Pay attention to the cut quality when buying a diamond

A common mistake when buying a diamond is paying not enough attention to the details of the cut quality of your diamond. The ‘cut’ is more difficult to define than colour or clarity and is therefore often ignored or misrepresented. If a jeweller presents you with a limited selection of (investment) diamonds, you will probably opt for the diamond with the best cut quality. You have then chosen the best cut diamond available, but this does not necessarily mean that it is a well cut diamond. BNT Diamonds offers you a large online selection, where you can select your preferred parameters and thus make the best choice.

The hidden depth of a diamond

Under the ‘cut quality’ parameter, you also need to consider the width and depth of your investment diamond. (Too) deep cut diamonds carry a lot of their carat weight hidden in their depths, rather than in their width. This way, a diamond of 1.5 ct can appear similar in size to a 1.2 ct diamond, while the price of this deep cut diamond will not differ significantly. Of course, when the proportion of a diamond is below par (too deep or to shallow), the diamond will score low on the parameter ‘symmetry’. Buying a diamond at a local jeweller is thus not without risk. The online jeweller BNT Diamonds gives you the opportunity to compare different types of diamonds with each other, with corresponding specifications.
