My SO and I have been talking about marriage and we're going to shop for an engagement ring together. Where to start? Good brands? I know nothing about diamonds.

I don't know where you're based, but Hatton garden in London is a great place to start. Lots of ring specialists there who will be able to advise!

Colour, cut and clarity that's all you need to know about diamonds. Where to go depends on where you live. I always shop at the jewellery quarter for important pieces of jewellery where you have lots of choice and the option to change settings etc.

I would consider other stones too!

Messonite and emeralds, for example.

Hatton Garden, London. Cut, colour, clarity and weight. Work out what you want exactly then visit several different shops and argue price. They will all give big discounts off window price.

I got mine from The Lanes in Brighton, they had so many amazing vintage/unusual rings! Plus we got to have fish and chips afterwards x
