Simple Engagement Ring FAQ's

How should an Engagement Ring fit?

Wondering how your engagement ring should fit? At Poppy Elder Fine Jewellery, we believe it should feel just right – snug enough so it doesn't slide off, but loose enough to slide over your knuckle with a little effort.

A well-fitting ring should sit comfortably on your finger without pinching or digging in. It should be easy enough to put on in the morning but slightly challenging to take off at night (when your fingers are typically a bit larger).

Remember, everyone's fingers can change size slightly due to weather, time of day, or other factors. If you're unsure about the fit, speak to use for some help. As specialists in bespoke, UK-made engagement rings, we're here to ensure your ring is as perfect in fit as it is in design.

What type of metal is best for a simple engagement ring?

The best metal for a simple engagement ring depends on your style and lifestyle. White gold is popular for its modern look but needs re-plating over time, unless you love the soft tones of unplated white gold. Yellow gold offers a classic, warm appearance and is low maintenance. Rose gold adds a romantic touch with its unique pink hue. Platinum is the most durable and hypoallergenic, perfect for everyday wear. Each metal has its charm, so choose what feels right for you.

How do I choose the right diamond or gemstone for a simple engagement ring?

When choosing a diamond or gemstone for a simple engagement ring, consider the cut, clarity, and colour. Round, emerald, or Asscher cuts are great for simple designs. Step cuts are particularly elegant and understated. Opt for higher clarity grades to showcase the stone's natural beauty. Smaller stones in minimalist settings can provide a delicate look. Balance these factors to find a stone that suits your style.

Can a simple engagement ring be customised?

Yes, simple engagement rings can be customised to suit your personal style. You can add engravings with a special message or date inside the band. Choose unique gemstones, like birthstones, or mix metals for a two-tone effect. Incorporate hidden details, like small stones or symbols, for added personal meaning. These custom touches make your simple engagement ring truly unique.

How do I care for and maintain a simple engagement ring?

To keep your simple engagement ring looking its best, clean it regularly by soaking it in lukewarm soapy water for about 10 minutes, then gently scrub with a soft brush. Avoid harsh chemicals that could damage the metal or stone. When not wearing it, store your ring in a soft, lined jewellery box to prevent scratches. Proper care will keep your ring beautiful for years to come.

Which Finger for the Engagement Ring?

In the UK, the traditional finger for wearing an engagement ring is the fourth finger of your left hand. This custom stems from the romantic belief that a vein in this finger, known as the 'Vena Amoris', or 'vein of love', is directly connected to the heart.

But at Poppy Elder Fine Jewellery, while we adore traditions, we also celebrate personal style and choice. If you prefer to wear your unique, UK-made engagement ring on a different finger or hand that feels more comfortable or meaningful to you, we say go for it!

Remember, your engagement ring is a symbol of your love and commitment, so wear it in the way that best represents your personal love story.

What is a Solitaire diamond?

A solitaire diamond, often the star of engagement rings, is a classic and elegant choice symbolising love and commitment. At Poppy Elder Fine Jewellery, we cherish the timeless appeal of solitaire diamond rings.

In essence, a solitaire diamond refers to a single diamond set into a ring, making it the focal point of the piece. This style is renowned for its simplicity and sophistication, allowing the beauty of the single diamond to shine without distraction. The solitaire setting is versatile and can complement various diamond shapes and sizes, from the traditional round brilliant cut to more unique shapes like kite, moval, or baguette cut.

Solitaire diamond engagement rings are a popular choice for their symbolic representation of a singular, enduring love. They are the epitome of classic engagement rings, offering a perfect blend of simplicity, purity, and elegance.

At Poppy Elder Fine Jewellery, each solitaire diamond is carefully selected for its quality and brilliance, ensuring your engagement ring is not just a piece of jewellery, but a symbol of your unique love story. Our bespoke approach allows you to choose from a variety of settings and styles, creating a truly personalised and UK-made engagement ring that reflects your individual journey.
