6 Common Myths About Engagement Rings

diamond ring engagement rings

The internet is rife with engagement ring and diamond myths and misconceptions, which can lead to buyer confusion and frustration. With so many resources at our fingertips these days, it's easy to get lost in a sea of conflicting information about diamond quality and ring prices in general. As a result, we've compiled a list of the six most common misconceptions about diamonds and engagement rings to make your shopping experience a little easier.

Fluorescence Is A Bad Thing

Fluorescence in diamonds can lead people to believe that all fluorescence diamonds appear milky, hazy, and even shine blue when they search for it on the internet. Diamonds with fluorescence, however, aren't all prone to these negative side effects. A diamond's color is often enhanced by its presence of a fluorescence, which acts to balance out warmer tones emitted by near-colorless diamonds. I-colored diamonds with different fluorescence levels can be compared, for example. That the diamond with strong blue fluorescence actually appears whiter and brighter than the diamond without surprises most people. Diamonds with fluorescence can have negative effects, but this does not apply to all fluorescence-enhanced stones. There are no "milky" or "hazy" diamonds to be found in our inventory at Diamond Registry!

Investing In A SI1 Or SI2 Clarity Diamond Is A Bad Idea

SI1 and SI2 clarity stones are referred to as'slightly included' because inclusions may be visible to the naked eye in these stones. A lot of people are afraid to buy diamonds in this price range because no one wants to buy a diamond that has flaws they can see. When it comes to the lower grades, most people don't realize that many diamonds in the SI1 and SI2 ranges actually have transparent or white flaws that can't be seen by the naked eye. There are better and worse SI graded diamonds because each diamond is unique. The key is to be able to examine a diamond and determine whether it is eye clean or not. This can save you money in the long run because some SI1 stones have fewer and less prominent imperfections than VS2 options.

The Cost Of An Engagement Ring Should Be Equal To Three Months' Wages

Engagement rings today aren't subject to any rigid guidelines. Having a ring that costs three months' salary is a rather archaic idea in today's society. Only spend as much as you feel comfortable with at Diamond Registry, where your design consultant will encourage you to do so. To achieve a certain size stone, some people save for years - while others do not. Making an informed purchase decision is the best way to ensure you're getting the most for your money.

Lab-grown diamonds, moissanite, and colored gemstones are budget-friendly alternatives to diamonds for those who prefer to keep their spending in check. A wide selection of diamond rings is also available, with a price range to suit most budgets.

Customizing A Ring Is More Expensive Than Purchasing An Off-The-Shelf One

At Diamond Registry. we get a lot of questions about pricing, and the following misconception is one of the most common. When it comes to ring design, most of our clients choose to customize their ring to fit their personal preferences while staying within their budget. Many of our customers are surprised to learn that customizing an engagement ring with us can save you money! Making a ring your own allows you to express your individuality while also saving money on future repairs and alterations. This is because the ring can be made to precisely fit the diamond's dimensions and the wearer's finger size. This means that the ring's design and quality are far more distinctive than those of a mass-produced variety, which is the norm these days. Additionally, custom rings have a more refined appearance, making it less likely that you'll want to replace them in the future.

Expensive Fancy Shapes

Fancy-shaped diamonds, which can come in any shape other than round, are widely believed to be more expensive. Despite this, round brilliant diamonds will always be the most expensive diamond shape. Due to the fact that round diamonds are both the most popular and in high demand, this is the case. It costs more to cut round diamonds than other shapes because more of the rough is removed to achieve the desired round shape.

Metals Of A Certain Shade Are Popular Right Now

The use of yellow and rose gold as metal colors has increased significantly in recent years. As a result, many brides-to-be are hesitant to choose yellow or rose gold jewelry because they fear it will become dated in the future. Only four metal colors have been used in bridal jewelry for decades, according to the facts of the matter. There have been royal families all over the world using both yellow and rose gold in their jewelry for hundreds of years. Metal colors can rise and fall in popularity, but at the end of the day, white gold, yellow gold, rose gold, and platinum have always existed. There is no doubt that these metal colors will remain popular for years to come, as they have always been readily available to the general public. When our clients see how flattering rose gold is on all skin tones and how white diamonds look in yellow and rose gold settings, we are delighted.
