Wholesale Jewellery – Diamonds
At some time during your new career, there will be a call for you to make a piece of jewellery that will include a diamond. And if you think that buying a diamond is just the same process as buying any other bauble, then you have another think coming because that is entirely the wrong attitude towards the most precious jewel of all and that is our Diamond.
Far more thought and time needs to go into the purchase of a Diamond because no matter what you think, Diamonds are certainly forever. They are highly prized and even though they are being replaced by synthetic diamonds more often than not nowadays, the genuine article will never be outlived by any other piece of jewellery I can assure you.
Wouldn’t it be nice if all of the jewellery pieces that bear your brand name could come into the Diamond forever lasting category? Well they can, if you take particular care in your designs and when putting them together. Why shouldn’t your brand name be known forever if you have put your heart and soul into something that could very well last beyond your lifetime.
The beauty of a Diamond is not matched anywhere in the range of gems that are known to mankind. Therefore because of its importance there are four very important items to consider when purchasing a Diamond for your collection.
- · Cut
- · Clarity
- · Color
- · Carat weight
It is very necessary when you have an order for a piece that must include a Diamond that beauty is at the foremost of your mind in the design you are considering. The stone should be the centerpiece of the finished item, but not in an overpowering manner, being set to be in harmony with what you have in the entire setting.
Now when I talk about the cut of a diamond – I am not referring to the shape at all. What the Cut means is the quality of the cut, the style or design guide used in reference to its symmetry, the proportioning of it in all facets and the actual polish of the Diamond. This all affects the brilliance of the stone. The shape is actually only an afterthought in the entire process.
If you don’t know much about Diamonds, then they are a natural stone found deep in the earth and have been formed as a result of a carbon that has undergone huge pressure and incredible heat in its natural state hidden in the depths of the earth in various locations throughout our world. Through these natural processes that take many, many years to complete, a diamond will develop internal physiognomies called inclusions and external physiognomies known as blemishes. When someone is called upon to evaluate the clarity of a diamond, what is considered in this process is the number, the size, the relief, the nature and the position of these physiognomies, and what effect they have on the overall brilliance of the stone. There has never been an entirely pure diamond, however, the value of one is determined on how close to purity it can be assessed. Once a flawless diamond is found – then the value is astronomical.
A very pure Diamond will be completely transparent, however, I doubt that you would be considering one of those for your jewellery manufacturing business. Most white diamonds could have a yellowish hue and are affordable for what you are doing, whereas the pink or blue diamonds carry far more value. A red diamond would be the ultimate but they are very, very rare. Be wary if someone tries to sell you a ‘blue white’ diamond as these are the most inferior of the range and are to be avoided as they will not enhance your business in any way.
A carat is equal to 0.2 grams which would be an equivalent weight to a paperclip. Your customer will be most interested in this aspect of their Diamond and they always come with a certificate which you need to get from the company from which you are purchasing your Diamond, so that you can hand it on to your customer who will be expecting it. If the company with whom you are dealing does not offer that certificate then walk away from them as their product is not a genuine article.
Now that you have learned a bit more about Diamonds which you will find in more depth in my book on actual diamonds themselves, it will be obvious to you that Diamonds are not only precious because of their value, size and appearance, the very name also holds special significance in someone’s heart.
Their forever significance is what makes them special. They are most the most resilient and indestructible stone ever to exist on or under the earth.
