Do we hear wedding bells? Choosing a diamond may seem slightly daunting, but it really doesn’t have to be. On the contrary – it should be exciting! And we’re here to help you find the most exquisite stone for that special person who makes your heart go boom. As you may know, a diamond or gemstone will usually be the focal point of a ring and will more often than not also be the most expensive part thereof. The clarity, colour, cut and shape will also influence the price of a diamond dramatically, so it’s best to decide on how much you want to spend beforehand, so we can shop for stones that fall within your budget. Our most popular shapes are round, oval, cushion, pear and princess brilliant cut. Once we acquire a selection of stones that meet your specifications, we encourage you to come view them at our studio. At Dear Rae we believe it’s important to choose a diamond that appears perfect to your eye rather than just the microscope’s eye. While two diamonds may seem almost identical on paper, they can actually be very different when placed out in front of you. It’s best to come see for yourself. If you are unable to pop in, we’d be happy to send you images, videos and descriptions.
