How to choose a diamond ring for the special day

A diamond is a great gift to express love and commitment. When we speak of special days, we could mean anything- an important birthday, a milestone anniversary, etc. But the diamond is most commonly associated with an engagement. This special day deserves a special stone. And a diamond is certainly special. If you’re wondering about how to choose a diamond ring for your special day, you need to start with the basics.

The cut is the way in which the facets on the surface of the diamond are created. These facets catch the light and provide the diamond with one of its most noticeable qualities- brilliance. If you think a diamond looks like it’s got fire inside of it, the cut is what’s creating the impression. No matter the size of the stone, if a diamond is cut well, it will shine and give an impression of being a stone of good proportions. If it’s not, then the reverse happens- even a large stone looks dull and lifeless. So when you are deciding on the stone, make sure it’s cut well and glitters. If you’d like, request the shop personnel to carry the stone outside the establishment to see it in natural light.

Since a diamond engagement ring will be exclaimed upon a lot and examined closely, you might want to think long and hard about the second C- carat. The larger the carat, the larger the stone. This is easier said than done; large sized stones aren’t easily available in nature and their rarity makes them more expensive. A trick to keep prices low is to choose a stone.

The most important aspect of a diamond is the cut that’s just a shade under a round number you may have in mind. You’ll be surprised by how many zeros are taken away when a point or two is taken out of the equation.

You’ll also need to think about the clarity of the stone. Again, the highest purity stone has no flaws at all. Perfection costs a lot of money. Instead of breaking the bank in your quest for a flawless diamond, look for something that is ‘eye-clean.’ This term refers to a diamond that has negligible flaws and inclusions and therefore cannot be seen by the naked eye. This kind of clarity is visually appealing and no one really can tell the difference. Or, you might want an inclusion of two for that distinct personal touch. Your diamond will be like none else. There is a practical reason why cracks aren’t safe- they may weaken the structure of the diamond, making it more prone to breaking and cracking. You want to make sure that even if there are inclusions, they do not compromise the overall strength of the stone.
