Sunday, 26 December 2010

How to Buy DiamondsThe versatile luster of the diamond makes women thrill and men be delighted with the chance to make the woman happy and pleased while the businessmen can be sure to make a good investment. The interest to the diamonds increased with the latest technologies improved in the sphere of diamond faceting in the early XX century. The precious stone is faceted with more than seventeen facets turning into the amazing jewelry item. And, thus, the diamond fever began in its time.

Diamonds and diamond jewelry are presented for the reason and unreasonably. This is a kind of universal gift to make any person happy and delighted. The issue to purchase diamonds and be sure in the purity of the latter is not so difficult to settle. The entire process of purchase needs to be accurate and appropriate without any fuss and rush.

What to begin with?

Diamond jewelry as well as diamond stones are available for every different style and taste. When stones are presented, there is nothing to do with the design of the jewelry or the brand. Everything depends upon the personal preferences and financial abilities. The other question to solve is the place where the real diamonds are purchased:

Jewelry houses to be the official representatives of reputed brands like Tuffany&Co, Damiani and Chopard;

  • Specialized jewelry houses where the certificates for jewelry are provided;
  • Auction Houses though affordable by collectors and authorities;
  • There are plenty of people in theory though doubtful enough to trust;
  • Small shops or counters at molls where the ourchase of diamonds is not recommended at all;

Internet shops with new and doubtful activity though there are some eligible and reliable to work with. Once you want to purchase diamonds online, all the issues should be controlled and verified to avoid fake and fraud. First, consider the address of the internet site when the url address has a protective letter s like https://... Second, the comments and feedback from the real buyers are also significant being thousands in umber, not less with positive than negative opinions;

You don’t need to put yourself to risk unreasonably, though, since when you can touch and check the diamond, it is far more pleasant and decisive to make a purchase.

Specific procedure to choose diamonds

Once you define with the place to purchase diamonds, you keep from rushing to the biggest stone that shines. Brilliance is not the quality. The quality of the real diamond depends on several parameters as weight, color, purity rate and faceting.

Carat, the weight of the precious stone equals to approximately 0,2 grams. The popular belief that the more carats have diamonds - the better is erroneous in most cases, especially when the other three parameters are not ideal to match. Stones weighing one carat or five grams are deemed large gems.

There is the special scale to identify colors with separate nominations for the intensity of shade for fancy or colorful diamonds. So, the symbols D, E, F,G, H indicate the transparent white diamonds with the blue tint and the person not expert in diamonds is not able to identify the finest difference between them. The other letters state the availability of the yellow tinge though the diamonds are ten times as cheap. The color diamonds are far more expensive for they are rare in nature.

Purity is the factor of availability or absence of inclusions like air bubbles, crystals and so forth in the stone. The special scale is used for identification from Flawless rate is given to absolutely pure but rare diamond Included when inclusions are visually seen. When the strange particles are seen at magnification at the superficial side of the diamond, you’d better consider your decision to buy the stone in favor of the purer stone of the other color of less value, though.

The faceting makes the stone precious and the diamond is shaped and shines reflecting the light.  The faceting is defined by the quality and performance. There are four quality evaluation techniques from А for the excellent to D as for the less good. The shapes include the rounded, princess, usher and heart, totaling ten standard faceting techniques. The most demanded is the round diamond since the match if its facets gives the best luster and is appropriate for all jewelry accessories. But there are exclusive types of faceting. Thus, Robert Cohen invented the unique technique to make the diamonds shaped with hundreds of facets while the classic facet total in 57 only. The diamond he made plays with theastonishing luster.

The quality of faceting is possible to define with the sheet of paper with printed text. When the round diamond is put onto the sheet of paper, all the fifty seven facets will reflect the letters in the way that the paper seems completely clean under the stone. However, the intensity of brilliance is not the factor to classify the authenticity of the diamond since the diamond substitutes like fianit and moissanite with higher reflective capacity.

The symmetry of facets and the number on the superficial part of the diamond can be verified. Fake diamonds show not more than nine visual facets made in deviation from the perfection.

The jewelry with the diamond from the reputed brands is better to purchase in the country of the manufacturer.

The label on the jewelry should tell NATURAL and no other words like almost NATURAL and other confusing words.

The diamond in the jewelry should be seen from all angles and the frame should be ring-shaped without walls. Otherwise the lower part of the stone will be covered and it will not shine and play at all. If a crack is noted, it should be of stepwise structure while it is more like snail-shaped with the glass. 

With the fake diamond the stripe of the fatty substance applied to the stone comes to drops while the genuine diamond will have the even trace of it.

There are also cultivated diamonds though they have nothing to do with glassy fake jewelry and sometimes they show far better quality parameters as compared with the natural diamonds. This is the special cultivation technology which is done in laboratories and scientific institutes. And such diamonds are rare to see in common stores.
