How to choose a Diamond

mcc —  September 11, 2013

Jewellery Latest love diamond jewellery and it is important to know how your diamond is graded and categorised before it makes its way into your jewellery box. When buying a diamond, Jewellery Lastest wants you to be well informed to make sure you get the best product for your money. The Diamond Buying Guide provides some useful information;

Learning about diamonds means learning about the “four Cs” of diamonds which are considered the most important grades and categories:

  • Cut
  • Clarity
  • Colour
  • Carat weight

Cut is probably the most important, and most challenging, of the four Cs to understand. The brilliance of a diamond depends heavily on its cut.

The shape of a diamond is totally different to its cut – the shape is described as round, pear etc. the cut refers to a diamonds reflective qualities – it is what makes it sparkle. When a diamond is well cut, it will be well proportioned and light will enter the diamond and reflect back off all the cut planes to make it flash and sparkle. This is called ‘ideal’. Other cuts may be too shallow or too deep. There are different grades of cut;

diagram from

  • Ideal
  • Premium
  • Very Good
  • Good
  • Fair & Poor.

Ideal gives the best cut, proportions and dazzling effect while good, fair & poor have less light reflected meaning they are more inexpensive and cost saving.

Jewellers use this criteria in order to make sure you get the best diamond for your budget. Jewellery Latest recommends going to a professional jeweller who can use their expertise to grade you the perfect diamond.

Robert Adair Jewellers are happy to help you pick out a diamond that has an outstanding cut. Have confidence from the years of experience and expertise Robert Adair Jewellers have with Diamond rings and Jewellery.

Choosing a diamond – Robert Adair

Wedding Ring – Ballymena

mcc —  June 14, 2013

Robert Adair Jewellers in Ballymena offer many beautiful wedding rings. Your wedding ring is something to wear and treasure for the rest of your life and Robert Adair Jewellers are happy to ensure that you make the perfect choice.

The choice of metal for the bride’s wedding band is usually dictated by her engagement ring. The groom’s ring will often follow suit. Popular choices include:

  • BN_Group 8A yellow gold wedding ring is the traditional choice. 24ct is the purest form of gold but also the softest variety so is not generally recommended for wedding bands.  Our most popular choice for a gold band is18ct which gives a nice compromise between purity and durability.
  • White gold will complement any silver or platinum jewellery you may have already, and is currently a very popular choice. Most of our white gold bands have a high palladium content which means that even after substantial wear and tear the ring will still maintain its nice bright and white colour.
  • A platinum wedding ring is another popular choice.  A naturally white metal platinum is extremely durable and is the ideal metal to securely hold diamonds and precious gemstones.


Everybody’s lifestyle is different and its important to think about an average week and the wear and tear that the wedding ring will suffer. It’s worth remembering that smaller, thinner wedding bands are more susceptible to damage whilst larger, sturdier ones will withstand a lot of what life can throw at them. Also rings with fancy engraving and satin finishes etc will suffer more than a plain polished band which can be easily re-polished and refurbished as necessary. We recommend:

  • BN_Group 12If you are a very active person who intends to always wear their wedding ring, then we suggest a slightly heavier band with a rounded profile both inside and out.
  • Mens wedding rings are typically between 5mm and 8mm wide, with 6mm and 7mm band widths proving the most popular.  A common misconception is that a larger hand requires a broader wedding ring. Sometimes a broader ring can emphasises the “largness” of a hand, drawing attention to it, while a narrower width say 5-6mm looks far better.
  • Give yourself plenty of time to choose your rings. Rings can be ordered and in stock within two weeks it is obviously much better not to be rushed and to take the necessary time to pick a lovely ring that you are going to cherish and wear every day for many years to come.  We find that about two to three months prior to the big day is about right for choosing the rings.
