Eternal Love: the 8 Carat Diamond

The appeal of an 8 carat diamond is boundless; not only does its size add to a spectacular shine that brightens every space you enter, but the number 8 itself carries weight since it represents infinity. The 8 carat diamond ring is precisely proportioned in respect to the hand, evoking the number 8's meaning of balance and harmony. The number 8's body is made up of two complete circles, which signify fullness and completion, while the number 8 on its side signifies eternal, which is far beyond what we can perceive. All of these features combine to create the 8 carat diamond ring the ideal engagement ring, a sign of your undying love for one another. The 4Cs (Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat) are probably recognizable to you. It's worth noting that these 4Cs will emerge differently depending on the diamond shape you pick. I'll go through what to look for in an 8 carat diamond.

Oval Cuts

Oval cuts are a popular and timeless option, and the extended design looks well on all women's hands. The oval 8 carat diamonds have a greater spread and brilliance than other diamond shapes. When looking for an oval 8 carat diamond, take in mind that bigger stones might have more faults or inclusions, which are characteristics of a diamond with a lower Clarity. Because of the oval diamond's faceting structure, you may cut corners with clarity, but certain facets and inclusions show up more than others. We recommend remaining in the VS1/VS2/SI1 range at Diamond Registry. When it comes to 8 carat oval diamonds, color is the most significant consideration. The more noticeable the color, the bigger the stone, and oval cutting display more color than round or Emerald shapes. For 8 carat oval cuts, we exclusively use colorless range (D, E, F) and top tier near-colorless range (G, H), so nothing comes in the way of that exquisite brightness and glitter.

Radiant Cuts

Radiants are the Max Sparkle stone, and they have 70 facets, which is 12 more than her other sister forms. The radiant cut rectangular form, which has a 1:15 - 1:2 ratio, mesmerizes ladies all over the globe with its scintillation and disco ball dazzle of light refraction and fire. Radiant cuts, like princess cuts, feature a long, open table that allows for better vision into the diamond's core. Radiant cuts display and amplify color better than most other cuts (most yellow diamonds are radiant cuts), therefore staying in the colorless (D,E,F) to top tier near colorless (G,H) range is ideal. Due to the abundance of facet structure in this huge table stone, you may get away with somewhat lesser clarity, ranging from VS1 to SI1. Most inclusions are hidden by the radiant cut diamond's 70 facets (though you need to have the right inclusions). Although we have seen most radiant cut diamond rings of this size as a Three Stone Diamond Ring, they perform nicely as a solitaire and as a three stone ring. Trapezoids, bullets, tapered baguettes, and cadillacs are excellent side stones for this angular stone.

Emerald Cuts

Nothing beats the emerald cut for classic style and elegance, conjuring up images of Old Hollywood grandeur and roaring New York City. The emerald cut is regarded as 'The Honest Cut' in the diamond business because it does not disguise any imperfections. Any inclusion will be amplified inside an emerald cut, which is similar to a hall of mirrors. A better clarity will be worth the investment if you're aiming for a classic and lasting emerald cut. Diamond Registry exclusively buys diamonds that are VS1/2 or VVS1/2 in clarity. Emerald cut diamonds hide color better than her sisters, the pear, oval, and cushion cuts, thus a low color will seem higher with this cut (an H will look like a G, and an F will look like an E, etc.) We've perfected the 'up a color' bespoke diamond settings at Diamond Registry, which push a diamond to its utmost potential and make the color look even brighter.

Round Brilliant Cuts

The round brilliant cut is a sign of perfection, and the roundness is perfectly balanced at 8 carats while still making a dramatic statement. The only cut that may reach a Triple Excellent Cut Grade rating is the round brilliant cut, which signifies that the light refraction, brightness, and scintillation of round brilliant cuts are the best in the industry, and can light up any room. Due to their spectral/rainbow light refraction, round brilliant diamonds are excellent for masking color. Brilliant diamonds refract rainbow fire hues, whereas ovals and cushion cuts refract white light. You could get away with a H or I color with this shape, but for an 8 carat diamond, F or G is the finest color range. Because of the brilliant faceting, you may be more indulgent with clarity for an 8 carat round brilliant, and imperfections are well buried and typically difficult to spot. The VS1/VS2 range is suitable.

Cushion Cuts

Although both elongated and square cushion shapes are ageless, they only became fashionable about 2019 and have remained so since. Regardless of what the certificate states, no two cushion cuts are same, and they are all unique. It's crucial to think about ratio, weight distribution, and color when buying an 8 carat cushion diamond. The first thing you should do is determine if your potential companion favors square or elongated cushions. Because of the weight distribution, an 8 carat elongated cushion seems bigger than a square cushion. Cushions, on the other hand, might be bottom-heavy, meaning that the majority of the diamond weight is in the bottom of the stone rather than the top, making it look less than 8 carats. It's also vital to think about the cushion's ratio, which can be found by dividing the length by the breadth. A perfect square is 1:1, a slightly expanded cushion is 1:15, and a real rectangle with a broad spread is 1:2. Keep finger covering in mind, particularly if your partner's fingers are spread out. If this is the case, pick a diamond that spreads out further over her finger, or consider adding side stones to the ring to provide coverage throughout her finger's breadth. When it comes to color, a cushion cut diamond ring will display it, particularly when the diamond is this large. We recommend choosing a hue that is somewhere between an F, G, and H. You can get away with an I color if your setting is yellow gold.

Pear And Marquise Cuts

Pear and Marquise cuts are attractive, but they must be found by a professional since only one magnificent pear or marquise form exists in every 100. This is due to the proportions of the form being subjective. We think about it like the Goldilocks syndrome at Diamond Registry, and make sure the cut isn't too broad, too narrow, or too sharp, and that the bow tie isn't too firm. Pear and Marquise cuts are adept at masking inclusions, so choosing a lesser clarity is a smart way to save money. With color, we recommend keeping to a F or a G, since H or lower hues will show through with this cut. If you're buying an H, I, or J, our 'increase a color' options will be ideal for boosting the color intensity.
