Step 1: Choose a diamond based on the 4Cs.
A diamond’s colour is measured on a scale from D to Z, with D representing a colourless diamond and Z representing a coloured, yellow diamond.
L to R: Colourless (D-E-F), Near Colourless (G-H-I), Faint Yellow (J-K-L-M), Very Light Yellow (N-O-P-Q-R) and Light Yellow (S-T- U-V & W-X-Y-Z)
L to R: Shallow Cut, Ideal Cut and Deep Cut
Clarity refers to the absence of imperfections such as inclusions and blemishes on a diamond. Inclusions are caused by small crystals trapped within a diamond during its formation, whereas blemishes are external flaws on a diamond’s surface.
L to R: Flawless, Internally Flawless (FL, IF), Very Very Slightly Included (VVS1,VVS2), Very Slightly Included (VS1,VS2), Slightly Included (SI1, SI2, SI3) and Included (I1,I2,I3)
Lastly, a diamond’s value is measured through its weight or carat. One carat is equivalent to 200 milligrams, and each carat can be subdivided into 100 “points”.
L to R: 0.50ct, 0.75ct, 1.00ct, 2.00ct and 5.00ct
Step 2: Choose a 4-Prong Ring or a 6-Prong Ring.
Next, you have to choose whether you want a ring with 4 prongs or 6 prongs.
A 4-Prong Ring accentuates and produces a squarish look for diamonds. However, it can be a bit unstable and the diamond might fall off.
On the other hand, a 6-Prong Ring is more secure and is suitable for round diamonds, but it might overshadow smaller diamonds.
