Shopping for a custom diamond engagement ring? You’ll need to take a crash course in what’s known as the “four Cs” of diamonds:
- Carat – The weight of the diamond
- Color – The less color a diamond has, the better its quality
- Clarity – The absence or presence of inclusions – or flaws – in the diamond
- Cut – How the diamond is crafted
It’s this last aspect that has the most to do with the overall beauty of the stone. The cut of a diamond refers to its proportions, finish and symmetry, and how its facets react to light. Here are a few of the most common diamond cuts that you might come across in your search for a custom diamond engagement ring.

And finally there’s cut, or the craftsmanship of a diamond: how the facets cooperate with light, the diamond’s overall finish and its proportions and symmetry.

In today’s market with rising gold prices, and your dollar not going as far as it used to, it has made it difficult to buy an affordable diamond engagement ring and get the look you want for the price you can afford. If you go into a reputable jewelry store to buy a nice quality 1 carat diamond you could easily spend $8,000 – $10,000. That would be a fair price for a nice mounting and diamond, but that would also be double the price of what you would of paid a few years ago!
