How To Choose A Good Quality Diamond?

The shape refers to the appearance of the stone, and the cut to the diamond’s ability to reflect light. Most diamond shapes are round, square (cushion), rectangular (princess, Asscher, emerald, radiant), heart-shaped, pear-shaped, oval, or marquise (like a pear but pointed on both ends). With so many diamonds to choose from, finding the one that’s right for you can feel overwhelming, especially when compared to a jewelry store where choice is much more limited. Consider the following step-by-step guide for choosing a diamond.

First, identify the diamond shape desired by the recipient. If you do not know and cannot find out, consider round or princess cut. Set a carat weight minimum based on the recipient’s preferences. If they have their heart set on a one carat diamond, even the most beautiful half carat stone will be a disappointment. Start with the highest quality diamond of the shape and carat weight minimum you identified in steps 1 and 2, and begin making concessions in the following order until you arrive at a diamond that fits your budget.

A diamond’s quality and price are determined by a set of four conditions known as the four C’s: cut clarity, color, and karat. When selecting a diamond, look for one that balances these four qualities without straining your budget. Perfect quality diamonds are rare and extremely expensive, but you can select a slightly less perfect diamond that still appears brilliant to the naked eye. The cut determines a diamond’s shape and brilliance. A well-cut diamond reflects light from one facet to another. If cut too deep or too shallow, light escapes from the diamond prematurely, reducing the stone’s quality.

As diamonds are formed naturally, they often form impurities. These are known as “inclusions,” and they form over millions of years underground. Most imperfections are microscopic and can’t be seen with the naked eye. Some diamonds have no imperfections at all and are known as ‘flawless’, but these are very rare.

Purchase a diamond that balances colorlessness with the price. Since most tints are extremely difficult to see, a higher grade for color does not make much difference in quality. It can, however, make a huge difference in price. These are a couple of factors that need to be kept in mind if you are willing to purchase a good quality diamond. Don’t forget to compare the carats and its price when it comes to choosing the diamond for a special occasion.
