Top questions when buying an engagement ring

How much should I spend on an engagement ring?

Traditionally, it’s suggested we should spend three month's salary on an engagement ring. Here at Chupi, we believe you should only spend what feels right for you and your partner. The average price paid for an engagement ring in Ireland is €3800. Ultimately, your engagement ring is a personal statement of your love and commitment to each other. Our best advice is to set your budget and trust your heart; the perfect engagement ring will be a reflection of your unique story so will feel priceless, regardless of the price tag.

What metal should an engagement ring or wedding ring be made of?

Choosing the metal for an engagement ring is a deeply personal decision, so the true answer to this question is that your engagement and wedding rings should be made of the metal you most like to wear. If you don’t regularly wear any jewellery or have no preference to metals then the next question is what is your daily lifestyle like. Some metals are stronger than others so it is important to know how ‘hard’ you are going to be on your rings.

The next thing to consider is the lifetime service needs of your piece. All metals require some care and maintenance but some will need regular upkeep to maintain their colour or polish. Some softer metals such as silver are not suitable for lifetime wear as they can wear down over time, and others such as titanium are so hard they cannot be resized.

Popular choices for engagement rings include the warm, classic glow of yellow gold or the modern sophistication of white gold or platinum which is a wonderful option, celebrated for its durability and rarity. Each metal has its own charm, and all will require maintenance and servicing over your lifetime, so consider what aligns best with you and your partner's preferences and lifestyle when selecting the best metal for your engagement ring and wedding band.

How do I find out my partner's ring size?

Finding your partner's ring size can feel like a bit of a magical quest. The biggest thing to remember is that engagement ring size is not the same as a dress size! Rings are measured in quarter millimetre increments and confusingly, sizes can be indicated by either letters or numbers. Quite often the size measured by one goldsmith can be different to another as the tools used to make the ring can come from different manufacturers. So we advise you first choose the jeweller you want to make your ring and then work on selecting the right size with their guidance. If you are working towards a Cinderella moment and hoping for a perfect fit, one lovely way to determine a size fit is to borrow a ring they wear on their ring finger (The ring finger is the one beside the pinky!) If she doesn’t wear rings on this finger, enlisting the help of friends or a family member can be useful. For an even more secretive approach, we advise you to select a larger size to make sure that the ring will definitely fit on the finger when the big moment comes.

At Chupi we offer complimentary resizing for any engagement ring as a part of your purchase. We also offer a handy solution at that guides you through finding the best fit right from the comfort of home. Whether you’re borrowing a ring or using our app, ensuring the engagement ring size is just right will add a little extra sparkle to your special moment.

What are the 4 Cs of diamonds?

The Colour, Clarity, Cut and Carat are the 4 Cs of diamonds. Understanding how these four important characteristics of a diamond interplay to affect its beauty, rarity and value will help you make an educated decision ensuring your engagement ring is as valuable as it is meaningful.

Read our guide on the 4 Cs of Diamonds.

What is the difference between natural and lab-grown diamonds?

At Chupi, we believe every diamond tells a story, whether it's born in the earth or crafted in a lab. Natural diamonds, formed over billions of years, carry a legacy of timeless beauty, each one unique in its journey from deep within the earth to your hand. Lab-grown diamonds, on the other hand, are created using advanced technology that replicates the natural diamond-growing process, producing diamonds that are identical to their natural counterparts in every way.

It is not possible to tell the difference between natural and lab grown diamonds unless the natural diamond fluoresces (and not all do). So for the majority of diamonds, the only difference lies in their origin: natural diamonds are a wonder of nature, while lab-grown diamonds are a marvel of human ingenuity. Both are beautiful choices for engagement rings, so whether you lean towards the ancient allure of a natural diamond or the innovative charm of a lab-grown diamond, know that you’re choosing a diamond as special as your love.

At Chupi our lab grown diamonds are sourced from carbon neutral suppliers to deliver the most sustainable engagement ring option. For natural mined diamonds, we only source from diamonds certified as conflict free for our engagement rings, ensuring peace of mind and the highest ethical credentials.

What diamond shape should I choose?

Choosing the perfect diamond shape is all about capturing the essence of your partner's unique style and personality. At Chupi, we adore the variety each shape brings to engagement rings. The classic Round Brilliant cut is cherished for its timeless sparkle and brilliance, making it a perennial favourite. If your love leans towards something more contemporary and chic, the Princess or Emerald cut, with its sharp, geometric lines, might be the perfect choice.

For those drawn to vintage charm, the Cushion or Radiant cuts offer a romantic appeal. The Oval and Marquise cuts, with their elongated shapes, can have more presence on the hand while still creating a touch of elegant sophistication. Ultimately, the best shape for an engagement ring is one that resonates with your partner’s personal style and the story you wish to tell together.

Why choose a grey diamond engagement ring?

Choosing a grey diamond engagement ring is a truly personal decision, and at Chupi, we love how these unique diamonds tell a story of individuality and understated elegance. Grey diamonds are a distinct alternative to traditional clear diamonds, with their galaxies of carbon inclusions, are mesmerising to look at and yet still carry all of the benefits of diamond durability.

The subtle hues of a grey diamond reflect a spectrum of silvery tones, making them incredibly versatile and complementary to various styles and settings. Plus, their distinct character means no two grey diamonds are exactly alike, making your engagement ring as one-of-a-kind as your love story. For those seeking something different yet timelessly beautiful, a grey diamond engagement ring is the perfect choice to celebrate your unique bond.

Should I buy a matching wedding band at the same time?

Deciding to buy a matching wedding band at the same time as your engagement ring is a delightful idea and we would highly recommend at least considering what type of wedding band you would like when selecting your engagement ring as these two rings will most likely be worn together and should look and feel like they were made for each other.

The benefit of purchasing your wedding bands while buying your engagement ring is that it ensures both pieces complement each other perfectly, and it simplifies the process, making it more seamless and less stressful as you enter into all the preparations that come with planning a wedding day. However, some couples prefer choosing their wedding bands later, reflecting new chapters of their journey together.

At Chupi, we offer beautiful collections of wedding bands and wedding rings that can be matched with your engagement ring, allowing you to create a harmonious suite of jewellery that tells your unique love story. Whatever your choice, we’re here to help you find the perfect engagement ring and wedding band that resonate with your love and commitment.

What is the return policy on my engagement ring?

At Chupi, we want you to be absolutely in love with your engagement ring, just as much as you are with your partner. That's why we offer a flexible return policy to give you peace of mind. If for any reason you’re not completely delighted with your ring, you can return it within 30 days of purchase for a full refund or exchange, provided it’s in its original condition and packaging. We understand that choosing the perfect ring is a big decision, and we're here to make sure it’s as stress-free and joyful as possible. If you need any assistance with returns or have questions about our policies, our dedicated team is always ready to help, ensuring your experience with Chupi is nothing short of magical.

Should I choose a promise ring?

If you're feeling unsure about what style, metal, size or stone to choose for your engagement ring, or if you know that she would love to be a part of choosing her engagement ring - a promise ring can be a beautiful and meaningful choice.

At Chupi, we believe that every step of your love story is precious, and a promise ring is a wonderful way to signify your commitment and love while still leaving room for experiencing all the excitement and joy that can come from selecting the perfect engagement ring together. It's a heartfelt token that represents a promise for the future, whether that’s leading to an engagement or simply celebrating your commitment to each other.

Promise rings are versatile, coming in a variety of stunning designs that can be as simple or elaborate as you desire. They’re perfect for those special moments when you want to express your dedication without the immediacy of an engagement. Plus, they hold a sentimental value that beautifully complements your journey together. If you're not quite ready for an engagement ring, a promise ring from Chupi can be a cherished symbol of your love and intention.
