How to Choose Loose Diamonds for Custom Engagement Rings

By Alexandra Gulkin Subscribe to RSS | May 28th 2012 | Views:

Custom engagement rings are an ever-more-popular option in the world of sentimental jewelry. Designing your own ring is actually a relatively simple task through some online retailers who cater to this particular market demand. Here are a few tips on choosing loose diamonds for this purpose.

Why “Custom” Engagement Rings?

So, you’ve finally met the perfect woman…the love of your life…the keeper of your heart. And now you’ve decided to take your relationship to the next level. But before you go forward with the proposal, you need to find that perfect, one-of-a-kind ring that will dazzle her just the way she’s dazzled you since the day you met. Naturally, there are hundreds…even thousands…of engagement ring designs out there from which to choose. But you want a ring that’s going to stand out from the crowd; a ring that says, “You’re one in a million.” Custom engagement rings do just that, effectively representing the “one-of-a-kind” love you share. Designing your own ring is easier than you might think, and it all starts with your selection of loose diamonds.

How to Select Loose Diamonds

Your selection of loose diamonds is first and foremost a matter of personal preference; hers more-so than yours, but both opinions are important. Loose diamonds come in several different shapes and every size imaginable. Shape will be determined by your preference, while size might be more influenced by your budget. Aside from these two factors of cut and carat weight, you’ll also want to have a rudimentary knowledge of a diamonds attributes of color and clarity, as these aspects can also affect an engagement ring’s overall “wow” factor, as well as having a significant impact on the cost of loose diamonds. You’ll also want to make sure that the inventory you are browsing is comprised only of certified loose diamonds. This ensures two things: 1) the diamond’s value and 2) the diamond’s source (certified diamonds are sourced from conflict free zones. In other words, certified loose diamonds are never “blood” diamonds.)

Putting it all Together

Choosing the perfect solitaire from a collection of loose diamonds is just the first step toward designing your own, one-of-a-kind, completely custom engagement ring. From this point, you can choose from your choice of precious metals (yellow gold, white gold and platinum are most common), ring settings and diamond accents. When it’s all put together, you’ll have an engagement ring that she’ll be ecstatic to say “yes!” to, as well as a symbol of your love that she’ll be proud to wear every day…for a lifetime.

Loose diamonds, when utilized in the process of designing your own, custom engagement ring, make it easier than ever to express your “one in a million” love to that “one in a million” lady.
