Why choose a dainty engagement ring?
So, what is a dainty ring, you may ask. A dainty ring is
• Slim and delicate
• Elegant and feminine
Yes, it’s all of this and then some more! Typically, a 0.3 carat – 0.5 carat solitaire ring or an aesthetically pleasing simple design set on a slim, plain or pavé-set shank are forever favourites among dainty engagement rings.
Here are just some of the reasons to love a dainty engagement ring:
♥ Your partner prefers delicate, feminine rings. Strong, confident women know their worth is far more than carat size and heavy price tags.
♥ Dainty rings are best suited for petite hands but also look lovely and graceful on everyone.
♥ Dainty engagement rings double as stackers – which means that over the years other special rings can be added to your ring finger
♥ Bonus The smaller carat stones and slimmer ring band translates to a far more affordable engagement ring than ones with large gemstones and opulent designs!
3 things to consider when you buy a dainty engagement ring
If you’re wondering how to choose a dainty engagement ring, we recommend:
Solid gold has always been the preferred metal for engagement rings. For a stronger, long-lasting dainty engagement ring, you can choose solid gold purities ranging between 18k and 10k in yellow, rose or white gold colours.
Select a gold colour that complements the gemstone and accentuates its sparkle. Rose gold is a very romantic hue and best suits pink-tinted stones like morganite or cognac diamond rings. Yellow gold complements champagne diamonds or an emerald or ruby solitaire stone. White gold settings are best for brilliant white diamonds or for a blue stone solitaire ring.
Sterling silver engagement rings also make lovely and affordable dainty engagement rings for women with sophisticated taste; that is, if you are shopping on a budget. Rhodium-plated sterling silver rings are an excellent substitute for white gold ones.
Gemstones that work best for dainty engagement rings
While selecting the perfect ring to express your affection, pay heed to the cut, clarity, colour and carat of the gemstone.
Diamonds are by far the most popular engagement ring gemstones. Dainty styles present smaller diamonds in solitaire, three stone or halo settings. The dainty diamond carat size should preferably be <0.3ct. as smaller diamonds may not have a cut grade.
Coloured precious gemstones like sapphires, rubies, emeralds, topaz and aquamarines are the most in-trend for dainty engagement rings. You can choose her birthstone, her favourite gemstone, or a stone significant for spiritual reasons–to promote love, calmness, healing, happiness and so on.
Gemstone cut can make an incredible difference to its sparkle and cost. The round cut is classic yet most expensive, while princess, emerald, cushion, and marquise are fancy cuts and fashionable choices for their accentuated gleam and modern looks.
2. Dainty ring band thickness and designs
A dainty engagement ring with gemstone(s) requires a band thickness of at least 1.3mm to 2mm to make a strong setting for the gemstone.
Dainty styles come with sculptural, twisted, polished or matte-finished bands, too. Captivating dainty engagement rings also have charming open band rings with slender gem-set shanks.
