    Before Buying Your Next Diamond Ring

    An elegant, solitaire diamond ring is truly timeless.  It’s perhaps the most coveted gift by women, no doubt.  I believe that less is more (not in terms of size) when it comes to diamond rings that you would label it as forever-chic.  Usually an investment purchase, it’s wise to be educated before choosing that dream ring.

    I want to share a nice little site called Diamond Database that I recently stumbled upon.  This informative platform provides a description of specific cuts & diamond size charts (from .25ct to celebrity sizes) along with diamond size comparison and more!  It is quite helpful indeed to really get a sense of what you may or may not want.

    Seeing the actual diamond size on a finger gives you a great idea as to what it would potentially look like on you.

    After browsing this helpful site, now I have a better perspective on the shape & size of diamonds. My next ring?  Well, whether it’s a diamond (hopefully!) or gem stone ring, I will definitely search one in a trillion cut as I adore anything that resembles a pyramid.  It also appears to be larger than the rest of the shapes which is a plus.

    You can apply the same method to comparing various colored gems by clicking here.  Hope this helps your next ring shopping outing!
