By Joshua Hendren

Valentine’s day is one of the most popular seasons of the year for popping the question. In fact, around 6 million couples are likely to get engaged on Valentine’s Day every year.

We suggest marking the occasion with these beautiful engagement jewels, spanning fail safe classics to modern heirlooms. So, if you’re looking to make this holiday extra special, read on to our review of the best engagement rings.

White Gold

Put a contemporary lean on your choice of engagement gems with the frosty hue of white gold. Composed of yellow gold and durable metals such as palladium and silver, the material is coated in silvery-white rhodium, providing the metal with its signature moonlit sheen. Far more malleable than platinum, white gold lends itself to fine, intricate designs. It’s also slightly less expensive than platinum, making it an ideal option for those seeking the look of platinum with the history and tradition associated with gold.

Rose Gold

Rose gold is a great way to add a touch of originality to your engagement band. First put to use in early 19th century Russia by Carl Fabergé, renowned jeweller to the czars, in his famous Fabergé Eggs, yellow gold was blended with copper to create a reddish pink metal that was coined as “Russian Gold.” Today, rose gold makes a superb choice for fine jewellery and engagement rings, delivering a subtle, romantic colour that synergises perfectly with other metals.

There is no greater investment piece than a platinum engagement ring. The metal itself is naturally occurring and predominantly mined in South Africa. In jewellery, platinum has to be formulated with an alloy because, like gold, on its own, the metal is too delicate for daily wear. Thus, platinum is typically composed of 95% platinum and 5% cobalt or palladium. Highly resistant to tarnish, platinum is the most durable and hypoallergenic of all metals – not only is it perfect for those with sensitive skin, but your engagement ring will withstand the test of time with easy maintenance.
