Pick the diamond
When it comes to choosing your rock, you've got to live by the "four C's." But like all things in life, it's not as simple as it sounds. The C's stand for cut, color, clarity, and carat.
"The four C's of diamond quality are the universal system of quality of any diamond, worldwide," Grauer informs us. "We also suggest that customers purchase GIA-certified diamonds, the GIA is the industry leader in diamond certification." Ask your jeweler about certification and he or she will certainly assist you.
When it comes to the four C's, start with color and clarity, "As for the most important aspects of the four C's, we always start with color and clarity, as these are the first aspect of the diamond that you see." The carat size will be determined by your budget. The bigger the diamond, the heftier the price.
