When a person has decided to take their relationship to the highest level and get engaged, the ring they offer will be important. Choosing the right one can be a very rewarding and challenging experience. There are a number of things a person should take into consideration. I spoke with Mitchel & Co who showed us how to shop for the best engagement ring, here some of Mitchel’s &Co’s unique engagement rings to see just what you can buy.
Jewellery Design Preferences
Mitchel & Co pointed out that there are a number of different types of engagement ring styles available. And as a tip one of the best ways to begin a search for the right engagement ring is to look through a person’s jewellery box. It’s also important to notice the jewellery they wear. Do they enjoy rose gold or prefer silver? Is there a lot of platinum jewellery in the jewellery box? Notice if the jewellery with a simple design is preferred over those with a complicated setting. Once preference is established, it’s time to move onto the four C’s of shopping for a diamond. They are carat, clarity, colour and cut.
The carat of a diamond is determined by its weight. The more carats a diamond has, the larger its size. In many cases, the size is not what makes a diamond special. Someone with a small slender hand may not want a large carat diamond. There may be other aspects of a owning diamond that are more important to them.
When a diamond is evaluated, part of the value is determined by its sheen and lustre. This is how the stone’s clarity is calculated. A large diamond can be cloudy and not very appealing to the naked eye. A smaller stone may have shine and be extremely clear. When a diamond is being created, they have something called inclusions. This impacts their clarity. The fewer the flaws detectable with the naked eye, the more expensive the diamond.
Many people value the refraction of light that occurs with a white diamond. The more colour a diamond has, the less refraction it will produce. The colour grades for diamonds range from clear to a yellow tint and more. The colour may also be influenced by the grade of clarity a diamond possesses. Fancy coloured diamonds such as pink are very expensive.
The cut of a diamond is very important to many people. It will determine the level of light that can enter the stone. This light will refract and display a brilliant quality that people love to see when they look at a diamond.
There are people who spend a lot of money on purchasing a diamond engagement ring. There are also individuals who will take advantage of such people. A reputable jeweller will be able to provide a certificate of authenticity. This certificate should be from AnchorCert an independent Diamond certification company from Birmingham.
