Diamond Wedding Ring

Monday, September 11th, 2006

diamond wedding ringSometimes the time comes when you have to buy a diamond wedding ring. This is always an important occasion and much care needs to be taken to ensure that the ring you buy is exactly what you both want and the best you can possibly afford.

Of course the first consideration is usually the budget. How much can you spend?

Keep in mind that a good quality ring is going to cost around 2000 to 5000 dollars per carat depending on the quality of the ring. There are some important points you should be aware of when purchasing a diamond wedding ring.

Firstly the cut of the ring. There are a number of cuts available and the princess is one of the most popular. Remember that the ‘cut’ does not actually relate to the ’shape’ of the diamond but the way it is cut. Diamond cutters spend a lot of time examining a diamond to ensure that it is cut in the best possible way to give off the best sparkle and reflective light.

The color and the clarity of the Diamond is very important too. A poor color and too many flaws or inclusions will reduce the value of the diamond regardless of the weight. It is possible to get two 2 carat diamonds and have a difference of several thousands of dollars in value between them, the cut, color and clarity being so important.

So when you are shopping for a diamond wedding ring it is very important to be able to know what the quality of the diamond is. This is not done by asking the jeweler or accepting a certificate from the jeweler that says it is a good diamond and is 2 carats. It is done by asking for a certificate from an independent gemological laboratory. If the jeweler refuses this then walk out and fine one who is will to be honest enough to provide one.

When you buy a diamond wedding ring it is a ring for ever so you want the best you can afford to buy.

There are many links to more information about diamonds and how to choose then on the right so do take advantage of them and find out as much as you can about diamonds. There is no substitute for doing due diligence when it comes to selecting diamonds. Especially if you want to save yourself heartbreak when you find you have paid thousands for a diamond that is worth, at the most, a coupe of hundred dollars.

The metal the ring is set in is also important, Platinum and gold are the most popular metals and getting a good quality ring with 22 karat gold or 99.99% platinum is important. Platinum is going to be about twice the price of gold but is pure white and extremely hard and long lasting. It can look very beautiful with the diamonds arranged well. A good strong setting should be used and it should be tight and not loose so the diamond works its way out after a time.

A quality diamond wedding ring, well chosen, is a treasure that will last a lifetime so should be chosen with care.
