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

A wedding, or an engagement in  Reston, 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 Reston, 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 Reston. 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 Reston 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 Reston for you engagement or wedding.

Reston 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.

Additionally, if you desire a colored stone yet do not require a diamond, emerald greens, sapphires, as well as rubies make fantastic choices for engagement rings and are far less costly compared to mined colored rubies.

Environment-friendly involvement rings are also among the most effective involvement rings of 2018. With more people worried concerning the setting as well as concerning the civils rights issues that surround standard diamond mining, even more people are seeking alternatives to conventional interaction rings. One opportunity is to buy an engagement ring that has a ruby that was mined in Canada rather than South Africa. Canada doesn't have the exact same human civil liberties concerns revolving around its ruby market, so it's taken into consideration to be a lot more pleasant to the world. Conversely, buying a manufactured diamond ring is likewise taken into consideration to be a lot more "green" because not only does it not have the very same civils rights issues that mined rubies do, but it does not ruin the planet like mining for diamonds tends to do. Conversely, the best interaction rings of 2018 consist of antique involvement rings considering that the greenest engagement rings are those that are reused and also recycled. By acquiring an engagement ring that is antique, you are not contributing to the new ruby ring market or the destruction of the atmosphere.

Network established ruby rings are likewise on the list of ideal interaction rings of 2018.

Channel established rings are especially ideal due to the fact that the rubies are shielded from being harmed due to the fact that you could not get to the stone to chip them. Even much more prominent are channel set ruby rings constructed of platinum, which has just recently grown in appeal.

What You Should Know When Buying a Diamond Ring

Reston

Rubies are naturally offered in an extremely wide variety of colors. Lots of people understand about colorless rubies and also GIA's color grading system that is made use of to identify a ruby's body shade ... you know D, E, F, and so on. This color grading system is only utilized to categorize the most common ruby body shade of yellow nonetheless anytime a ruby is discovered in an additional shade like pink, blue, eco-friendly, and so on; then this ruby is referred to as a "" elegant diamond"".

All-natural Fancy rubies could be really expensive as well as lot of times more costly than a similar size colorless diamond. An excellent example of a Fancy diamond is the well known 45.52 carat expensive deep blue diamond, the Hope Ruby, which gets on display in the Smithsonian Natural Background Museum in Washington, DC.

A shade boosted diamond is a 100% all-natural ruby that has actually had its color changed. And also best of all, color boosted diamonds been available in a very vast choice of shades at extremely budget friendly costs!

A little bit of history- For several, lots of years it has actually been well recognized that a ruby's shade might be "" enhanced"" by putting a little bit of tinted material on the surface of a ruby and just like magic ... a ruby that had a recognizable yellow-colored shade would certainly alter to an extra appealing near colorless ruby. Unfortunately, this type of color enhanced diamond might alter back to its original body color if this tinted material was unintentionally removed. In more current years, the modern technology of color boosted diamonds has actually gone very high tech. It is currently feasible to entirely change the color of a diamond! These procedures are considered permanent since it does stay steady when revealed to daily typical conditions. The shade will certainly not fade if exposed to sunlight or be washed off by harsh chemicals.

Exactly how is it done? The wanted outcome of any one of these therapies is to have an extra marketable ruby. A less valuable ruby would be a diamond that has a reduced body shade or occasionally a reduced clarity. The color improved diamond treatment companies know if they begin with a particular kind of diamond and also procedure it for a specific amount of time that they need to wind up with a specific color yet it does not always function that method. This is a science that does require some art in their processes ... the only process that offers consistent results is the finish process.

The 3 procedures are as adheres to- Refine # 1- HPHT Color Boosted Diamonds- High Stress/ Heat (HPHT) therapy could boost the color of specific sorts of brown diamonds and also therefore enhance their worth. General Electric has actually created a process that basically is a mechanical simulation of a ruby's development in nature. The shade improved diamond will certainly be heated up to an extremely heat under a really high, supported pressure. Mistakes in the crystal structure are then repositioned leading to a change of the diamond's color. Because the problems of HPHT are very much like diamond's original development, only a well geared up lab will be able to positively determine this type of shade enhanced diamond. HPHT wased initially used to turn yellowish rubies right into even more marketable fancy tinted boosted rubies, now it is additionally used to change some unpopular brownish rubies into preferred colorless colored improved rubies.

Process # 2- Irradiated Color Improved Diamonds- OK ... do not begin getting all excited since you saw words irradiated! This is a 100% safe process that is very similar to exactly what is used to protect food by subjecting it to a stream of Gamma rays. The color boosted ruby process is done in several various ways but the results are all the very same. You start with a reduced shade (P, Q, R, etc.) 100% natural diamond that has already been reduced as well as polished, then it is subjected to a stream of fast electrons. Throughout this component of the process the ruby will look to a very dark color due to the fact that several of the atoms in the diamond's crystal framework have now been dislocated as well as this then has actually affected the way light travel through the diamond. Next the ruby undergoes a controlled home heating (annealing) process, this permits some of those atoms to relocate (partially fixed) in order to acquire a wanted shade.

Refine # 3- Covered Color Improved Diamonds- The finish on polished rubies describes a thin man-made layer that changes the color of the ruby. The finishing can either be of the desired shade or could create a colored interference-effect. Sadly in some cases this process is done to deceive a customer. It is a fairly simple process to perform, it has been around for lots of years (although the finishings materials are better currently), and also it does not need a great deal of expensive advanced devices. Just recently, I've seen some pink coated diamonds on the marketplace, they are extremely attractive ... and also certainly you would certainly have to buy them recognizing that they have actually been covered and also follow your jewelry expert's standards about owning as well as looking after these shade improved diamonds. The layer can be applied to the entire of a diamond's surface, just all-time low of the diamond, or to a slim zone near the girdle. A well-applied coating could transform the color by several shade quality. Some coverings could be removed through boiling in acid, solid cleaning services, or perhaps house chemicals. In some cases dots or bigger locations of purple or blue ink are paintinged on the ruby to assist combat a yellowish shade. The ruby's setting will typically cover the dots, so they are tough to see in an installed stone.

So, is a color improved diamond right for you? Perhaps ... natural elegant shade diamonds can be attractive yet they are costly! Color improved rubies are economical and allow lots of people to possess a brilliantly colored ruby. Ask your neighborhood jeweler if they have any kind of Fancy rubies ... either natural or color enhanced diamonds. It is always interesting, and also fun, to take a look at something various!

Under regular wear the irradiated as well as HPHT shade enhanced rubies will certainly have no issues of the color fading away. The only factor to consider will certainly be when you should have any kind of type of service done on the item of precious jewelry. If this kind of color enhanced diamond is subjected to extreme amounts of heat it may influence the shade. The jeweler will should understand that the diamond is a shade enhanced diamond prior to any kind of work is done and after that the jeweler will have the ability to determine on the very best strategy. Shade improved diamonds are now also used as the small accent diamonds around a bigger colorless ruby. There are many exciting pieces of fashion jewelry available with small blue, yellow, black, or green shade improved rubies.

Now that you understand about color improved diamonds and also someone attempts to market you on exactly what they call an all-natural fancy tinted ruby yet it is at an extremely bargain cost ... you will certainly know that something simply does not seem best concerning the deal. A record from a recognized grading lab should go along with 100% natural Fancy tinted diamonds that are marketed as natural. If you take care of a reliable firm and you have been guaranteed concerning exactly what you are buying, after that you will decrease the opportunity of something bad taking place to you. Just like any kind of situation including an expensive acquisition of something that very few people are well versed in, education and learning should be a vital part of your strategy. This is even more crucial if you intend to buy a color improved diamond.

The age of these rubies from beneath the surface area of the earth are from 1 to 3.3 billion years of ages! When diamonds are formed and also begin their climb to the earth's surface, they go through channels where the magma from the volcano rises to the surface, getting diamonds along the way as well as ultimately transferring them externally, where they are ultimately located as well as extracted.

There are four distinct attributes that identify the worth and also high quality of a ruby. These are the shade, cut, quality and carat. Or else referred to as the 4 C's of a diamond. In the adhering to, we will certainly talk about these attributes carefully.

* Shade

In the last newsletter, we touch based on the shade of gemstones as being the most important feature because of the reality that color is one of the most obvious feature. The ideal diamond must appear clear and anemic however this is not the case for all diamonds. Rubies can come in any type of shade of the rainbow most common color is a color of yellow or brownish.

* Clearness

The cut a diamond is figured out by the diamond's proportion such as its shape, width as well as depth. The cut identifies what is called the diamond's "radiance". Even if the ruby itself has ideal shade and quality, with a poor cut the diamond will have a dull sparkle. This is because the cut figures out just how light travels within the ruby. The Gemological Institute of The U.S.A. has likewise created a clarity grading system to rate diamond quality. This grading system consists of Flawless (Fl), Inside Perfect (IF), Really Very A Little Consisted Of (VV1 or VV2), Really Slightly Included(VS1 or VS2), A Little Included(SI1 or SI2), and Consisted Of(I1, I2, as well as I3). Although this system had been added to the diamond industry, it is not extensively utilized. This results from the fact that it took a whole lot of method and also training to integrate it.

* Cut

The cut a ruby is figured out by the ruby's proportion such as its shape, size and also depth. The cut determines just what is called the ruby's "radiance". Also if the diamond itself has perfect color and also quality, with a poor cut the ruby will certainly have a boring sparkle. This is due to the fact that the cut establishes how light trips within the diamond.

There are 3 sorts of cuts that can establish the diamond's sparkle. These are a shallow cut, a cut that is also deep as well as optimal cut. A shallow cut is a cut of a diamond that is as well low, that light taking a trip via it is lost under of the rock as well as does not return right into sight. This cut makes a diamond appear drab and boring. A cut that is unfathomable is a cut that is also high, that light traveling through it leaves through the sides as well as darkens the rock. An optimal cut is a perfect cut on a ruby that mirrors light to the top of the stone, providing it ideal sparkle.

* Carat weight

As specified on the last newsletter, a solitary carat(ct) considers regarding 200 milligrams or.2 grams. For smaller carat diamonds that evaluate much less compared to a carat, it is expressed as factors (pt). Factors are 1/100 of a carat weight. Carat weight of a diamond is necessary because of that bigger rubies are rarer than smaller ones, so generally the bigger the diamond the much more expensive it is. There is no conventional grading system or representation that can reveal various carat weight. This is since there are a lot of variants of rubies fit and also cut, which makes stones of comparable weight, look various.

* Imitation Diamonds

Given that rubies are one of the most beneficial and also rarest of all the gemstones, initiatives have been made to duplicate or also enhance diamonds using cheaper alternatives. A whole lot of times, straightforward blunders have been made as well as these options or other gems such as spinel were occasionally perplexed with genuine rubies.

A few of these synthetic rubies might either have greater, lower or comparable characteristics than that of a diamond. For that reason, these synthetic diamonds are used for abrasives, cutting and also polishing tools, as well as changes in power terminals.

* Simulants

Simulants are non-diamond materials that are made use of to reproduce the appearance as well as the form of a diamond. One of the most standard and popular simulant is cubic zirconia (CZ). CZ at ordinary view could sparkle greater than a ruby as well as also it is less thick, suggesting that a 1 carat weight CZ will be a lot larger than a 1 carat weight ruby. Nowadays, an extra prominent simulant is moissanite, which has just the same attributes of a diamond.

The best and also most trustworthy method to evaluate for diamonds is to make use of testers that utilize thermal conductivity. These testers are composed of battery powered thermistors placed with a retractable copper pointer. This tester works by infusing the heat onto the tested stone then the gadget measures the amount of warmth that it carries out. Nonetheless thermal conductivity testers functions best to distinguish diamonds and also its various other simulants, it will certainly not help distinguish lab created or artificial rocks. To be able to recognize these, particular optical techniques are required. Laboratories use methods such as spectroscopy, microscopy as well as luminescence in order to identify a specific rocks origin. The average person could make use of loupes as well as microscopes to distinguish synthetic stones. All-natural rubies usually have small flaws and flaws such as additions or some type of international material, which will certainly not be discovered in synthetics.

Rating Rubies in the Harsh!

Just how are diamond cut qualities assigned?

This is where things begin to obtain complicated. The techniques utilized to quantitatively analyze the top quality of a cut vary. The method the GIA identifies what a ruby's cut grade must be, for example, varies in really specific methods from the means other certifiers like the AGS do it. For the most parts, these organizations do not reveal the precise details of the procedures they make use of.

The form of a diamond additionally makes a difference with regard to exactly how its cut quality is figured out. Although there are some basic standards that stay the very same for any kind of diamond, the specific approaches utilized to quality a round ruby's cut are various from those used to grade a heart-shaped ruby's cut.

The remainder of this explanation will concentrate on round rubies, as this is without a doubt the most usual diamond shape. Among the variables affecting the cut grade of a rounded ruby is the variety of elements it has. Facets are the level, specified areas on the surface area of a ruby. The aspects on round diamonds are usually triangular. Presently, it's assumed that the ideal round ruby must have 33 elements on the crown (the section of the ruby that rests over the band, which itself is the widest point of the ruby) and also 25 on the structure (the lower, much longer area of the ruby). When there are flaws on the surface of the diamond, cutters may add additional aspects in order to obscure them. This results in a degradation in the general top quality of the cut.

While the facet count is typically set as a great way of judging the quality of a diamond cut, there are various other factors on which jewelers regularly differ. Some of the other elements used by some authorities to help determine cut qualities consist of the height of the ruby's crown, the depth of the structure, the diameter of the table (the top of the crown), and the angles of the crown and also pavilion.

The American Requirement standard for round rubies requires a crown elevation of 16.2%, pavilion depth of 43.1%, as well as table size of 53% of the overall girdle size. The Perfect Great benchmark, however, asks for 19.2% crown height, 40% pavilion depth, and 56.5% table size. While these distinctions might be challenging for amateurs to determine, they are a great image of the problems related to producing an easy analysis of a ruby's cut.

Although there are some disputes regarding the exact percentages that constitute the best diamond cut, for potential diamond purchasers, the most crucial point to recognize is that ruby qualifications provided by companies like the AGS and also GIA are credible and meaningful. Respectable diamond vendors base the costs at which they acquire and sell diamonds on the cut in addition to the rest of the "4 Cs." When you acquire a ruby, you don't need to stress concerning the assumption of what makes an excellent diamond cut altering a lot that the worth of your diamond will certainly be significantly affected.

Which ruby reduced grade represents the finest value?

Which type of ruby is best for you largely depends on your budget plan. For customers that agree to acquire them, suppliers typically suggest rubies with the greatest feasible cut grades. Nevertheless, this might be because of some self-involvement on their component.
