If you are getting ready to go shopping for a diamond engagement ring that will make her eyes fill with tears and cause her to fall even more deeply in love with you than she already is, there are a few things you may want to keep in mind. Diamonds, like people, offer different qualities with each stone. In order to get a diamond that she will love, think about what would best fit her personality.

While keeping her personality in mind, you also want to pay attention to the four C's: color, cut, clarity and carat. Diamonds come in a variety of colors, so know her preference. Next, look at the cut of the stones. There are seven different styles to choose from including: round, pear, heart, oval, marquise, emerald and princess. After you have the color and cut, look at the clarity of the diamonds and choose one that is as pristine as possible. Keep in mind that only the most expensive diamonds are without flaws, but you should be able to find one that is very clear. The last thing to decide on the ring is the carat size.
