Choosing the right diamond ring has always been a major headache for all guys since somebody decided to put this sparkling object on a metal ring and suggest it to be a ‘must-have’ for all marriage proceedings. What has become a matter of fact is that this thing has become a symbol of eternal love. Hence, purchasing it has become inevitable for any individual moving on from singlehood to marriagehood. Since it is impossible to hide away from this fact (unless your personal goal is to be a long life bachelor!), it is important to understand some of the factors that should be considered before buying the ring.
There are also ways to sell your ring on consignment – there are plenty of advertisements online and in local newspapers for jewelers who want to do it for you. But you should remember to be extremely careful. There is not only the risk of getting a lot less money than you expected, but also being plainly cheated. Do not send your diamond to them until you make sure they have a trading license with the Bureau of Consumer Affairs, a great reputation and at least several years on the market. Check if your buyer is a member of Jewelers’ Vigilance Committee – this will increase the chance of an honest and transparent deal.
If you type in the word “diamond” into your browser you will get a plethora of information on diamonds; loose diamonds, diamond engagement rings, diamond ear rings, bracelets, pendants and on and on it goes. Much of the information is sales driven, some is designed to teach you the specifics of diamond buying -the 4 C’s: cut, color, clarity and carat weight. These are important. You need to know them, their relation to one another and how they help set price. It is by this criterion that these technical issues will help you determine what is not only right for her, but right for you as well.
You can measure the quality and size of the diamond with the help of the criterion called as carat. A carat is equal to 200 milligrams. A perfect diamond ring will have a full carat diamond of quality. You also should be looking for the Four Cs while buying a 對戒. These four Cs are carat, clarity, cut and color.
Cut is very important as it determines how your diamond will shine. Always remember that if your diamond has ideal cut then it will capture all the light and will reflect it back to the height of its potential. But if your diamond cut is too shallow then it will not gather light. And if its cut is too deep then it will take the light but will not reflect it back.
If you have ever seen a 2 carat diamond on the hand of a woman, then you know why it is called a “statement diamond”. The size is extraordinary and when it refracts flashes of fire and white light it will turn heads among a crowd of people. A 2 carat diamond makes a statement of luxury about the woman who wears it. It also makes people wonder about the wealth and status of the man who acquired it for her.
Buying diamonds is both an investment and luxury. Before indulging in this activity though, know your real diamonds first and protect yourself from fake ones.
