Get a Diamond Engagement Ring That Will Last Forever

Diamond engagement rings are meant to be worn forever. However, when shopping for one, this may not feel like the case. Before you make a diamond purchase, you need to find a reputable diamond dealer that will help you find the best deals on loose diamonds and diamond rings. Many people shop with companies that over-inflate their prices and sell fake diamonds. That can get annoying after a while, right? Use this blog to learn all about diamonds and where to buy them!

Choose A Diamond That Fits Your Budget

The "4Cs" of diamonds — cut, color, clarity, carat weight — all intersect with price. The more perfect a stone is in those areas, the higher its value. If you have any flexibility in what you can spend on an engagement ring, it's worth taking some time to learn how each element influences the appearance and value of a diamond.

You also need to remember that the price tag doesn't always tell you everything about a diamond's quality. For example, two diamonds might be similar in size and cut but come from different sources — one might have been mined and another created in a lab. The natural stone will probably be more expensive even though they are considered equally valuable by the jewelry industry.

Get To Know The 4Cs And Understand How To Judge Them

Shopping for a diamond engagement ring is a lot like shopping for a car. You have to know what you're looking for and ask the right questions of the jeweler. The most important thing to understand about diamonds is that no two are alike, which means that every diamond has its own unique characteristics. These differences are measured by the "4 Cs":

Cut: The cut of a diamond is what gives it sparkle and brilliance. A diamond's reflective qualities can be affected by how it was cut, polished and shaped

Color: Diamonds that appear colorless or white are more highly valued than those that are yellow or brownish in color. When grading the color of a diamond, jewelers look at factors such as how deep or light the stone is, how much color it reflects and how evenly it distributes light throughout the stone

Clarity: Clarity refers to any imperfections in the stone. Most diamonds contain tiny blemishes or inclusions, which can be seen only with magnification. The fewer imperfections a diamond contains, the higher its clarity grade will be

Carat weight - Diamonds are weighed in carats. A metric "carat" is defined as 200 milligrams. Each carat can be subdivided into 100 'points.' This allows very precise measurements to the hundredth decimal place. For instance, a diamond that weighs 1.87 carats is described as 'one point eight seven carats.'

Find A Good Jeweler That Has What You Need

There are tons of different jewelers to choose from, but not all of them will give you the same product. Some sell fake diamonds and others have very poor quality diamonds. The best way to get a good deal on a diamond is to find a reputable jeweler that can meet your needs and budget.

Narrow Down Your Choice With Certification

Certification means a third party has evaluated your stone and provided an assessment of its quality. Certification documents also include information like carat weight, measurements and other key characteristics of your diamond.

Buying an engagement ring can be a daunting proposition: it's expensive, and you want to get it right. But if you take your time and do some research, you'll find that finding the right ring doesn't have to be difficult at all.
