Considering Loose Diamonds for Beginners
The chances are you’ve heard that when you buy loose diamonds you will get extremely good deals - and this is certainly true. Most jewelers do a similar thing, and if that suits you you can get one too to then fit your diamond within whatever part of jewelry you desire.
After all, should you choose intend to buy diamonds you must know a little bit about evaluating them. Otherwise, you’re going to have no idea what is considered valuable and what isn’t - and could very well end up being taken for any ride.
If you’re a novice, the first thing that you need to know about evaluating loose diamonds is always that you’re going to be looking at four factors especially, and they are:
This can be a terminology that refers to and describes loose diamonds, so you’d better begin to familiarize yourself with it.
To begin with, the ‘color’ of loose diamonds basically simply describes what hue it can be. As you can well imagine, the most expensive diamonds are the type that are completely clear and colorless, as they produce the most brilliant gleams and tend to be considered probably the most ‘pure’.
That being said, you'll find loose diamonds in that range from various hues of brown to yellow, and even some shades of white. Stones that are ‘milky’ are mostly likely impure and tend to have far lesser value.
On the other hand, the ‘cut’ of loose diamonds is solely using the artisan who shaped the stone. Still, it can be of extreme importance considering the cut from the diamond is the thing that will figure out how much light is absorbed, and thus how brightly it sparkles. Diamonds which have many facets which are cut brilliantly can be extremely valuable indeed.
‘Clarity’ of loose diamonds 's what determines how pure these are. In general, the purity of diamonds is denoted while using letters F (Flawless), VVS (Super Slightly included), VS (Very Slightly included), SI (Slightly Included) and that i (Included).
In this instance ‘included’ means how many imperfections it provides, such as flecks that deteriorate its value. Stones with multiple visible flecks, chips, cracks, and so on should be avoided.
Last and surely not least, the ‘carat’ of Diamond Jewellery is how heavy it is (and therefore its size). As you can well imagine, greater and heavier the diamond - the greater valuable it can be, even when buying loose diamonds.
If you are understand the factors which are used to evaluate loose diamonds you should at least have some idea of what to look for when you go on the market and try to purchase some. Always look carefully at diamonds, if at all possible through a specialized magnification device . so that you can spot the tiniest details.
