Shopping for a diamond may seem like an intimidating process for some; after all, you do not do this every day! At Pieter Andries we understand that this is a significant purchase and believe it is important for you to be able to make an informed decision in order to get the best value possible.
Of the four C’s cut is one of the most important factors in determining a diamond’s beauty and value. Two diamonds with the exact same color, clarity and carat weight can vary in price by as much as fifty percent based on cut alone. While most independent gemological grading laboratories have established metrics for grading cut, nothing on a certificate can compare to visually examining the diamond yourself. Does it sparkle? Is it beautiful? When we purchase a diamond for our inventory visually examining the diamond is just as important as verifying the quality grading. Remember, you are wearing a diamond ring on your finger, not a certificate! Perfection in the four C’s is not necessary, it’s how much the diamond visually appeals to you that matters!
