Guide To Buying Diamonds

When buying Diamonds, it's easy to feel daunted. Where do you start? How do you choose one from the other? At Marlow's, we understand, and want to help you find the perfect diamond ring for your unique tastes, your specific budget and, most importantly, to amaze the person you intend to give it to!

Depending on where you begin your search, you may find yourself meeting some pressure, whether from salespeople who want the commission or friends and family who want you to pick a certain kind of ring.

There may even be some people who try to convince you that the size of the diamond you choose is symbolic of how much you love your special someone, or that you should spend a certain amount for it to be meaningful. The important thing is to take your time and choose wisely.

Consider the size and carat you can afford. For many people, a 1.0 carat is a good size, but well-cut jewels of a smaller weight may be right for you. When choosing cut and clarity, an experienced seller will talk you through these as both can alter prices considerably. You will also need to know the size of your loved one's ring finger, though borrowing one of her rings to get it sized is usually a good idea. Of course, if this is impossible, rings can be resized.

For three generations, Marlow's Certified Diamonds have continually sourced the finest jewels from around the world, and combined unbeatable prices with exceptional service. We are passionate about helping you find the perfect diamonds for your taste and budget, no matter what they may be.
