Tips to Upgrade Your Diamond

Your engagement ring serves as a symbol of your commitment to your partner, the diamond, as it is the hardest material on earth, representing the strength and everlasting nature of your love. There are many reasons one might want to upgrade their center diamond, and we have a few tips on how to do just that.

Upgrade the Cut

Over time, you may find that the engagement ring you received or picked out when you were first engaged no longer fits your preference. Or, perhaps, you could not afford the diamond shape you originally wanted. Upgrade your ring by selecting a center stone of a different diamond cut. Each diamond cut uniquely reflects light with facets of varying quantities and shapes.

Upgrade the Colour

While colourless diamonds are certainly the most common in jewellery, these stones occur in nearly every colour on the spectrum. Colourless diamonds are the rarest, though, making them the most expensive. Perhaps you initially settled for a less than colourless diamond and now have the funds to afford a higher grade. You may also decide to have a vibrantly coloured diamond like pink or yellow. Whatever your preference, changing the stone's colour is an excellent option.

Upgrade the Clarity

The term clarity, when it comes to diamonds, refers to the number of flaws or inclusions on the surface of and within the diamond. While it's difficult to determine a diamond's clarity with the naked eye, professionals give each diamond a clarity grade that determines the stone's value. Upgrade your diamond to one of higher clarity for greater resale value and improved sparkle.

Upgrade the Carat

One of the most common ways to upgrade your diamond is to choose a stone of a higher carat weight. Typically, the larger the stone, the more surface area. The more surface area, the more light your diamond can reflect. When it comes to diamonds, the more shine it creates, the better. Revamp your engagement ring with an even more eye-catching center stone.
