More Than Just Diamonds
When researching and purchasing a diamond there are key factors that should be kept in mind. These factors are commonly called the 4 C’s: cut, clarity, color, and carat weight. They are what is used to describe the quality of a cut diamond which then relates to its value. The most popular cut shape is the modern round brilliant cut. It offers the greatest display of light performance and is considered the classic diamond shape. Because of its popularity and ability to present the best a diamond has to offer, more diamonds are cut in this shape than any other. Shapes other than round are called fancy cuts. A reputable jeweler should be able to discuss all aspects of diamond buying with you.
Selecting a jeweler is just as important as selecting a ring. You want someone you can trust and build a relationship with. Your jeweler will provide you with advice and guidance on purchasing an engagement ring but also the wedding bands, attendant’s gifts, and hopefully, anniversary and special holiday gifts in the future. Purchasing jewelry should be a fun experience and the right jeweler can deliver that for you!
