- Wedding: October 2013
It is so exciting when you start the process of becoming engaged. You look online at different rings, you go to stores and try them on, just to imagine what it will be like to be newly enaged. You invision what it will be like the first time you hold out your hand and show your beautiful new diamond. Then that’s where the drama starts, you begin to aganozie over Cut, Clarity, Color and Carat. You wonder, if 3/4 carat will be large enough, I want 1 carat but it would be cheaper if I got .90 carats, You wonder about the different cuts of diamond and which one will look larger on your finger. You find out that some cuts simply face up smaller than others, like a cushion cut or princess cut is always going to face up smaller than a roudn brilliant.
So to help with the stress of wondering what all of the stones look like. I made this little cart of the different cuts in a 1 carat side, just to give newbies an idea. Here is the website I visited. But even with that, you can’t get a side by side comparison, so here you go and I hope it helps a newly engaged woman waiting on her beautiful ring, agonize a little less over the size of the stone.
