Exactly who Does not Love A five Stone Ring?

Before purchasing five year anniversary gift ideas there are a few things you may wish to consider. High quality diamonds sparkle and dazzle the senses if their set in a beautiful design that accentuates the diamonds. When you are purchasing a ring of this magnitude as an engagement ring or for a special occasion, it is best to learn about diamonds and settings. Focus on the quality of the diamond first; beautiful settings should compliment exquisite stones. Diamonds are graded for quality based on the four C’s, which are standard in the industry. They are graded on color, clarity, cut and carat. Color is judged by the whiteness of the stone. Clarity refers to inclusions and blemishes. Cut is the width and depth of a stone and carat is the weight. All of these factors together make a higher quality diamond.

Many of us will remember Richard Burton giving Elizabeth Taylor five year anniversary gift ideas as a token of his love for her. This diamond was 33 carat and worth over 7 million pounds. Today you can look in all the jewelers shops and find a huge array of diamond rings and other types of jewelry, but diamonds are not as plentiful as they seem. So where do we go to find the diamond ring of our choice, these days there are many places Jewelers, the Internet Catalogues and even your daily newspaper magazine. Diamonds are classified by there size and their clarity (quality) and also there color, in other words you get what you pay for. Some places will offer discounts if you buy your diamond ring from them or maybe give you free insurance so it does pay to shop around and not go for the first one that you see.

The round diamond ring you purchase will hopefully be on your finger for a very long time so choose wisely. When buying your diamond ring do not forget to insure it properly many insurance policies only cover an amount of up to $500 for jewelry so your diamond ring will have to be insured as a separate item, so check your policy to avoid losing out should the ring become lost or stolen. Also remember the difficulty in finding these diamonds and the fact that they are in short supply, did you know all the diamonds that have ever been polished would only fit in one double decker bus, makes you think! It is important to care for your diamond once you have chosen it, your daily tasks of cleaning and using household products can leave a film over the diamond which stops it from shining, you may have purchased a diamond ring that has been coated to avoid this but if not try soaking the ring in mild soapy water and using a soft brush to remove any debris. Although diamonds are extremely hard and durable if they have been treated with something to hold the shine using a hard brush or scrubbing too vigorously could remove this protective coating so take care when you do decide to clean your diamond ring.
