Diamonds speak volumes for: style, grace, love, sophistication, memories, phew! The list goes endless. Diamonds give a fairy tale experience to every girl who either wears it or dreams of wearing it. Diamond jewellery symbolizes poise, passion, perfection, purity, pristine, and everything that’s a class apart. Imagine a simple humble gold ring with the most modest design - uncomplicated and minimal. Now imagine the same ring with one or two diamonds encrusted to it. Which one would you wear?
Every diamond has a story to tell, an experience to give. Diamonds are not just perfectly cut carbon atoms with facets and surfaces, there’s more than meets the eye. Diamond Rings forge an emotional bonding with the giver and the wearer. Lucky are those who exchange diamond rings, for it will become an eternal reminder of their love saga.
How to Choose the Perfect Engagement Ring, According to our Recently Engaged Jewelry Expert
How do I even go about buying a diamond ring?
The first step I would make is having a conversation with your significant other about how each of you see the ring buying process unfolding. Will you be choosing the ring together? How do you feel about buying online versus in-person? What is the budget? These questions may take some of the “romance” out of buying a ring, but they’re important to have so everyone comes out of the process happy. (I think the proposal can be the perfect place for surprise and romance!) Then, begin researching cuts, gems, and brands you like—more on that below.
What’s the biggest mistake you’ve watched couples or individuals make when ring shopping?
Being on different pages about budget. I’ve seen this so many times, and it’s honestly hard to watch. Most often, this manifests in her falling in love with a ring that’s double or triple their budget, and then there are hard feelings on both sides. Getting on the same page with budget as one of the very first steps is crucial to everyone ending up happy!
Ask a traditionalist who pays for the ring, and they likely will probably look at you with contempt. There’s absolutely no shame in sticking to the opinion that the man buys the engagement ring, and makes a formal proposal, of course. But ask many modern couples, however, and the answer may be very different. But the buying of an engagement ring is neither the start nor the finish of the engagement process.

Jewelry is one of the highest forms of art, and due to its elusive nature, it generates a lot of thought and expression. Many of the famous voices have weighed in on jewelry. Here is a collection of our favorite quotes that relate to jewelry. Feel free to add more in the comments below. If we like it, we will add it. Please make sure that you provide a reliable source.
www.diamondwholesale.in We recognize the importance of having your dreams for your engagement and marriage embodied in the diamond ring you choose. Thus, we have compiled this list of tips to guide you on how to choose an engagement diamond ring.
Diamonds have an crystalline structure. This is why the ideal cut of a diamond is a round, brilliant cut.
A round, brilliant cut diamond has these main sections:
The table facet, or the topmost surface of the diamond
The crown, the slanted facets that connect the table to the girdle
The girdle, the widest part of the diamond
The pavilion, or the group of facets that go down from the girdle and meet at a single point at the bottom
The cult, the point at the bottom of the diamond
The Color Of A Diamond
It might be tempting to choose diamonds of an extremely high color grade for your engagement ring, like the colorless D, E, F diamonds, or the grades G, H, I, J diamonds that are considered to be white. However, one can also consider grade K, L, M diamonds especially if you’re working within a budget.
The Clarity Of A Diamond
F, for “flawless”
IF, for “internally flawless”
VVSI, for “very very small inclusions”
VSI “for “very small inclusions”
SI, for “slightly included”
I, for “included”
P, for “piqued”, which is the French word for marked
Now that you’ve chosen the stone you’d like to feature on your engagement ring, the next tricky part of building your ring is choosing the style in which to set your stone. In our experience, these are some of the most popular engagement ring styles chosen by our customers:
First, identify the diamond shape desired by the recipient. If you do not know and cannot find out, consider round or princess cut.
Set a carat weight minimum based on the recipient’s preferences. If they have their heart set on a one carat diamond, even the most beautiful half carat stone will be a disappointment.
Start with the highest quality diamond of the shape and carat weight minimum you identified in steps 1 and 2, and begin making concessions in the following order until you arrive at a diamond that fits your budget:
First, lower the Clarity. See clarity buying tips (below) for more guidance. Go as low as VS2 before making concessions in other areas.
Next, lower the Color. See color buying tips (below) for more guidance. Go as low as H before making concessions in other areas.
Finally, lower the Cut. See cut buying tips (below) for more guidance. Go as low as Very Good in round diamonds, and Good in fancy shapes before making concessions in other areas.
If the diamonds that match your revised criteria are close to your budget, consider shaving off some carat weight in order to close the gap. A carat weight difference of 10% or less will be very difficult to detect visually.
If after following the steps above, you are still outside your budget, repeat the process with new thresholds:
First, further reduce Clarity. Go as low as SI1.
Next, reduce Color. Go as low as J. If you know the diamond will be set in yellow gold, you could safely drop to K.
Finally, reduce the Cut. Go as low as Good in round diamonds, and Fair in fancy shapes.
At this point, if you are still outside your budget, your next step will depend on your individual preferences and needs.
If the diamond you seek is under one carat, you could consider a drop to SI2 clarity.
If the diamond is both a brilliant cut and under 1.50 carats, an L-M color may be perfectly acceptable when set in yellow gold.
If size is the primary consideration, you could consider a Fair cut round or fancy shape.
If you are still well outside your budget, you may need to consider increasing your budget or reducing your minimum carat weight target.
