THE PERFECT ENGAGEMENT RING

Congratulations! You've met the woman you want to spend your life with. That was the easy part. Now you have to make many decisions about your future together. Usually, the first one you need to make is about a Diamond Engagement Ring. And that's not nearly as difficult as it may seem. Men in love have been doing it for hundreds of years. Now that you've found the perfect woman for you, make sure you find the diamond that suits her perfectly. Because, just as your love for each other is unique, no two diamonds are alike. Each has its own personality and sparkle.

I HATE TO ADMIT IT, BUT WHAT DO I REALLY KNOW ABOUT BUYING A DIAMOND?

If you're like most grooms-to-be, not enough. But chances are you've noticed a friend's or relative's beautiful Diamond Engagement Ring and the pride she takes in wearing it. After all, a Diamond Engagement Ring is more than a piece of jewelry. It's an enduring symbol of the love between two people.

It's easier than you may think to select a ring that's sure to make your fiance's eyes light up. Whether she's discussed her preferences with you or dropped not-so-subtle hints, you don't have to go it alone. Visit us and take note of those rings that seem to appeal to her. The enthusiasm of the bride-to-be is your best barometer of what style to select. Later, you can return alone and make the purchase.

HOW DO I KNOW I'M BUYING A QUALITY STONE?

This is an important consideration. You should know that the quality of a diamond has nothing to do with size or color alone. But it has everything to do with the 4Cs: Cut, color, clarity and carat weight.

CUT

Many people confuse cut with shape. A diamond's cut is what gives it its fire and sparkle. When cut to good proportions, the diamond is better able to handle light, creating more sparkle and scintillation.

COLOR

The best color for a diamond is no color. A totally colorless diamond best allows white light to pass effortlessly through it and be dispersed as rainbows of color. Yes, there are very rare pink, blue, and green diamonds. Theses are known as 'fancies.'

CLARITY

Most diamonds contain very tiny natural birthmarks know as inclusions. However, the fewer and smaller the inclusions are, the less likely it is that they will interfere with the passage of light through the diamond. Diamonds, more than any other gemstone, have capability to produce the maximum amount of brilliance. Most jewelers have a rating system that will help you understand the clarity of your stone.

CARAT WEIGHT

This is the weight of the diamond measured in carats. One carat is divided into 100 points. So a diamond of 75 points weighs .75 carat. Carat-weight is the easiest of the 4Cs to determine. But two diamonds of equal weight can have very unequal value, depending on their other characteristics. Fine quality can be found in diamonds of all shapes and sizes. And a fine quality diamond is a little extra weight she'd be pleased to put on.

Our jeweler is the diamond expert and will be happy to explain the 4Cs and show you the differences between various qualities of diamonds. Our established jeweler prizes his good reputation and will help you choose the best quality diamond, your primary consideration when making this purchase.

WHAT'S THE BEST SHAPE FOR A DIAMOND ENGAGEMENT RING?

The precision with which your diamond is cut will determine its brilliance, its fire, and its ultimate beauty. However, the shape you select is a matter of personal taste. The round brilliant is the most popular shape, but there are many others, such as the oval, marquise, pear, emerald and square.

Today the emphasis is on simple, elegant designs that highlight the beauty of the diamonds themselves. So you can never go wrong with the classic Diamond Engagement Ring.

    My wife wanted something special for our wedding day. She asked Olivia what she could do with her mom's diamonds. Olivia took my wife's specs and said give us 4 weeks. In 4 weeks we were shown a model of what the ring would look like. We approved it and what she received was an amazing creation. It was beautiful. My wife was so happy on our wedding day and Mark's made it happen. Thank you to Olivia and the staff at Mark's. Highly recommend

    Mark's offers a wide selection of jewelry and diamonds at all price points. The main reason I am giving 5 stars, however, is the staff. Liz C. was fantastic to work with. She designed absolutely gorgeous new settings for my engagement and wedding bands. She worked with me from concept through design, sizing and fulfillment, spending as much time as I needed to get my rings exactly how I want them! When I need any other jewelry, I would not hesitate to work with Liz again. I couldn't be happier with the process or the finished product!

    I recently had to get 3 wedding rings resized, Mark’s did an amazing job! My engagement ring has a lot of small details on the back which looks seamless now with the resizing. The staff is amazing to work with. We will go back for all of our jewelry needs!

    For me, the value of jewelry isn’t the price you pay, it is the meaning and sentiment attached to it that makes it invaluable. Mark’s has done just that. They customized two very sentimental pieces for me that are unique, one of a kind pieces. From a piece of colored glass to combining three diamond rings into one - their craftsmanship is top notch. I did not hesitate to entrust Mark’s with my wedding rings. I had a great experience working with their team from the design stage to receipt of the final product. I receive many compliments every time I wear my custom pieces. I HIGHLY recommend Mark’s Jewelers.

    I worked with Rina to purchase my engagement ring and she was nothing short of amazing! She took the time to educate me on the process of the four C’s, and we evaluated each diamond using that method. I couldn’t be happier with the way the ring turned out, and my fiancé feels the same. There was no pressure to move quickly with the purchase which was most appreciated and she made sure to stay within my budget; no up-selling.

    My husband bought my wedding band and engagement ring from marks 2 years ago and it’s still gorgeous and never had a problem! Everyone is incredibly sweet and very personable which makes the experience that much more of a pleasure. I had my ring resized this month and got it back today. It is absolute stunning and fits perfectly! They even cleaned it up so nice and shiney it was blinding.

    I couldn't have picked a better place to get an engagement ring. From start to finish, the process was stress-free.. and the team at Mark's was so easy going and extremely knowledgeable. I worked specifically with David, who provided exceptional service and really helped in my first jeweler experience. Also, his professionalism (as well as the entire team's) was top notch. I would recommend highly to all!
