While diamonds are the traditionally popular choice for engagement rings in Perth, there are plenty of other stunning gemstone options available to accurately reflect the depth of your love.

There is a world of coloured gemstones waiting for a bespoke design to transform them into a timeless engagement ring, one as enduring as your love for each other. But choosing the perfect ring can be challenging. We’ve tried to make the process a little easier for you.

Follow these 8 steps to selecting the perfect gemstone for your engagement ring.

1. Budget

The most important part of setting a budget is being realistic. While you may dream of a 3-carat diamond on your finger, spend what is comfortable for you and your partner. A non-diamond ring can offer some leeway with this. The majority of your engagement ring budget will go towards the type of gemstone, carat weight, ring style, and setting.

2. Gemstone

A diamond solitaire catches the eye and has timeless elegance. A statement sapphire nestled in sparkling diamonds harks towards classic royalty. Rubies glow intensely with mystery, and brilliant green emeralds ooze sophistication.

Choosing the right gemstone can be tricky, but here at Allgem, we’re are happy to help guide you through the process. We offer a range of precious and semi-precious loose gemstones to create an item of bespoke jewellery for you.

3. Cut

When choosing the cut of your precious stone, try to choose one that reflects your personality. From classic Round and Brilliant cuts to fancy Princess, Cushion, Emerald, Oval, and Pear cuts, let your heart do the choosing and go with the shape that calls to you.

4. Look

From modern contemporary looks to classic 6 prong settings and vintage designs, we can help create the perfect ring for you.

5. Metal

Are you a white gold lover? Or does rose gold fill you with romantic feelings? Go with the metal that fills you with joy, and remember, you will be wearing it for years to come, so go with your heart.

6. Carat

The stone’s size largely depends on your budget, but a loose gemstone is likely to allow you to get a larger gem over a diamond. Again, this comes down to budget and stone preference.

7. Timing

Now you have a clear idea of your ideal ring, look around to find a reputable jeweller. Look for one who will listen to your ideas and help you create your perfect engagement ring.

8. Order

Before you order your ring, be sure to ask your jeweller about their gemstone certification and what their return and warranty policies are.
