Pop The Question with a Rose Gold Engagement Ring This Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day brackets the end of engagement season – you’ll recall, per the influx of announcements on your social feeds, that it began around Thanksgiving. And if you’re on #ringwatch, you’re hoping your number is about to be called…and that your boyfriend has something up his sleeve for next week. And wouldn’t it be romantic, and an appropriate ode to the holiday itself, if your engagement ring was just as sweet as Valentine’s Day itself? Yes! It would! And there’s no palette that screams V-Day like pink and red. Both of which are lovely alloys of gold that create the Read More →

Engagement Ring Budget Series: Under $6000

This week, I’ll be sharing my favorite engagement rings in our most popular budgets. The average ring at RLJ sells for anywhere from $4,000 – $8,000, (which makes sense, with he average US engagement ring falling right around $5,000.) We have a generous amount grooms who do shop above this budget, but for the most part, we want to ensure we have a huge selection for our guys shopping in that budget. Now that we’re halfway through this week’s budget engagement ring series, you’ll see more and more variety. There is a big difference in what $4000 can buy vs. Read More →

Emerald Cut Engagement Ring Eye Candy

I’ve waxed poetic about emerald cut engagement rings before. And I’ve even broken down exactly what you need to look for when buying one. In short: You need an excellent cut grade. This goes for every shape of diamond – you need the best you can afford. But it’s especially important with an emerald cut because the facets are so spare. Which means you also need a higher than average clarity grade. I wouldn’t recommend going below a VS (Very Slightly Included) grade, though there are always exceptions. Remember to shop for the diamond and not the certificate. Trust me, Read More →

Top 10 Uneek Engagement Rings of 2015

Uneek is one of my favorite brands at RLJ. I love their curved style, the style of their micropave, and that their default metal is platinum. I’m also partial to their cooler tones of pink gold – it’s just very different from the rose you see in most other places. These settings also feature 2 carat sized cubic zirconia, so they give you a better idea of what a larger center diamond would look like in the setting. And this year, 10 stood out above the rest.
