1. Go for a fancy shaped diamond

2. Buy a visually larger diamond

Shapes like pear, marquise or oval look larger than they actually are as compared to the classic round shape. If you want a diamond that looks pricey but is affordable, then these shapes will do the trick for you.

3. Rose Gold Metal

Rose gold is a warmer metal tone as compared to yellow gold. White crystal diamonds are known to reflect the light of their surroundings as they are prismatic. So, your diamond will look more radiant and sparkling when set in a subtly toned metal such as rose gold.
