It’s time to Investigate!
Of course you’re curious about which engagement ring design best captures your true love’s aesthetic. A Browns expert will help you determine the one for your plus-one. Here are a few tips to get you started:
1. Observe the style of jewellery your loved one already owns and how often they wear it.
2. Have informal discussions about style and fashion, both great lead-ins.
3. Call a friend- A best friend, sibling, parent or close confidante can be your best resource.
4. If it’s something you both have discussed, go directly to the source. Explore styles together to get some tips. The proposal will still be a brilliant surprise.
Pay Attention To The Little Hints
Don’t overlook clues that can give away the special question you’ve got up your sleeve. Keep your proposal under wraps by acting casual and paying attention to the hidden everyday details. Check their social media and pinterest boards for some clues!
How does my first appointment go?
What do I need to bring?
Just bring yourself and some info about your partner’s style—a Browns Diamond Expert will help guide you through any unknowns. If you have a proposal date and price consideration in mind, then you’re already ahead of the game.
Right now, it’s all about gathering information to confidently make your decision.
What do I need to know about styles and settings?
Browns Diamonds Differ Based on the 4Cs. Less than 2% of the Worlds diamonds qualify to be set in a Browns piece.
When choosing a diamond, there’s more than meets the eye. Learn more about the 4Cs (cut, clarity, carat weight and colour)
How Do I Know Which Style Is the One?
Modern or vintage-inspired design? Diamond band or pure platinum? Cushion cut or round? This is what we do best. A Browns Diamond Expert will help you narrow down your style options with the right questions.
What Ring Size Do I Get?
A Browns Diamond Expert can assist you with determining your love’s ring size. If you’re still unsure, our experts advise presenting in a size M. Once she says “yes!” adjust the size using our complimentary ring sizing service. Don’t live near a Browns store?

Unlike other certifications and reports that may accompany diamonds purchased elsewhere, the Browns Certificate of Authenticity guarantees that the grade of your diamond is what we say it is- for life.
