What are the best diamonds to buy?

Recommended Posts

Diamonds are valuable things in every person.Most people who receive diamonds as a gift or for an engagement have a shape preference. While other factors (such as price and quality) should be determined by the purchaser, the choice of shape should include input from the receiver of the diamond, if at all possible. This is especially true for fancy shape engagement diamonds.

Unless a particular preference has been expressed, consider a round diamond. Round diamonds tend to have more brilliance and scintillation than other shapes, they accommodate almost any ring setting, and never go out of fashion.

So what is best types of diamonds? What is  best quality diamonds to buy?

That depends on your purpose; assuming you are a consumer (meaning: not intending to trade on a regular basis), then buying what you like most is not a bad place to start from.

Yes, round brilliants are on average brighter and sparklier than other shapes, but people value things other than just brightness and sparkle, and I for example particularly like Asscher cut diamonds. As with many (all?) other things in life, "best" doesn't necessarily exist.

Diamonds are, at their heart, a fashion product.  Outside of a few industrial applications, they are completely unnecessary.  There's nothing wrong with that but it turns out to be an important concept for questions like what’s better than what. Better in what way?  Is round a better shape than square or heart-shaped?  It is if she likes it better but there is no function here to measure against.  If she loves one more than another, that’s what makes it better. If her taste is unusual and what she likes is less popular than something else, it's STILL better.
