Things to Keep in Mind While Buying Diamond Jewellery

Posted on February 26 2020

Buying diamond jewellery is very exciting and because it is an investment, you want to make sure you select a piece that is perfect. There are certain elements you must look out for to ensure you buy diamond jewellery you not only love but one that is worth the amount you’re spending. 

Make sure you’re looking at a real diamond. There are substitutes like cubic zirconia, for example, which is used as a substitute but it’s not a real diamond and costs a lot less. If you’re in the market for a diamond, make sure a diamond is what you’re getting and this won’t be a problem if you’re shopping at a reputable jewellery store. The place of purchase is very important because you want to ensure it is a reliable and trustworthy shop who is a certified dealer that sells diamonds. These days, the internet makes it possible to buy whatever you need, including jewellery, but shopping online for a diamond can be tricky so be very careful and choose a certified website that will be able to provide you with what you need.

Take your time selecting the shape of your diamond because there are several options to choose from and you’re not limited to round or square. A certified jeweller will be able to show you a selection of shapes to help with your decision and the different options include oval, pear, heart, emerald, marquise and trillion, just to name a few. Once the shape of your diamond has been selected, you can then focus on clarity, which is a very important factor you must consider when purchasing a diamond. If inclusions are present, they will reduce the amount of sparkle that comes with the diamond along with the price. Every diamond is identified and graded according to a number and the types of inclusions they possess and this information should be presented to you clearly. A higher grade diamond will have very few inclusions and the price will be a lot more expensive when compared to a lower grade diamond. 

The cut is another aspect you must consider as this will reflect its sparkle. A diamond that is perfectly cut will be more beautiful and will sparkle a lot more. There are four categories, including excellent cut and poor cut, and a diamond that has a higher grade cut will be a good reflector of light and, therefore, more expensive. 

Lastly, always check for a certificate because all real diamonds come with one to prove trust and authenticity. A certificate will include the quality of the diamond as well as its clarity, colour, weight and validity.
