There are 4 things every buyer should know when learning how to buy a stunning diamond! Read this article and find out more!
So, you have decided that you are completely ready to pop the question and ask the love of your life to marry you. Well, now is time to get a ring and show your love and appreciation towards your future fiance.
You have already spend a few days searching for the perfect ring and as you have done your research, you have probably discovered that the most challenging part of purchasing an engagement ring is choosing a beautiful diamond. But, as many other people out there you are probably asking – how to buy a stunning diamond?
There are 4 things every buyer should know when learning how to buy diamond jewelry:
- You should never buy a diamond based on the certification alone – You should know that two diamonds that look identical (they are certified by the same laboratory, same color, same carat weight, and clarity) are not equal in value. Sometimes, one diamond can be worth much more than the other.
- The location, size, and type of inclusion (the imperfection in the diamond) can impact the diamond’s price. It is really important to understand the fact that the natural flaws in a diamond can be white or black. Diamonds with black inclusions are less expensive or valuable than the ones with white inclusions.
- Usually, carat weight is a priority for most ring buyers. And let’s face it – have you ever heard a woman that says she wants a small diamond? No, right? Sometimes cutters leave weight on a diamond in unpredictable places in order to increase the carat weight. The diamond is heavier, however, will not look bigger on top where it is important.
- Let’s suppose you have two diamonds – one is larger with a modest quality while the other is a smaller diamond with a higher quality. It is definitely a better idea to buy the larger diamond. You should always pay attention to the diamond cut as this is the feature that makes one diamond eye-catching and brilliant.
