How to Choose the Perfect Engagement Ring

There are various factors to consider when it comes to buying elegant diamond engagement rings. Considering these factors before making the purchase will ensure that you will have a perfect ring that you can cherish for the rest of your life. One of the first things you need to do is learn about the shapes of a diamond. A diamond can come in a round brilliant cut, princess cut, emerald cut, oval cut, and more. Choose the cut and shape that you like best and suits you most for example, an oval cut can really flatter a slim finger. 

The next thing you need to consider is the size of the diamond or carat weight.  This factor depends entirely on your budget. Nevertheless, remember that bigger is not always better. Even small, neatly cut diamonds have the power to deliver a remarkable impact!

The third thing to consider is the quality of the diamond in your engagement ring. Pay very close attention to the quality of the diamond. The best way to determine the quality of the diamond is to look at the colour of the diamond. The diamond needs to be as colourless as possible.   Colour grading starts a ‘D’ which means the diamond is colourless and the further you go down the alphabet the more ‘yellow’ the diamond becomes.   At Lorimat they focus on diamonds with colour grading D-G.   The diamond in your engagement ring should also be free from as many inclusions as possible.  A perfect diamond clarity is internally flawless and the grading goes down the scale to heavily included. Lorimat can also help and advise on the clarity grading to choose which can also depend on the shape or cut you decide on.

Instead of visiting a jewellery shop would you prefer to try on engagement ring designs in the comfort of your own home? Lorimat are the first jewellers in Ireland to offer a ‘Home Try-On’ service for their engagement rings. You can choose 3 designs which are silver samples of engagement rings for €60.
