Chances are that this will be the one and only time that you purchase a wedding ring.

This is where Shawn Steinle comes in. 

Shawn summarizes over 16 years of jewelry business experience in which he has helped over 1700 men and women pick-out and buy their wedding ring.

In this interview you will learn what you need to know about buying a wedding ring AND how to find the perfect ring for the perfect price.


So what are some factors that first time buyers need to think about?



Lots of them...


First of all you will hear about the 4 C's  when you start shopping for diamonds.

The 4 C's are:


1.  Carat

2.  Cut

3.  Clarity

4.  Color


Below is a more information about each one



This is how much a diamond weighs. Obviously the more it weighs the bigger its size.
Note: Diamonds are measured in Carats and gold is measured in Karats.



One carat weighs .20 grams. But since diamonds are natural stones and almost never come out in nice round numbers like 1.00 carat, jewelers use "points."One point = 1/100th of a carat or another way of looking at it is 1 carat = 100 points.
So if a diamond weighs 0.86 carat, you can say with great expertise that it weighs 86 points.

Above is a chart that will give you an idea of the relationship between carat weight and size. The prices below will give you a guideline

  • 0.5 carat, $1,500
  • 1.0 carat, $5,000
  • 1.5 carat, $8,700
  • 2.0 carat, $13,000
  • 3.0 carat, $22,000

This the diamond's shape. The most popular shapes are the round cut and oval cut.  Other cuts include the emerald cut and the princess cut.

Be sure to look at a variety of cuts to see which you like best. Keep in mind that the cut is just as important as clarity and color in determining a ring's sparkliness and price tag.

Why is cut so important?

The angles of a diamond's cut are a play a part in its sparkliness. The more sparkle, the better the cut and the greater the diamond's value



A diamond's clarity is the primary factor in determining its price. "Clarity" refers to how easily you can see any imperfections in the diamonds 


Imperfections on the surface are known as blemishes and those on the inside are known as inclusions.

Why does it matter?

The fewer the flaws results in more light reflected and therefore more sparkle.

The Gemological Institute of America (GIA), the organization which sets the worldwide standards for diamonds, set up a scale for diamond clarity.  You can check out the scale above.

The scale goes like this: flawless, internally flawless, VVS1, VVS2, VS1, VS2, SI1, SI2, I1, I2, I3.

Flawless diamonds mean that you can't see any imperfections under 10X magnification, and I3 diamonds are ones with obvious imperfections.

Which should I get?

Unless you are loaded or want to blow a lot of cash, get a VS or SI diamond. While technically imperfect, you cannot tell these diamonds are flawed unless you look at them under a microscope.




The color of a diamond ranges from clear (colorless) to a faint yellow. The more colorless the diamond, the more expensive it is. There are exceptions to this rule. Some types of diamonds do have color--red,  green, blue, etc...  
These can be very expensive and are traditionally used in wedding rings.

The Gemological Institute of America came up with a scale to grade color. You can check out the scale above.

The closer you are to D, the more expensive the rock. For some reason, the scale starts at D; there are no A, B, or C diamonds.

Could anyone tell the difference between a D and a K?

Probably don't feel compelled to go for the D.

And this is just the beginning...
