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.

Which order do you wear Engagement, Wedding and Eternity rings?

In the UK, tradition goes like this: Your wedding band sits on your left ring finger, closest to your heart. Then comes the engagement ring, followed by the eternity ring on top. So, it's wedding ring first, engagement ring next, and eternity ring last.

But remember, it's all about what feels right for you. At Poppy Elder Fine Jewellery, we love seeing how our customers wear their unique, ethical, and UK-made engagement rings rings in their own style. If you're looking for rings that truly reflect your personal story, we're here to help craft that perfect piece!

How much should you spend on an Engagement Ring in the UK?

Wondering how much to spend on an engagement ring in the UK? There's an outdated traditional guideline suggesting two to three months' salary, but at Poppy Elder Fine Jewellery, we believe it's really up to you.

Every couple is unique, and so is their budget. It's more important to find a ring that resonates with your personal style and love story, rather than sticking to a set rule. Whether you're after a bespoke piece or something from our unique, UK-made collections, we focus on creating beautiful rings that align with various budgets. We’ve got a few hints and tips for making the most of your engagement ring budget too.

Remember, it's not about the price tag; it's about the meaning behind the ring. We're here to help you find or create a ring that captures your love, without stretching your finances.

Are Custom Engagement Rings more expensive?

We're set up to create every piece individually, focusing on making unique, one-of-a-kind engagement rings that reflect your personal story and style. Since bespoke jewellery is our specialty, we're able to offer these personalised treasures at prices that don't break the bank.

What are Ethical Engagement Rings?

Ethical engagement rings are all about love – not just for each other, but for the world around us. At Poppy Elder Fine Jewellery, these rings represent a commitment to responsible and sustainable practices in jewellery making.

Ethical rings are crafted from materials sourced in a way that’s respectful to both people and the planet. This means using conflict-free diamonds, gemstones from mines that uphold strict ethical standards, and recycled or Fairtrade Gold. By choosing these materials, we ensure our jewellery-making process supports fair labor practices and minimises environmental impact.

When you choose an ethical engagement ring from us, you're not just getting a piece of jewellery; you're making a statement. You're saying yes to love, yes to sustainability, and yes to a better future.

In short, ethical engagement rings embody the beauty of commitment, crafted with care and consciousness.

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.
