Gold ring with a diamond
A ring with a diamond is considered to be an adornment to be more feminine than masculine. Although initially this royal stone was considered the privilege of noblemen of the stronger sex. The beautiful half of humanity could not pass by exquisite perfection and, once having tried on a chic ring, presented it with sincere and eternal love, which turned out to be mutual.
It cannot be said that men have completely surrendered their positions, but nevertheless, more often they buy gold rings with diamonds for beloved and dear ladies. A few helpful tips below will help you find the best option, and for happy owners of a diamond accessory to show it in the best possible light and to keep it in perfect condition for a long time.
“Technical features” of the choice of diamonds
To understand whether the price of a gold diamond ring corresponds to its stated value, you need to pay attention to four parameters:
carat weight (1 carat – 0.2 g);
type of cut;
Each of these indicators in a certain way affects the value of the stone to a greater extent than its setting. All the necessary information should be indicated in the hemological passport that accompanies each piece of jewelery with a diamond insert weighing 1 carat or higher.
So, we study the passport. With weight everything is simple and clear: the larger the diamond, the higher the price and vice versa. The cut can be round with 57 facets – the most spectacular and common form; less complex 17-sided; fantasy – pear, drop, marquis, princess and a few more options. The type of cut depends on the shape of the stone, its main purpose is to mask the flaws and reveal the natural beauty to the full. Classic round diamonds are more expensive.
Absolutely colorless diamonds are quite rare. Most often, these are bluish, with a light pink hue or yellow stones, which in the hands of a skilled jeweler turn their disadvantage into dignity. To determine transparency, there are two scales: alphabetic – from D to Z and digital, which has 7 classes for stones weighing up to 0.29 carats and 9 classes for 0.3 carats and above. The smaller the value, the more valuable the diamond.
The purity of the stone is an indicator of perfect radiance and brilliance. It is determined by the international GIA system, and in Russia a digital scale is adopted – 9 classes for weights up to 0.29 carats, 12 classes for stones from 0.3 carats. The lower indicator is less foreign inclusions, voids and microcracks, which are present in almost every diamond.
Aesthetic matching and material benefits
Having dealt with all the subtleties, you can buy a gold ring with a diamond quite attractive in appearance and price. Some nuances are noticeable only to a specialist, for example – the difference in weight is 0.98 and 1 carat. The cost of these stones will differ quite substantially, and if the fact of incomplete carat is not psychologically oppressed, it makes sense to give preference to the first option.
Minor defects and light yellowness are skillfully hidden by the rim, so you should not look for a pure diamond, it is better to pay attention to the quality of work and the strength of the stone. And most importantly – to choose the ring that perfectly complements its owner:
the young girl is an elegant decoration with a small single stone or a path of them;
the same option is suitable for engagement;
the young woman is an elegant ring of fantasy shape;
An adult lady is a large stone of a classic cut, can be surrounded by small crystals.
To make the ring look perfect, do not leave it for a long time in direct sunlight, take it off while doing homework, rinse it in soapy water and wipe it with a soft cloth, sometimes show it to a jeweler for professional cleaning.
