DIAMOND

What features should one check before buying a diamond?

The features that you need to check while purchasing a Diamond are its four C’s and Certification.

Is online purchase of diamonds safe?

Nowadays, every commodity ranging from safety pins to ships is being bought and sold online. It is absolutely safe to buy diamonds online provided you buy only certified diamonds sold by reputed jewellers.

What are the 4C’s of a diamond?

The four Cs of a diamond are its Cut, Clarity, Color and Carat.

How is a diamond weighed?

A diamond is weighed in Carats. One carat is equal to 0.20 grams or 1/5 grams. 1 carat is further divided into 100 points, so if a diamond’s weight is 1.03 carats, then it will be referred to as weighing 1 carat and 3 points. Some diamonds may have the same carat value but may be totally different in shape look or size; mostly because of its cut, clarity and color factors.

What is the ‘Cut’ of a diamond?

The cut of a diamond refers to the proportions of its facets with respect to its size. A diamond’s brilliance or shine depends a lot upon its cut, which makes this one of the major determining points of a diamond’s value. Thus, the cut is a major factor that determines a diamond’s beauty, and thus, its value. A well cut diamond is one that disperses light perfectly and shines brilliantly.

Diamonds can be cut in 3 ways:

i) Shallow Cut: A shallow cut diamond is one where light enters the diamond’s pavilion facets at a low angle and then passes through the facet instead of reflecting back. Because light leaks through the bottom of the diamond in this case, the optimal beauty of the diamond is not realized.

ii) Ideal Cut: An ideally cut diamond is one where the light entering the facets of the diamond is properly dispersed around the diamond’s interiors and then optimally reflected back in order to give the stone a perfectly brilliant shine.

iii) Deep Cut: A deep cut diamond is one where the light entering the diamond does not get dispersed inside the stone optimally and instead of reflecting off the interior facets, exits from the sides. This makes the diamond shine less brightly.

Should diamonds with flaws be avoided?

The diamond is a creation of nature, and with each piece being unique and different from the other, a diamond without flaws is extremely rare and costly. Therefore, when you buy a diamond, you can easily go for one that has some minor flaws. In most cases, diamonds sold by reputed jewellers like Papilior have such minor flaws that they are not even visible to the naked eye.

Which type of flaw should be avoided in diamonds?

the only flaws that need to be avoided in jewellery diamonds are the ones that are visible to the naked eye. In the case of white diamonds, these would be diamonds graded N-Z in terms of Color. In terms of Clarity, one should avoid diamonds with I1/I2/I3, Eye Visible Inclusions.

What is a fancy colour diamond?

Diamonds colours coded Z+ are considered fancy coloured diamonds. These diamonds are available in a variety of colours like pink, yellow and blue etcetera.

Are fancy diamonds different from gemstones?

Yes. Fancy coloured diamonds are absolutely different from gemstones. Even though some gemstones may look very similar to diamonds, the chemical composition of gemstones and diamonds will always be different, and real diamonds, even when coloured, are only made out of the purest and hardest carbon.

What are synthetic diamonds?

Diamonds created under artificial heat and pressure in a laboratory, as opposed to ones created by Mother Nature over a period of millions of years are known as synthetic diamonds. While synthetic diamonds look and are chemically the same as real diamonds, they cost less because they are neither rare nor unique. Not to forget, they are also not the ‘real thing’.

What are conflict diamonds or blood diamonds?

Conflict diamonds, also called blood diamonds are illegally traded in order to fund insurgency, terrorism or the activities of warlords and mafias, especially in the war-torn countries of Africa or in South America. At Papilior, we sell only conflict-free diamonds.

How should one buy a diamond from a website?

The best way of buying a diamond from an online portal is ensuring that the diamond comes with third-party certification. This way, you are not only sure about the 4 Cs of the diamond that you are buying, but you can also be assured that the diamond you will get is exactly the one that you will be paying for.

What is certification of diamond?

Diamond certification entails an evaluation of a diamond by expert professionals who judge, grade and measure it using a number of tools and techniques. Thus, a certificate is like a blueprint of the diamond that gives exact details about its 4Cs and other unique aspects particular to that particular diamond. Buying a certified diamond is of paramount importance not only because the certificate is proof that you have a genuine diamond, but also because diamonds without certificates cannot be easily resold.

What is the Difference between IGI, GIA and AGSL certification?

The IGI, GIA and AGSL are all world-renowned and reputed diamond certifying agencies. In order to know more about how they are different, please go through our information on the Certification

Why should I care about Diamond Certification?

Diamonds are one of the costliest things in the world known to man. Needless to say, if you are buying a diamond, it is prudent to check if the diamond you are getting is what you were promised by your jeweller. Buying a certified diamond is of paramount importance not only because the certificate is proof that you have a genuine diamond, but also because diamonds without certificates cannot be easily resold.

What if I lost my diamond’s certificate?

If you lose your diamond’s certificate, then you can send it back to a third party laboratory, which can recertify it. In many cases, you can locate your diamond’s certificate online on the certifier’s website in case you have retained the diamond’s certification number and the name of the agency that certified it.
