Look into popular stones

There is a wide range of stones used in jewellery, some more popular than others. Diamonds are always a classic choice for an engagement ring but other stones make beautiful jewellery. 

Look into emeralds, rubies and sapphires. If you're on a budget, consider alternatives like cubic zirconia or opal.

Find the right size  

It's important to find out your girlfriend's ring size before you buy her a ring. You don't want it to be too tight or too loose.

The best way to do this is by finding a ring she already wears and measuring it. Alternatively, you can take her to a jewellery store where they can measure her finger. If in doubt, it's best to size up rather than down.

Choose a metal she will love

When selecting the jewellery, consider the type of metal you'll choose.

Gold and silver are popular choices but other metals like rose gold, white gold, stainless steel and titanium have become more fashionable in recent years so there's a wide selection available.

 Diamonds are an ever-popular stone for jewellery.
