Omaha has a lot of great places to find engagement rings, but here’s a few things to keep in mind when you start looking.
Remember the four C’s: Cut, Color, Clarity and Carats. If you’re not familiar with diamonds, these four topics can be conversations starters with your jeweler to determine what you want. So when your jeweler asks you what you’re looking for, you know what they’re talking about (the four C’s).
Don’t be swayed by trends. The princess cut or the brilliant round cut may be at the top of the popularity charts, but maybe you want something different. Maybe you want an emerald cut or an asscher cut instead. Choosing a ring is a very personal thing and you want it to represent the love you and your significant other share.
Personalize your ring. The band doesn’t have to be white or gold and the diamond doesn’t have to be white
Depending on what kind of diamond you get and what kind of cut you prefer, it will make a difference in the clarity of the stone.
The Carat Weight:
The size of the rock is a huge dictator as to the size of your bill. For an average person, the engagement ring is a little less than one carat — but don’t let that determine how many carats you want. You’ll still want to pick something that fits your budget.
The most important thing to think about when choosing an engagement ring or wedding band is to make it your own. Engrave the band with a name, date, symbol or special message. You may even choose a unique setting. No one gets to wear your ring except for you, so pick something that has you written all over it — remember, and engagement ring symbolizes your true and everlasting love.
