A Cut Above
Wednesday, Sep 22,2010
Tis' the season for giving and the season for giving rings. During the holidays many men choose to pop the question and with that question they need a rock that says it all. Ring shopping can be intimidating, so we sat down with Ricky Bromberg and Terri Moore of Bromberg's to get the scoop on how to choose the best ring.
Everyone has heard of the 4Cs, but did you know that of the 4Cs the one you should care most about is cut? A diamond's cut has the most impact on its beauty. In fact, a well cut diamond can make a stone appear 2 shades better in color. A well cut diamond will give you the most sparkle because it acts like a tiny little mirror capturing all the light.
With diamonds from Hearts on Fire, Gregg Ruth, and many more, Bromberg's has state of the art tecnology that will show you the difference between a diamond with a perfect cut and one that just doesn't make the cut.
Many times a store may emphasize carat, but when it all comes down to it, cut will define the beauty of the diamond.
When asked what is the one thing you would tell someone shopping for a diamond, Ricky Bromberg said, 'Don't sacrifice quality.' Terri Moore advises, 'This is the purchase of a lifetime make sure you get the best diamond for your money, get the most quality out of what you are buying.'
Whether Santa is bringing her that tiny little box or you plan to ring in the New Year with a proposal, it doesn't mean a thing if it doesn't have that bling. Go a rock that will have her squealing with joy.
