Getting engaged is one of the most exciting events a couple will ever go through. The adrenaline that rushes through our bodies is truly unmatched.  However, once the hype settles and we begin shopping for that special engagement ring, common questions start to arise.


One of the most common questions we receive is, “Does Size Really Matter?”  In this economy, couples are more value conscious than ever.  Many couples experience constant pressure from both family and friends to meet and exceed certain expectations.  It may seem like a very difficult question, but it’s actually quite simple.  
The size of the diamond should only be important to the couple getting married.  I know it’s very easy to get swept up by the opinion of people around you, but at the end of the day, it is a symbol of your love and commitment to each other.  A bigger diamond doesn’t necessarily mean more love, just like a smaller diamond doesn’t mean not enough.  


Here are some things to consider when shopping for that perfect diamond:
1.  Budget - Your engagement ring budget  will have a significant impact on what size diamond you can select.  Choosing a beautiful diamond for an engagement ring shouldn't break the bank.  
2.  Quality vs Size - Once you evaluate your budget, consider what matters most to you - quality or size.  Several factors play a significant role in the pricing of a diamond, so make sure you know which is most important.
3.  Personality - Just like every woman, each diamond has its own unique qualities that make it one of a kind.  Let the diamond speak for itself.  You will fall in love once the right one is presented, no matter what the size.   
In the end, size shouldn’t really matter.  The important thing to remember is that no matter what size diamond you select for your engagement ring, as long as it’s given and received with complete love and devotion, it will be perfect.
