Recently, this question has been making the rounds. We cannot give you a yes or no answer purely because that is not what the question is actually asking. What the question is actually asking, is if you find a diamond engagement ring worth the money.
I can think of a few reasons why it is
Firstly, Tradition. For years, the diamond engagement ring has been a symbol of a promise to love them into the eternities (and your diamond will be able to follow you in terms of durability). Diamond Engagement rings have changed in terms of style over the years but one thing has remained at the centre of the trend, a diamond. White is not always right when it comes to diamonds. Diamonds come in a variety of colours, some being more rare than others, and some being less expensive than others. Beauty still remains in the eye of the beholder, so choose which ever colour suits you.
Secondly, the absolute ludicrous amount of pressure and heat needed to create such a beautiful stone. If you have never been to a diamond mine, you will never really understand how much earth is moved to get to the diamond. Then the work of precision starts. The rough diamond is cut by experts to refine its beauty and enhance it’s brilliance. Once you realise how much time is expended to retrieve and shape that diamond, you will have 100 times more appreciation for the diamond.
Another big reason is that of an heirloom. A Diamond keeps it’s value really well over time and can be passed down from generation to generation without it ever become dull (unless you really go out of your way to destroy it). Future generations can keep a part of their past with them in their jewellery even if It is redesigned into a new design that is more fitting for the time. This can save a lot of time spent looking for diamond engagement rings for sale.
Overall the choice lies with the buyer. When looking for diamond engagement rings for sale, keep the following in mind: Diamond prices can change wildly when the visual difference is not noticeable. So be sure to buy the one that looks good to you, and not the one that sounds better on paper. You can save yourself thousands by just being smart. Proper perusal prevent poor purchases: take the time to learn a bit about diamonds and what the clarity and colour gradings mean, Shop around and have a look at different stones at different places.
Feel free to consult with your designer. After all buying an engagement ring is not an everyday occurrence. Consider different designs to manipulate the diamond as you please, their appearance is much easier to manipulate than most people think.
In conclusion: be smart, be open minded, and head over heel in love with the one you choose.
