Getting the Most Carat Weight for Your Money

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

Although it is understandable to want to purchase the largest diamond you can afford, it is critical that you do not sacrifice the quality of your engagement ring for the sake of an extra 0.2 of a carat. To assist you in getting the best diamond engagement ring for your money, the following are some pointers:

Purchase a diamond with the best possible cut - as previously stated, the cut will determine how brilliant a diamond will be. Keep in mind that even the best-cut diamond will not shine to its full potential and will appear very dull if the cut is poor. The best cut means you can save money on color and clarity because you have the best cut.

In the area slightly below the magic numbers, look for a diamond. What exactly are these enchanted numbers? Each carat is worth 0.5 carats. Diamond sellers will demand significantly higher prices for diamonds of these weights. If you go just a little bit below a magic number, you might be able to purchase a diamond for as much as 25% less than what the seller is asking.

Choose a diamond with a lower clarity rating. One of the most effective ways to save money is to be clear. When looking at a diamond with the naked eye, the majority of flaws are almost impossible to detect. Diamonds with VS2 clarity. Moreover, diamonds with clarity grades of SI1, SI2, or even I1 can literally save you thousands of dollars.

Consider the type of metal you want to work with or buy. When compared to white gold or platinum, yellow gold or rose gold will be significantly less expensive. Because you can choose a diamond with a lower color saturation, you can save a significant amount of money.
