Diamonds are extremely beautiful and can compliment almost any outfit perfectly, being as alluring out at the most beautiful function as they are demure in the workplace. But when you want to buy some diamond jewellery, what things do you need to bear in mind?
There are the obvious checklist items such as price and whether the seller is reputable or not. Always compare a price first and ensure that any diamond rings, earrings or necklaces you buy come with full certification from the correct bodies.
However, there are other things to think about that will affect the item you buy. Diamonds are classified by the four Cs: Carat, Colour, Clarity and Cut. Cut is one of the most important of these and will usually affect the look and brilliance of the piece more than any other. A good cut will ensure that those diamond rings shine in just the way you want them too.
Colour meanwhile will affect the price hugely, but unless you happen to have a particular colour you want or need, then this shouldn’t hugely change the amount you pay as you will easily be able to find a brilliant piece of diamond jewellery for the right price if colour is not a major issue for you.
Carat signifies the weight and therefore won’t affect the great look, whilst clarity is all about the natural flaws of the diamond. However, any flaw simply serves to make the ring unique, so unless it makes it unsightly, this shouldn’t worry someone just looking for a great ring or necklace too much.
Finally, think about where you are buying these items. Ensure that they are selling only ethically sourced diamonds, and ensure you look for reputable companies. If you want to save yourself a bit of money, shopping online is almost certainly going to get you a far better quality diamond for a much better price.
