The 4 C’s to Buying Diamonds

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but guys consider them the enemy because guys don’t know much about them. Knowing about the 4 C’s when buying a diamond can help you with another C (and it’s an important one): Cost.

Make sure you understand the 4 C’s to a diamond. Visit jewelrybyericinc.com to learn all about them.

Cut Diamond buyers often mistake cut for shape–a diamond’s cut refers to its reflective quality, and the perfect cut will reflect light up through the center of the stone. Have you wondered why some rings sparkle and others don’t? This is why. If you’re looking for a ring that sparkles the most, cut will be very important to you. You should get a diamond cut grade of Good or better in order to have your ring reflect majority of the light that enters it.

Color- A colorless diamond is the rarest and most valuable diamond, so the more color a diamond has, the less rare it is. The color system ranges from D (the highest grade and colorless) to Z, which means the diamonds have a light yellow color. Unlike school, grades D, E, and F are the best and most valuable. The differences between these three grades can’t be detected by the untrained eye, so if you’re looking to save but still want the highest color, a diamond with an F on the color scale is perfect. If you’re looking for a great value, any diamond with a G, H, I, or J grade (near colorless) will be great for you–because they have traces of color, setting them in a white gold or platinum setting will offset the color of the diamond. Additionally, if a warm color appeals to your loved one, you can spend half the money buying a K diamond than you would on a G one.

Clarity– A blemish on your skin makes you freak out, but diamonds naturally contain blemishes (or inclusions), though most cannot be seen by the naked eye. Therefore, a diamond without any blemishes is considered rare, which means it is very valuable. An internally flawless diamond has no blemishes that can be detected by the naked eye. If you’re looking for the best value, a diamond with very very small inclusions (VVS) or very small inclusions (VS) will give you a gorgeous diamond with a small blemish or two. Then again, don’t we all have a small blemish or two?

Carat– Often mistook for size, carat is the weight of the diamond. Diamond carats range from .25ct (which is 4.1 mm), .50ct, .75ct, 1ct, 1.25ct, 1.50ct, 1.75ct, 2+ct. For those who want the best value, getting a lower carat diamond with a higher cut will make the ring sparkle. After all, size doesn’t matter, right?

Round Cut – The traditional, classic brilliant round diamond cut has 58 facets and sparkles more than any other cut. One of the reasons it’s so popular is because it is all face–you get more visible diamond for less money.

Cushion/Antique Cut – A mix between an oval and a rectangle. The cut gives it the appearance of a pillow, hence the name cushion cut. This cut has been around for almost 200 years, and today has become a popular style as seen on many celebrity fingers.

Pear Cut – This unique cut resembles its namesake. The pear cut has a large face, similarly to the round cut, and offers a high level of brilliance.

Emerald Cut – Also referred to as the Art Deco cut and worn by celebrities such as Beyonce, this rectangular cut features beveled corners and pyramid-like facets. This cut accentuates the stone, so it’s vital to make sure your stone’s clarity is the highest diamond grade you can afford.

Heart Cut – This cut lives up to its name–a diamond in the shape of a heart. Because of its shape, the heart cut is perfect for hopeless romantics.

Marquise Cut – An oval-shaped diamond with elongated pointed ends. It originated in the court of King Louis XIV of France, and is the diamond choice of royalty and is considered one of the most elegant diamond cuts.

Asscher Cut – If you want a diamond that shines, this is the one for you. It has the properties of an emerald cut, but the facets are even more pronounced, giving it that extra sparkle.

The Place- Pick a place that has the right atmosphere (Romantic Spots in NJ). This moment is something that both of you have talked about at some point, so you should some places in mind already. A few questions to ask yourself: Is having family and friends present important? Is a romantic atmosphere desired, or does your partner prefer it to be casual for more spontaneity? Is it somewhere that already has special meaning to you, like where you went on your first date?

Relax- Remember to take a deep breath and relax. It’s important to stay calm. This will prevent you from giving away the surprise. A good way to stay relaxed is to stretch—this loosens up tension in the muscles. Save the champagne for after the proposal!

Bezel- Perfect for an active lifestyle, this engagement ring setting ensconces the diamond with a custom thin metal rim.
Channel- This setting secures smaller diamonds in a row in the band of the ring. The diamonds are set close in the grooves of the channel.

Jewelry Maintenance Tips

Everyone knows that diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Just like you have to maintain relationships to keep them strong, proper jewelry maintenance is vital for girls and diamonds to stay best friends for life.  These are some great guidelines from Jewelry by Eric that all jewelry owners should know about jewelry maintenance:

 

Beat the Heat: Let your skin get a summer tan, not your jewels. Do you know that if opals are exposed to excessive heat they can turn white or brown? Also they can develop tiny cracks and/or lose their play-of-color. Heat affects gems too, because it can cause gems to lose their natural moisture that keep them beautiful.

 

Avoid Chemicals: Make sure to keep chemicals away from your precious metals like gold, silver and platinum. Chemicals damage or discolor these metals. Even products like hairspray, lotion, and perfume cause permanent damage to the surface of your pearls and gems like emerald.

 

Safe Cleaning Methods: Be careful when you’re cleaning your jewels. Soft gems can scratch very easily. If you’re cleaning pearls, use a brand new makeup brush and soapy warm water to clean them. Always make sure you’re using a light touch when applying pressure to your jewels.

 

Store Jewels Properly: Often jewels are sold in a box or pouch, and either is a great way to store your jewelry. Jewelry boxes that have individual padded slots for rings and posts for hanging necklaces & bracelets are perfect.

 

Have It Professionally Cleaned: Jewelry by Eric offers cleaning and polishing for your jewels. As a grand master jeweler with over 30 years of experience, Jewelry by Eric will make sure your jewels are in the best condition possible.

 

Using these tips will ensure that your jewelry and you are bffs and shine bright like diamonds in the sky all the time.
