What to expect when shopping for an Engagement Ring, Silver Tree Lancaster

Silver Tree Jewellery has been accoladed with many awards for customer service including 'The Bays Best Customer Service' in the recent Lancaster Business Awards. Our dedicated Customer Advisors are knowledgeable and approachable. All of the topics featured in 'What to expect when shopping for an Engagement Ring' can be easily talked through in store.

What style of Engagement Ring would suit your significant other?

Our bestselling ladies Engagement Ring is a simple yet stunning solitaire. Do you think the 'more sparklier the better' will suit his/her personality? Or is a classic and simple style more suitable? The best advice would be to stick to your instinct, choose a ring design you like and try not to get too weighted down with all the information. If we do not have a style of Engagement Ring that you are looking for then our highly skilled manufacturing team can create beautiful bespoke designs in any diamond grade.

Diamonds and the Four C's = Cut, Colour, Carat & Clarity

The Four C's are simply a guide to help you make the best decision when shopping for your Engagement Ring. Brown & Newirth have a GIA trained gemologist working on site to ensure we have the best grade of Diamonds on offer in store. All our Diamonds also conform to the Kimberly Process, guaranteeing that they are only sourced from conflict-free zones.

Cut: the cut not only refers to the shape of the diamond (round, princess, emerald, oval) but the facets that the finished diamond is created by. The 'cut' of a diamond is graded 'poor' to 'excellent'. The diamonds in store at Silver Tree Jewellery are graded from 'good' to 'excellent'.

Colour: colourless diamonds are the most desirable with grades of colour stemming from D (colourless) to Z (light). All of the Diamond Engagement rings at Silver Tree are colour graded from D to G.

Clarity: most diamonds contain inner flaws, or inclusions, that occur during the formation process and most are not visible to the naked eye.

Carat: is the unit of weight upon which a diamond is measured.

Do you need a Diamond Certificate with your Engagement Ring?

Diamond Certificates are a good way to authenticate the grade of your diamond. The Diamonds at Silver Tree come with a GIA (Gemmological Institute of America) certificate or diamonds certified by the IGI (International Gemmological Institute). These organisations procure confidence in what you are buying; and also acts as a standard of excellence for industry professionals. If your Engagement Ring is not graded by a non-profit laboratory then it is only certified by the store/ dealer you have bought it from.

Do you need to know the ring finger size?

It is helpful to know the size of ring you will need but it is not a requirement. You are entitled to the first resize free of charge.

What precious metal do you prefer?

Our Engagement Rings are only offered in precious metals; white, yellow or rose Gold, Platinum and Palladium. The most popular precious metals for Engagement Rings are 18ct White Gold or Platinum. White Gold enhances the luxurious shimmer to a ring and compliments the Diamond perfectly. Although it is true that at some point your ring will need re-plating, as White Gold is essentially Yellow Gold mixed with white metals and coated, together with Brown & Newirth we offer this service free of charge three times. Platinum is the preferred metal as it is a naturally white precious metal, three times rarer than gold, is hypoallergenic (non-irritant), hard-wearing and needs no future maintenance.

Why buy your Engagement Ring from Silver Tree Jewellery?

Silver Tree Jewellery is a family-run independant jewellery shop, open since 1982. All of our Brown & Newirth Wedding, Eternity and Engagement Ring Styles have a TLC care card included. This means with your purchase you are entitled to Lifetime Warranty, complimentary engraving, a free resize and three free refinishes on your ring over its lifetime.

Engaged has a nice ring to it 💍

When it comes to
Engagement Rings there is a whole lot of choice from the different
metals, designs, diamond shapes and grades. The ultimate classic design
(and my personal favourite) is the Round Brilliant-Cut Diamond
Solitaire.

I spent a whole week @giagrams in 2019 examining and grading diamonds to which I have become a little obsessed!!

The
Round Brilliant-Cut shows off the uniqueness of your natural diamond.
With 58 expertly cut facets natural light enters the top of the diamond
(the table) and bounces around the precisely cut facets to give you the
brightness, fire and sparkle of a diamond ✨🔥

💎 @giagrams spent 15 years examining how light behaves in a round brilliant cut diamond
💎 cuts are graded from Excellent to Poor
💎 the better the cut grade the more valuable the diamond

At Silver Tree we actively seek out unique designers that
we know our customers will love and that underpins our own ethos of
offering luxury designer jewellery at affordable prices. We also love a
small business base, that like us, gives back to the local community.

Have a peek in store and meet our new designer jewellery collection, Anna Beck.

Founder
Becky Hosmer started Anna Beck 18 years ago during a trip to Bali. This
is where she met her future business partner, Gede, an inspired local
artisan. As the brand expanded, Becky moved to Bali from Los Angeles and
started to understand the magic and beauty behind the pieces they were
creating together.

Living and working with the artisans in Bali
taught her the art of jewelry making, as well as the art of mindfulness,
love and kindness. The jewellery collections are not only always
handmade in Bali but forge partnerships that are mutually beneficial for
the local economy; donating a portion of proceeds to support non-profit
local charities 🙌

Look good and feel good in Anna Beck 🤍
