A Diamond Ring Is Only a Step Away
Who was it that said that "diamonds are a girl's best friend"? They were right. A diamond ring is most girl's diamond of choice; and with diamonds of lots of different sizes and cuts available, one can never have too many! Have a look about at what is available, and have fun trying...and then even more fun buying! They are beautiful, and plus, nothing says success like diamond rings.
First, lets look at color. Whilst most people assume that diamonds are always white/light in color; this isn't the case. The rarest and most desired of diamonds have a bright sharp color running through them. These, however, are very expensive. Most probably the diamonds that you will come across will be clear diamonds or those with a faint tint of yellow; and for this you need to pay attention and ensure that they are flawless, with good clarity.
The cut of your diamond ring is also an important consideration. There are six principle shapes of diamonds. These are round cut, pear-shaped, oval-shaped, heart shaped, emerald-cut and marquise. The cut you choose will depend a lot on the size of your hand and fingers- try them on and see what suits you. If you are just wanting something plain and simple; go for the most popular diamond cut- the round cut. However, if you are wanting something more unique, look at the different cuts and sizes to find something unique to you. Remember, no diamond is ever the same!
There's also the option of having a ring with multiple diamonds rather than a solitaire- a cluster perhaps; or a band studded with them? You can also have them set in gold or in platinum. The choices really are endless; and there doesn't even need to be a reason to buy one (or indeed have one bought for you)!
Want to mark a special event? Well, there's nothing better than a timeless diamond ring to remember it with. They make the perfect gift also; to show someone how much they mean to you. Say it with a diamond- they'll love you forever! Or do you just want to treat yourself to one? Every girl deserves a treat, and what's better than a diamond one that you can show off every time you hand over your credit card!
Diamond rings go with everything (any outfit, any shoes), and they will never go out of fashion. It's a big investment, so make sure you take everything into consideration, and really are happy with your choice. To make sure that your diamond ring stays perfect forever, put it on after applying make up and hair products so that the surface of the diamond isn't tainted. The best way to clean your diamond ring is to put it in a bowl of hot water, and use a toothbrush to gently rub it. Do this, and it will be a friend for life. A shiny friend for life!
