5 Things to Know Before Picking Out Your Engagement Ring
Advice from the experts at Diamonds Direct.
1. BUY THE DIAMOND LOOSE.
Buying a diamond loose, or free of any mounts and rings, gives you a great view of the crystal from all angles. We recommend you compare different diamonds side by side in order to make the best decision.
2. REMEMBER THE FOUR C’S OF A DIAMOND.
Have an expert guide you on the Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat weight of the diamond you had in mind. Diamonds in the industry are rated in this manner so it’s important to understand just what exactly you’re looking at.
3. VIEW A SELECTION OF DIAMONDS.
You’re not getting a true feel for different colors and clarities if you’re only looking at one diamond.
4. DO NOT BUY A DIAMOND SIGHT UNSEEN.
Even though two diamond specifications might be exactly the same, they still could look totally different. At the end of the day, it’s best to buy a diamond in person with your own two eyes!
5. HAVE A BUDGET IN MIND.
By doing this, you will absolutely get the best value for superior cut graded diamonds. Once you go through the education process from an expert, you will be able to view a variety of diamonds and choose the one that is absolutely perfect for you.
