When it comes down to it, not all of us have the budget for a show-stopping massive diamond ring. If you’re unable to afford the size you want, then it’s a good idea to read this article to get the stone you can purchase, one that looks close - if not exactly - to the one you’ve been dreaming to get.

When considering in factors such as shine, cut, as well as the sparkle element, it can be more than possible to create a bigger look and feel of the diamond itself. In fact, if you are on the hunt for precious stones that are unique then there are great online shops to browse, including ones that sell wholesale diamonds.

Searching in the right places can also help you choose a diamond that brings out the absolute best in the stone due to its characteristics. Once you know what to look out for, you will know exactly how to enhance the size of the stone and be one step closer to your dream engagement ring.


1. Think About The Shape
You want to choose diamond shapes that aren’t round. Even though these are the most popular, you need to broaden your scope as these are pricey and due to the shape, some of the diamond is lost in production. When looking at shapes that aren’t as in demand, you can look at getting more stone for the price you are willing to pay. Consider for example, the oval diamond which due to its shape can be a great deal more in carat weight then the round diamond. Aside from diamonds, you can also use a sapphire gemstone from Certified Diamond Network either as a centre stone or as side stones.

2. Get A Slimmer Band
If you don’t want to compromise on the shape and desire a bigger look for the stone itself, then you can cheat a little and get a thinner band. This creates the illusion that the diamond is bigger than it is. Also, look out for how it tapers as it approaches the stone as this will make the diamond stand out even more and look impressive.

3. Get Four Prong Settings
The fewer and the slimmer the prongs, the more of the stone will be on display. This means that the stone will appear bigger than it actually is as less of it is covered by the silver or gold. Another great thing is that it enables more light to pass through the stone, which gives it more brilliance and sparkle. This, once again, increases the perceived size of the diamond stone.

Halo settings are great for boosting the size of the diamond too.

As you can see, there are plenty of great ideas to get your mind ticking as to how the diamond size can be increased to get the most from your ring.
