Tips On Buying Silver.Ag Brand Diamond Jewelry
Diamond jewelry is still often the jewelry of choice to celebrate important events or express your affection for someone. However, these pieces can be very expensive and it is largely due to the value of the stones in any given piece. Learning more about how to buy quality stones may make it easier for you to find beautiful items at prices that are somewhat more affordable.

One reason that diamonds are so popular is their durability. Unlike other stones that may chip or crack, the surface of a diamond is very hard to damage. Some stones may suffer damage if they are worn for many years but this is much less likely than with any other stone.
With diamonds, weight is expressed in carat weight. A larger stone will have a higher carat weight than a smaller stone will be. A higher carat weight in a single stone will rapidly increase the price and very large stones may wind up being so expensive they are unaffordable. Smaller stones that are grouped together can often be more affordable than a single stone of the same carat weight would be.
Color can often be an issue when it comes to value and pricing. Some fashionable pieces feature colored diamonds in hues of pink, blue, brown or yellow. Some pieces will use a combination of different colored stones or match diamonds with other gem stones. However, colorless diamonds are still by far the most valuable. If a stone has some faint color to it then it will be less valuable and have a lower price tag than a diamond that is white or colorless.

Diamonds sparkle because of the facets that are cut into them. The overall shape can be round, oval or pear shaped. Often one shape or another will be considered to be more valuable because it is trendy. A well cut diamond reflects the light and seems to burn with an inner fire.
Once they are cut, they are set. Diamonds can be channel or prong set and the style of the piece will depend on which setting method is used. You can find many different pieces if you look carefully in online auctions or jewelry stores.
