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.
