Now, this also represents the past present and future. That’s a nice thought.

7. Cut

There are 57 to 58 facets which are tiny planes cut on the Diamonds surface and are angled and size that dictate how the light reflects and exits the diamond. It’s also known as its fire or brilliance. Make a cut too deep or too shallow and the diamond will be less brilliant.

8. Clarity

 This could be an unnecessary pitfall. They can be costly. However, look at the diamond what do you see. Do you like what you see? If so that could be the one for you. Steer away if you see any black spots within the stone. This is carbon or coal trapped within. Use a jeweler’s loupe and you will see small inclusions nature’s fingerprints. They look like small clouds or feathers but are usually invisible to the naked eye.

Inclusions can affect the Diamonds fire or brilliance. However, they are unique and shouldn’t always be seen as a fault. So why worry so much about something you can’t see as a rule of thumb. Don’t go below an SI one slight inclusions or me f which is internally flawless. This is the most expensive diamonds you can get on the market.

9. Carat


Carat is the size of your diamonds you’ve got a quarter carat anything up to a half carat. A half carats one carat and so on. Let’s say for argument’s sake to your budget is a 1500 pounds. You looking at a half carat diamond which says the valued at 1,800 pounds. So you have 300 pounds over your budget, however, there’s a little trick if you go slightly under that carat to say 48 points just two points below you actually won’t see a difference in the size of the stone.

However you’ll see a difference in the price that stone now has become from 1,800 pounds then a 1,500 pounds. So by dropping a stone a couple of points, you can save yourself an awful lot of money. The same thing when you go to the one carat stone or one-carat diamond could be in the region of say 3,000 pounds. But your budget is said two and a half thousand go down to a ninety-five point diamond and then that now becomes in your budget.

10. Cash

Many years ago De Beers started in advertising campaign saying that diamond is forever and also that you should spend at least one month’s salary on your engagement ring. They’ve even moved it up to two months salary. However what I’m going to say to you with the information I’ve given you. Just buy what you feel you can personally afford.

11. Ring size

It’s always handy to know what size finger she is. However not to worry the average woman’s finger size is actually an imminent or an end. But if you get it wrong I’m sure when you go back to the jeweler’s say look I’ve got the finger size wrong. They’ll resize it free of charge.

12. Insurance

It’s very important you take your receipts and any diamond certificates that you may have to your insurance company. And have it properly registered. After all, you want to make sure that you get the money back if you lose it.

An engagement ring is Forever To women, it represents pure beauty; to a man, money. It is a girl’s best friend and a symbol of a man’s affection. The ad is directed to women, with the assumption that the women will present the ad to the men, giving a subliminal message that the diamond is exactly what they want.

While it’s an individual choice to decide which or what type or size of engagement ring they prefer. But it’s worth it to hear the words from others, too. Maybe you’ll get more idea from them. So, try talking with friends, families, and jewelers who are willing to help you in this matter.
