Although maybe overdoing the stereotype, most women go a little weak at the knees over diamond jewellery. Whether it’s an engagement ring or perhaps a beautiful pair of diamond earrings to mark a special occasion, it’s hard not to be a little overwhelmed. After all these are the most precious of stones. Their cut, shine and dazzle is simply beautiful.

Spending so much on a piece of jewellery is a big decision. These aren’t everyday purchases. People save and save, so they want to get their selection absolutely right, which is why it pays to think carefully about which jeweller to turn to. A really good jewellery store will have patient and knowledgeable staff who are on hand to advise not pressure people into a sale. They should be able to explain about the different cuts and qualities so that people can make an informed decision.

The sign of a really great jeweller, a company that really knows its stuff, is the fact that they sell loose diamonds as well. Not everyone wants diamond rings or other jewellery that is “off the shelf”. Increasingly people want to design their own jewellery. A good jeweller can take these loose stones and turn them into a beautiful and unique bespoke design, exactly how the customer imagined.

When shopping for diamonds it’s important to take ethical issues into account. Some diamonds come from war torn parts of the world. Known as blood diamonds, it is illegal to trade in these gems. Reputable jewellers steer well clear of them and only source stones from regulated and reputable sources. No one wants to help fund misery and conflict. So it pays to check out the source of any stones carefully.
