Diamond jewellery is an excellent investment that holds its value and beauty for a lifetime. For some, it can feel overwhelming when deciding which piece to select. That is why there are a few things about diamonds you should know before making any purchases, whether it’s for yourself or for a loved one.
The shape of the rock describes the form of the jewellery. There are many shapes of diamonds available, including round, square, princess, radiant, and more. Each shape has different qualities to it that each individual admires, so it is best to view a wide selection of different shaped diamond jewellery before making any decisions.
The cut of the shape is what gives the gem its brilliance and dramatically impacts the sparkle. The better the diamond’s cut, the more shine and twinkle will appear from the diamond. Talk to a reliable jeweler to view different cuts of diamonds to determine the difference for yourself.
The colour of a diamond isn’t actually about the colour itself, but the lack of colour in the gem. White diamonds are clear and contain little or no colour at all, while other diamonds contain some visible colour. Depending on what type of specific jewellery you’re seeking, the colour options are endless.
The clarity of a ring refers to the number of imperfections in the jewellery. Every diamond has some, but those with the highest clarity have few. The carat of a diamond refers to its weight. The higher the carat the larger the form. Different pieces of diamond jewellery feature different carats of diamonds.
