  • How do I know the diamond I receive is the quality I purchased?
    • At BlazeDiamond.com we know the importance of purchase of diamond jewelry is to our customers. So, in order to assure you that you’re receiving the value and product you expect, we provide both a grading report from a well-known and well-respected independent gemological laboratory such as the GIA, AGS, HRD for all diamonds of 1/3 ct or more. We also provide a professional jewelry appraisal report.  We do not sell EGL nor IGI Diamonds since they are in our eyes lower certifications. One has to compare Apple to Apples and Oranges to Oranges. In the case of comparing a GIA certified diamond with an EGL is as if I would compare a Porsche with an Subaru Outback – there is no comparison. 

If you have any further questions about the appraisal report, please call us at 1-877-77BLAZE (25293) or or send us an Online Inquiry and select Appraisal Report to receive a prompt reply from one of our trained experts.

A grading report also includes a diagram that “maps” the diamond’s inclusions. Since each diamond is unique, the diagram acts like a fingerprint to identify that particular diamond. A diamond can be compared to its certificate by examining it under a 10-power loupe.

 It is important to note that a diamond grading report from an independent laboratory is NOT an appraisal, which estimates the monetary value of a particular stone. It is simply an impartial, informed opinion made by an experienced gemologist.

  • How do I know what he/she’ll like?
    • It is great to ask a friend/mom to take your beloved window shopping & take pictures of the rings he/she liked – as long as they can keep a secret.  It also might be a good idea to look at her other jewelry to get a reading on her taste and style (modern or classic or antique, etc.). Sometimes the best is to just do the direct approach and ask your beloved – or let her/him pick three options and you do the last choice.

  • What is the best way to care for and clean a diamond?
    • Avoid wearing your diamonds while doing housework, yard work or any other kind of rough work. Even though a diamond is extremely durable, a hard blow could chip it. Also, when doing household chores, never allow your jewelry to come into contact with chlorine bleach. If you notice a loose stone setting, stones moving or any other noticeable damage to your jewelry, do not wear it until you have taken it to a professional jeweler. We recommend that you have us check the setting in your diamond ring.

The best way to clean your diamonds is in a bowl of warm, sudsy water with a bit of any mild liquid detergent. Brush the pieces with a soft brush, then transfer them to a wire or tea strainer and rinse with warm water. Pat dry with a soft lint-free cloth. Ultrasonic jewelry cleaners also work quite well. You can find complete diamond care and cleaning information in our Care of your investment  section.

  • What are the 4Cs?
    • Diamonds are graded and priced according to what is universally referred to as the “4C’s”. They are CutColorClarity and Carat Weight.
  • Which of the 4Cs is the most important?
    • All 4Cs are important in determining the value of a diamond. The thing to keep in mind is that a diamond’s quality will always be a balanceof the 4Cs. For example, you may have to choose a lower Carat weight in order to find a diamond with better Clarity. Or you may decide to trade a slightly lower Color grade in order to get a stone with a better Cut. Excluding carat weight as a factors, The highest quality attainable in a diamond is a “D” color, F (flawless) clarity stone that is Ideal Cut, meaning it gives off the maximum amount of fire and brilliance. We will help you decide what is best for you – with your budget and vision.

The best way to approach it is for you to first get a general understanding of the four grading characteristics by visiting our Learning Center, then decide for yourself where to strike a balance. Of course, there are other factors that can make the decision easier, like a recipient who likes larger or smaller stones, for example. In this case, if you’re working within a specific budget, you may decide to increase the diamond’s carat weight and go with a slightly lower color, cut or clarity.
