Almost 35% of people like to present the engagement ring as a surprise and it all starts with creating an engagement ring that’s special, one-of-a-kind and speaks to your heart. We believe that one should enjoy their diamond ring’s creation process because this is an experience that is both delightful and unique. 

And while searching for the perfect engagement ring can be nerve-wracking but once you get started the excitement of building the perfect ring will keep you going!

What’s more, you can ensure that you get the best value within your prior-set budget, without compromising on the ring’s look and quality! 

The best thing about it is that you can shop from a wide variety of options from the comfort of your home. Brands like LovBe offer 60-days free returns and lifetime warranty on their manufacturing quality which is hugely reassuring when buying a diamond ring online.

Why you should build your ring

First, because it allows you to have fun and get in to the process of putting together the perfect design. It’s exciting and romantic and you will always remember it. One of the primary things to keep in mind when designing your ring is the fact that your partner will have to wear it daily, so the ring needs to suit their personality and lifestyle (think daily routine). We really believe that there are several reasons why one should choose to build your ring. Here are some of them: 

    • Building your own ring lets you include a personal touch into the ring. As an engagement ring is often given as a surprise, spending time to craft a unique piece is one of the best things you can do for your partner. It will come to symbolize your love and dedication to your partner. You can even think out-of-box with the concepts to come up with a fusion ring. Then, you can match the ring according to the taste and personality of your partner. 
    • You can focus more on the quality aspects of the ring such as color, cut, shape, and brilliance. By using the LovBe ring creator, you can get options to choose cut, carat, clarity, color, shape, and even price in real – time to create a design. LovBe aims to empower you by giving you the freedom to do it your own way. You can create a LovBe ring that aligns with your idea of beauty and value. 
    • LovBe’s ring creator is equipped to provide you with all the necessary options that go into making the ideal engagement ring. This includes the 360° HD videos of loose diamonds which allow you to see a diamond’s brilliance and beauty and certificates of the diamonds which attest the quality grades. This is not a feature that can be replicated when shopping offline.  

Declare your love with a LovBe diamond engagement ring. Play around with different shapes of diamonds, inspect the diamonds in 360 degree, talk to our diamond concierge and clear up your doubts, choose your setting style and receive your dream ring at your doorstep. It’s that simple.

At LovBe you can either start by looking at the cherished setting or by selecting a glistening lab grown diamond or a preferred setting style that you/your partner prefer. 


 

Purchasing an engagement ring can be a costly affair. Because of this, it is important to set a budget. Most couples find it hard to adhere to a budget when they start shopping. This challenge is eliminated when you get to build your own diamond ring. 

If you are looking for the perfect diamond (and then some) within your budget, you should start with narrowing down on center stone’s 4Cs – the color, cut, clarity and carat weight in the right combination within the budget that you have in mind. This way you filter diamonds based on your budget, while also eliminating lower quality of diamonds (4Cs that are unacceptable to you), and thereon.

We would recommend you follow our guide when you are building your ring, starting with a diamond. Look for the diamond shapes that work for your design or the idea of a dream ring.

At LovBe, we have almost 10 shapes of lab grown diamonds. From classic round, to oval diamonds, emerald, asscher, princess, marquise, radiant, cushion, pear and even heart shaped center stones of superior 4Cs.

      • There’s no denying the fact that brilliant round shaped diamonds are one of the most popular choices for engagement rings. One of the reasons why it is a popular choice is because, unlike other fancy shapes, the brilliance of round diamonds seems almost unmatched.
      • Oval diamonds, like round diamonds, maximize the brilliance. However, oval-shaped diamonds appear larger due to their shape and thus promise more beauty for the same price.
      • The princess shape diamond is square (or rectangular) and can be a great choice if you are looking for flexibility in your style.
      • The cushion shape diamond, almost like the princess shape, comes in a square and rectangular shape. However, it has larger facets and rounded corners, which gives off a better fire than round diamonds, though they may not be as brilliant. It is a great choice for a pavé style ring.
      • Emerald shaped diamonds are rectangular where step-cuts of the pavilion (the space below the girdle of the diamond), present as linear facets. It does not rate high on fire, but light flashes off this shape giving a mirror-like effect. However, inclusions can be visible due to the diamond’s glassy appearance and bigger crown area. Emerald shaped diamonds make your fingers look slimmer and appear larger in size too.
      • Pear shaped diamonds are often praised for their symmetry. A well cut pear-shaped diamond may appear larger than the round shaped diamond. They are also great as prong settings.
      • As for the Marquise shape diamonds, they have a rather symmetrical appearance and it is recommended to choose a prong setting that’ll protect the two ends.
      • Asscher cut diamond is octagonal and has layered facets giving it a high brilliance level and an overall clean look. It can look amazing with the solitaire, pavé, and halo setting.
      • The radiant shape diamond has four sides and has a superior brilliance when compared with Asscher. A 4-prong setting can be a great choice for radiant shape.
      • The unique heart shape diamond looks gorgeous in a three prong setting

Understanding the difference between the shape of the diamond and their characteristics can help you make a more educated decision on which diamond shape to choose.

Once you have compared your shapes in a 360 degree view on LovBe, we recommend that you filter your options based on the diamond’s cut.

      • It is this C of the diamond that determines the fire and ultimately how ‘shiny’ your diamond will look. The way the diamond disperses white light into rainbow colors, and thus, reflecting off the ‘sparkle’ refers to the fire.
      • Diamond cutters spend meticulous hours chiseling a diamond to have the perfect cut and maximizing the fire. There are different gradations of cut that you can go for. Better cuts will increase the sparkling intensity of the diamond.
      • Choose a cut on the scale of good, very good, excellent, and ideal based on the shine quality that you prefer. You can also opt for the premium hearts and arrows cut. It is a precision cut focusing on symmetry and angle.
      • The hearts and arrows cut, when viewed via a special tool, can reveal arrows on the top of the diamond and hearts when looked at from the face down. The hearts and arrows cut fall within the category of super ideal-cut diamonds. 

LovBe’s ring creator gives you the power to pick, view & do a side by side comparison of diamonds with varying grades of clarity (the number of inclusions or blemishes present in the diamond).

On the LovBe diamond ring creator, you can choose a clarity on a scale of SI2 to IF. The SI2 grade means the diamond is slightly included (inclusions noticeable under 10x magnification). The IF stands for internally flawless. The cleaner the diamond, the more the price.  Thus, you can compare the clarity of different diamonds to get a suitable one for your ring.

A perfect diamond should not have a hue. The absence of color in diamonds helps to understand the purity of the diamond. On that basis, LovBe provides you a scale that moves from D grade to Fancy Yellow. Generally, when colorless diamonds begin to show a hue, it is a yellowish tint. LovBe also offers fancy pink & yellow diamonds, if you are in mood to take your ring to another level.

Often people confuse the carat as the size of a diamond. However, carat is the measure of the weight of the diamond. Even slight differences of carat weight can change the price. This is because higher carat weights are rarer to find, making them more desirable as center stones. Carat weight can also affect the size of the diamond. Fancy shapes like marquise and emerald can give the appearance of a larger size.

After you have gone through all the steps, it’s time to put the ring together. The next step will require you to choose the setting and the ring’s metal. Using a custom engagement ring online has never been easier before. Try your hands on LovBe’s intuitive ring creator to bring your perfect engagement ring to life.


 

Choosing the right diamond is half the job done. But the right setting can accentuate the beauty and desirability of the diamond. When picking out engagement rings, you should spend some time figuring out the perfect setting that makes your chosen diamond really ‘pop.’

Here are steps to design the perfect lab grown diamond ring using LovBe’s engagement ring creator: 

Your budget will define the ring setting. Even when you choose to build your own ring, it is always better to narrow your search within the desired budget so that you can evaluate each available option. Some intricate ring settings (side-stones, detailed filigree etc.) can add to the cost hence try to find the sweet spot that will get you the best setting style. 

Next, pick the metal for the ring. Choose from White Gold (14K and 18K), Yellow Gold  (14K and 18K), Rose Gold  (14K and 18K), and Platinum options on LovBe and you can add your own unique style by simply choosing a white or colored metal for the ring.

      • White gold is a great choice for engagement rings. The 14K White gold has 58.33% gold and the 18K version has 75%. White Gold looks similar to platinum and hence, appears premium. 
      • Yellow gold can look gorgeous on many skin tones and even lower diamond color grades. Rose Gold is a combination of gold and copper and brings a gloriously feminine touch to any style. 
      • Platinum setting is a premium metal and will heighten the overall value of the engagement ring as well as it add longevity to your ring.

After you have successfully chosen a setting, it is time to pay attention to the diamond. Choose the cut, color, clarity, carat, and price of the diamond. Think about the style of your partner while choosing the diamond. It’s always better to match the stone with the personal style of the individual.
