When buying a diamond ring, it's important to know what you're actually getting. Many buyers purchase a diamond ring only once in life and therefore – understandably – don't have a lot of knowledge about diamonds.
The best first step when buying a diamond ring is always to inform yourself about. Here's a little info starter pack with everything you'll need to know:

But also with all the information you need, you'll still want to know how much you're actually paying for what.
Often times, diamond rings are sold "ready-made", meaning that a diamond is already mounted into a setting. The offered price is final and for the complete ring.
The disadvantages of that?
- You wouldn't know for sure how much you're paying for the diamond and how much you're paying for the ring itself.
- You wouldn't be able to play with your budget, e.g. by choosing slightly lower quality but therefore getting a bigger diamond at the same price.
Chose a jeweler where you can select setting and diamond separately. This means that first, you'll choose your favorite ring design (in white, pink or yellow gold) and then add the diamond of your dreams. Like this, you can
- enjoy full pricing transparency
- play with your options and find the diamond ring that matches both your expectations and budget
