Things to Remember

  • Your engagement ring must be accompanied by a gemological certificate (preferably a GIA certificate) with details of 4C's. Don’t just go by jeweler’s word that it’s a genuine pink diamond ring, insist on its certificate.  Also, it should be disclosed if any enhancement technique has been used on stone, as this will reduce the price significantly.
  • Read the color description of the diamond carefully. Primary color of the diamond is the last color mentioned in the color description. Like, if it’s mentioned purple-pink, then it implies pink is the base color of diamond with hint of purple. On the other hand, pink-purple means there is lesser of pink in diamond. Secondary color affects the price significantly, so it’s very important to consider it while buying a pink diamond engagement ring.
  • Take your time while choosing the setting and metal of your pink diamond engagement ring. Setting and metal color can have a big influence on beauty of the ring. Check your pink diamond in different settings and different metals (white gold, yellow gold, platinum etc.) of your choice, before finally getting it mounted.

Online market is flooded with lots of options. However, before making online purchase, do read pros and cons of online buying.
  • Instead of buying an already mounted pink diamond engagement ring, first choose a pink diamond and then get it mounted into your choice of setting. This will enable you to check the cut, clarity and weight of diamond in better way. This will also provide you the option to create a personalize engagement ring.
