Selecting a Diamond

Selecting a Diamond

It is important when selecting a diamond to try and stay within your budget. What is the diamond for? Is the diamond for an engagement ring, a pendant, perhaps a pair of earrings? What size and shape will suit your requirements?

Size and colour are the most important considerations as they are immediately apparent. Clarity requires close scrutiny, so when working to a budget you could consider dropping down a clarity grade. Try and keep to the size which suits you, since small natural marks need not detract from a stone’s beauty.

The Diamond Quality Pyramid was created to help explain the 4Cs in terms of rarity. Click here for information on the 4Cs.

Roger Williams says: “The best advice is to find the diamond size that suits your needs. Don't be afraid to compromise on clarity, but we would rather not compromise on colour. At the Jewellery Studio, we will source the very best diamond for you and will ensure you get the best possible stone for your budget.”

Please don't hesitate to contact Roger by phone or email with any questions and queries you may have. He is always happy to offer you free professional consultation and advice.
