Your Sparkle Specialists Are Standing By!
Choose From Ben Garelick’s Curated Collection
We do the first-round of shopping for an engagement ring for you — curating only the finest loose diamonds and the most exquisite ring styles to add to our Ben Garelick diamond ring collection. Browse our selection of wedding bands and engagement rings by following these simple steps below.
Selecting your engagement ring setting style
Whether you’re looking for a romantic, vintage-style setting or your gal prefers a more modern contemporary look, we have the most-loved engagement ring settings from the top designers in the world. We also carry a great selection of coordinating engagement rings and wedding rings preferred by many of our brides.
Select your engagement ring metal
Almost all of the engagement rings offered at Ben Garelick can be ordered in your choice of metals — 14K white, rose & yellow gold, 18K white, rose and yellow gold, and platinum. We’re happy to walk you through the different types of metals so you can find the one that’s best for her lifestyle, comfort and preference.
Select your diamond or gemstone type, quality, size and shape
While a diamond center stone is the classic choice, Ben Garelick offers the ability for you to customize your center stone for the popular moissanite, another gemstone of your choice. Ben Garelick only offers the highest-quality diamonds but within those select diamonds come a variety of grades. Our sparkle specialists can help you understand the diamond-grading process and choose the qualities most important to you. Besides the diamond quality, you will also want to choose your diamond shape. In the Ben Garelick collection, you’ll find marquise, round, oval, princess and pear-cut diamond engagement rings. Lastly, decide how large of a diamond or gemstone you would like. Ben Garelick has plenty of large center diamond rings in our collection as well as small-center rings, but the size really depends on your personal preferences and budget.
Step #2: DESIGN
Custom-Design Your Engagement Ring From Scratch
If you’re not finding exactly what you want from the hundreds of engagement rings in the Ben Garelick collection, you can custom-design your engagement ring from scratch to get the exact ring you’ve been dreaming of. We have expert craftspeople on hand who can take your vision and make it a reality. You decide the style you’re looking for, number and type of gemstones and budget and our designers will work with you to create the perfect engagement ring. We start by gathering your preferences in this form and return a FREE computer-generated design sketch to you within 48 hours.
Select Your Ring Size
There are several ways to determine your ring size, but one of the most common is to measure your finger circumference with a piece of yarn or string, then measure the string length on a ruler, and then convert the inches or millimeters to your ring size using a ring sizing chart provided by Ben Garelick. If you live in the U.S., you can also request a free ring sizer be mailed to you by filling out this form.
Select Your Engraving — Free On Most Rings
One of the last items for your consideration in buying an engagement ring online is crafting any message or inscription you would like to appear on the inside of your engagement ring. This optional service is available for free on most ring designs. You’ll just need to let us know when you order!
Step #3: TRY ON
When buying an engagement ring online we know our customers may want to see how the ring design looks on the actual finger it will be living on for the next forever. That’s why Ben Garelick offers a free home try-on service for all of our engagement ring designs. Just choose the design you love the most, pay a $200 refundable deposit, and we’ll ship you the sample ring design right away for free, along with a prepaid return shipping box. Keep it for up to two weeks to show your significant other, family and friends, then return it in the supplied box for your $200 refund or apply your deposit to your ring down payment or purchase. The rings are usually sent in size 6.5 or 7, depending on the designer.
