Diamonds are Forever

  • Diamonds are Forever
You’re ready to make a commitment to that special someone, and seal the deal with a diamond engagement ring. The process can seem daunting, but the best thing is to set a budget, do some research, shop around and talk to the experts. 
The four C’s of diamond selection are:
Carat – unit of measurement to weigh a diamond
Colour – refers to the colour presence or absence in white diamonds – in this case, less colour is better as the diamond emits more sparkle and fire
Clarity – refers to the presence of identifying characteristics, such as inclusions and/or blemishes, within or on the stone
Cut – don’t confuse with shape (round, emerald or pear), the cut is reference to a diamond’s reflective qualities and is considered the most important of the four C’s
Learn about ring settings (band, accent stones and prongs), choose the metal (gold, white gold, platinum) and lastly, you can opt to design the ring. Good luck!
