There are many ways to increase the ring's wow-factor without increasing the carat size when designing an engagement ring of your dreams (and subsequently, price). You may wonder how to make your engagement ring appear larger, and there are a few expert tips and tricks to keep in mind when designing your ring. It is possible to get a stunning ring for a reasonable price, but it will appear as if you went over budget.
Seven ways to make your engagement ring look bigger and more expensive are outlined below.
1. Go With An Oval-Shaped Ring
The oval cut is the best choice if you want to make your diamond appear larger while saving money at the same time. For the same price, you can increase the size of your diamond by as much as 0.20 carats with oval diamonds.
2. Consider The Spread Rather Than The Carat
Oval diamonds are not only less expensive than round diamonds, but their shape also gives the impression that they are larger. A round diamond of the same carat weight will have a smaller spread than an oval diamond.
3. Select A Narrow Band
The diamond will appear smaller if the ring band is wider. The diamond will appear larger and more impressive if the band is thinner. As a result, the engagement ring is one of our most popular designs. The brilliance and sparkle of your diamond will take center stage with a delicate band, which will also make it appear larger.
4. Prongs Made Of Platinum Are The Best Choice
Prongs made of platinum should be used even if the band is made of yellow gold, so that the diamond appears larger. We use this trick with our setting to maximize impact because the platinum color blends with the diamond rather than reflecting the gold color.
5. Having Four Prongs Instead Of Six Is Better
Fewer prongs allow you to see more of the diamond, which gives the illusion of a larger stone while also allowing more light to enter and enhance its radiance. Diamonds used to be held in place by six prongs, but the four-pronged setting is becoming increasingly popular. Not only does it have a more contemporary appearance, but it also allows the diamond to take center stage.
6. Select A Halo Lighting Option
Adding a halo can amplify the appearance of a diamond's size by increasing the diamond's diameter and enhancing its radiance with pavé.
7. Cleanse It Up!
The sparkle of a diamond has a significant impact on how impressive it appears, as well as how big it appears. Due to their dull appearance, dirty diamonds are perceived to be smaller and less brilliant. One of the simplest ways to keep your engagement ring looking beautiful and as large as possible is to clean it regularly.
