Purchasing an engagement ring can seem like a daunting task, especially for those who have never purchased jewellery before. Adding further confusion to the process are the 4C's such as cut, colour, clarity and carat weight which determine the value of the diamond.
To learn more about the 4C's, please click on the link below. Gone are the days where people used to visit several shops to try and get the best possible prices for an engagement ring or a wedding ring.
Splendor Diamonds recently introduced the 360° degree diamond viewer on every engagement ring page, a tool that allows you to to control from what angle you see your diamond, and move it from left to right so you can see all the details.
That means you get a view of the diamond that's even better than holding it in your hand. Now you can truly understand the diamond's beauty, shape, cut, colour, clarity & sparkle like never before.
Customers now can send all their jewellery enquiries to email@example.com and we can send you all the details about the diamond along with the video link and GIA certificate on their email addresses with unbeatable prices for the quality offered by Splendor Diamonds. Please see the picture below.

LEARN ABOUT THE 4C'S

Topping our list is the round shaped diamond. This has and will continue to be the most popular choice for diamond shapes in engagement rings. Round diamonds represent roughly 75% of all diamonds that are sold worldwide.
PRINCESS CUT DIAMONDS
Moving past the classic round diamond shape, another top seller is the princess cut diamond. Princess cut diamonds were first created in 1980 and are considered a "fancy cut". They are square in shape and will reflect light back to your eye in a a unique way compared to the more classic round diamond.
The square shape also gives the ring a completely different look. Many women will choose the princess cut diamond because of their preference towards the square shape over round, It's also more unique than a round diamond, although it still is our second most popular seller. Princess cut diamonds work well in almost any style of ring so they are a great choice.
CUSHION CUT DIAMONDS
Cushion cut diamonds are fancy cut diamonds that are square shaped with rounded corners, giving them a softer outline over the harsher lines of princess cut diamonds. Many people refer to this cut of diamond as a pillow because of its shape, which is also how it got the name "cushion" cut.
Although there has been a lot of buss around cushion cut diamonds lately, these diamonds have actually been around for almost 200 years. For the first 100 years of their existence, cushion cut diamonds were even the most popular diamond shape ! But the version of a cushion cut diamond that you would find today is much different than a vintage cushion cut diamond. Modern modifications are refinements allow for the sparkle and brilliance of a cushion cut diamond to be amplified. We've seen a resurgence in popularity with this type of diamond, putting it high on our list.
EMERALD CUT DIAMONDS
Emerald cut diamonds are distinctive. Women who wear emerald cut diamonds are not afraid to be ahead of the curve and don't mind having a diamond that is different.
One thing about emerald cut diamonds that we always make sure to point out is the fact that often times inclusions or yellow colour in an emerald cut diamond will be easier to see. It's very easy to see into the depths of these diamonds.
OVAL CUT DIAMONDS
Oval diamonds have an old-fashioned feel to them compared to the more modern round diamond. Because oval diamonds are technically just modified versions of round diamonds, they do share similar characteristics. You'll find a similar fire, brilliance, and sparkle in an oval diamond as you do in a round diamond.
One advantage of choosing oval diamonds is their elongated shape. This helps create an illusion of a greater sized diamond (one of our many tips to make an engagement ring look bigger).
MARQUISE CUT DIAMONDS
Speaking of elongated diamond shapes, marquise cut diamonds are boat-shaped and also modified round diamonds. The long and narrow shape of marquise diamonds is, yet again, another way to get that longer look that creates the illusion of a much larger diamond (which can save you some serious money). It's a great choice if you are trying to maximise your budget, because it's also the diamond that covers the most surface area of any other diamond shape compared carat weight to carat weight.
A good pear shaped diamond should have excellent or very good symmetry, and the point of the diamond should line up with the middle of the rounded end. Additionally, the upper and lower curves on the side of the diamonds should form symmetrical curves.
Pear diamond are beautiful when they are proportioned correctly, but they can be hard to find !

When Max Kumar, the Founder of Splendor Diamonds started building the company website http://www.splendordiamonds.co.uk/ 2014, he dreamed about creating something new and fresh within the jewellery industry.
He wanted to create a jewellery website where customers could learn everything about diamonds, gemstones, precious metals etc and browse all jewellery products from their smartphones.
Most jewellery websites either specailise in engagement rings or wedding rings but he wanted to show a range of engagement rings, wedding rings, eternity rings, gemstones, dress rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings etc, all under one roof.
With this in mind he created our company website http://www.splendordiamonds.co.uk/
optimised the website for smartphones so all users can visit and view all our products from their smartphones.
Splendor Diamonds is the only jewellery website in U.K, which is completely optimised for mobile phones and customers can view all our products from their phones.
Because of the nature of the business, Max did not want to include e-commerce as he believes that jewellery has sentimental values and the company should provide personalised customer service to each of its clients.
Today all customers have the facility to view all our designs on their phones and call us with the product code and pay us over the phone for their favourite jewellery collections.
As of today most people check their phones up to 150 times a day and according to Jewellery Focus, one of the leading jewellery magazines in U.K, the number of international customers searching for UK retailers has increased due to the popularity of smartphones, according to the British Retail Consortium's Google Online Retail Monitor.
The search volumes on mobile phones increased by 26% in the second quarter of the year compared to last year.
For all devices across the U.K, search volumes maintained year on year growth of 7% in the second quarter of 2017.
Estonia showed the most interest in U.K retailers, reporting a 77% growth on mobile devices in Q2 2017 compared with the same quarter a year ago.
Helen Dickinson OBE, chief executive on the BRC, said: "The increase in mobile search volumes over this period is consistent with the upward trend in online non-food sales growth.
"One in five pounds are now consistently spent online for non-food purchases at home, while the growth in mobile browsing from the EU demonstrates a stable appetite for U.K brands from overseas consumers".
She addes: "Satisfying this interest from abroad through retailer's digital offer, is crucial to go some way to offsetting the more discretionary spending habits of hard-pressured UK consumers."
