2 Carat Diamond Engagement Rings

2 ct diamond engagement rings make the ideal statement of a betrothal gift. It is a piece of jewelry your loved one will cherish forever, which is why it has to be just perfect. Procuring a 2 ct engagement ring may seem like a challenge for someone not familiar with diamond jewelry, but you can make good decisions quickly by doing a little research and educating yourself about engagement rings, diamonds and settings.

You can segregate the process of selecting a lovely ring into five steps. First you need to decide on a budget. This means you will have to pick the 4Cs for the desired diamond. By 4Cs, we mean the Carat, Cut, Color, and Clarity. Since we are talking about an engagement ring and women love nothing more than a big rock on their ring finger, talking about Carat is vital. Carat is the measure of a diamond’s weight. It may not reflect the diamond’s size as any set diamond is viewed from the top. It is best to judge the carat in conjunction with the diameter in millimeters across the top of the diamond, and the stone’s cut grade.

The second step involves thinking about a style, shape, look of the ring, metal type, setting, etc. Third, choose a diamond shape for the ring. This can be round, princess, emerald, asscher, marquise, radiant, oval, pear, heart, or cushion. It is crucial to know that while all diamonds are cut to emanate sparkle and brilliance, some cuts hide minor inclusions while others may need a higher clarity grade.

Step four is to select the metal type. This can be yellow or white gold, or platinum. Yellow gold is the more conventional of metals and seen as a symbol of warmth; also its color brings out the sparkle and beauty of any diamond. White gold is more contemporary and trendy. White gold and platinum are also well-liked for their colors, which go well with any attire. Platinum is considered a little expensive compared to white or yellow gold, but it is a reliable option for those who suffer from skin allergies.

And lastly, consider all the popular as well as unconventional setting options and choose the one that most suits your loved one’s style and personality. 2ct diamond engagement rings look superb in a solitaire setting, in white gold. If you want something to fit your budget while you stick to a 2 carat ring, choose a good cut, SI1-SI2 clarity, and an I or J color grade.
