How to Buy a Diamond Engagement Ring

Purchasing a diamond engagement ring is a significant milestone. Here's a guide to help you make an informed decision that matches both your emotional and financial expectations.

Determine Your Budget

Start by deciding how much you are willing to spend. Remember, the cost of the ring should not overshadow its significance.

Understand the 4Cs

Familiarize yourself with the 4Cs of diamonds: Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat. The cut determines the diamond's brilliance, color shows how colorless it is, clarity refers to the absence of inclusions, and carat is the weight.

Consider Custom Design

Verify the Certification

Ensure that the diamond comes with a certification from a reputable lab like the IGI or GIA, which verifies its quality and authenticity. All diamond engagement rings from The Better Diamonds come with a IGI certification.
