Common Diamond Buying Mistakes You Need to Know

Diamonds have a special meaning. For some, it’s their birthstone and for others, it’s the perfect diamond to set off their dream engagement ring. Because of the importance and value behind diamonds, it’s important that you know what to look for when shopping for the right diamond. Here are 3 common mistakes that shoppers make when shopping for their dream diamond.


Not Understanding the 4 C’s


When shopping for the right diamond, having an understanding of the 4 C’s (cut, color, clarity, carat) can go a long way. Loose diamonds come in all shapes and sizes so it can get confusing when you are looking at a variety of diamonds at one time. Thoroughly research your 4 C’s before shopping for a diamond so you know exactly what to expect.


Rushing the Process


Don’t let the movies fool you. It’s very rare that a guy buys a diamond the minute he walks into a jewelry store, or even on the first try. If you’re shopping for loose diamonds to make the perfect engagement ring, it takes time. Don’t feel rushed. Not all sites and jewelry stores carry the same inventory, so feel free to take your time and shop around.


Nixing your Budget


If you can afford to shop for a diamond sans budget, then kudos to you. However, for the majority of diamond buyers and engagement ring shoppers, setting a budget and saving is the most feasible method for them to buy a ring. The common rule “Your engagement ring should be three month’s salary” is an antiquated rule. Create a budget and stick with it. Don’t feel pressured to buy a diamond that is clearly out of your price range. There are tons of great options for what you can afford.
