How to Choose the Best Heart Ring

There’s a huge number of different styles when it comes to jewelry, and that doesn’t change when it comes to heart rings. Deciding on the perfect choice may seem overwhelming, but I’ve layed out a few simple questions to simplify your search.

Know the one you’re buying for. Firstly, do you know the fashion they wear? If they tend to wear subtle colors a nice pairing may be a more minimalist simple ring. Are they more wild and crazy? A flashy diamond studded jewel piece may be better suited. A ring is generally given as a form of love, caring, or commitment, but don’t feel that’s a firm rule.

Know the purpose of the gift. A special occasion may differ from a birthday, while a promise ring may differ from a spontaneous gift. While this isn’t crucial to your choice, knowing the rings purpose will help you pick the appropriate budget to spend on the occasion. Stylistically diamonds and white gold are generally associated with winter months and important life events, while yellow gold and warmer gemstones are paired with spring and summer months. Again, not a definitive rule, but may help you in the style department!

Don’t cheap out. If this is a gift for someone important to you I suggest you have a decent budget. No I do not mean thousands, but more than 5 or 10 dollars. Quality is apparent in jewelry, and while it may look the same in a picture I can assure you it will not look or feel the same in person. While everyone’s budget is different, look for quality materials. It’s better to for-go the diamond and have a quality gold ring than a ring full of fake diamonds.

The Styles of Heart Shaped Rings

There is an incredible amount of diverse choice in the world of heart rings (let alone the world of jewelry), but knowing is half the battle.

Materials

Silver heart rings – Sterling Silver is the most common form of silver used in heart rings. This silver is close to it’s pure form which allows it to keep its gleaming shine, but it’s much more durable than pure silver. A good trait to have as rings tend to take a bit of a beating over time.

Gold heart rings – 10 karat and 14 karat are most the most common purities when it comes to rings as it is again a much more durable mixture of gold, allowing it to have a longer life span. Gold commonly comes in 3 distinct colors: White gold, rose gold, and yellow gold heart rings.

Diamond heart rings – Rings covered in diamonds sparkle the brightest! Diamonds heart rings are incredibly durable and are usually embedded on some other form of precious metal.

Any mixture of the 3 – Unless you are looking to get a simple heart rings, most will be a mix of the three materials above. Diamond heart rings in white gold or diamond sterling silver heart shaped rings – they are all possible.

Before you buy any Heart Rings

Read these pre-purchase tips and advice. While I’m confident you know how to get that perfect ring already, these may save you from some headaches down the road!

Know the return policy. While most fine jewelry has amazing guarantees and easy return policies, it’s always good to double check – especially when the purchase price is high. Thankfully Amazon is great for this. All jewelry in the Amazon jewelry collection will have a straight forward and hassle free 30 day return policy, and most likely a very long warranty.

Check the markings. All fine and precious materials will include the marking of material used and more often than not the manufacturer. This information is a way of verifying its make and making sure you received exactly what you wanted.

Don’t skip the description. Precious stones and gemstones can be imitation or laboratory created. While not necessarily a bad thing, it’s not fun to find out that deal you thought you were getting wasn’t really a deal. If you’re unsure about the authenticity of any part of the ring ask the manufacturer to be sure.

Is the company legitimate? Make sure you’re not buying from a company made in the past week or a ‘jeweler’ that’s really a back alley pawnshop. Thankfully Amazon is filled with and has a ton of user reviews you can rely on.

Don’t leave it last minute! Imagine if your wedding ring was 2 days late for a wedding. Ok, ok, it’s not that bad, but don’t risk getting your gift late. A Christmas gift is best given on Christmas!

You know the materials, most of the designs available, and some great recommendations of some rings to get you started. Consider a combo and grab one of the to pair with your gift..
