Diamonds are fascinating. They are one of nature’s most beautiful and durable creations. As such they have been a source of desire for centuries.
Prior to embarking on your journey to finding the perfect diamond ring, it is worthwhile spending some time getting to grips with the basics. Help is at hand with our short guide on the 4Cs of a diamond.
The 4Cs of a diamond are the major factors influencing the quality and hence the price of a diamond. Use your preferred diamond characteristics to prioritise the 4Cs. This approach helps you get the ring of your dreams within your budget. For instance, if you are looking for a big diamond, then focus on a larger carat at the expense of lower diamond colour and clarity grade. If on the other hand, you prefer the brilliance of a diamond, choose one with excellent cut and clarity grade.
Equipped with the basics of the 4Cs and your preferences, it is time to get an idea of the prices. For affordable diamond rings, take a look online. You will find that buying your diamond ring online may save you money compared to buying from high street jewellers.
When buying a diamond ring or any other piece of diamond jewellery, make sure that you are getting your money’s worth for the diamond purchased. Independent of whether the purchase is made online or in an actual jewellery shop, the diamond should be supplied with the corresponding grading report. It is common practice for any reputable jeweller to provide a diamond grading report with the purchase of an item of diamond jewellery. The report is an assurance that a diamond expert has graded the diamond and has certified that it possesses the stated specifications.
