Purchasing Colored Diamonds

Purchasing Colored Diamonds | Atsuna Matsui

When it comes to purchasing colored diamonds, there is a wide variety of choice available. If you are not aware of all of the different colors that you can find these precious stones in, take a look at the pinterest.com website, and you will see a wide selection of what is available. When you are purchasing colored diamonds for an engagement ring or any other type of jewelry, there are considerations that you will need to take into account to get the biggest bang for your bucks.

Find A Reputable Dealer

Before you commit to purchasing from any dealers or jewelry companies, you will first want to check the company out first, and you can do this easily using the internet. You will want to make sure that the business that you choose to purchase from has qualified gemmologists and diamond graders. You will want a company that is transparent and are quite willing to answer any questions that you may have. You can go to www.aedesignjewellery.com.au to see one such company that put their clients first and are happy to assist you with any queries that you may have.   

Choose A Cheaper Intensity

It is important to keep in mind that the precious metal in the jewelry will affect the intensity of the colored gems. Because of this, you can save yourself some money by purchasing stones of a lower intensity, and then achieve a similar effect when they are placed in the item of jewelry.

The more vibrant and intense the color is, the more it will cost, and you can save some money on purchasing lower intensity stones, and still achieve a special look and style. If you save yourself enough money, you may even be able to splash out and go for a more elaborate design!

Buying Carats

Another way that you can potentially save a substantial amount of money when purchasing precious colored stones is to choose the carat carefully before buying. You will find that the cost of a one karat stone will be significantly more than that of stones that have a weight of 0.90 karats. Depending on the cut of the stone, only a trained eye might know the difference. Choosing a lower karat weight does not necessarily mean that you are getting a smaller stone, and if you are in any doubt at all have a chat with your jeweler and ask him to explain about the karat weight and size of the stone in more detail.

Never Rush In

Before you make your purchase, make sure that you take some time to step back and reflect before committing to buy colored diamonds or any other precious stones. If a salesman is trying to pressure you into the purchase, walk away and find another dealer that puts their customers first. Explain what it is that you are looking for and what your budget is, and a reputable jeweler will tell you exactly what your options are. When you feel ready and are happy with what you have been offered, you can commit to the purchase and start creating a beautiful and unique piece of jewelry for that special someone in your life.

It’ll be a long time before I make any diamond purchases! lol. but thanks for sharing these awesome tips!


Great post! I’ve only ever bought white diamonds but I’ll keep your tips in mind while purchasing a coloured piece!

Great post. I personally haven’t bought a diamond for myself, but my engagement ring is truly special and was really carefully selected by my husband. I love pinterest for inspiration, I used to wear cocktail rings a lot, and would definitely use it to help learn how to find the gemstone i want next.


Thanks for sharing!
