How to choose a jewel

I wish to offer a jewel but I have no idea on how to make this choice

The first question to ask is : who is the person you want to offer this jewel ? Is it just a friend, your spouse, a love passing etc…?

You should then observe her complexion (matte colored or white), the color of her eyes, her style (young style 30 years or older), clothing (classic, fashion or casual) her hair (hair color, long or short hair), the jewelry she wears (classic, modern or stylized, fancy jewelry or more traditional jewels), all indications that will be very useful to guide your decision. At this point you begin to have a vague idea of what might make her happy.

Consider also the conformation of the person. If she has a round face rather choose a long form of jewelry: shaped diamond drop earrings, a lying necklace or a diamond pendant. If she has a long neck opt for a ringer diamond necklace which will enhance her beauty.

For a diamond ring long fingers support all forms of rings (elongated, broad, with kitten diamond solitaire height, you and me or trilogies etc…). For short fingers, you should avoid rings with high volume.

For jewelry with precious stones (diamonds, rubies, sapphires and emeralds) consider that the stone must be in harmony with her complexion, her style of outfits, her hair, the color of her eyes … etc.

You also may decide based on the symbolism of the stone given the usual mood and personality to whom the gemstone jewel is intended. Anyone has a favorite color… Her astrological sign may also have an influence on the choice you are going to make. Now you start to get a first “feeling” of the jewel you might choose…

More generally, the diamond is the gemstone most sought after and most appreciated by women because the diamond blends with all colors, all styles, all skin tones, all conformations and carries jewelry for all occasions with required more sophisticated to the most casual.

The diamond jewelry (diamond engagement rings, diamond wedding rings, diamond earrings, diamond pendants …) is “the best friend of the woman”, is the symbol of eternity and is the gem that every woman dreams to wear one day.

After gold, the next ten years will be the years of the diamond : diamond as a safe investment.

If the last years were those of Gold, the decade to come will be the years of the Diamond.

diamond safe investment The three main production companies of rough diamond – DE BEERS (South Africa), RIO TINTO ZINC ( Canada) and ALROSA ( Russia) – agree to say that the market for rough diamond was nearly on balance in 2010 with a demand equivalent to the production of about 135 million carats.
The consulting company, Bath and Company, mentioned in their last report that the demand will grow twice as fast as the offer to reach 247 millions of carats in 2020 compared to 175 millions of carats.
The world production increase will not be enough to fill the raising appetite of China, India, the Golf and soon of Brazil for precious stones and more particularly for diamond. The prices are thus going to grow inexorably.

Sergey VYBORNOV, President of the Russian ALROSA Company, is confirming this tendency by considering the explosion of the demand in China and in India (in China because of the fast development of the middle class and the number of millionaires pulling the expansion of the new markets for luxuries). To these markets a strong demand has to be added for the USA, the Golf and, in the years to come, the one to be foreseen in the emerging countries of Latin America like Brazil.

As an example the price of rough diamonds already increased by 29% in 2011. Consequently the prices of cut diamonds is in a sharp increase as indicated by the curve below.

polished diamond price

Last minute information: DE BEERS is betting on a diamond shortage and might consequently plan to reduce their production to extend the life lasting of their diamond mines. The impact on the prices would be immediate particularly for the upper quality stones which are mostly investment diamonds.

To invest in diamond as a safe investment

  • To invest in diamond presents numerous advantages as a safe investment, for inheritance and for a donation.
  • It is the long-term investment which will become more valuable over the years: the diamond is not a commodity for speculation on a short or middle term basis but a real value which is increasing on a long term basis according to offer and demand volumes.
  • A diamond investment does not provide an instant income but can add value to the original investment amount.
  • The value of diamonds is not bound to that of the currencies: Diamonds are not used to guarantee currencies like Gold do.
  • Excellent safe investment in period of disorder, diamond is universally accepted as a bargaining chip and as a hedge against inflation.
  • Diamond is a discreet and easily transportable investment. The value compared to the weight is very high since one carat of diamond corresponds to 0.20 gram. The value of a diamond can represent one or several golden bars.
  • The investment in diamond does not require any special management. Placed in a safe for security reasons diamonds are durable, unchanging and available at any time.

What is the composition of diamond?

What connection is there between a lump of coal and this sumptuous stone that adorns most engagement rings? The composition of diamond

Carbon is the principal chemical element that composes the diamond. In fact, graphite or charcoal, under enormous temperature and pressure, saw its carbon atoms to draw nearer and especially to organize. Connections have been established between atoms creating very strong links between them.

While the structure of graphite is made of sheets (which tend to slide over each other), the structure or diamond is made of atoms which connections between them are directed in three directions.

structure-diamant-graphite

This difference in the layout of the same atoms explains the differences in properties:

  • – Conduction of current: the graphite is conductive (current flowing between the layers), diamond is an insulator
  • – Heat conduction: the diamond is an excellent conductor of heat, the graphite is moderately
  • – Transparency: as everyone has noticed, graphite is opaque, diamond is transparent.
  • – Hardness: that of diamond is 10 on the Mohs scale (diamond can only be cut by another diamond) that of graphite is 2 on the same scale.

At the compression and processing of graphite over time, impurities may have been trapped in its structure.

Mechanical impurities that may be in the rough diamond, will hinder the path of light rays in the stone and reduce its brilliance. The cutter does everything possible to eliminate most mechanical impurities during the cut.

Chemical impurities, present in the form of some foreign atoms that are found trapped in the structure are themselves popular because they are the ones that give color so rare diamonds: the structure are themselves popular because they are the ones that give color so rare diamonds: Yellow for nitrogen atoms, blue for boron atoms or for titanium atoms.

The price of “the” carat or the price of carat ?

The global reference to which refer the diamond industry around the world to fix the price of carat is the “Rapaport Diamond Report” that reflects the state of the global market.
It contains the diamond carat reference price, classified into 18 tables. Each table corresponds to a weight range of the stone you want to know the price.

Thus, in September, the benchmark price of a diamond weighing between 0.50 and 0.69 carat, clarity G – VS1 is $ Y per carat. If the stone weighs 0.62 carat, the price will be $ 0.62 x Y.

For a stone of 1.20 carat G – VS1, it will search the reference value in Table 1.00 to 1.49 carat. The price is $ X per carat.
But, for the same quality G – VS1, X is two times higher than Y !!!
Because the price per carat of a diamond weighing 1.00 carats to 1.49 is more than 2 times higher than the price per carat of a diamond weighing from 0.50 to 0.69 carat.

This means that in this example, you can have 4 diamonds of 0.50 carat for the price of a 1 carat diamond !!!

Choosing a diamond

Buying a diamond is a major investment and should take all precautions not to make any mistake.

The first step (essential) is to set the budget you want to spend.

Then select the shape of the diamond knowing that round (brilliant cut with 57 facts ) being the most sought after, it is about 20% more expensive than the so-called fancy shapes (princess, pear, emerald, etc …). This is also the cut that gives maximum brilliance to the diamond.

You will then decide if weight is favored (ie size), the color and / or purity.

In the case of a diamond to be set on a mount, commonly used grades are H / SI1 – G / VS1 or VS2 or F / VVS1 VVS2 for high level jewelry.

The colors D and E are often reserved for investment diamonds.

It is important to choose a zero fluorescence to prevent your ring does not surprise you in a room containing a UV lamp.
But do not forget that 20-40% of the price of your diamond depends on the quality of how it was cut (symmetry, proportions, finish). From this quality depends largely radiance and beauty of your stone.

To give the best to its customers, Private Diamond Club selects in the cutting shops of Antwerp, whose reputation is well established, diamonds whose criteria of symmetry, proportions and finishes are excellent or very good.
In all cases, it is appropriate for stones greater than 0.50 carat weight, to obtain the gemological certificate issued by one of three internationally renowned laboratories (HRD, GIA or IGI).
