Diamonds – flawless, sparkling, blinding, dazzling. Considered a woman’s best friend. Known as being forever. Symbol of romance and declarations of undying love. Often igniting a debate over what is a better buy – gold jewellery? Or diamonds? I don’t think it’s a fair comparison. It’s like comparing apples with oranges. They’re both good, both valuable, and both beautiful.
The word diamond is believed to have evolved from the Greek ‘adamas’, which signifies eternity. Diamonds were considered lucky charms, and were worn to ward off evil and safeguard the wearer. But when we buy diamond jewellery today, we only look at designs, beauty, and of course, price. Not many of us have the luxury of picking up jewellery and not looking at price tags. Luckily, these days, when we buy jewellery online, we are able to see the prices along with images. The advantages of seeing gold necklace designs with prices is that your decision and reaction can be quick, eyes lighting up, you quickly picking up another device to check your bank or savings details, or, if things are not favourable, eyes clouding over with disappointment.
Here are some pointers on how to choose your diamond jewellery:
The Four Cs to consider
- The first C is colour. A colourless stone is supposed to be perfect, according to experts. However, there are some very good diamonds that have a tinge of colour.
- The second C is Carat. This refers to the weight of the diamond, and is an important factor that helps decide the use of the diamond in jewellery.
- Clarity, the third C, is critical. Specks, cracks and fissures, which might not be visible to the naked eye, might impact the clarity of the stone.
- And the final C to consider is the Cut. Cut refers to the way the diamond is shaped. The better the cut of the diamond, the more luminous it is.
Match the Jewellery to the Occasion and Intention
Are you buying the diamond as a gift? Is it for an occasion? Is it for yourself? How will it be used? Will it be worn constantly? Or will it just be brought out for special occasions?
Answers to the above questions will help you make the right decision about what to buy – whether you want to pick a ring, earrings, bracelet, or necklace. Also, whether you want to buy something functional that’ll not get in the way of your daily activities.
The All-Important Price Issue
Most of us are quite judicious and know our budgets. These days, with so much information available online, it’s easy to have an estimate of what your chosen item of jewellery is likely to cost. When it comes to diamond jewellery, most jewellery websites will clearly give you details of pricing. My friend recently bought jewellery for her daughter’s wedding. She compared prices, and chose one she liked after checking out diamond necklace prices.
Diamond necklace price in India largely depends on a number of factors. The price is directly dependent on cut, clarity, colour and carats and not just the prevailing metal price on the day of purchase. Unlike a diamond necklace, an uncut diamond necklace costs much less, as the stones do not undergo the process of cutting and polishing.
Diamonds to Suit You
Your wardrobe, your profession, your personality and of course, your taste – all these need to be factored in when you choose diamond jewellery to suit you and your needs.
Diamond jewellery can give you that timeless, elegant look. The beauty of diamond jewellery is that it can complement and compliment a woman of any age. Also, it’s colourless dazzle can match outfits of any colour.
