How to Pick the Perfect Ring
ESTABLISH A BUDGET
There is no right or wrong amount to spend on the engagement ring. There is only what is right for you and your partner. If you don't have the cash to put down on the ring of her dreams right now, there are financing options available.
To pick the perfect stone, it's important to pay attention to cut, clarity, color and carat weight. These are called the "4 c's."
The cut of the diamond is how well it is able to transmit light. The cut of the diamond is then evaluated based on brightness, fire or scattering of light into rainbows and scintillation which refers to the amount of sparkle the diamond produces. The cut is then ranked from "Poor" to "Excellent."
GIA's diamond D-to-Z color-granding scale is the industry's most widely accepted color grading system. The scale begins with the letter D, representing colorless, and continues, with increasing presence of color, to the letter Z. Typically, the better the grade, the more expensive the stone.
Clarity refers to the presence of imperfections in the ring which are referred to as "inclusions" or "blemishes" in or on the stone. Based on these imperfections, the stone is then ranked from "Included" to "Flawless" using the GIA Diamond Clarity Scale. The closer that the diamond clarity is to "Flawless," the more valuable it is.
Carat weight is how much a diamond weighs. A metric "carat" is defined as 200 milligrams. Diamond price typically increases with carat weight, because larger diamonds are more rare and valuable.
Platinum is one of the most popular choices for an engagement ring because it's a pure white metal that won't change color or fade with time. It's also more durable than a lot of other metals, making it the most secure setting for diamonds.
Platinum is perfect for you, it is an hypoallergenic metal.
Gold a lustrous metal renowned for its ability to maintain its shape. It's also durable. These qualities are very symbolic of a relationship, and ideally representative for an engagement ring. Gold is available in a variety of different colors like white, yellow or rose.
