4 Things to Know Before Purchasing an Engagement Ring

If you have no clue on what you should be looking out for when buying an engagement ring, this list will help you get started!

1. The 4 C's

Cut, color, clarity, and carat.

When it comes to the cut of the ring, it doesn't actually refer to the shape or size of the stone but rather the angles and proportions. There are 2 factors to a well-cut diamond; mirror-like facets and white light. Both factors are crucial to consider if you want your engagement ring to shine bright! The color of a diamond is one of the determinations on how expensive the ring can get. The closer the diamond is to being colorless, the more valuable and pricey it can be. There is a scale from D (colorless) to Z (yellow light) that a buyer can choose from so make sure to ask your jeweler on your options! The clarity of the stone refers to how clear the diamond is. The price of the diamond can vary depending on the level and type of inclusions present. As for carats, this refers to the weight of the diamond. As you've probably guessed, the increase in carat sizes also means the increase in price tag... But keep this in mind! Just because you got a bigger carat it doesn't necessarily mean that the diamond will be big. Depending on the design and mounting of the stone, the actual shape of it might differ.

2. What Metal?

The metal for the band of the ring is also a crucial aspect to consider when buying an engagement ring. There are a wide variety of metals to chose from, but among those the most popular ones are gold, platinum, palladium, and silver. Platinum is known to be the most durable and pure, as well as hypoallergenic which is great for people with sensitive skins. If color is something that is important, gold can come in as yellow, white, or rose.

3. It Can Take Some Time

Ideally, receiving your ring can take up to 6-8 weeks, depending on what type of engagement ring it is and how you customized it. Of course, the more customization there is in the order, the longer it would take. So make sure not to time the arrival of the engagement ring and the proposal so closely together! Moreover, any customization on the ring should be said before making the order.

4. Make Sure to Have a Budget

Buying an engagement ring for your loved ones can feel like a lot of pressure without a budget. Once you have set a realistic budget for your spending, then buying a ring can turn out to be much easier and fun. There are many ways to get your loved ones the perfect ring without emptying your pocket. So set a budget, inform the jeweler on the budget, and then you'll be ready to start looking!

One of Biggest Diamonds in History Found in Lesotho Mine

Recently, one of the biggest diamonds in history has been discovered in Lesotho, mountainous kingdom of Southern Africa. The size of this exclusive 910-carat stone equals to two golf balls, which is very unusual and rare find. It’s a D color Type IIa diamond, which means it has very few or no nitrogen atoms and is one of the most expensive stones. The Letseng mine is very famous for the size and quality of the diamonds it produces and has the average selling price in the world.

The diamond is the fifth-biggest ever found.  The biggest diamond discovered is the 3,106-carat Cullinan, found near Pretoria, in South Africa, in 1905. Lucara’s 1,109-carat Lesedi La Rona is the second-biggest, with the 995-carat Excelsior and 969-carat Star of Sierra Leone the third- and fourth-largest.

$6 Million Yellow Diamonds ‘Millionnaire’ Watch by Jacob & Co.

Jacob & Co., a privately held jewelry and wristwatch retailer founded in 1986 by diamond designer Jacob Arabo, has recently unveiled its newest "Millionnaire Yellow Diamonds" watch, which retails for $6 million. In 2015, the "Billionaire" watch was released, with 260 carats of diamonds retailing for $18 million!

To give some details on this timepiece, the complete case of the watch, lugs and entire bracelet is thoroughly set with 127.45 carats of square Emerald-cut certified Intense yellow diamonds. The case is set with 54 emerald-cut diamonds, and the crown is set with a single rose-cut yellow diamond. In total, the watch case is adorned with 31.74 carats. The dial of the watch features 11 baguette-cut yellow diamonds, and the 18-karat yellow gold bracelet is set with 210 emerald-cut yellow diamonds weighing another 95.71 carats. In total, this new watch contains 276  yellow diamonds. It is also crafted of 18-karat yellow gold to further enhance the yellow diamonds.

It wasn't easy to make this watch, though. It took Jacob & Co. two years to collect all of the diamonds for this piece, with the main challenge being finding enough yellow diamonds with the same color and quality: intense yellow. Since it took such a long amount of time to find all of the perfectly matched diamonds and immense amount of work that goes into the setting of the stones, this is a one-of-a-kind watch.

The mechanism of the watch is an exclusive Jacob & Co.  skeletonized manual wind caliber (JCAM23). Each of the 197 individual components is hand finished and polished, and each is reduced to the barest minimum of metal possible without compromising the part's strength and durability.

"In my mind, the buyer of the Millionnaire is someone who can buy almost any watch or piece of jewelry they want, but are looking for a piece that is daring and unique -- yet still timeless," says Jacob Arabo. "It's not the type of watch that someone wears everyday, so I imagine the buyer as a collector, who appreciates the artistry and attention of detail put into the piece."
