Today I would like to write a post to all my fellow men out there who are just considering to become engaged.
I will write this post from one particular angle though! I will write more about how I bought the engagement ring for my girlfriend. I personally bought my diamond ring from Whiteflash and this is why I thought that I might provide some insights into what it is like to buy with Whiteflash.
My concise Whiteflash Diamonds Review
Right from the beginning I decided that I wanted to buy the engagement ring on the internet. I had read a lot about buying diamonds online in magazines such as Forbes.
I quickly came to the conclusion that it would be cheaper to buy a diamond online as opposed to buying it in a traditional brick and mortar store!
When getting deeper down into my research I quickly realized that there are diferent kind of qualities in diamonds. I was really surprised about how much there is to know about diamonds.
One resource that particularly helped me a lot was this diamond clarity guide. In fact, the diamond clarity together with the diamond color are the best places to compromise on in a diamond.
The only thing that you should not compromise on when dealing with diamonds is the diamond cut. This is precisely why I ended up buying a diamond from Whiteflash.
Whiteflash is very well known for having diamonds with a super diamond cut. A superb diamond cut in this case refers to a hearts and arrows diamond that is within super ideal cut proportions.
This was exactly what I wanted to get for myself!
For all you people who don’t have any clue what that means let me give you a brief outline.
Whiteflash A Cut Above diamonds
All of Whiteflash’s signature diamonds are hearts and arrows diamonds. They are called hearts and arrows diamonds because they actually have a hearts and an arrows pattern inside them depending where you actually view them from.
The point of such a hearts and arrows pattern is that is very rare and means that the diamond has an exceptional symmetry. Diamond Experts actually think that only around 1% of all available diamonds fall within the hearts and arrows category!
This kind of superb diamond symmetry also contributes to a better light performance. But I don’t want to tell you any stories. The diamond cut is actually more important than the diamond symmetry.
The diamond symmetry only has a minor influence on the sparkle of the diamond. Still, I had to get my hands on such a perfect diamond.
With A Cut Above diamonds you can be sure that every diamond is a hearts and arrows diamond. Of course, you will still find differences in the quality of the single hearts images. This is why I would recommend to take a closer look at all the single hearts images.
Some hearts images will show larger deviations and some won’t. This is definitely not something that you would ever be able to see with your bare eyes.
But for me it was great fun anyways to search for that one perfect diamond that would be the pinnacle of diamond craftsmanship! This is what I wanted to give to my future wife.
With some help of several diamond experts I was able to find a diamond that had the perfect diamond image.
Not only that but it also had the best diamond proportions you could ever think up!
The best and most balanced diamond proportions are a 34.5° crown angle and a 40.8° pavilion angle! This is exactly the kind of diamond I got!
Of course, you will find many different opinions on this issue! But in general any crown angle between 34.0° – 35.0° and a pavilion angle between 40.6° – 41.0° qualifies for super ideal cut proportions.
If you find a diamond that has both of these crucial proportions in the perfect middle you can be sure that the won’t be any light leakage and the balance of fire and brilliance will be perfect.
This is exactly what I got with my Whiteflash diamond. It looks amazing and sparkles like crazy.
My final word
Whiteflash is certainly not the cheapest place to buy a diamond. Whiteflash is only selling high end diamonds for customers that want to have the best cut imaginable.
Super ideal cut hearts and arrows diamonds are not cheap but they have the best light performance and they truly do stand out!
If you want to buy such a diamond I would recommend to do your research and seriously consider checking out whiteflash.com. Go and read as many Whiteflash reviews as you can to make up your own mind.
In the end I was quite content with my own choice!
What I think is a minus is the fact that Whiteflash does not offer any free returns. I did not have any problem and did not have to return the diamond. But if I had to do it I would have had to pay for the insured return shipping.
If you need more help with finding your perfect diamond I recommend you have a look at the FB profile of yourdiamondteacher and the Twitter Page!
Don’t get frustrated in your search for the perfect diamond. It definitely requires some reading into but I have learned so much more about gemstones in the process of diamond shopping that I don’t regret spending all these hours getting a real education on diamonds!
