Diamond Buying Advice: How to Choose a Diamond Pendant

The first thing you need to do before buying a diamond pendant or any other piece of jewelry with diamonds in it is to identify the diamond specifics that the recipient will want or like. If you are shopping for yourself this is easily done by looking at your wants and making a list of the things you do or do not want in your pendant. If you are shopping for someone else and you want it to be a surprise, then do some detective work and try and peek at their current jewelry tastes to get an idea of their likes and styles. If you are able to bring the other party with you as you shop and look at diamonds, it is even better because you can both have input into the selection.

You also will need to carefully consider the size or weight of the diamond you ultimately want in the jewelry piece. Think about things such as their expectations and what they like in their regular jewelry. Someone who is not a fan of big stone jewelry may find even the most beautiful diamond ring to be too intimidating or cumbersome to wear often. If someone has their heart set on a big stone, smaller diamonds may end up being a bit of a disappointment.

The final thing you need to do is set a budget so you know how much you can spend on the purchase. Can you find something easily that fits those needs while staying within your budget? If not, then consider looking at these points to help you find a diamond that fits within your maximum budget limits:

  • Look at slightly lower clarity stones- small changes in clarity cannot be seen with the naked eye but can seriously lower the cost of the diamond pendant.
  • Consider lower color value- coloration can play a big role in the value of a diamond, and slight shifts in color are not easily seen, especially when the stone is mounted on a ring or pendant.
  • The final step is to consider a lower valued cut- the cut and design of the diamond can also really add on the cost, so look at a more simplistic cut to save some money and still get a stunning stone.

With these simple steps in mind, you can begin to search for the perfect diamond pendant or other stunning piece of jewelry for yourself or that special someone in your life.
