So, you have your heart set on buying solitaire diamond jewellery but don’t know where to start. We have put together a handy guide with tips to keep in mind while buying solitaire jewellery for the first time.

Consider the Occasion

Are you indulging yourself or buying it as a gift? Or maybe there is a special occasion where you want diamonds to compliment your looks. Or you are simply considering buying an engagement ring. Once you know the occasion you want to buy the diamonds for it becomes easier to choose a design with the perfect setting of diamonds whether it is a simple solitaire ring or a strand of diamonds.

What’s your budget?

Everyone wants value for their $$$ whether you want to splurge or have a modest budget. And the best way to go about it is by deciding on a budget which helps you refine your choices. Research the 4Cs of diamonds and choose the right kind of setting for your diamond. The setting is the most significant part of any diamond jewellery since it makes for the right kind of stage where your diamond can sparkle. Once you pick a favorite design choose the right combination of the 4Cs – Color, Carat, Cut, Clarity, to determine which diamond you choose.


For your peace of mind specially since you are buying for the first time, make sure to have all your diamond certification in place. Buy from a trusted brand who are happy to give you the right certifications. The value of a diamond is determined by factors like its natural rarity, gemological makeup and the quality of its finish which is elaborated in a certificate issued by international institutes like International Gemological Institute (IGI) and Gemological Institute of America (GIA)
