The Diamond For You
Not all diamonds are created equal. When choosing a diamond for your custom engagement ring, there are many factors at play. Deciding and prioritizing your wishes for your ring is important to establish beforehand, as it will guide the ring design. Cut, color, clarity, and carat are all key components to consider when selecting a diamond. A smaller diamond that’s priced the same as a larger diamond will be higher quality and showcase a brighter rainbow of colors. Larger diamonds are stunning from a distance but more likely to have microscopic flaws that alter their clarity and may have an undesirable color despite being a higher carat weight. Finding the right balance between quality and size will ultimately depend on your budget and your priorities, but keep in mind, there is no wrong diamond!

The Setting Style
Aside from the actual diamond, choosing and designing a setting style is where the real fun begins when creating a custom engagement ring. Bezel style, halo settings, simple solitaire rings, and split shank bands can all take a round brilliant diamond and turn it into a work of art. Your band may be filigree, pave, channel, or flat, among others. The ring and the diamond inform each other; when choosing a diamond, make sure it will work in the style of setting you want, and vice versa. Your local jeweler can help you make an informed decision and walk through possible designs for your custom band before starting design sessions. At Barthau in the Stouffville area, we have experienced professionals to help you choose what makes the most sense for you, your style, and your diamond.
