Tips on How To Make Your Diamond Appear Larger

Posted in Diamond Jewellery by La Vivion on 21st July, 2014

Diamonds come in many different sizes and a small diamond can be just as beautifully crafted and exceptional to behold as a large diamond, having said this, the size of a diamond ring is what we tend to notice first. The diamond’s carat ultimately affects the size of a diamond which is then associated with prestigious quality and exquisite design, but, this can be achieved with a smaller sized diamond meaning anyone can wear a diamond with a breath-taking effect.

How Do You Make A Diamond Ring Appear Larger?

Studies have shown that “a single three-carat diamond ring costs more than triple the price of a trio of one carat rings”* and this is down to the ring’s size. Specialist jewellers have many tips on how to make your diamond ring appear larger, these include:

  • The Clarity of your diamond. A sparkling, glittering diamond ring is much more eye catching than a cloudy diamond and also appears larger. The key to this is to choose a diamond with as few inclusions as possible showcasing a flawless finish.
  • The Shape of your diamond. Elongated shapes tend to look larger than rounder diamonds - consider a pear or oval cut.
  • The setting. How you set your diamond is key to its size. A recommended setting is the Bezel setting; this is a special band of metal that fully surrounds the diamond increasing its size.
  • Choose the right metal. If you choose white gold or platinum as your Bezel setting then the metal will blend with the gemstone perfectly creating the illusion it is larger.
  • Choose clusters. A cluster of diamonds will look like a large single diamond from a distance. Instead of choosing the biggest diamond in your budget consider a cluster to improve the size.
