Five Tips for Finding a 2-Carat Natural Diamond in Your Budget

Jill Newman

"Don’t judge antique diamonds by their color grading on a certificate, says Gandia. Some vintage diamonds in a J, K, or I color rating can still appear beautiful, especially when set in a gold yellow gold ring. “Because of the way older diamonds were cut, there is something magical and alluring about them.” She pointed to the brand Single Stone’s stylish antique diamond rings as a great example of diamonds that twinkle warmth in contrast to a super white, precision cut new stone.

Bottom line: Antique diamonds have a warmth and romance that some people find irresistible."

"Jewelry designer Ari Madilian of Single Stone often works with couples who choose to highlight heirloom stones. “How beautiful is it knowing that you are wearing a piece that was in your family for many years and belonged to someone you loved,” he says. “The sustainability and cost savings are just the icing on the cake.”"


How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Band for Your Halo Engagement Ring

"According to Corina Madilian of Single Stone, “A halo setting can be done using any shape, cut, or type of center stone and can be framed with a variety of stones—gemstones, diamonds, varying cuts—just as long as the main stone is framed to create a halo effect.” Case in point: Kate’s ring, famously, is an oval sapphire framed by diamonds; Cardi’s, a pear-shaped diamond with a double halo of white and pink diamonds; Brown’s, a round-cut diamond with a cushion-shaped diamond halo.These rings are especially popular with brides who want to flaunt a striking center gem, and for those who want to increase the overall size of their sparkler without upping the carat count. “Because of the surround framing of the center stone, you can make the center stone look larger and really draw attention to it,” explains Madilian."
