Tips & Hints


Diamond Carat

  • While deciding on the size of the diamond to be purchased, importance should not be given only to carat weight. The carat weight is dependent on

    other factors like the diamond's cut grade and the distance (in millimetres) across the top of the diamond.

  • Diamond prices are the highest at the full-carat and half-carat points. In order to get the best deal, customers are always advised to buy a diamond below the full-carat and half-carat mark. This move will help them in saving a large sum of money.
  • According to Jos Alukkas gemologists, the customer should give utmost priority to the diamond cut as it determines the diamond's beauty. Their advice to customers is to purchase the highest cut grade possible within their budget.
  • The diamond's shape gives an idea of the jewel's form like round or oval while the cut is a measure of how the diamond is able to reflect light. It is also known as sparkle. Dull and glassy diamonds represent bad cuts and have dark areas from where light leaks out.
  • The rates of highest cut grade diamonds represent not only their rarity but also the experience and talent required to produce the stone. It also factors in the additional time required for making the stone.

Diamond Color

  • color is the second-most important factor to be considered while purchasing a diamond. The color starts becoming more visible with increasing diamond size. color is an important factor while purchasing diamonds of two carats or more.
  • The visible difference between diamonds of one color grade, for example G to H or I to J, is very minor and cannot be detected by the naked eye. This small difference, however, can have a large impact on the customer's budget.
  • Diamond shapes like round or princess, which reflect more light, can mask more colors
  • The type of metal in which the diamond is set complements its color. Customers can opt for diamonds graded I or J set in yellow gold. Diamonds from color grade of D-H look good with platinum
  • The rates of highest cut grade diamonds represent not only their rarity but also the experience and talent required to produce the stone. It also factors in the additional time required for making the stone.

Diamond Clarity

  • Regarding diamond clarity, Jos Alukkas gemologists say that most of the imperfections are so minute that they are not visible to the naked eye
  • If purchasing on a tight budget, it is better to opt for a diamond with visible imperfections and conceal it under a ring prong. In this manner not only has the purchase been made, the purse strings are also not too stretched
  • As the diamond size increases, so does the size of the facets. This increases the need to purchase the highest-cut diamond possible within the customer's budget
  • Asscher and Emerald-shaped diamonds have long facets, which give priority to transparency over sparkle. For these shapes, Jos Alukkas gemologists recommend that customers buy diamonds with a clarity grade of VS1 or better. This is done so that the imperfections are not so easily visible.

Diamond Clarity

  • According to experts, the diamond's sparkle gives it a much bigger appearance than based on only the carat weight.
  • Different diamonds may have different types of brilliance, scintillation, and fire but the beauty of a well-cut diamond can be compared to none.
