What options are there for an engagement ring with a 4- carat diamond?

The most important decision, that also has a significant impact on the total price of the ring, is if you choose a solitaire engagement ring with 4 carat or a ring with multiple diamonds with a total of 4 carat.

The bigger a single diamond and the higher its quality, the more scarce it is. The price doesn’t increase linearly with the carat weight of a stone. For example, the price of 10 smaller diamonds of 0,40 carat will be a fraction of a 4-carat diamond of same quality, even though the total carat weight of the piece of jewellery is equal.

Besides the solitaire, Halo engagement rings and Trilogy Engagement Rings are particularly popular too. With the Halo ring, many small diamonds surround the central diamond. They provide sparkle and fire, just like the luminous circle of the sun, and they make the cental stone appear larger make it stand out even more. The Trilogy Ring is set with 3 stones, in which the bigger central diamond is flanked on both sides by a smaller diamond.

Generally speaking, there are no limits to your imagination. Especially with luxurious engagement rings, the number of possible designs is inexhaustible. Together with the jewellery experts of BAUNAT, you can design your own dream ring, a custom- made engagement ring that matches perfectly your imagination and idea.

What details should I keep in mind when buying a 4- carat diamond engagement ring?

Regardless of the budget and the absolute size of the diamond, you should above all look out for the quality, which in diamonds is defined by 4 characteristics: Carat, Colour, Clarity and Cut, the so-called 4C’s. These criteria not only determine the price of a diamond, but also its beauty.

A beautiful diamond doesn’t have to be perfect and achieve the optimum in all 4 categories. It should be balanced, as the individual quality features cannot balance each other out. Inclusions that are visible to the naked eye won’t disappear with an ideal cut, and a flawless diamond doesn’t compensate for any defects in the cut.

The 4C’s, as well as the authenticity of a diamond, are confirmed in its certificate, which also proves that the stone is of natural origin. Don’t buy treated diamonds that have been subsequently improved in quality. The certificate should come from an independent and respected diamond laboratory such as GIA, HRD or IGI. These laboratories rate diamonds particularly rigorously, so you can be sure that the objective quality corresponds to what is listed in the certificate.

As the material for a 4-carat engagement ring, only choose 950 platinum or 750 gold (often referred to as 18-carat gold).These high-quality and at the same time robust precious metals ensure that you will enjoy your engagement ring for a lifetime.

Where do I find the best value for money?

In order not to pay more than what’s necessary for a 4-carat engagement ring, you should choose a supplier who gets its gemstones directly from the source and avoids unnecessary additional costs for intermediaries and expensive shops in exclusive locations. The leaner the company structure, the more the focus is on the actual product and not the brand, and the more you benefit as a customer.

You will find a particularly attractive value for price in Antwerp, the world capital of diamonds. Thanks to its port, the city is the center of the diamond trade. Three of the largest diamond exchanges can be found in the diamond district, which consists of a few streets only. This not only guarantees an exceptionally large variety of diamonds, but also particularly fair prices.
