Mark the Beginning of Your Beautiful Journey with Beautiful Engagement Bands
An engagement is almost as big a deal as a wedding. It is one of the most memorable moments in a couple’s life. It marks the day they decided to begin a new journey together and for the rest of their lives. For the friends and family, engagements are special occasions to get together and celebrate too. When it comes to engagement, there are no hard-and-fast rules – it could be a simple no-frills event or a mega gala involving thousands of guests. The one thing that hasn’t changed through the ages is the exchange of rings to mark an engagement. Thus, this is one of the most important elements of planning an engagement. So, how do you buy engagement band jewellery designs to will mark this special occasion in your life?
The Evolution of Engagement Bands
Engagement rings date back to Biblical times. The earliest recorded mentioning of an engagement ring is in the book of Genesis. Unlike modern engagement rings, this was not designed to be worn on the finger but was a nose ring. Since then, the customs surrounding engagement rings have varied from place to place. In the Roman Empire, such rings featured clasped hands. The Romans wore their engagement rings on the fourth finger of the left hand believing that the vein in this finger led straight to the heart. Today, there is no dearth of engagement band jewellery designs. From classic bands to modern cluster rings, couples can choose from a wide range of options. Eternity bands and couple bands are also rising in popularity these days.
That’s not all!
Engagement bands come in an exciting range of metals too. While gold bands are always a classic, pieces made of white gold or rose gold are not any less popular. Those who want the best of these three can go for classic trinity bands. Such bands feature three interlocking rings made of yellow, rose, and white gold.
At BlueStone, we have come up with a collection of engagement bands that are several cuts above the ordinary. Here is an overview of our collection:
Gold Bands to Mark Your Golden Moments
Gold has traditionally been the most popular metal used for engagement bands. Gold speaks of traditions and heritage. It is a symbol of strength that a marriage should have. Gold is also favoured because it is a hypoallergenic metal. If you are looking for something simple and classic, you can’t go wrong with the Soulmate Ring for Her. Many designs in our engagement band jewellery collection for men are also crafted in solid gold. These designs are perfect for men who do not typically like flaunting jewellery. The True Love Band for Him and the Sovereign Ruler Ring are examples of understated engagement rings for men.
Let it Sparkle with Diamond Engagement Bands
In the earlier days, diamonds were used on the wedding ring alone. This marked the difference between an engagement ring and a wedding ring. Today, however, many of our new designs in engagement band jewellery are studded with diamonds and other precious gemstones. A solitaire setting as seen in the Aphaea Ring for Her and the Moonlight Kiss Band are ever popular designs. But, you don’t have to stop at a single diamond. The Ezio Ring for Her and the Saturn’s Band are very popular amongst women who like a little more sparkle. Diamonds are popular with men’s engagement bands as well. The Hera Ring for Him and the Rebel at Heart Ring are two of our bestselling diamond studded men’s rings.
Eternity Bands for an Eternal Bond
The eternity band is a close second on our list of favourite diamond settings after the solitaire. The Antoine Ring for Her is a fine example from this category. This can be defined as a series of diamonds placed close to each other along the length of the ring. Traditionally, the diamonds run throughout the ring’s circumference. However, with time, it has evolved to cover only the top half of the ring and such a ring was called a half-eternity ring. The Celine Ring is another beautiful piece in our collection. Made of 18kt white gold, this ring features 17 sparkling diamonds set in an unbroken line. The eternity setting has gradually become popular with men’s engagement rings as well. The best engagement band jewellery design for a man who likes traditions and sparkle could be the Riam Ring for Him. Else, take a look at the Royal and Resolute Ring. When diamonds give your special moments a mega sparkle, why say no to them!
Add Colour to Your Special Day with Gemstone Engagement Bands
Diamonds are the classic favourite among couples around the globe, but you need not limit your options to diamonds alone. When you buy engagement band jewellery online, you can also take a look at rings with other colourful gemstones. For example, the Theona Ring is a beautiful infinity band with diamonds and rubies. If you are getting engaged to a woman born in December, this ring would be the perfect one. Why – because rubies are the birthstone for those who are born in the month of December. Similarly, if you are getting engaged to a Capricorn man, you could take a look at the Supremo Ring. When you want to add colours to your special moments, you can never go wrong with gemstone engagement bands!
His and Hers Bands
Many couples prefer to buy their engagement rings together and often they look for designs that best capture their special bond. For this reason, we offer a number of matching his and hers ring designs. If you want something classic, take a look at the Circe Ring for Him and the Circe Ring for Her. Both rings feature 5 princess-cut diamonds in a channel setting but the ring for men is slightly broader than the woman’s ring variant. The Ciara Ring for Her and the Ciara Ring for Him are another example of matching engagement bands. In this case, the difference between the two rings lies in the carat value of the diamonds being used. Couple bands are the hottest trend in the world of jewellery these days. So buy one of these designs and keep up with the trend!
How to Buy Engagement Band Jewellery?

From minimalist designs like the Purette Ring for Her to ornate creations like the Niamh Ring for Her, we offer something for everyone. Our rings are available in sizes ranging from 6 to 30.

You can also pick the colour and clarity levels of the diamonds being used. All our diamond studded rings are crafted in 18kt gold. But, if you are shopping on a budget, you could reduce the carat value to 14kt. This will help you reduce the engagement band prices to a considerable degree.
