An engagement ring is a lifelong symbol of your commitment and dedication. Choosing the perfect ring will help not only on the day of the proposal but also for years later. Hustedt Jewelers will help you find the perfect engagement ring for your soon-to-be betrothed.

The weight of the decision is significant during an already emotional time. Despite all the research you do on your own and all the information available online, it helps to have someone you can trust to guide you through the process of selecting, designing, and crafting the perfect engagement ring.

The engagement ring you choose will impact not only your pending proposal but also the pride you feel for the rest of your life when you look upon the ring finger of your future spouse.

At Hustedt Jewelers, we're committed to being the most trusted partner for every customer who visits one of our two locations. If you are shopping for an engagement ring in Bloomington, Gibson City, or the surrounding area in Illinois and haven't found the perfect ring, or if you could use a helpful, no-stress partner to help you along the way, visit Hustedt Jewelers.

Choosing the Perfect Style

One of the largest hurdles when trying to look for and buy an engagement ring is deciding from the vast array of styles available.

Whether you've learned what your partner is looking for in an engagement ring or you have to decide yourself, our team of experienced professionals can help in finding the perfect engagement ring.


One of the most important aspects of choosing an engagement ring is deciding on a cut. The cut of a ring refers to the shape of the stone in the ring. There are many styles to choose from, but some of the most popular include the round brilliant, princess, emerald, oval, baguette, pear, and radiant cuts. As with most aspects of an engagement ring, the cut depends largely on personal taste.


The type of stone you choose for your engagement ring depends on taste and budget. If your partner hasn't told you what stone they would like for their engagement ring, you can't go wrong with the classic and beautiful diamond. Diamond engagement rings are renowned for their brilliance, beauty, and toughness. Hustedt Jewelers has a great selection of diamond engagement rings to choose from if you decide this is the stone your want for your ring.

If you're looking for something other than a diamond engagement ring, you have plenty of options to choose from, such as morganite, ruby, sapphire, and aquamarine stones.


The band is the actual ring that wraps around the finger of your future spouse. Again, there are many options to choose from when it comes to bands. 

The first part of choosing a band might be the color, which largely depends on the type of metal used to make the band. You might choose platinum for its hardness, rose gold for its color, or yellow gold for its conventional charm. There are many metals to choose from, each with its own beauty and cost range.

Next, you must choose a shape. The part of the ring that leads up to the stone is called a shank, and there are endless styles to choose from: straight, tapered, knife-edge, split, bypass — you get the picture. Explore your shank styles to find one that feels like it embodies your future betrothed's style and personality. Some bands feature smaller stones or flourishes to accent the main stone, and some go with elegant minimalism.

Buying an engagement ring your betrothed will love just takes a little looking around and imagination, especially if your partner hasn't already told you what they want. Don't let yourself stress over finding the perfect ring — our team at Hustedt Jewelers is ready to help you with your engagement ring search.
