Buying An Engagement Ring in Hong Kong: The Ryder Experience

23 March, 2016

The guide to choosing the perfect ring

If you’ve found the lucky person who gets to spend the rest of their life with you, then one thing you may be thinking about is getting an engagement ring. Not only is it great to have something beautiful to remind you of your upcoming nupitals, but it’s also a symbol of your commitment to this other person and the life you’ll share together. At Ryder Diamonds they believe in creating a wonderful and exciting journey to be remembered and enjoyed for the rest of your lives and with a lifetime of people wanting to know the story behind your engagement, it’s important to have the perfect ring. Diamonds have a rich history, but with so many options, it can be hard to know where to start.

That’s why it’s so important to speak to an expert before purchasing your ring, and Ryder Diamonds are our go-to guys when it comes to bespoke rings. Based on Queen’s Road Central, the team at Ryder Diamonds are always happy to help. They aim to help you find the perfect diamond and offer an excellent consultation service. Here’s a peek at the step-by-step process for designing the ideal ring at Ryder Diamonds…

Step 1: Get Inspired

Pinterest is a life-saver when getting married. Create a board and start getting a feel for what ring will suit you. It’s a great to have plenty of ideas and inspiration available!

Step 2: Get in Shape

Now you’ve got an idea of the kind of design you want, you need to decide on a rock shape. You can research different diamond shapes on Ryder’s website; from round brilliants, pears, emeralds and asschers, to radiant and oval shapes.

Step 3: Style

Which one will you go for? Solitaire, halo, side stones, diamonds in the band, split band or detailed engraving? The possibilities are endless. As a bespoke jeweler, Ryder’s Expert Design Consultants can advise you on the possibilities and variations of any design. Don’t forget that you can always shop around before your appointment to see how different styles fit on your finger.

Step 4: Sit back and relax

The Ryder Diamond experts will work with you every step of the way to ensure that each detail is exactly what you want. Once you’ve decided on the design, size and colour, Ryder Diamonds will take between 5-6 weeks to create your dream ring. Then you just have to pick it up and show off for life!

And it gets better. Ryder Diamonds is commited to educating you on the difference between cast and handcrafted jewellery, so they’ll be holding a ‘How To Design Your Engagement Ring’ workshop on 13 April 2016. Attendees will be taken on a tour of the workshop and will get to watch the action live, with over 20 artisans hard at work. After that, there will be a class on diamonds where you can learn the techniques and dedication that go into making these tailored rings. You’ll even get the opportunity to use a jewelers loupe! Drinks and canapés will be served, so it’s the perfect place to network and learn all about the diamond industry. Happy shopping, girls!
