Planning your wedding requires making several decisions and spending a long time to choose the best and most suitable things for this important day that happens just once in your life. Many things require thinking such as the wedding dress which is the most important thing for this historic day but what is much more important is the engagement ring that is going to last with you forever unlike other things that will end by the end of the wedding ceremony. What makes the engagement rings differ from each other is the cut of the stones that are used for encrusting these rings and the precious metals that are used for making the rings and setting the diamonds. The most common precious metals are 14K and 18K gold whether they are white, yellow or any other colour. 14K gold is believed to be stronger than the 18K gold and will keep your stones more secured. Forgetting the best and highest quality rings, you have to look for the best jewellers. Here is a quick glance at the top 10 engagement ring designers.
