Show someone you care by buying a diamond. Diamonds are a true show of how much you care and a great way to celebrate birthdays or anniversaries. Finding the right stone and the right setting can be difficult, so customize your diamond by buying them loose.

Diamonds are among the oldest substances known to man and also among the hardest. It is made up of carbon atoms creating a diamond lattice structure after being heated and pressurized. They typically form 75-120 miles into the Earth’s mantle. Diamond mines are located all over the world, but in about seven prime locations: Angola, Australia, Botswana, Namibia, Russia, South Africa and Zaire. Diamonds are considered very rare, but as long as there is carbon in the Earth’s mantle, there will be diamonds in the diamond mines for production.

When buying a diamond, it is important to consider every individual situation. Would your rather have loose diamonds and customize your setting or would you rather buy preset diamond jewelry? Buying a diamond loose can be smart because it allows the buyer to make sure each individual diamond is perfect without having to take into consideration the setting it is already in. It also allows for a more personal touch because the setting will be created in a unique way. However, perhaps buying a colored diamond is more attractive to you. Colored diamonds can be bought as loose diamonds as well. Diamond jewelry can last a lifetime, so it is important to find something that you, or the one you are buying for, will be happy with.

Something to be wary of when buying a diamond is its grade. The grade will affect the price in a big way, but it is very possible to find a cheaper high grade diamond. The grade is given based on the overall look and the four C’s: cut, color, clarity and carat.
