Choosing the Best Diamond Engagement Ring
Now you've finally decided to propose to the love of your life. Congratulations! Nothing is more endearing than giving her the perfect diamond engagement ring every woman dream of. So before heading to the jewelry store, allow us to address some of your concerns regarding selecting the best diamond engagement ring for your future wife. Diamond is a woman's best friend and to ensure that she'll be wowed with your engagement ring, you need to consider the carat, cut, clarity and color of the stone. Carat refers to the size and weight, the cut is the style and shape, clarity is the brilliance and flawlessness and color is the hue and fluorescence. With these factors, which is the most important? Technically, the carat really does makes the difference, then the clarity, cut and the color. But of course, we need to be realistic about this matter because not all men can afford a full carat gold with maximum brilliance, colorless and flawless diamond stone.
Your basis of selecting the perfect wedding rings is your fiancee. You have to know her style, her ring size, and her preferences. If you want to surprise her then you have to gather all these information without her knowing it, so you have to be sneaky. When she's in the bathroom, you may sneak on her jewelry box for a ring she's not always wearing to know her ring size without her noticing it. You can also recruit one of her closest girlfriends and ask to get it for you or to ask questions about her preference. You may also bring her to a jewelry shop and pretend you want to check some men's watches, then observe her checking some ladies jewelry if she prefers yellow gold, white gold or platinum that you can use for the ring band. If you want an element of surprise, you can shift out of her style and decide for yourself basing on how you perceive her.
Diamond engagement rings come in different shapes and cuts, and the most popular are the round (classic), princess cut (feminine) and the cushion cut(makes a statement). Clarity reflects the flawlessness or no visible marks on the diamond, with cut giving more brilliance and life to the diamond. Carat matters the most because this is the weight and the size, and most often, budget-friendly diamonds go for a larger stone than the quality because women love bigger diamonds more than anything else. They want to to be visible to others' eyes, their friends, relatives as well as to the general public. Every woman will be so proud to wear a diamond ring.
The diamond engagement ring's setting is very important as well because even though you have chosen a smaller stone, you can create an optical illusion by working on the setting. The color is not really a basis of beauty but it actually reflects how rare is the diamond.
