Picking The Perfect Diamond Band

The diamond band symbolizes a celebration of love. Having diamonds in a beautiful circle around the finger, which displays true love.  The idea of the Diamond band dates back 4,000 years ago during the ancient Egyptian era. Although, the Egyptians did not present these rings to mark wedding anniversaries. Yet, the relevance of the rings still stands. 

People would always look for opportunities to express their never-ending love. The diamond band has never ceased to disappoint by meeting expectations.

Most of the perfect diamond band we craft at Diamond by Raymond Lee mark one of three occasions. Diamond bands often become eternity wedding rings. The perfect circle of diamonds becomes the perfect symbol for wedding vows. The Diamond bands often serve as wedding anniversary rings. The band serves to celebrate a milestone like the first anniversary and so on. Finally, diamond bands are a popular way to mark the birth of a child and the endless circle of life.

The diamond band is an important jewelry asset for couples, regardless of the occasion. Also, it’s also very rare to get your diamond band for the same price as your engagement ring. 

Furthermore, buying the Diamond band is challenging. Unlike buying engagement rings because there are quality checks to consider. The small diamonds present in the diamond band rarely have GIA grading reports. That means the store or online retailer where you buy your ring should be trustworthy.

Understanding the Diamond Band

A perfect diamond band has several diamonds, which circles the entire band or the top part of the band. Another thing to note is that diamond bands rarely have a centerpiece. In other words, you would not refer to an engagement ring as a diamond band. 

But, Diamond bands are like wedding bands or eternity bands. Once a diamond band is very big, we could place it in the cocktail ring category. Nonetheless, some diamond bands can be placed with other rings. 

A diamond band is an expensive, elegant, contemporary-fashion ring for women. It’s for women who love precious metals and diamonds. Although, while they stand out they do not overpower any look. 

Questions that will help you pick the perfect perfect diamond band

Here are questions to ask to make sure you pick the perfect diamond band and the right jeweler to craft it.

How Much Does the Diamond Band Cost?

First, you should decide on your budget for the diamond band. You may have to tweak your budget once you start seeing the options you like. But, keep in mind that making budget changes will affect your buying options. But your budget is a matter of personal preference. Some couples spend around 50 to 100 percent of the cost of their diamond engagement ring on a diamond band. 

What’s Your Best Bet: A Full Diamond Or Half Diamond Band Or ¾ Diamond Band?

The symbol of the perfect diamond band lies in the unbroken circle of diamonds. Some couples decide to choose a half-diamond band which goes halfway around the finger. Or they choose a three-quarters diamond band that has diamonds ¾ of the way around your finger.

These partial diamond bands have metal at the back so they can be sized. A compromise like this is a perfect pick if your finger size is not static, since the ring size of a diamond band can’t be adjusted. 

It also makes it easier to pass the perfect diamond band down to a relative who may have a different finger size.  Fewer diamonds means the price range for a half diamond band is much lower. This happens so you can afford to have larger higher quality diamonds.

Yet, a half diamond band isn’t a good choice if your rings tend to spin on your finger. Because, most likely, you will often see metal, and not diamonds. Having your diamonds “off-center” in a half diamond band may annoy you if you are a person who likes order. You’ll notice that the half-diamond band and ¾ diamond bands are good options. Because they are for those who are active or work with their hands.

On Which Finger Would Love To Rock The Diamond Band?

On any finger you wish! But it’s a good idea to think about the finger you’d love to rock your diamond band. Because it will help you choose the setting style. It’s up to you to make the decision. Whether to wear your diamond band on your left-hand ring finger. Or to wear it next to your engagement ring and wedding ring. Then you would need a ring style that complements those rings. 

Generally, if you are stacking the three diamond rings, follow this order. The wedding band should be at the bottom, the engagement ring, and then the diamond band. You should wear it on the other side of the engagement ring. Of course, you can change the order as you wish. If you are planning to wear your perfect diamond band on your right hand. We advise that you would need to pick a bigger ring size.

What Diamond Band Setting Style Is Best?

There are many style options for a typical Diamond band. The most common is a pave diamond band setting.  This is often used for delicate diamond bands that match an engagement ring. In this ring setting, the diamond is set into the metal and prongs are pushed over the stone from the sides.

A split prong diamond band setting has four separate prongs. These separate prongs branch from the base of the ring to support each diamond. It allows light than the pave setting, resulting in a brighter spark.

Shared prong perfect diamond band, also sometimes called U-shape diamond bands. Reason is that their prong splits between two diamonds. And they are scooped out to allow light to enter from the side of each diamond.

Furthermore, the gems can be held in place from behind or have small pave prongs in front. Although the extra metal protects the diamonds and also blocks off light. In a bezel set perfect diamond band, each diamond is held in an individual metal frame. And this gives the ring a modern look and also protects the stone.

What Shape Diamond Is Best For the Diamond Band?

Although round diamonds are the most popular choice for diamond bands, other diamond shapes are also good. For instance, the emerald cut eternity bands, baguette diamond eternity bands. Other types of cut are princess cut diamond bands, radiant cut diamond bands, and Asscher cut diamond bands. These are all spectacular since the straight sides of each diamond can be set side by side. More so, this would result in a solid wall of brilliance around the finger. Other shapes that make lovely eternity bands are oval shape diamonds and marquise cut diamonds. 

What Size Diamonds Are Best For Diamond Bands?

How big should the diamonds in a perfect diamond band be? If you are stacking your diamond band, you usually will pick a diamond size that complements the other rings on that finger. But, it’s best to think about the width of the band in mm rather than the carat weight of each diamond. 

The thinnest diamond bands will be about 1.4mm wide. A big eternity band will be 3mm or wider. Remember, the larger the diamonds in your band, the taller the band will be. And this means you will feel it between your fingers, because the diamonds are on the side as well as in front and back. 

The diamonds usually range from .05 carats each to 0.20 carats each. The perfect diamond band can be less than a carat total weight to seven carats total weight or even more. The larger the diamonds, the fewer of them you need to go around your finger.

What’s Your Ring Size?

At Diamonds by Raymond Lee we custom craft every diamond band in order to fit your finger since they can’t be sized. That means that you need to know your ring size before you buy your diamond band. If you plan to stack your ring, ensure the size you pick can be worn well in your preferred stacking position. Often a band worn higher on the finger will need to be a quarter-size or a half size larger. 

Moreover, another reason the finger size is important is that the diamonds will be spaced out to fit around your finger. The number of diamonds and total carat weight of your perfect diamond band depends on the ring size. A size 7 ring will have more diamonds than a size 5. That’s why at Diamond by Raymond Lee we price our entire diamond band according to the finger size. 

Because sizing is very important, ensure to check the return policy of the online store. Some jewelry stores don’t accept returns of diamond bands since they are made to order.

What Diamond Quality Is Best For A Diamond Band?

What diamond quality should you select for the diamonds in your diamond band? At Diamond by Raymond Lee we offer four different diamond qualities. If the diamond band is worn next to an engagement ring or wedding band, the 4Cs should be similar. You’ll also want to choose more colorless diamonds. A G or H color grade is best if you are setting your diamond band in platinum or white gold rather than yellow or rose gold.

The most important factor is that the diamonds in your perfect diamond band should be of the same quality. But not only in color and clarity but in cut and appearance. Our gemologists spend a lot of time matching diamonds to create matched eternity rings. It’s part of the seamless endless circle effect. You would want to ensure that none of the diamonds are dark or too shallow so they look out of place in the circle.

Are The Diamonds Sourced Well?

The Diamond sourcing method for your diamond band is as important as the diamond in your engagement ring. But some vendors only trace the center diamond in the rings they sell, not the smaller diamonds.  At Diamonds by Raymond Lee we trace the small diamonds we sell too. When we make your eternity band to order we select matching diamonds from reliable sources. 

What Is The Best Metal For A Diamond Band?

When it comes to the metal for your perfect diamond band, you should only consider precious metals. Sterling silver isn’t strong enough to withstand the wear a diamond band receives. Moreover, Platinum or gold are the best choices. 

Platinum is a good choice, because even in thin wires it holds stones in place. Gold is also very durable, with white gold, yellow gold and rose gold providing color options to complement the other rings you wear every day. The best metal choice for a perfect diamond band is platinum. This is because it does blend in with the diamonds in a seamless way and keep your diamonds safe. Ensure that you ask about the sourcing of the metal for your ring. 

Are The Diamonds Secured?

When you finally receive your diamond Band, there is one more crucial step to take before you put it on. Tap on each stone with your finger to ensure that it doesn’t move from its position. Each month when you perform your routine maintenance, check the stones to ensure they are not loosed from their position. Performing this monthly maintenance check will make sure that you never lose a diamond. Repeat this process every year to make sure that your perfect diamond band will last for a long time to come.
