Diamond Statement Rings: The 5 C’s
A diamond wedding ring is a symbol of everlasting love. It is a reminder that even though times may be tough, your love will always be strong. It's also a reminder of your immortal commitment to your partner. When it comes to shopping around for one, it's never easy. You have to consider a lot of things before you make your purchase. The style, the design, the metal type, the setting, the size, and of course, the price are all things that you have to look at. But that's for the overall design - what about the physical diamond itself?
When it comes to finding the right diamond for your ring, you need to take into account the Five C's. The Five C's stand for the color, clarity, cut, carat, and certification of the ring. The higher the grade of these five C’s, the more expensive the diamond will be. In this article, we'll go over the specific C's and help make your search more efficient for you and your partner!
The 5 C's Of a Diamond Statement Ring
The color is how white or colorless the diamond is. The most valuable diamonds are completely colorless. They're graded as D on the diamond color scale. The scale goes from D (no hue) to Z (a yellowish hued diamond). Different colors of diamonds will look noticeably different on a 14k gold engagement ring for example. Other colors that might look bad on a wide gold wedding ring might also look great on a heavy silver wedding ring.
The clarity is how many blemishes or inclusions and is judged on a 6 point scale. It's another way of judging a diamond by its purity. The clarity of a diamond is determined by how many inclusions there are inside the stone. The fewer inclusions, the higher the clarity grade will be. The inclusions can be seen with the naked eye and are known by different names depending on the type.
The cut is how well the diamond has been cut and includes the height, depth, angles, and other factors. In other words, the cut of a diamond is how it has been shaped and polished. The cut of a diamond greatly affects its appearance. A poor cut can make the stone look dull and lifeless. If a stone is cut too deeply, it will have dark spots and other undesirable features. The quality of some poorer cuts might look better on certain jewelry types like necklaces and earrings. You don't always have to go for the best cut to get a good look!
The carat weight is how a diamond is measured and is the size of the diamond. There are 100 points in a carat, so a quarter carat diamond would be 25 points. The term "carat" comes from the carob bean which was used to balance scales in ancient times. The most common carat sizes for iconic engagement ring diamonds are 0.5, 0.75, 1, 1.5, 2, 3, and 4.
The certification will list all the characteristics of the diamond. It's important to look for a certificate that lists all the characteristics of the diamond. This ensures that the ring you buy is made with high-quality diamonds. The certification should include the cut, color, and clarity of the diamonds. By looking for a certification, you can be sure that your statement ring will be made with beautiful, high-quality diamonds with 100% certainty.

We can incorporate all sorts of different metals into our designer engagement rings. Consider a gold ring or a yellow gold band to get a more traditional metal type. Or if you love the look of crystals but dislike diamonds, you could always swap anything with diamonds into a malachite, sapphire, or emerald ring.

Another great idea would be to keep the Solid Diamond Halo Ring as it is, but add colorful rubies, emeralds, and sapphires to create a flower ring.
We can also copy the design of our Diamond Birthstone Ring or our Solid Diamond Halo Ring and give you more design options. Add more exotic inlay materials to make the perfect multi-layer statement ring. Create a 100% floral halo ring with nearly infinite colors.
