If you are planning to propose to your beloved lady with a diamond engagement ring, I can promise you that the girl will in no way say no to your proposal and will even feel she is the happiest woman in the world. Now that the ring is endowed with so important meaning, you have to make sure that the ring is perfect in every aspect. With a large number of different diamond rings in various shapes, styles and designs in the market and also regarding your limited budget, you should follow some useful tips to ensure the ring worth your money.
How to judge diamond cost versus quality: the cost of your 對戒 will be determined by what is commonly called The Four C’s: Color, Clarity, Cut and Carat weight as measured on the GIA rating scale. While there is much to be read on these characteristics, the following is a very brief guideline that will result in a beautiful diamond at the lowest cost.
In terms of chain width and style, the better choices are a 1 to 1.75mm twisted rope, or a 1 to 1.5mm box link chain. Perhaps the most elegant choice is a 1 to 2mm round snake chain. These chains are well worth the difference in price since they both enhance the look of your necklace, and they will secure the diamond safely on your neck. Don’t accept a standard lightweight link chain because sooner or later it will break and you will lose your diamond price.
The 4 C’s are clarity, cut, color, and carat weight. 1 carat and under can be found for a reasonable price, but the other 3 C’s are important in determining that price. It’s not just about the weight of the diamond. If you aren’t familiar with the 4 C’s you should become knowledgeable before you delve into the actual purchase of a diamond ring.
If you’d like a ring you can wear everyday to the office, with your little black dress, or with your favorite blue jeans there are all kinds of diamond rings today that fit that bill. You can choose a diamond that’s noticeable but not glam. You can choose gold or white gold depending on your skin color, and you can choose one that fits your budget. Online diamond ring shopping makes it easy to get more for your money.
Carat: Carat is the weight of diamond. And generally you must select the carat of diamond according to your budget. Remember the larger the diamond the more expensive it will be and the rarer it is.
Regardless of your choice in diamond engagement rings you will likely have an easier time of picking just the right one for your someone special by understanding the process and the basics of diamonds. This will allow you to understand what you need to have accomplished in order to achieve the perfect diamond for your budget.
