  • Shape of setting and shank: The various collections of My Diamond Ring are inspired by some of the world's most beautiful cities and each have a distinctive design. Additionally to a 360° macro, the product view shows you a detailed design sketch for each model.
  • Diamond shape: Most designs are available with center stones of various cuts. If you already know what diamond shape you'd like to go for, click this link and choose your desired cut in order to see an overview of rings available for this shape.
  • Pure or pavé shank: The ring's shank is the part that wraps around the finger. It can either be left pure or "paved" with small diamonds to add an extra sparkle to the ring. Furthermore, there are some designs that feature side stones: These are a bit bigger compared to pavé stones.
  • Halo: A halo is a delicate ring of diamonds encircling the center stone. My Diamond Ring offers rings without, with one or even two halos.

2. Choose a diamond

In the product view, you can already try out how your ring will look in different shades of gold and with diamonds of various sizes. However, in the next step, you can freely choose your diamond: Only the diamond shape is already predestined by the setting you have chosen priorly.

Besides the cut, there are three more central criteria: The carat weight, color, and clarity. These characteristics are calle the "4C" and define not only the quality but with it also the price of a diamond.

As well as in the overview as in the detail pages showing the available diamonds, letters and numbers signify the diamonds' quality:

  • CT is short for carat. This number provides information on the weight of a diamond: One carat equals 0.2 grams. While carat is not a direct measure for size, it surely provides information on how big a diamond is.
  • D - Z: The color of a diamond is measured on a scale from D to Z. D means that the stone is perfectly colorless. Diamonds at the other end of the scale have a visible yellowish tint.
  • F, IF, VVS, VS, SI, I: These abbreviations give information on the diamond's clarity. While no stone is absolutely perfect, such diamonds with the clarity grade F have no visible inclusions. Such with a lower clarity grade show tiny pieces of carbon that have not been turned into diamond.

By clicking on the GIA logo, you can see each diamond's certificate, which provides more detailed information on the quality. Here, also the cut grade is stated: While cut means the shape of a diamond, the cut grade measures how well it was cut: The cut quality is crucial for the stone's brilliance.

A diamond certification, best by the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) is absolutely necessary: It is the only way to be sure that a diamond has been traded ethically and under the conditions of the Kimberley Agreement. My Diamond Ring exclusively offers GIA certified diamonds.
