Do you like to read anything about engagement and wedding? I adore it so much and I would like to share with you.
We are in summer and summer is a wedding season. For this reason, I see many articles about it and love to read it. A few weeks ago, I read an article about engagement rings. There are so many rules from shape to color.
These days it is very normal to ring shop together for couples but I am a traditionalist and prefer to surprise.

GIA certified diamond engagement rings are always better choice.

Understanding The 4Cs
The 4Cs outlines the most important information about a diamond engagement ring. They are clarity, color, carat weight and cut.
A diamond’s color valuation is based on the absence of color. Less color means higher quality. Diamonds are graded on scale from D to Z.
D-F: Colorless ( The rarest and highest quality)
G-J: Near Colorless (No discernible color, great quality)
N-R: Very Light
Clarity means inclusions in and on the surface of a diamond. Inclusions include small crystals, bruises and feathers. These flaws might be visible within or on top of the stone. The diamond clarity has six categories
Very, Very Slightly Included
Very Slightly Included
Many people confuse diamond’s cut with a diamond’s shape (including me). Diamond cut doesn’t refer to its shape but rather it refers to the how well the diamond is proportioned. It is graded;
Carat weight doesn’t based on the size of the stone. It is consider the diamond’s cut and dimensions. Diamond weight determine how large the diamond appears.
Non Diamond Gemstones
Non diamond gemstones are also very popular – sapphires, emeralds and rubies. Kate Middleton’s blue sapphire ring is still super popular.
Every engagement doesn’t have only center stone. Colored metals, three stone options, hidden hallos skinny pave bands and thin bands are very popular right now.
