Even thought we are in the business of buying diamonds, not selling them; we get the following question from time to time: “How Can I Find The Perfect Engagement Ring?”. So we through we would offer our most thoughtful and considered answer.

When choosing a diamond, there are several things to keep in mind. The most obvious aspect to consider is price. The average cost of an engagement ring is about $4,000. Of course, this is a hefty expenditure for the average American making a median-level income. To be able to afford an engagement ring will require some planning ahead and months of saving. However, if price is an issue, and you’re not concerned with having a real diamond stone, then you can always purchase a cubic zirconia stone (virtually identical to diamond) for a fraction of the price of a diamond.

In order to find a diamond that looks the way you want it to, you’ll need to take into account the four C’s. These C’s include cut, color, clarity, and carat. The cut of a diamond defines what the style of the stone will be, and the basic shape of it. The color of the diamond signifies how chemically perfect and pure the diamond is. A perfect diamond would have absolutely no tinge of color to it and would be clear. The clarity ranks how clear and transparent a diamond is. The cloudier a diamond is, the less clarity it holds. And finally, what determines the size of the diamond is the carat size. You’ll need to consider all of these elements to diamond buying if you are looking for the perfect diamond.

Last but not least, the setting of your diamond is also an important part of the overall look of your engagement ring. There is not one “best” type of setting for an engagement ring because this choice is more about style and personal preference. For your ring’s setting, you might choose to have a plethora of side stones or just one main stone. There are bands that range from modern to vintage, and that include everything in between. You might choose to have your diamond set in gold or in platinum. There are a variety of options for you and your engagement ring, but in the end the best advice to follow is your own. Only you can decide what makes you the happiest.
