Visit the Diamond Store for This Seasons Gifts

Aug 17, 2007
It is May and this is the time of year when gift giving can become very expensive. We start off having to dole out for Mom, and this is a gift that no one on the planet can escape from. Enter June and the wedding, bridal, and anniversary season. Depending on how social you are, this can last anywhere from a few weeks to several months. In the Italian culture it is not uncommon to have a wedding to go to every weekend for the entire summer.

Gift giving nowadays is getting much more complicated with the increase in technology available to us. It seems that everyone already HAS everything and finding that perfect gift is next to impossible. When it comes to jewelry however, the spring and summer months seem to symbolize the diamond and endless possibilities of gift ideas. The diamond is not just for the newly affianced anymore; it truly is a gift for everyone. The greatest advantage of giving a diamond is that it is a timeless gift, it will never go out of style and regardless of what you spend on it, it will only appreciate in value.

If you decide that diamonds are going to be the gifts you give this year, do not waste time at a commercial jeweler. Find an established diamond store in your area that specializes only in diamonds. The reason is you are going to find better quality diamonds, and a more unique selection. With the commercial retailers, all of their jewelry is mass produced, and that is reflected in their pricing. If you are looking for gifts as unique as the people you are giving them to, specialized diamond stores will be able to meet all of your needs.

The three C's for giving diamonds as gifts are: cut, color, and clarity. Your diamond store will be able to help you with these. Cut is noted as the shape of the diamond and the terms will be princess, emerald, round, and so on. Color is the color of the diamond and they are rated from the letters D-X. The lower the letter in the alphabet, the better the color. So, the X range of diamonds is going to look on the yellow side. D is the whitest clearest color available, and consequently more expensive. Clarity is the quality of the diamond and its state of perfection. They are rated from flawless, to VVS1 and VVS2, VS1and VS2, and S12 SI2 and SI3, and I1 I2 and I3. A flawless diamond is just that, and the closer you get to the I grouping the more imperfections in your diamond. All of the choices you make for the big 3 C's will depend largely on your budget.

Your diamond stores are going to be able to help you find the perfect gifts when it comes to your budget. Sometimes it is better to go for quality than size. Try getting a smaller diamond now, and you will have nicer color and clarity. Try to avoid a big diamond that is going to be full of inclusions and tinged with color. A woman that knows her diamonds will appreciate gifts in small packages if they are high quality.
