Wedding season is right around the corner, and all the excitement may be giving you thoughts about having your own!
Your wedding will be a special day to celebrate your love and commitment to each other…and it all starts with the ring.
Shopping for the perfect diamond engagement ring takes more than just walking into any store and hoping that one catches your eye.
Mountz Jewelers has an expansive collection of impeccable, quality diamonds in every shape and size. Knowing what you are buying is half the battle, and we are here to help you with your diamond purchase every step of the way. Here’s how you can buy a diamond ring from Mountz Jewelers today:
Decide What Kind of Diamond Ring You Want
The first step in the diamond buying process is to decide what kind of ring you want.
Do you opt for a complete ring?
Do you consider a ring setting without the center diamond?
Or, do you aim to create a custom ring?
With a complete ring, you get a ring setting with a center diamond for one price. Choosing a ring without the center diamond means that you can take a look at our hundreds of available loose diamonds in our Mountz inventory to find the perfect one that catches your eye. Or if you want to give it a more unique look, you can even find a ruby or sapphire to be set. No two brides are the same just like a diamond.
Another option is to go custom; for some, creating a custom ring is the right choice when they have their heart set on a specific ring design.
When making your decision, be sure to focus on your vision and budget. When choosing a complete ring, some big retail locations may give you the price for a ring-setting that does not include the diamond in the initial quote. At Mountz Jewelers, we offer a wide selection of designer brands and diamonds to choose from, all while giving you all the facts straight and upfront.
Choose Your Diamond Shape
When it comes to finding the perfect ring, do not just look at the size of a diamond; you should also pay attention to the diamond shape.
The diamond’s shape is one of the 4 C’s (Carat Weight, Color, Clarity, and Cut) of buying a diamond. The distinction might be confusing at first, but that is why we are here to help!
The most common diamond shapes are listed below:
Square (Cushion Cut)
Rectangular (Princess, Asscher, Emerald, Radiant)
Marquise (like a Pear, but pointed on both ends)
Thankfully, you do not need to remember all these shapes, you just need to know what your future bride likes. Her diamond engagement ring should be an expression of your love and should always compliment her style.
If she usually opts for a bright, elegant style, then a round cut diamond or princess cut diamond will suit her best. Maybe your significant other wants to step out of the box? If so, consider an elongated style like the pear-shaped or marquise-shaped diamond to help her stand out from the crowd.
We have plenty of diamond shapes and cuts to fit all personal styles. If you are searching for a ring for the traditional bride, consider a round brilliant diamond in a solitaire setting. If you are on the hunt for a more sentimental, romantic piece, then a heart-shaped diamond is the ring for her. Consider her style, think about what she will cherish for years to come, and let Mountz Jewelers do the rest!
