FINDING YOUR SWEET SPOT OF CARAT AND COLOR
How big of a ring can you get for $10,000?
As you probably know, the price of an engagement ring is generally dictated by the 4 C's (carat, color, clarity, and cut). In the vintage world, which is what we deal in here at Andria Barboné, the price is more accurately dictated by carat, color, clarity, and rarity.
The first step is to determine which of these factors is most important to you and your partner. The main two that most people focus on are carat weight and color.
Some gals desire a white diamond, which would fall in the D-E-F color range. If that's the case, you will likely need to search for a ring with a center stone under 1-carat in order to stay within your $10,000 budget.
On the flip side, if you're open to a stone in the K-L-M color range, which is our fave here at AB and where you get the most bang for your buck, you can get a center stone somewhere in the 1.5-carat range!
