How Much is a Diamond Engagement Ring

how much is a diamond engagement ringHow much is a diamond engagement ring?

This depends on a number of factors, the quality of the diamond, the size, the type of precious metal the diamond is set in.

The quality of the diamond is probably the most important. What is the color, cut and clarity of the diamond? The better the quality of course the more expensive the diamond. When viewing diamonds and browsing a selection the diamond supplier, jeweler or dealer should have the details of the quality of each diamond. What the cut is, the color and clarity of the diamond.

Always ask to see these details. If the supplier will not show you then it is wise to seek another supplier who will. Buying a diamond is not a case of taking the first offered. You need to know that it is a quality diamond to the limit you can afford or want to spend

On that subject, many people wonder what the right amount to spend on an engagement ring is. It is generally considered that two months salary could be used as a guideline for an engagement ring and this will indicate the size, as well as the other qualities of the diamond, one can get. A good quality 1 carat diamond ring can be anywhere from 1,000 to 4,000 dollars depending on the clarity and color of the ring at the time of writing.

Unlike many other symbols of relationships between people a diamond is very much long lasting so one should take great care in selecting the one that is just right for the occasion and suits the wearer well.

A diamond ring should also be accompanied by a certificate of appraisal from an independent diamond laboratory to show the characteristics of that diamond. A simple certificate from the jeweler to say it is a 1 or 2 carat diamond is insufficient. The jeweler has a vested interest in selling the diamond and so the certificate does not come from a independent source. The quality should also be known in detail. It is possible to get two 1 carat diamonds but one can be worth twice as much if not more than the other quality wise, so it is really important that you know what you are spending your money on. Particularly if you are spending several thousand dollars.

Shop around. Find a dealer that is prepared to spend some time with you and can present a proper certificate of appraisal for their diamonds.

How much is a diamond engagement ring is a very important question and one you should ensure you know the answer to.
