Now that you’ve chosen whether you are going to buy online or from a local retailer, please read the appropriate last minute tips on how to close the deal:

Local Retailer of Diamonds

  • Ask the retailer to put the quality, grade and value of the stone in writing. If he won’t do it, go somewhere else or buy your diamond online from a trusted retailer.
  • Ask the retailer if you can take a closer look at the diamond under a diamond scope at 10X power, the power at which the diamond industry reviews the stones.
  • If the retailer is selling you a “SI” (slightly included) or a “VSI” (very slightly included) diamond, you should definitely not be able to see ANY inclusions or imperfections when viewed in a face-up position. If you can see some inclusions, the retailer can’t be trusted. Go somewhere else, or buy your diamond online and make sure that he sets YOUR diamond on HIS setting (which you like!)
  • ALWAYS pay with your credit card. If there’s a problem, you can easily get the charge reversed. If you paid cash, you won’t have many options in case of a problem.

Online Retailer of Diamonds

  • Deal only with large online retailers of certified diamonds.
  • Make sure they offer a 100% risk free delivery through FedEx or UPS.
  • Make sure they offer a 100% risk free 30 days returns policy.
  • Again, deal only with online retailers which offer certified diamonds by a well known grading company such as the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) or AGS.
