Tips to Buy Diamonds


If you want to buy diamonds for an engagement ring, wedding ring or any other jewellery item you would like to have made, you should first do some research and gain some knowledge on diamonds before you buy them.

If this is the first time you are going to buy a diamond, you should familiarise yourself with the four C’s that all diamond wholesalers use to grade diamonds. These are the cut, clarity, colour and carat.

Diamonds are costly and are certainly an investment, therefore one should consider shopping around and comparing prices before you buy diamonds. Some diamond wholesalers have various specials and discounts that are well worth investigating before you just buy the first diamond you see and like.

Only buy diamonds from a reputable diamond wholesaler. Often the cheapest diamonds are not always the best diamonds to buy. Consider buying diamonds from a wholesaler that offers you excellent service and one that takes the time to answer your questions before you buy a diamond. It is better to buy diamonds from a wholesaler that is able to give you good advice on which diamonds to buy. A diamond wholesaler that offers friendly ideas and tips on designing that perfect diamond ring or piece of jewellery is well worth investigating.

One should always make sure that the diamond wholesaler presents you with a diamond certificate for the diamond you want to buy. These certificates can be quite daunting to decipher, especially if you are not familiar with all the jargon they contain, like girdle, cutlet and table to name a few. One should consider buying diamonds from a diamond wholesaler that offers to patiently go through and explain the diamond certificate to you before you buy diamonds. That way, you know and understand the true value of the diamond you are buying.
