1 Carat Engagement Ring

Perhaps the most famous use of the diamond in jewelry is in engagement rings, which became popular in the early to mid 20th century due to an advertising campaign by the De Beers company, though diamond rings have been used to symbolize engagements since at least the 15th century.

The carat (ct) is a unit of mass equal to 200 mg and is used for measuring gemstones and pearls. The current definition, sometimes known as the metric carat, was adopted in 1907 at the Fourth General Conference on Weights and Measures, and soon afterwards in many countries around the world.

The size difference between a 1 carat engagement ring and 2 carat engagement ring is less noticeable for fancy-shaped diamond cuts such as the heart, marquise or pear, as the weight of the diamond is spread evenly over the whole surface. With flatter stones, like the cushion cut, there is a more marked visual difference.

Even if you determine that you can’t afford as big a ring as you hoped, consider buying something more modest and popping the question anyway. You can always trade up for a nicer ring in a few years when your financial picture is more established.

Emerald Cut Diamond Engagement Rings

A diamond cut is a style or design guide used when shaping a diamond for polishing such as the emerald cut. Cut does not refer to shape, but the symmetry, proportioning and polish of a diamond.

The cut of a diamond greatly affects a diamond’s brilliance.

Diamond Engagement Rings Part One: The Diamond

Diamond Engagement Ring
Asking someone to spend the rest of their life with you is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make. Besides maybe career choice, it will have the greatest impact on your overall happiness of any decision you make. An enormous amount of time and energy has already been spent by this point in your relationship and you’re planning to spend even more time and energy as you grow together. With so much riding on this moment, you’re going to want to make a good impression. This is the first entry in a multi-part series about how to get the most important moment of your life right in one try.

The diamond is the most important part of the ring so I’m going to cover that first. Diamonds are designed to be gorgeous centerpieces that come in a wide variety of shapes and look good on nearly any metal in nearly any configuration. From the classic round to the adorable heart, diamonds are cut to sparkle. Whatever the look of the diamond (or diamonds) the focus should be on finding quality stones that appear to be well cut, clear and that shine brightly. Be sure to inspect the diamond for any flaws or specks. Take your time to compare high quality diamonds and low quality diamonds. Know what you’re looking for. It’s okay to become a bit of an expert to get it right. It’s worth it.Diamond Engagement Ring

The next thing to decide is the size. This is a bit more complicated than choosing the largest diamond you can find within your budget. You can make compromises on quality for size. Alternatively, you can set smaller diamonds next to a larger one. You can choose a shape with a larger table size (top surface) like an emerald cut. A small diamond that is cut properly and shines brightly will look more impressive than a large dull rock. You should consider also, the possibility that a large diamond might simply be impractical.

The Future of Diamond Engagement Rings

diamond engagement ring
I am seeing a new trend in Engagement Rings. The old diamond and gold ring is slowly shifting to colored stones and contemporary metals. Even if brides are still getting colored diamonds, they may choose one that is pink, chocolate or yellow.

After Princess Kate showed the world her ring, even other stones, never before used as the main stone, are becoming popular. Her sapphire ring with diamond halo is one of the most copied rings in the past few years. I have seen rubies, and sapphires as the main stone in engagement rings, but I try to avoid supporting an Emerald, as it is not durable for everyday wear. Three Stone Rings are very popular rings to use diamond alternatives in, as well as using a diamond for one or both of the other stones. With these options, you can still keep the diamond tradition, yet have a modern look as well. You may even choose no diamonds and have a colored stone solitaire!

One of my favorite metals that is trending is Palladium. It is a wonderful alternative to white gold, as it is a beautiful silvery color without the rhodium plating you get to create white gold. It is hypo allergenic and is as durable as gold. I think it is worth the extra price in the long run, as it does cost more than gold.

I love helping any couple find the perfect rings, but when we design one together that breaks tradition, it gets really exciting! I can’t wait to see that the future brings in Diamond Engagement Rings to start designing new looks for my brides.

Engagement Ring Rule #1

engagement ring shape
Even before those 4 Cs (cut, color, clarity, and carat), you must know what shape your future fiancee loves. Shape indicates the actual geometry of the stone, as opposed to cut, which relates to the angles of the facets in the stone.
