When it comes time to buy a diamond sometimes it gets a little stressful as you walk into a jewelry store and feel like you might be being put on. I mean who really believes that the store is actually discounting their prices 75% off. If they had it marked up that high then how in the world are we supposed to know what a normal retail price for a diamond really is? It’s complicated when you look into it. A search on the internet will take you through several pages of spam related sites with no real information about current diamond prices in site. The Rapaport Price List is the first real unbiased informative price list I came upon. Jewelry stores use it to price their diamonds and so should you if you can figure out how to use it.
If you buy the diamond online, you must know something about the 4 C’s, namely the diamond’s carat, color, clarity and cut. Each of them will influence the price of the diamond ornament. Perhaps you can’t tell the difference by watching. However, the prices for different grades of diamond differ greatly. Take the clarity for instance, if you select the diamond of VS2, its inclusions can’t be seen by the naked eye, so does the diamond price of VVS1, but their prices are quite different. The price of VVS1 is far higher than that of VS2.
The cut is a measure of the reflective qualities and the overall brilliance of the diamond. The better the cut, the more brilliant a diamond is going to be. The perfect cut is one that reflects the most amount of light back at you when you stare into it. The key to achieving a good cut in a diamond is the angles that are used in the process. If the cuts on the underside of the diamond are to flat, then light will not be reflected back through the diamond. Instead, the light will simply pass right through it. In order to give off the most brilliance, the cuts must be proportional in order to allow for the right reflection angles. This is something that you will often hear big name jewelers such as Kay Jewelers discussing when they are advertising their diamond price.
For common people with limited budgets, you can settle with replica diamond watches. This is if your goal is just to be stylish and good looking. As part of the usual etiquette, men do not disclose details with their watches and other belongings. Thus, you do not need to mention that it is not an authentic luxury watch. Just let it be a mystery for the public during occasions and in the office. They will never know especially if you carry it well.
You don’t need to be an avid reader of Vanity Fair or a Perez Hilton type who is destined to spend life ogling at the stunning fashion and accessories donned by celebrities on the red carpet (anyone still swooning over Jessica Biel’s 6 carat radiant cut diamond ring?), to know that the greater the carat, the greater the price.
The most important thing that you must never miss before buying your diamond ring is the 4C’S of diamond that includes colour, carat, cut and clarity. These are the four important aspects of diamond and you must have the knowledge of these four aspects if you want a perfect diamond for your engagement ring.
Giving a diamond engagement ring to your special love will make the engagement experience even more memorable and romantic. Before you purchase the engagement ring, it is important that you understand what goes into assigning a price to the ring. You should not have to spend more money than what the ring is worth as you will have other important expenses to think about as you and your love begin a life together.
