How to Choose Certified Loose Diamonds for Custom Engagement Rings

By Rayon William Subscribe to RSS | June 12th 2012 | Views:

The growing popularity of the “design your own ring” option in engagement rings is a great thing as far as creating one-of-a-kind diamond jewelry is concerned. But some folks might feel a little overwhelmed by the process, especially with regard to the selecting that all important center stone. Here are a few tips on how to choose (wisely) loose diamonds for the purpose of custom engagement rings.

The Bigger Picture

It’s easy to get dazed in the brilliance of hundreds of loose diamonds. How do you know where to begin narrowing down the massive selection? Well, there are a few different tactics which are effective for most people in this area; first and foremost being the “bigger picture.” It’s always a good idea to have a rough image of the engagement ring you desire – the ring that she won’t be able to say no to – firmly etched into your mind prior to beginning your search. This will help you eliminate much of the vast selection right away, focusing only on the diamonds that interest you most with regard to the end result, THE ring.

A Few Important Facts Diamonds

Most of us are familiar with the “four C’s” of diamonds. Unfortunately, not a lot of us know just exactly what these designations really mean. It’s natural to assume that diamonds with the highest grades in the four categories of cut, clarity, color and carat weight are going to be the best. In fact, these diamonds are the rarest, which naturally makes them the most expensive, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that diamonds of a slightly lesser “grade” are any less beautiful. You see, characteristics such as color and clarity are graded under high powered magnification, and the majority of people will simply never notice small discrepancies in color or clarity – they’re just not visible to the naked eye and, assuming the diamond is of a satisfactory cut, neither will these minor “flaws” affect the brilliance and inherent fire of most certified loose diamonds. While the difference in appearance is slight to none, however, the difference in price can be staggering.

So, keep these things in mind as you begin your search for certified loose diamonds in preparation for designing your own engagement ring. You will be given the opportunity to “search” by cut, carat weight, color and clarity. Leave these search terms a little bit open, and see what you find in your price range. In other words, you don’t need to select the optimum grade of diamond in each of these categories. Focus on cut – if rough diamonds are cut with expert precision, a lot of other “flaws” tend to go unnoticed in the course of everyday life.

From here, custom engagement rings are limited in design only by your own creativity. Once you understand how to choose loose diamonds at the highest beauty-to-value ratio based on their common characteristics, the rest will fall into place quite easily.
