Choose the Perfect Australia Wedding and Engagement Jewellery for that Special Day
When you set out to buy your lovely lady a diamond ring, consider the occasion that you are buying the ring for. Will it be an engagement ring to promise her a lifetime together or a three-stone diamond ring to commemorate your past, present and future? The occasion will determine the style of ring that you are looking for. If the diamond ring is for your engagement, you might consider purchasing a single diamond that is relatively large, known as a solitaire. You could also choose a diamond ring with a large centre diamond and smaller diamonds along the sides of the setting for an engagement ring. Also, if the personalized jewellery that you are looking for is a wedding ring, you could consider designs that are custom-made to match your engagement ring. Diamond eternity bands are a favourite choice for wedding rings, as are simple gold or platinum bands because they match many different styles of engagement rings.
When shopping for online jewellery, much importance should be placed on the quality of the centre diamond. The basics of buying a diamond are known as the 4Cs: cut, colour, clarity and carat weight. Let's examine these four factors individually: Cut would refer to two topics: The way in which the diamond is cut, round brilliant, princess, oval, radiant, heart, and pear shapes are some of the popular cuts that are available. Cut also refers to the quality of a cutters skill in shaping the diamond. An excellent cut diamond will have far more brilliance than a diamond with a poor cut. The colour is self-determined by how much yellow or brown a diamond has. The colour grade scale starts at D, which is the whitest and most pure and ends at Z, which has the most amount of yellow/brown colour. D-F is considered colourless, and G-J is considered near colourless. We recommend staying in the D-J colour range. Colourless diamonds are known to be the best quality and near colourless are excellent buys and allow a larger diamond to be purchased because of the price differences. Clarity refers to some flaws that the stone may or may not have. Each level of clarity can have a drastic difference in price. And lastly, carat weight refers to the size and weight of the stone.
Size and certification
When you think that you may have found the perfect diamond ring, your search is not over! You need to make sure that the ring is the correct size, and more importantly, that the diamond is certified and that it is genuine. Purchasing your diamond ring from a trusted retailer, and educating yourself on the quality of diamonds will ensure that you are satisfied with this important purchase. Customer testimonials are an excellent way to find out more about the company you are purchasing from.
