American Swiss rings available at branches in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban and other shopping malls and areas of South Africa can be viewed online from the catalogue.
Engagement and wedding rings are very popular amongst shoppers looking to buy at the stores which have a large range of styles and settings to suit every taste.
When a customer buys a diamond weighing more than 0.50 carats from the store, they are provided with a certificate of that particular stone from a leading diamond grading laboratory which guarantees its certification. Clients then understand that they can be sure they are getting what they pay for which offers protection for their investment.
Not only for women either, there is men’s jewellery available to buy countrywide.

Choosing the right wedding or engagement ring
Because there are so many different types of engagement and wedding rings to choose from, making the right choice can be incredibly difficult.
In the past, engagement rings were traditionally made out of yellow gold and were set with one diamond in the very centre of a thin band (obviously, the size and clarity of the diamond and thickness, depth and carats differed.
Wedding rings were traditionally made out of a single shallow, thin yellow gold band. They were often inscribed on the inside of the band with a message, a name or a date.
However, engagement and wedding rings nowadays differ widely from person to person. Different metals, including silver, white gold and platinum are used for the bands while any stone from a sapphire to a black diamond are used.
The design of the ring also differs greatly from ring to ring, with two or three interlinked rings worn together, looped rings, rings with a set of stones or miniature sculpture and rings with stones set all the way around are worn.
In order to ensure that you make the right choice, especially if you are purchasing a ring for someone else, follow this advice:
- What does your partner’s other jewellery look like?
- Has your partner ever made a comment about a ring she or he has seen in a store, a magazine, on TV or on a friend?
- What colour precious metal and stone would suit your partner’s skin tone, hair colour and eye colour?
- What type of ring would withstand regular wear but still look amazing?
- What do the different precious stones symbolise? Would you like to work this into your choice?
Sticking to your budget
The other important part of buying a ring is sticking to your budget. Fortunately, you can still get an amazing ring even if you cannot afford to pay for it all at once.
