Many different reasons make them the ideal choice, but several key points do come to mind when considering purchasing them, for example, the four C’s.
The Four C’s & Diamond Shapes
The four C’s stand for a diamond’s color, cut, clarity, and carat weight. The diamond's color denotes a lack of color. A chemically pure and structurally flawless diamond has no color, just like a drop of clear water, and as a result, is a higher value.
Diamond clarity is the lack of imperfections and flaws. The fewer imperfections, the better. Natural diamonds are made when carbon is subjected to extreme heat and pressure in the earth's interior. Numerous internal traits referred to as "inclusions" and outward characteristics referred to as "blemishes" may be produced due to this procedure.
The weight of a diamond is expressed in terms of carats. The definition of a metric "carat" is 200 milligrams, which is the most objective of the diamond’s 4Cs.
And last but not least, the cut is perhaps one of the most important aspects of a diamond when it comes to engagement rings. So, these are the most popular diamond cuts for engagement rings and what you will typically find a married woman wearing on her finger – check it out below:
Without question, the most common diamond shape is the round cut. The diamond's brilliance is maximized by its round form. Round, brilliant cut diamonds are ideal for geometric, solitaires, twin, and three-stone settings. It's definitely the best option for brides who prefer everything traditional.
The oval-shaped diamond, which is essentially a long version of a round diamond, can have the same number of facets as a round-cut stone, which means it can dazzle just as brightly. It's a stylish and unusual option, and the finger can even look longer thanks to its oblong design.
The emerald cut is defined by the open table, cropped corners, and rectangular step cuts. In contrast to the round, it provides a subtle glimmer known as the "hall-of-mirrors" impression. The geometric lines and long silhouette highlight the diamond's clarity, which catches the light beautifully.
