Diamonds are precious and they are bought mainly for special occasions. Whether it is for an engagement or wedding or any other occasion, buying diamonds has become a regular feature with many people. In order to ensure the quality of the diamond, it is important to keep in mind a few points which are given below for your information.
The first thing is to decide the budget for buying diamonds. After deciding what you want to buy – whether it is affordable diamond earrings in Sydney or wedding rings, look at the price range in which it is available. Next, you have to look for the 4 “Cs” before buying the diamond. They are color, cut, clarity and carat weight.
Color of the stone plays a very important part in choosing the diamond. Diamonds color usually varies from being colorless to blue or yellow. The color in the stone signifies the purity of the gem. It is generally felt that the yellowish tinge in the diamond stone makes it look old.
The cut of the diamond makes it shine. A well cut diamond will absorb all the sunlight and reflect it back fully. If it is a shallow cut diamond, it will not absorb much light, and if it is cut very deeply, then it will absorb light but it will not reflect it back. There are various cuts and only the jeweler can explain the different cuts. Princess cut diamonds are very popular as they sparkle and look beautiful.
The clarity of a diamond signifies the flawlessness of the stone. You should basically buy a diamond which is flawless or a diamond which has fewer incursions visible to the naked eye. If ‘scars’ are seen on the stone when you examine it with a naked eye, it is better not to buy that diamond. If scars are visible when the stone is examined with a magnifying monacle which is available with the jeweler, then you can consider buying it. Princess cut engagement rings are flawless and its cut adds luster to it.
The last ‘C’ is the carat. This signifies the weight of the diamond. Large diamond stones are very expensive and cannot be got easily. Therefore, two half carat stones are less costly than a single full carat ring. Quality diamond rings can be bought with 3-4 lesser carat stones than one big single stone. This will give you the same total carat weight and is less expensive.
The diamond is usually set traditionally in gold but nowadays the setting is made in silver, white gold and platinum. A jeweler can help you make your choices and tell you more about the four “Cs”. Eternity diamond rings are worn by couples to show their love for each other.
A bride likes to be presented with another wedding band to be added to the engagement ring. Some prefer an amazing anniversary ring in Sydney too to be put on the other hand. The price of this depends on the cut and design of the stone. An anniversary ring will please your wife and you will have the satisfaction of selecting a good gift.
