You have recently got engaged ! Congratulations !
Before you know it, you are well on your way to planning the wedding of your dreams. You start picking out the perfect dress, your venue and every other minute detail that seems like no big deal, but is the very thing that sets your wedding apart and makes your day uniquely yours !
The same is true with picking out your wedding band ! This is one of the many decisions you will be making before your wedding and hopefully one of the most fun !
In the world of jewellery, your options are never-ending. This can seem overwhelming, but in no way does it need to be daunting. It simply means you get to let your creative side come out and choose the band that speaks to you the most.
Fortunately there is no right or wrong answer. It's just time to relax and have some fun choosing your next favourite piece of jewellery. We know which is your first favourite !
So what's the first step ? How do you go about choosing the best band for your ring ? At Splendor Diamonds we believe in making things easy, so here are common questions we are often asked:
Do you choose something that is exact match to your ring or do you opt for something that is unexpected, even daring ?
The answer to this all come down to this. PERSONAL PREFERENCE. Are you somebody who likes clean tidy lines ? When you choose outfits or home décor do you tend to be minimal and co-ordinated ? Then perhaps a matching band or a band this close to your engagement ring in aesthetic is for you ! Maybe the opposite is true.
Are you a risk taker ? Or do you have a laid back boho vibe ? Choosing something unexpected might be the perfect option for you ! Go ahead, pair up that edgy wide diamond band with your classic Solitaire engagement ring. See what happens ! You might just surprise yourself.
There are a few other questions.
Do you have to choose the same metal as your engagement ring ?
Does your engagement ring have to fit perfectly together with you band or is it OK if there is a little space in between ?
How to get a wedding band that will sit flush with your engagement ring ?
Shall I get platinum or white gold ?
How can I match the wedding band to my lifestyle ?
Can me and my partner have matching wedding rings ?
Does the band and engagement ring have to be the same width ?
Can I get my wedding band engraved ?
How do I clean my wedding band ?

Like most aspect of wedding planning, choosing bridal jewellery can be difficult and confusing. Most brides search for universal and high quality bridal jewellery, to match their fashion style and suitable to wear on other occasions. Ideally, you will buy bridal jewellery which ticks all boxes and matches with your wedding dress. Here are some expert tips on how to do that.
Blue Sapphires are the most popular gem stone choice for bridal and gemstone engagement rings, as they symbolise loyalty and friendship. Traditionally, every bride should wear something old, something new, some borrowed and something blue. Sapphires are one of the most popular choices for blue bridal jewellery - they make a great everyday statement pieces, flatter most outfits and suit all occasions.
If you are planning a vintage wedding, Pearls are the ultimate classical choice to any vintage or contemporary wedding dress. Pearl jewellery is the perfect memorabilia from your wedding day, suitable to wear on multiple occasions after your big day.
If you want to match your bridal jewellery to your wedding dress, we advise to carefully consider your purchase and buy high quality accessories to wear on multiple occasions. A brilliant finishing touch for crystal embroidered wedding dress is diamond jewellery.
One of our top recommendations is the universal and delicately eye-catching solitaire diamond pendant. How dazzling you want to be and how much diamonds you wear is entirely up to the bride's preferences and budget. However, bridal jewellery is best when understated and it should complement your dress, not compete with it.
You can even match precious metals to your wedding gown. Although most wedding gowns are traditionally white, the dress undertones" can vary depending on the material. Platinum jewellery would perfectly match with the gown's tones if you are wearing a satin wedding dress. For dresses in ivory nuances or warm champagne tones, we recommend precious metals in warm colours such as rose gold and yellow gold.
If your dress has an asymmetrical neckline or thick shoulder straps, choose a delicate solitaire pendant or skip the necklace. Since these neckline designs are eye-catching enough, adding a chunky statement necklace would most likely overwhelm the dress and clash with the design. Large line necklaces and drop necklaces are suitable for strapless wedding dresses or gowns with wide necklines.

Purchasing an engagement ring can seem like a daunting task, especially for those who have never purchased jewellery before. Adding further confusion to the process are the 4C's such as cut, colour, clarity and carat weight which determine the value of the diamond.

Splendor Diamonds recently introduced the 360° degree diamond viewer on every engagement ring page, a tool that allows you to to control from what angle you see your diamond, and move it from left to right so you can see all the details.

Topping our list is the round shaped diamond. This has and will continue to be the most popular choice for diamond shapes in engagement rings. Round diamonds represent roughly 75% of all diamonds that are sold worldwide.
PRINCESS CUT DIAMONDS
Moving past the classic round diamond shape, another top seller is the princess cut diamond. Princess cut diamonds were first created in 1980 and are considered a "fancy cut". They are square in shape and will reflect light back to your eye in a a unique way compared to the more classic round diamond.
The square shape also gives the ring a completely different look. Many women will choose the princess cut diamond because of their preference towards the square shape over round, It's also more unique than a round diamond, although it still is our second most popular seller. Princess cut diamonds work well in almost any style of ring so they are a great choice.
CUSHION CUT DIAMONDS
Cushion cut diamonds are fancy cut diamonds that are square shaped with rounded corners, giving them a softer outline over the harsher lines of princess cut diamonds. Many people refer to this cut of diamond as a pillow because of its shape, which is also how it got the name "cushion" cut.
Although there has been a lot of buss around cushion cut diamonds lately, these diamonds have actually been around for almost 200 years. For the first 100 years of their existence, cushion cut diamonds were even the most popular diamond shape ! But the version of a cushion cut diamond that you would find today is much different than a vintage cushion cut diamond. Modern modifications are refinements allow for the sparkle and brilliance of a cushion cut diamond to be amplified. We've seen a resurgence in popularity with this type of diamond, putting it high on our list.
EMERALD CUT DIAMONDS
Emerald cut diamonds are distinctive. Women who wear emerald cut diamonds are not afraid to be ahead of the curve and don't mind having a diamond that is different.
One thing about emerald cut diamonds that we always make sure to point out is the fact that often times inclusions or yellow colour in an emerald cut diamond will be easier to see. It's very easy to see into the depths of these diamonds.
OVAL CUT DIAMONDS
Oval diamonds have an old-fashioned feel to them compared to the more modern round diamond. Because oval diamonds are technically just modified versions of round diamonds, they do share similar characteristics. You'll find a similar fire, brilliance, and sparkle in an oval diamond as you do in a round diamond.
One advantage of choosing oval diamonds is their elongated shape. This helps create an illusion of a greater sized diamond (one of our many tips to make an engagement ring look bigger).
MARQUISE CUT DIAMONDS
Speaking of elongated diamond shapes, marquise cut diamonds are boat-shaped and also modified round diamonds. The long and narrow shape of marquise diamonds is, yet again, another way to get that longer look that creates the illusion of a much larger diamond (which can save you some serious money). It's a great choice if you are trying to maximise your budget, because it's also the diamond that covers the most surface area of any other diamond shape compared carat weight to carat weight.
A good pear shaped diamond should have excellent or very good symmetry, and the point of the diamond should line up with the middle of the rounded end. Additionally, the upper and lower curves on the side of the diamonds should form symmetrical curves.
Pear diamond are beautiful when they are proportioned correctly, but they can be hard to find !
