Do You Really Need An Engagement Ring In 2019 | Shimansky

Getting engaged is one of the most beautiful milestone moments a couple will ever share. While engagement customs are not universal, there is one tradition that has become cemented in many cultures: the giving of a diamond engagement ring. Worn to symbolise your love and the promise of commitment, an engagement ring is the most meaningful gift a man will ever give, and a woman will receive. Yet, many modern women opt not to wear an engagement ring at all. Of course, every bride-to-be has the right to decide for herself. There are so many beautiful things that make wearing this shimmering symbol of love so special. Here are five reasons to wear a diamond engagement ring.

We invite you to visit your nearest Shimansky showroom and our range of breath-taking diamond engagement rings, designed to capture your love forever.

A diamond engagement ring is unlike any other piece of jewellery. Diamonds have been a universal symbol of eternal love and commitment for centuries. The Greeks believed that Cupid, the god of desire, affection and love, has diamond tipped arrows with a magic power to draw hearts together. They also believed that the fire in diamonds reflect the undying flame of love. Given to a soul mate as a promise of commitment, a diamond engagement ring is one of the most powerful expressions of love.

Just as pure as your love, Shimansky engagement rings are crafted with the purest of precious metals, including platinum, palladium and gold. Where a typical engagement ring in 14k white gold contains 58.3% pure gold, Shimansky’s range of gold engagement rings are crafted with 18k gold containing 75% of the precious metal. The beauty of a Shimansky diamond engagement ring is only surpassed by the bond the wearer has with their partner.
