Black Diamond Rings

February 16th, 2010

A diamond ring symbolizes a lot of things for different people. It could be a symbol of love, eternity, hope, and loyalty. That is why you want to make sure to select the best diamond ring that would encompass all of these in one beautiful jewelry. The truth is, not everyone knows how to select the right diamond.

While some women could only dream of getting diamonds for the first time when they get engaged, you would be pleased to know that you no longer have to wait for that moment. A lot of jewelry and non-engagement rings come with beautifully cut diamonds in all shapes and colors. You just have to know how to gauge a diamond by yourself.

The first characteristic of a diamond is its clarity. We all know how brilliant a diamond shines when light strikes upon it. If a diamond has less of those specks or imperfections, it could reflect more light, and thus it has a higher value than other diamonds. Technically, Gemological Institute of America would classify diamonds according to its clarity by the following range: Flawless to Imperfect.

The second characteristic of a diamond is its cut. Because a diamond has a lot of facets, a diamond cutter must know how to cut a diamond so as to maximize the number of facets that will be able to reflect light. Knowing this, a poorly cut diamond will be less brilliant.

The third characteristic is a diamond’s color. People thought that diamonds only come in white. However diamonds come in an ammazingly wide variety of colors, like pink, blue and red, a newer trend these days is seeing people leaning towards the black diamond ring.  However, a diamond’s color could also determine it’s purity and so some people prefer diamonds with less yellow into it.

The last but not the least is the its weight measurement called the carat. Please do not confuse the carat for the diamond size as bigger diamonds does not automatically mean they are heavier.

Now that you know the four C’s of a diamond, it is very important that you consider all these things first before making your purchase. Make a list of all the characteristics that you want in varying budgets then shop around. Please check first the online shop where you will make your purchase. Try to contact the customers who have left them comments as they could be fraud. You could never be careful with diamonds. Diamonds are normally mounted in gold or platinum, rarely silver. To pick the right setting for your ring it’s best to learn a little about the properties and characteristics of gold jewellery first.   You want your ring and setting to reflect the beauty of the diamond properly, to do so white gold or platinum will provide a better showcase for your stone.
