What is more important: quality or size?
For the same amount of money, one has the choice of purchasing a diamond that is white, flawless, and of perfect proportions– and another that contains only a few inclusions and is cut less perfectly. The first diamond will be beautiful, but may be very small. The second may be beautiful also and appear twice as large.
Don’t rely solely on a certificate — the greatest gemological tool that everyone has is their eyes. So let your eyes be the judge! If possible, compare the diamonds side by side. Ask yourself, which one you would receive the most enjoyment from in the long term. If one diamond is say, $1,000 more than another, ask yourself if the more expensive diamond sparkles $1,000 more than the less expensive one.
Wishing you a brilliant day!
