5 Tips on What To Look For When Buying Diamonds For Wedding Rings

A wedding, or an engagement in  Sekiu, is one of the most important events in every couple’s life. One of the best ways of making the experience memorable is by choosing the right ring to symbolize the love you have for one another. While most couples would like to get the most beautiful ring they can lay their hands on, budgetary restrictions can be a challenge. However, it is possible to find an ideal ring based on your budget.

For anyone looking for precious diamonds for engagement rings and wedding rings in Sekiu, they should consider going about the process carefully. There are various dealers in the market, some of who may sell you fake diamonds. Here are a few useful tips on what to look for when looking for precious diamonds for engagement or wedding rings.

Consider the Diamond Cut

1. Any expert will tell you that the cut is the most important thing to consider when buying diamonds in Sekiu. The main reason behind this is that the cut usually influences the sparkle. A diamond may be clear and feature a high quality color grade, but if the cut is poor, it may still appear dull. The dealer you buy from should be able to cut your diamond in the proper proportions. If your budget can allow it, choose a diamond with the highest cut grade.

Diamond Color

2.  Contrary to common belief, lack of color in your diamonds denotes a higher color grade. Some people go for pale yellow diamond, without knowing that it is low quality. To avoid such an experience, ask the diamond dealer to give you grade H or higher. Near colorless diamond ranges from grade G to J, but it may be quite expensive.

Clarity Diamonds can also be chosen based on their clarity levels.

3. This is usually not a very important factor to consider, considering that the precious stones usually come with imperfections, known as inclusions. These tiny imperfections may not be easy to detect, and they may only be seen through a microscope. However, the fewer there are, the higher the clarity grade of your diamonds. If your budget can be stretched further, consider buying grade VS1 grade or higher.

Consider the Diamond’s Carat Weight

4.  Unlike common belief, carat does not mean the size of the diamond, but its actual weight. Carat and cut must be considered side by side, because no matter the size of the diamond, a poor cut grade can make your precious stones look smaller. Another important fact to keep in mind is that the more the weight of the diamond, the more you will pay for it. Therefore, you should consider going for a less heavy stone with a high grade cut.

Ask for Proof of Certification

5. There is nothing as unfortunate as buying diamonds for your special event only to realize that they are of poor quality, or that they were stolen. To avoid such an eventuality, always ask the dealer in Sekiu to show you the copy of diamond certification.

With these tips, you should be able to make the right choice when buying precious diamonds in Sekiu for you engagement or wedding.

Sekiu How to Buy a Diamond And The 4 Biggest Mistakes When Buying a Diamond

In an ideal world with unlimited budgets and an infinite supply of diamonds, everyone would have beautifully cut "D Flawless" diamonds. In the real world every diamond is unique. There are plenty of gorgeous diamonds to go around - you just need to know how to find one. Choosing a diamond is about balancing several factors to make the most of your budget. Each factor contributes to the beauty and prestige of your diamond. I will explain these factors so you will be prepared to make an informed decision about your diamond purchase.

FACTOR 1: CARAT WEIGHT

People often use the word Carat when discussing how big a diamond is, however "Carat" actually refers to the weight of a diamond. There is no rule as to what carat weight you should buy, but you'll doubtless have heard that "bigger is better." If you ask me, I think bigger is great but you shouldn't forget about the other aspects of a diamond's quality.

A useful tip: if you're looking at Certified Diamonds, you may find it valuable to compare the diameters of different diamonds. Since every diamond is individually cut, some may appear larger than others of the same weight.

FACTOR 2: SHAPE

Approximately 75% of diamonds sold worldwide are Round Brilliants. Rounds diamonds are the most popular, most brilliant, and most expensive. If you are purchasing a diamond as a surprise, Round Brilliant is generally your safest bet.

There is no real hierarchy of shapes being better or worse - it is truly a matter of personal preference. Princess Cuts are the second most popular, and a classic alternative to round diamonds. Cushion Cuts are trendy and have a beautiful vintage look. If you want something different but not too crazy, try an Oval Cut, Asscher Cut, or Radiant Cut diamond.

While no shape is better, there are some significant differences between shapes. Take for example, the radiant cut vs the emerald cut. Though they are a similar shape, the extra facets of the radiant cut give it additional fire and sparkle. If you prefer the emerald cut's understated elegance, consider that it's easier to spot any imperfections and select a higher clarity grade.

Another tip: Diamonds (even round diamonds) may not be perfectly symmetrical. It's nothing to worry about if your diamond's width does not precisely match its height, but if your diamond is much longer than it is wide it may not be what you're expecting. This is especially the case in shapes like Cushion and Oval, where a more asymmetrical diamond might look "skinny", with much of the fire and brilliance concentrated at the ends.

FACTOR 3: CUT

"Cut" refers to a diamond's finish and proportions, and is critical in determining its beauty. Getting the angles right ensures a beautiful diamond that's full of life. In many cases it can be more difficult to spot flaws in a fiery, brilliant diamond. Cut is generally graded in five categories: Poor, Fair, Good, Very Good, and Excellent. Excellent is the highest graded awarded by GIA (whereas other labs may use terms like "ideal" or numbers like "0"). If you want to play safe, stick to "Very Good" and "Excellent" cuts when you choose your diamond.

FACTOR 4: CLARITY

Almost all diamonds have naturally¬ occurring features called "inclusions." Inclusions form as the diamond crystallizes deep underground, and they are unique to each diamond. They take many different forms, and can help you identify a diamond as your own. However, large and prominent inclusions can detract from the beauty of a diamond.

There are many different types of inclusions, and not all are created equal. If your diamond certificate has an "inclusion map," check where the inclusions are. Try to find a diamond with inclusions near the edge where they will be masked by sparkle or hidden by the setting of your diamond. If your budget is limited, I recommend buying "SI" clarity or better. "SI" stands for "Slightly Included." With close inspection you can usually spot the inclusions in an SI¬ graded diamond, but these inclusions will most likely not be visible once your diamond is set in jewellery. If you want to be sure your diamond will look "eye clean", even up close, I recommend selecting a VS2 clarity diamond or better. "VS" stands for "Very Slight Inclusion," and imperfections in VS clarity stones are rarely seen by the naked eye.

FACTOR 5: COLOUR

The term "colour" usually refers to how much warm tint is in a diamond. The scale ranges from D (colorless) to Z (very strongly tinted yellow or brown). Pure white diamonds are considered more desirable, and are more expensive. Warmer¬-hued diamonds (such as K, L, and M) are not necessarily less attractive, but they are significantly less valuable.

Conventional wisdom is to select J colour or better. Personally, I love G and H colour diamonds ¬- they hit the "sweet spot" where most people will not notice colour in the diamond unless they're doing a direct comparison. However, an I or J colour diamond that is well cut and has a lot of life can give you a beautiful diamond at a bargain price.

Depending on how they are cut, different diamonds will display colour differently. This is why colour grades are assigned by looking at a diamond upside¬down. Generally, more¬ brilliant diamonds show their colour less than less brilliant diamonds.

FACTOR 6: FLUORESCENCE

Fluorescence has a bad rep, and most of it is unfair. Diamond Fluorescence refers to how a diamond responds when subjected to ultra¬violet light. Fluorescent diamonds can glow any one of several colours, but the most common is blue. In rare cases fluorescence can cause your diamond to have a milky appearance when viewed in direct daylight. This is most often the case with strong or very strong fluorescence and D/E/F colour diamonds.

However, there are many, many more cases where blue fluorescence is a positive thing. Imagine you were shining a blue light on a yellow diamond... the blue tint can make your diamond look whiter. If your diamond falls in the "near colourless," "lightly tinted," or "tinted" range I recommend looking for medium blue or faint blue fluorescence.

Warning: Green, red, and yellow fluorescence are rare, and they will not have the same benefit. If you are interested in a diamond that has strong blue, very strong blue, green, red, or yellow fluorescence, I recommend asking your salesperson to show you your diamond outside in natural daylight. If you're buying online, contact the seller prior to making your purchase so they can examine the diamond first in natural daylight.

FACTOR 7: GRADER

This should always be your first question: Says who? Every diamond grading laboratory has different standards, so comparing diamonds graded by different sources is extremely unreliable. One grader might grade a diamond K SI2, and another might call that same diamond F VS2. I know that sounds crazy, but I see it happen all the time.

The most reputable and consistent grading laboratories are GIA, AGS, IGI, and HRD. GIA is considered the global standard worldwide. AGS is a popular alternative in the U.S.A. while IGI and HRD are more common in Europe.

EGL is tricky because there are EGL labs all over the world, and some of them do a great job while others can be less reliable. We strongly recommend caution when buying an EGL certified diamond unless it's from EGL-¬USA.

Many diamonds are assigned grades by valuation companies and in-¬house graders. If your diamond does not come with a report from a major laboratory, you should always ask where the grader trained. He or she should be certified by a major grading laboratory: GIA, AGS, IGI, or HRD. Be smart and be cautious about reports done by uncertified shop owners, salespeople, or valuation companies.

SELECTING YOUR DIAMOND

You can choose to purchase your diamond online, or from a retail store. If you prefer to purchase your diamond in a retail store, avoid the big chains and shop with smaller independent jewellers. Many independent jewellers are actually significantly less expensive than their large competitors. (You don't have to take my word for it - shop around and you'll quickly learn that this is true). This way you'll buy a better quality diamond and - if you wish - you'll have the opportunity to design your own hand-made engagement ring setting.

If you choose to shop online, I would recommend comparing prices and service across several websites. Be sure that the company ships from your country - otherwise you'll be hit with expensive duty and GST. Always make sure you call or e-mail customer service and have them hand-inspect your diamond before you complete your purchase. Sometimes a diamond may seem like a great deal, but it could have an unfortunate inclusion, asymmetrical cut, or be negatively impacted by fluoresence. And above all, make sure you have an easy and affordable way to return the diamond if it doesn't turn out as you'd hoped. Online shopping is the best way to get a great deal on a diamond for your engagement ring, diamond studs, or pendant - just review this article, be reasonably cautious, and have fun.

Sekiu How to Buy a Diamond And The 4 Biggest Mistakes When Buying a Diamond

To begin our attribute on various kinds of gemstones, we will certainly start with the very best and most popular gems of them all the diamond. The diamond is the ultimate gems. It has few weak points and also many strengths. It shines with its phenomenal worth and also emotional worth. It is used in wedding event rings to represent countless love or made use of as gifts/jewelry to be provided to liked ones. However the ruby is a lot greater than its eternal charm.

The ruby derives its name from the Greek work adamas indicating irresistible. In firmness, there is no contrast. The diamond prices in the Mohs scale a 10 which is the hardest compound on Planet. Its cutting resistance is 140 times that of the ruby as well as sapphire, the gemstones(Corundum) that are following in the Mohs scale in hardness. The ruby's optical properties such as gloss as well as rigidity make it distinct as well as conveniently differentiated from various other imitations. Delight in!

* Background of Diamonds

The very first tape-recorded ruby go back around 800 B.C. in India. Some think it also went back 6,000 years earlier. The rubies were made use of as attractive purposes as well as additionally as talismans to ward off evil as well as supply security in fight. During the Dark Ages, diamonds were also stated to be made use of as a clinical aid. Spiritual doctors even informed individuals that if they hold a ruby in a hand as well as make the indicator of the cross would certainly, it would certainly treat and disease and also recover wounds.

Rubies came to be a lot more prominent during the 19th century because of discovery of diamond down payments in South Africa. This discovery brings about enhanced supply, enhanced cutting as well as polishing methods, as well as growth in economic situation. In 1979, rock hounds discovered the Argyle pipeline in Australia which to this date is the wealthiest diamond deposit in the globe. Argyle, considering that then, alone is accountable for providing over one third of the world's diamonds yearly.

* Diamonds: Just how are they formed?

Diamonds contains an allotrope of carbons that are formed in high-pressure, high-temperature problems. Diamonds are generated 90 miles under the Earth's surface area at temperatures of concerning 2200 degrees Fahrenheit. Diamonds are formed deep within the planet and eventually, over very extended periods of time, press their method to the planet's surface area, generally through volcanic eruptions.

The age of these rubies from underneath the surface area of the earth are from 1 to 3.3 billion years of ages! When diamonds are formed as well as start their climb to the planet's surface area, they go through channels where the magma from the volcano increases to the surface, choosing up rubies in the process and also eventually transferring them on the surface area, where they are ultimately discovered and extracted.

* The 4 C's of Diamonds

There are four distinct qualities that identify the value as well as quality of a ruby. These are the color, cut, clearness and carat. Or else known as the 4 C's of a diamond. In the complying with, we will certainly speak about these features carefully.

* Shade

In the last newsletter, we touch based on the color of gems as being one of the most vital attribute because of the fact that shade is one of the most noticeable attribute. The best diamond ought to show up clear and also colorless yet this is not the case for all rubies. Diamonds could come in any shade of the rainbow most usual color is a shade of yellow or brownish. The Geological Institute of The U.S.A.(GIA) have created a guideline to grade ruby color. This standard contains a lettering system that ranges from the alphabet D - Z. Please see below:

D E F No Color G H I J Virtually Colorless K L M Faintly tinted, can't rarely be seen and generally yellow in shade N O P Q R Lightly tinted, generally yellow. Can be seen with the nude eye S T U V W X Y Z Tinted, begins with yellow as well as advances to brownish

* Clarity

The cut a diamond is figured out by the diamond's percentage such as its form, width as well as deepness. The cut establishes what is called the diamond's "luster". Even if the diamond itself has excellent shade and also quality, with an inadequate cut the diamond will have a boring radiance. This is due to the fact that the cut identifies how light journeys within the diamond. The Gemological Institute of America has actually likewise designed a clarity grading system to rank ruby clearness. This grading system consists of Perfect (Fl), Internally Perfect (IF), Really Extremely Somewhat Consisted Of (VV1 or VV2), Extremely Slightly Included(VS1 or VS2), A Little Consisted Of(SI1 or SI2), and Included(I1, I2, and I3). Although this system had actually been added to the ruby sector, it is not widely utilized. This results from that it took a great deal of technique and also training to incorporate it.

* Cut

The cut a ruby is identified by the ruby's percentage such as its shape, width and depth. The cut determines exactly what is called the diamond's "sparkle". Even if the ruby itself has excellent color as well as clearness, with an inadequate cut the diamond will certainly have a dull brilliance. This is because the cut determines how light journeys within the diamond.

There are 3 sorts of cuts that could figure out the diamond's sparkle. These are a superficial cut, a cut that is as well deep and optimal cut. A superficial cut is a cut of a diamond that is also low, that light traveling via it is lost on the base of the stone and does not come back right into view. This cut makes a ruby show up drab as well as dull. A cut that is too deep is a cut that is as well high, that light traveling through it gets away via the sides and dims the stone. A suitable cut is an excellent cut on a ruby that reflects light to the top of the rock, providing it perfect radiance.

* Carat weight

As mentioned on the last newsletter, a solitary carat(ct) evaluates about 200 milligrams or.2 grams. For smaller carat weight rubies that weigh less compared to a carat, it is shared as points (pt). Points are 1/100 of a carat. Carat weight of a ruby is essential as a result of the fact that larger diamonds are rarer than smaller sized ones, so primarily the bigger the ruby the much more costly it is. There is no basic grading system or layout that could reveal different carat weight. This is due to the fact that there are a lot of variants of rubies in form and cut, which makes stones of comparable weight, look different.

* Replica Diamonds

Considering that diamonds are one of the most useful and rarest of all the gemstones, initiatives have been made to replicate or perhaps enhance diamonds using cheaper choices. A lot of times, straightforward errors have actually been made and these choices or various other gemstones such as spinel were often perplexed with real diamonds. In some situations, some dishonest individuals aim to offer these alternatives to misfortunate buyers in order to profit. Listed below we will review regarding these choices as well as means to identify them.

* Artificial Diamonds

Synthetic diamonds are rubies that are grown manufactured in a laboratory. The first recognized cases of ruby synthesis were asserted to be recorded between 1879 - 1928, yet this was never ever verified. It wasn't up until the 1940's where study began in the United States, Sweden, Soviet Union started investigating. Synthetic diamonds are or else called High Pressure Heat (HPHT) diamonds or Chemical Vapor Down Payment (CVD) diamonds. The name of both these artificial diamonds stems from the processes used to create them. Some of these artificial diamonds can either have greater, lesser or comparable features compared to that of a ruby. Therefore, these artificial diamonds are utilized for abrasives, reducing and polishing tools, and switches in power stations.

* Simulants

Simulants are non-diamond materials that are utilized to reproduce the appearance or even the form of a ruby. One of the most basic as well as well known simulant is cubic zirconia (CZ). CZ at simple view can sparkle greater than a diamond as well as it is much less dense, indicating that a 1 carat weight CZ will be a lot bigger than a 1 carat weight diamond. Nowadays, an extra preferred simulant is moissanite, which has all the very same qualities of a ruby. These characteristics include solidity (Moissanite-9.25 as well as diamond-10 in Mohs range), refractive index(Moissanite -2.65 and ruby -2.42) and dispersion (Moissanite -.104 and also diamond -.044). This makes it difficult to differentiate both at plain view and would certainly usually need testers to tell the distinction. In the following section we will talk about how you can determine moissanites and other imitations.

* Genuine or Fake?

An old approach of determining diamonds is to do a scrape test. This requires scratching a ruby with one more diamond which is damaging and also is rarely used nowadays. The most effective and also most reputable method to check for rubies is to utilize testers that utilize thermal conductivity. These testers contain battery powered thermistors placed with a retracting copper suggestion. This tester functions by infusing the heat into the tested stone and after that the gadget gauges the quantity of warmth that it carries out. Nonetheless thermal conductivity testers functions best to distinguish rubies and its other simulants, it will not help differentiate laboratory created or synthetic stones. To be able to recognize these, certain optical strategies are required. Laboratories use techniques such as spectroscopy, microscopy and also luminescence in order to establish a certain rocks origin. The typical individual could use loupes as well as microscopic lens to distinguish artificial rocks. Natural rubies normally have small blemishes as well as flaws such as inclusions or some type of international product, which will certainly not be discovered in synthetics.

Ways To Buy Diamonds When Getting Wholesale.

Sekiu

Not all vendors give diamond grading laboratory records (also known as diamond high quality reports) to their customers. So my basic advice to you is to maintain your money in your pocket when taking care of such jewelers.

Only buy a diamond engagement ring if it has the initial ruby high quality report.

A laboratory record is an independent examination of the 4Cs of a loosened ruby and includes a plotted representation of the rock's quality attributes as well as a visuals depiction of the rock's proportions. Having such a record enables you to contrast diamonds of different high qualities and also ultimately helps you make an even more notified getting choice.

A seller may reduce edges as well as not provide a laboratory record or a dishonest seller might give a phony one due to the time, difficulty and cost he'll birth to obtaining a stone rated.

Yeah - there is a price for grading a diamond (though that price is eventually paid by the customer), plus the delivery and also insurance coverage costs for sending out the ruby to the lab. And allow us not fail to remember the possibility expense of a jeweler not having the ruby in his store offer for sale for a few weeks while the grading takes area.

However, a diamond grading record could additionally not be available due to the fact that the prices to obtaining one may influence also heavily on the final rate of the ring. For instance, a 0.3 ct diamond ring costing $250 state, may set you back around $75 to be rated and have the report number inscribed on the band on the diamond. As you look for that excellent ruby engagement ring for your sweetheart, you'll discover that there is a hodgepodge of laboratories claiming to offer reputable diamond rating reports. But I would just put my loan on ...

The Premier Diamond Grading Lab Information

Yes, all ruby high quality reports are not developed equal. Within the market, it is an agreement that the two top labs are GIA-GTL (Gemological Institute of The U.S.A.'s Gem Profession Laboratory) as well as the AGS (American Gem Culture Laboratories).

The GCAL (Gem Qualification and also Assurance Laboratory) additionally provides extremely concerned reports or "diamond certificates" as they are referred to by GCAL. The GIA has the strongest worldwide online reputation for independence and consistency. As a result of their continuous shade and clearness strictness guidelines, the globe's biggest and also most pricey diamonds have actually been sent out there for rating decades. In 2006, GIA-GTL added a two-dimensional cut grading system for rounded fantastic rubies.

AGS uses the most strict cut requirements in the industry. It makes use of a three-dimensional light performance metric that could grade numerous diamond forms. In fact, it is the only cut grading system that is recognized by the clinical community.

What is even more, its Diamond Top quality Record utilizes a special and exclusive 0 to 10 grading system to evaluate the 4 Cs - a system which is less complicated to comprehend compared to GIA's grading system. In fact, AGS even goes the additional step by relating their 0-10 score scale to other types of score. As an example, the conventional VS1 diamond clearness score is a 3 on the AGS Diamond Top Quality Document.

Diamond Reporting - The Drawbacks

1. Ruby grading is not standardized or controlled and hence you might stumble upon rate 2 laboratories that use looser standards to the rate 1 grading labs discussed above. If you purchase a diamond that has been graded by a rate 2 lab, you might wind up paying more for a minimal high quality diamond. So as an example, a ruby ranked a "F" in shade at a rate 2 laboratory might obtain a G, H, or lower color score at an extra trustworthy laboratory. The market additionally marks down diamonds graded by minimal known labs by about 15-30% or more. So either you just buy a ruby graded by a tier 1 lab or you approve that you could be purchasing a lesser top quality ruby than what is specified on the report if that diamond is rated by a lower well-known laboratory.

2. Several large chain stores have huge agreements with lesser known labs with "softer" diamond grading guidelines. Several of these softer labs put "recommended substitute values" on the lab reports - worths which are greater compared to what stores means offer the rubies for. So a salesperson in a chain shop might state to you, "Take a look at the lot you are getting here. We are marketing you this diamond engagement ring for $2500 yet the report says that the recommended substitute worth is $4000." Wow - exactly what an offer - NOT! This is why it is much better that you trust just independent rate 1 labs.

Also remember that reliable diamond rating records are not assessments and do not provide evaluation figures. Ruby appraisals are commonly grossly inflated as well as are not something you'll intend to rely upon.

3. Ruby reports are filled with please notes that define that nothing is "licensed" or assured as well as that the labs are not accountable for mistakes. Actually, the GIA supplies a please note of kinds on their site regarding the usage of words "license." The website states:

"It is incorrect to state that pupils, grads, their organisations, or particular gemstones are "licensed" by GIA. The Gemological Institute of America does not certify anyone or anything. Neither a student neither a grad that has actually been granted a certificate or diploma, neither a gem which has actually been rated or identified by GIA has been accredited by GIA".

So it is feasible that you the consumer is left holding the bag must a mistake in a report is later discovered. Courts have regularly ruled that sellers, not laboratories, are in charge of such errors. Why? Due to the fact that the labs showed beforehand that their records couldn't be held accountable.

Thankfully, there are a couple methods to give on your own a lot more purchaser protection:

A. You might fly to India where jewelers provide a life time buyback policy to their consumers. Too expensive to fly?

B. You might find among the 20% of US jewelers who market completely bonded diamonds. These are rubies that are marketed with life time breakage, lifetime trade-in and also lifetime buyback plans.

C. Not as great a solution as purchasing a totally adhered ruby but you might purchase a ruby that has a real "certification" and also not a report. "Licensed rubies do come with warranties" albeit for much shorter periods.

Qualification Some vendors describe a "diamond record" as a "certified ruby" yet technically this is not remedy. From a lawful perspective, a diamond report is a simply an experienced point of view though in reality, facets of a diamond grading report are not just point of views.

For example, a ruby's carat (weight) could be accurately figured out in addition to its cut grade by gauging its optical performance or by referring to a computer system version. A certification on the other hand is a declaration of reality - a file for which the provider accepts lawful responsibility and will make restitution to the customer for errors.

Some leading ruby grading labs offer both records and also certifications. AGS uses Ruby Top quality Documents (non-certified reports) as well as Ruby High quality Certificates. Ruby Top quality Certifications are ready solely for AGS retail jewelry experts and also offers guaranties from taking part American Treasure Society member shops.

GCAL certifies it's diamond grading likewise. Its 100% money-back assurance policy is valid for a period of two years from the date on the relevant certificate. This policy ensures the accuracy of the cut, shade and also quality qualities and the carat weight.

5 Tips on What To Look For When Buying Diamonds For Wedding Rings

A wedding, or an engagement in  Sekiu, is one of the most important events in every couple’s life. One of the best ways of making the experience memorable is by choosing the right ring to symbolize the love you have for one another. While most couples would like to get the most beautiful ring they can lay their hands on, budgetary restrictions can be a challenge. However, it is possible to find an ideal ring based on your budget.

For anyone looking for precious diamonds for engagement rings and wedding rings in Sekiu, they should consider going about the process carefully. There are various dealers in the market, some of who may sell you fake diamonds. Here are a few useful tips on what to look for when looking for precious diamonds for engagement or wedding rings.

Consider the Diamond Cut

1. Any expert will tell you that the cut is the most important thing to consider when buying diamonds in Sekiu. The main reason behind this is that the cut usually influences the sparkle. A diamond may be clear and feature a high quality color grade, but if the cut is poor, it may still appear dull. The dealer you buy from should be able to cut your diamond in the proper proportions. If your budget can allow it, choose a diamond with the highest cut grade.

Diamond Color

2.  Contrary to common belief, lack of color in your diamonds denotes a higher color grade. Some people go for pale yellow diamond, without knowing that it is low quality. To avoid such an experience, ask the diamond dealer to give you grade H or higher. Near colorless diamond ranges from grade G to J, but it may be quite expensive.

Clarity Diamonds can also be chosen based on their clarity levels.

3. This is usually not a very important factor to consider, considering that the precious stones usually come with imperfections, known as inclusions. These tiny imperfections may not be easy to detect, and they may only be seen through a microscope. However, the fewer there are, the higher the clarity grade of your diamonds. If your budget can be stretched further, consider buying grade VS1 grade or higher.

Consider the Diamond’s Carat Weight

4.  Unlike common belief, carat does not mean the size of the diamond, but its actual weight. Carat and cut must be considered side by side, because no matter the size of the diamond, a poor cut grade can make your precious stones look smaller. Another important fact to keep in mind is that the more the weight of the diamond, the more you will pay for it. Therefore, you should consider going for a less heavy stone with a high grade cut.

Ask for Proof of Certification

5. There is nothing as unfortunate as buying diamonds for your special event only to realize that they are of poor quality, or that they were stolen. To avoid such an eventuality, always ask the dealer in Sekiu to show you the copy of diamond certification.

With these tips, you should be able to make the right choice when buying precious diamonds in Sekiu for you engagement or wedding.

The Big 4 Cs For Loose Diamonds

Sekiu

Rubies are naturally offered in a very variety of colors. The majority of people learn about anemic diamonds and also GIA's color grading system that is used to identify a diamond's body shade ... you recognize D, E, F, and so on. This shade grading system is only utilized to categorize one of the most common ruby body color of yellow however anytime a diamond is discovered in one more color like pink, blue, environment-friendly, and so on; then this ruby is described as a "" fancy diamond"".

Natural Fancy diamonds could be really costly as well as often times more costly compared to a similar dimension colorless diamond. An excellent example of a Fancy diamond is the well known 45.52 carat weight fancy deep blue ruby, the Hope Diamond, which gets on screen in the Smithsonian Natural Background Gallery in Washington, DC.

A color improved ruby is a 100% all-natural diamond that has had its color altered. And most importantly, shade enhanced diamonds come in an extremely broad option of shades at extremely budget friendly rates!

A bit of background- For lots of, several years it has been popular that a diamond's shade could be "" boosted"" by placing a little tinted material externally of a diamond and also similar to magic ... a ruby that had a recognizable yellow-colored color would alter to an extra appealing near anemic diamond. Sadly, this sort of color enhanced ruby could transform back to its original body shade if this colored material was inadvertently removed. In more current years, the innovation of shade boosted rubies has gone exceptionally high tech. It is currently feasible to entirely alter the color of a diamond! These processes are taken into consideration permanent due to the fact that it does stay steady when exposed to everyday normal problems. The shade will not discolor if subjected to sunlight or be cleaned off by severe chemicals.

Exactly how is it done? The wanted result of any one of these therapies is to have an extra valuable ruby. A much less valuable diamond would be a ruby that has a low body shade or occasionally a lower clearness. The shade boosted ruby treatment business know if they start off with a particular kind of ruby as well as procedure it for a specific amount of time that they must end up with a certain color yet it does not constantly work this way. This is a science that does need some art in their procedures ... the only process that provides regular results is the layer procedure.

The 3 processes are as adheres to- Process # 1- HPHT Color Enhanced Diamonds- High Stress/ Heat (HPHT) treatment could enhance the color of certain sorts of brownish rubies and hence boost their value. General Electric has actually created a procedure that virtually is a mechanical simulation of a ruby's development in nature. The shade boosted ruby will be warmed up to an extremely heat under an extremely high, maintained pressure. Faults in the crystal framework are after that rearranged causing a modification of the ruby's shade. Due to the fact that the problems of HPHT are extremely much like diamond's original formation, just a well furnished laboratory will certainly have the ability to favorably determine this sort of color boosted diamond. HPHT wased initially made use of to transform yellow-colored diamonds into more marketable fancy tinted improved diamonds, but now it is likewise utilized to transform some undesirable brown rubies right into more preferable colorless colored boosted rubies.

Process # 2- Irradiated Color Boosted Diamonds- OK ... do not start obtaining all delighted because you saw the word irradiated! This is a 100% secure procedure that is really just like what is made use of to preserve food by exposing it to a stream of Gamma rays. The color improved diamond process is performed in a number of various means however the outcomes are all the same. You begin with a low color (P, Q, R, and so on) 100% natural diamond that has actually currently been reduced and also polished, after that it is subjected to a stream of rapid electrons. During this part of the process the ruby will certainly resort to an extremely dark color because a few of the atoms in the diamond's crystal structure have now been disjointed and this consequently has actually affected the means light passes via the ruby. Next the diamond experiences a controlled heating (annealing) process, this allows some of those atoms to move (partially fixed) in order to acquire a desired color.

Process # 3- Covered Color Boosted Diamonds- The layer on polished diamonds describes a slim fabricated layer that alters the color of the diamond. The coating can either be of the desired color or can trigger a colored interference-effect. However in some cases this procedure is done to deceive a customer. It is a fairly easy process to execute, it has been around for lots of years (although the finishes products are far better now), and also it does not call for a great deal of expensive high technology devices. Recently, I have actually seen some pink covered diamonds on the market, they are extremely attractive ... as well as of program you would certainly have to acquire them knowing that they have actually been layered as well as follow your jeweler's guidelines regarding having and taking care of these shade improved rubies. The covering can be applied to the entire of a ruby's surface, just all-time low of the diamond, or to a narrow zone near the band. A well-applied finishing can alter the color by one or more color grade. Some finishings can be gotten rid of through steaming in acid, solid cleansing options, or perhaps home chemicals. Occasionally dots or larger locations of purple or blue ink are painted on the diamond to help combat a yellow-colored shade. The ruby's setup will normally cover the dots, so they are hard to see in a placed stone.

So, is a shade enhanced ruby right for you? Maybe ... all-natural elegant shade rubies could be stunning however they are pricey! Color boosted diamonds are inexpensive as well as allow many individuals to have a brilliantly tinted ruby. Ask your regional jewelry expert if they have any Fancy diamonds ... either all-natural or color boosted rubies. It is constantly interesting, as well as fun, to consider something different!

Under typical wear the irradiated as well as HPHT color boosted diamonds will certainly have no worry of the shade fading away. The only consideration will be when you require to have any type of kind of service done on the item of fashion jewelry. If this kind of shade enhanced ruby is exposed to too much quantities of warm it might influence the shade. The jeweler will should understand that the ruby is a color enhanced diamond prior to any work is done and after that the jeweler will certainly be able to pick the most effective strategy. Shade boosted rubies are now also utilized as the little accent diamonds around a larger anemic ruby. There are numerous exciting items of fashion jewelry offered with small blue, yellow, black, or eco-friendly shade enhanced rubies.

Currently that you know concerning shade boosted diamonds as well as somebody attempts to sell you on what they call an all-natural elegant tinted ruby yet it goes to a very deal rate ... you will recognize that something just does not appear best regarding the deal. A record from a reputable grading laboratory should go along with 100% natural Fancy colored rubies that are marketed as natural. If you deal with a reputable business and also you have actually been comforted concerning what you are getting, then you will certainly lessen the possibility of something poor occurring to you. Just like any circumstance including an expensive purchase of something that not many people are experienceded in, education must be an important part of your plan. This is much more crucial if you plan to purchase a shade enhanced ruby. Bud Boland has remained in the precious jewelry business for 40 years as well as has done every little thing from watchmaking, ruby setup, precious jewelry production, as well as has been a Jeweler for nearly 35 years. He is a Grad Jeweler from GIA (Gemological Institute of The U.S.A.), which is additionally the location where he was an Instructor.

Sekiu How to Buy a Diamond And The 4 Biggest Mistakes When Buying a Diamond

In an ideal world with unlimited budgets and an infinite supply of diamonds, everyone would have beautifully cut "D Flawless" diamonds. In the real world every diamond is unique. There are plenty of gorgeous diamonds to go around - you just need to know how to find one. Choosing a diamond is about balancing several factors to make the most of your budget. Each factor contributes to the beauty and prestige of your diamond. I will explain these factors so you will be prepared to make an informed decision about your diamond purchase.

FACTOR 1: CARAT WEIGHT

People often use the word Carat when discussing how big a diamond is, however "Carat" actually refers to the weight of a diamond. There is no rule as to what carat weight you should buy, but you'll doubtless have heard that "bigger is better." If you ask me, I think bigger is great but you shouldn't forget about the other aspects of a diamond's quality.

A useful tip: if you're looking at Certified Diamonds, you may find it valuable to compare the diameters of different diamonds. Since every diamond is individually cut, some may appear larger than others of the same weight.

FACTOR 2: SHAPE

Approximately 75% of diamonds sold worldwide are Round Brilliants. Rounds diamonds are the most popular, most brilliant, and most expensive. If you are purchasing a diamond as a surprise, Round Brilliant is generally your safest bet.

There is no real hierarchy of shapes being better or worse - it is truly a matter of personal preference. Princess Cuts are the second most popular, and a classic alternative to round diamonds. Cushion Cuts are trendy and have a beautiful vintage look. If you want something different but not too crazy, try an Oval Cut, Asscher Cut, or Radiant Cut diamond.

While no shape is better, there are some significant differences between shapes. Take for example, the radiant cut vs the emerald cut. Though they are a similar shape, the extra facets of the radiant cut give it additional fire and sparkle. If you prefer the emerald cut's understated elegance, consider that it's easier to spot any imperfections and select a higher clarity grade.

Another tip: Diamonds (even round diamonds) may not be perfectly symmetrical. It's nothing to worry about if your diamond's width does not precisely match its height, but if your diamond is much longer than it is wide it may not be what you're expecting. This is especially the case in shapes like Cushion and Oval, where a more asymmetrical diamond might look "skinny", with much of the fire and brilliance concentrated at the ends.

FACTOR 3: CUT

"Cut" refers to a diamond's finish and proportions, and is critical in determining its beauty. Getting the angles right ensures a beautiful diamond that's full of life. In many cases it can be more difficult to spot flaws in a fiery, brilliant diamond. Cut is generally graded in five categories: Poor, Fair, Good, Very Good, and Excellent. Excellent is the highest graded awarded by GIA (whereas other labs may use terms like "ideal" or numbers like "0"). If you want to play safe, stick to "Very Good" and "Excellent" cuts when you choose your diamond.

FACTOR 4: CLARITY

Almost all diamonds have naturally¬ occurring features called "inclusions." Inclusions form as the diamond crystallizes deep underground, and they are unique to each diamond. They take many different forms, and can help you identify a diamond as your own. However, large and prominent inclusions can detract from the beauty of a diamond.

There are many different types of inclusions, and not all are created equal. If your diamond certificate has an "inclusion map," check where the inclusions are. Try to find a diamond with inclusions near the edge where they will be masked by sparkle or hidden by the setting of your diamond. If your budget is limited, I recommend buying "SI" clarity or better. "SI" stands for "Slightly Included." With close inspection you can usually spot the inclusions in an SI¬ graded diamond, but these inclusions will most likely not be visible once your diamond is set in jewellery. If you want to be sure your diamond will look "eye clean", even up close, I recommend selecting a VS2 clarity diamond or better. "VS" stands for "Very Slight Inclusion," and imperfections in VS clarity stones are rarely seen by the naked eye.

FACTOR 5: COLOUR

The term "colour" usually refers to how much warm tint is in a diamond. The scale ranges from D (colorless) to Z (very strongly tinted yellow or brown). Pure white diamonds are considered more desirable, and are more expensive. Warmer¬-hued diamonds (such as K, L, and M) are not necessarily less attractive, but they are significantly less valuable.

Conventional wisdom is to select J colour or better. Personally, I love G and H colour diamonds ¬- they hit the "sweet spot" where most people will not notice colour in the diamond unless they're doing a direct comparison. However, an I or J colour diamond that is well cut and has a lot of life can give you a beautiful diamond at a bargain price.

Depending on how they are cut, different diamonds will display colour differently. This is why colour grades are assigned by looking at a diamond upside¬down. Generally, more¬ brilliant diamonds show their colour less than less brilliant diamonds.

FACTOR 6: FLUORESCENCE

Fluorescence has a bad rep, and most of it is unfair. Diamond Fluorescence refers to how a diamond responds when subjected to ultra¬violet light. Fluorescent diamonds can glow any one of several colours, but the most common is blue. In rare cases fluorescence can cause your diamond to have a milky appearance when viewed in direct daylight. This is most often the case with strong or very strong fluorescence and D/E/F colour diamonds.

However, there are many, many more cases where blue fluorescence is a positive thing. Imagine you were shining a blue light on a yellow diamond... the blue tint can make your diamond look whiter. If your diamond falls in the "near colourless," "lightly tinted," or "tinted" range I recommend looking for medium blue or faint blue fluorescence.

Warning: Green, red, and yellow fluorescence are rare, and they will not have the same benefit. If you are interested in a diamond that has strong blue, very strong blue, green, red, or yellow fluorescence, I recommend asking your salesperson to show you your diamond outside in natural daylight. If you're buying online, contact the seller prior to making your purchase so they can examine the diamond first in natural daylight.

FACTOR 7: GRADER

This should always be your first question: Says who? Every diamond grading laboratory has different standards, so comparing diamonds graded by different sources is extremely unreliable. One grader might grade a diamond K SI2, and another might call that same diamond F VS2. I know that sounds crazy, but I see it happen all the time.

The most reputable and consistent grading laboratories are GIA, AGS, IGI, and HRD. GIA is considered the global standard worldwide. AGS is a popular alternative in the U.S.A. while IGI and HRD are more common in Europe.

EGL is tricky because there are EGL labs all over the world, and some of them do a great job while others can be less reliable. We strongly recommend caution when buying an EGL certified diamond unless it's from EGL-¬USA.

Many diamonds are assigned grades by valuation companies and in-¬house graders. If your diamond does not come with a report from a major laboratory, you should always ask where the grader trained. He or she should be certified by a major grading laboratory: GIA, AGS, IGI, or HRD. Be smart and be cautious about reports done by uncertified shop owners, salespeople, or valuation companies.

SELECTING YOUR DIAMOND

You can choose to purchase your diamond online, or from a retail store. If you prefer to purchase your diamond in a retail store, avoid the big chains and shop with smaller independent jewellers. Many independent jewellers are actually significantly less expensive than their large competitors. (You don't have to take my word for it - shop around and you'll quickly learn that this is true). This way you'll buy a better quality diamond and - if you wish - you'll have the opportunity to design your own hand-made engagement ring setting.

If you choose to shop online, I would recommend comparing prices and service across several websites. Be sure that the company ships from your country - otherwise you'll be hit with expensive duty and GST. Always make sure you call or e-mail customer service and have them hand-inspect your diamond before you complete your purchase. Sometimes a diamond may seem like a great deal, but it could have an unfortunate inclusion, asymmetrical cut, or be negatively impacted by fluoresence. And above all, make sure you have an easy and affordable way to return the diamond if it doesn't turn out as you'd hoped. Online shopping is the best way to get a great deal on a diamond for your engagement ring, diamond studs, or pendant - just review this article, be reasonably cautious, and have fun.
