Diamond is not the same as other stone
Before you start looking for the antique engagement rings London at a jewelry store, it is important to make one thing clear: diamond is not just diamond.
The engagement rings London is a natural product and as such is always unique. Even two similar stones from the same expression are therefore never identical. Especially when buying jewelry – and this cannot be emphasized enough at this point it is therefore extremely advisable to look at each stone in nature before buying it.
Because although the diamond market is very transparent and many certificates (such as GIA) meanwhile increase the security of the stone valuation, most of the factors for evaluating the price are based on subjective judgments.
So be sure to have the real diamond shown before you buy and explain it through the magnifying glass. An imitation diamond (also called zirconia) can never reproduce the natural brilliance and its effect in the ring.
But what do you have to watch out for when you look at a diamond through a magnifying glass to understand its value?
Basically, the value of a diamond is defined by its so-called 4Cs: Carat, Color, Clarity and Cut.
The most famous factor in determining the value of a diamond is certainly its weight, which is measured in carats. As a rule of thumb: the higher the carat, the higher the value, whereby the one-carat (with good quality of the other 3Cs) is a sound barrier, which is usually only broken after several years of marriage and is intended to express the appreciation for the partner. In the case of engagement rings, however, the usual weight of a diamond is usually between 0.30 and 0.50 carat
Diamonds are natural products and as such are rarely perfect. Many stones have so-called inclusions, which, if they are visible to the naked eye, appear as black dots inside the stone, because the light refracts differently here. To include this peculiarity in the value of the stone, the Clarity factor is used, which ranges from magnifying glass (IF) to coarse inclusions (P3) and gradually measures the purity of a diamond. As with the Color factor, you should also rely on high quality for the Clarity factor in your solitaire to get the sparkle of the stone. It is therefore not advisable to buy a stone under (SI quality).
The last of the 4Cs stands for the cut and describes, in addition to the type of cut (e.g. brilliant, princess or cussion), the implementation of the cut.
