The 7Cs’ of diamonds to look out for are:
• Carat Weight
Shape: There are almost 10 classical diamond shapes like round, heart, square, oval and so on. But, the round shape has proven to be the most popular and most expensive too. It’s because the wastage is more when a rough diamond is cut into a polished one. So, look for the shape that suits your budget too.
Carat: You must have seen that half a carat comes at a cheap price while when you go for one carat its price quadruples. Well, the high carat you go for, the more big and costly it will be.
Clarity: Looking for a flawless diamond with high clarity gradings? Make sure it has no inclusions inside the stone and if it meets this criterion, then go for it without thinking much.
Color: White and colorless diamonds are quite popular. But some colored diamonds are costlier. Also, evaluate that if there are any inclusions in it, they should be small enough that can’t be seen. Because if you go for a perfect diamond then your budget will shoot up.
Cut: Diamonds came into existence billions of years ago through volcanic eruptions to the earth’s surface. They were spread out, founded and cut into desired shapes. As a natural process, they have minerals and other deposits inside that are removed while cutting. But, some of these materials can’t be taken away. Thus, if there are any inclusions, then stay away from buying such a diamond.
Certification: To be assured that you are buying a genuine diamond engagement ring, then get a GIA certification for it from the jeweller. This certification is accepted worldwide and gives an assurance that you are buying a diamond of certain carat weight, clarity or color as described.
Cost: The ring should be a value for money, so look out for a carat weight that’s popular and just below your chosen one to avoid its price jump.
Well, all these basics will help you in choosing the perfect diamond engagement ring that will blow your sweetheart with joy. So, follow these rules properly and start a new and committed relation with a rock of romance – diamond ring.
