“How To Select a Beautiful Diamond Ring and save $1000′s!”

Hello diamond ring seeker! Welcome to our site. Our goal is to help people buy diamond rings by providing information about choosing the best diamonds and pointing you in the direction of the best stores to buy from. Don’t worry, we’ve done all the searching online for diamond stores so that you don’t have to go crazy finding the best stores.

Here are the results of my searching:  If you want to buy a diamond ring online, there are two stores that stand out above the rest:

  • James Allen – My #1 recommendation.
  • Blue Nile – The largest online jewelry retailer and Forbes’ Favorite Online Jeweler.

Why are they the best stores for diamond rings and engagement rings? You can read my full review for James Allen here and my full review of Blue Nile here, but here’s a quick summary:

  • They have great prices (consistently $1,000 or more below brick and mortar jewelry store prices!).
  • They have great selection. Blue Nile has the biggest selection out there (80,000+ diamonds to choose from!).
  • James Allen has real pictures of every diamond in stock.
  • They both have diamond grading reports for all their diamonds.
  • They have great reputations (both rated A+ from the BBB).

That’s pretty much it! Go ahead and look around Blue Nile and James Allen… I promise you will find what you’re looking for!

Why Isn’t There a Social Engagement Ring Shop?

So, here’s something that I’ve been think about lately…

Why isn’t there a social engagement ring shop? Why hasn’t social media “reached” engagement rings yet? Sure, you can Pin rings on Pinterest, Tweet about them, or post them on Facebook, but there is no social media site that is based around engagement rings. Well, that’s what I thought, at least, until I came across Engagement Ring Wall.

It’s a social engagement ring shop that posts engagement rings from popular retailers and allows people to view, comment, and rate rings. It’s one of those “Why didn’t I think of that?” ideas and I think it’s really cool. They just launched so it’s pretty early stage, but I can definitely see it going somewhere fast.

Also, the other cool thing about it (and, again, one of those “Why didn’t I think of that” things) is that it aggregates engagement rings from all sources. So, you can browse rings from many sites all in the same place, and the interface is pretty nifty.

Here’s what it looks like:

Check it out — it’s really cool.

Hope you find it useful and, as always, happy ring hunting!

[Diamonds For $5,000] 1.02 Carat Radiant Diamond, Ideal Cut VVS2

Radiant Cut Diamond

Carats: 1.01

Cut: Ideal

Clarity: VVS2

Color: G

Price: $5,020

Estimated Savings: $3,000+

Here’s a unique diamond if you’re in the $5,000 range for your diamond. It’s a radiant cut, which is a less common diamond shape. It’s cut quality is graded “Ideal” which is the most important factor for a diamond.

The clarity is VVS2 and if you inspect the diamond for inclusions, you can’t easily see any with the naked eye (so why pay for a better grade? — see below). The color is G, which is a great color rating because it doesn’t come with the premium that a perfect or near-perfect grade does, but it isn’t low enough that the diamond is very visibly colored.

Estimated Savings

If you were to get a diamond with near-perfect or perfect color and clarity grades, you would have to spend at least $8,000, and easily $10,000 or more. This diamond, at $5,020, is a savings of at least $3,000! It’s an excellent value.

[Diamonds For $5,000] 1.01 Carat Asscher Cut Diamond

Asscher Cut Diamond

Carats: 1.01

Cut: Ideal

Clarity: VS1

Color: F

Price:$4,820

Estimated Savings: $4,000

This is an excellent value for an Asscher cut diamond in the $5,000 range. If this is close to your budget, and you want an Asscher cut diamond, this is an ideal diamond for you.

The cut is graded “Ideal”, which is the most important factor for a diamond. At 1.01 carats, it’s a good size. If you look closely, you can see a tiny inclusion near the center of this diamond. Remember that this image has been magnified, though, so at normal size, it won’t be highly visible. The F color is almost a perfect rating – it’s good enough to look completely colorless to the naked eye, but not perfect enough to demand a premium price.

Estimated Savings Breakdown

As mentioned above, the color and clarity attributes to this diamond are not perfect grade-wise, but they’re good enough to look almost perfect. If you actually bought a diamond with perfect or near perfect color and clarity grades, you would have to spend at least $9,000. That means that this diamond is an exceptional value at $4,000 less than a diamond with near perfect attributes that aren’t even necessary.
