Finding the Right Diamond Necklace

They say 'diamonds are forever,' and the right diamond pendant can make the statement of a lifetime. Diamond necklaces are a fantastic way to celebrate milestones, special events, and loving relationships. However, when you walk into a your local Carizza jewelry retailer, you may be faced with a dazzling, even overwhelming number of pendant options. Two tones of gold? Colorful gemstone accents? Carats and clarity? If you're not sure where to begin for selecting the right diamond necklace, we have some tips for you:

The Fundamentals

The basics of selecting diamonds come down to the 'Four Cs,' although there is technically a fifth one. These are cut, color, clarity, carat, and don't forget about making sure it is certified. Diamonds can be cut in different ways to enhance their sparkle, from pear shapes to square-cut and more. The color of diamonds can vary. Diamonds aren't always clear, and some striking options include chocolate and blue tinges. What kind of clarity are you looking for? Natural stones tend to have traces of impurity in them; more traces means the stone is less clear. Carats are the weight of the diamond, although not necessarily its size. Last but not least you want to find a diamond that has been certified to be authentic by an independent gemologist.
