What are your suggestions for selecting the right size diamond?

First, you want to consider the size of the recipient's hand and fingers. Is this for an engagement ring? Today the usual choice for an engagement ring begins at about 1.00 carat. A rule of thumb is that if the ring is a size 6 or smaller, you may want to reduce the carat weight to .90. A ct. very important consideration is your budget. A perfect one-carat diamond is a better gift than a flawed or poorly cut two-carat stone. If you are on a tight budget, you want to insure that you purchase the best ring your money can buy.

How can I make sure I am buying the correct ring size?

If you do not know your own ring size, simply request a set of complimentary ring sizers, and we will send them to you. If this is for your fiancé and she expects the ring, ask her what size she wears.

If the ring is going to be a surprise there are several sleuthing methods you can use to keep your purchase a secret and insure the ring will fit perfectly.

  • If you have access to the recipient's jewelry box, you may 'borrow' one of her rings to take in to a jeweler to have sized. Just remember to keep it for only a day and put it back right away.
  • If she already wears a ring on either of her ring fingers, you can try the romantic move. Tell her how delicate and small her hands are. Ask her to take off the ring and then you try to put it on your pinky. Make a big fuss about how small her finger is because it will not fit your pinky. Remember where that ring stopped on your finger. When you visit the jeweler for sizing, you can say exactly where the ring should fit.
  • Another covert action is to borrow her ring when she is otherwise occupied, and place it on a napkin or small piece of paper. You want to use the inside of the ring as a pattern, drawing a circle on the paper. You can fold the paper and put it in your pocket to have the jeweler size.

What metal should I select for the setting?

Which metal you select is a matter of personal choice and budget. If your fiancé always wears yellow gold, then you would select 14kt or 18kt, whichever fits your budget. If she wears white gold, yellow gold, rose gold and platinum, then you would select your favorite, again based on budget.

When you are deciding on whether to purchase 14kt or 18kt gold, you should remember that the higher the number, the higher the actual gold content. In each instance the gold is mixed with other metals to make a strong setting. 18 kt gold is more expensive than 14 kt, but it is also softer. 14kt contains 58.5% pure gold and 18kt contains 75% pure gold.

At we save money and the environment by utilizing 14kt and 18kt gold settings. Each of these metals is generally hard and makes an excellent choice for everyday wear.

If you are considering white gold or platinum, you may want to look into the latest white metal offering of Palladium. This newer alloy retains its white (silver) color and shine, is hypoallergenic and is often more popularly priced than gold or platinum. Palladium resembles platinum in its chemical make-up. Prices of gold and platinum change daily according to market increases (or decreases). Palladium is more stable in its pricing.

Platinum is the finest metal for fine jewelry making and is, in fact, more rare than gold. Because it is rarer, it is more expensive. Like Palladium, it is hypoallergenic. It is also very pliable which gives it properties where it can be stretched and maneuvered into exquisite settings. The number of customers selecting platinum has grown over the past several years, possibly because of its rarity and increasing value.
