Rich in history and infamy, the diamond has been one of the most coveted gemstones since 30, 000 BC. As a symbol of wealth and love, this jewel serves as so much more than just a statement piece and is a truly special one for anyone to have in their jewelry collection.
A long-standing tradition, diamond jewelry is given as engagement rings, or wedding bands between betrothed couples. And if you’re looking to find the perfect adornment for your adored one, here are some things you should keep in mind.
Carat – The carat is the weight of a diamond.
Clarity – The measurement of inclusions, or, internal defects.
Color – Color is graded with letters, the best being graded as D.
Cut – Not to be confused as ‘shape’ the diamond cutting is the art of creating gemstones from mine-rough diamonds.
Shape – Brilliant, marquise, princess, heart, pear, baguette, cushion and radiant, all describe the shape.
Quality – The most important aspect of diamond purchasing. The quality of its cut determines the ability to refract and reflect light. A quality cut diamond is one that looks like a greater carat weight!
