In honor of our ‘”Fall Fire” event that is taking place for the whole month of September, we would like to share a few tips on how to pick the perfect loose Diamond or Gemstone for you. As a jeweler you can trust, understanding and feeling comfortable with your purchase is part of loving your piece of jewelry. At Master Jewelers, we understand that jewelry is a representation of a moment or feeling in time. It is more than a material item.
Buying loose diamond and gemstones comes with a meticulous process. In fact, after 20 years of experience in the jewelry industry, we have perfected selecting loose diamonds and gemstones. All of our diamonds and gemstones receive a thorough and intricate examination before making their appearance in our showroom. Quality is everything! You can also rest assured that all of our diamonds are conflict-free. Here is further reading on how we select our diamonds and the importance of conflict-free diamonds.
Knowing key information about buying loose gemstones is important, but so is knowing what you want and like. While you can somewhat rely on the jeweler’s expertise to ensure the quality of your purchase, only you know what is right for you.
Here are a few things to consider when buying a loose diamond.
- Know what “Carat” weight range you are looking for: This should be the first consideration for you. It is essential to understand that a carat’s weight heavily affects the price of the diamond. Picking the size of the carat is the main element to your design. Not all gemstones will be measured in carats, but size is as equally important. Size of any gemstone weighs in heavy in regards to price.
- Chose your ideal color and optimal clarity grade: This is another price indicator for all diamonds and gemstones. Color and clarity of the grade both dictate the authenticity of the stone. The size doesn’t matter without the value of the stone.
- Diamond shape: What diamond shape best represents you? The shape of the diamond is all about personal taste and the design you are trying to achieve.

Ever find that all rings end up looking the same? Do you have a stone you want, but not the setting? If you want a ring exactly your style that is not only unique but has features that carry personal significance, consider having a custom ring designed. Here’s our guide on how to do it.
Scope Out Style
Inspect the jewelry that your significant other currently wears to get a sense of their jewelry personality. See what catches their eye while browsing magazines, Pinterest, or when shopping. Decide if you want the ring to incorporate an element of significance. If there is a symbol or saying that has special meaning, consider having it engraved on the band.
Also, prowl jewelry stores and galleries to really focus in on what you like. Take notes and make sketches of elements that catch your eye. Research designers whose work you admire.
Envision A Masterpiece
If you want to create a ring that is completely original, the toughest part is pinpointing what you want the ring to “say.” It can be tough for a non-artist to translate emotions into words. Work with what you know. Try writing a paragraph or a list of adjectives that describes how your significant other makes you feel, or traits she or he has that inspire you. If words elude you, look for images that do the job. Reference the list or images when browsing.
Don’t Forget About the Band
The whole point of this engagement ring thing is that there will soon be a wedding band to keep it company. Either go wild and commission a ring that stands alone or design something that looks beautiful alone but truly becomes complete with the addition of a coordinating custom-designed or store-bought band.
While custom design can sometimes be more expensive than purchasing a piece out of the case, keep in mind that it is often much more affordable than you think to create a one-of-a-kind item. Custom rings are more labor and time-intensive since they are hand-assembled. A true craftsman can turn a custom design into a masterpiece.
Start the process early. Allow six weeks for delivery of the ring once the design process has begun. Not only will you need time for ring research and to find a designer you like and trust, but finalizing the ring’s specifications may require some back and forth communication, not to mention the extra time it takes to hand-craft a ring and to engrave the inside, if desired.
