Engagement Rings for Christmas Proposals

Engagement Rings

While Christmas seems so far away, it’s actually just around the corner. If you’re planning on popping the question on Christmas, now’s the time to start thinking about the perfect engagement ring.

You want to give yourself enough time to find the right jewellery piece – or to design a custom ring that matches your loved one’s personal tastes.

As a family-run business, our customers are at the heart of everything we do, so you can expect excellent service at Banks Lyon. Whether in-store or online, we’ll help you find exactly what you’re looking for, so you can enjoy the experience from start to finish!

How to Choose an Engagement Ring

Picking the perfect ring can be daunting, as it’s a very important decision; after all, your loved one will wear it forever, so getting it right the first time around is crucial. There are a thousand and one choices of engagement rings, so it’s only natural to not know exactly what to select.

To narrow down your search, you can think about the material of the ring (for example, does your partner love gold or the sleek look of platinum pieces?) as well as the stone you’d like to get – you can browse our vast selection of diamond engagement rings or opt for a coloured gem if you want a more unconventional piece.

We offer ethically-sourced diamonds at Banks Lyon, as well as lab-grown diamonds, so you can rest assured that we’re doing our part for people and the planet.

Another thing to consider is the type of ring. There are many different styles and you’re sure to find the one that appeals to your partner the most at our stores. We offer single-stone rings, 3-stone rings, cluster rings, halo rings and, if you’d like something a bit more special, diamond eternity rings as well.

Your partner’s lifestyle is important too. Depending on what they do and the hobbies they have, the right ring needs to be comfortable to wear and stay on their finger even when out and about or when doing chores, for instance.

If you’re unsure which ring is best, our personal shoppers are always on hand to help, and you can also take a look at our engagement ring buyers’ guide to learn more about buying a ring for that special person in your life.

Buying an Engagement Ring with Us

When you choose Banks Lyon, you’ll get the complete experience. We’ve been helping customers with their watches and jewellery for a very long time, so you can trust us to provide you with the advice and support you need on your journey to buy an engagement ring.

We also believe in making the process as easy as possible. When you’re trying to find that ring, you might hear a lot of words like bezel settings or brilliant-cut stones – while these are normal terms in the jewellery world, they can also be confusing. Our experts will ensure a smooth experience by helping you understand what it all means.

Another reason to purchase an engagement ring with us is that we offer quality above everything. Our jewellery pieces are made from the best materials through the best processes, so we will always ensure you get a ring that will last a lifetime.

Our history dates back to the 19th century, so we’ve long since perfected our services to meet all our customers’ needs – and can provide expert knowledge honed by years of experience.

If you or your partner would like to see how a ring would look on their finger, why not try on diamond rings with AR? You don’t even need an app for this, so you’ll be visualising your favourite rings in no time with our augmented reality service.

Custom Jewellery Design

If none of our diamond engagement rings catch your eye, we also provide a bespoke jewellery design service that will redesign an existing piece or create a new one – ensuring you get the perfect ring to your exact specifications.

We have an in-house jewellery designer who’s happy to help you bring your vision to life; you’ll get a computer-generated impression of the ring for approval, so you’re still able to see how it will look once it’s been crafted.

For many people, this custom ring design service is ideal because they’re buying a unique, one-off and exclusive ring instead of choosing from a pre-existing selection. You can provide us with a stone if you have a gem you’d like to put on the ring or if you prefer, we can source a diamond for you, taking your budget and specifications into consideration.

If you’d like to have a completely original engagement ring to propose with this Christmas, talk to us and find out what we can do for you.
