The most important thing to remember while buying a diamond is the four Cs―color, cut, clarity, and carat. Clarity refers to the clearness or transparency of the stone. A diamond which is flawless is very rare, as some blemishes occur during the formation and polishing of the stone. Diamonds that have less inclusions are better able to reflect light making them shine more brilliantly. Diamonds come in various colors, though colorless diamonds are the most highly prized. Carat refers to the weight of the diamond, and a larger diamond is rarer and more expensive than a smaller one. The last, but the most important of the four Cs is the cut. There are many different ways a diamond can be cut; the main among them are the round cut, the princess cut, the emerald cut, the asscher cut, the marquise cut, the oval cut, the radiant cut, the pear cut, the heart cut, and the cushion cut. The emerald cut is a rectangular-shaped step cut. The step cut consists of a simple incision into the stone and although they do not have as much sparkle as other cuts, the stone presents an elegant and regal look due to its elongated surface. They are priced a bit lower than the conventional round or princess cut diamonds. The compact and trim lines of an emerald cut diamond gives a sophisticated and classy look for simple or elaborate ring settings.
Once you have these things nailed down, you will find the process will be well worth the extra work and wait involved. Remember, it is very important to carefully select the metal you choose for your engagement ring. Many people are using gold instead of platinum because they think there is a significant cost savings, but this may not be true. Gold prices have skyrocketed recently and platinum prices have come down. Unless you are using a 14k or lower gold quality, you may be surprised at how little difference there is in platinum prices when compared to gold. Be sure to ask the designer you are working with for details. Also, it is always a good idea to buy a certified stone if it is 1 carat or larger, but be prepared to spend more money to obtain this type of diamond. An alternative would be to go with a diamond certified by EGL or IGI as opposed to GIA, because the mark-up that retailers place on GIA stones can be hefty. These are just a few things you will want to decide on before any design work is done.
A princess cut engagement ring is usually liked due to its square shape that modifies brilliance and the gems natural beauty is maximized. It is specifically selected for its mixture of karat weight, color, clarity and cut. It can also be set in a multiple row to add more visual appeal.
