The choice between a diamonds and Sapphires Engagement Ring


Diamonds are the hardest stone so are ideal for an engagement ring the will be worn everyday. If you’re considering a diamond engagement ring, we will educate you on the 4Cs: Diamond cut, colour, clarity, and carat weight. The cut determines how well a diamond reflects light, while colour refers to the absence of colour in a diamond. Clarity measures the presence of flaws or inclusions, and carat weight refers to the size of the diamond. Understanding these factors will help you choose a diamond that is perfect.
