Buying the engagement ring for your engagement: discover what a jeweler doesn't want you to know

In Spain, the average cost of wedding rings ranges from 500 to 1,000 euros for both; In the case of the engagement ring , the tradition (advertising and coming from the USA) says that 'the reasonable thing' is to invest in it the equivalent of two months of salary , although we have just seen that this rule is completely arbitrary, dictated for an advertising slogan.
If you are going to make the effort to invest in buying a engagement ring, the Fintonic tool can help you make the most of your possibilities. Thanks to Fintonic , you can instantly see what your monthly recurring expenses are and discover what you really have left to invest in your ring. If it were not enough, you can set your purchase as a savings objective in the app, which will help you with its alerts and recommendations to achieve the desired figure in less than you expect.If you are determined to celebrate your decision with a diamond ring in between, from Fintonic we have developed a small guide so that everything goes out to order by word of mouth:

1)    Brilliant, diamond and other concepts that we confuse
Although we tend to listen to them as synonyms, they are not the same. In this link of JoyaEstilo you have a detailed explanation that we can summarize as follows : diamond is stone, rough, and ' brilliant ' is the type of cut, regardless of the material applied. Yes it is true that the round size, called 'in brilliant', is the most popular for those looking for engagement rings instagram and that's where the confusion comes from. The right thing to do would be to talk about 'a brilliant cut diamond'.
2)    What is a carat, how much does it cost and how many carats should my ring have?
There is a way to find out what the cost and quality of a cut diamond is and answer a rule with four C's (in English at least): weight ( carat ), color ( color ), size ( cut ) and the purity ( clarity ). Those four parameters tell us how much we are going to pay for a diamond.
Regarding clarity and color (they are not only white; there are black, green, and red diamonds) we recommend that you take a look at this box of Jewel Style to know what modalities exist. If what we want is an adjusted price with a good result, experts advise us to choose the medium color, with yellow tones ( H and I values ) and a clarity or purity of SI (small inclusions) ; That is, small brands that are seen with magnifying glasses of at least 10 magnifications, hardly with the naked eye, and that hardly differ from others more pure in inexperienced eyes and are much more affordable.

The most usual size , in the form of a brilliant, has a diameter very similar to that of a cigarette and has 57 faces . There are other sizes (heart, oval, pear, triangle ...) that depend on the gemologist; As for weight, it is measured in carats and is one of the major concerns of buyers and is divided into sections or thresholds. A trick to get good prices is to run away from the 'whole' pesos and look around: you do not have to go to half a carat or one, when for 0.30 carats or 0.95 we will pay less without much difference.
Diamond prices increase exponentially for each carat, and not linearly, so if we want a carat, we should buy one of 0.97; if we prefer two carats, our bet can be 1.95. Expert jewelers advise not to exceed 3 carats for comfort and safety, since with a higher weight it can be difficult to wear gracefully in a ring (some go to pendants from there) and will also attract the attention of thieves.
