Advice on Buying Loose Diamonds

Loose diamonds are the most sought-after gift item by many. However, buying loose diamonds is not as simple as many of us may tend to believe. It is necessary to know all about loose diamonds before you venture out to buy. It is essential that you insist and obtain a diamond 'Grading Certificate' when you buy loose diamond. This is a document that spells out the exact characteristics, such as weight, measurements, cut and quality of the loose diamond and it is the proof of the diamond's identity, quality and value. Besides, a diamond certificate also confirms that the diamond you have bought is natural and is not synthetic or man-made. The certificate will authenticate your purchase and assure you that you have not been conned. Besides, this 'Grading Certificate' will also be necessary as prospective buyers will also demand this certificate whenever you choose to sell the loose diamonds. A loose diamond is useful in many different ways, which is one of the reasons why they are so popular. People keep loose diamonds in a display window case for their visitors to admire; they fit loose diamonds into a favorite piece of jewelry which they wear; there are others who would just keep it in their pockets or purses/hand bags as a lucky charm! We are living the computer age and one of the best places to source loose diamonds is the Internet. You will know there are plenty of companies that showcase their loose diamonds on web pages. This will give you an opportunity to compare and contrast the varying styles, shapes and prices and take an informed decision. It may not be prudent to opt for the lowest price when it comes to buying loose diamonds. It is critically important that you do not compromise on quality for a few dollars. Yet if you look around patiently, you are sure to find a decent enough bargain. When it comes to diamonds, the fundamental rule is - the 4C's (Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat) determine the price. Hence you should study these four parameters carefully when selecting loose diamonds. The manner in which a diamond is cut defines its value and reflects its brightness and charm and appeal. People attach a lot of importance to the color of diamonds. Loose diamonds of rare colors are much more expensive than diamonds of common color or even colorless ones. Do not confuse a diamonds carat weight with the size of a diamond. Even though two diamonds may have the same carat weight their appearance in size and diameter measurements can very greatly. As is known, loose diamonds come in different shapes - round, princess (square), emerald, asscher (a square emerald cut), marquise, oval, pear, heart, cushion and more. The round brilliant cut is arguably the most popular and used for solitaire engagement rings. But keep in mind that each shape of the diamond has a fascination, all its own. Please remember all diamonds are unique, no two diamonds are exactly the same which is why it takes years of experience, training and learning to fully understand diamonds. There is an abundance of information available to consumers on the Internet, but not all of them may be genuine. Make it a point to buy your loose diamond only from a reputable diamond dealer.
