Oh i love talking about diamonds!!! Just clicked that you’re already engaged lol so this doesn’t apply, hopefully will be helpful for those that have yet to get their ring!!

Mine is G SI 1 (officially, more later)

If you are looking for e rings, don’t get caught up in the clarity side. Don’t buy an internally flawless diamond, one knock and it’s no longer flawless, they are tough but can still be damaged through chipping.

I worked in ajewellery store for a while and had a brilliant time trying on all the huge and beautiful diamond rings (I was yet to be engaged and wanted to learn more about diamonds so I thought it was a good idea to ‘learn the trade’). 

Colour is very important, you want your diamond, small or large, to look like a piece of ice on your finger, as clear as you can afford. DEF diamonds are much more expensive but if you go for G, one grade down, thedifference in price is large but the colour difference between F and G is so marginal. 

The most important aspect is cut. Your better compromising on clarity and paying the extra for a beautiful cut. I fell in love with Leo diamonds, most were SI 1 and 2 and made my eyes hurt when they caught the light as they are cut so precisely. Don’t get sucked in to the ‘lower clarity is bad’ idea, it’s the cut that makes the sparkle, not the clarity (unless of course there are whacking great black clumps in it, avoid those!)

My own diamond is a bit different. It’s been enhanced which lowered the cost for us as we are students but I paid for an SI1 diamond which was enhanced (inclusions disguised) to become a VS 1 or 2 I think. If you have the option, it’s such a great way of getting more for your money which meant I could also have a bigger diamond 🙂 do your research on enhancing, there are good kinds and bad. I can’t remember the name of the process mine had but I know the onlything that can compromise the diamond is extremely high temperatures and strong acids, not things likely to occur in everyday life.

Size wise- if a carat is what you want go just under around 0.94, as soon as you reach the 1 carat mark the price rockets. The visible size difference between these sizes is tiny, no one will tell that it’s not 1 carat unless they compare it right next to another one! 

Lastly, try and avoid retail jewellers, the mark up prices are immense trust me, don’t forget you pay their wages/electricity/rent etc when you buy your diamond there. We went to a local family run business, well known around the community. My ring was custom made so I chose exactly what I wanted cut, clarity, colour wise which was great. The finalproduct was way  less expensive than The retail equivalent. Valuation was double what we paid for the ring. Diamond retailers know what an emotional purchase a diamond is, same as wedding dress retailers. Don’t get caught up in it, they will always show you more expensive rings hoping you fall head over heels then poor boyf has to pick up the bill. Know what you want before you go, but try plenty on, you might be surprised at what you choose.

Do your research, be clever about it and you will be rewarded with a diamond ring you love at a price that you could afford. Happy searching!
