Definitely a girl's best friend. Diamonds are the ultimate gift for a loved one as they are the symbol of eternal love.
When choosing a Diamond ring, look at the quality of the construction e.g. is it too lightweight underneath the setting, do the claws look strong, is the band sturdy enough for daily wear, do the stones shine or are they dull?
Excellent Cut or Very Good Cut will ensure the brightness of the diamonds even if the colour grade and clarity maybe down the scale a little. Here are samples of two clusters with the same amount of diamond in them .25ct (1/4 Carat).
Which one would you choose as most suitable for your lifestyle?
