While you’re certain about spending the rest of your life with her, you may still have questions about finding the perfect ring. That’s normal and we’re here to help. You’re looking for a ring she’s supposed to wear forever and it’s only proper that you get it perfectly right.

What does 1 CT mean on a ring?

“1 CT” stands for one (1) carat. Carat is the unit of measurement used to identify or specify the weight of a diamond. Carat isn’t a measurement of the diamond’s size, although it’s likely that a higher carat would mean a bigger diamond.

A “1 ct” diamond on a ring pertains to a band adorned with a single diamond weighing one carat.

Please take note that rings with multiple diamonds will usually be marked with “cttw” or “ctw” to specify the total carat weight or the sum of the individual carat weights of all the diamonds in the ring.

Is 1 carat a good diamond weight for an engagement ring?

One carat diamond rings are popular engagement rings for a reason. A full carat diamond ring is a classic choice. It’s beautiful and elegant and is the safest choice in terms of how the diamond ring will look on a lady’s hand. A 1 ct diamond ring also offers the perfect balance of enchantment, luxury, and affordability.

Truth be told, a 1 carat yellow gold or white gold diamond ring makes a fine engagement ring. One carat diamond is a good size and a manageable size to be worn every day with comfort and ease.

Is 1-carat diamond big enough?

One carat diamond is big enough to display the precious rock’s visual properties, namely the fire, brilliance, and scintillation.

Compared with a 3 carat diamond ring, a 1 ct diamond ring won’t get in the way during daily activities. If you are looking for a bigger diamond at a reasonable cost, consider a diamond cut that will deliver a more prominent appearance (marquise or oval cut diamonds in particular) on a finger.

1 carat vs 2 carat diamond rings

It is possible that a 1-carat solitaire diamond engagement ring with outstanding color and clarity will look more attractive than a larger 2-carat diamond ring with less sparkle and more inclusions or imperfections. Remember that weight isn’t everything, and size isn’t everything either. What you must never forget to consider is the four Cs: carat weight, color grade, clarity grade, and cut grade.

Doubling the carat of the diamond will most likely double the size, but the wow factor will still depend on the quality which is significantly affected by the cut. The price reflects the overall quality of the diamond and the style of the ring.

What should I look for in a 1 carat engagement ring?

When looking for a full carat engagement ring, consider the four Cs of diamond buying plus the personality of your bride-to-be. Almost every ring setting can accommodate a full carat diamond so you won’t have a problem choosing a style that matches your significant other’s fashion style, taste, and individual personality.
