Find The Perfect Diamond

It is amazing how a stone of such a simple structure has become the most popular symbol of everlasting love and long-life commitment. A diamond engagement ring is meant to bring happy memories for years to come, and destined to become a family heirloom.

Choosing a diamond engagement ring is a truly unique experience. To make the most out of it, and to choose a ring she will say “yes” to, you need to remember that everything – from diamond size, shape and quality to overall design, should be a reflection of your love and commitment, as well as a reflection of her personality.

Is diamond size important? Diamond size is measured in carats, and is one of the key factors (along with color, clarity and cut) in determining the value of a diamond. Furthermore, most men perceive the size of the stone as the most important quality of a diamond engagement ring and would often purchase the largest diamond they can afford.

However, when it comes to choosing the best diamond engagement ring size, the size of the diamond is actually not the first and foremost thing to consider. A diamond’s cut, clarity and color are as important as a diamond’s size.

  • Diamond’s clarity grade determines the degree of purity of the stone. The clearer the diamond of naturally occurring inclusions, the highest its value and overall beauty.
  • Diamond’s color grade determines how close its color is to the perfect, colorless state of the crystal. Typically, it is easier to find a smaller stone of superb color than a larger one.
  • Diamond’s cut determines the overall beauty, as well as its brilliance
  • The ability of the stone to reflect light and disperse color. Regardless of size, diamonds of higher clarity and color, along with a good cut have better brilliance.

Ultimately, determining the best diamond engagement ring size is determining best combination of all of the above characteristics.
