Princess Cut Diamond Rings in Ringgold

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

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

Ringgold 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.

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

Not all sellers provide diamond grading lab records (aka diamond top quality reports) to their customers. So my basic guidance to you is to keep your cash in your pocket when handling such jewelry experts.

Just purchase a diamond engagement ring if it features the initial diamond high quality record.

A laboratory record is an independent evaluation of the 4Cs of a loose ruby and consists of a plotted layout of the rock's clearness attributes and a graphic depiction of the rock's percentages. Having such a record allows you to contrast diamonds of various high qualities and eventually aids you make an even more informed acquiring choice.

A retailer could reduce edges and not supply a laboratory report or an unscrupulous vendor could supply a fake one because of the moment, difficulty and also expenditure he'll bear to obtaining a rock graded.

Yeah - there is a cost for grading a diamond (though that price is eventually paid by the customer), plus the delivery and also insurance policy fees for sending out the ruby to the lab. And allow us not neglect the opportunity expense of a jeweler not having the ruby in his store available for a few weeks while the grading occurs.

However, a diamond rating record might additionally not be offered because the costs to obtaining one might influence as well heavily on the last rate of the ring. For instance, a 0.3 ct diamond ring setting you back $250 claim, may set you back around $75 to be graded and also have the record number engraved on the girdle on the ruby. As you browse for that optimal diamond engagement ring for your sweetheart, you'll locate that there is an alphabet soup of labs asserting to supply reliable ruby grading reports. Yet I would only place my money on ...

The Premier Diamond Grading Lab Information

Yes, all diamond top quality reports are not created equal. Within the sector, it is a consensus that both premier laboratories are GIA-GTL (Gemological Institute of The U.S.A.'s Gem Trade Lab) as well as the AGS (American Gem Culture Laboratories).

The GCAL (Gem Certification and Guarantee Laboratory) also offers extremely concerned reports or "diamond certificates" as they are described by GCAL. The GIA has the best global reputation for freedom and consistency. Because of their continuous color and quality strictness guidelines, the world's largest and most expensive diamonds have actually been sent out there for rating years. In 2006, GIA-GTL added a two-dimensional cut grading system for round great diamonds.

AGS uses the most strict cut requirements in the industry. It uses a three-dimensional light efficiency metric that could grade a number of diamond forms. As a matter of fact, it is the only cut grading system that is recognized by the clinical area.

What is more, its Ruby Top quality Document utilizes a special as well as exclusive 0 to 10 grading system to examine the 4 Cs - a system which is simpler to understand compared to GIA's grading system. In reality, AGS also goes the added step by equating their 0-10 rating scale to various other types of rating. As an example, the traditional VS1 diamond quality rating is a 3 on the AGS Diamond Top Quality Document.

Ruby Coverage - The Drawbacks

1. Diamond grading is not standard or regulated and also thus you could find tier 2 laboratories that employ looser standards to the tier 1 grading labs mentioned above. If you acquire a diamond that has been graded by a rate 2 laboratory, you could finish up paying a lot more for a minimal high quality diamond. So for instance, a ruby rated a "F" in color at a tier 2 laboratory could obtain a G, H, or lower color ranking at a much more respectable laboratory. The market likewise marks down rubies rated by lower well-known labs by about 15-30% or even more. So either you only buy a ruby graded by a tier 1 lab or you accept that you could be getting a lower quality diamond compared to exactly what is mentioned on the record if that ruby is rated by a minimal well-known lab.

2. Lots of large store have massive contracts with lower recognized laboratories with "softer" ruby grading standards. A few of these softer laboratories placed "suggested replacement worths" on the lab records - worths which are more than what stores intends offer the rubies for. So a sales representative in a chain shop could claim to you, "Look at the good deal you are getting below. We are offering you this ruby involvement ring for $2500 but the report claims that the suggested replacement worth is $4000." Wow - what a deal - NOT! This is why it is much better that you trust just independent tier 1 labs.

Also bear in mind that respectable diamond rating reports are not assessments and also don't supply evaluation numbers. Diamond appraisals are often grossly inflated and are not something you'll desire to rely on.

3. Diamond reports are filled with please notes that specify that nothing is "accredited" or ensured as well as that the labs are not answerable for mistakes. In truth, the GIA uses a please note of kinds on their site pertaining to making use of the word "accredit." The website claims:

"It is incorrect to state that pupils, graduates, their companies, or specific gemstones are "accredited" by GIA. The Gemological Institute of The U.S.A. does not accredit anyone or anything. Neither a pupil nor a graduate that has been awarded a certification or diploma, neither a gem which has actually been rated or identified by GIA has been certified by GIA".

So it is feasible that you the consumer is left holding the bag ought to an inaccuracy in a report is later on discovered. Courts have frequently ruled that sellers, not laboratories, are accountable for such errors. Why? Because the laboratories indicated in advance that their records could not be held accountable.

Thankfully, there are a pair ways to offer on your own a lot more buyer defense:

A. You could fly to India where jewelers provide a lifetime buyback policy to their clients. As well pricey to fly?

B. You can locate among the 20% of United States jewelers who market totally adhered rubies. These are rubies that are marketed with life time breakage, lifetime trade-in and also life time buyback plans.

C. Not as great a remedy as acquiring a fully bound ruby but you can acquire a ruby that comes with an actual "certificate" and not a record. "Licensed rubies do include guaranties" albeit for much shorter periods.

Certification Some sellers describe a "diamond record" as a "licensed ruby" but practically this is not deal with. From a legal point ofview, a diamond record is a merely an experienced point of view though in reality, facets of a ruby rating record are not simply opinions.

As an example, a diamond's carat weight (weight) could be precisely established along with its cut quality by gauging its optical efficiency or by describing a computer system design. A certificate on the other hand is a declaration of fact - a paper for which the issuer accepts legal obligation as well as will certainly make restitution to the consumer for blunders.

Some leading ruby grading labs supply both records as well as certifications. AGS uses Diamond Top quality Documents (non-certified reports) as well as additionally Diamond Quality Certificates. Ruby High quality Certifications are ready specifically for AGS retail jewelry experts and supplies warranties from taking part American Gem Culture participant stores.

GCAL certifies it's ruby grading likewise. Its 100% money-back guarantee policy is valid for a period of two years from the date on the suitable certificate. This plan makes sure the precision of the cut, shade and quality qualities and the carat weight.

A report or certificate should will certainly have a number on it that could or might not be inscribed on a diamond. You will be able to enter that number on the web site of the licensing laboratory to inspect a record's legitimacy.

Elements Of A Ruby Grading Report Ruby grading records are constantly evolving but specific component ought to remain the exact same. For circumstances, the:

The Report #. This number is provided and also taped in a laboratory's document and also could or may not be etched on a diamond's band. You could go into the report number on a grading lab's internet site to inspect the authenticity of the diamond high quality record or to obtain more info regarding the diamond. Forming & Facet Style: This is the synopsis and also the cutting design utilized for the element plan. There are 3 fundamental facet styles - "great cut, step cut as well as blended cutting design" as well as 12 fundamental shapes that include notables such as rounded great as well as princess cut" diamonds.

Dimensions: This describes size (not weight) of a ruby. Size consists of measurements such as size, size, weight and also size. A dimension is usually noted to the hundredth of a millimeter. Dimensions play a significant function in how a ruby shines.

Carat Weight: The weight of a ruby is measured to the hundredth of a carat and also some even offer such measure to the thousandth of a carat weight (1.123 ct.). Carat weight is one of the most unbiased as well as the easiest to comprehend of the 4Cs because all one needs to do is weight the rock. Color Quality: This tells you the degree of shade lack in the ruby. The less color the greater the grade.

Diamonds are usually graded from D-Z; the closer to "D" the whiter the diamond. You ought to never ever see diamond shade array such as (G-H, I-J-K, and more) on a diamond record. You need to just see color varieties on appraisals for stones that are placed.

Clarity Grade: Essentially every diamond has internal blemishes called additions and outside blemishes called acnes. A ruby is graded inning accordance with the dimension, kind, area as well as quantity of these problems.

Clarity grades range from Perfect (FL) - Consisted Of. Labs use a couple specialists to quality the quality of a ruby in order to create an extra precise reading.

Cut Grade: More recent diamond reports include a cut grade for basic round brilliant rubies. Cut takes into factor to consider the radiance, fire as well as scintillation of the ruby. Cut grade ranges from Exceptional - Poor.

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

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.

For anyone looking for precious diamonds for engagement rings and wedding rings in Ringgold, 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 Ringgold. 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 Ringgold 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 Ringgold for you engagement or wedding.

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

How are diamond cut grades assigned?

This is where things start to obtain complicated. The techniques made use of to quantitatively examine the quality of a cut vary. The method the GIA establishes what a diamond's cut quality need to be, as an example, varies in very details means from the way various other certifiers like the AGS do it. In many cases, these organizations don't disclose the specific details of the processes they use.

The form of a ruby likewise makes a difference with respect to exactly how its cut grade is figured out. Although there are some standard criteria that continue to be the very same for any type of sort of diamond, the exact approaches used to grade a round ruby's cut are different from those made use of to quality a heart-shaped ruby's cut.

The remainder of this description will concentrate on rounded diamonds, as this is without a doubt the most usual ruby shape. Among the elements impacting the cut grade of a round diamond is the variety of elements it has. Elements are the level, specified locations on the surface area of a ruby. The elements on round rubies are typically triangular. Presently, it's thought that the ideal round ruby ought to have 33 elements on the crown (the section of the diamond that rests above the girdle, which itself is the widest point of the ruby) as well as 25 on the pavilion (the reduced, longer section of the diamond). When there are flaws on the surface of the ruby, cutters could add extra aspects in order to cover them. This leads to a degradation in the general top quality of the cut.

While the facet matter is normally decideded upon as an excellent way of evaluating the top quality of a ruby cut, there are various other points on which gemologists frequently differ. Some of the various other variables utilized by some authorities in order to help identify cut grades include the elevation of the diamond's crown, the deepness of the structure, the diameter of the table (the top of the crown), and also the angles of the crown and also pavilion.

The American Criterion standard for round rubies calls for a crown height of 16.2%, structure deepness of 43.1%, and also table size of 53% of the complete band diameter. The Suitable Brilliant benchmark, nonetheless, asks for 19.2% crown height, 40% pavilion depth, as well as 56.5% table size. While these distinctions might be difficult for novices to recognize, they are a good picture of the problems connected with developing a basic analysis of a ruby's cut.

Although there are some arguments as to the exact proportions that make up the excellent diamond cut, for prospective diamond purchasers, one of the most important thing to recognize is that ruby accreditations given by companies like the AGS and GIA are trustworthy and significant. Trustworthy diamond vendors base the costs at which they deal rubies on the cut as well as the remainder of the "four Cs." When you acquire a ruby, you do not have to fret about the understanding of what makes a great diamond cut changing a lot that the worth of your ruby will be dramatically influenced.

Which diamond cut grade represents the most effective worth?

Which type of diamond is best for you largely depends on your budget plan. For buyers that want to buy them, suppliers typically recommend diamonds with the greatest possible cut grades. Nonetheless, this may be because of some self-involvement on their part.

The various other 3 Cs have an effect on diamond costs also, so it could be challenging to determine the precise distinction in price in between an Ideal or Excellent cut diamond and also a Great cut. For informal customers and also budget-conscious financiers alike, diamonds with an Excellent or Good cut quality can stand for a superb worth. This is because, while they could be extra budget-friendly compared to or else equal Suitable or Outstanding cut rubies, the noticeable difference in high quality is minimal.

At the very same time, do not hesitate to use your discretion. If, for instance, you discover a diamond with a Perfect cut ranking which has excellent scores in the other categories as well as is still within your budget, then you should certainly consider it, as long as you're managing a trusted vendor.

Grading Rough Diamonds!

Ringgold

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.
