Now that you know which ring style you want, it’s time to select the diamond!
Engagement rings come accompanied by a certificate detailing the diamond’s properties. But do you know what to look for?
The four essential properties in a diamond are called the 4 Cs, which stand for carat, clarity, color, and cut. It’s essential to consider all four qualities when determining the value of a diamond.
The Carat represents the weight of a diamond, while the Clarity shows the degree of imperfections in a diamond. These imperfections can be crystals or irregularities in the structure of the diamond. The fewer spots and flaws, the more valuable a diamond is.
