Choosing an engagement ring is a very personal decision. Therefore, when searching for that perfect ring there are an abundance of factors to consider.

The durability of a ring is definitely worth considering, especially if you consider yourself a rather active person, a ring guaranteed to last throughout the activities of your lifestyle without causing too much worry is important.

So, with this in mind, we have created a guide to keep you on the right path of your search for some of the most durable engagement rings on the market.

Most Durable Gemstone for an Engagement Ring

First things first, I’m going to talk about gemstones…

There’s a reason why they say ‘diamonds are forever’. According to our gemmology friends at Gem Society, diamonds are the hardest natural material in the world.

It’s time for it get technical; so, for each carbon atom in a diamond there are another four surrounding carbon atoms connected by strong covalent bonds. This uniform of tightly-bonded arrangements is one of the most versatile and durable substances on earth. Making it perfect for a durable jewellery choice.

Because of this hardness, diamonds are a pretty withstanding gemstone to scratches and other minor abrasions when worn. Diamond rings are already a very popular choice among the newly engaged, but when considering the durability of a gemstone they often come out on top.

At AC Silver we are pleased to be able to offer our customers an extraordinary collection of antique and vintage diamond rings for sale.

The Most Durable Engagement Rings on The Market

Our impressive selection includes diamond rings from the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian eras, as well as Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles. We have found the best examples of their type, including diamond eternity rings, diamond solitaire rings, and diamond cluster rings in platinum, white and yellow gold.

Most Durable Metal for an Engagement Ring

When choosing a ring metal, there seems to be a ton of choice for your engagement ring. Perhaps you’ve considered platinum or maybe even a coloured gold ring has crossed your mind. But when it comes to durability, there are metals that work and others not so much.

Engagement rings made of white and yellow 18 carat gold metals are two very popular choices among brides-to-be. Both these metals offer a sense of style and class as well a level of durability.

Having said this, if its long-lasting durability you’re after, platinum is a fantastic choice for an engagement ring. This metal is a lot stronger than gold alloy and is a lot less likely to become dented or scratched.

Platinum has a silvery hue which means that as well as being a strong durable metal, it’s also beautifully elegant choice for an engagement ring. With the right care, your platinum ring can remain as beautiful as you bought it in years to come.

Here are some of our own stunning platinum durable engagement rings we have for sale:

Most Durable Engagement Ring Setting

There is a large choice of ring settings to consider, if we are just looking at durability then we will focus on a collet/ bezel setting which embodies the height of durability when it comes to engagement rings.

A collet setting uses a thin metal rim in order to secure a gemstone completely or partially, providing excellent protection against impact and daily wear. Often, collet set rings are amongst the most durable and secure due to their particularly low profile. Unlike claw set engagement rings they are less likely to get caught on object such as clothing and other materials you may come into contact with on a day-to-day basis.

At AC Silver we are pleased to be able to offer our customers a large collection of antique and vintage collet set engagement rings. Let’s take a quick look at what some our diverse collection includes:
