Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Australian Diamond Network offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.


Can wedding rings be different

Hi

Yes wedding rings can be different.

The wonderful thing about diamond jewellery is that there isn't a right or wrong when it comes to what you find beautiful.

Australian Diamond Network has had customers that mix and match their rings all the time.

For example, they may purchase a Rose Gold Diamond Engagement Ring with a White Gold Diamond Wedding Ring.

You are the one that will be wearing it every day, so go with what will make you happy, not with what you think is 'expected'.

Hope this helps :) 

What gemstone shape reflects the most light?

Hi - great question.

The Round Brilliant Cut Diamond will give you the best visual display of brilliance/fire/scintillation/etc.

It will not only reflect light, but it will also refract the white light and break it up into the colours of the spectrum.

Just make sure that it is a well cut diamond. A diamond that isn't well cut will allow light to escape out the bottom and not be returned to the viewers eye.

If you would like to know more about how a diamonds quality characteristics can affect its beauty (and value), don't hesitate to get in contact...we're always happy to discuss so that our customers can make a fully informed decison.

Hope this has helped.

Is it bad luck to drop the wedding ring?

It's only bad luck if you've damaged the ring :)

What can I pair with my rose gold engagement ring?

I don't like white gold. Would yellow gold look weird?

Hi

Why not have a rose gold wedding ring that compliments your engagement ring?

Or perhaps you could have two wedding rings - one in white gold and one in yellow which sit on either side of your engagement ring to create a mixed gold stacked look?

There are no rules, and there is no right or wrong - it's all about whatever you find aesthetically pleasing.

Good luck

What is trendy in engagement and wedding rings atm?

Hi

Oval and Cushion shape diamonds have been pretty hot for a while now and aren't showing signs of slowing down - especially in a halo surround.

Round Brilliant Cuts set into an off-square halo (slightly rounded corners) setting are generating a bit of interest.

Rose gold has been on trend for solitaires, but I don't think that this is going to last.

We've been making quite a few full set eternity rings  (diamonds all the way around) which are being used as the wedding ring.

Don't get too caught up in finding a ring that's 'trending' - select something that you're going to still enjoy in 20yrs.

Hope this helps

What type of wedding ring should I wear?

With a solitaire :) I am stuck!

Hi

 

The wedding ring signifies your transition from being engaged to being married, and like your engagement ring, it’s something you’ll be wearing for the rest of your life.

 

So, the first step is to ask yourself is if you want a wedding band that sits flush beside your engagement ring without a gap, or if it’s okay to have a little space between the two?

 

This will in part be determined by whether your engagement ring can sit flush with a straight wedding ring. Many classic engagement ring styles are already designed to sit flush with a straight band, so look for an elevated head that will allow the centre diamond to sit above the wedding band.

 

If your ring won’t take a straight wedder, you can have wedding rings custom made to fit flush with the engagement ring by making it slightly curved.

 

Usually, the wedding band is made using the same type of metal as the engagement ring, but there’s no set rule that says the metals have to match. And a wedding ring with a row of diamonds will add a hint of sparkle and compliment a solitaire engagement ring without detracting from the main diamond.

 

One piece of advice, make sure to order your ring with plenty of time before the wedding. Most jewellers don’t carry all possible combinations of finger size/styles/diamond quality/diamond carat weight/etc. in stock, so this could take a few days, or several weeks to get the ring you want.

Is asking for a parents permission before proposing still a thing?

Hi

 

Great question!

 

The tradition of seeking ‘permission’ is viewed by many of our customers as 'old fashioned' and not really relevant in today’s culture of equality.

 

While it may be considered by some as the courteous or respectful thing to do, many couples don't feel that they need the parents’ permission.

 

Many of the people that buy engagement rings from us tend to actually ask for the parents help with the proposal; or they'll ask for the parents blessing/approval together after they've become engaged.

 

You’ll just have to gauge the relationship with the parents and decide if this is something that they would expect to be done, what are the potential consequences if it’s not done...or will the parents just be happy that their child has found someone that loves them?

 

I guest there isn't a right-or-wrong / yes-or-no to this one...sorry :)

How many prongs do you suggest, 4 or 6?

Hi - You may want to consider how active you are, and how much wear your ring will go through on a daily basis.

Are you really active and sporty; do you work with your hands; do you enjoy gardening; etc. If so, then having a few extra claws will provide additional strength and protection.

 

The size and shape of the diamond will play a role - - for a more modest carat weight, having 6 claws might be a bit too much metal and could detract from the diamond.

 

Regardless of the diamond size, if you do go with 6, you can request that each individual claw is slightly thinner to reduce the overall visual impact of having more metal.

 

If you decide on 4, another good option is to have the claws in platinum with a gold band.
