A Guide to Purchasing Diamond Engagement Rings

In the purchase of diamond engagement rings, many Texan bridegrooms ask, “Does size really matter?” The answer cannot be a simple yes or no since it really is a matter of preference. According to blogger Natasha Wagner you don’t necessarily have to buy the biggest and most expensive ring, you just have to know the cut and size your fiancé prefers and get that for her.

Diamonds are said to be the hardest naturally occurring stone, and can be as old as a billion years old. Archduke Maximilian supposedly started the tradition of giving rings as an engagement present when he gifted Mary of Burgundy with a diamond ring. He placed it on the third finger of her left hand because ancient Egyptians believe that is the location of the vein that leads straight to the heart. Since then it has become a custom that is practiced in countries from all over the world including the United States. When you purchase a diamond ring, it is important to remember the 4 Cs.

In Houston many women are particular when it comes to the cut, clarity, color, and the carat of a diamond ring. While most people mistakenly equate carat with the size of the diamond, carats are actually sold based on the weight. One carat is equivalent to exactly 0.2 grams. Note that carat is also different from karat which measures the purity of gold.

Consult Houston jewelers on the overall design of your ring. The cut of a diamond affects the design so make sure these complement. If your lady love prefers a shiny ring then make sure you don’t get a ring that’s too deep or too shallow. Color, or lack of it, is important. Know that the most valuable diamond is actually white or colorless. However, there are also some rare diamonds with distinct colors like the blue diamond.

Clarity is a characteristic most people don’t consider much since they’re not very visible to the naked eye. But if your woman knows her jewelry, then better consult your jeweler. Clarity refers to the small cloud-like blurs that affect the sparkle of a diamond. The jewelers Houston ladies trust can give bridegrooms advise on clarity before they make a choice.

The diamond jewelry Houston men will get for their fiancés should satisfy the 4Cs and their personal preference in jewelry. Reputable and reliable jewelry stores in Houston have a selection of diamond rings that will suit your budget; all you have to worry is how to pop the big question, and of course, her answer.
