How to Pick Your Own Unique Engagement Ring

There are three ways to purchase an engagement ring from Blue Nile, each with their own considerations and level of decision-making.

And because this is a very important purchase, it’s crucial that you get what you want, exactly the way you want it.

Read on to decide which way of shopping suits your style.

No matter what the ring or the diamond, Blue Nile’s brand pillars hold strong. We only sell high quality diamonds and jewellery that have passed our industry-leading quality standards, at prices significantly below traditional jewellers. Plus, we have a Diamond Price Match Guarantee, which means that you can’t go wrong with anything you purchase from us—be it a £50,000 engagement ring or a £500 one.


Preset Rings
If you prefer a gemstone rather than a diamond ring, and don’t feel the need for something custom-made, head to our Preset Gemstone Rings page. There you’ll find some beautiful styles likely to fit right into your budget comfort zone.

Prices for preset rings range from £450.00 for a Pink Sapphire Eternity Ring in 18k White Gold to £1,140.00 for a halo style Morganite and Diamond Ring in 14k Rose Gold. This Sapphire Ring with two half-moon shaped diamonds, one on each side of the 9x7mm sapphire, is £5,364.00.

The ease inherent in buying a preset engagement ring is inversely related to the beauty and quality of the rings themselves. In other words, these babies are no-brainers and get you a huge bang for your buck.


Build Your Own Ring®
This is where you’ll find the bulk of your engagement ring options at Blue Nile, with over 150 settings in four metals (rose, white, and yellow gold, and platinum) and over 150,000 diamonds from which to choose.

Daunting? On the contrary, it’s fun. Our Diamond Search allows you to see what diamonds of all shapes and carat weights look like on different settings. And our app lets you take a photo of your hand to see what it looks like on your very own finger.

Need some inspiration? You can even view rings that other customers have made, to get your creativity flowing.
