him or her about the concept that are looking for. They could go in for something that captures their past association and brings value to their feelings and reminds them of the good times they have spent together. Or they could go in for a design that looks standard from the outside but has secret little diamond on the inside of the ring. There are so many possibilities to extend each other’s appreciation that it will be apt for a couple to think of the concept and let the jewellery designer craft something akin to their imagination. Remember that jewellery is more about representing our love to the beloved and style of the jewellery is what separates you from the guy or girl next door.
