Engagement Ring Metal Options
When it comes to choosing a metal for your rings, we recommend 18ct gold or platinum for their best durability, maintainability and attraction. 18ct gold comes in three charming colour alterations - white, yellow, and rose.
Yellow gold - for timeless perfect engagement rings, go for the sunshiny, bright yellow gold with a diamond. Don’t be hesitant to try styling. Besides, the yellow gold band looks wonderful with platinum or white gold in a simple engagement ring.
Rose gold - is a combination of gold and copper. Its blush tone complements white stones and metals magnificently. So, it will be perfect to complement a rose gold engagement ring with a white gold or platinum wedding band in the future. For gentlemen, a rose gold band with a diamond is a stylish and effective choice.
White gold - white gold is an alloy made of pure gold and strong elements such as zinc, nickel, and copper to give it durability and make its colour even whiter. To intensify the glow of white gold, it is plated with rhodium to hide the yellowish tints. This plating needs to be replated over time for the best shine.
Platinum - is an originally white metal, it will not lose its brightness over time, so doesn't require any plating. Containing 95 % pure platinum, and only 5 % other elements, it is more costly than 18ct gold. The strength to keep brilliance over time makes platinum a general choice for engagement rings.
Engagement Ring Setting Styles
Creating the perfect engagement ring starts with choosing the metal. We recommend 18ct gold or platinum for the best durability, maintainability and attraction. GS Diamonds’ 18ct gold bands come in three charming colour alterations: white, yellow, and rose. Choose from our range of bands to start the design process for your custom engagement ring.
Solitaire - the most basic and timeless ring setting is designated also a prong setting.The ring allows notable light to move into the stone, increasing its brilliance and sparkle. A prong is a tiny metal claw that clutches the diamond tightly, keeping it in place. Prongs can be curved, flat, extended, or V-shaped.
Halo - the halo setting associates with the position of crystals in a group or (round or square) nearby a centre diamond, so, makes the centre stone appear larger. It's a good option to expand the presence of a petite diamond and to increase the overall sparkle of the ring. They come in many appealing frames, some of them even look like petals.
Halos are often matched with pavé bands but could stand on their own with a plain unadorned band. And as the name means, a double halo setting consists of two circles of jewels around the centre stone.
Pavé -pavé is a sort of bead setting where gems are set nearly. It is an excellent opportunity for those buyers who want more sparkle. By nearly setting tiny diamonds, commonly with the smallest visibility of the miniature metal parts holding the stones in position, the effect is one of eternal sparkle.
This setting is also identified as a bead setting and, in the case of exceptionally miniature gems, may be named a micro-pavé setting. Diamonds in pavé-set are as small as .01-.02 carats, and if smaller - then that would be described as micro-pavé.
Three-stone - this clever setting can be applied for engagement, anniversary, or any meaningful occasion. The three stones, set nearly together, signify the couple’s past, today, and in the future.
These stones can be all the same size, or the centre stone is larger than the two other stones. The most common diamond shapes for this setting are the round cut, and the princess cut.
Vintage style - these rings feature complex detail work such as filigree, refined metalwork or twisted lines of metal near the surface of the jewel.

Should I choose a natural diamond, or a lab grown diamond engagement ring?
The beauty of shopping for an engagement ring in 2023 is that you now have the choice of natural diamonds and lab-grown diamonds. So, which should you choose? Well, that all comes down to personal preference. Man-made diamonds have long been the favourite because they are completely unique, traditional, and classic. What most people don't realise is that lab-grown diamonds offer all of the beauty of a man-made diamond, at a more affordable price! Lab-grown diamonds are created in a lab, in the same environment that creates diamonds in the real world. When it comes to choosing the right diamond for an engagement ring, for many, it really comes down to price. And the truth is, while man-made diamonds are undeniably beautiful and always will be, lab-grown diamonds are a more affordable option. Here at GS Diamonds, we provide both man-made and synthetic diamonds for our engagement rings in Sydney and online.
Shopping for the ring together
One of the biggest advantages of shopping for your engagement ring together is that you'll both be involved in the process. This can make the experience more special and memorable. You'll also get to share your ideas and opinions with your loved one, which can help you come to a decision that you're both happy with.
The downside? It might take longer to come to a shared decision, and the fact that you're planning a proposal will be harder to keep secret now that they know you're looking for a ring!
Choosing the ring as a surprise
The obvious pro? it's a romantic gesture. Surprising your partner with an engagement ring is what you see in all the movies, and read about in all of the fairytales. It shows that you've put a lot of thought into the purchase and that you're willing to go the extra mile to make your proposal special.
Of course, there's always the possibility that your partner might not love the ring you've chosen for them. If you're not 100% certain that you'll choose the ring they'd choose for themselves, it really can't hurt to get some inspiration or even shop for it together. That way, you can be sure that they'll end up with a piece of jewellery that they truly love and cherish.
The answer is yes ! We also custom make any design of your choice as we have expert CAD Designers to help with this design process. Just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, Call 1300 181 294 or chat with our expert consultants online.
