What is the difference between an engagement ring and a wedding ring?
Let's first outline the difference between an engagement ring and a wedding ring. Although both rings symbolise the eternal bond between 2 soulmates, there are a few differences between them in terms of both the purchasing process and their outward appearances.
You tend to buy an engagement ring by yourself, whereas wedding rings tend to be bought with your partner. According to tradition, engagement rings need to have a sparkling diamond, whereas wedding rings are more simple and smooth.

How do you add colour to her engagement ring?
If you prefer to keep things plain and simple, then combining yellow and white gold is perfect. If you are looking for something more eye-catching, then try combining white and red gold. A multicoloured ring might be a little more expensive, but you will be sure to have an absolutely unique engagement ring.

What should you consider when organising a proposal?
In Belgium, you need to register that you intend to get married at least 14 days and up to 6 months beforehand for civil marriages. You need to visit the civil registry where you live and where you wedding ceremony will take place. You have to bring your identity cards, both your birth certificates, any marriage contract and an excerpt from the death or divorce register if you were previously married.
Some people turn their notice of marriage into an event almost as significant as the actual marriage ceremony.
Are you ready to decide?
Not quite sure? Then consider a few classic choices. The most traditional and safe option is the round brilliant single diamond. But a diamond ring with several stones or coloured gemstones will also make her jaw drop.
