Tips for once you decide to start looking for your diamond ring

Jewellery is as much an emotional investment as it is a financial one, which means it can be expensive. Pieces like an engagement or wedding ring are a lifetime commitment, so making sure you find the perfect fit for you is important. So here are a couple of pointers to help you with the start of an exciting journey into the world of jewellery.

  • Make sure that you do your research on the jeweller you are going use. Whether you are using a local or large jewellers make sure to discuss and confirm the cut and clarity grades which they can offer.
  • Sizing is very important and something that is quite difficult to guess, make sure you know what size you are going to need. Especially if you are buying to give to someone else.
  • Be sure to know how much you are looking to spend, then our staff can help you find the perfect ring for the perfect price.
  • Know your diamonds, Carat, Cut, Colour, Clarity are the four C’s you need to focus on.
  • Get to know a little about the different cuts and shapes, but also which you or the person you are buying for prefers.
  • The metals you make the rings out of is vital, especially if someone has allergies. So make sure that you have an idea not only for look, but also practicality.
  • Settings: How do you want the stone to look, four claws will make a stone look squarer, six claws will give it a more circular look.
  • Are you looking for a solitaire (single stone) or are you wanting something with more than one stone. Keep in mind this can affect the price, but definitely gives a bit more sparkle.
  • Does the ring come with a valuation? It may even come with a certificate from the Gemological Institute of America. This information will give you all the details on your diamonds or coloured stones.
