Buying a Diamond

This day and age, there is a lot of knowledge on buying a diamond.  Many companies talk about the 4 C’s – color, clarity, cut, and carat weight.  The one thing missing and the most important is the personal experience with an educated gemologist who has spent years sorting diamonds with a trained eye, a set of master gems, a light source to distinguish color, and the knowledge of the correct measurements and cutting along with polishing to radiate the brilliance to its highest potential.  We have witnessed on-line that you can purchase a one carat diamond with the same description, but there is a large range of difference in diamonds within the same price range.  That’s why it’s important for a diamond buyer to build a relationship with someone he trusts and has the best interest in making the purchase for the interested party with complete confidence that they are going to get the most for their dollar.  Some advertise diamonds 50% to 75% off, or that they cut out the middle man.
