Just like any other investments, investing in diamond rings is also tricky. You need the right information to ensure a good profit and a valuable acquisition.
Here is a list of tips that will help you make a wise decision when investing in such precious jewelry.
Learn about the 4Cs in determining the value of a diamond ring.
The 4Cs is the universally accepted method for checking the quality of a diamond. It stands for Color, Clarity, Cut and Carat Weight.
Color. A diamond that is as crystal clear as a pure drop of water is higher in value than those with a smidge here and there. Color distinctions are hard to see by the untrained eyes, but these color differences can have a huge impact on the valuation of diamond rings.
Clarity. Diamonds can be graded based on their internal characteristics or inclusions and external characteristics or blemishes. These inclusions and blemishes are usually formed during the diamond forming process, and they greatly affect the appearance and shape of the diamond. Although such rocks are rarely pure, the fewer the inclusions and blemishes are the higher value.
Cut. Diamonds are known to sparkle in the light, and measuring a diamond’s cut grade is based on how well the diamond’s sides interact with the light. A balanced pattern of dark and bright areas scores higher in the cut grade.
Carat Weight. This measures the weight of the precious stone. The higher it is, the higher the value. But take note that 2 diamonds with the same carat weight can have different values, depending on the other Cs.
Always ask for a certification as proof of authenticity. Without it, a diamond ring might be impossible to resell or even insure.
Today’s diamond rings, with their modern designs, still fetch a good sum. The uniqueness of antiques, however, double an item’s value and price. Investing in antiques will also lead you to rare and more unique finds that will bring higher profit.
