Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 03, 2015
According to an article published June 24th on Bloomberg Business, Japanese diamond jewelry owners are selling their diamond jewelry at a record pace to countries with growing diamond markets such as China and India. The Japanese Ministry of Finance reports that the past year has seen a 77 percent increase in used diamond exports. According the Los Angeles based retailer Diamond Forever Jewelry, the increase in used diamonds may be good for customers in these new markets looking for a cheap find, but serves as a further encouragement for U.S. shoppers looking for diamond engagement rings to shop where diamonds can be independently certified of the quality. Diamond Forever Jewelry says that they use Gemological Institute of America (GIA) certification in order to assure their buyers of the quality and individual specifications of each diamonds without any guesswork. According to Diamond Forever Jewelry, here are some of the advantages of using GIA certification:
- Polish – Since the polish is perhaps the quality that can be most easily diminished by age and wear, a GIA report assuring an excellent polish and shine can be extremely important to any shoppers worried about coming across a used diamond, says Diamond Forever Jewelry.
- Symmetry – A symmetrical cut is also important, and indicative that the diamond was cut by a skilled diamond-cutter or professional manufacturer. These slight variations in symmetry can be very difficult for the average shopper to pick up on, says Diamond Forever Jewelry, so a professional, independent review of the symmetry of each diamond is critical in making sure that shoppers are paying a fair price.
- Cut Grade – In addition to the symmetry, the GIA reviewers will also give a grade to the overall cut of the diamond. Diamonds come in a variety of different shapes and cuts, says Diamond Forever Jewelry, and the style and consistency of the cut can affect the stone’s value. Although one diamond may, to the shopper looking at diamond wedding rings, appear equally beautiful as another, the objective market value may be higher or lower, and the price should reflect this.
Both new and used diamonds can be submitted to the Gemological Institute of America for a grade, so shoppers of all types an still get an independent quality assurance from their expert certifiers.
