Ah, wedding rings... We’ve often talked about how to select a good wedding ring (click here and here for our previous discussions about this topic), and, of course, we also have a number of tips regarding how to select jewelry in general and about the 4Cs of diamonds. Because, let’s be honest: a diamond wedding ring is still the best option, no?

However, there is actually a deeper message that we can glean from the 4Cs of the diamonds gracing our wedding bands. What kind of message? Well, read on, ladies...

Let’s start with Color...
... and just like how the best diamonds are colorless and clear, marriage is supposed to be pure. Oh, sure, no diamond—and no marriage—is perfect. But still, we all should strive to be true in all matters related to our marriage, no?

A good diamond has a good Cut...
... and it’s all about balance and the right proportions. In much the same way, marriage is about balancing two lives, and finding the right proportion in every facet of your new family.

Next up we have Clarity...
... which is a measure of how many flaws are present in a diamond. In a good diamond, the flaws (if any) can only be observed through a microscope or other specialized tools, but are invisible to the naked eye. So, when it comes to marriage, do we really need to put the flaws of our partner under a microscope? Of course not.

And finally we have Carat...
... because the weight of a diamond is an important consideration, no? But, of course, not every measurement is equally important, and everything in life is equally pressing. This is especially true in marriage: Our own individual lives are already quite busy, so two lives would be even more hectic. Therefore, focus on weighty matters first... ;)
