Diamond/Jewelry Questions:

What’s the most important thing to remember when buying a diamond?

How a diamond is cut – so that all of its facets work in harmony to spark the greatest brilliance – is perhaps the most important thing to consider in the gem itself. Among the 4C’s of diamond value, including clarity, color and carat weight, cut is the most critical. Cut is what unleashes a diamond’s singular beauty.

Do you sell any conflict diamonds?

At HRJewelShop.com we source our diamonds from the world’s best, most respected and largest diamond suppliers. We make every effort, as do our suppliers to ensure that we do not knowingly purchase or sell any conflict diamonds. We buy only from suppliers who warrant that their diamonds are from sources free from conflict. We are committed to the highest standards on behalf of our customers.

What’s a karat? What’s the difference between karat and carat?

Simply put, a karat is the unit of measurement used to indicate the purity of gold (since gold is in fact a mixture of gold and other metals). Pure gold is 24-karat (24K), 18-karat gold is 75% pure, and so on. Carat is a term used to measure the weight of a diamond, e.g. 1-carat, 2-carat, and so on. One carat is equal to 0.2 grams.

What are the 4Cs?

Diamonds are graded and priced according to what is universally referred to as the ’4Cs’. They are Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat weight. Each is a description of the various characteristics of a diamond. For example, Cut refers to the shape of the diamond, which affects its fire and brilliance. Color refers to the amount of color in the diamond (the less color a diamond has, the more valuable it is, all other factors being equal). Clarity describes the number of natural blemishes and inclusions a diamond has, and Carat Weight is simply a measurement of the diamond’s weight (not its size).

Why is 18K gold more valuable than 14K?

18Karat gold is more pure, meaning it contains a higher percentage of gold. Pure gold is 24-Karat (24K), 18-Karat gold is 75% pure, and so on.

What do the markings on the back of my jewelry mean?

If your jewelry has a number and a ‘K’, this denotes its Karat amount, or the purity of the gold in the piece (gold is actually a mixture of gold and other metals). Pure gold is 24-karat (24K), 18-karat gold is 75% pure, and so on.

Why do similar pieces of jewelry have such different prices?

There are many factors that can affect the value of gold jewelry. Since gold is sold by weight, heavier pieces can be more costly than lighter ones. Designer jewelry also generally costs more, especially if it is a one-of-a-kind piece. Special finishes, such as matte or sandblasted, may also affect the cost of the piece.

What’s the best way to care for and clean a diamond?

Here are some general guidelines for caring for and cleaning your diamonds:

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.

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.

What’s the best way to care for and clean gold jewelry?

Your jewelry can be kept looking new if you follow a few simple guidelines: Avoid contact with bleach, soap, perfume, cosmetics, hairsprays, etc. Also, take your jewelry off at night and store it in a jewelry box with compartments that keep pieces from rubbing against each other.

You can clean your gold jewelry in a bowl of warm, sudsy water with a bit of any mild liquid detergent. Brush the jewelry with a soft brush until you have created a lather around it. With the jewelry on a plastic or metal strainer, rinse off with warm water (be sure not to clean your jewelry over the drain!) Pat your jewelry dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
