Low diamond color
The mistake: Diamonds are sorted in four ways: the color, cut, carat and clarity.
And Octavia Zamagias, from Octavia Elizabeth Jewelery, said that low color quality diamonds are a surefire way to make rings look cheaper.
Octavia suggested that diamonds with a low color quality, such as K, L and M, will show a more yellow hue.
Rings of this color quality will not look as clear and white as you have always dreamed.
The mistake: Corina Madilian, jeweler for Single Stone, suggested that there was nothing that & # 39; cheaper & # 39; shouts then bad metalwork.
How to avoid: Choose a design that is well executed and not the copy of a poor man from someone else
How to avoid it: Go up in carat weight, but if you are aware of a budget, go down in terms of size.
A smaller, whiter diamond will seem more expensive.
Unbalanced or large teeth
The mistake: Ashley Zhang, from Ashley Zang Jewelery, revealed that large teeth could distract from the middle diamond, scratching the entire appearance of the ring.
And Octavia compared imperfect institutions with a & # 39; an arts and crafts & # 39; project and said: & # 39; Whether you work with a quarter carat or five carat, make sure your stone is set by an expert. & # 39;

How to avoid: Use sharp claws that look more delicate but remain strong enough to hold a diamond in place.
Wrong center stone and diamond halo
The mistake: Although you may feel that a slightly different colored diamond halo can make a ring look striking, Octavia suggested that a contrast in color qualities could actually confuse the eye.
How to avoid: Make sure the center stone matches the diamond melee in the halo – this will make the diamond appear larger.
And Octavia added that details such as the teeth made a huge difference to the final appearance of the ring, suggesting the importance of the setting.
She said: & # 39; Even if your stone is not first class inequality or huge in carat weight, if it is set properly, it will look and feel much more expensive.
A high setting
The mistake: Diamonds set too high can make an engagement ring look cheap. Ashley suggests that this is up to the jeweler by using a mass production for a variety of diamonds.
She pointed to the space under the culet as a freebie.
How to avoid: Work with jewelers who will completely reset the diamonds based on the dimensions of the diamond.
Ashley suggested that this would keep the finger lower and more comfortable for everyday use.
