A diamond can say so much. They're the perfect gift for that special someone in your life, whether it's a loved one or yourself. So, who better to talk about diamonds than an expert? I'm here to share everything you need to know about diamonds and why they make such a great gift for your loved ones.
How to pick the diamond engagement ring of her dreams
When choosing the ring that’s right for her, you want to think outside of the box. Don't just look at rings; try to think about what she likes and what she would like. Does she have a certain color palette that she tends to gravitate towards? Consider it! Does her style match up with any specific designers or jewelers? If so, those are some great places to start looking!
It's also important not only to jot down these ideas but also take time out of your day to bring them into fruition. If you see something online or at a store that fits into what you had in mind, don't hesitate—it may not be there tomorrow!
What to look for in an engagement ring
What does a diamond say about you?
It says that you're not just marrying someone, but a family member. It says that this person is part of your life forever, and will be there to support you through thick and thin. It says that your love is bigger than any obstacle in its way. A diamond can say so much more than those three little words: "I love you."
What does the shape of the diamond mean?
When choosing the shape of your diamond, you should consider the shape of your finger. A round diamond will work well with most fingers, but if you have a square or rectangular finger, try pairing it with one of these princess cuts: cushion cut or emerald cut (also known as modified emerald). If your finger is longer than it is wide, consider pear shaped diamonds.
What does the cut of the diamond mean?
The cut of a diamond is one of the most important aspects in determining its beauty, value and durability. The cut determines how well light reflects off of the surface of the diamond, causing it to sparkle and shine. A diamond's cut also affects how much fire and scintillation (the flashes of light) it displays when viewed from different angles. The term "cut" actually refers to two things: shape and polish. The shape refers to how well proportioned a diamond is compared to other diamonds; for example, rounder diamonds tend to catch more light than rectangular stone shapes do because they reflect more light at different angles.
The polish refers to how smooth and reflective each facet on your stone looks; poorly polished facets can cause dark mirror-like areas in your stone instead of sparkling reflections that make you feel like you're looking into an abyss full of stars as opposed to just regular darkness
What does the color of a diamond mean?
Color is one of the key factors that determines the value of a diamond. Diamonds come in a wide range of colors, but as you might expect, colorless diamonds are more valuable than colored ones. However, there are some exceptions to this rule: yellow diamonds are more rare and therefore more expensive than white diamonds with slight yellowish tints.
The color of a diamond is dependent on its chemical composition and how those elements interact with other substances during formation (the process where carbon atoms join together under intense heat and pressure). The presence or absence of these elements causes variations in color from stone to stone.
Getting an engagement ring is not just about picking the most expensive one.
A diamond is not just a diamond anymore. It's more than just a symbol of love; it is a symbol of your love. An engagement ring isn't just any piece of jewelry; it is an expression of the person who gave it to you and the person who receives it.
The average bride-to-be spends about $2,600 on an engagement ring, which might seem like a lot but there are plenty of ways to find gorgeous diamonds at prices that won't break the bank. And when you consider that the average cost per year spent on rent in New York City ($3,376) or San Francisco ($3,422), according to Zillow Research, paying for an expensive rock may be easier than one might think!
You don't have to spend thousands of dollars on an engagement ring if you don't want to—but even if money weren't an issue (or only slightly less so), choosing the right stone matters too much for price alone being what matters most!
When you are picking out an engagement ring, it’s not just about how much money you spend on it. It’s also about finding the right ring that fits your partner and her personality. The most important thing is to make sure she likes it!
