Zero In On Your Personal Style

Your engagement ring can be seen as an expression of your individual style. From classic elegance to modern minimalism, from vintage charm to avant-garde sophistication, there are many options to explore. For those of you who may not know where to begin, take some time to explore your preferences and gather inspiration from sources like Pinterest, magazines, your favorite style icons, and even your own wardrobe. After you schedule a private consultation in The Brownstone, we’ll ask for some of your inspirational finds. From there, our team can hand-select stone samples we think will best resonate with you. We will work closely to help discover the best ring that reflects your individuality, and matches with your personal aesthetic. We specialize in fully custom designs, meaning your options are limitless. Whether you envision a classic solitaire with a twist or a bold, statement piece, our team will work closely with you to bring your vision to life.

Consider Your Lifestyle

Your engagement ring should seamlessly integrate into your lifestyle. Consider factors like daily activities and maintenance preferences — will your ring need to withstand consistent exercise or cold temperatures? Are you seeking something low-maintenance, or are you willing to invest extra care and attention? Our expert jewelers can assist you in selecting a setting and stone that not only looks stunning but also fits effortlessly into your life.

Examine Your Finger Shape

When selecting a ring style, we like to consider the proportions of your hand. Certain designs may flatter different finger shapes more than others. For example, elongated stones like oval or marquise cuts can create the illusion of length on shorter fingers, while wide bands may overwhelm delicate hands. When you visit The Brownstone for your initial conversation, we’ll have a variety of samples to try-on so we can decide what looks best.

Determine Any Meaningful Elements

At Hannah Florman Fine Jewelry, we understand the importance of infusing meaning into your ring. Whether it's incorporating a family heirloom, or selecting a unique gemstone, we're here to bring your vision to life. Your ring should symbolize your journey with your partner in a genuine and personal way. When you’re ready to start the engagement ring process, consider asking relatives for any antiques or important family traditions.
