Selecting Diamond Carat

So how do you determine what size diamond to buy?  Do you want a diamond carat of 1, or 2, or do you want a ring with multiple, smaller stones?  The answer to this will depend greatly on your budget, as well as the person who will be wearing the ring. 

A diamond will look larger on a slender finger, so keep that in mind if the recipient of the ring has thin hands.  The actual diamond carat measurement is probably not as much of a concern as the appearance, shape, and setting of the ring.  Particularly because a 1 carat diamond ring will not look half the size of a 2 diamond carat ring, it's far more important to select a ring that is pleasing to look at than it is to buy one with the most carats you can afford.

Determine how much money you have to spend, and then decide on the cut of the diamond.  Once you have these two pieces of information narrowed down, you can start browsing the diamonds in your price range, in the style you want, and find out what diamond carat you are in the market to buy.
