Diamonds are associated with the finest things in life, and a diamond engagement ring is possibly the most significant diamond purchase that you will make during your lifetime. Browsing jewelry stores and catalogs can be overwhelming, with each one guaranteeing that they offer the best quality selection. So how can you be sure that you are getting a great diamond in that designer ring?

Finding the perfect beautiful ring for the woman that you love can be a difficult job if you don’t know what you are looking for. When you propose you want her to know that only the finest, superior quality diamond ring is good enough for her, and you should also take care to find a designer ring that suits her style and taste to make the ring more personal. When it comes to diamonds size matters, but is only a part of what you should look for in an engagement ring. The physical size, or weight, of a diamond. is measured in carats, but just because a diamond is large doesn’t mean that it is high quality or even attractive. In fact, many of the largest stones that you see on display in jewelry counters may not even be real, or natural diamonds. To truly appreciate a diamond you need to take into consideration the other 3 cs of diamonds, namely cut, clarity and color.

The finest diamond designer rings will display exquisite cuts, a high level of clarity, and a pure color. However, if you are looking for a cheap engagement ring you can opt to choose a higher grade of one element over another to keep the price of your designer ring within your budget. For example, if you are happy with a diamond that has flaws ‘only visible under close inspection’ then you will be able to afford a larger carat. .A diamond with a cut that is not quite perfect might be technically less valuable but could create an unusual fire and sparkle to enhance the clarity of the gem.

Each piece of diamond jewelry that you purchase should come with a certificate to show you exactly what the rating is for each ‘c’.The beauty of buying a diamond designer ring online is that a good site will often display that useful information right alongside each beautiful ring. Some may even let you search by settings for your engagement ring, by diamond type or by price range letting you find a precious engagement ring within your budget.

Modern designer rings now also offer choices in other gemstones for engagement rings in tantalizing color combinations such as diamond and tanzanite rings or pink sapphire and diamond rings. Settings for engagement rings can also vary, ranging from modern designer styles to classic and traditional settings.

The important this is to choose a diamond ring not based on size or price alone but to choose a designer ring that you feel she will love and treasure forever because that is was an engagement ring symbolizes.
