Ritani Princess Cut Diamond Engagement Ring

The princess cut diamond, also known as the princess shaped diamond, was originally created in the 1980s by jewelers Betzalel Ambar and Israel Itzkowitz as an alternative to the classic round cut diamond.

First comes love, then comes marriage… but in between, there’s a whole lot of traditions and decisions. Today, I’m focusing on one tradition that has slowly faded: asking her father’s permission before you propose. As love has become more important to marriage than money and joining families, the traditions have changed too. These days, a man asking his girlfriend’s father for her hand in marriage is more out of respect than permission. Some people argue that asking her father for permission is sexist, chauvinist, and recalls a time when women were treated like property. That’s fine, I get that. We’re...

Loose Diamond Shapes

How much does a one carat diamond cost? The short answer: A 1.00 carat diamond can range in price from about $1,000 to over $12,000. Not very helpful, right?
