Heart Diamond Rings

Heart diamond rings are the best gift for women. The heart shape has forever been the symbol of love. Nothing says ‘I love you’ louder than a piece of jewelry with a heart shaped diamond. While a diamond ring is ideally an engagement announcement, if you are not at that stage of your relationship, you can choose any other jewelry with a heart shaped diamond. Some of the popular choices include heart shaped diamond pendant necklace and heart shaped diamond solitaire earrings. Another big dilemma for men is deciding on the budget for diamond gifts. You obviously want the diamond to look big, but how can you achieve this without having to shell out a substantial amount of money? Well, there are some tricks you can use to make her feel like a million bucks without actually spending all that much.

While it is a fact that any diamond’s grades in terms of the 4 Cs namely, carat, cut, clarity, and color determine its price, the diamond’s shape, cut and setting are major aspects that have a huge impact on its apparent size. A heart shaped diamond is a comparative fancy shape that looks larger than round brilliant diamonds carrying equal carat weight. These elongated diamonds also have the advantage of making the fingers look longer and elegant when worn with the pointed end towards the direction of the nails.

Setting is a crucial element when it comes to heart shaped rings. An ideal setting for making the diamond look bigger is a pave setting. This particular setting is made up of small diamonds set side by side into tiny holes with their surfaces in level with the setting to make it appear like a continuous surface of diamonds, while little beads of the precious metal chosen to make the ring hold the diamond in place. Intricate pave settings can be a bit expensive, so you might want to hold its price in comparison to buying a larger carat diamond instead. Another option is the illusion setting, wherein the diamond is mounted to a reflective plate before being set into the band. This setting not only makes the diamond look bigger than it is, but also allows it to appear more brilliant.

Many jewelers recommend shallow cut diamonds to make heart diamond rings look larger. This is a tempting offer as diamonds do appear bigger that the same size stones that have a deeper cut. The only downfall is that the diamonds that are shallow cut do not look as brilliant as the more proportional cut ones. This is because the light traveling through a shallow cut diamond does not bounce off the sides of the stone and back into your vision, but instead goes out the back of the diamond.
