HOW TO BUY DIAMONDS ONLINE: A BEGINNER’S GUIDE

Today, more and more people are moving toward the online market. Cheaper prices and easy transactions attract a lot of contemporary buyers. Consequently, we get a lot of inquiries and emails from people looking for advice on buying diamonds online.

However, what I’ve found is that a lot of the ‘online crowd’ are first-time buyers and know little to nothing about diamonds in the first place.

What Diamond Shapes Work Best

Looking for a diamond? Many of us will immediately think of the classic round diamond shape. Although, round brilliant cut is the most popular shape. But they are a number of other shapes available. Most diamond shapes are round, square (cushion), rectangular (princess, Asscher, emerald, radiant), heart-shaped, pear-shaped, oval, or marquise (like a pear but pointed on both ends). The distinction between a diamond’s shape and cut may be confusing at first. The shape refers to the appearance of the stone, and the cut to the diamond’s ability to reflect light.

Choosing which shape you want is really a question of personal preference and can be tricky for many people.. What shape visually appeals to you the most?

In the following article by Jonathan Brownell, he explains in detail a comprehensive list of the most popular diamond shapes and their characteristics.

The Most Popular Cuts of Diamonds For Engagement Rings

The traditional round diamond has 57/58 facets, 57 without a Culet and 58 with a Culet. This is the traditional pattern that has been cut for about a hundred years. As time has passed, the precision with which the pattern is cut is about the only thing that has changed. The pattern is still the same.

When looking to purchase a traditional round, the goal is  to get a diamond that is balanced. Seeking optimal light performance in a traditionally cut stone is not a good approach and is going to leave you frustrated. What you want to be looking for is a good value for the weight, color, clarity, and cut. See full post here:

What diamond shape and cut work best for you? Consider the hand that will wear it, your taste and your lifestyle. These are the most important factors when choosing a ring that you will cherish for a lifetime.
