Understanding The Four C’s Of Engagement Diamonds

The love of diamonds in our jewelry is a modern phenomenon. It has really only been since the 1930s that diamonds have been so desired as a jewelry stone. And with diamonds came synthetic diamonds. Synthetic daimonds will always be worth considering as an alternative to diamonds whilst real diamonds are so expensive, and synthetic diamonds are so good.

The first thing to consider when selecting a diamond ring is the actual shape of the diamond. In terms of commercially sold rings, there are ten spate shapes that 鑽石gia are available in. All of which are named after the shape they take, with one exception. The ten most popular shapes of diamonds are Round, Princess, Emerald, Asscher, Marquise, Radiant, Oval, Pear, Heart, and Cushion. Most of these shapes are self-explanatory. However, the Princess-shaped diamond is essentially a large and rigid square shape. When it comes to selecting a diamond shape it all comes down to personal preference. In order to pick the best shape suited to your spouse-to-be, you will have to subtly go about finding their preferred preference.

Diamonds are the preferred investment vehicle of most big time investors because they are easier to buy and sell than most of the other commodities. They are bought and sold at relatively fixed margins. The certification that you get when you purchase diamonds, loose or rare, will ensure that you get the perfect price.

Color Stones are judged by how clear and colorless they are. This is true for all diamonds except for rare and exotic diamonds which are known as fancy diamonds, like yellow, pink or blue ones. Those are judged on a totally different scale. For a typical white diamond, the scale runs from the letter D all the way to the letter Z. D rated diamonds would be the more expensive ones as they are truly colorless, while a Z graded diamond would be considered a light color diamond.

We all know diamonds are a hard stone, but the word diamond literally does translate into the word ‘indestructible.’ The word comes from the Greek term, ‘adamas.’ For those who know and love X Men, it is said that Adamas is at the heart of ‘adamantium’ the made up alloy in X-Men Wolverine’s body.

Diamonds cut before 1950 are shaped differently from most diamonds cut since then It wasn’t until the 1950’s that the ‘Antwerp Cut’ was developed. They found a shallower geometry which in turn distributed more light through the diamond and therefore more sparkle.

When it comes to your wedding, choosing the right engagement ring is a pivotal part of setting yourself on the right path of the long road that is to follow. While this article will have laid out a handy guide in the classification of diamonds, it is up to the purchaser to find the diamond that best suits their spouse, which is ultimately decided upon based on personal preference. Whoever said, “All diamonds are the same,” clearly never spent any time in a jewellery story. Every diamond is just as unique as he who purchases it. Selecting the “right” diamond can be a difficult task, but it is one that will fill your spouse with joy and happiness.
