Decide On the Cut of the DiamondDiamonds are cut in various shapes by jewelers and the price will vary quite a bit, depending on the kind of cut the diamond is sporting. Heart cuts, oval cuts, round cuts, cushion cuts, and princess cuts are probably your best options, but feel free to choose another cut if it appeals to you more or if the price goes above your budget. Remember that pear cut or marquis cut diamonds won’t be as expensive as the round cut or oval cut diamonds, so if you want a bigger stone, you may have to go for a less expensive cut.
Go With Yellow or White GoldSterling silver and platinum are good options, but a classic yellow or a more modern white gold is a better choice of metal for wedding rings because of the following reasons.
- Sterling silver and platinum look the same to the inexperienced eye, which is a letdown, given the huge difference in price
- Platinum scratches easily and it is not a durable metal that is fit for regular use jewelry such as a wedding ring
- Gold rings are more durable and less expensive than platinum rings, and they look gorgeous
- Sterling silver is just too cheap a metal for a diamond wedding ring
