In today’s world, engagement rings have come to mean a lot of things. They are symbols of love and commitment; they are the jumping off point to a life of adventure together for a couple; they are a reminder of the magic moment when a couple made the watershed decision to move toward a life bound by marriage.
Choosing an engagement ring is a big and incredibly important decision to make, and, let’s face it, it can be an intimidating one.
Often times, partners will have discussed general ideas for what the ring could or should look like, but the final decision usually comes down to one person, and that person wants to get it right.
There are many choices of places to go when choosing this incredibly important piece of jewelry in a city like Toronto. At Adamar Diamonds, we offer a unique and professional experience unmatched anywhere else.
We understand that every relationship is different and we pride ourselves in going above and beyond to help people find the right engagement ring for their unique relationship.
To make things a little easier, we thought we’d come up with some basic information for all the things you need to think about when considering which engagement ring is right for you.
Let’s start with the scenario that you have decided you are going to marry your partner. Maybe you knew the moment you met, maybe it was something you came to realize over time.
Love and relationships take many forms and however you got to this point is special and unique, and your engagement ring should reflect that.
The crowning jewel of most engagement rings is the unrivaled, incomparable diamond. While some people explore other gemstones to be the focal point of an engagement ring, the diamond engagement ring still reigns supreme.
The Four C’s Of Diamonds
There are several things to consider when choosing which diamond you want to have front and centre of your engagement ring.
You might have heard of the four C’s of diamonds before — they stand for cut, colour, clarity and carat, and they are the categories that allow diamond specialists to sort through and help find which diamond is right for you.

Before we get to those, we should mention that while the four C’s are the most commonly known traits of a diamond, there are a myriad of other intricacies that go into determining the value of the stone.
Adamar Diamond professionals are highly trained to navigate and explain to our customers some of the more nuanced qualities of the diamond, which can account for differences in value and price.
Since each person has different preferences when it comes to diamonds, considering the details of the diamond, including each of the four C’s, will help determine which unique stone will be featured in your engagement ring.
They say that no two diamonds are the same, so narrowing down this choice can be made easier by determining which of the four C’s you or your partner cares most about.
For example, some people prefer a traditional clear diamond that sparkles when it catches the light, thereby placing more importance on the clarity of the diamond.
The cut will also have an effect on how much a diamond catches the light and they can be considered in conjunction with one another.
Some people instead have an idea of exactly which shape of diamond they want, and trends in cut change over time. There are many cuts to choose from and some more familiar ones include round, radiant or princess for example.
Others still are looking for a diamond that stands out and would place more importance or value on having a uniquely coloured diamond, like yellow or pink.
While white diamonds are still and probably always will be the most popular choice, we’ve seen an increase in demand for coloured diamonds over the years.
Finally, some people focus on size, the bigger the better as they say, and therefore the majority of the budget will be spent on the diamond’s weight, or carat.
Once the general cut, colour, clarity and carat of the diamond is decided upon, there are other details about your ring to consider, like the setting in which the diamond sits, and the embellishments or smaller complimentary diamonds that might accompany it.
There is also the band to think about, like whether you want yellow, white or rose gold, or perhaps you prefer platinum instead.
