What are Your Tips for Choosing the Best Diamond?
The key to buying diamonds is to buy what you like the best. The best condition for viewing diamonds is face up and with varying amounts of light. More light will give you more sparkle, but low indirect light will show you how well the diamond transforms even the tiniest amount of light. Cup a diamond, either loose or mounted, in your hands. You'll be amazed.
In addition, color, clarity, cut and carat weight are rarity factors that affect diamond value. White is more rare than tinted, clean is more rare than included, and big is more rare than small. Consider your budget when selecting gems with more rare grades. In the end, choose the diamond that pleases you the most.
