If you had the money, would you buy diamond earrings? If you answered yes to this question, you should know a few things first. If you are already a diamond aficionado, you probably don't need to keep reading. However, for those who are a little in the dark as to what to look for, let me give you some helpful pointers. You will need to know a bit about diamonds in order to avoid being ripped off and to know what your diamond dealer is talking about.
I suggest bringing a checklist wherever you go to Buy Diamond Earrings. This will help you organize all the diamonds you looked at and where you saw them. When you buy diamond earrings, start with writing down the name of the store, the address and the phone number. Write down what kind of jewelry you looked at such as earrings or rings. Most importantly, write the price.
Buy Diamond Earrings the Smart Way
On your checklist, you will need to record the cut, color, carat weight and shape of each diamond you look at. If you are looking at earrings with several diamonds, do this for all of them. With the cut, record if the diamond is Ideal, Premium, Very Good, Good, Fair or Poor. If something besides these choices is told to you, get clarification, and write that down.
Recording the clarity is very important. This states the degree to which the diamond has inner and outer flaws. Virtually perfect diamonds will have a rating of F (flawless) or IF (internally flawless). Next grades down are VVSI 1 and 2. This stands for very very slightly included. You must magnify the diamond 60 times to see any of the flaws. VS is very slightly included and needs magnification of 10 times for flaws to appear. SI is slightly included under 10 times magnification. Any lower than the last one and you start to be able to see flaws with the naked eye.
