Purchase a natural or lab-grown diamond may be overwhelming as there is an array of information. The research may consume you before even considering the financial commitment. However, you can follow these 5 tips to simplify the process and make it a pleasant experience.

1. Consider your budget. Determine a maximum amount you are willing to spend on the diamond and try not to waver from it during the purchase process.

2. Assess the 4 C’s. Appraise the 4 C’s – color, clarity, cut, and carat weight – to determine the overall value of the diamond.

3. Look at the diamond under magnification. Examine the diamond up close to check for flaws and to assess its beauty.

4. Shop around. Compare options from different jewelers before making a decision about what diamond to purchase.

5. Get a certificate. Ask for a certificate or grading report from a reputable gemological laboratory to verify the quality of the diamond before you buy it.
