HOW TO SELECT YOUR FORT WORTH ENGAGEMENT RING OR DIAMOND WEDDING BAND

One of the questions many ask is, “How do I choose an engagement ring Fort Worth?” Our diamond experts will ensure that the process of selecting the perfect diamond engagement ring is an enjoyable one. As a member of the American Gem Society (AGS), Pieter Andries offers only the highest quality diamond engagement rings. In addition, Pieter Andries and his staff are experts in diamond and gemstone selection, and are happy to assist you with finding the ideal engagement ring within your budget. Below are qualities to consider when buying a diamond:

  1. Cut: This has the greatest effect on a diamond's beauty. In grading, cut evaluates the cutters skill in the fashioning of the diamond. Diamonds have a unique ability to manipulate light efficiently. This unique ability can be released and maximized only by cutting and polishing the diamond to an extremely high level of accuracy. The American Gem Society Cut Grading System considers not only the proportions of a diamond, but also the craftsmanship of its overall symmetry and polish.
     
  2. Color. A truly colorless diamond is extremely rare. Most diamonds possess varying degrees of yellow or brown and small, subtle differences in color can make a substantial difference in value. If a diamond is well cut, the diamond's refraction and dispersion often will disguise certain degrees of coloration. Unless a diamond is a fancy color (or any color other than colorless to light yellow or brown), the American Gem Society Color Grading System places it on a 0 to 10 scale, 0 being colorless.
     
  3. Clarity. Clarity is the evaluation of a diamond's internal and external characteristics. The fewer inclusions or blemishes, the more desirable the diamond. Inclusions are internal, that is, inside the diamond. Crystals are merely minerals trapped inside the diamond; feathers are breaks in the diamond. Blemishes are usually very small and are only on the surface of diamonds. When evaluating the size, location, nature, number, and color of all the inclusions and blemishes, a clarity grade from 0-10 is assigned – 0 being flawless or internally flawless.
     
  4. Carat. The standard used to measure diamond weight is the carat.  A carat equals 1/5 of a gram (or 1/142 of an ounce).  Each carat is further divided into points, each point representing 1/100th of a carat. As diamonds increase in size, their cost tends to increase geometrically. Thus, a one-carat diamond may cost more than twice as much as a one-half carat stone of equal quality. Also, as previously stated, weight does not always enhance the value of a diamond. In fact, when a diamond is improperly cut, added weight may serve only to reduce its brilliance.
