How to Purchase a Diamond:
Step 1: Learn the 5 C’s
At International Diamond Center, we believe that there are 5 C’s to buying diamonds: Cut, Clarity, Color, Carat Weight and Certification. Clarity and Color are both related to the natural stone itself and takes into account how clear, or colorless, the stone is as well as any imperfections that can be seen throughout the stone. Carat Weight is related to the size and weight of the stone, with larger diamonds fetching higher prices than smaller diamonds. The cut of the diamond references the way the stone is shaped and presented. There are several types of cuts available (round, oval, marquise, cushion, princess, pear, asscher and emerald), and more intricate cuts are often costlier than more simple designs. Finally, certification must be considered. Not all gemological laboratories are created equal. Be sure your diamond is graded by a reputable agency such as the GIA or AGS.
Step 2: Find a Reputable Supplier
It’s important you trust your supplier and can rely on them to provide fair pricing for all of their items including loose diamonds, gemstones, engagement rings and watches. It’s very easy to find yourself paying far too much when you can find equal quality diamonds and jewelry for less. Stake out local jewelry stores and determine if they have prices that align with current market trends and/or offer financing options to help you offset the initial investment costs.
