A Look At Picking The Right Pink Diamond Engagement Ring

By Kyle Loroft

If you’re looking for a modern take on the classic white diamond engagement ring, consider a pink diamond. The tradition of a man presenting a diamond engagement ring to his bride has been around since the’50s. To show how deeply committed he is to his loved one, the groom will spend a huge chunk of his salary on her ring.

Within the last decade, colored stones have become an acceptable change from the traditional white diamond because they are both unique and eye-catching.

There are four C’s of color diamonds that you must know prior to the purchase of a pink engagement ring. These four C’s have just a hint of difference in meaning from the rules for white diamonds. The 4 C’s for determining the right diamond are: Color of the stone; Carat, or size of the stone; Cut, the shape of the stone; and Clarity, the quality of the stone. The price of an engagement ring will be established by these four C’s.

Color: This is the most important aspect when looking at colored diamonds. Some stones are mostly clear with a little big of color. In some stones, you can only see the color at certain angles or lighting because it is so small. Consistency is very important when looking at the stone’s color. Throughout the stone, there should only be one color.

Carat – the size of stone you choose will determine how expensive it will be. In the purchase of a color diamond ring; however, size is not as crucial as color intensity. Because they are so uncommon, small, brilliant stones will be more costly than larger stones with less color. If intensity of color is most important to you, then you may be much happier with a small stone and a setting that enhances the stone’s brilliance.

The cut of a stone is important because it can either enhance or diminish the stone’s color. The cut in pink diamond engagement rings is of utmost importance. The cuts that most enhance the color of pink diamond engagement rings are: Princess Round, and/or Marquise. A colorless stone is better if you prefer more unique cuts.

Clarity is essential regardless of the diamond you choose. Clear stones do not contain any blemishes, fractures or flaws. Clarity of color is even more essential with colored stones because cloudiness can retract from the diamond’s true brilliance and intensity.
