Choosing an engagement ring is such a special occasion and we pride ourselves in delivering an unforgettable experience for every couple who choose us to help write their love story. Our selection of beautiful rings, bespoke design service and in-house workshop enables us to bring any idea to life.
The setting of an engagement ring helps create the style of the ring and its overall aesthetic appeal. The setting refers to how the stone is mounted or set into the metal band and ring designs are offered in solitaire, three stone or halo options.
An engagement ring is one of the most important and considered purchases you'll make in a lifetime and we pride ourselves on ensuring it is as seamless and an enjoyable process as possible.
We offer an extensive selection of rings in our showroom and through our bespoke design and workshop services, we can bring your most creative, aspirational ideas to life.
Buying your engagement ring with us provides a lifetime guarantee through an annual complimentary cleaning service or regular maintenance checks to ensure your ring remains as beautiful as the day it was purchased. We know how privileged we are to be part of such a special journey and take the utmost pride in assuring our couples that our service is an unequivocal promise of care and attention.
SHOP ENGAGEMENT RINGS BY CUT
From classic round to oval to emerald and beyond, the cut of the stone is such a personal choice and influenced by a myriad of emotions. Whether it's a current trend, a sentimental attachment to a memory of a family ring or quite simply an aesthetic preference, having so many cuts to choose from brings an element of surprise to the process. Trying different cut stone rings on in person is the best way of knowing what you are most drawn to and from there, an informed and confident decision can be made.
Our workshop is a magical place, it's where dreams are truly made… once our sales team finalise the consultation process, our team of highly skilled goldsmiths get to work with their armoury of tools, components and machines. With their discerning eye for beauty, the finished pieces are nothing less than works of art. Creating from scratch by assembling the chosen stone, metal and setting or recreating an old ring style into new, the workshop energy is electric, sparking true joy.
Diamonds are said to be a girl's best friend, however that friendship status is continually rivalled with other beautiful alternatives. Our selection of engagement rings vary from diamonds (white, yellow, pink), sapphire, emerald and we can source ruby, aquamarine or any other gemstone of choice.
Planning a wedding is a wonderful process but with many different moving parts, it can become a little overwhelming. Between choosing an engagement ring, complimentary wedding bands as well as bridesmaid and best man gifts, there are many decisions to be made. We pride ourselves in ensuring you are armed with all the knowledge you need to guide your decisions with confidence and excitement. We love hearing from couples on their wedding journey so feel free to book an appointment over the phone or in person and before you know it, the 'to do' list will be so much lighter.
Platinum, yellow, white or rose gold... choosing the metal in which the stone is set in tends to be a quick decision as it's based on personal style. However, there are other considerations to take into account such as cost and practicality. We are here to guide the decision and the final choice best reflects the wearer's day-to-day lifestyle.

Choose from our selection of gifts to acknowledge their kindness and remind them of the special day.
Here are the most commonly asked engagement ring questions & answers that we've received over the years:
How much should be spent on an engagement ring?
While the age-old tradition states you should spend three months’ salary on an engagement ring, we at Paul Sheeran Jewellers believe that the price tag by no means represents how much you love your partner. So no pressure, there really is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, just like there are no one-size-fits-all rings!
Our engagement ring collection includes a range of options at varying price points. When you come to us to find an engagement ring, we work with you to understand your partner’s likes, dislikes and styles, sharing with you our extensive collection of options in various styles and ultimately, helping you choose the perfect one.
We also offer a finance option, allowing you to spread the cost of your engagement ring purchase over interest-free monthly instalments. Speak to our team for more information.
What price do engagement rings start at?
The price of a ring will depend on a variety of factors and the '4 C's' (clarity, cut, colour and carat) are a good guide. Each of these will impact price and very often it is mistakenly assumed that the size of the stone will be the most influential factor in the price which is not necessarily the case. For example a 3 carat diamond which is graded as having a poor clarity or cut rating will likely be less expensive than a 1 carat diamond which is graded as colourless with an excellent cut rating. Our highly experienced team are trained diamond graders and are adept at working with all budgets and requirements to ensure every customer leaves our store with the ring of their dreams.
Is it best to buy both the engagement ring and wedding band together?
It really depends on the individual, buying both at the same time would be more convenient as it would mean you would complete the process in less time however typically choosing the engagement ring is more time-consuming and requires a more in-depth discussion around styles, budget, lifestyle etc. Our recommendation would be to split the process, concentrate on the engagement ring first and fully enjoy the experience, then approximately 6 months before the wedding get in touch to make an appointment to start the wedding band journey.
How do I know what size engagement ring to buy?
The best way to ensure you buy the right sized engagement ring is to first find out your partner’s size. Of course, when planning a surprise engagement, this might seem more tricky, but there are a number of ways to get your answer without ruining the surprise.
A guesstimate is an option, but there is always a risk of it not fitting so we recommend asking a friend or family member to find out from your partner for you, or, using a ring from their existing collection that you know fits their ring finger well. If you can get your hands on an existing ring, our team will be able to measure it and advise you on the perfect size.
If there are any issues with the ring size after purchase, we will happily resize it.
How often should I clean my engagement ring?
An engagement ring holds both financial and sentimental value, so you must ensure it is looked after well, this includes regularly cleaning the ring. We recommend that an engagement ring is thoroughly cleaned at least once a year.
As it is likely your engagement ring will be worn daily, it is bound to experience some wear and tear over the years. To prevent this, you should regularly inspect your ring and take gentle care of it using soft household soaps, for example.
However, for a more thorough clean, it is best to get it done professionally. For this reason, we offer a free annual cleaning service for a lifetime with every diamond engagement ring purchase. The service entails a close examination of the ring to ensure no diamonds have become loose or fallen out, and a polish to remove any visible marks on the ring.
How do I choose the right engagement ring?
With so many options, choosing the right engagement ring can be a daunting task. Of course, it’s always best to have had some input from the ring receiver, but if the proposal is going to be a complete surprise, we can help you make the right choice.
First, you should have a budget in mind as this will give you a good starting point to help narrow your choice. There really are no rules for how much you should spend on an engagement ring, so set a budget that works for you and your lifestyle.
Next, you should ensure you know your partner’s ring size. While it might be difficult to get this information directly from them, you can use jewellery that already exists in their collection to gauge the right size.
The last factor to consider is your partner’s likes, dislikes and style. This will determine your choice of metal and diamond or gemstone details. Rings vary from statement pieces to subtle, classic designs. Both are equally as beautiful and high quality; it all depends on what the wearer of the ring prefers.
