Buying diamonds online is far better. Specifically, buying a diamond online is cheaper. Online you can get the same diamond with up to 30% less than the price you would have paid in the stores.

2. Know Your Budget:
Your budget will have the most impact on the size, clarity, and color of the diamond you get. The shape of the diamond directly influences the price. Round diamonds which are the most popular diamond shape costs higher than fancy-shaped diamonds. 

3. Choose A Shape:
Diamonds can be cut in any shape or size. There are a lot of diamond shapes you can find but the most popular ones are Round, Princess, Cushion, Oval, Emerald, Pear, Marquise, Asscher, Radiant, and Heart-shaped. Round shaped diamonds are the most popular and costly than other shaped diamonds.

4. Color Grade:
Most of the color diamonds range from M to D. M is the most lower color grade while D is the highest color grade. M, L, K comes under the faint tint category. J, I, H, G are near colorless diamonds, and F, E, D are colorless and highest in color grade. Near colorless diamonds are the best value in diamonds.

5. Clarity Rate:
You should know that some of the diamond flaws are invisible to the naked eye while some flaws are visible. In the clarity grading F- IF are flawless diamonds, VVS1-VVS2 are very very slightly included, VS1-VS2 are very slightly included, SI1- SI2  comes with slight inclusions, and I1- I2 have more inclusions. 

6. Carat Weight:
A carat refers to the measuring unit used to describe the diamond weight. Distributing your budget against the carat weight and other C’s is important because a large diamond with poor color and clarity rate will not look good. The higher the carat weight higher will be the price.

7. The Most Important Factor Is Cut:
The cut is the dimensions and angles of a diamond. It assesses how well proportioned a diamond is and how well it interacts with light. The three factors that affect the cut grade quality are proportions, symmetry, and polish. Proportions are the ratios and sizes of the diamond’s depth, width, and table. If the diamond’s proportion is poor, it will look dull. Symmetry is the precision of the shape and facet of the finished diamond. Polish means the overall degree of smoothness of each facet of a diamond and how it affects the shine and glow.

8. Never Purchase Diamonds Without Certificates:
You should always ask for certificates or reports from the seller before buying any kind of diamond. These certificates are the ultimate proof of the quality of diamonds you purchase.
