Some secrets you need to know if you are going to buy a ring
Diamonds for many years are considered symbols of luxury and proof of true love. But if 100 years ago gems were used not only as a decoration, but as a safe investment of capital. Today, due to the increasing scale of gem mining, the situation has changed. Therefore, first of all, buying jewelry, be guided by your own taste and fashion trends.
To the selected stone for a long time pleased you, and perhaps even become a family heirloom, make sure that the decoration with him was at the right time.

See the main characteristics of precious stones. It is not only the size (which is measured in carats), but also the purity of the stone, the color, and also the cut.
The appearance of jewelry
Stones of different sizes create completely different images. A large stone will not necessarily be much more expensive than a smaller one, since it may be inferior to it in other parameters. Smaller diamonds look more elegant. If you want a not very large, but expensive stone - pay attention to its purity.
The shape of the cut can be different
Diamonds and other gems can have not only the usual round, or, as jewelers say, radial shape. In order to preserve the size of the stone as much as possible, sometimes other facets are selected during processing.
Glitter is not always an indicator of the value of a stone
In the old days, jewelers often sought to emphasize the color of the stone, rather than achieve maximum brilliance. Therefore, vintage and antique stones, with a European cut, can be inferior modern in its radiance. This parameter does not affect the price of the stone. Modern stones, having a pointed bottom shape, reflect light better, even with less clarity.
Rosa cut will allow to buy a large stone at a lower price
Such a stone will have less brilliance, but due to the flat faceting without a pointed bottom, its size, and hence the price will be less. Do not have to save on cleanliness.
Diamonds can be not only white
The habitual transparent type of stone, although it is more common, is not the only acceptable. Minerals of this species can be pink, yellow and even gray! And this feature does not make them less valuable.
