How to Buy an Engagement Ring
DIAMOND ENGAGEMENT RING BUYING GUIDE
Many of our customers at Monroe Yorke Diamonds are looking for one of the most important diamond purchases they will ever make. Their engagement ring. This raises a lot of questions from clients, so please find the Monroe Yorke Diamonds Guide ~ How to Buy an Engagement Ring below.
Not All Diamonds are Created Equal
CHOOSING THE RIGHT DIAMOND
Whether you are buying a loose diamond or one that is already pre-set in gold or platinum, there are certain choices that you will have to make to ensure that the chosen diamond or finished product is the one that you desired.
You will need to consider the shape of your diamond i.e. Brilliant (round), princess or pear or from the myriad others; the colour, the clarity grade and whether the size (or carat weight) will complement her hand. We suggest that you read 'How to Buy a Diamond', a guide written especially to help you make the most desirable choice of diamond for you. We also have the Diamond Education section of this website which is a comprehensive guide to everything 'diamond'.

Having never proposed before and never bought anything this expensive online before, I was naturally apprehensive about purchasing an engagement ring online. However my fiancé loved the designs.
I spoke to Sean several times as I was narrowing down my selection to which, Sean was an incredible help throughout the process. Overall it was about 1.5 month process from selecting, placing the order and receiving the ring. When it arrived (with GIA and valuation documentation) it was amazing.
I will personally recommend Monroe Yorke to my friends as they were incredibly friendly, helpful and kept me up-to-date throughout the entire process.
THE RING ARRIVED AND IT IS GORGEOUS!!!!
Thanks everyone that helped!

Have picked up the ring from the post office.

I appreciate the patience with the emails and I will definitely be keeping Monroe Yorke in mind for future jewellery purchases.
