Unique Wedding Rings - Far from Ordinary
A wedding ring represents a lifetime commitment and unity between husband and wife. Whether you want to show the special woman in your life that she is one-of-a-kind with an exclusive diamond engagement ring that was crafted just for her, or you are simply looking as a couple for wedding rings that are particularly unique, it's always best to be an educated consumer and know what kind of quality for which you are paying. Each ring has a different grade and the best option for YOU is based solely on YOUR budget and the taste of your bride-to-be.
A Diamond Certificate is a Passport to its Authenticity
If you are including diamonds in your wedding ring selection, it is important that they come certified. A diamond certificate is much like a blueprint that lists the diamond's various qualities including its cut, clarity, colour and carat weight. Only licensed gemological labs known for their expertise in diamonds and precious gemstones are able to issue diamond certificates, hence it is important to take note of the following items when reading the certificate.
- Where the diamond certificate was issued – the most trusted and recognized unbiased graders in North America are the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and Gem Scan (GS) which have international r eputations for consistently providing precise grading services.
- Where the diamond is rated on the grade spectrum – the cut of the diamond is considered the most important factor in determining its overall appearance, since a poor cut will seem dull even if it has excellent clarity and colour. For example, cut grade is assigned by GIA using a scale that ranges between "excellent” – "poor.”
- Origin of diamond – the diamond certificate will assure you that your stone is conflict-free meaning that it hasn't been mined in an area controlled by insurgent forces whose sale is to fund military action. In fact, diamonds bought from Canadian retailers have a solid reputation for being mined in an environmentally conscious way.
Diamonds that come without a certificate are not authentic, given that they have been synthetically made and should be purchased with caution. Buying diamonds from retail chains should also be done with caution, as some use independent diamond graders to appraise stones who may give a higher grade than is warranted. The unsuspecting consumer then pays more than the diamond is worth, and will likely never know of the inflated price.
Have Confidence in a Good Jeweler
Jewelers take pride in educating their customers about all aspects of diamonds and precious stones and even encourage them to get second opinions from others in the industry. The engagement ring you choose is going to be one of the most significant purchases of your life and it is essential that you are properly informed by a reputable jeweler ahead of making this decision.
