And when you're shopping for a diamond ring, it's also important to understand the 4Cs.
1.Clarity. All diamonds have imperfections, but the fewer blemishes your diamond has, the more valuable it is.
2.Color. Diamonds also come in hues such as red, purple, green or blue. If you're looking for a colored diamond, remember that the most valuable stones are the ones with the most saturated colors.
3.Cut. The cut of a diamond refers the way the stone has been designed to reflect the light. The radiance of a high-quality diamond is mostly a result of its cut -- so if you want sparkle and dazzle, get a diamond with an expert cut.
4.Carats. The weight of a diamond is measured in carats. Typically, the more carats, the more valuable the diamond is. However, it's possible that a small, very clear, well-cut stone could be worth more than a larger poorly cut, blemished stone.
