Lifestyle and Diamond Engagement Rings

When buying a Diamond Engagement Ring for your partner it is essential to consider their lifestyle both work and leisure. You want to make sure that your partner will be able to wear their ring all of the time. If you think about the lifestyle that your partner leads you will find an engagement ring design that is appropriate and practical. What lifestyle does your partner have?

  • Does your partner have a job or a hobby that will mean their Diamond Engagement Ring is at risk of being knocked or scratched? If the answer is yes, Platinum engagement rings are more durable than gold engagement rings.
  • Has your partner ever had any reaction to any jewellery that she has worn before? Platinum is hypoallergenic so definitely choose a Platinum engagement ring if your partner has had any reaction to other metals.
  • Does your partner have a conservative workplace where a dramatic or striking engagement ring design might be inappropriate? Ask our diamond ring experts for recommendations and advice by clicking enquire above.
  • Would an engagement ring design with a high set diamond be impractical? If your partner is very active and uses their hands a lot they may be better suited to a diamond engagement ring that has a lower setting or smaller diamonds that are set into the band. Have a look at The Embrace and The Ignite Diamond Engagement ring designs.

Personality and Diamond Engagement Rings

An engagement ring is a unique piece of jewellery that will be worn every day for the rest of ones life. It should be more suited to your partner and her personality than to current fashion trends. Which engagement ring design would suit your partner's personality?

  • An outgoing person may prefer more elaborate and more original designs, while someone with a conservative personality may prefer a more subtle or understated Diamond Engagement Ring.
  • What style of jewellery does your partner currently wear? Is it delicate or bold, vintage or modern, classic and timeless or contemporary and high fashion. If you cant decide and need any advice please contact us, if you send us a picture of your partners jeweller we can help you decide.

Diamond Engagement Rings - Gold or Platinum?

If it's possible that your partner may scratch the metal of your their Diamond Engagement Ring either in their line of work or playing sport then we highly recommend Platinum as a metal choice. Platinum is hypoallergenic and is less likely to scratch than 18kt gold due to it's higher durability.

At 1791 Diamonds New Zealand we have Designer Engagement Rings in Platinum, 18kt White Gold, 18kt Yellow Gold and even 18kt Rose Gold.
