Things To Know To Evaluate The Diamond Quality
Carat weight, Color, Cut, Clarity are four categories of diamond that determine the value of the actual stone. Carat weight refers to the number of points a diamond has, the larger number of points the larger the cost. Color refers to the amount of pigment in the gem; the more “clear” or pigment free a stone is the higher the value. Cut which differs from shape means the quality in which it was done, mainly proportion. Clarity refers to the number of imperfections in the stone; the imperfections affect the ability of light to shine through the stone. These choices can also be made according to preference but normally they are based on price. They will be more effective in the value of your diamond ring.
Choosing The Setting
The setting could be made out of many metals including platinum, rose gold, yellow, gold, silver or titanium. Along with the diamond make sure you have done research on the band, also taking into account the color that will reflect the stone best. This should also be a preference choice of both partners because just as marriage should be both people should be able to state their preferences.
