Learn About Diamonds to Make Your Own Engagement Ring
Firstly, you need do some diamond research. Have a look round the internet for diamond guides. Remember the important characteristics of a diamond, effecting price and quality are a diamond 4’cs – cut, clarity, colour and carat weight. The diamond cut is the angles and proportions in the diamond to determine it’s brilliance update `wp_posts` set `post_content` = the better a diamond is cut, the more it will sparkle) The diamond clarity is the amount of imperfections a diamond has inside and on the surface, only to be seen close up or with a microscope. Diamond colour, white diamonds are graded highest on the lack of colour it has update `wp_posts` set `post_content` = lower diamond colour grades may have tints of brown and yellow) Diamond carat weight is basically a measurement of the diamonds weight, not necessary a reflect on the size of the diamond.
Once you have decided on the diamond, it’s time to choose the setting you want the diamond to be held in. Start by choosing the precious metal you want – usually platinum or 18 carat white and yellow gold. In the image above you will see the engagement ring setting and band is made up with three parts – the setting where the diamond sits, the shoulders and the shank. Most engagement rings are claw set with prongs that hold the diamond in place. The size, shape and number of claws can vary depending on the shape of diamond you have selected. The other popular engagement ring setting is bezel settings, where the diamond is secured by the precious metal set around the entire shape of the diamond. You can also choose whether you want the shoulders of the ring to be set with diamonds and what shape you want the shank to be – court shape, flat shape, D-shape, knife edge.
