When it comes to buying diamonds, the ignorance that people have in their minds can be shocking. Some people blindly pick up the precious stones. Occasionally, people take a look at the design and clarity. Once in a while, the discussion also revolves around the beauty of the stone. What about the value of the stone?
However, buying certified diamonds is important. Wedding rings are special and the stone that goes into decorating the stunning jewelry is not cheap. It is expensive. However, unlike the gold in your wedding ring, the stone is rarely bought with the required care. For instance, most people are not aware of the fact that while buying stones including diamonds, they are eligible to demand for a certification.
Yes! The certificate that the jeweler gives you carries all the information about the stone. First things first, the certificate carries detail about the cut and clarity of the ring. This is important because it helps in ascertaining the value of the stone. Your stone may be precious but as long as you don’t have it in writing in the form of certification, no jeweler will believe you.
The quality of the stone is mentioned in the certificate. For instance, if people are investing in an 18 carat diamond, the certificate is what justifies its quality. In the future, if there is a quarrel or a dispute regarding the value of the stone, the certificate is a valid document that helps the buyer claim the original value.
Another misconception that needs to be addressed in this category is the fact that micro pave wedding band don’t come at an extra cost. Yes! The certification is the right of the buyer and he or she does not have to pay any extra money to avail this. If you have jewelers around you asking for extra money to provide this certification, it is clear that you are being duped.
