Find your perfect diamond. 

How to get the most out of your R30 000 budget;

Your engagement ring design and choice of center diamond should be complimentary all round… the good old 2+2 =5. 

Engagement rings simply look nicer when setting with a larger center diamond, and your best approach from the get-go is to consider the engagement ring in its totality.

Pro-Tip; You can increase the perceived size of your diamond by choosing a halo-style setting. They work miracles.

If you’re after a solitaire design prioritise size and ensure your diamond is at least 0,60ct…  preferably over 0,70ct in weight. 

3 simple parameters to ensure you get the largest diamond for your money - without any visual compromises; 

  • Diamond colors H-I-J-K appear white and offer tremendous value.
  • Clarity; It’s as simple as ensuring there are no visible flaws in your diamond when viewed with the naked eye. Try to stick to VS2 and better.
  • Cut: Don’t compromise on the quality of the craftsmanship. Only excellent and Very Good will do. 

Then maximize size until you reach your budget ceiling.
