About 1 Carat Engagement Ring

1 carat is a popular choice among brides owing to its balance of attractiveness and affordability. As it has been believed, 1 carat of diamond is equal to status and beauty, so buying a carat of diamond becomes a memorable experience. Thus, it should be bought carefully so the experience can be cherished for a lifetime. For that matter, if it is any other gemstone—moissanite or zircon—we need to make sure the choice isn't regretted later.

Size of 1 CT diamond

  • There is no standard size for 1 ct of gemstone; different cuts and shapes of gemstone will have different sizes. For example, a round cut is 6.5 mm x 6.5 mm, a princess cut is 5.51 mm x 5.51 mm, and an oval cut is 8.12 mm x 5.41 mm.
  • 1 CT of gemstone is big enough for an engagement ring. The size is appropriate to display its properties, like its shine and brilliance, and is also apt to be carried easily every day without being too big and becoming a hurdle in daily activities.
  • If you are buying 1 carat but you want the stone to have a bigger appearance, there are ways to maximise its appearance, either by cutting the stone with a large face up or by choosing the kind of bold, dramatic setting that can give a noticeable appearance to your stone.

4 C’s for buying 1 CT of Engagement Ring

  1. Clarity: Choose the gemstone that is eye-clean, with no visible inclusions, and has diamonds and moissanites in it SI1 and SI2 are a fair deal as compared to VSI.
  2. Color: that appears vibrant to you, and in the case of diamonds, moissanites, and zircons, that appears colorless to you, which are from grade D to F. When you think of the color of a gemstone or of a diamond, it is important to see what metal will go best with it. Every gemstone has a different color range, from low to high intensity, lighter to darker tone, colorless diamonds to visible yellow-tinted diamonds.
  3. Cut: The cut will determine the brilliance of each gemstone, and in the case of diamond, moissanite, and zircon, it is not worth your money if it doesn't have excellent fire, scintillation, and brilliance, which can come with only a fine cut. A poorly cut gemstone will only appear to be dull.
  4. Carat: The carat weight of an engagement ring typically ranges between 1 to 2 Carats. More the carat weight, higher the value of the ring.

Choosing the Setting for 1 CT

  1. Halo Setting: If you intend to maximize sparkle and make it look more fancy and dramatic on your 1 CT engagement ring.
  2. Simple Solitaire: If you want an elegant and sophisticated look with the focus on your center stone.
  3. Halo Setting: If you wish to wear the ring every day and want a secure setting for it.

In addition to this, you can choose to have diamond accents around or on the diamond shank; this will also enhance the sparkle and shine of the gemstone.
