Diamond jewelry is the ultimate adornment for a woman or even a man. It is something which takes us beyond the realm of time. Diamond jewelry is a timeless classic adornment, which can never go out of style and will always be looked up amongst all kinds of jewelry.

In buying diamond jewelry it is important to keep some factors in mind. The diamond history, diamond shape (Diamonds come in more shapes than any other gem. Diamond jewelry with spectacular center pieces are available in round, emerald cut, heart, marquise, oval, pear, princess, radiant, and trillion. Diamonds as accents are usually found in small round shapes and baguettes. Popular earrings are usually round or princess cut, though some may come in fancier shapes),

Diamond settings (such as bar, bezel, channel, chevron, invisible, pave, and prongs), diamond carats (The unit used to measure the size and weight of loose diamonds), diamond clarity (Clarity is the clearness of a diamond. The most valued diamonds are the clearest. When shopping for a diamond, look for diamonds with grades from FL to SI2. Stones from VS1 to S2 are the best value because they are lower in price without too many inclusions.)

Diamond color (Diamonds that are colorless or near colorless are the most prized.) And diamond cut (The diamond cut determines the brilliance of the diamonds. If a diamond is poorly cut, the light is lost through the sides and bottom of the diamond and there will be no radiance)

Diamonds are more commonly found in certain shapes; baguette, emerald, heart, marquise, oval, pear, princess, radiant, round and trillion. The most popular diamond shape has been the round brilliant because people believed it to be an “ideal cut” that displayed the most brilliance and sparkle in a diamond. The design also allows it to hide flaws and imperfections. However, new technology has made other shapes just as brilliant, such as the princess cut and trilliant cut. Today, there is no such thing as an “ideal cut” when it comes to diamond jewelry.

In diamond jewelry, the diamonds are set in different kinds of settings. Some of these kinds of settings commonly used in diamond jewelry are-

- Bar: Metal bars hold the loose diamonds in a channel-like setting.

- Bezel: The metal is formed to fit around the diamond, cupping it into place.

- Channel: A row of small diamond stones are set in a groove in the diamond rings.

- Chevron: V-shaped prongs that usually hold a marquise or princess-cut diamond for solitaire style rings.

- Invisible: Diamond set in a groove without visible prongs.

- Pave: Tiny stones are embedded to look like the piece is paved with loose diamonds.

- Prong: Several prongs hold the diamonds to let light pass through without interference.

Though diamond jewelry is made of diamonds, which is one of strongest materials on earth, a hard blow can cause the diamond to chip. If proper care is taken then the diamond jewelry can last a lifetime. To clean diamond jewelry, use water and a little bit of ammonia with a gentle brush while being careful of the metal. Also keep it away from lotion, perspiration and other household cleaners. These items can dull the surface of the stones. Store your diamond jewelry separated with paper or bags, so they do not scratch or dull each other. It’s also wise to keep the diamond jewelry in its original velvet box.

Will a round diamond engagement ring go with a Baguette’s wedding band.?

My fiance got me a 1/2 caret white gold round solitaire engagement ring.
My Mother in Law wants to hand down her Gold Baguette wedding band. Will it go with my diamond or will it clash.

Are you talking about wearing them together? If so, you’ll have to see first.

Another option is that you have both rings reset into one ring–that will ensure that you have the solitaire AND the baguettes all on one ring to your specifications.

What is the weight (carat) of a baguette diamond with 4.5mm length? Also, what would be the width?

Any websites that might help?

The ratio of length and width of the baguette cut is not fixed. Most of the time it’s a compromise to retain the most weight possible. This would be influenced by the shape of the rough diamond.
So it’s hard to say what the weight would be.
If one assumes a 4.5 x 3 x 3 mm^3 baguette cut, the weight would be
about 1 carat.

Are diamond cluster engagement rings still in style?

While I love the glassy look of emerald cuts and baguettes. I’m not that crazy about diamonds to be honest. I wear lots of different color jewelry. So a color stone is out of the question.

I prefer diamonds as accents and broken up as clusters over a single larger stone. So that’s why I’m thinking a diamond cluster or eternity band. I want something elegant and classy. Any other setting suggestions?

Cluster engagement rings are certainly still in fashion but now are mostly called the right hand rings. Becuse a cluster looks more like a cocktail ring than an engagemen ring.

Currently the halo 9single or double row of diamonds outline the center diamond) look is very popular. Eternity bands have always been very elegant and timeless so if you have the choice go with an eternity.

Baguette engagement rings usually have another cut of diamond as the main stone. The baguette diamond stones are usually on the band to help the sparkle and brilliance of the ring to come forward. There are Baguette engagement rings where several baguette stones are cut and placed together to make the center stone, but this is an exception instead of the rule. This is possible because of the geometric cut. When placed side by side, there will be no gaps seen unless looked at closely.

The baguette stones that line the ring can be of any shape but are usually elongated rectangles that run down the sides of the rings. When an engagement ring is presented and baguette diamonds are present, the presenter can boast of more carats which at times can be impressive. This is lower in cost than one big diamond.

This stone cut first became popular in the early 20th century with the Art Deco and Art Nouveau movements. The geometric design of the stones gave its straight clean cut a symmetric appearance that was very fashionable. Most of the stones that are set in the baguette engagement rings are less than one carat in weight. Because of this small size most are characterized by size instead of weight. The most popular size has a length to width ratio of 1.5 to 1.0.

The baguette cut is considered a step size cut. This cut only has 14 facets on it. Because of the fewer facets, the quality and clarity of the diamond should be good or it will be noticeable.

Baguette engagement rings can be less expensive than other cuts available but it is more common to use this cut in the rings band itself to accent another type of cut for the center piece.

Let’s face facts — buying a diamond engagement ring is one of the most important purchases that you will ever make. It will set the tone for your marriage, and may be more meaningful to you than the purchase of your first home.

Not only that, but buying an engagement ring is a big investment. Simply put, you want the best value for your money and you need to deal with someone that you can trust.

What in your opinion, do you think is the proper way to wear this ring?

My Awesome Husband, bought me an absolutely Beautiful Diamond Heart Ring, with Baguettes and Round Stones, for our 18th Wedding Anniversary, this past Monday! I heard that if you are taken or attached to someone, that you wear the ring, with the point facing inward toward you and if you are unattached, you wear the ring, with the point facing outward and away from you. I was just wondering if anyone knew what the proper way to wear the ring is!? Thanks!

I’ve always heard the same thing so we must be right!
Personally, I would wear it how ever you want. It’s your ring. And congrat’s on the anniversary!

The Gemological Institute of America, popularly known as the GIA, made a great impact on the diamond industry. When they established the 4 C’s grading system for diamonds in 1931, the future success of the diamond price list became a possibility, and the 4 C’s eventually became the standard for describing diamonds worldwide. This grading system is more accepted globally than the several different grading systems used in other countries.

 

The 4 C’s refer to the Cut, Carat weight, Color, and Clarity of the diamond. Here’s a brief description of each:

 

Cut

Cut is the term that generally refers to the shape of a diamond. Today, cut no longer just refers to the shape of the diamond but also to how well the precious stone is actually cut. For example, a round shaped diamond is further critically examined as either perfectly round or somewhat off-round. Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair or Poor are the grading rates for the overall cutting workmanship of a diamond based on the cut grading scale developed by the GIA.

 

Carat Weight

The actual weight of a diamond is measured in carats. The term is derived from a kind of dry fruit that contains seeds known as a “carob”. These seeds were considered to be of common knowledge and largely understood universally. The equivalent weight of the carob seeds was then used to define the actual weight of diamonds and other precious gems. The equivalent of one carat is about .20 grams, so a 5-carat diamond weighs one gram.

 

Color

The color characteristic of diamonds refers to their perceived color or, more precisely, lack of color. The most common diamonds display a more apparent tint of yellow. These commonly found diamonds are consequently less expensive in value. The fancy color diamonds, on the other hand, are extremely rare. They are those with a very obvious yellow tint and have very expensive price tags. Other rare colors in the fancy range can be pink, blue or green to name a few.

 

Clarity

Clarity is the measurement of the lack of, or presence of, internal and external imperfections in diamonds. Also called “impurities”, a diamond’s imperfections can be visible only when using 10 power magnification. The more rare diamonds have less imperfections while the very rare diamonds are those that are flawless.

 

It is very rare to find flawless diamonds in today’s market where diamonds with imperfections visible to the naked eye are commonly found. Scientists, however, have found a way to make those imperfections become invisible to the naked eye through the process known as clarity enhancing. Using a material closely resembling a diamond, a high tech system is employed to fill the imperfections. The material also possesses the characteristics of diamond, thus, the end result is a natural diamond with the same brilliance and appeal. At almost half the price of non-enhanced diamonds, these modified diamonds are still considered 100% natural diamonds.

 

In the next article we will explore clarity enhanced diamonds in more depth as well as some of the other treatment and enhancement process on the market today.
