Singapore loose diamonds really relates to diamonds sold in Singapore or by Singaporean diamond companies.
Possibly the impression is that by buying loose diamonds from Singapore it will be cheaper than buying in the States or elsewhere.
In fact, regardless of where one buys diamonds, the criteria for buying diamonds remain the same. This applies to buying diamonds in the US, UK, Asia or even down under in Australia (one of the biggest diamond producers in the world incidentally).
The prime criteria are to:
Understand something about diamonds and how they are graded. This can be achieved by a good patient study of this website.
Know what sort of diamond or diamonds you want and specifically what for, A diamond ring perhaps or a broach for example.
Knowing that buying loose diamonds is better than diamonds that have been set in jewelry since they are much easier to check for flaws and the condition of the diamond.
Know from whom you are buying, especially when buying on line. Ensuring that the full details about each diamond is fully outlined and that each diamond comes with a proper GIA or EGL certificate outlining the qualities of the diamond.
Paying by credit card rather than cash so in the event you discover the diamond is not as described, you can return it and ensure you get your funds back.
Probably the most important of all is to know and understand diamonds. One does not buy a car sight unseen and neither should one buy diamonds sight unseen.
Just plain common sense, some due diligence and a little patience always brings it’s own rewards when it comes to buying diamonds and this applies to Singapore loose diamonds just as much as any other diamonds.
