This type of gold is rare and precious which makes it a perfect match with a diamond. Before you buy your Valentines Day gifts it is important to know the difference between a good diamond and a bad one. The following are some tips and suggestions to choosing proper diamond jewelery.
First take a trip to your local mall. Look, but don’t buy your diamond ring there. In a couple of hours you will become familiar with “The 4 C’s”, and you want to judge with your own eyes the difference between the lowest grade diamond, and a high grade expensive diamond. The 對戒 salesperson will most likely pressure you to buy their most expensive diamond. Don’t be shy: ask to see their least expensive diamond as well. Then move on to the next Jewelry store.
Examination of the four Cs. This method is a sure fire way of determining whether your diamond is real or fake. The four Cs talk about – color, carat, cut and clarity. The color of a diamond is established with a standard grading system. The grading system uses alphabet letters ranging from the letter “D” to the letter “Z” to categorize a diamond’s color. Prices are fixed according to the grading of stones but the most expensive stones are graded between D-J. Other diamonds are graded from K-Z and come in various shades and colors, including dark brown and gray.
The first to start with is the cut of the diamond. This is not the shape of the diamond, like princess, pear or round, but rather the brilliance or its reflective nature. The way a diamond is cut, the angles and the way it is finished is what makes it reflect more light and sparkle.
Lasers are occasionally used to cut them. The process is very precise, but much more expensive. Lasers can also be used to cut letters or symbols onto the facets of the diamond.
You can make money from any gold bracelets and necklaces you have, without having to sell your entire pieces. Instead, you can just trim off some excess chain and sell it, and keep the important part to wear. If the chain is real gold, and there’s a lot of excess, you can make a couple hundred dollars without losing anything you need.
Just because diamond rings are not a great engagement ring, doesn’t mean they are not a great investment. There is something about the right shade of yellow diamond that illuminates a woman like nothing else on earth. If it’s an engagement ring you are looking for, you would be much better off buying a clear diamond, symbolizing your feelings for her.
