The first thing to think about is what diamond shape you want to look at. There are several different and distinct shapes, from oval to pear to heart to emerald to marquise and many more. Settling on a certain shape before you even start looking at diamonds is a good way to narrow down the search right from the off. It will eliminate a bunch of options that you don’t have to spend your time looking through.

Carat – An Engagement Rings Best Feature

Something to also get cemented in your mind before looking is the carat weight. It’s the minimum that you are settled on. The biggest diamonds are not always the best diamonds. However, there are a few things worth thinking about.  To sum up, if you set your sights on a 1-carat diamond, then a half-carat just won’t cut it. And if you have the budget, then don’t be afraid to go higher. Similarly, you won’t want to go under the expected carat weight. Remember, your diamond, just like your fiance, will last a lifetime.

Clarity- Fabulous Engagement Ring Tips to Find It!

Paying attention to the clarity grading is very important too.  Especially if you want your engagement diamond to have that signature sparkle. Firstly, a good way to find your level is by starting with the high quality of clarity in a diamond. Secondly, work your way down through the grades. Thirdly,  find the diamond engagement ring that is most appropriate for your price range. However, a good general rule is not to go below the VS2 grading unless you want to make some serious concessions in the quality of your diamond.

Colour is another essential factor in buying an impressive diamond for your engagement ring.  In general, you will find the best value for your money in the G-J grades of colourlessness. Additionally, it’s important to remember that any colour will always be more detectable in a larger diamond. So opt for G-H in anything over 1 carat.  And I-J in anything under 1 carat. No matter the colour you end up choosing, diamonds always look like a higher grade once set in a ring. In other words,  not just laying it against a pristine white background.
