Little girls grow up dreaming about their wedding day. It is the one day in a woman's life when everything is about her. By the time the big day arrives, she has planned the perfect wedding, including flowers in her favorite colors, a beautiful gown and the perfect ring. The engagement ring is a bride's pride and joy. It is representative of a couple's love, devotion and fidelity and a symbol of their commitment and promise to marry.
Those of us at Bonaci Fine Jewelers are ready to help you make the right choice in an engagement ring. We have been in business since 1962 and can help you navigate the complex world of settings, stones and precious metals.
Engagement rings have been around for hundreds of years. It is believed that the Italians began the tradition, followed by the Romans. Early Victorians exchanged 'regards rings' set with birthstones. Royalty wore rings made of gold or silver while those in the lower classes wore fewer precious metals. As time wore on, a single diamond became the symbol of an engagement.
Today, brides have many options from which to choose. Pink, red and black diamonds are growing in popularity as are unique shapes such as triangles, double triangles and cube-shaped stones. When selecting a ring, it is important to work with a quality jeweler who can help guide you through the difference choices available.
However, color and shape are just two of the choices a couple has to consider. Rings today can even mimic nature like a single or double butterfly setting or flower rings which are traditionally formed in the shape of a daisy. Stones in a circular form are designed to represent eternity with no beginning or end. A plain band can be engraved or come in an unusual metal such as rose gold.
Unusual stones are an option as well. Onyx, pearls, emeralds, opals or blue sapphires are also popular choices. Rings with three stones are said to represent the past, the present and the future. These are just a few of the options available at Warwick Jewelers. Remember, too, that some men also wear engagement rings. In Norway, for example, it is customary for both men and women to wear an engagement ring.
Our engagement season begins in November, giving future brides and grooms the time needed to choose the right ring for Christmas gift giving or for a Valentine's Day surprise. No matter what type ring has caught your eye, Bonaci Fine Jewelers is ready to help you. We will ensure that you are choosing the right ring for you.
