The Beauty of a 2 Carat Engagement Ring

We can argue that size does not matter all the time while some would counter that it does. For others, it may depend on the budget or the availability of gem quality diamonds. 

There are many things to consider in choosing the right ring for your engagement. In general, we can refer to the 4Cs of gem quality stones that are—color, clarity, cut, and carat. These determine the grade of gemstones, be it a diamond or other precious stones. We can draw that the higher the grade, the higher the cost. Hence there are a lot of ways we can go about considering what kind of engagement ring to choose. Prioritizing a few, if not all, of the 4Cs can make a huge difference. Ultimately, it is really a matter of personal taste. 

It all depends on your preference. So, whether you are someone who wants it big or someone who wants to give something big, we say why not choose something as big as a 2 Carat engagement ring?

Get noticed with a larger, more visible stone. When it comes to higher carat weight, people won’t be able to help it but look.

Flaunt your engagement with a 2 Carat diamond ring!

How Big It Really Is

The average size of an engagement ring varies depending on the country. At an average, it is somewhere between 0.5 carat to 1 carat or even hovering around 1.08 to 1.2 carats.

The dimensions vary depending on the cut. Face-up, every 2-carat diamond looks different between different cuts. Looking at round, pear, marquise, oval, princess, baguette, emerald, asscher, or those other fancy cuts, as long as it is at the center, it will surely be a stunner. 

All these things said, a two-carat diamond somewhat covers a good portion of your ring finger. It won’t go amiss.

But other qualities such as the variation of depth or girdle thickness and rate of cuts add to the impression as well.  From poor to excellent cuts, and shallow to deep depths, visually, the size of a 2-carat diamond stone is affected by the way it refracts light displaying an attractive fire or brilliance.

Additionally, there are other elements that you should also know that contribute to how large a diamond appears to be. 

Thinner Bands: opt for a thin metal band. This will automatically make your diamond stand out no matter the size.
Fewer Prongs: a minimum of 4-8 prongs is a good choice. This helps increase the brilliance making the diamond more visible.

Shiny metals: choosing shiny metals like platinum or white gold reduces the contrast. This helps reflect light by enhancing the brilliance of the diamond. 

A different cut: you may prefer shallow cuts for more surface area that makes a diamond look larger face up.

Surround your stone: if you have no cap in your budget, surround your diamond with a halo of smaller diamonds. This brings out your center stone appear much larger

This is where a visit to the showroom or a virtual tour may come in handy. It may not be an easy decision to make. Selecting the perfect engagement ring takes careful consideration and deliberation of the aforementioned qualities. Take time to browse.

How Much It Costs

The same 2 carat diamond engagement ring does not always mean they are similar in price. Factors such as the source, if it is a natural diamond or a lab grown diamond, the quality of color and clarity, if it has inclusions or other visible marks, and cut which affects how well it reflects light and show flare contribute to the overall grade of any 2 carat diamond ring. 

With the help of a gemologist certified by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), each diamond is assessed based on standards recognized globally. A grading scale for each characteristic serves as the universal measure by which all gem experts refer to. The grade for each of these qualities are considered by the expert during appraisal and determines the worth of a diamond.
