What should I look for while buying diamonds?

Use the 4Cs wisely

While buying loose diamonds, carat weight is important – a slight difference in carat weight may not change how the diamond appears to your naked eye, but may have a distinct effect on the price.

While choosing the right colour or clarity grade that’s optimum for the type of jewellery you want, make sure to check out a few stones and to keep in mind the jewellery design that you want. Buying loose diamonds means you will have to keep in mind how the diamond will be mounted – choose the right cut.

Go with a reputed diamond retailer

With loose diamonds, make sure your jeweller provides you with the necessary certification and documentation along with your diamonds so that you can be assured of their quality.

Compare, compare, compare

When looking for loose diamonds, don’t be afraid to ask for different stones so that you can choose the one that looks best to you.
