Diamond Truth or Fiction

diamond rings

The internet is a goldmine of knowledge when it comes to diamonds, engagement rings, and everything in between. However, how much of this information is true or accurate? Find out what's true and what's not!

At Diamond Registry, we value the opportunity to educate our customers about diamonds at each stage of the engagement ring purchasing process. Our showroom is not the only place where diamonds can be educated, and we are always happy to share what we know with potential customers and those who are just curious.

Whether a statement about diamonds is true or false will be the subject of this blog post.

If You Put Two Diamonds Of The Same Carat Weight Side-By-Side, They Appear To Be The Same Size | FICTION

If you put two diamonds of the same carat weight together, they will not appear the same size. Because of the way they are cut and how wide they measure, some diamonds are wider and others shallower in width.

Round "Brilliant" Cut Diamonds Have The Most Sparkle Of Any Diamond Shape, According To Either The Truth Or The Fiction | FACT

The term "brilliant cut" was coined for a very good reason. Comparing different diamond shapes, the round "brilliant" cut has the most glistening radiance. To maximize diamond sparkle, round diamonds are perfectly symmetrical and precisely cut.

Diamonds With Fluorescence Should Be Avoided | FICTION

Don't get your hopes up just yet! Fewer than 0.2 percent of diamonds with fluorescence were found to have an oil-like appearance in an independent study conducted by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). This is an extremely rare occurrence, and it's caused by diamonds with medium to strong fluorescence. Fluorescent diamonds have a more colorless appearance than non-fluorescent diamonds, making them a more affordable option for those looking for a diamond that isn't too pricey.

At Diamond Registry, we choose our diamonds for their desirable qualities, such as a mild blue fluorescence.

Contrary To Popular Belief, The Bands On Your Wedding Band And Your Engagement Ring Should Match | FICTION

A mismatched set of wedding bands and an engagement ring may be preferred by some brides, while a matching set may be preferred by others. There is no "right" way to match your wedding band and engagement ring.

Prong Settings In Yellow Or Rose Gold Make A Center Diamond Appear Warmer | FACT

Your center stone will appear warmer than its color grade if it is set in yellow or rose gold. White gold or platinum settings, on the other hand, will enhance the stone's cool tones.

Our two-tone setting at Diamond Registry features a yellow gold or rose gold ring with a white gold or platinum prong setting. Highlighting the center stone with a two-toned setting is an excellent choice.

Diamonds With A Lower Color Grade Are Less Costly | FICTION

Diamonds graded from D to Z are generally in this category. The price of fancy color diamonds rises as the saturation level rises above the "Z" grade. As a matter of fact, fancy intense and fancy vivid diamonds are more expensive than colorless diamonds with a D, E, or F grade..

It Is Either True Or False That A Solitaire Ring Can Have Pave Diamond Accents | FACT

"solitaire" engagement rings are typically defined as having a single center stone, but some jewelers have a more flexible definition of the term.

There are a few solitaire rings here at Diamond Registry that have the most minute pave detailing all the way around the diamond. Furthermore, the elegant simplicity of the solitaire remains intact thanks to our Signature Wrap, Pave Prong and Hidden Halo details.

Is It True That Inclusions In Diamonds Make Them Less Desirable?

To be more precise, diamonds with noticeable inclusions are less desirable.

Depending on the color and location of the inclusion in the diamond, some inclusions are more noticeable than others in diamonds. When shopping for an engagement ring, look for eye-clean diamonds rather than diamonds with the highest clarity grade. It is possible to get a beautiful center stone at a reasonable price by purchasing a diamond with a SI1 or SI2 clarity grade.

Whether or not this is true, diamonds with inclusions are less desirable.

According to a survey, it's a mix of both.

To be more precise, diamonds with visible inclusions are less desirable.

Inclusions in diamonds come in a variety of shapes and sizes, with some more noticeable than others depending on the color and location of the inclusion. When shopping for an engagement ring, look for eye-clean diamonds rather than diamonds with the highest clarity grade.
