Need advice on a tennis braclet

Recommended Posts

Guest Guest

With regards to the 4 C's, what should I look for when buying a tennis braclet?

 

I saw a jeweler's marqee say a 5 ct, tennis braclet for $1000. Too good to be true or just bad diamonds?

The reason you can pay $1000 for a "5 ct tennis bracelet" is because 5 ct's represents the total weight of all the diamonds in the bracelet. High carat diamonds are very rare (particularly a 5-carat stone!), and their price per carat is significantly higher than smaller stones. To assess the value of the bracelet, look at each diamond *individually* and add the prices together, then of course add the value of the bracelet itself.

 

Good luck,
