There is a good reason to get a blue diamond ring.
If you do not wish to invest a great deal of money on a natural colored diamond, as they are quiet expensive due to their rarity, you can still get your wish fulfilled by getting a treated natural diamond. This process is known as irradiation and it is usually done to poor quality diamonds whose color is not of a desirable grade. The treated diamonds are considerably less priced therefore much more affordable.
Size definitely matters when we are talking about diamonds and rings. If you are thinking to get a blue diamond ring for an engagement ring, you are looking for at least a carat gem stone. Keep in mind the larger the stone, the higher the price. If you do not wish to spend so much yet, you want to impress your girl, there is a solution for that too. Get a multi stone ring for example, the main stone of the blue diamond ring should be of half a carat and two side stones of quarter of a carat.
