How to Choose the Safest Engagement Ring

Is your partner an outdoor enthusiast and/or loves to be active? It’s a thoughtful and reasonable point to consider for those shopping for an engagement ring. Balancing all that goes into shopping for an engagement ring can be a large task. We’ll make sure you’re prepared to choose a design that maximizes the protection of the center stone while minimizing the possibility for being caught on clothes, door handles, and everything in between.

Let’s first start off by defining what a “setting” is. A setting is the general ring itself, the “mounting” as a whole as we jewelers call it. It’s not quite the sub-categories that emphasize design language, but the main design of the ring as it stands. 

For example, the most popular engagement ring settings include:

  • Solitaire
  • Halo
  • Three Stone

Being cognizant of the style and further sub-style designs can come in handy especially when accommodating your significant others’ lifestyle. As a general rule of thumb, we suggest the following:

  • Minimize the number of “accent” stones
  • Minimize or entirely eliminate the number of “prongs” by choosing a “bezel” setting.

  • Maximize the strength of the precious metal by choosing platinum 
  • Minimize the “height” of the ring so it decreases the chances of catching onto or knocking into something

Just because you decide to add a layer of function to your engagement ring, it doesn’t mean you have to compromise on the design itself. There are many thoughtful and beautiful designs that you can create with the recommendations above in order to achieve maximum safety and peace of mind. Always remember to use caution and avoid wearing your engagement ring in pools, hot tubs, or gyms. It’s also a great idea to consider insuring your engagement ring for loss, theft, or damage.
