It’s an important time in your life when you get engaged but don’t let emotion overwhelm your shopping savvy when you purchase a diamond engagement ring.
Are all sellers’ crooks, thieves and charlatans? Actually, no they are not. The truth is, that all sellers know that no matter what quality they say a diamond 4c is, the buyer will disagree in order to gain whatever possible advantage available. They have no choice but to ‘fudge’ the grading. A gemologist working for the supplier will look at the stones and when something is obviously a particular color, clarity and shape, he will call it as such. To do otherwise would alert the buyer’s gemologist that the seller is full of bull and is counter-productive in maximizing the sale price.
The carat size of a diamond price will inform you how big it is. Of the four quality measurements, carat size is considered last because a diamond’s color, clarity and cut are deemed more important. But the size and weight of a diamond impacts how much you will pay for it.
The Color of the stone means how white it is. A diamond is graded along a color scale which starts from D (the whitest) and goes all the way till Z (yellowish tint). Whiter diamonds are costlier than Yellowish diamonds as these are rarer.
The price of diamond stud earrings will depend on the number of diamonds and the size and cut of the diamonds. So, if you are on a budget, you need to make a compromise here.
Skip looking around on ebay. There are many stores on eBay selling diamonds and many of these sell clarity enhanced diamonds. A clarity enhanced diamond is one that is filled with glass in any cracked areas to make it look like their are no flaws. Not to say that all eBay diamonds are like this but the ones that are not like this have a suspicious way of getting bid up beyond a discount price. eBay can very easily get you in trouble with something you haven’t actually seen and that does not have a GIA certification.
Regardless of your choice in diamond engagement rings you will likely have an easier time of picking just the right one for your someone special by understanding the process and the basics of diamonds. This will allow you to understand what you need to have accomplished in order to achieve the perfect diamond for your budget.
