4. Purpose and Requirement

General Pointers to Follow When Buying Diamond and Gemstone Jewellery
For purchasing the diamond and gemstone jewellery follow the below-mentioned points.
1. Cut of the Stones
Cuts or facets of the stones determine their radiance and brilliance. Round cut and Princess cut are very popular options for diamond and gemstone earrings because of their brilliance. Excellent or Very Good cut graded diamonds and gemstones have the desired symmetry and proportion.
2. Authenticity of Diamonds and Stones
While purchasing diamond and gemstone jewellery always ask for the certificate of authenticity and ensure that only natural diamonds and gemstones are used. A reputed retailer, whether an online or physical store, will always provide a certificate of authenticity with the purchase. Select the diamonds and gemstones having this certification from GIA, IGI, or HRD.
3. Color of the Diamonds
Diamonds are rated as per their color. The sparkling white or colorless diamonds are the highest in quality and price. Diamonds are graded from the D to Z color scale with grade D diamonds commanding the highest quality and price and Z being the lowest. Pick the diamonds between G to H grades. These are nearly colorless and of high quality and affordable too.
The more the carat weight, the more costly the diamond and gemstone jewellery. Remember that a singular stone of the same weight will command a higher price than a cluster of small stones of the same weight.
