How to Budget for An Engagement Ring

By | Diamonds, Engagement Rings | No Comments

So, you’ve made the big decision to ask for your partner’s hand in marriage. Good for you! Next comes the second big decision: buying an engagement ring. With so many types of engagement rings out there, this can seem like a daunting process. However, there’s hope. If you’re like most people, you’ll have to think about the cost of the ring, and that means setting a budget. Fortunately, it also means you’ll narrow down your options considerably once you figure out how much you can spend.

It might not be romantic, but setting an engagement ring budget makes a lot of sense. After all, you don’t want to end up in a difficult financial situation before you’ve even popped the question – save that for after your wedding day!

Start off by Reviewing Your Current Expenses

There are many rules of thumb about how much to spend on an engagement ring –  you’ve probably heard the “two months salary” clichés. These are just broad guidelines, but they point to a simple truth: buy a ring that matches your financial reality.

Be smart about setting a budget. Don’t just figure out how much you make in a month and start shopping. Take into account your debts, your expenses, bills, mortgage payments, taxes and everything else your money is going to.

Take the time to subtract your monthly expenses from your income, and consider any existing long-term debts. If you have savings, great – just make sure they aren’t needed for something else. Bottom line: if you don’t think you can afford a ring that will suit you right now, then wait. Plan for it in the future and start saving towards your goal.

Coming up with a budget in this way won’t just help you buy an engagement ring. It will also make financial planning easier in every aspect of your life. Remember, the engagement ring is only part of the first step. Once you propose, you’ll need to focus on paying for your wedding and honeymoon, so it makes sense to get your finances in order now.

How to Get Good Value in an Engagement Ring

Now that you’ve set your budget, it’s time to shop for a ring. Since you’re operating within a limited framework, you’ll want to focus on getting the best value for your dollar. Here are some tips to help you achieve that goal.

Prioritize Cut

You’ve heard of the 4 Cs – cut, color, clarity and carat weight. For maximum value, focus on the cut (not to be confused with the shape) of the diamond. If you get a ring with an excellent cut, it will reflect light in just the right way to give it that classic sparkle. On the other hand, if the cut is sub-par the diamond will look dull. Prioritizing the cut will ensure your ring provides the most impact for your money.

Be Smart with Carat Weight

Carat weight affects the size of the diamond, and can really make the price go up fast. Save some money by buying a diamond that is slightly shy of a full carat in size. For example, a 0.9-carat diamond will cost less than a 1-carat diamond, but the difference in size will be negligible.

Consider Shopping Online

You can save quite a lot of money by shopping for an engagement ring online. Online jewelers don’t have to spend money on expensive showrooms and storefronts, so they can sell diamonds for less. Plus, shopping online makes it really easy to compare prices and quality between jewelers.

In the end, buying an engagement ring isn’t that complicated if you set a budget. Follow these tips, and you’ll have more time – and money – to spend planning your wedding day!

How to Find an Engagement Ring that Suits your Hand

By | Diamonds, Engagement Rings | No Comments

If you’re shopping for the perfect engagement ring, you’ve most likely encountered an overwhelming amount of styles and options. That being said, there is a way to narrow down your search beyond the standard considerations like the 4Cs (carat, cut, clarity and colour). You need to find an engagement ring that will suit the hand it’s going to be placed on.

Think of it like buying a piece of clothing. You will consider what the clothes look like themselves, but the real test will be how they look on you. It’s the same with engagement rings. In this case, it’s all about finding a ring that will complement the structure of your hand and fingers.

Engagement Rings and Finger Types

There are many guides out there about matching ring styles to your hand, and they all essentially come down to these criteria: finger length and width.

Before we get into our specific guide, it’s important to remember a general rule: choose a ring that matches your personality and style. There are technical considerations that come with different finger types, but don’t let that be the deciding factor. This guide is meant to complement and further narrow down your choices once you’ve got an idea of what type of ring you’d like – and remember, all rings can be re-sized and customized for your particular needs.

So let’s take a look at how an engagement ring will interact with your finger.The first measurement you should look at when considering a ring is finger length.

Long Fingers

If you’re dealing with long and relatively thin fingers, you’ve got many engagement ring options that will look great on them. Here are a few points to consider that will complement long fingers of a slender nature.

  • Wider bands will balance the length of the finger
  • Princess cut and round diamonds generally complement long fingers nicely
  • Long fingers can get away with bolder styles overall

This engagement ring is a particularly strong and dynamic choice for people with long, slender fingers.

Short Fingers

In this case, you typically want to choose an engagement ring that will serve to elongate the appearance of the finger, regardless of how wide they are. Note that when dealing with short fingers, you need to be careful not to choose a ring that will overpower the finger.

  • Narrower bands will create the illusion of length
  • Pear, oval and marquise diamonds will complement shorter fingers
  • Rectangular shaped stones can also serve to elongate the appearance of the finger

This white gold ring is the perfect example of flattering ring for short fingers.

Finger width is another criterion that should be looked at, but generally speaking there are more specific things you need to consider when dealing with thick or wide fingers.

Wide Fingers

Think of wide fingers as a bigger canvas for showing off the engagement ring. That means that you want to use it – don’t go for a small ring that shows too much skin on either side of it. Consider the following points:

  • Thicker bands will help balance out the finger’s width
  • Wide oval, marquise or rectangular shaped diamonds will complement this type of finger
  • Bold and asymmetrical designs can be put to good use in this case

A split-shank band such as this piececan also help to elongate the finger

Very Slender Fingers

No matter then length, it’s important to keep in mind that if the fingers are very slender, you don’t want to overpower them – even though longer fingers can carry a bit more boldness on them. That’s the only rule you need to think about in this case.

Big Knuckles

If you’ve been blessed with big knuckles, you might want to take attention away from them and make sure people are focusing on the ring. Wide bands and ornate centres are a great way to achieve this.

This round-cut diamond engagement ring with a double-cushion halo creates the perfect eye-catching focal point.

These simple guidelines will help refine your search for the perfect engagement ring without compromising your personal style. Browse Randor’s wide range of styles and designs with this in mind, and be sure to reach out if you have any questions.

Planning the Perfect Proposal

By | Diamonds, Engagement Rings, Inspiration | No Comments

The time has come for you to ask your partner to tie the knot and you think to yourself how am I going to do this? The truth is, planning the perfect proposal can be a lot of pressure. There are decisions to make, a meld of choices and it can be really simple and personal or more lavish and public. Here are some considerations to help you work out the fine details for the perfect proposal.

Finding the right engagement ring

This is the first step. Have you and your fiancée-to-be spoken about ring designs? Do you have any indications of what they like or do not like from friends or family? Take the time to make a detailed account of their preferences and browse our selections of rings to find fitting choices or think about designing a custom ring!


Does your partner love the wintertime? Have they fancied being proposed to on a white Christmas or would a cottage in the summertime be more their speed? Picking a comfortable time to propose to your loved one adds an even sweeter note to an already sweet gesture.

Timing factors include:

  • Their favourite season(s)
  • The location
  • How busy they are
  • Their schedule and plans

Make sure to pick a time that considers all of these factors so your partner feel like they were truly thought of in the proposal.

 Alone or together

Another thing to consider is who to involve in your proposal. Do you involve family or friends? Or do you just keep it the two of you? This is something that you, the one proposing of course, have to feel out. It could be really fun to involve friends and family (at a holiday dinner as an example) but many people prefer to keep things close and intimate, too. Think about your fiancée and what they would enjoy the most and choose wisely!

Defining Features

 Some defining features to make your proposal stand out beyond the gorgeous engagement ring, timing and location include:

Hiring a photographer – Capture that moment of surprise in a beautiful photo, a keepsake to put in the home you plan to build together. This could be an amazing addition to wedding photos you’ll take in the future.

Integrating music – If there’s a particular song that signifies your relationship, why not make an added romantic and include it in your proposal?

Creating a personal motif – Find a symbol that points back to a pivotal moment in your relationship – a joke, a moment, your first date etc. This will make your gesture even more personal and remind them again why the two of you are meant to be together.

Let Your Wedding Band Complement your Engagement Ring

By | Diamonds, Engagement Rings, Wedding Bands | No Comments

Did you receive a gorgeous vintage engagement ring during your proposal? Or was it a sleek, modern and contemporary ring? Whatever the case, Randor can help you find the perfect wedding band to complement your engagement ring. These two rings should sit in harmony along your finger for the years to come. Here are some tips to consider when choosing the right wedding band.

If you have a solitaire design wedding ring with a princess, round or emerald diamond, avoid matching the ring and opt for a band that will bring out its best features: the diamond. This style is one of the easiest to work with because it has one main attraction!

Our Pavé set diamond wedding ring could be an excellent choice in this scenario. It features a set of three rows of round cut brilliant diamonds on an 18kt white gold band. This would add a little texture and shine to the duo without taking away from the bauble.pave1

Our Bezel-Set Band  made of 18kt white gold could also be a great option for a solitaire ring or even for a bezel-set diamond engagement ring. Its unique use of shape between round cut and princess cut diamonds makes it the perfect addition to add texture or flare to simpler wedding rings or to support larger unique standout pieces.


If your engagement ring is quite decorative, you might want to opt for a wedding band that has more solid features to strike a nice balance! Our Channel-Set wedding ring is a solid 18kt white gold ring that features seven round diamonds in a channel.


We can also custom design your wedding ring for you. This is a great option if you have an engagement ring that has specific requirements. We will examine its features, curvature and how it sits on your finger and design a wedding band with your needs in mind. If you prefer to talk to somebody before coming in to our store, ask us your questions to get the process started!

Think Outside the Box Next Anniversary with a Diamond Bracelet

By | Diamonds | No Comments

Anniversaries are great reasons to celebrate! You and your partner have been together in marriage for a year – maybe even many years – and that is no small thing.  A marriage requires work, patience, support, and mutual respect.  Being a good partner and being in a good partnership is worthy of celebrating.

In terms of what gifts are worthy of such a celebration, rings, while always a safe best, are almost expected as an anniversary gift.  Too add some more diversity in your partner’s jewelry collection, consider investing in a diamond bracelet instead.

More Visible

If you are going to invest in high-quality jewelry for an anniversary present, it would be best if it were in a position to be seen when it was worn.  A diamond tennis bracelet is pliable enough to sit on top of a sleeve or at the curve of a wrist no matter what activity the person who wears it is performing.  Our diamond tennis bracelets are strong, durable, and can even stand up to sporting activities like their namesake.

More Practical

A ring is a very beautiful thing, but it is often exposed to a lot of wear and tear like bumps, scrapes, water, soap, dirt, oils etc.   A bracelet sits high enough above the hand to be spared the knocks of everyday life, but low enough on the arm and body to be noticed and appreciated fully for its beauty.

When you are investing in a diamond piece as a gift, it is wise to make sure it lasts forever and is fully appreciated by everyone who can see it.  Randor Jewellery has a beautiful selection of diamond bracelets that are perfect for that special occasion to commemorate the love between you and your partner. Contact our diamond experts and find out more today.
