Hi Readers! Enjoy this guest post from Pammy Rosen at My Jewelery Box about selecting the perfect wedding ring! I’ll be back in a few days… Cheers, Laura
If you plan to buydiamond wedding rings, it is important to understand the four C’s of purchasing diamonds. Cut, clarity, carat, and color. The cut of the diamond refers to the shape of the stone. While round diamonds are the traditional cut, many other options are available to achieve the perfect look.
Theclarity of the ring refers to any natural flaws the diamond may have. Choosing a lower clarity diamond doesn’t necessarily mean you are sacrificing on quality, as many of the flaws the jewelers note in a diamond are invisible to the naked eye. The higher the clarity of the diamond, the more you will pay, so if you need to save money this is a good place to start cutting your costs. Carat refers to the weight of the diamond, so the higher the number the bigger the stone. Color is the one aspect most people pay the most attention to when shopping for diamonds. Some people prefer a diamond that appears white, while others prefer one that sparkles with a rainbow of color when light reflects through it.
Regardless of what style of wedding rings you choose, make certain you are completely in love with the design before you make your purchase. Much like your spouse, your wedding rings are something you will live with for the rest of your life, so choosing the right set requires some thought.
