Diamonds in New York

The city that never sleeps is best known for its historic Statue of Liberty, the exciting Times Square, the enormous Central Park, world renowned museums, the magnificent Broadway theater productions and the Diamond District. One of the diamonds capitals of the world, New York lives up to its many reputations. In fact, this little city has been luring tourists from across the globe for quite a few decades now. With Broadway being deemed as the number one place to see any theater production, it welcomes thousands of foreign patrons each year. The city’s rich culture and vibrant nightlife brings in the youth that want to explore a cosmopolitan life. And then there is the populace that comes for the diamonds in New York.

The famous Diamond District is the first place to visit if you want to buy diamonds. Situated in midtown Manhattan, stores here offer every imaginable carat weight, cut, clarity grade and color combination possible. Whether you are interested in buying just one diamond or a number of loose diamonds, whether you want to set the stone in a design of your own or have your mind set on buying a preset solitaire diamond engagement ring, this is the place that will not disappoint you. But if you feel you can’t possibly look around and find something you want by visiting just some of the places here, a good way to find an ideal company is to look for what you need online. Most reputable companies have their official websites on the Internet that provide all needed information about their products as well as services. Many companies have online forms available to fix appointments to see their collection first hand. For tourists that do not want to waste time, this is a viable option as appointments can be fixed well in advance for a particular day.

You can also come across websites that facilitate creating your own ring by choosing the setting, diamond shape, cut, carat and clarity grade. Some of the common jewelry items you can find are women’s diamond engagement rings, women’s and men’s wedding rings, three five or seven diamonds wedding rings, diamond pendants, diamond tennis necklaces, diamond bracelets and diamond earrings. When shopping for diamonds, in addition to looking for the best possible deal within your budget, there are a few tips that you may want to keep in mind. You should look through at least a few collections at different merchants’ establishments. Compare aspects like quality of the diamond, origin and price. And, if you are looking for colored diamonds in New York, be sure to ask if the diamond is naturally colored in that particular hue or has been externally treated in any way.

Loose Heart Diamonds

It is said that the beauty of the diamond depends immensely on the skill of its cutter. This may be bluntly true for almost all diamond shapes except one. The beauty of a heart shaped diamond also depends on the emotion with which it is being presented to a woman and the adornment with which she wears it. This shape in diamonds is particularly popular for wedding jewelry such as engagement rings. Many patrons also buy loose heart diamonds to be set in earrings, necklaces, pendants and bracelets. The heart shape diamonds may be the most romantic shape in diamonds, and thus ideal in any jewelry setting as a gift for someone you love.

The heart shaped diamond is basically a pear shaped diamond that has a cleft at the rounded end. When out shopping for this particular shape, there are a few things you may want to pay special attention to. The first and most important aspect that affects the beauty of the heart shape is its symmetry. It is most vital that you make sure that if you draw an imaginary line through the start of the cleft at the pointed end of the diamond, the two sides that are formed are perfectly symmetrical. Asymmetrical heart shapes can end up looking unattractive and take away from the natural beauty of the stone. You should also make certain that the shape definition and outline of the diamond is superior and beautiful. This aspect plays an eminent role in the beauty factor of the stone once it is set in a jewelry piece.

Another consideration that should be made is about the roundness of the lobes. This aspect of the stone may be subjective, as some prefer more rounded lobes while other like a slender look of the stone. Lastly, you need to watch out for the bow tie formation when it comes to heart shaped diamonds. Also, this shape is best mounted in special settings with five prongs. Two prongs at the lobes of the heart, two on the sides and a V shape prong to protect the point of the heart.

A good way of avoiding this is to stay away from direct online purchases. While you may feel that finding a diamond is quicker online, such a purchase is best made when you have actually seen the stone you buy. There are many diamond traders available online that have their prominence on the Internet, but also offer one-on-one guidance and first hand look at the diamonds they have in store. Plus, many wholesale loose heart diamonds traders offer the diamonds at much better prices than you can ever get at any retail jewelry stores, not to mention they have a bigger selection for you to choose from.
