How to Buy a Ring

     

You’ve found your 1/1, the singular person you want to share your life with. Finding the perfect engagement ring shouldn’t be so daunting. Here’s a primer.

Center Diamond

The center diamond accounts for the majority of a rings value. Eighty-three percent of all engagement rings have a diamond center stone.

Ring Settings

The setting does more than hold the center diamond in place; its design provides the ring its unique personality.

Noble Metals

Durable noble metals such as gold or platinum are ideal for protecting your center stone from daily wear. At O.C. Tanner Jewelers, our proprietary white gold uses palladium, which renders the metal hypoallergenic, heightens the pure white color and improves long-term durability.
