The most important thing to keep in mind when choosing rings is comfort. A narrower ring is better suited for someone with small hands while a person with larger hands can wear a wider ring without disturbing the comfort. If you decide to choose narrow engagement rings, you can supplement with a slightly wider wedding ring and if you choose wider engagement rings, stick to a narrower wedding ring for best comfort.
What you should also consider before choosing an engagement rings Dubai is to get a ring that can match well with the wedding ring. That is, the rings should have approximately the same profile and design. In addition, it is important that the rings have approximately the same depth so that they can lie close together.
If it is one of the two rings that can be deeper, it is a single stone ring or similar. An alliance ring or smooth ring should be the thinner of the two so that a gap does not occur. Some want the same type of metal on both rings while others like the contrast between, for example, yellow and white gold. There is no right or wrong here, but we at VANBRUUN recommend everyone to keep this in mind when choosing rings. Those who prefer silver colored rings usually choose platinum or white gold rings.
CHOOSE THE RIGHT METAL FOR YOUR WEDDING AND ENGAGEMENT RING
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF PLATINUM?
- Very durable, much harder than gold.
- The heaviest of all precious metals (weighs around 35% more than gold).
- Allergy friendly.
- More unusual and more prestigious than gold.
- Does not need to be rhodium plated and is thus a relatively maintenance-free metal.
WHAT IS THE DISADVANTAGE OF PLATINUM
- Despite the hardness, scratches and marks appear over time.
- Is more expensive than white gold.
- Few goldsmiths in Sweden work in platinum.
18K WHITE GOLD
WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF WHITE GOLD
- Cheaper than platinum.
- The most popular alloy for many years.
- White gold is alloyed with harder metals and is therefore less sensitive to scratches.
- Many also believe that white gold complements white diamonds better than yellow gold.
WHAT IS THE DISADVANTAGE OF WHITE GOLD
- Must be redesigned after a period of use to maintain color and luster. This is something that VANBRUUN offers for free to its customers.
- Depending on the alloy, allergy problems can occur, especially when it comes to older white gold jewelry that may contain, for example, nickel. All our jewelry, on the other hand, is completely nickel-free and undergoes a nickel test before delivery.
WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF GOLD?
- Historically, the most popular metal for engagement and wedding rings internationally.
- Requires the least maintenance of all gold colors.
- Easy to work with for a jeweler as it is a relatively soft metal.
- Gives a very classic impression and fits extra well with vintage rings and models with intricate details.
WHAT IS THE DISADVANTAGE OF GOLD
- Should be polished and cleaned regularly.
- If you have a ring in yellow gold set with diamonds, you should pay extra attention to the ring’s chlorine as this metal is softer than other metals, which can lead to an increased risk of losing a diamond. We therefore recommend chlorine in platinum if you want a gold ring. This is especially true for larger diamonds (such as 0.70 Carat or larger).
18K ROSE GOLD
WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF ROSE GOLD
- Many people believe that rose gold is the most romantic color thanks to the red-pink color of the alloy.
- Copper, with which rose gold is alloyed, is more durable than gold, which means that rose gold lasts better than yellow and white gold.
- Rose gold is currently very trendy.
WHAT IS THE DISADVANTAGE OF ROSE GOLD
- A relatively new metal, which means that it is not as timeless as other metals.
- Difficult to match as the rose gold alloy differs very much around the world.

We notice a clear trend where we see that more and more people choose to propose with a solitary, alliance or other type of diamond ring, which we think is incredibly fun.
If you are free with a diamond ring, higher demands are placed on you who are to purchase it, you have more choices and there will thus be more decisions to make. The first thing to decide is what type of ring you think the recipient appreciates. A single stone ring or side stone ring which is the most common? An alliance ring or maybe a simple smooth ring?

DIFFERENT MODELS OF RINGS
SINGLE RING – ALSO CALLED SOLITARY RING
What is a solitaire diamond engagement rings? A solitaire ring is the most classic ring that very rarely goes wrong during an engagement. Stone rings are available in all price ranges and it is the diamond that controls the price. Does a solitaire ring fit my partner? It is a perfect ring for the classic woman who likes the stylish and simple where the need to take the turns and stand out is not so great. For example, our Crown Princess Victoria has a one-stone ring as her engagement ring.
A solitaire diamond engagement rings usually has four or six claws that hold the diamond in place. Six claws give a more symmetrical look and a better grip around the diamond. Therefore, feel free to choose a model with six claws for larger diamonds, or if you intend to buy a ring made entirely of yellow gold. However, four claws provide good durability and in addition, a larger part of the diamond is visible as the claws take up a smaller area. A tip is to choose four claws for a smaller diamond (0.40 Carat or less) as otherwise it can easily be perceived as unnecessarily much metal around the stone.
How big a diamond is included in a solitaire ring? Our rings can be selected with diamonds from 0.25 Carat and up, some models are available with an uncertified diamond of 0.10- 0.25 Carat. We have no upper limit, but the selected diamonds on each product side for each ring are 0.25, 0.30, 0.40, 0.50, 0.70, 0.90, 1.0, 1.25 and 1.50 Carat. If you want to choose the diamond engagement rings Dubai yourself , you can choose from our approximately 100,000 loose diamonds and if that range is not sufficient, you can contact us and we can arrange most things.
What is an alliance ring? From the beginning, this ring model was created to demonstrate the eternal alliance in a relationship between two parties but has become increasingly popular as a wedding ring but also an engagement ring. For example, Princess Madeleine complemented her side stone ring with an alliance ring as a wedding ring. Many people choose to buy this type of ring as a complement to a solitaire ring as they together create a really beautiful combination, others choose to complement with a smooth ring if you do not want a protruding ring but still something that shines.
How many diamonds does an alliance diamond engagement rings have? An alliance ring is usually set with diamonds around the entire ring but is also available in half alliance, quarter alliance and sometimes also in other combinations, feel free to ask us as most of our rings are in more than the combinations listed on our website. The most common types of frames are channel frames, claw frames and paving frames.
Channel setting is when the diamonds are in a channel which is then “folded” over metal on both sides to hold the diamonds while paving setting is when they are also held with small claws / grains in each corner where the diamonds are tight. This frame is similar to the fade frame in the look. Claw setting allows more light to enter the diamonds as each diamond is only attached with small, tiny claws. This socket is also called a crab socket.
What you prefer is highly personal. A channel-framed ring is often perceived as more “pure”, but unfortunately the diamonds are often slightly worse in place than the equivalent with chlorine. A channel-enclosed ring, regardless of whether it is in a half or quarter alliance, is also more difficult to adjust in size without disturbing the durability. If you want a ring that can be adjusted in size more than 1/2 size, make sure to buy a ring in a half or quarter alliance as a full alliance ring is impossible for us to adjust without first redoing the entire ring.

In the summer of 2014, Sofia Hellqvist received this type of ring when Prince Carl Philip proposed to her. What is a haloring? The halo ring is a ring model that originates from the 1920s and was seen several times in, among other things, the film “The Great Gatsby” which takes place at that time.
The ring got its name thanks to the halo / wreath that is around the center diamond, ie the circle of smaller diamonds that accentuates the center diamond. The advantage is also that the halo makes the ring sparkle incredibly much. The word halo stands for light ring or light courtyard. The ring is perfect for the elegant woman who likes the most exclusive there is and who prefers jewelry that stands out from the crowd. Celebrities seen with this type of ring are, for example, Jessica Alba and Gwyneth Paltrow.
The halo ring often has a cushion-cut center diamond, but is also common with round, oval or princess-cut diamonds. The larger the center diamond you choose, the more diamonds are required.
SIDE EAST RING
The side stone ring is perfect for her who loves bling and the little extra! What is a side stone ring? Here you combine a classic one-stone ring with an alliance ring and then get extra bling without being too daring. Our princess Madeleine has the kind of ring she got from Chris when they got engaged.
When choosing a side stone diamond engagement rings, you get to choose how the side stones should be framed. What are the different side stone rings?
