Diamonds make a woman go weak in the knees. And we’re not just saying it, it’s actually true! With Valentine's Day around the corner and love in the air, it’s the perfect time to marvel at some glittering wonders and to share the post with your fiance! *wink*Choosing a diamond ring is a confusing task, but a little know-how is always good! Diamond basics lie in the four C’s - Carat, Cut, Colour and Clarity. There are broadly 10 types of diamond cuts, of which round is the most popular and expensive shape. Pear, emerald, heart, and oval-cut diamonds can bring down your cost by almost 25%. Carat is the term used to describe the weight and can range in size from a fraction of a carat to several carats. Large stones are rare and thus increasingly expensive. As far as the colour is concerned, they are graded on a scale of D-Z. D-F are colourless and most expensive. The price reduces as you go further towards the G-J (near colourless) category or K-M which have a tint of yellow. Pink and blue-coloured diamonds are extremely rare and, hence, extremely expensive. Another important factor is the clarity i.e, transparency of the diamond. The more the flaws, the lesser the price.
