A diamond engagement ring is one of the most important – and often one of the largest – purchases you will make in your life so you will want to be sure you do it right. It’s important to understand what the 4 primary characteristics (known as the 4C’S: cut, color, clarity, carat) are when you’re searching for the perfect ring.
