If you are thinking about buying a diamond engagement ring for the love of your life, there are three important components you need to consider: the diamond, the design, and the metal.
HOW TO CHOOSE A DIAMOND
Before setting foot in a diamond jewellery shop, it is important to learn about the four Cs of a diamond – cut, clarity, colour, and carat. Make sure that the diamond you will be buying is GIA (Gemological Institute of America) to ensure that it has been properly and carefully checked and graded by an expert gemmologist.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE METAL
Metal is an important factor to put into consideration is the quality of metal to be used for your engagement ring. Typically, gold and platinum are the two of the most common metals used in the creation of the ring. Gold is available in yellow, white, and rose and can be either 18k, 14k, or 9k. If your woman has sensitive skin, the perfect metal choice for her is platinum since it has hypoallergenic properties.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE DESIGN
Although there can be a lot of engagement ring design options you can choose in the market, there are times when you just can’t find something that perfectly suits your partner’s taste in style. That is why some choose to go with customised diamond engagement rings. Here are some addition tips on how the ring should be:
- It should be practical and easy to wear
- It should be durable to withstand everyday wear
- The setting should securely hold the gemstone in place.
- It should look great on her
