Selecting Diamonds for Your Engagement Ring
What kind of diamond is right for you? The right diamond depends on your values and personal taste but it also needs to fit into your allocated budget.
Four elements determine a diamonds quality: Color, Clarity, Cut and Size. The relationship between these four elements will determine the value of a stone.
Diamonds containing little or no color receive the highest quality grades in regards to Color. The most affordable diamonds contain more noticeable color.
A diamond’s clarity is graded by inclusions and imperfections. Nearly every diamond has natural inclusions due to the nature of its creation. Many of the inclusions are microscopic and do not take away from the diamond’s beauty.
Diamond size is determined by the carat weight. The smaller the finger of the wearer, the larger the diamond appears. For example, a 2 carat diamond looks much larger on a size 4 finger than a size 9.
A diamond’s cut is an important grading factor. Shallow, Ideal and Deep are the three generalized terms when referring to cuts. You want the ideal depth, not too shallow or deeply cut to lose light from the bottom or sides.
Avoid any color grade below H (too yellow) or any cut grade below Very Good (not enough sparkle). We’d choose a better cut and clearer color over more carats, but if she’s expecting a boulder, your choice is made for you.
Go Beyond the White Diamond
These days it’s cool to put some color on her ring finger; black diamonds, yellow diamonds, emeralds and sapphires are all fair game as center or accent stones.
Selecting Gemstones for Accents or Center Stones
The beautiful color of a gemstone is its most defining characteristic, and it gives the first impression to the onlooker. When deciding upon gemstone color, examine hue, tone, and saturation.
The most valuable gemstones are those that exhibit a pure color with depth to it that is free of gray or brown hues that make the stone look muddy.
