How to Buy Loose Diamonds

What are loose diamonds and why buy them?

Loose diamonds are simply diamonds that are not yet part of a piece of jewelry. While most

people buy ready-made diamond jewelry, many prefer to select loose diamonds specific to

their needs and preferences and then have them inserted into certain pieces of jewelry

by a professional.

The advantages of buying loose diamonds are numerous, namely the control over one's

budget.When buying a piece of jewelry, the price is for the entire piece. However, when

purchasing loose diamonds, you can set a budget for the diamond alone, and then a different

budget for the metal (gold, silver, platinum, etc.) that will be used as a setting.


This also allows you to have a fully customized piece of jewelry, from the setting used to

the shape. In addition, when buying loose diamonds, it is easier to examine for any possible

flaws, whereas a diamond that has already been set is nearly impossible to check in its entirety.

How to Prepare for Your Purchase

Here are a few things to keep in mind before starting your search:

1. What are you looking for?

Do you have something specific in mind or are you simply "browsing"? If you do have

an idea of what you're looking for, write it down in detail - the color, size, shape, etc.

2. What is your budget?

Knowing your budget will help narrow down your search and save time. Set a maximum

budget you are willing to invest in the diamond(s) you want to buy. Don't forget to take

into consideration the setting when planning your budget - you will only be buying

the diamond and not the entire jewelry piece.

3. Get acquainted with diamond-related terms

When searching for diamonds online or with diamond wholesalers, you'll see and hear

a lot of terms used in the diamond industry. For example, you will hear a lot about

"The 4 Cs", which stand for color, cut, clarity and carat weight. The color of a diamond

is rated from D, which is colorless, to Z, which is a light brown or yellow. 


Colorless diamonds are usually more valuable as they are more rare. The cut is the diamond's

shape and high quality cut will maximize the diamond's brilliance.


The 9 most common shapes are emerald, marquise, trillion, round, radiant, heart, oval, pear,

and princess. The clarity of a diamond depends on the internal and external flaws.

Last is carat weight, which refers to the metric weight unit used for weighing diamonds.

Do Your Research

Once you are ready to search for your loose diamond, start searching online for retailers

and wholesalers, and local shops in your area.


Don't commit to just once place though - get price quotes from several places before making

a final decision and make sure to see the diamond's certification to be able to truly compare

prices and diamond worth.
