It's important and advisable to learn about diamonds before you purchase one. Diamonds are complex, with many attributes that affect their overall beauty and quality. At James Allen’s Education Center, you go beyond the “Four C’s” (Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat Weight) and learn about everything that gives a diamond both its beauty and its value.
Fancy Color Diamonds
Fancy color diamonds are extremely rare stones. Approximately one out of every 10,000 naturally produced diamonds are considered “fancy colored.” The term “fancy” was coined by the Gemological Institute of America to distinguish between natural-color polished diamonds which display color and white diamonds.
Natural gemstones, like diamonds, have different grades of quality, and it is important to educate yourself about the qualities that are assessed to determine the overall value of your chosen stone.
Diamond in the Rough
Diamond in the Rough is the most renowned brand for natural, rough diamond jewelry. A beautifully inspired alternative to a polished center stone, a Diamond in the Rough transforms a traditional engagement ring into a one-of-a-kind expression of uniqueness.
When designing the engagement ring of your dreams, there is so much to consider. Presented with almost limitless combinations of settings and diamonds, it is easy to get flustered. By doing the proper research and asking the right questions, you will be able to design the perfect diamond engagement ring with little effort.
These symbols of lifelong commitment not only reflect the two of you as a couple, but each of you individually as well. While a wedding ring should, in some way, be similar to the engagement ring it sits next to, it need not also be similar to the man's wedding band. Once you have chosen an engagement ring, finding the right wedding ring is easy.
Fine Jewelry is a welcome addition to any woman's collection. Pearls, gemstones, diamond studs and pendants compliment any occasion and add a touch of class. Although personal taste and style dictates what type of fine jewelry fits what type of situation, there are certain things you should consider.
