Solitaire diamond rings, with their lone diamond set onto a band of gold, platinum, palladium, titanium or other precious metal, can make quite a statement. As the diamond has no other gemstones to enhance or distract from it, it will need to be chosen with special care. It will also need to be bought from a reputable company like Gold Diamond Jewelry.
Technology has advanced to the point where it’s difficult to tell man made diamond rings from rings set with natural stones. The criteria for assessing the diamond’s quality is the same in both cases. The buyer should look for:
Clarity is the measure of how many flaws and inclusions a diamond has. Most diamonds have flaws, but a good quality diamond should be eye clean. This means no flaws can be seen with the naked eye, though some may be detected with a jeweler’s loup.
This is the size of the diamond. The carat size is up to the buyer or the person who the ring is being bought for!
A diamond solitaire can come in many cuts. These can include the traditional brilliant cut, the rose cut, the princess cut or the marquise cut.
Unless the buyer is looking for a colored, or fancy diamond, the best quality diamond is colorless. As with flaws, most diamonds have some color. But a good diamond should appear colorless to the naked eye.
With these tips in mind, the buyer’s in a good position to buy the perfect solitaire diamond ring.
