Often the mistake is made when buying diamonds for the first time to either weight all 4 C’s equally or to look at them in isolation. This is a classic beginner’s mistake, which you can avoid if you read this article carefully. Let us remember that when choosing the right diamond, besides carat, the clarity of the diamond is also important. This describes how colorless the diamond is and is indicated on a scale from D to Z, where D stands for a virtually colorless, whitish diamond and Z for a diamond with a strong yellow tinge.

 

The more colorless a diamond is, the more expensive it is. Now to have more money available for the weight of the diamond without having to resort to a worse-looking diamond, you can do the following: Choose a gold rose ring instead of a silver one as the basis for your engagement ring. This looks modern but has another much more important advantage.

 

Diamonds quickly take on the color of their surroundings, which in this case means that no matter how colorless your diamond is, it will have a rose golden tinge. It is precisely for this reflection of the surroundings that diamonds are so prized. But what is the point of a very expensive diamond of color category D, if at the end it gets a gold rose color cast through the ring and looks the same as a diamond of color category G? Nothing. In this case you would have wasted money, which should be avoided when purchasing a diamond. So, choose a rose gold ring, save on the color category and invest the money you save in a higher carat number. This way you can quickly get your chosen diamond above the average diamond size without your future fiancée noticing that you have chosen a higher color category. On the contrary: rose gold rings have a vintage look without looking old-fashioned and thus combine the best of both worlds!

 

Summary

In summary, the carat indicates the weight of a diamond, which correlates strongly with the size, but several other factors determine the size and beauty of the diamond. To be above the average diamond size of engagement rings without taking out credit for it, remember to choose a rose gold engagement ring. When choosing a rose gold engagement ring, you can choose a 1.3 or even 1.5-carat diamond, which will make any woman’s heart beat faster.
