boy after she sees the good in boy. Boy falls in love and so does girl.
Boy realizes he wants to marry girl. Now begins the search for that
perfect diamond ring.

It has been said that diamonds are a
girl’s best friend and from my experience, when you give her that bling
and ask her that special four-worded question it won’t even matter how
big the ring is at the time but a few days later as she shows the ring
off to her friends, that is when the size of the ring counts.

Before you even think about shopping for a ring you need to learn the 3C’s of diamonds:

Clarity, Color, Carat and Cut

1. Clarity
Clarity connotes the quality of
diamonds based upon the existence and visual appearance of internal
characteristics of a diamond called inclusions, and surface defects
called blemishes. Most diamonds have inclusions but that doesn’t effect
the diamonds’ ability to transmit and scatter light but large clouds
will as they effect the diamond’s performance or structural integrity

2. Color
A
perfect diamond is completely transparent with no hue or color.
However, in reality almost no diamond is absolutely perfect. The color
of a diamond may be affected by chemical impurities and/or structural
defects. Depending on the hue and intensity of a diamond’s coloration,
a diamond’s color can either detract from or enhance its value. For
example, most white diamonds are cheaper when more yellow hue is
detectable, while pink or blue diamonds can be way more expensive.

 

3. Cut
To many, this is the most important C
because even if the diamonds clarity and color isnt top of the line,
the quality of the cut can increase the value. A diamond cut involves
more or less symmetrical arrangement of angles which together modify
the shape and appearance of a diamond. If cut right, these angles will
make the rock reflect beautiful rainbow colors every time a light hits
it. Diamond cutters analyze shape and size of the crystal, when
choosing a cut. Using their skill and natural innovation, they create
magic. From marking and cleaving to sawing, bruting and faceting, they
turn plain hard rocks into brilliant accessories that illuminate your
wardrobe and your life, helping millions of young men tell the world
how much they love their girl.

4. Carat
Last
but not least, you must consider the weight of the diamond. Don’t
confuse carat with karet as the k-word refers to the fineness of gold
while carat refers to a diamond’s weight, not its size or diameter.

Fellas,
do your research and make sure you think really hard before you make a
purchase. Eventually your woman will take that ring and check the value
so don’t go cheap. At the same time, don’t get yourself into debt. When
you go to the jewelry store make sure you use the Jeweler’s Loupe
(magnifying glass) to examine the stones. No matter what, if she really
loves you, what you give her wont matter but your job is to make it
matter!
