Step 1: Set your budget
The words ‘diamonds’ and ‘budget’ don’t seem to go together, but take our word for it, this is one of the main considerations you need to keep in mind while purchasing your sparkler. It’ll save you some much needed time and effort, if you zero in on a fixed number. Once you know how much you’re willing to spend, that’s half the battle won.
Don’t be afraid if you don’t have a big budget. Even if you opt for a small pair of diamonds, remember that you can upgrade them in a couple of years. You can buy a pair of classy diamond stud earrings and later ask your jeweler to make a jacket that you can slip your diamond studs in to get a whole new look!
Step 2: Prioritize
Do you want a large diamond solitaire or would you like a modern design with many smaller dazzlers? A ring, earrings, tennis bracelet or a pendant? What shape of diamonds would you like best – round, oval, marquise, pear, heart, princess or emerald cut?Decisions, decisions! This is the stage where you debate –talk to friends or relatives, argue with yourself, if you must, but prioritize.
Step 3: The 4 Cs
You’ll need to focus on the all-important 4 Cs. These are four crucial pointers that you’ll need to look at while buying your diamonds.
- Color – Diamonds are graded according to color and you can pick from a variety of color grades to suit your budget. Ideally you’ll have to pick a stone with a purer white color (Grades D-F), unless you choose to buy colored diamonds. However, if you want to buy a larger stone, you can focus more on cut rather than color. Most of these color differences are very subtle, and you don’t need to be picky when it comes to color for earrings and pendants (you can choose Grades G- J)
- Cut – The cut of a diamond comprises depth, width and facets. It determines the brilliance of the light that shines through, and is reflected off the diamond. Don’t rely on just a certification, try and examine the stone carefully. Can you see a prism of colors when the light passes through it? How complex is the cut? Take a friend or relative with some experience in diamond-buying with you, but don’t hesitate to ask your jeweler all these questions, and don’t make a purchase until you’re satisfied with the answers.
- Clarity – ‘Clarity’ is used to describe the imperfections or faults that occur internally (inclusions) or externally (blemishes) in/on the diamond. Most inclusions are visible under a microscope and not to the naked eye. There are certain grades that are assigned to diamonds based on how flawless a diamond is, VS1 and VS2 being acceptable grades. It is extremely rare to find an entirely flawless diamond, and diamonds can also be slightly bruised when mounted onto a ring or set in a design.
- Carat – The carat refers to the weight of a diamond, and also determines the price of a diamond. The price per carat for a larger diamond because of its rarity is significantly higher than a smaller diamond. Another pointer for solitaires is that the stone is likely to lose some weight after polishing, so remember to always ask your jeweler the final weight you’ll receive so that you get nothing less than what you’re paying for.
Step 4: Certification
Once you’re happy with your selection of Diamond jewelry, always take a day or two do a little more research, and make sure you purchase a certified diamond. If your jeweler refuses to provide you with a certificate of authenticity for your diamond, it’s best to consider another jeweler or diamond boutique.
Step 5: Seal the Deal
Congratulations! You’ve purchased the gift of a lifetime – your first diamond. Feels good, doesn’t it? Kiss it, show it off, caress it at dinner parties, flirt with it on a good night out on the town! But don’t forget to care for it as well. Get your bling polished and cleaned at least once a year to help keep that sparkle eternal.
