Shopping For Diamonds? Here are some Handy Tips


Diamonds glimmer and have a tendency to trigger feelings of awe, joy or even romance. When searching for diamonds in New York you will find that the city offers you a wide variety of sources for the precious gems.

There are lots of dealers for diamonds in New York. This plethora of dealers allows customers to be able to shop around and find the stone that speaks to them individually. Shopping for diamonds should be a thrilling experience and in a city like New York the atmosphere is set for such an experience since the city exudes an ethos of excitement. But being duped into buying fake or low quality diamonds for high prices cannot be fun at all. This is why you need to arm yourself with all the information necessary to make you and informed customer.

You need to be aware of the criteria that help to determine the value of a diamond. Dealers and other stakeholders in the industry typically refer to them as the four Cs. These are the cut and shape of the stone, its color, carat and clarity.

Very few people recognize that carat in jewelry circles is really the weight of the item. Generally the heavier the color diamond, the higher the value and price will be. This is so because the higher the carat, the rarer the piece is. You should note also that two diamonds may have the same carat but different prices due to the other factors cut and shape, color and clarity.

The value of a diamond is reliant on its color and color indicates the amount of yellow tinge that can be seen on the piece. Sometimes the tinge is so vague that a microscopic view is required. Diamonds do come in colors in the traditional sense (red pink etc) but it is really the yellow hue in white diamonds that determines the value and when reference is made to color as a determining factor for quality it is usually the ‘yellowness’ that is being  spoken of.

Remember that diamonds are like fingerprints since each is unique in its own right.  One of the things that help to increase the rarity of a diamond is its cut and shape. With all the best diamonds in New York and the many discerning buyers, dealers have learnt to market their products well. You should ensure that you look beyond all the marketing ploys to ensure that you are satisfied after purchase.
