Choosing the Right Jewelry For Any Occasion
Diamonds should be well cut so that it displays good brilliance and sparkle. The symmetry of the diamonds in a bracelet, brooch, and necklace is not important since these diamonds are not the focal point of the piece as it is in a bridal or engagement ring.
If you would like to buy a piece of jewelry with a diamond that doesn't have any noticeable tints of yellow, try buying a jewelry piece that has a diamond with a grade higher than L. If you prefer warmer colors, try buying a ring with a color grade below K.
Diamonds with a G or H color grade are popular alternatives to the D-F grades. If you have enough money in your budget, you can try buying a jewelry piece with a fancy color diamond.
It depends on what you can afford.
Try to avoid diamonds with a clarity grade of I2 and I3. Preferably, you should try purchasing a diamond with a clarity grade of SI2 or higher.
Cutting Style & Stone Shape
Buy a jewelry piece that has the style and shape that you like.
Buy jewelry that has transparent diamonds with the exception of jewelry pieces that contain black diamonds and pieces that have patterns & designs requiring translucent white diamonds. Bargain-priced jewelry tends to have diamonds with inadequate transparency which decreases its brilliance.
Treated diamonds can be an affordable option to untreated diamonds. If you're looking for a jewelry piece that has a big look but is low priced, then, a treated diamond is your best bet. If there isn't a major difference in the treated and untreated diamonds, it's best that you purchase the untreated diamond.
