Sourcing Diamonds Goals, Rules, and Perspectives

You're getting ready for your engagement and researching your diamond options. You can either buy the stone mounted on the ring set or buy it separately, giving you more options in selecting the diamond and mounting it on the ring setting.

You're getting ready for your engagement and researching your diamond options. You can either buy the stone mounted on the ring set or buy it separately, giving you more options in selecting the diamond and mounting it on the ring setting.

Of course, buying a pre-set stone is easier and requires no effort from you. But buying a loose diamond is risk-free and guarantees a great deal. Having loose diamonds allows you to design or order any piece of art, make it valuable for your loved ones, relatives, start a jewelry business or invest in diamonds, depending on your ambition and personal situation.

Why Buy Loose diamonds?

There are many reasons why loose engagement diamonds are becoming more popular. Couples who choose this option have a lot on their minds, so they look for options that match their thoughts. Couples buy loose diamonds for a variety of reasons.

Countless Design Options

If you have a loose diamond up your sleeve, the design possibilities are endless. When buying mounted diamonds, couples are often limited by design options. Couples who are creative or quirky cannot therefore find the design that they prefer. All you need is a loose diamond and a jeweler who knows how to work with raw stone to create your dream design. Another option is to design a unique ring with a raw stone, which will make it look unusual and unique for her.

Safety

Loose diamonds are far safer and more secure than fixed diamonds. Mounted diamonds don't allow you to see the entire stone, so you're limited to what you can see. It is difficult to make a correct decision if you cannot see the stone fully.

Loose diamonds must also be accompanied by legal documentation and certification from authorized bodies. You can therefore always trace the diamond's origin to the GIA or other official bodies. Buying a diamond ring or other jewelry isn't a luxury because you can't trace the diamond's origin or safety.

Diverse

As stated previously, buyers often have limited options when it comes to selecting a design or color from a jeweler's selection. To overcome these limitations, you must be ready to buy a loose diamond, understand its 4Cs, and distinguish between large and small diamonds. Loose diamond suppliers have a carefully curated mix of diamonds of all shapes and sizes.

These diamonds are new, highlighting their polishing and expert cuts.

Rules To Follow

When buying loose diamonds from the market, you must follow certain rules. Following these rules ensures a flawless purchase, with no errors or omissions that could cause harm or losses.

Find out the major rules not to be forgotten when buying loose diamonds, so you can be confident in their quality and features.

Get A Certificate

A loose diamond certificate is an authentic document that includes a detailed description of all the characteristics of a diamond piece. The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) certifies the certification, which certifies the most important diamond characteristics. The certification will have a detailed list of features, with the diamond piece you buy being graded based on those features.

The certification also verifies the retailer's claims about the diamond. Any claim made by the salesman that isn't supported by the certification should be ignored. It is only appropriate to believe claims that are authenticated and documented.

Ensure that the diamond ring has high C's characteristics that will keep the harmony you desire. A GIA or other official institution's certificate should be checked for authenticity.

Laser Engraving

Each diamond has a laser inscription that refers to a unique ID. To give the diamond a special tag, it is laser engraved. Unique letters and numbers represent the diamond's identity on the tag.

The laser inscription on the diamond can also be used to verify its authenticity. The certificate should match the laser description. With a diamond plot that comes with the certificate, you can determine if the diamond has laser inscriptions. Examine the diamond's edges and curves carefully to gain a thorough understanding of it.

Shop Around

With this information, you can better assess the market value of your diamond. Take your time and visit several jewelers before making a decision.

The term ‘discounted price' is sometimes used by diamond salesmen to entice you to buy their diamond. Best to do your own market research and buy it from official centers and jewelers. Maybe even at a discount, that's more than others are offering.

Examine Enlarged

If you want to buy a diamond, magnify it. Examine your gem carefully for cracks. With the right magnification, you can see all cracks within the diamond, which is very useful. You will be able to tell the diamond's quality better with a clearer view.
