Are you preparing to buy an engagement ring soon and are wondering what there is you need to know? Look no further. This video will break down a couple of tricks for buying your engagement ring.
Let’s start with something many people don’t know: settings and center stones are often sold separately. So when you shop for an engagement ring, you’re often shopping for two things, your center stone (usually a white diamond) and your setting (the metal framework that holds your center stone).
The 4Cs are quality gradings given to a diamond. Here’s a brief overview of the 4Cs. The cut is the grading of how well a diamond is cut, which affects how it captures light. The color is a measurement of how colorless a white diamond is. Clarity is a grading of how flawless a diamond is, both internally and externally. And the carat is the weight measurement that can give you an idea of how large a diamond is. Lastly, engagement rings can take some time to order. Unless you’re buying a preset engagement ring, your jeweler will need some time to place your desired diamond in your engagement ring’s setting.
