双语:关于买订婚戒指的小知识

The first thing you learn when you begin engagement ring shopping is the four C's of diamonds: cut, color, clarity, and carats. Which of these is responsible for your stone's sparkle? Philip Press of Philip Press Master Platinumsmiths says, "The cut is the single determining factor that causes a diamond to sparkle. For a diamond to have the most brilliance, it needs to be proportioned properly and have a superior polish." That means a stone with a bigger surface area (width) isn't necessarily better than a smaller stone with adequate depth to reflect light and create sparkle.
第一件事你要学的当你买订婚戒指的时候是钻石的4C:剪裁,颜色,清晰度和克拉。这些中的哪一个会对石头的闪光负责?飞利浦 普雷斯铂金大师说,“剪裁是导致戒指闪光的单一的决定因素。为了使钻石拥有最多的光泽,它需要比例适当并经过极佳的打磨。”那也就意味着石头有着更大的必要的表面区域比一块小石头有着适当的深度反应光泽和创造光芒更好。

Shopping for an engagement ring is an exciting time! But between the cut of the diamond, the style of the setting, and the quality of the stone, there is a lot to consider. We've turned to some of the industry's best experts for smart tips to consider when buying an engagement ring.
购买订婚戒指是一个令人兴奋的时刻!但是在钻石的剪裁,布景的风格和石头的质量之间,有很多要去考虑。我们向工厂的最好的专家寻求聪明的建议什么时候买订婚戒指。

Choose Your Stone Shape, but Let Him Pick the Rest
选择你的石头的形状,但让他挑选其余的

The ring-buying process should be fun for your guy, not a chore. To help him out without overwhelming him, jeweler Jean Dousset of Jean Dousset Diamonds says, "Let him know what you want [in terms of] diamond cut and design and then leave it up to him to surprise you as much as possible." Since the stone size and clarity are often a function of the budget, limit your directions to elements that aren't affected by the price, like a specific cut or setting style you like.
购买戒指的过程应该对于你来说很有趣,并不是日常事务。为了不压榨他帮助他摆脱困境,吉恩 多塞特宝石的宝石钟表商吉恩多塞特说,“让他知道你想要什么样的宝石剪裁和设计,留给他,让他使你尽可能的吃惊。”因为石头类型和清晰度经常起预算功能,限制了元素不能被价格影响的方向,像一种你喜欢的确定的剪裁或布景风格。

There's More to an Engagement Ring Than the Diamond
对于订婚戒指要比钻石关注的更多

When we think of engagement rings, we often focus on the stone, but the setting is what really determines the final product. If you can't have the carat weight of your dreams, focus on creating a setting you love instead. Paul Tacorian of Tacori says, "It's really about the design and the style of the ring. You want to get her a diamond that is beautiful, but the design is a representation of who she is and her personal style."
当我们思考订婚戒指的时候,我们经常专注于上面的石头,但是设计是什么真的决定了最终的产品。如果你不能拥有你梦想的克拉重量,取而代之那就专注于创造一个你喜爱的背景吧。说,“真的是关于戒指的设计和风格。你想给她一个漂亮的钻戒,但是设计代表了她是谁和她的个人风格。”

White Gold or Platinum?
白金还是铂金?

While both are great choices, Press says that white gold is "not as durable as platinum." If you're worried about scratches and wear and tear, platinum may be the better choice. But keep in mind, "it is also 60 percent heavier than gold."
尽管两者都是很好的选择,普雷斯说白金并“不像铂金一样耐用。”如果你担心抓,戴和撕,铂金可能会是更好的选择。但是记住,“它也比金子重60%。”


Which Shape Is Right for You?
哪一种类型适合你?

Just like shopping for a wedding dress, Dousset suggests you "visit some jewelry stores to get familiar with the different shapes. Choosing the right cut will always be an instinctive decision. If you always revert to the same cut, it is the one."
就像是买婚纱,多塞特建议你参观一些珠宝店来熟悉不同的类型。选择正确的剪裁总是本能的决定。如果你总是归属同样的剪裁,就是一个。

Compare Rings Within Your Budget
比较一下戒指是否在你的预算内

Since no two stones are alike (cut, clarity, color, and carat dramatically affect the pricing of a ring), it's best to compare a few that are all within your budget. "Seeing rings you can ultimately afford will enable you to compare 'apples to apples' when you shop," says Dousset.
因为没有两块同样的石头(剪裁,清晰度,颜色和克拉会对戒指的价格产生激动人心的影响),最好考虑一些所有都在你的收支内的。“看你能最终负担的起的戒指会使你在购物时货比三家,”说。

To Halo or Not to Halo?
要光环还是不要光环?

While this is a matter of personal preference, Press says, "Some people think solitaire is a much more classic, traditional style. The halo setting certainly makes the diamond look larger and more impressive and adds another style element to the ring."
尽管这是私人爱好的事情,普雷斯说:“一些人认为独粒宝石首饰更倾向于古典的传统的风格。光环的背景当然会使钻石看起来更大更吸引人给戒指增加另一种风格元素。”

Should You Splurge on Color or Clarity?
你应该挥霍在颜色上还是清晰度上?

"A lot of people are concerned with clarity when they think about the quality of the diamond. Clarity is probably one of the least important factors. As long as the diamond is 100 percent clean to the naked eye, that is perfectly acceptable to the majority of people," says Press. "Color is something you can see straight away with the naked eye." Many people prefer to stay at a G or an H in color or above to ensure the stone doesn't appear yellow.
“许多人当他们考虑钻石的质量的时候会关心清晰度。清晰度可能是最不重要的因素之一。只要钻石对于肉眼来说是百分之百干净的,对于大多数人来说是相当接受的,”普雷斯说。“颜色是你直接用肉眼能看见的东西。”许多人更喜欢颜色保持G或H或在这之上来保证石头不会看起来发黄。
