One of the best </p><p>ways to let someone know how </p><p>much you care about them. Before </p><p>you make your final selection, </p><p>however, here are a few things you </p><p>need to know about buying a </p><p>diamond engagement ring. </p><p>A SYMBOL OF LOVE</p></li><li><p>Some people will tell you theres a </p><p>right amount to spend on a </p><p>diamond engagement ring. Many will </p><p>tell you to spend anywhere from one </p><p>to three months salary. Dont listen </p><p>to these rules the right amount </p><p>to spend is whatever you can afford </p><p>and feel comfortable spending. </p><p>THERE S NO RIGHT </p><p>AMOUNT TO SPEND</p></li><li><p>One important thing to remember is that youre not buying an engagement ring for </p><p>yourself. While most brides will gladly tell you they love their engagement ring, more </p><p>than half also admit that what they got wasnt exactly what they wanted.1 Keep in </p><p>mind what your partners taste is, and use it to guide your decisions. </p><p>YOUR </p><p>PARTNER S </p><p>TASTE </p><p>MATTERS</p></li><li><p>While the traditional image of marriage </p><p>proposals is the groom-to-be surprising </p><p>his intended with a ring he bought </p><p>himself, the truth is that many brides </p><p>help shop for their own engagement </p><p>rings. 31% of brides helped pick their </p><p>ring, and 34% said they were somewhat </p><p>involved with the decision.1 </p><p>YOU DON T HAVE TO </p><p>DO IT ALONE</p></li><li><p>If you dont want your </p><p>intended to come along, you </p><p>can also bring a friend or family </p><p>member to be a sounding </p><p>board. It might be particularly </p><p>helpful to bring along someone </p><p>who knows the other party and </p><p>their tastes so they can offer </p><p>insight into what theyll think. </p><p>BRING A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER</p></li><li><p>Most people dont know their partners </p><p>ring size off the top of their head, but </p><p>the good news is that theres an easy </p><p>way to get the size of your engagement </p><p>ring right the first time. When </p><p>shopping, bring one of your partners </p><p>regularly-worn rings along with you. </p><p>The jeweler can use it as a sizing guide. </p><p>IT S BETTER TO GET THE SIZE</p><p>RIGHT THE FIRST TIME</p></li><li><p>The quality of a </p><p>diamond is determined </p><p>by the four Cs: cut, </p><p>color, carat, and clarity. </p><p>Dont let a salesperson </p><p>sell you on a diamond </p><p>by its carat weight alone </p><p> do a little research on </p><p>what the other three Cs </p><p>really mean, and ask </p><p>about those as well. </p><p>REMEMBER THE 4 C S</p></li><li><p>Carat, clarity, cut, and color arent just numbers that are made up by the jeweler </p><p>every commercial diamond is inspected by a gemologist, and has an official report </p><p>written about it. Before you take a salespersons word, ask to see the report on </p><p>any diamond youre thinking of buying. </p><p>REQUEST </p><p>CERTIFICATION</p></li><li><p>The Diamond Vault has been
