#AcBridalSeries: The story begins with a diamond. How to choose the perfect engagement ring

“She smiled and said with an ecstatic air:

“It shines like a little diamond”,

“What does?”

“This moment. It is round, it hangs in empty space like a little diamond; I am eternal.”

Jean-Paul Sartre, The Age of Reason

Every love story actually starts with a look. One moment, one simple moment, those few seconds when both your gaze intersects and suddenly nothing is the same. As an unknown force would blur everything around you, for you, to live there in those seconds, an eternity.

From there, in the evening, the meeting, the kiss, her perfume on your coat, all the life and hopes told – in one evening, the warm air, the positive tension between you, all are fast, one after the other, to strengthen that connection that has been created. in just a few seconds. You laughed. She laughed too, you opened a bottle on the balcony. These moments are the ones that show you that now, nothing else matters in the world, but your eyes in her eyes and your love, the feeling of a new beginning, which blossoms like a flower on the fast-forward. What is your plan for the future, what dreams do you have? Children? A dog, or a cat? How many stars can we count tonight on the sky?

When the time comes to ask the most important question of all, know that you have some help out there, so that the answer is a definite “yes”. That aid is always a diamond ring.

I can’t imagine what went through the minds of men, over the course of time when they asked, maybe even tens of thousands in the same evening, the question: “Do you want to marry me?”

Throughout history, diamond has been a lasting symbol of the strong bond that love creates between two people. Its strength, brilliance and value are as unique as the people who wear it. In pragmatic terms, the value of a diamond is evaluated on four levels, generically called the 4C – cut (cut), karat (weight) look, color and clarity. Depending on your preferences and budget, the combination of the 4 C’s (as well as the certification) can have countless iterations and possibilities. Is clarity more important than karat? Is karat more important than colour? In the end, only you can decide the combination that represents the ideal choice for the perfect engagement ring.

Still don’t feel like you have enough information about your diamond? Let’s dig deeper into the 4C. What is colour? The colour of a diamond is classified on a scale from D (colourless) to Z (light yellow), D being the most sought after. The exception to this rule is for diamonds that have a very rare or unusual colour – such as green or red. More commonly coloured diamond options include blue, yellow and pink. What is the cut? Surprisingly, it does not actually refer to its shape, but to the way in which the stone is cut to increase its radiance, either in deeper or deeper form. A well-cut diamond should have a special radiance that reflects light slightly. What is Clarity? Clarity refers to the number of tiny inclusions or imperfections, contained in a stone, visible only under a magnifying glass. What is Karat? Karat is the weight of the stone or stones chosen and is a way to measure the value of the ring you will choose. Generally, the larger the karat of a single stone, the more it will cost and the larger it will be, although a diamond with a smaller cut may appear larger than a deeper cut stone, which may weigh a lot more.

Even after considering the 4 C’s – the color, the cut, the clarity and the karat- there are still a few things you should keep in mind when choosing or dreaming with your eyes open on the engagement ring. It might help you answer a set of questions first and foremost. What kind of personality do you have? What kind of stone feels good on your hand and how big or small should it be? What do you want to feel / feel every time your gaze slips slightly towards your lucky hand? Whatever the answers, don’t be afraid, waves of joy and memorable moments await you.

 

I’m curious if you’ve been through this moment already. If not how do you imagine it? Love is love in all its forms, and those who belong to it should feel truly blessed and take advantage of the peace it offers. The question – if it hasn’t come yet, will follow. It’s the only way to say it simpler – and more poetic, through a question: “I love you, you are my life, I want to be with you always, until death separates us.”
