• Choosing the right carat weight
  • Choose the carat of the jewel according to your budget
  • Keep the bride-to-be into account

An engagement ring is a jewel that she will treasure throughout her life. Precisely for this reason her future husband has to choose the perfect ring to propose with. In addition to the precious metal of the engagement ring and the shape of the diamond, the carat weight of the ring should not be taken lightly. For a diamond engagement ring, how many carats should you choose?

Choose the carat of the jewel according to your budget

With jewellery, carat is used to represent the purity of precious metals such as gold. Whichever type of metal you choose for your engagement ring, note that the quality of the ring will depend in large part on the carat. At BAUNAT, we always work with 18 carat gold jewellery, because it is the most suitable carat for jewellery making. BAUNAT offers jewellery made using 18 carats white gold, red gold and yellow gold.

For the alloy of the ring, jewellers combine gold with different precious metals. For example, in an 18 carat gold ring, 75% pure gold is used, mixed with 25% silver, copper, or palladium. Discover our full collection of gold engagement rings at the BAUNAT web shop, and contact us for any questions you might have.

Keep the bride-to-be into account

In addition to the carat of the metal, you also have to think about the carat weight of the diamond when buying an engagement ring. With diamonds, one carat corresponds with a weight of 0.2 grams. How about buying this beautiful 0.50 carat white gold trilogy ring?

However, if your other half has a soft spot for rings with larger stones, it could be better to propose to her with a diamond ring with a higher carat weight, such as this white gold engagement ring with a 1.00 carat solitaire diamond.
