Choosing your wedding ring is arguably one of the most important decisions you can make on the run-up to the big day, and it is one which you will carry with you throughout the rest of your life.
When choosing a wedding ring you will often hear of the fours C’s: color, clarity, carat, and cut. These combine to ensure that you get the best possible diamond to put on your finger on your wedding day. Here are the four C’s is more detail and how they can help you pick that perfect diamond.
Ideally a diamond is colorless. If you look at the purest diamonds in the world they usually contain no color because there are no other elements mixed into the crystal. Of course, most diamonds you buy will have a slightly yellow hue due to impurities, but it is the sheer magnitude of yellow which you can look at here. A diamond graded D is colorless, and this is the most expensive diamond you can buy. It is something which will depend highly on your budget, style, and taste.
Clarity is the measure of how clear your diamond is. Most diamonds will contain some indents or fingerprints which make them unique and imperfect. If you want a clear and almost perfectly sparkling diamond you will need to spend more, as the diamond is worth more.
The carat of a diamond is usually mistaken for the size, however, it actually pertains to the weight of the stone. The heavier a diamond is, the best the quality and therefore the more expensive it is for you to buy. Even if you can’t afford a huge diamond for your wedding ring, certain cuts can actually make the diamond look larger than it is, so don’t worry if you are on a strict budget.
The final C we are going to talk about is the cut of your diamond. This is the last stage in your diamond choosing process and is arguably on one of the most important decisions you make in regards to your diamond. The cut you choose can increase the style, prospective size, the color and even the light it shines when reflecting on objects. There are many different cuts you can choose from and here are some of them.
