Rings: How to Buy the Appropriate Style by Relationship

There are several events in life, where gifting a ring is a good idea. When you are choosing what style to buy, think about the relationship to the lady you are buying for. Different style of rings are better for different types of relationships.


Whether it is a birthday or special occasions like Mother’s Day or graduation, a ring can still be an appropriate gift. The style and weight of the gemstone are important.

For a mother, sister, or daughter, a 3-carat diamond solitaire ring, isn’t really appropriate. This is more of an engagement ring. For this relationship, you can safely choose birthstone, colored gems, or smaller diamonds.

Clusters of stones are better for this relationship than a solitaire. Ring designs that are flowers, butterflies, or hearts are perfect.

Birthstones are a great option for smaller girls and mothers. Birthstones are on the inexpensive side, which makes it a perfect option for someone new to jewelry. For mothers, they are a great way to represent their children.

If you are gifting a ring to a daughter or sister for high school or college graduation or a significant birthday, like a sweet sixteen, a diamond ring is appropriate. The gemstone you choose, whether a white or colored diamond is based on the personality of the lady you are gifting. White diamonds are classic and pink or yellow diamonds are fun.

 Friend Zone

Diamonds for friends can be a bit risky and should be carefully chosen. If you are wanting to stay strictly in the friend zone, do not choose a solitaire ring. That screams commitment, which is not what you want to say. Colored stones and gems are your best bet. This ring should follow the design of the relationships above. Overall, a ring is still a risky gift. Earrings or a bracelet may be a better option.


If you are in a serious relationship and are ready to get engaged, there are special guidelines for this.

For an engagement ring, size matters. You may hear it doesn't, but it does. This is the ring she is going to wear the rest of her life. Rings that are one carat and up are appropriate. If budget is important or limited. Multiple diamonds, made of smaller diamonds is your best bet. Larger, solitaire diamonds are more expensive.

If you choose a cluster of smaller diamonds, do not choose a design with an image. Things like hearts and butterflies are not appropriate for engagement.

As far as the color, white diamonds are always classic. Celebrities have made other colors, like yellow and pink, popular. Be careful choosing these options because they are a bit trendy. The color you choose will depend on what she likes.

When gift buying, rings can be a bit tricky. If the gift isn't for someone you are in a serious relationship, there are styles that are very inappropriate. Think about your relationship, and what you want this ring to say. Consider the color and weight before you purchase it.
