Quick and Easy Buying Guide

Carat weight: 1 carat = 200 milligrams = 6.5 mm diameter. Doubling weight doesn't double diameter.

Diamond clarity: FL/IF/VVS/VS = super expensive, near perfect. SI = best value if you can check a photo for obvious inclusions (defects).


Color: D-G = colorless, expensive, only if you have money to burn. H-J = best value. Can go lower in gold metal settings than white metal.

Cut: Better cut ratings let more light into a diamond, making it sparkle more. Very important property, don't skimp here.

Set a budget and minimum cut (Premium). Go J color for gold and I/H for white metals. Go searching for SI1/SI2 clarity diamonds at James Allen. Pick a diamond with small/no inclusions. Choose a ring setting and buy it risk-free (60-day returns).

There are six types of engagement rings offered, all based off Disney female characters.

The six female characters are Cinderella, Snow White, Princess Jasmine, the Little mermaid Ariel, Sleeping Beauty and Belle.

The rings are priced moderately in the range of a few thousand dollars US.

The rings consist of a number of designs but are all based in white gold, which led to some criticism upon their release.

For a couple with a strong affinity to fairy tales or just in general Disney stories, the Disney wedding and engagement rings are a good option.
