Diamonds are a difficult item to shop for because you, like most people, do not know exactly what to look at when inspecting a diamond.
Diamond jewelry will have three aspects to its value. The first is the worth of the diamond itself. The main points that make a diamond valuable mainly focus on the color or clearness as well as the cut or proportions. These two make up most of the diamonds worth and after you factor in the weight (carat), you will understand how much the diamond is worth. There is another characteristic of a diamond, and that is the clarity of a diamond. This refers to the amount of inclusions in a diamond.
Once you view the diamonds worth, you will have most of the cost of the jewelry understood. The remaining two aspects to the value of diamond jewelry are the metal the jewelry is made from and the crafting of the jewelry itself. Gold is the most common metal used in jewelry and its values depends on the purity of the metal used and the amount used or weight of the metal. The purity is stated in Karats as in 10K, 14K, and 18K with 18K being the most pure.
The craftsmanship value is the most difficult to ascertain. It is dependant on the design of the jewelry and whether that design cost is spread over many items mass-produced or over just a few or the single item of jewelry that is hand-crafted. The manufacturing process also contributes to the craftsmanship value. Was it cast, die struck, or hand made; how much time and expertise was given to setting the diamonds and finishing the jewelry are all issues that influence the value.
