Minneapolis, MN (PressExposure) August 26, 2009 -- Knox Jewelers, a family-owned jewelry business in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis, has been helping couples find the perfect engagement ring for 25 years. They are a part of the ring buying process from start to finish. Knox Jewelers was voted number one for "Best Jewelry in the Twin Cities, Best of CitySearch Audience Winner" in 2007.
Knox Jewelers offers many varying styles of diamond rings from antique engagement rings, contemporary engagement rings, round brilliant rings, solitaires, fancy shape rings, three stone engagement rings and more. These varying styles convey a personal sense of style that will be reflected in the ring for years to come.
The cut, clarity, color and carat of the diamond also makes the ring special and unique. The cut of the ring refers the proportions of the diamond that allow it to handle light and sparkle. This is often confused with the shape of the diamond, which many times is round, princess, radiant among others. Knox Jewelers stocks only the highest quality diamonds with the perfect cut to showcase the diamond.
The clarity of a diamond is determined by using a 10-power magnification. To the untrained eye, clarity refers to the number of tiny natural birthmarks known as inclusions. The less inclusions, the higher the clarity and sparkle of the diamond. The best color for a diamond is no color, but diamonds are still rated on a "D" through "Z" scale with "D" being completely colorless. Carat size refers to the diamond's weight. Five carats equal one gram.
Knox Jewelers also specializes in custom diamond ring design that allows the couple to make their own one-of-a-kind engagement ring. Through state-of-the-art technology, couples can hand pick numerous customizations to make the contemporary diamond ring of their dreams.
