Buying diamonds is a very important decision because diamonds last forever and they tend to be expensive. Because buying a diamond is not easy, please take the time to learn all you can before making your purchase.
Diamonds are judged on the 4 Cs; cut, clarity, carat, and color. Depending on how your diamond is graded, prices can vary. Generally, the higher grade diamonds will cost more than lower grade diamonds because they’ll have fewer flaws, have a higher carat weight or a clearer color. Since the beauty of a diamond is its ability to refract light, the clearer the diamond, the better.
Buying diamonds might sound daunting for the first time diamond buyer. There are so many things to consider – like choosing the perfect cut diamond hk and a matching setting at a price that you can afford.
Loose diamonds – or diamonds that haven’t been put into a setting – are often the choice of the most discerning diamond buyers. After buying these diamonds, they can then decide whether to have it put into a ring, ear rings or other diamond fashions.
Many men’s first experience with buying a diamond is as a gift and in some cases for their wedding engagement. Although loose diamonds are beautiful, they might not make the most sense for this occasion. Many jewelers offer an extensive selection of diamond solitaire rings and wedding sets in gold, white gold and platinum. For those that prefer to work with loose diamonds, these same jewelers offer settings that help you design your own look and feel.
These settings can be very simple to an intricate design, depending on the wants and needs of the purchaser. Many jewelers also offer custom inscriptions so your special message is forever remembered.
In addition to being classic wedding jewelry, diamonds are always appreciated set in a necklace, earrings or a tennis bracelet.
