The Jackal: How to buy a diamond engagement ring

Words by Alice Edwards courtesy of 

There are no two ways about it: buying an engagement ring can be intimidating. Aside from the magnitude of the moment, there’s a huge amount to consider. What kind of ring does she want? What does a smart-thinking man need to consider before popping the question? Just how much should you spend? What, for pity’s sake, are the rules? Well, worry not. The Jackal has partnered with Bucherer Fine Jewellery to help you navigate this momentous occasion.


It’s a once-in-a-lifetime choice that you have to make. So, no pressure then. The question now is – what does she want in an engagement ring? What will she be happy to wear, day in and day out, for the rest of her life? Here’s three of our suggestions to get you started.


Is she one for making a statement? Then this eye-catching ring from the Joy collection could be the way to go. It features a brilliant cut – one of the jeweller’s most popular cuts – 0.75 carat diamond, surrounded by accompanying smaller stones. The ring is set on a simple white gold band that lets the diamonds do all the talking.

Or is vintage-inspired understated elegance more her thing? This timeless white gold band from the Romance collection features a brilliant cut 0.5 carat diamond, accompanied by several smaller stones of decreasing size. The effect is pared-back, delicate and tasteful – a ring that she’ll be pleased to wear for the rest of her life.

If in doubt, your best bet is to keep it simple. This generous 1.08 carat diamond ring is part of the 1888 collection, and features a platinum band with a single, statement stone. With a high colour grade and excellent clarity, it’s certainly an exceptional piece – and not one she’s likely to turn down.
