When a man sits down to look at diamonds, I’m sure there are a million things going through his head. Of course he is looking for the perfect engagement ring to make his significant other say yes to his proposal.
Like most, customers have a budget that we are happy to adhere to. Everyone seems to think the bigger the center diamond, the better, but many with a smaller budget come to realize it is a decision of compromise. Whether it is color, clarity or size, any of the three can be compromised with ease but any expert Gemologist should tell you that it is never recommended to compromise on the cut of a diamond.
There is good news if you are looking to enhance you center stone. Many settings can make the look of the center stone much larger. A perfect example of this is the Halo setting for any shape or size diamond. The Halo setting is one of the more popular choices because its purpose serves to enlarge the look of the center diamond. The important part of the Halo setting is the size of the diamonds making up the Halo. This is because you do not want the size of the stones in the Halo to be too large, as they will take away from the center diamond’s brilliance. A halo can make a center stone look almost a carat size larger, sometimes even more. This is a beautiful addition to any center stone because the look of the final product is very classy yet not overdone if done right.
We most look forward to all testimonials from our customers, letting us know “SHE SAID YES!”.
A majority of the time, woman have no idea what is on their man’s mind. Whether it be work, his friends and family or even YOU! Ladies if you have a good man, give him time. Just when you think things might be getting rocky in your relationship or if he has been “out” a few questionable times, (because women have that intuition when something’s “off”) he might just be out looking for the perfect diamond for you.
Time after time we see so many men come in with some idea of what they are looking for, sometimes they have no idea, but we are here to help! It is critical for men to work with someone they trust when making such a large purchase. This is especially important when picking out a diamond because there are many factors that come into play; working within respect to the parameters of a man’s budget and wishes for size, color, clarity, cut, certification type, as well as the time it takes to choose the best setting for the diamond.
When the trust is built with our clients, they know they are getting only the best service, education and experience.
It is truly a beautiful process from beginning to end to see the men finally walk out confident with their choice of an engagement ring. Personally we really look forward to that e-mail or phone call we receive when we know she said yes and loves her custom ring.
So much effort is put into choosing the perfect diamond just for you ladies so please recognize your man for the time and effort he has put forth to make you his happily wedded wife forever!
