/ Why You Should Consider a Lab
Diamond Engagement Ring
So now you’ve made the big decision, you’ve decided who you want to be with for the rest of
your life. Planning the proposal and picking the perfect lab grown engagement ring can be
quite daunting. Read on for some tips and tricks that should make your proposal just that bit
easier and hopefully give you the answer you’re been looking for.
Deciding on the Ring
One, if not the, most important thing on your mind after deciding to propose will be deciding
on the ring. The variety and wealth of choices available makes picking out a forever ring that
much more difficult, but picking something that your partner will love and within your budget
is a top priority.
Lab grown diamond engagement rings are a perfect alternative to your traditional
engagement ring. Throughout history, engagement rings have always been viewed as an
expense that should never be spared on but there are a plethora of options available for
those who are conscious of their budget. Meaning lab diamond rings are a perfect ring
option for those seeking a more affordable ethical and sustainable option.
When opting for lab diamond rings it means that dreaming big can be a reality for a fraction
of the price. Choosing to buy online not only offers you more options but is also competitively
priced. Lily Arkwright are a leading UK lab grown jewellery specialist company that operate
internationally, offering luxurious and ethically sourced jewellery at an amazing price point.
Plan the Ring in Advance
Engagement rings usually take a few weeks to be made, especially if you’ve opted for a
bespoke piece, so it makes sense to plan in advance so it arrives in the timeframe you want.
All of Lily Arkwright’s rings are made by their expert UK Goldsmiths and have a number of
strict quality control checks.
As members of the National Association of Jewellers, they can guarantee that all of their
jewellery meets and exceeds legal requirements having been independently tested and hallmarked, proving their outstanding quality to customers.
A Sentimental Location
Making sure that you ask in a romantic setting is pretty crucial. Whether that is a public
affair with an audience or a small private occasion with no pressure, making sure you ask
in a romantic and sentimental setting is the crucial point.
The place where you had your first date, first became a couple, or even on a holiday
somewhere you’ve always wanted to go together; asking for someone’s hand in marriage is
the definition of a big commitment and taking the time to choose the right location is
Keep the Ring Hidden
One of the joys of proposing is the surprise factor, and making sure that your significant
other has no idea what’s coming. The big giveaway will of course be an engagement ring
that’s been squirrelled away in a drawer only to be discovered. Make sure that any ring
purchase is very well hidden when it arrives.
Why Choose a Lab Grown Engagement Ring in the First Place?
Gemstones grown in a lab are an amazing option for a number of reasons. The price of lab
diamond rings are around 30% less than their mined diamond counterparts and the clarity,
carat size and huge range of available cuts mean that a dream engagement ring will not only
be dreamed about but be complete reality! Thus offering couples a hard-wearing and
beautiful option that is both aspirational and achievable.
In addition to the drastic cost benefit, the ethical and sustainable nature of lab grown
gemstones is another draw that has made lab diamonds a popular engagement ring choice.
As no mining is involved in their production, customers can be safely assured that no person
or environment was harmed. The cutting edge technology that allows for lab grown
gemstones is a more ethical choice, and all Lily Arkwright’s moissanite, diamonds and
Chatham coloured gemstones cut out the need for mining.
There is no difference chemically and aesthetically between a gemstone grown in the lab
and those found in the earth, it is only their origin that is different. Choosing to propose is a
massive decision, but making sure you have the right ring is vital.
