Picking out the perfect engagement ring

The moment is here, you are going to propose to the love of your life! This is a moment that you both will remember for the rest of your lives! Now, how do you pick out the perfect engagement ring?

Here are some helpful tips. 

The four C’s

In the jewelry world, there are the four C’s that are critical to the decision of any engagement ring Omaha. The first C is cut. The cut relates to the proportioning of the diamond. If the diamond is cut correctly, it will sit perfectly! A pavilion dept that is too shallow or too deep will allow for the light to escape from the diamond and produce a dull looking ring. 

The next C is color. The color of a diamond depends on what the customer is searching for. You can get diamonds in colors from emerald green to slight degrees of differences of the translucent diamond.

Third C is clarity. There is a clarity chart for all diamonds that ranges in flawless to inclusions. Diamond clarity refers to the absence of these inclusions and blemishes. Diamonds without inclusions or blemishes are assigned as Flawless (FL) diamonds. 


The fourth and final C is carat weight. Diamonds, just like any other gemstone, are weighted in metrics of their weight. A diamond can range from .5 of a carat to over five carats! One carat weights as much as a paper clip. Should you know this for picking out an engagement ring? It would be helpful to understand the type of cut, color or even carat weight you are searching for in any engagement rings Omaha! The cut can change the entire budget, so it is important to narrow down the shape your significant other is searching for when it comes to their forever ring. 

Settings and metal

The metal band that will hold the most perfect diamond is the second decision. There are a number of important decisions when it comes to picking out the perfect engagement ring. The right combination in deciding on an engagement ring is important to the overall look of the ring. 

Wedding bands
