In Northern Ireland, Diamonds are one of the most precious gifts that can be given. But how can you be sure that the diamond you are buying is the best that you can get for your money. There are lots of different factors which will make your decision.
1/ Budget – Find a jeweller who offers a wide range of diamonds to chose from. Work out how much you can afford and push them to show you the best quality diamond for that price.
2/ Shape – the shape of a diamond is different from the cut. The cut is a technical term which refers to the diamond’s proportions, symmetry and polish. A good jeweller will help you with the cut of your diamond, but you get to pick the shape which you prefer.

3/ Purpose. You should consider what how your diamond is going to be worn.

Diamond can be set into rings, bracelets, and necklaces.
Diamonds are a great investment and are loved worldwide. The allure of a diamond comes from the clarity and sparkle. Working with a reputable Jeweller will help you to pick the best diamond for your money.
