Rings Education

Rings have been presented as gifts for approximately 6,000 years. Tracing the exact origin of precious metal rings is very difficult although researchers believe that it started with the ancient Egyptians and their ability to refine precious metals such as gold.

Engagement rings and wedding bands are commonly worn on the left hand and the fourth finger. This is due to an ancient belief that the left hand ring finger is connected directly to the heart with a vein.

Rings can be worn on any finger or sometimes even the thumb. At QP Jewellers we offer a free ring sizer so that you can find out the size of your finger prior to making a purchase to make sure your ring fits securely and snug no matter which finger you decide to wear it on.

The solitaire ring usually consists of one single gemstone such as a diamond set into either yellow gold, white gold or rose gold. This beautiful ring has been adorned by women the world over for centuries, and at QP Jewellers we believe such a timeless classic should be available with a choice of gemstones and not just diamond.

Our popular diamond solitaire rings are available in many colours and every size without adding extra time onto delivery. Our most celebrated solitaire ring can be yours with either a single beautifully cut round cut diamond, black diamond, green diamond or blue diamond. Our fancy coloured diamonds are hand selected and set into a solitaire band setting by our master craftsmen.
