QUESTION 9

WHAT IS YOUR BUDGET

Traditionally, jewelry stores would say that you should spend two or three months’ salary on the engagement ring. You could take that approach if you’re a traditionalist, but we recommend taking an approach that is more relevant to you. We like to think of the budget the same way we like to think about Engager Rings - what is appropriate for you. So keep in mind what you think you should spend and stick with that. We’ll help you choose and find the best options for you.

This is your time to shine. Demonstrating that you took the time and effort to have a ring personally designed for the love of your life is the strongest most intimate way to say "I love you."

Take your time and think deeply about what it is that you loved about the love of your life up to this point, what you love now, and what you always will love about them and we’ll get our designers to design the engagement ring for you. The way the engagement ring was meant to be. Once we’ve received your vision, the rest is easy - we’ll design it for you until you think it’s perfect.

  • The 4 Cs Of A Diamond

    The 4 Cs of diamond grading are the standard of which all diamonds are measured. 

    Though some diamonds may be graded exactly the same, it does not mean that it is identical though it is classed the same. Every diamond has its own subtle differences and personality making it unique and rare in its own right. 

Cut

The most important of the four Cs, Cut is is the measure that results in a diamond being noticeable from the other side of the room. No matter what the size of the diamond, light enters the diamond and is emitted with maximum brilliance when the diamond is cut with expert precision and symmetry. This is what allows a diamond to be as 'sparkly' as possible.

 

 

Cut grading scale

Color

A perfect diamond is colorless and free of milky or cloudy whites or yellows. Diamonds with a low color grade have a yellowish tinge instead of the desired and higher graded diamonds which are colorless. Colorlessness allows for brilliance, free of blockage from yellow or brown tinge. Fancy colored diamonds are not to be confused with the aforementioned tinge. Fancy colored diamonds are brilliant in their own right but are measured by ‘intensity.’ 

Color grading scale

Clarity

Diamonds have been forming under the earth’s surface for one to three billion years. Incredible amounts of heat and pressure make diamonds not only the hardest substance in the world, but also give it that clear composition. Sometimes, in that composition lies ‘imperfections’ called inclusions. Inclusions can be anything from tiny flecks, feathering, clouding, etc. any imperfection in the diamond’s composition that is not invisible. Some inclusions are not visible to the naked eye and still devalue the diamond. Generally, inclusions can interrupt the flow of light in the diamond making them undesirable and rendering a lower grade on the clarity scale.

1 Carat Oval Diamond On The Hand

Carat

Diamonds are measured by their weight and not their size. Because there are so many shapes, symmetries, variance in depths and cuts, weight is the most practical and universal to determine a diamond’s value. This unit of measurement is called a carat and one carat equals 0.02 grams (or twenty milligrams). Though it does contribute to the value of the diamond, the other Cs of the diamond truly determine its quality, which means Carat is important but not the most important. 

Carat grading scale

2 Carats

  • Diamond Certificates

    A diamond's certificate authenticates that the corresponding diamond's specifications. Some certificates go beyond the 4 Cs and indicate other important details like its measurements, fluorescence, laser inscription, and more. Never buy a diamond that isn't accompanied by a certificate from a credible lab such as GIA, HRD, EGL, IGI, or AGS.
