Selecting Wedding & Engagement Jewelry
Choosing the perfect engagement ring for women can be nerve-racking. Throw in wedding and bridal sets that are now being offered and it can be downright confusing.

Wedding sets include both of these rings plus the man’s ring. These options can save you money, make choosing easier on the groom-to-be, and allow you to have matching rings.

The Four C’s When Choosing an Engagement Ring:
Naturally, a comfortable fit is an important aspect of choosing an engagement ring. But, deciding between diamonds is a bit trickier. That’s why the “4 C’s” have been put into place: Color, Cut, Clarity, and Carat. This system helps you compare and choose what is the best diamond for your needs and budget.
All of these characteristics are important, but some more so than others. Of course, the higher grade a diamond is, the better quality it is. However, it doesn’t need to be the best quality in each category to still be a beautiful diamond.
Consider your priorities when choosing a diamond. Is the “sparkle factor” the most important? Or perhaps you want the clearest of all diamonds? Keep these in mind when making your comparisons.
Read on to learn more about each of the 4 C’s to help you in the ring buying process.
The color of diamonds is evaluated on a 23-grade scale. The clearest, or most colorless stones, are rated as D and continue down to Z, which has the most yellow tint. Since clear diamonds are the most highly valued and rarest, they will be the most expensive option. That said, you can still find stunning, colorless diamonds in the G to I range that will be much more budget-friendly.
The cut is the most complex, and important, aspect of choosing a diamond. This is because it determines how much a diamond sparkles, depending on the way light plays off of and through the facets of the stone. Precisely cut diamonds channel more light through the crown. Light escapes through ones that have been cut too deep or shallow.
Diamonds, being a naturally-occurring material in the earth, are prone to imperfections. While it is a diamond cutter’s job to avoid as many of these as possible, some stones may still end up with some minor ones, called inclusions and blemishes. Clarity refers to the lack of these imperfections. There is a scale for these as well, starting with Flawless, the rarest and most expensive diamonds, and ending with Included 3, which may include several flaws and are the least expensive. It’s worth noting that these abnormalities are very often nearly impossible to recognize with the naked eye.
Contrary to popular belief, carat refers to how much a diamond weighs, not how large it is size-wise. But, carat does play a part in how big a stone looks. This factor, too, will affect the price of a diamond. The heavier the stone, the higher the cost of the ring. 1.0 to 1.09-carat diamond engagement rings are the most popular, but plenty of people also purchase ones slightly lighter or slightly heavier. It all depends on personal preference and budget.
