Engagement rings are one of the first steps that are taken between two people who want to spend their lives together, it is a jewel of great importance in our life and we usually look for advice to buy the engagement ring.
The budget for your engagement ring
The budget varies depending on the stones and metals that are chosen. The most common in rings is the use of 18 karat gold and diamonds as the main stone, but if we have a tight budget we can lower the karat of the metal to 9 carats or use lower value stones.
18 karat gold
As we have said, the most common is first grade gold or 18 carats, this type of gold is made up of 750 thousandths of gold and 250 thousandths of other metals that give it hardness and color.
9 karat gold
9 karat gold is composed of 375 thousandths of pure gold and 625 of other metals, in modern jewelry pieces the difference between 18 and 9 karat gold goes a little more unnoticed.
24 karat pure gold
The 24 karat or pure gold is not usually used in jewelry because it is a metal that in its pure state is very ductile, this means that it bends and scratches easily.
Silver also is used to create engagement rings. However, putting a diamond mounted on a silver ring is a bit risky because silver does not have the hardness that 18 or 9 karat gold has.
Even so, there are models that are used as fake engagement rings created with silver and zircons, but their durability is much less than that of gold.
There are lab grown diamonds that are used in fake engagement rings because their hardness is the maximum. Its value will depend mainly on its carat size, its color, and its purity.
Sapphire is the second hardest gemstone with a score of 9 on the Mohs scale of hardness. The most common color in sapphires is blue, although there are other shades that are sometimes not even considered sapphires because they do not show the classic blue color.
A precious stone of more or less intense red color has a hardness of 9 on the Mohs scale. This stone is sometimes combined with others to create jewelry with contrasts of great beauty.
Emerald: One of the 4 gemstones, with a hardness of 7.5 or 8 on the Mohs scale.
The choice of the stone or gemstones for our fake engagement rings will depend on our budget and above all on the taste of the person to whom the ring is to be given. The premise at the time of the choice should be the stone that you like the most and that best fits your personality.
