Shopping for engagement rings is challenging. From deciding the perfect cut to the perfect band, there’s a lot to consider. If you’re not even sure what options are out there, don’t worry. Let us help you get a better idea of the different ring options out there from a jewelry shop right in Greensboro, North Carolina!

Van Scoy Diamonds in Greensboro is a great option when searching for an engagement ring. You can search for different metal types for bands, different styles of rings, as well as different shapes or "cuts" of diamonds. This might seem overwhelming, but we’re here to help walk you through it!

Start with the band!

Van Scoy offers three different metal types for bands. The first option is platinum, which is a silver jewelry that has more of a grayish tint. Similar to platinum is the option for a white gold band. While platinum and white gold look similar, white gold is a little less gray than platinum. The final option is a yellow gold band. No matter what you choose, each band offers beauty--it just depends on your style!

Choose the style!

Van Scoy offers 6 different ring styles: classic, infinity, halo, nostalgic, vintage, and 'pink about it'. Each of these styles speaks differently to each different person. If you’re not sure what the styles mean, we’ll be sure to give you the link to Van Scoy’s website, where you can browse through all of the different styles! If you're still not sure what style to pick, the classic style is a simple yet elegant choice!

Finish with the diamond!

Van Scoy Diamonds offers both natural and lab-created diamonds. Natural diamonds are sourced from the Earth, whereas lab-created diamonds avoid mining through Earth's resources to source the stones.

The diamond shapes include round, princess, oval, emerald, asscher, marquise, radiant, pear, heart, and cushion. To get a better idea of the diamond shapes, check out our free downloadable PDF linked below on the different diamond shapes and what they look like! Each of these diamonds then has other attributes to choose from. These include carat weight, diamond color, diamond clarity, diamond cut, and diamond certificate.

Finding the ring is the first step to the rest of your lives together!
