TIPS ON BUYING DIAMONDS
By Laura Chow and Charles Rosario
1. 2. Go to a reputable jeweller where you can trust the information presented to you. Do not buy diamonds online. You have to go to a shop, feel the diamonds, and experience them before buying. Know that a diamond purchase is an emotional one, so don’t be impulsive. Get something that’s distinctive and will separate you from the crowd. Always look for something different, limited, and special, in terms of design and quality. For the men, know what pieces your wife or girlfriend already owns and doesn’t own yet, and get your hint from there. Understand the value behind a diamond, and go beyond the 4Cs with consistency, commitment, and confidence.
