The 3 worst mistakes to avoid when buying an engagement ring, according to a jeweler who's seen ...

The first step to finding the perfect engagement ring is knowing how much you want to spend Though there's a well-known "Guideline" of spending two months salary on an engagement ring, it was actually born from a diamond company's marketing efforts Don't blindly fall victim to the "Four C's".

For years, calculating a diamond's worth has revolved around characteristics known as the "Four C's": cut, clarity, color, and carat size A diamond is rated on a scale for each characteristic by independent gemological societies, and those ratings play a role in how much a diamond is worth Consider two round-cut diamonds that are rated the same for color and carat size but differ only in clarity.
