Many say that 1 carat or 2 carat diamond is the ideal diamond for engagement rings. However, not all people think the same. For those who think size does really matter, 1 carat or 2 carat diamond is still too small to show off the fire and the brilliance it possesses. Thus, if you are one of those people, you need to think about purchasing a diamond engagement ring with carat size of the diamond is above 2, let’s say 6 carat diamond engagement ring. But, your task is not over yet. Carat is not the only one you should consider when purchasing a diamond engagement ring.

The first thing you should know is, carat size, which is the easiest C to understand from 4C’s of diamond, refers to the weight of the diamond. One carat equal to 200 mg, which means 6 carat diamond, is about 1.2 g. Even if it is true that the carat size is related to the size of the diamond, it does not mean that the 6 carat diamond will be exactly six times bigger than 1 carat diamond. The cut of the diamond also plays an important role here. 6 carat round diamond will be 11.7 mm in diameter. However, fancy diamonds such as marquise, pear, and emerald will be bigger than round diamond. Thus, if the reason you choose 6 carat diamond engagement ring is to have a bigger diamond, you may want to choose 6 carat fancy diamond engagement ring, since the diamond will be bigger, giving it appearance of bigger carat size as well. 6 Carat Diamond Engagement Ring

How well the diamond is cut also plays important role in determining the size of the diamond. If the diamond has a shallow cut or often called spread cut, the diamond will be look larger than a well-cut diamond in the same weight, since the diameter will be larger. It may be good for the size, but shallow cut diamond lacks brilliance, and very often has a glassy and lifeless look. Meanwhile, if the cut is too deep, the diamond will look smaller than a well cut diamond, since the diameter will be smaller. It means you pay extra, since you pay for a 6 carat diamond, but the size is not like a common 6 carat diamond. And the diamond will lack in brilliance and fire as well and tends to be dull and dark in the centre. You do not want a 6 carat diamond engagement ring only, but a 6 carat diamond with a very good cut, so look for a 6 carat diamond with a very good cut and good proportions. 6 Carat Diamond Engagement Ring

You need to consider the clarity and the colour of the diamond as well, since if these factors you neglect, the 6 carat diamond you choose may not as beauty as it supposed to be. Search for a 6 carat diamond with a good clarity, meaning, the diamond looks clear without any signs of flaws and inclusions. It should not really a diamond with no flaws and inclusions at all, since you can bet that there is almost no diamond without flaw. As long as you cannot detect the flaw and the inclusions, it is diamond with the best clarity. When you decide on the colour, search for a diamond with even colour, since uneven colour will make the diamond lacks fire and brilliance in spots where the colour is uneven. 6 Carat Diamond Engagement Ring
