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.
