Buying a diamond could be one of the most important purchases in one's life. This is why we believe it is part of our job to inform our customers about diamonds so they know exactly what to look for in the perfect diamond. Knowing what to look for makes it a lot easier to know what you are interested in, especially with carat and cut. We have developed the following tips to assist you in learning more about this important purchase...
Things To Look For In The Perfect Diamond
Every single client has their own unique diamond preference. In order to find the perfect diamond, you have to know what style of you in the market for. We see some customers come in with the idea that they will purchase the biggest diamond they can for their particular budget. We don’t recommend this approach, simply because size doesn’t necessarily dictate a diamond’s brilliance. In fact, there are several other factors that we often keep in mind.
•The amount of brilliance or shine a diamond gives off
•The shape of the diamond
•The cut of the diamond
•The color of the diamond
•The size of the diamond
The Proportions of Your Diamond
Honestly, a larger diamond doesn't necessarily mean it will sparkle or shine more. In fact, if a large diamond’s cut isn’t correctly proportioned, less light escapes through the top. The proportions ultimately limit the brilliance of its shine! Large diamonds are also more susceptible to inclusions than smaller diamonds. In fact, their inclusions are more likely to be visible due to their size. If the diamond you’re searching for is the one to take your lover’s breath away, then it’s not about the size of the diamond that matters the most. It’s the proportions and impeccable cut that truly determine a diamond’s brilliance!
The Color of Your Diamond
The color is often the last thing customers think about when buying a diamond. Diamonds come in a variety of colors from colorless to yellowish-brown. These color ranges add beautiful depth and dimension to a diamond. These are often used to bring a unique elegance and charm to a one-of-a-kind piece. The color of a diamond isn’t always about preference, though. In some cases, mounting a diamond with color to a yellow gold piece can give the appearance of a colorless stone. While it may not be the first thought during the diamond buying process, the color of the diamond is an important detail to consider.
