How To Buy An Engagement Ring

After considering the four Cs – the colour, cut, clarity and carat – of the stone you choose, there are still several things to think about when choosing your engagement ring. Are you a solitaire or a cluster kind of girl? Will a prong setting that catches on your clothes annoy you, or is the smooth bezel setting too modern for you? What stone shape feels right and how big or small do you want to go?

A diamond’s colour is graded on a scale from D (colourless) to Z (light yellow), with D being the most sought-after.

The exception to this rule is for diamonds that possess a very rare or unusual colour – like green or red. More common coloured diamond options include blue, yellow and pink.

The cut of a diamond doesn’t actually refer to its shape, but to the way that the stone is cut in order to increase its sparkle, whether deep in shape or more shallow. A well-cut diamond should have a bright shine and should reflect light easily internally

 

What Is Clarity?
Clarity refers to how many inclusions, or tiny imperfections, a stone contains. Only visible under a magnifying glass, these small specks feature in almost every diamond and are formed when the diamond is crystallised under the earth’s crust.

The carat is the weight of your chosen stone or stones and is one way to measure the value of the ring you choose. Generally the higher the carat of a single stone, the more it will cost and the bigger it will look, although a diamond with a shallower cut can appear larger than a deeper-cut stone that may actually weigh more
Several larger stones, or one large central stone and two smaller side stones, placed side by side in a simple setting. Often two stone types are mixed, such as an emerald with two diamonds, or two sapphires with a central diamond
