Engagement Ring Guide

Home / Education / Jewellery Guide / Engagement Ring Guide

Recognised by many of our customers as the most reputable diamond specialist of certified diamonds and fine jewellery in Malaysia and Brunei, we welcome you to the right place with confidence for your engagement ring purchase. In this guide, we will walk you through various things to be considered when it comes to buying an engagement ring.

Symbolisation of an Engagement Ring

Engagement rings historically and beautifully still symbolises a proposal of marriage, typically initiated by a man to a woman. Doing so, officiates a wondrous relationship that is bound by love and the sands of the time.

Though there are no rules applied to engagement rings, the most popular and adored ones feature diamonds. Gemstones are also used in some, both accompanying or as a substitute. With all that said, our constant reminder to you is that we are here to satisfy and fulfil your needs, be it gemstones, fancy shape diamonds or even pearls.

What Is The Difference Between Engagement Ring And Wedding Ring?

An engagement ring is traditionally offered during the proposal of one party to another. On the other hand, wedding rings are exchanged during the joyous ceremony that binds the two parties together as one officially. Frequently though not a necessity, more is spent on the engagement ring due to its housing of diamonds. However, there are no set rules for each couple. Depending on your preferences and budget, you may prefer spending more on a pair of wedding rings or on a twinkling engagement ring. You may also take a look at our wedding ring guide here.

Customise Your Engagement Ring

Our customers love our ability to customise and personalise their preferred engagement ring design if they are unable to choose from our existing wide pool of engagement rings. Be it to suit your design wants or budget, we offer flexibility in many ways. The best part? Our customisation and personalisation services are free! All our engagement rings are handcrafted by an unprecedented team of craftsmen in our in-house factory that have produced red carpet pieces. However, be sure to reach out to us earlier as these services do require a bit more time, approximately 1 to 3 weeks.

The difference between customisation and personalisation is:-


You may choose the diamond and existing ring design that is to your liking. We then handcraft it specifically to you from scratch, based on your ring size.


An entirely new design that’s to your heart’s desires. Something unique for yourself, one-of-a-kind that the market does not have.

Choose the Right Diamond

Undeniably one of the most important steps in buying an engagement ring is choosing the right diamond as it acts as the soul of your ring. As a diamond specialist, we are happy to be able to offer you varying qualities of diamonds (Estrella Diamond, De Beers Forevermark and GIA) based on your preferences and budget. We understand that diamond shopping can sometimes be confusing and daunting, therefore you may check out our ‘Diamond Buying Guide’ as well as ‘Diamond 4Cs’ guide to understand the basics of diamond. Here is a quick summary we present- among the 4Cs, the most important is the cut, followed by the colour, clarity and the carat weight respectively.

Fancy Shaped Diamonds

Did you know? 25% of diamonds bought by our customers and in general are fancy shape diamonds. This cut of diamonds gained popularity because of its versatility for different ring settings and cheaper price per carat.

Popular Metals Used In Engagement Rings

Platinum is one of the more popular metals used for engagement ring among our customers mainly due to its naturally hypoallergenic properties, higher density and weight. It offers a secured wearing experience and wears well over time. However, it is important to keep in mind that platinum is the more expensive option. White gold is used for those who want a similar lustrous white look at a lower cost.

As of recently, we are also seeing rising trend for rose gold due to its radiant blush-pink hue, naturally giving off a romantic appeal and yellow gold for its great complement with vintage style ring designs.

How Much to Spend on an Engagement Ring

This is one of the questions we get asked the most by our customers. Many know the old dictum of spending a minimum of three months’ salary on an engagement ring. Nevertheless, that old saying is nothing more than that as it doesn’t necessarily align with your set priorities and budget. Although it may be helpful to know the average amount spent for an engagement ring in Malaysia is roughly RM6,000, what really matters here is that Diamond & Platinum offers wonderful values and our sales consultants are always ready to help you with your perfect engagement ring, be it RM2,500 or RM100,000.

Find Out Your Ring Size

Here are some great tips and tools for measuring your ring size. The most accurate method is by visiting our showrooms and trying on our rings. Though, if you are unable to do so, worry not as you may try the following methods.


Have a slip of paper and wrap it around your designated finger before measuring it with a ruler.


As a point of reference, you may use a ring that you already own and compare it to our printable guide.
