The beauty of a diamond has long been acknowledged and cherished since time immortal. If you are planning to buy a high-grade diamond, you must know the different forms of diamonds including round brilliant, trillion, heart, princess, cushion, and emerald.

As there is no other purest gemstone to express the deepest emotions than a diamond, make sure your diamond is worth the price you pay for it.

 No matter how expensive a diamond you might be buying, knowing your four C’s is essential. The 4Cs being clarity, cut, colour and carat – this is starting point in the evaluation process.

 Selecting the right diamond for your loved one or for yourself should be a memorable experience. As you will look at a multitude of stunning diamonds, you will be able to discover the ideal gemstone. However before you buy, make sure the diamond is certified from an authorised body of repute like IGI – the International Gemological Institute from Antwerp. Getting your diamond certified from the shop alone is not enough. Later when you want to sell or upgrade, only a certificate from an independent grading body will be applicable everywhere.  So make sure that you get your glittering investment certified for authenticity.
