Hey all, So I've been poking around the internet and the forums trying to teach myself about diamonds. I'm kind of embarrassed to say I have no clue what to look for. I really wasn't into jewelery until recently nor had I ever really thought about engagement rings or anything like that. Now I'm at the point where I really want to learn about diamonds so I can decide what I want . I've read articles about the 4 C's but I was hoping that all you folks could tell me what you think the most important characteristics are and how YOU pick your diamonds. Articles are great, but I'd love to hear what you guys think. I really am quite clueless when it comes to this. I've read all the e-ring threads I can get my hands on but I'm still kind of confused. Then I went to blue nile just to look at some prices and I have no clue what to pick! Thanks!
