Diamond Wedding Rings For Men
Diamond wedding rings are no longer only for women. Many grooms today opt to invest in a man's diamond wedding band to complement the bride's. Still others enjoy the social status that is included with wearing a diamond wedding band. Buying a diamond wedding ring ensures that the groom must consider not only the material and model of the ring, but the excellence of the diamonds.
Although often not thought to be as essential as the diamonds in the bride's engagement and wedding rings, the groom's diamonds also need to be purchased properly. The person should use the same "4 Cs" into consideration:
A carat is exactly 200 milligrams. Most bands will instead have several smaller diamonds that may of may not equal one full carat. A complete carat is also equal to 100 points, so a jeweler may refer to a ring as having several 10 point diamonds (all of which could be equivalent to one tenth of the carat).
While the clarity of your diamond is usually considered the very least important in the 4 Cs, it is actually still an important consideration in your diamond purchase. The clarity of any diamond measures the number and extent in the flaws in the diamond. For the most part, a far more valuable diamond may have fewer flaws. It is quite rare that you can find a completely flawless diamond only a couple hundred "FL" diamonds are produced annually. Although there are many grading systems employed to determine a diamond's clarity, the Gemological Institute of America's (GIA) score is certainly the most in-demand. It ranks diamonds as Flawless (FL), Internally Flawless (IF), Very Very Slightly Included (VVS), Very Slightly Included (VS), Slightly Included (SI), and Included (I). (Note: 'inclusions' are slightcracks and specks, or other flaws within a diamond). These ranks are not subjective the scale has extremely specific criteria that are used to differentiate involving the grades.
