The very fact that you’re reading this means that the first order of business is a hearty CONGRATULATION! Next in line, however, is the search for that perfect ring. To help you in your quest, here are the top 4 things to look for in diamond engagement rings.

Everyone knows, or at least has heard about, the “four C’s” of diamonds. For the novice diamond shopper, they are cut, clarity, color and carat weight, and together they make up the primary characteristics of diamond selection. But what do the “four C’s” really mean from a consumer perspective. More accurately in this instance, what bearing do these four characteristics have in relation to the quality and overall value of cheap engagement rings?

To break them down into their most basic terms:

Cut = the shape of the diamond

Clarity = the transparency of the diamond as it applies to inclusions and blemishes, or flaws

Color = the transparency of the diamond as it applies to clearness, or the absence of color (most desirable)

Carat Weight = the size, or mass, of a loose diamond

These are the top 4 things to look for in diamond engagement rings, but it’s important to note that the best value in diamond solitaires is not always necessarily the top grade in all of these categories.

First of all, as far as clarity and color are concerned, what most people don’t realize is that loose diamonds are graded on these characteristics in the inverted position. Once a ring is placed upright in its setting, slight differences in color and clarity which were visible while the diamond was inverted (and under 10 X magnifications, by the way) are no longer perceptible, especially not to the naked eye. Just the same, why would you want to consider diamonds that were anything less than perfect? Big time savings, my friend…in some cases as much as 400%! And unless you anticipate your beloved’s disassembling her engagement ring and examining the loose diamond under a high powered microscope, chances are no one will ever be able to tell the difference.

Cut and carat weight are the next major areas of consideration in the search for the perfect diamond solitaire. Carat weight is generally pretty cut and dried, but did you know that certain cuts can make a diamond solitaire appear larger than it really is? The secret to unleashing a diamond’s brilliance is also largely dependent upon the skill of the stone cutter, and so a diamond’s appearance should be considered carefully when deciding on the best combination of value and quality in cheap engagement rings.

It’s easy to become overwhelmed in the process of shopping for diamond rings, as there are just so many beautiful styles to choose from and, of course, you want it to be perfect. But keep these 4 things in mind, and you’ll have a much easier time narrowing down the selection to the ring that’s just right for her.
