Simplicity Itself

While not everyone can afford a 3-carat diamond, there are techniques that any woman can employ to take her diamond jewelry look bigger than it really is. The first of these diamond enlarging strategies rests with choosing a fancy-shaped diamond. In particular, diamonds with elongated shapes (marquise, oval, and pear-shaped) tend to look larger than round diamonds of equal weight. Diamond lovers can also choose pavé settings, which involve side-by-side placement of diamonds that makes them appear to blend together, resulting in the assembled diamonds looking like one large diamond surface. Another technique employs an “illusion” setting, in which the diamond is mounted to a mirror-like plate (before setting it into the band), making the diamond look larger and more brilliant. Diamonds of any size are sure to be a brilliant choice for that very special gift or to add to your own jewelry collection. And because they are the hardest substance known to man, and their shimmering beauty is without peer, they are a true investment in the future.
