Hello there gentlemen. We know you’ve been running the same question on your head for months now. What ring should I buy when I pop her question? Of course, you’d want to get your woman something really special and something that will somehow be a symbol of your love for her. Don’t worry we’ve got you covered. Say hello to platinum diamond solitaire rings. But how do you exactly buy one? Again, you are in luck as we have some expert tips and tricks for you.
Remember the 4 Cs which stand for clarity, color, carat weight and cut.
CLARITY describes the absence of internal and external blemishes on the diamond itself. Diamonds like most minerals on earth are formed after millions of years through pressure from the earth’s crust and core. It is common for these stones to have internal blemishes that could appear as small flakes of other color or minor scratches. What are rare are those that have very minimal to none.
COLOR is also a thing to remember. Most people are accustomed to the translucent diamonds but there too are those that have hue in them such as yellow, black, brown, pink and blue.
CARAT WEIGHT is all about the mass of the stone. Of course, the bigger it is, the more rare and expensive it becomes. Remember that solitaire rings were popularized by famous jeweler Tiffany & Co. decades back when they released their six prong version. They are characterized by a single stone set on the metal.
CUT completes the 4 Cs. This is very essential when it comes to luster, shine and fire. The way that a diamond or any other precious stone is cut affects the way in which light travels and reflects from it. The better the cut and the more facets it has, the better its luster and fire. There are many cuts for diamond solitaire rings (i.e. princess, asher, pillow, round, etc).
Additionally, it is important for you to make ample research before you go out and purchase right then and there. Know the jeweler or supplier first and ascertain not only their product quality but their customer service and client feedback as well.
When you have finally bought the best platinum diamond solitaire rings that your beau will love, then all you need is a bucketful of courage to go and ask her the question. Don’t worry, she’ll say a big fat yes!
