Keeping in mind the 4Cs, in my opinion it’s best to look for the best quality cut of diamond as opposed to the best color or clarity. A diamond with an excellent or ideal cut, with excellent symmetry will sparkle more incredibly than a poorly cut, flawless diamond. So what you’re looking for is a balance between the best quality of diamond internally, cut by the best craftsmanship of jeweler.

The most popular engagement bands are yellow gold, white gold, and platinum. There is no wrong choice. It all depends which color she prefers.

Book a table before inviting your girlfriend to your favorite restaurant. Keep candies and chocolates in a beautiful glass jar. Well it is not only about candies and chocolates but about something more. Along with the chocolates, ‘plant’ a round cut wedding ring alternatives in the jar as well. But be patient. Do not make any mention of the ring yourself. Let her see it on her own. She will be indeed surprised.
Choosing an engagement ring requires more than knowledge of the 4 Cs. Perhaps even more importantly is the preference of the intended recipient. Most women will look at hundreds of rings in catalogs, magazines and jewelry stores before deciding which style is perfect. Some women prefer other precious gemstones and opt for emeralds, sapphires, rubies, or some other favorite gem. Part of the process of selecting which ring to buy is determining which ones are the most appealing to HER.
