How to Select Your Perfect Ring Size?

When you are about to propose somebody, you may think of the perfect ring, the perfect diamond and the shape of it but along these, there is a tricky part where you don’t have the right size of a ring. Most of the time, people don’t know their own ring size, seems strange but it is how it is. So, you may need to ask him or her for the size and then determine what could be the perfect ring size. Here, we are going to give you some guidelines on how to select your perfect ring size. Have a look:

Well, a lot of people go to the jewelers and ask for the complementary ring sizers. Designs By Sevan also offers ring sizers. These are probably plastic rings that you can choose and ask your partner to try them on and choose the right fit. 

Make sure you want your ring to be easy on the knuckles too. Your fingers can swell and shrink throughout the day so keeping a little margin would be great. Weather, time of the day, activity level, and other factors can affect the finger size of anyone so, it is better to check out after lunch, before dinner, and in the middle of the day. Once you have got the right fit then compare the ring sizer with the metal ring and find the right match in metal rings. 

There is also a ring sizer guide where you can move the ring through different sizes until you find the perfect size. Anyone can download this ring size guide from the internet as it is mostly accurate everywhere. Women’s size can go from 3 to 9 but people usually go from 5 to 7 and the size 6 is a very common size for women. The men’s size can go from 8 to 14 but the size purchased for them is 8 to 10.5 and the size 9 is the most common size for men.

None of the techniques are perfect as everyone has a different shape of fingers so just choose the size in which you feel comfortable, not too tight or too lose and you will be fine. In case of the wrong size, many jewelry shops offer you to change within some period of time. So, maybe before you get back to your jeweler try the ring on your finger and get used to it or otherwise change it if you are not comfortable.

Females are so passionate about diamond that’s why the demand for diamond rings is much high. It is a costly gem, so you have to keep few things in mind while purchasing diamond jewelry.

  1. Real diamond

Make sure you are buying a real diamond and not its substitute. Cubic Zirconia is a commonly used substitute of diamond as it costs less than diamond jewelry.

Majority of the individuals are just familiar with round-shape diamonds but there are several other shapes as well. So, you have to make your mind about diamond shape before making any choice. Some of the commonly used shapes are oval, marquise, pear, trillion, heart, and emerald.

  1. Clarity

Clarity is another important factor that you must consider when going to purchase a diamond. If there are some inclusions in diamond, then it will reduce its sparkle that will ultimately reduce its price. Diamonds are identified and graded according to their number and types of inclusions. A high-grade diamond is the one that has least inclusions and it is more expensive than a low-grade diamond.

  1. Cut

Do check the cut in the diamond that reflects its spark. A perfectly cut diamond is more beautiful and sparkling and it possesses 58 flat surfaces. Diamonds are categorized in 4 different grade scales i.e. very good cut, excellent cut, fair & poor cut, and good cut. A higher-grade cut diamond is a good reflector of light and is more costly.

  1. Certificate

Make sure to check your jeweler’s certificate. Real diamonds possess certificates for trust and authenticity. These certificates generally include diamond quality, clarity, color, weight, validity, etc.

  1. Conflict-free

When purchasing diamond jewelry, you should ask about the source of diamond and its legitimacy. The conflict-free diamonds are the best one to buy for your custom engagement ring.

So, finding the best among them is much difficult. If you are looking for a trustworthy store for diamond jewelry then nothing to worry as we will help you make the right selection. Here we are going to share 5 tips that you should keep in mind while finding a diamond jewelry store.

1.Ensure the availability of stock
Most of the diamond stores don’t actually have the diamonds which they are selling. They usually buy the diamonds when an order is placed. So, you have to ensure that your diamond store actually has the diamond jewelry which you want to buy. No matter, whether you are buying a custom engagement ring or a necklace, you must ensure that the diamonds are available in the store and fully vetted.

It is always advisable to do a little research when you are going to select a diamond jewelry store. Look for their testimonials or customers’ reviews before taking any final decision. A positive client’s review can ensure the reliability of a store.

4.Experience
A well-experienced jeweler is the one who knows about the ins and outs of a business. Never rely on a newcomer when you are going to invest a big sum of money on diamond jewelry. Make sure to select a well-experienced store for your custom engagement ring.

5.GIA certified
Diamonds must be certified with GIA (Gemological Institute of America). Don’t buy any diamond jewelry that is not GIA certified. Design by Sevan always proposes diamonds that are certified by GIA.

6.Meets deadlines
If you have a certain deadline for your jewelry, then make sure to convey it to your jeweler. Do ask your jeweler that whether they are able to meet the deadlines or not.

What is a GIA Certificate?

GIA is a non-profit organization which is an independent entity. GIA conducts extensive research on gems, maintains the quality standards for gems and educates the gem professionals and jewelers. Their basic function is to grade the diamond quality. If a person has been to the shopping of a diamond, then he or she would know that there are 4C’s of GIA. These 4C’s include clarity, color, cut, and carat weight of gems. GIA has maintained different scientific techniques to measure all of these 4C’s and grading terminology.

One thing must be noted that the GIA does not commercially sell, buy or trade diamonds and they don’t mine diamonds. The GIA organization also doesn’t appreciate diamond pricing or its value in any way. Their goal is to just grade them and evaluate their quality on an objective level.

Once you go for buying a diamond, you should go for the GIA graded diamonds and you must know the quality of these diamonds along with the GIA report that comes along with these diamonds. Not all diamonds are GIA graded, although some people would say that they are tested for quality but don’t believe them and ask them to see the GIA report. The GIA reports contain a specific number for each GIA graded diamond which is also inscribed at the diamond somewhere. This unique number is in the GIA’s online global report database and you can check for further details.

GIA doesn’t certify any gems or diamonds as it only grades them. But commonly used words for GIA graded diamonds are “GIA certified or GIA cert”. They just evaluate diamonds and grade them based on 4C and write up a report on the results. The pricing and value of any diamond are further done among jewelers.  

The GIA maintains their objectivity by ensuring anonymity. When a diamond has arrived at their lab, it is then placed in a transparent box and all the reference details are removed from it. Only a bar code is allotted to every box and it is used to track all the process. The diamond inside the box is tested through different scientific methods and cleared for its authenticity. The whole process is done impartially. During the procedural testing, the tests reveal that what type of treatment has been performed on this diamond.

The GIA grading reports give confidence to the buyer and the jeweler as well. It shows that the diamond is authentic, and this certification can be used for insurance.

Components to Know While Building Your Engagement Ring

An engagement ring is the real epitome of your feeling to someone and it must depict your true feelings towards that person. You will be very please to know that Designs By Sevan offers you a custom engagement ring which suits your feelings. The company believes that the perfect ring of your dreams does not exist unless you design it yourself for someone very special. Sevan has been in the business of jewelry making for 30 years and it defines their excellence through the years. Although you have to select the base metal, stone, design, size, and budget for any engagement ring but there are some existing components. Let’s have a look at them:

Mounting: Usually, it is a quicker choice as it comes as the metal framework with the head, channels, and shank. People use their own choice of stones in these semi mounted rings.

Shank: The shank is the circular part of a ring which goes onto the finger. This could be built from any metal. If you want it to be made in a specific metal, then you can ask your jeweler to do that.

Head: The upper part of the mounting that practically holds the central stone is known as the head. The head could be in prongs or bezel shaped depending on the weight and size of the center stone. You can choose the same metal for the head as the shank or you can try on a different metal.

Prongs: The prongs actually support the stones, but six-pronged custom engagement rings Toronto may not be showing off your diamond properly, but a four-pronged engagement ring will definitely do.

Bezel: In the bezel styled custom made engagement rings, the central stone is pushed by a thin layer of metal around the stone. It protects the edges but also reduces the brightness.

Channel setting: The channel setting allows the stones to be put together edge to edge without any protective metal over them. It is common in diamond melee.

Halo: In this design, the central diamond is covered by many small diamonds which makes it look bigger.

Bead: In the bead style of a ring, the stones are put in the drilled holes of a mounted framework of an engagement ring and the mounted head metal support and push and hold the stone at their place. 

Pave setting: In this design, many small diamonds are put on in a honeycomb pattern in the drilled holes of a mounted engagement ring.
