One can purchase a ring or necklace, or whatever piece of jewellery takes ones fancy, and have the loose diamond set in the jewellery piece for a nominal sum.

The actual cut, color and clarity are more important than the carat weight. Probably the cut is the most important as a good cut enables the light to reflect through the top of the diamond. This is followed by the color, which really should be as clear or transparent as you can afford. Then the clarity. The smaller and less inclusions (imperfections) there are in the diamond the more valuable it is as the more the light can reflect through it without being distracted. Lastly the carat weight as, a better quality smaller diamond is worth much more than a heavier poorer quality one. This is something you need to watch with discounted diamonds from jewellers. They will promote how much weight you are getting for your dollar but it is vital that you have the color, clarity and cut properly checked by a diamond laboratory to ensure the quality of the diamond or diamonds you are purchasing are up to scratch.

It is important to know what you are buying when purchasing loose diamonds princess cut and not just take the dealer or jeweller’s word for it.
