Gift Yourself a Diamond.
The most appreciate in the diamond world are white diamonds. A diamond from a man is a woman's best friend. Diamonds are the most immortal thing present on the earth. Thus they become the best gift for any celebration.Diamonds are the hardest crystals in the nature. A diamond can cut another diamond and no other substance will do it. To choose a right diamond is a responsible work. There are certain aspects that you should keep in mind before purchasing and gifting a diamond. Diamonds are measured by 3c aspects. The 3s are Clarity-Color, Cut and Carat. Diamonds are priced depending on these factors.
The best for a diamond is to be colorless. But there is some color in almost all diamonds, and mostly is not visible by unarmed eyes. There are six groups in total under which they are graded. The color is determined by D,F,G,HI,J,K categories and these means the best are those in the front D,F,G…. The diamond cut stays for diamond brilliance. Before sell diamonds are cut accurately and then polished to bring them in a state of brilliance. Cut diamonds can skilled people only. The better cut the higher value the diamond gets.
Cutting can be performed with deep, shallow or with perfect length. These different types of cuts have significance attached to it. In a deep cut the light escapes from all the sides. Because of this the diamond looks dull and darker. And if the cut is too shallow the light is reflected generally in the lower parts of the diamond, making it to loose its luster.
And of course when buying a diamond it matters what weigh it cares. Carat is the measured of weigh. One carat is 0.2 grams. A better diamond carries a higher carat size.Is well known gifting a diamond is beyond the comparison of any other gift. And of course this means any kind of diamond jewelry.

I invest in Diamonds.

I have learned people invest excessive cash in gold, precious stones, Jewelry and depose in overseas banks. I, specially, choose to stack with diamonds and to take a brake from finance, mortgage calculator and other things. This is a stone which attracts with a lot, lot of things and owing diamonds is just amazing.
I find out what diamonds are graded for certification by laboratories using grading criteria. Four of these criteria are critical to understand when making a diamond investment. The criteria are: color, cut, clarity and carat.
When comes to diamonds, like in my business Real Estate morgage calculator does the job, here I ask questions and make my opinion about the piece. I always look and select only certified diamonds and try trade a fair price.
Color of a diamond refers to the presence or absence of color. Because a diamond with no color allows maximum light to pass through, colorless diamonds are preferred for their sparkle.
Cut refers to diamond reflective quality. Most diamonds are cut with 58 facets. The brilliance of diamonds is heavily dependent on the cut. The different angles and the finish of a diamond determine its ability to reflect light and make its brilliance and fire. The cut of a diamond can have an impact on its durability as well as its beauty. Some cutting faults can make a diamond prone to breakage. A diamond that is cut too thin can also cause light to leak out of the back and the diamond will lose some of the sparkle and appear not to shine.
The diamond clarity is determined by presence of inclusions on the stone. During the formation process, inner flaws, or inclusions occur in most diamonds. Clear diamonds add to their brilliance and they are rarer and highly priced. To be considered “flawless”, a diamond must have no surface or internal imperfections visible upon being viewed by a skilled diamond grader using 10 power magnifications.
Carat is the unit of weight by which diamonds are measured. One carat is equal to 200 milligrams. A carat is divided into 100 segments called points. 150 points would equal one and a half carats. Be advised about scamars, they bancrupt diamond sellers.
In order to avoid scams I only deal with reputable jewelers. I always take a diamond for appraisal in two or thee places. Investing in diamonds is a kind of growing my wealth with pleasure, it became my hobby. Now I’m not only a buyer I’m also a seller. Some of my diamonds I keep secretly in my property, some I keep in a bank box. Diamond investments add quickly to my wealth, now I own a home without a home morgage, I could afford it. Let note, before I stick with diamond investing, for a home, morgage was the option only.
