With Spring now upon us in the Southern Hemisphere, preparations for the upcoming wedding season are in full swing. Along with this, many in love guys and girls in love are planning when to pop the question.

The life defining moment of deciding to propose inevitably leads to the purchase of an engagement ring. This decision also means deciding on how much to spend.

Purchasing a diamond ring, whether it be an engagement one or not, is different to most other jewellery purchases. Why? Basically, diamonds are technical and when investing a small fortune into such a precious piece of jewellery it only makes sense that you deserve to make an informed choice.
