They are declarations that have been branded forever on our minds. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.  A diamond is forever. (Even, sometimes, when a marriage isn’t.)

It’s no wonder, then, that for many people when the time comes to buy a diamond engagement ring, it can seem like a daunting task.

There are so many options – princess cut or round? Solitaire or multiple stones? Set in gold or platinum? – it can be hard not to feel impossibly overwhelmed.

So, first things first: research, research, research. And don’t be shy – call up retailers and ask as many questions as you want. Because, as Lindsey Straughton of the British Jewellers’ Association says, “hopefully you’ll be looking at it for a long time.”
