Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. And while we’ve always advocated for the e carat diamond ring, it seems that more and more women are going bigger. I mean, how could you not? A 5 carat ring with an absolutely colorless diamond is the new 3 carat ring. It’s like getting two rings in one! In fact, I know someone who got engaged to her boyfriend with a 5 carat diamond engagement ring—and they had only been dating for six months when she popped the question. That said, marriage isn't an impulse buy (even if some people think it should be). So before you ask your boyfriend or husband-to-be to spend $100k (or more) on you for your next anniversary/birthday gift...here's what you need to know about buying diamonds in general:
5 Carat Diamonds Are The New 3 Carat Rings
5 carat diamonds are rare and expensive. They’re never on sale, and you can only find them at the most exclusive jewelry stores in the world. 5 carats is the new 3 carats. 3 carat diamonds have been around for ages, but 5 carat diamonds are on another level—they’re the next level of bling.
5 carat diamonds are also more durable than their smaller counterparts because they're harder to break or chip: they don't require as much care as a 3-carat diamond ring would (which is why they're often referred to as "the new 5-carat diamond").
The Bigger The Stone, The More Colorless You Want It.
If you're considering a 5 carat diamond or higher, know that there are many factors to consider. While it sounds like common sense to say that larger diamonds are rarer and therefore more expensive, that's not always true—you should also think about where your diamond came from and what kind of cut it has.
It's important to remember that not all 5 carat diamonds are created equal. A 5 carat diamond with a VVS1 clarity grade may look exactly like another 5 carat stone with an SI2 clarity grade; however, if those two stones cost $50K apiece but one has that perfect sparkle while the other is flawed in some way (a bit of cloudiness here or there), which would you choose? It's likely that most people would go with the flawless version because they care less about how much money they spend on their ring than they do about getting one without any imperfections.
5 Carat Diamonds Are Rare And Expensive
It's no secret that 5 carat diamonds are rare and expensive, but the fact that they're becoming the new 3 carat rings is an exciting development. The 3 carat engagement ring has been a staple for years, but now it's time for something bigger and better: the 5 carat diamond engagement ring!
And if you think about it from a practical perspective, why would anyone want a 3 carat diamond ring? 3 is too small and four is just right. 5 is where it's at though—the perfect size for those who want something special without going overboard with blingy extravagance. Plus there's so much more room for personalization! You can have your favorite gemstones set into them or even have diamonds inlaid around them to give them more depth and luminescence than ever before possible with smaller stones. This makes it easier than ever before to accessorize as well because they're not covered up by other gems like they would be with smaller ones (which means everything will look great together).
It’s not easy being a 5-carat diamond ring. With so many people coveting your beauty and asking you to become their wifey, it can be stressful at times. That’s why we recommend buying other rings to keep you company while your significant other is away. We also recommend getting a decent amount of sleep every night so that when he or she comes home, they'll find you bright eyed and bushy tailed! Remember: there's no such thing as too much glitter for this type of occasion!
