Infinite Love: the 8 Carat Diamond

diamond rings

Allure is infinite for an 8 carat diamond, not only because the size lends a brilliant sparkle to every room you enter, but because the number 8 itself holds power because it symbolizes infinity. The 8 carat diamond ring is perfectly balanced on the hand, embodying the number 8's meaning of harmony and balance. Wholeness and completion are represented by the number 8's two complete circles, and infinity is represented by the number 8 turned on its side. The 8 carat diamond ring is the perfect engagement ring because of all of these features. It is a symbol of your infinite and complete love for one another.

Cut, color, clarity, and carat weight are all terms you've probably heard of before. You should keep in mind that the 4 C's will appear differently depending on the shape of your diamond. Let me walk you through the process of finding the ideal 8 carat diamond.

Oval Cuts

The elongated shape of ovals is flattering on all women's hands, making them a popular choice. Compared to other diamond shapes, the 8 carat oval diamonds have a larger spread and sparkle.

You should be aware that larger diamonds may have more inclusions or flaws, which are signs of a lower Clarity diamond. Due to the oval diamond's faceting structure, you can cut corners with clarity, but some facets and inclusions are more visible than others. The VS1/VS2/SI1 range is what we recommend at Diamond Registry. Diamond Registry's most ethical and highly regarded diamond sourcers supply all of our diamonds.

With 8 carat oval diamonds, color is the most important consideration. Having a larger stone means more color is visible, and oval-cut stones show more color than round or Emerald-cut stones. Oval cut 8 carat diamonds are only sourced from colorless (D, E and F) and near-colorless diamonds (G and H) to ensure the perfect shine and sparkle.

Radiant Cuts

The elongated shape of ovals is flattering on all women's hands, making them a popular choice. Compared to other diamond shapes, the 8 carat oval diamonds have a larger spread and sparkle.

You should be aware that larger diamonds may have more inclusions or flaws, which are signs of a lower Clarity diamond. Due to the oval diamond's faceting structure, you can cut corners with clarity, but some facets and inclusions are more visible than others. The VS1/VS2/SI1 range is what we recommend at Diamond Registry. Diamond Registry's most ethical and highly regarded diamond sourcers supply all of our diamonds.

With 8 carat oval diamonds, color is the most important consideration. Having a larger stone means more color is visible, and oval-cut stones show more color than round or Emerald-cut stones. Oval cut 8 carat diamonds are only sourced from colorless (D, E and F) and near-colorless diamonds (G and H) to ensure the perfect shine and sparkle.

Emerald Cuts

The emerald cut evokes images of glitz and glamour from the golden age of Hollywood and the bustling streets of New York City. The emerald cut is referred to as "The Honest Cut" in the diamond industry because it does not conceal any inclusions. To put it another way, any inclusion will be magnified in an emerald cut. A higher clarity is well worth the extra cost if you want an emerald cut that will last a lifetime. Only diamonds with a clarity grade of VS1/2 or VVS1/2 are used in the creation of Diamond Registry.

Because the emerald cut hides color better than the pear, oval, or cushion cuts, a diamond with a low color rating will appear more brilliant when cut in this manner (an H will look like a G, and an F will look like an E, etc.) Mastering the "up a color" custom diamond settings at Diamond Registry allows us to maximize the color of a diamond, making it appear even more vibrant.

Round Brilliant Cuts

At an 8 carat size, the round brilliant cut's roundness is perfectly balanced while still making a bold statement. The round brilliant cut symbolizes perfection. One and only round brilliant cuts can receive a Triple Excellent Cut Grade, indicating that their light refraction, brilliance, and scintillation are exceptional, and they will brighten any room in which they are placed.

Because of their spectral/rainbow light refraction, round brilliant diamonds hide color very well. Colorful sparkle can be seen in both white and rainbow refracting oval and cushion-cut stones. You can get away with a H or I color with this cut, but we recommend that an 8 carat diamond should have a F or G color range.

The brilliant faceting of an 8 carat round brilliant allows you to be more lenient with clarity because inclusions are well hidden and generally difficult to see. The ideal price point falls within the VS1/VS2 range.

Cushion Cuts

Although both the elongated and square cushion cuts are classics, they only became popular in 2019 and have remained so since. Despite what the certificate says, there are no two cushion cuts that are exactly alike.

Weight distribution, ratio, and color are all factors to consider when purchasing an 8 carat cushion diamond. A square or elongated cushion is the first thing you should find out about your future partner.

Weight distribution gives an 8 carat elongated cushion a bigger appearance than a square cushion. If the diamond is bottom-heavy, the stone will appear smaller than 8 carats, even though it is in fact 8 carats in actual weight.

The cushion's ratio, which you can calculate by dividing the length by the width, should also be taken into account. There are three ways to divide a square into equal parts: 1:1, 1:15, and 1:2. A 1:2 ratio is a true rectangle, but it spreads out quite a bit. Pay attention to how well your partner's fingers are covered, especially if theirs are wider. If this is the case, consider adding side stones to the ring or selecting a diamond that extends farther down her finger.

If you're looking for color in an engagement ring, look no further than this cushion-cut diamond ring. We recommend that you stay within the range of colors F, G, and H.. If you have a yellow gold setting, an I color is acceptable.

Pear And Marquise Cuts

There is only one perfect pear or marquise cut out of every 100, so if you want to wear one, make sure you have it cut by a professional. This is because the shape's proportions are subjective. Diamond Registry thinks of it as the Goldilocks syndrome and makes sure that the cut is not too wide, narrow, or pointed, and that there is not too much of a bow tie in the design.

Pear and Marquise cuts are excellent at hiding inclusions, so choosing a lower clarity can help you save money. Using a F or G color is recommended, as H or lower colors will be visible with this cut. Buying an H, I, or J? Use our "up a color" settings to boost the vibrancy of the colors you see.

Diamond Ring with an 8-Carat Diamond Price

The price of an 8 carat diamond varies widely depending on a variety of factors, including the diamond's color, cut, clarity, carat weight, fluorescence, certification, demand for the shape, rarity, and the stone's make and characteristics. The price of a diamond can be greatly affected by any one of these factors. For example, think of it as buying a car in which your personal preferences for the model and year as well as additional options all influence the final price. From $150,000 to $600,000, an 8-carat diamond can be purchased.

In order to find the perfect diamond for you, Diamond Registry employs an elite global sourcing process that is both cost-effective and unique to your love story. Email info@diamondregistry.com for an estimate and a boutique streamlined search for your elite diamond from around the world.
