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.

The diamond derives its name from the Greek job adamas suggesting unsurpassable. In firmness, there is no comparison. The diamond prices in the Mohs range a 10 which is the hardest material in the world. Its cutting resistance is 140 times that of the ruby and also sapphire, the gems(Diamond) that are next in the Mohs scale in hardness. The ruby's optical buildings such as gloss and also rigidity make it special as well as quickly differentiated from other imitations. Take pleasure in!

* History of Diamonds

The initial recorded ruby go back around 800 B.C. in India. Some think it even went back 6,000 years ago. The diamonds were made use of as decorative functions as well as additionally as amulets to ward off wicked and offer defense in fight. During the Dark Ages, diamonds were even specified to be utilized as a medical help. Spiritual doctors also told people that if they hold a ruby in a hand and also make the indicator of the cross would, it would cure and also illness and heal injuries.

Rubies became extra preferred during the 19th century because of discovery of ruby down payments in South Africa. This exploration results in increased supply, boosted reducing as well as polishing methods, and also growth in economic climate. In 1979, geologists found the Argyle pipeline in Australia which to this day is the wealthiest ruby down payment in the world. Argyle, considering that after that, alone is accountable for supplying over one third of the globe's diamonds yearly.

* Diamonds: Exactly how are they developed?

Diamonds consists of an allotrope of carbons that are developed in high-pressure, high-temperature problems. Diamonds are produced 90 miles under the Earth's surface at temperatures of about 2200 degrees Fahrenheit. Diamonds are developed deep within the planet and also ultimately, over incredibly lengthy durations of time, push their means to the earth's surface area, normally via volcanic eruptions.

The age of these rubies from under the surface area of the earth are from 1 to 3.3 billion years old! When diamonds are created as well as start their ascent to the planet's surface, they undergo networks where the magma from the volcano rises to the surface area, grabbing rubies in the process and ultimately transferring them externally, where they are ultimately located as well as extracted.

* The 4 C's of Diamonds

There are four unique characteristics that establish the worth and top quality of a diamond. These are the color, cut, clarity and carat. Or else known as the 4 C's of a diamond. In the complying with, we will certainly speak concerning these functions in information.

* Color

In the last newsletter, we touch based on the shade of gemstones as being one of the most essential feature as a result of the truth that shade is the most obvious feature. The ideal ruby should show up clear as well as anemic however this is not the instance for all diamonds. Diamonds can come in any type of color of the rainbow most common shade is a color of yellow or brownish. The Geological Institute of America(GIA) have actually developed a guideline to quality ruby shade. This standard consists of a text system that ranges from the alphabet D - Z. Please see below:

D E F No Shade G H I J Virtually Colorless K L M Faintly tinted, cannot rarely be seen and also normally yellow in shade N O P Q R Lightly tinted, generally yellow. Could be seen with the naked eye S T U V W X Y Z Tinted, begins with yellow and also proceeds to brownish

* Clarity

The cut a ruby is established by the ruby's proportion such as its shape, width as well as deepness. The cut establishes just what is called the ruby's "sparkle". Even if the ruby itself has perfect shade and also quality, with a poor cut the diamond will certainly have a dull radiance. This is since the cut identifies how light trips within the ruby. The Gemological Institute of The U.S.A. has actually also devised a clearness grading system to place ruby clarity. This grading system includes Perfect (Fl), Inside Perfect (IF), Really Extremely A Little Consisted Of (VV1 or VV2), Very Somewhat Included(VS1 or VS2), Somewhat Included(SI1 or SI2), as well as Consisted Of(I1, I2, as well as I3). Although this system had actually been added to the diamond industry, it is not widely made use of. This results from that it took a great deal of method and also training to incorporate it.

* Cut

The cut a diamond is determined by the ruby's proportion such as its form, width and depth. The cut determines just what is called the ruby's "radiance". Also if the ruby itself has excellent color and quality, with an inadequate cut the diamond will have a plain brilliance. This is because the cut identifies just how light travels within the diamond.

There are 3 sorts of cuts that can identify the ruby's radiance. These are a superficial cut, a cut that is also deep and also optimal cut. A superficial cut is a cut of a ruby that is as well low, that light traveling through it is lost under of the rock and also does not return right into view. This cut makes a ruby show up lifeless and also dull. A cut that is unfathomable is a cut that is too high, that light traveling through it gets away through the sides and dims the stone. A perfect cut is a best cut on a ruby that reflects light to the top of the rock, offering it perfect luster.

* Carat

As stated on the last e-newsletter, a single carat(ct) evaluates concerning 200 milligrams or.2 grams. For smaller carat weight diamonds that consider much less than a carat, it is revealed as factors (pt). Points are 1/100 of a carat. Carat weight of a ruby is necessary due to that larger rubies are rarer than smaller ones, so generally the bigger the ruby the extra expensive it is. There is no common grading system or layout that could reveal various carat weight. This is since there are a lot of variants of diamonds fit and cut, makings rocks of comparable weight, look various.

* Imitation Diamonds

Because rubies are one of the most important and rarest of all the gemstones, efforts have actually been made to replicate or perhaps improve rubies making use of less pricey choices. A great deal of times, straightforward mistakes have actually been made and these options or various other gemstones such as spinel were sometimes confused with real rubies. In some instances, some dishonest people attempt to offer these options to misfortunate customers in order to earnings. Below we will certainly review about these choices and also ways to determine them.

* Synthetic Diamonds

Artificial diamonds are rubies that are grown produced in a lab. The first known instances of ruby synthesis were declared to be documented between 1879 - 1928, but this was never confirmed. It wasn't up until the 1940's where research study began in the USA, Sweden, Soviet Union began looking into. Artificial rubies are otherwise recognized as High Stress Heat (HPHT) diamonds or Chemical Vapor Down Payment (CVD) diamonds. The name of both these synthetic diamonds stems from the procedures made use of to develop them. A few of these artificial diamonds could either have better, lower or similar qualities compared to that of a ruby. As a result, these synthetic diamonds are utilized for abrasives, reducing as well as polishing devices, and also switches in power plant.

* Simulants

Simulants are non-diamond substances that are used to reproduce the appearance or even the shape of a ruby. The most standard and also popular simulant is cubic zirconia (CZ). CZ at plain view could glimmer more than a diamond as well as additionally it is less thick, suggesting that a 1 carat CZ will certainly be a lot larger compared to a 1 carat weight diamond. Nowadays, a much more preferred simulant is moissanite, which has all the same qualities of a ruby. These characteristics consist of hardness (Moissanite-9.25 and diamond-10 in Mohs range), refractive index(Moissanite -2.65 as well as diamond -2.42) and also diffusion (Moissanite -.104 and also ruby -.044). This makes it hard to set apart the 2 at simple sight and also would certainly typically require testers to tell the distinction. In the following area we will go over how you can recognize moissanites and also other imitations.

* Genuine or Phony?

An old method of identifying rubies is to do a scrape test. This calls for scraping a ruby with one more ruby which is harmful as well as is hardly ever utilized nowadays. The most effective and most reputable method to check for rubies is to make use of testers that use thermal conductivity. These testers are composed of battery powered thermistors placed with a retractable copper tip. This tester functions by infusing the warmth into the examined rock and after that the device measures the quantity of warm that it carries out. Nonetheless thermal conductivity testers functions best to distinguish rubies as well as its other simulants, it will certainly not assist distinguish lab created or synthetic rocks. To be able to recognize these, specific optical techniques are needed. Laboratories use methods such as spectroscopy, microscopy as well as luminescence in order to determine a specific stones origin. The ordinary individual could make use of loupes and microscopic lens to differentiate artificial rocks. All-natural diamonds generally have small imperfections and also defects such as inclusions or some kind of foreign product, which will not be discovered in synthetics.

How is it done? The wanted end result of any of these therapies is to have an extra marketable ruby. A less marketable ruby would certainly be a diamond that has a reduced body shade or sometimes a reduced clarity. The color improved diamond treatment firms understand if they start off with a specific sort of diamond and process it for a particular amount of time that they need to finish up with a specific color however it does not constantly work in this way. This is a scientific research that does call for some art in their processes ... the only process that gives consistent results is the coating procedure.

The three processes are as follows- Process # 1- HPHT Shade Improved Diamonds- High Stress/ High Temperature (HPHT) therapy could boost the shade of certain kinds of brownish rubies as well as therefore raise their value. General Electric has actually created a procedure that basically is a mechanical simulation of a diamond's production in nature. The color improved diamond will be warmed up to a really high temperature level under a really high, maintained pressure. Faults in the crystal framework are then reorganized leading to a modification of the ruby's color. Because the problems of HPHT are really comparable to ruby's initial formation, only a well furnished lab will certainly have the ability to positively recognize this sort of shade boosted diamond. HPHT was initially made use of to transform yellowish rubies right into more marketable fancy tinted improved diamonds, but currently it is also used to change some undesirable brownish diamonds into better anemic tinted improved rubies.

Refine # 2- Irradiated Color Enhanced Diamonds- OK ... do not begin obtaining all thrilled because you saw the word irradiated! This is a 100% risk-free procedure that is extremely just like just what is utilized to protect food by subjecting it to a stream of Gamma rays. The color enhanced ruby process is performed in several different methods however the results are all the exact same. You start with a reduced shade (P, Q, R, and so on) 100% all-natural ruby that has already been cut and polished, after that it is subjected to a stream of fast electrons. During this part of the process the diamond will certainly count on an extremely dark color due to the fact that a few of the atoms in the ruby's crystal structure have actually currently been disjointed and also this then has influenced the way light passes through the ruby. Next the ruby experiences a controlled home heating (annealing) procedure, this permits some of those atoms to transfer (partially fixed) in order to get a wanted color.

Refine # 3- Coated Color Boosted Diamonds- The finish on polished diamonds describes a slim fabricated layer that modifies the shade of the diamond. The finishing could either be of the preferred shade or could trigger a tinted interference-effect. Regrettably occasionally this procedure is done to deceive a purchaser. It is a fairly very easy procedure to carry out, it has actually been around for years (although the coverings materials are better now), and also it does not call for a lot of costly advanced equipment. Recently, I've seen some pink coated diamonds on the market, they are very eye-catching ... as well as certainly you would have to buy them knowing that they have actually been covered and also follow your jeweler's guidelines concerning possessing as well as taking care of these shade improved diamonds. The finish can be put on the whole of a ruby's surface area, just all-time low of the ruby, or to a narrow zone near the band. A well-applied finishing can change the shade by several shade quality. Some finishings can be gotten rid of via steaming in acid, strong cleansing remedies, and even household chemicals. In some cases dots or bigger locations of purple or blue ink are repainted on the ruby to assist neutralize a yellowish color. The diamond's setting will normally cover the dots, so they are difficult to see in a mounted stone.

So, is a color boosted ruby right for you? Possibly ... natural fancy shade diamonds can be gorgeous however they are pricey! Color boosted rubies are economical and also allow many individuals to possess a vibrantly colored ruby. Ask your regional jeweler if they have any kind of Fancy diamonds ... either all-natural or shade enhanced diamonds. It is constantly intriguing, as well as fun, to take a look at something different!

Under normal wear the irradiated and also HPHT color improved rubies will certainly have not a problem of the shade fading away. The only consideration will be when you have to have any kind of kind of service done on the item of precious jewelry. If this kind of color improved diamond is exposed to excessive amounts of warm it might impact the shade. The jeweler will certainly should know that the diamond is a color improved ruby prior to any kind of job is done and also after that the jeweler will certainly be able to choose the most effective program of action. Shade boosted rubies are now additionally used as the little accent diamonds around a larger anemic ruby. There are many interesting items of precious jewelry readily available with little blue, yellow, black, or green shade enhanced diamonds.

Now that you understand about color improved diamonds as well as a person aims to offer you on just what they call a natural fancy tinted diamond yet it is at a very bargain rate ... you will recognize that something just does not appear appropriate regarding the offer. A record from a respected grading laboratory need to come with 100% natural Fancy tinted diamonds that are marketed as natural. If you manage a reliable firm and also you have been assured concerning exactly what you are buying, then you will certainly lessen the possibility of something bad happening to you. As with any situation including a costly acquisition of something that very few individuals are well versed in, education should be a vital part of your strategy. This is a lot more important if you prepare to buy a color boosted ruby. Bud Boland has remained in the jewelry company for 40 years as well as has actually done whatever from watchmaking, ruby setting, jewelry making, as well as has actually been a Jeweler for almost 35 years. He is a Graduate Jeweler from GIA (Gemological Institute of The U.S.A.), which is likewise the area where he was a Teacher. He has actually educated about diamonds to hundreds of pupils from all around the world

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.

What Are Color Boosted Diamonds and Are They For You?

Sekiu

To begin our feature on different kinds of gemstones, we will certainly start with the very best as well as most well known gemstone of them all the ruby. The ruby is the ultimate gems.

However the diamond is so much even more compared to its timeless elegance.

The ruby obtains its name from the Greek job adamas suggesting irresistible. In firmness, there is no comparison. The ruby rates in the Mohs scale a 10 which is the hardest substance on Earth. Its reducing resistance is 140 times that of the ruby as well as sapphire, the gemstones(Diamond) that are next in the Mohs range in solidity. The diamond's optical residential or commercial properties such as radiance as well as rigidity make it special as well as quickly differentiated from other replicas. Appreciate!

* History of Diamonds

The very first tape-recorded diamond go back around 800 B.C. in India. Some think it even dated back 6,000 years earlier. The diamonds were made use of as attractive functions as well as also as amulets to prevent wicked as well as give defense in battle. Throughout the Dark Ages, rubies were also stated to be utilized as a medical aid. Spiritual doctors even informed patients that if they hold a diamond in a hand as well as make the sign of the cross would certainly, it would certainly heal as well as illness and also recover wounds.

Diamonds became extra prominent throughout the 19th century due to discovery of ruby deposits in South Africa. This exploration leads to increased supply, boosted reducing as well as brightening techniques, and also development in economic climate. In 1979, geologists discovered the Argyle pipe in Australia which to this day is the wealthiest ruby deposit worldwide. Argyle, because after that, alone is in charge of supplying over one third of the world's rubies each year.

* Diamonds: How are they developed?

Diamonds contains an allotrope of carbons that are formed in high-pressure, high-temperature conditions. Diamonds are generated 90 miles under the Planet's surface area at temperatures of regarding 2200 degrees Fahrenheit. Rubies are formed deep within the planet as well as eventually, over extremely extended periods of time, push their method to the earth's surface, usually via volcanic eruptions.

The age of these rubies from underneath the surface of the earth are from 1 to 3.3 billion years of ages! When diamonds are created and also start their ascent to the earth's surface, they go with networks where the magma from the volcano climbs to the surface area, getting rubies along the way as well as at some point depositing them on the surface area, where they are at some point located as well as mined.

* The 4 C's of Diamonds

There are four distinct qualities that determine the value and also quality of a diamond. These are the color, cut, clarity and carat weight. Otherwise called the 4 C's of a ruby. In the adhering to, we will speak about these attributes carefully.

* Color

In the last newsletter, we touch based on the shade of gemstones as being one of the most essential feature due to that shade is one of the most obvious feature. The excellent diamond must show up clear and also colorless however this is not the case for all rubies. Diamonds can come in any color of the rainbow most typical color is a shade of yellow or brown. The Geological Institute of America(GIA) have created a standard to grade ruby shade. This guideline is composed of a lettering system that varies from the alphabet D - Z. Please see listed below:

D E F No Color G H I J Nearly Anemic K L M Faintly tinted, can't rarely be seen as well as normally 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 and progresses to brown

* Clearness

The cut a ruby is established by the diamond's percentage such as its form, width as well as deepness. The cut identifies exactly what is called the diamond's "sparkle". Also if the ruby itself has perfect color and clearness, with an inadequate cut the ruby will certainly have a plain luster. This is since the cut determines just how light journeys within the ruby. The Gemological Institute of The U.S.A. has likewise developed a clearness grading system to rate diamond clarity. This grading system includes Perfect (Fl), Internally Perfect (IF), Very Really Somewhat Consisted Of (VV1 or VV2), Extremely Somewhat Consisted Of(VS1 or VS2), Slightly Included(SI1 or SI2), as well as Included(I1, I2, and also I3). Although this system had been added to the ruby market, it is not commonly utilized. This is because of the truth that it took a lot of method and training to incorporate it.

* Cut

The cut a diamond is figured out by the ruby's percentage such as its shape, size and depth. The cut determines what is called the ruby's "luster". Even if the ruby itself has ideal color as well as clearness, with an inadequate cut the ruby will certainly have a boring sparkle. This is since the cut identifies exactly how light journeys within the ruby.

There are 3 types of cuts that could determine the ruby's brilliance. These are a shallow cut, a cut that is unfathomable and also perfect cut. A superficial cut is a cut of a ruby that is as well low, that light traveling via it is shed under of the stone and does not come back into view. This cut makes a diamond show up drab as well as boring. A cut that is unfathomable is a cut that is expensive, that light traveling with it leaves via the sides and also dims the rock. An excellent cut is an excellent cut on a ruby that mirrors light to the top of the stone, giving it best brilliance.

* Carat weight

As specified on the last e-newsletter, a solitary carat(ct) considers regarding 200 milligrams or.2 grams. For smaller sized carat diamonds that evaluate less than a carat weight, it is expressed as points (pt). Points are 1/100 of a carat weight. Carat weight of a diamond is necessary due to the reality that bigger rubies are rarer compared to smaller ones, so basically the larger the diamond the a lot more expensive it is. There is no basic grading system or diagram that could show different carat weight. This is due to the fact that there are so numerous variations of rubies fit and also cut, makings stones of similar weight, look different.

* Imitation Diamonds

Since diamonds are the most useful as well as rarest of all the gemstones, initiatives have actually been made to duplicate and even improve rubies utilizing less costly alternatives. A lot of times, sincere blunders have been made and also these alternatives or various other gems such as spinel were sometimes confused with genuine rubies. In some instances, some deceitful individuals attempt to market these alternatives to misfortunate purchasers in order to earnings. Below we will certainly discuss concerning these choices and methods to identify them.

* Synthetic Diamonds

Artificial diamonds are diamonds that are expanded made in a laboratory. The very first known instances of ruby synthesis were declared to be recorded in between 1879 - 1928, yet this was never validated. It had not been till the 1940's where study began in the USA, Sweden, Soviet Union began looking into. Artificial diamonds are or else called High Pressure Heat (HPHT) rubies or Chemical Vapor Deposit (CVD) diamonds. The name of both these artificial diamonds stems from the processes made use of to create them. Some of these synthetic diamonds might either have higher, lesser or similar qualities than that of a diamond. Consequently, these synthetic diamonds are used for abrasives, cutting as well as brightening tools, and also switches over in power terminals.

* Simulants

Simulants are non-diamond substances that are utilized to replicate the look or even the shape of a ruby. The most fundamental as well as popular simulant is cubic zirconia (CZ). CZ at simple view can shimmer more compared to a ruby and additionally it is much less dense, suggesting that a 1 carat CZ will certainly be a lot bigger than a 1 carat weight diamond. Nowadays, a more prominent simulant is moissanite, which has all the same features of a diamond. These attributes include hardness (Moissanite-9.25 and also diamond-10 in Mohs scale), refractive index(Moissanite -2.65 and also ruby -2.42) as well as dispersion (Moissanite -.104 and diamond -.044). This makes it difficult to differentiate the 2 at plain sight as well as would typically require testers to tell the difference. In the next section we will talk about ways to determine moissanites and various other replicas.

* Genuine or Fake?

An old method of determining diamonds is to do a scrape examination. This requires scratching a diamond with another diamond which is devastating and is seldom utilized nowadays. The very best and most trusted means to check for rubies is to utilize testers that use thermal conductivity. These testers are composed of battery powered thermistors placed with a retracting copper suggestion. This tester functions by injecting the warmth into the evaluated rock as well as after that the gadget measures the quantity of warm that it conducts. Nevertheless thermal conductivity testers functions best to distinguish rubies as well as its other simulants, it will certainly not help distinguish laboratory created or artificial stones. To be able to recognize these, particular optical strategies are required. Laboratories use methods such as spectroscopy, microscopy as well as luminescence in order to determine a certain rocks origin. The ordinary individual could utilize loupes and microscopes to identify artificial stones. All-natural rubies usually have small blemishes and also problems such as additions or some kind of foreign product, which will not be discovered in synthetics.
