How to Choose a Diamond Engagement Ring
Buying a diamond engagement ring is one of the most exciting decisions a couple will make. Choosing the size and shape along with the style of the mounting of the diamond is a personal choice. Understanding the characteristics that influence the brilliance and value of a diamond engagement ring can make your buying experience of your ring more fulfilling.
Diamonds are like people—no two are exactly alike. Before buying a diamond engagement ring, learn about the 4 Cs—cut, color, clarity and carat weight of diamonds. Understanding the language of diamonds will put you more at ease in selecting your ring. Make sure to obtain a diamond certificate from a reputable independent gemological laboratory. The certificate identifies and evaluates specific characteristics that determine the value of the diamond you select for your engagement ring.
THE 4 Cs of Buying a Diamond Engagement Ring
CUT of your Diamond - Cut actually means two things: the shape of the diamond (round, marquise, pear, oval, heart, emerald, princess, etc.) and the proportions of the diamond. When a diamond is cut to good proportions, light is reflected from facet to facet, then dispersed through the top. The better the cut, the greater the sparkle, brilliance and fire of the diamond for your engagement ring.
COLOR of your Diamond Engagement Ring
Most diamonds in a engagement ring look colorless. But there are subtle shade differences that range from colorless to yellow/brown. Diamonds are graded on a color scale that ranges from D (colorless) to Z (yellow/brown). Diamonds with no hint of color at all are extremely rare and are therefore, most valuable. Most gem quality diamonds used in a engagement ring appear to be colorless, but they usually have a hint of color.
CLARITY of your Diamond Engagement Ring
Almost all diamonds in a diamond engagement ring contain a combination of internal and external characteristics called inclusions and blemishes. Normally, they are barely visible without powerful magnification. Some are even so small they require great skill and time to locate. The number, type, location, visibility and color of inclusions determine a diamond’s clarity and may influence its value in your engagement ring.
CARAT WEIGHT of your Diamond Engagement Ring
Like all precious stones, the weight or size of your diamond in your diamond engagement ring is measured in carats. A one carat diamond is equal in weight to one hundred smaller units called “points.” Therefore, a fifty-point diamond, for example, is the same as a half carat. Carat weight of your diamond engagement ring is the most obvious factor in determining a diamond’s value, depending on the quality of its cut, clarity and color of your engagement ring.

Did you Know?
The origin of the diamond engagement ring: In Ancient Greece, it was a commonly held belief that diamonds originated as the tears of the Gods. Cupid (Eros), then used these to tip his arrows, as it would further enhance the love and desire of his victims for one another. This is how couples first came to exchange a diamond engagement ring; in hopes that the diamond engagement ring would heighten the love between them.
Archduke Maximillian of Austria set the standard for royalty when in 1477 he presented a diamond engagement ring to his betrothed Mary of Burgundy. The diamond engagement ring continued to be a tradition for almost exclusively the royal and wealthy until the discovery of the African mines almost three centuries later.
Today, it is not only this tradition which makes a diamond engagement ring the symbol of a promise. The diamond in a diamond engagement ring is one of the strongest, most durable natural materials known to man and is one of the most spectacular. Diamonds are practically indestructible and are the perfect metaphor for immortalizing your love with a diamond engagement ring.
