February 2011: apart from flowers and chocolates women also crave for jewelry. Every woman wants to have the best jewelry and every man wants to fulfill this wish of his woman. If it is about buying an engagement ring then it becomes more special. Every couple wants to have the best buy for their money when choosing their engagement ring. In order to get the best one they end up getting confused. It is important to be aware of few important things that help you get the maximum out of your money.

Engagement ring is very special to every couple. Make them further special by buying the best ones. You just have to keep a few things in mind while choosing your engagement rings. There are four important features of diamonds that have to be considered when buying one. These four features help you choose the best one from your budget.

It is common knowledge that diamonds look beautiful because of the cuts made on them. The jewelry looks good only because of the cuts. Check the certificate of the diamond for the type of cut. The best cut diamonds are graded as truehearts or hearts and arrows. They are the best ones to buy. Apart from these you can also go for ideal or premium type of cut.

Engagement rings are very special. It is a must to make sure that the diamonds that adorn them should also be special and that can be judged only through the clarity. The clarity of the diamond is rated. The highest rated diamonds for clarity are graded as IF or VVS1. However, if your budget doesn’t allow you to buy them then look for the diamonds that are clear. The diamond you choose should look clear to eye and nothing more. You don’t go around carrying the certificate saying that your diamond is the best rated.

Next comes, the color of the diamonds. Based on the color diamonds are rated D through I. It is suggested again that instead of going by the color in the certificate buy the one that looks the best and fits your budget the best. The difference in the color is not very significant hence there is no point in spending more for a diamond just because it is rated D, engagement rings are not meant to be harsh on the budget.

Another basic fact known to all is higher the carat value better is the diamond. Your jewelry costs high if it is studded with a diamond of high carat value. There are certain round weights like .5 ct, 1ct, 1.5 ct, 2ct and so on. Diamonds that weigh a carat less than these weights are cheaper. So look for them to make a good deal for your money.
