Engagement Season Is Upon Us

by Anne Middleton, on October 13th, 2015

Engagement season is upon us, singletons.  The time between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day is one of the most popular times to pop the question.  Are you eyeing a bedazzling ring for your honey?  Here’s your shopping guide.

Do you know the 4 Cs?  Clarity, cut, color and carats are the first four considerations when spending on a diamond. 

Clarity—All diamonds have tiny imperfections. Look for an “eye clean” diamond, meaning the imperfections are not visible to the unaided eye.

Cut—Arguably a gem’s most important characteristic, the cut gives the diamond its sparkle.

Color—Almost all diamonds have color that can be detected by an expert gemologist. Higher valued diamonds have a lack of color.

Carats—Carats are a measure of weight, but not necessarily size.  Also consider the millimeters across the top of the diamond and the grade of the cut.

For a more in-depth tutelage in grading, I suggest Diamond Grading by Touchapp.  Don’t have an iPhone?  T-Mobile makes it facile to get the latest iPhone and afford that nuptial ring when you shop using our codes.  Android user?  Go to the authorities on diamond evaluation, the GIA, by loading the GIA 4Cs Guide app on your new Samsung Galaxy Note5 from Verizon.  Use our codes to save and you’ll feel as brilliant as a diamond.  We propose you take a little time to study up before making this expenditure.  We don’t have codes specifically for diamonds, but we have a treasure trove of codes to help you pop the question.
