Buying a Diamond
First, educate yourself in the 4c’s of diamonds, Buying a diamond is different from a buying a car which are the same. Diamonds are like snowflakes, no two are alike. Insist on a certified diamond grading report from a major independent gemological laboratory such as GIA or EGL to safeguard your purchase. Never depend on an “Appraisal” done by the seller. That’s conflict of interest.
Where to buy:
If you go to a retail jewelry store, they will sell you what they have in stock.And at what price? One national jewelry chain averages 250% profit and That’s not unusual. That means if they pay $1,000, you pay $2,500.

Some people say “I want a flawless diamond.”
A one carat flawless pure white “D” color diamond can cost $35,000 in a jewelry store. A diamond that will look like it can be had for $5,000. It takes a microscope to see the difference. Think what you could do with $30,000 you just saved. Maybe pay for a wedding or a vacation?
Besides, how many people you know walk around with a microscope? Why buy a Flawless when you don’t have to.
