Diamond rings have become associated with big milestones in our lives most iconically, engagements. However, gemstone engagement rings too have begun to attract attention of their own. Whilst diamonds offer a more classic appeal and are considerably more durable, gemstones may be cheaper and offer a less conventional option.
Gemstones are appealing as they are available in a multitude of bright colours, however it is important to note that diamonds too come in a variety of different shades as well. It is very important to research your gemstones well before deciding as many of them are great for jewellery but may not be suitable for engagements as some can scratch easily or be prone to color distortion.
When selecting a diamond, you’ll want to take into account the “4 C’s:” cut, color, clarity, and carat weight.
All four of these factors determine the quality and cost of the diamond.
Cut doesn’t refer to the shape of the diamond, but rather the angles and proportions of the stone. A well cut diamond reflects light from one facet to another and projects the light through the top of the stone. This is what gives a diamond its sparkle. Out of all the four C’s, cut is the most important. Even if you have the perfect color, clarity, and carat, if the cut isn’t right, the diamond won’t have that fiery brilliance.
Diamonds come in a variety of colors. Diamond color is graded on a scale that ranges from D (colorless) to Z (yellow). Here the closer to white the higher the value. Beyond Z you jump into the Fancy color range. The intensity of the colour ranges from faint to fancy vivid. The more intense the color the rarer and more expensive the diamond will be.
The fewer imperfections a diamond has, the clearer, and consequently, more expensive and therefore valuable it is. When the jeweller starts discussing the clarity of the diamond, he or she will probably mention the diamond’s inclusions. Inclusions are other minerals or tiny fractures in the diamond. The fewer inclusions the better.
Carat directly refers to the weight of a diamond. Due to the nature of diamonds all have exactly the same density, thus the heavier the stone, the more Carats it packs and the larger and more expensive it is.
There are a number of precious metal options available including Gold, Platinum and Silver.
When choosing your ideal metal, it is important to consider not only the color but also durability, and price. The band will be in contact with your skin so it is important to be aware if you have a sensitivity towards certain metals?
Pure Gold is 24k (Karats) but unfortunately it is too soft to use for jewellery in this pure form as the surface can scratch easily and the shape may distort.
In order to make the ring last, the gold is mixed with other metal alloys to make it stronger and more durable. Introducing these alloys in different quantities can be used to create colour variations, for example more copper can be added to create rose gold and whiter alloys for white gold. 18k gold is the purest recommend to make jewellery with, it will not scratch as easily and will keep you diamonds and gem stones secure.
Platinum Is now being used more and more for jewellery. It does not corrode, discolour, fade, or loose shape with time and is harder and stronger the any other metal used for jewellery and for that reason, usually costlier.
Silver is also popular and is cheaper than gold or platinum. It does tend to tarnish so it’s important to constantly maintain it. Sterling silver, is an even cheaper option and contains at least 92.5% Silver.
There are many styles of ring out there. Do you prefer the classic solitaire design? or do you fancy more a halo of diamonds around your main gemstone? how about the shank? tapered, smooth, set with matching side stones or maybe full eternity shank this is completely up to you and the style that makes you happy the most.
In addition to the four C’s, you’ll also want to take into consideration the main stones shape.
A ring’s “setting” refers to the way in which the diamond is placed on the ring. You can also create combinations of different settings.
