This will depend on how much you want to spend. There are many different factors when it comes to the value of a diamond (see this video on the 4Cs – Carat, Colour, Cut and Clarity) so a conversation with your design consultant about how much you want to spend is important. Examples include:

  • A Round Brilliant Cut 1ct ‘D/VVS1 Ideal’ would cost over £7,000
  • A Round Brilliant Cut .5ct ‘D/VVS1 Ideal’ would cost over £1,600
  • A Round Brilliant Cut .75ct ‘F/VS1 Ideal’ would cost over £3,000
  • A Pear Shape 1ct ‘E/VS1 Very Good’ would cost over £5,000
  • A Cushion cut 2ct ‘E/VS1 Very Good’ would cost over £15,000

It’s best to look at your budget and consider your options. Watch this video here about how much a diamond costs.

British ring sizes follow the alphabet with the British average being a size M. A local jeweller can measure your partner’s finger free of charge.

If you’re planning a surprise proposal, you can discreetly measure a ring your partner wears or even measure their finger whilst they are asleep. Alternatively, you can ask a friend to take her to a jeweller to find out the size.

Even if the measurement is incorrect, most rings can be resized.

This is dependent on your budget but the following are ideal: 18ct gold (white, yellow or rose) or platinum purely because they are the most durable of the precious metals and will stand the test of time.

From the day the ring is ordered, it takes 4-8 weeks to complete. If you have a deadline, please let us know.

When designing a piece of bespoke jewellery, the initial consultation is complimentary and then for the 3D design, there is a £100 deposit which will be taken from the final quote.

Once the ring is being manufactured, an invoice will be generated where you are required to pay up front to secure your order. Please see here for other payment options.

Yes, we guarantee our workmanship for one year. If you are not happy with your product, please see our full terms and conditions here.

When you collect your bespoke piece of jewellery from Roseanna Croft Jewellery, you will be given an insurance valuation. We can’t recommend an insurance company but the best place to start is your home insurance provider.

Engagement Ring FAQs

A traditional engagement ring is a solitaire 4 claw or 6 claw. They are classic and timeless. However, you can always opt for a non-traditional style (see the next question).

There are many other options available such as coloured gemstones, precious (emerald, ruby and sapphire) and semi-precious (amethyst, aquamarine, tourmaline). Have you thought of using your partner’s birthstone?

You can also use lab-grown diamonds which are considered more environmentally friendly – see this link for more information.

Things to think about are:

  • Would she prefer dainty or more of a statement look?
  • Does she wear a lot of colour and may prefer a ruby over a diamond?
  • Will she prefer a modern or classic style?

If you’re still unsure, you can bring in photos of your partner for your consultation and we can decide together – we’re here to help!

With all the thought and effort you have put into getting her an incredible ring showing how much you love her, she won’t!
