Does a Bigger Diamond Mean a Better Diamond?

Many of us ladies would love to have a diamond ring with at least a one carat centre stone. Why? It is because marketing has drilled it into our heads that this is the benchmark size for a decent engagement ring. The unfortunate consequence of this thinking is many women end up with dull milky diamonds. Their fiancé’s have traded in cut, colour, and clarity for heavy carats.

If you can afford a big and beautiful diamond, more power to you. But if you are on a budget, opt for the well cut diamond with good colour. A diamond with fire and brilliance is much more eye catching and admired than one purchased purely for its size. It’s not how big it is, it’s how well it is cut!

Hi Fondy,

I found your website through your husband Joe's blog. I hope your festive season is going well.
I was hoping to ask a question. For my engagement ring I decided to go quality over quantity. My diamond knowledge is fairly limited but I decided to go for a Hearts on Fire diamond because of the cut. I received a much smaller diamond (.6) for the same price that some of my friends paid for not so well cut diamonds but from what I read the cut is one of the most important aspects when chosing a diamond. There is only one Hearts on Fire trader here in Melbourne Aus so I couldn't really get a true perspective of their opinion.
Was this a wise decision? I think my husband would like to know more than anyone that if it was a worthwhile investment :)
Thank you!
PS: I love the double happiness pendant.
