When we see diamond rings we always associate it with love and romance. Diamonds have always been a girl’s best friend. Women love diamonds not only because of their inherent value but also because they are so beautiful and sparkle. Diamonds come in different colors, shapes and sizes. If you want to make your loved one’s day special then diamond jewellery is the answer.

The 4Cs of diamonds which make them so popular are color, cut, clarity and carat weight. Diamonds are nature s biggest miracle. Made entirely of carbon with a hardness rating of 10 on the Mohs scale, diamonds are literally the hardest substance known to mankind. Due to their brilliance and luster, diamonds command a higher price than any other gemstone.

Carat weight is also an important factor in determining the cost of a diamond. The larger the carat the more expensive the diamond. There are many factors which affect the value of a diamond, the most important being the clarity and the rarity of the diamond. A lab diamond ring is a great way to show someone you care about them because you have the piece tested and graded for its quality.
