Tips for Choosing Your Ring
To choose a diamond ring for your important event, make sure of the diamond's clarity. The clarity measures the internal defects which is known as inclusions. Those are the imperfections when made such as dark spots or a tiny crack that has a whitish or cloudy look.
Diamond color should be free from chemical or structural imperfections as well. Most people prefer wedding rings that are transparent without off white or grayish hues.
There are certain types of diamond cuts which refer to its shape. Among them are the square, pear, or heart. The round shape is known to be the most brilliant of all diamond shapes. Yet, when referring to cut when talking about diamonds, jewelers are mesuring the protions of a diamond. Any diamond that has a too shallow or a too deep cut will have a poor brilliance.
You or a jeweler can measure your ring size. If you use a ring sizer, use it late in the day when your hands are not cold to get the most accurate size. When measuring ring size, the sizer should easily slide over the knuckle. Feel free to use our Free Ring Sizer to measure yourself or your rings.
