Factors to Consider When Buying a Diamond Bracelet
Whether you’re shopping for yourself or for a gift, there are several factors to consider when making this important purchase.
Know Your Budget
Your budget is, of course, the most important issue. So, you want to be sure to get the most value for your hard-earned money. Several factors influence the cost of a diamond bracelet – the style and design of the bracelet, plus the size, weight, number, and quality of the diamonds. Let’s look at some of the points to consider.
Quality of the Diamonds
Do you need the highest quality diamonds for a diamond bracelet? Of course, the higher quality diamond, the better. But usually, diamonds in bracelets are relatively small, compared to solitaire diamonds in engagement rings, for example. That means that the grade of the diamond cannot be seen with the naked eye. Four factors are considered when grading and classifying the quality of diamonds: color, clarity, carats, and cut. These are known as the 4 Cs.
Color. At The Private Room, we only use diamonds graded from D/colorless to G/Near Colorless (D-E-F-G) on the GIA Grading Scale. These are the two highest color categories.
Clarity. The clarity of The Private Room diamonds includes IF/internally flawless, VVS/very very slight inclusions, VS/very slight inclusions, and SI/slight inclusions. These are the four highest categories on the GIA Grading Scale.
Carat Weight. A diamond is measured in carats (ct), which refers to the diamond’s weight, not its size. However, a larger carat weight is not always best, because carat weight is not always related to size or sparkle. Since bracelets can contain many diamonds, you will usually see the TCW (total carat weight) of the piece. And the TCW in a bracelet, of course, varies.
Cut. The cut of a diamond refers to its proportions, symmetry, and polish of the surfaces, or facets. This is what creates a diamond’s sparkle and brilliance. And usually, customers want the most sparkle that their budget allows. A beautiful, brilliant, sparkling diamond comes from how well the diamond is cut and crafted. At The Private Room, our designers and master jewelers are among the best in the industry.
Diamond Bracelet Styles
Diamond bracelets exist in a variety of styles. Depending on your personal preference, you can choose from the classic tennis bracelet to delicate, modern designs among the collections of The Private Room. Among our collections, you will find different types of chain link bracelets, tennis (line) bracelets, station bracelets, cuff bracelets, and bangles. Exceptionally crafted, and all set in 18K gold, you are sure to find your perfect piece.
The tennis, or line bracelet, is arguably the most classic and popular diamond bracelet style. Another popular style and modern trend (that is not going anywhere) is the delicate chain bracelet with diamond stations, charms, or accents.
Diamond Bracelet Settings
The setting of the diamond is the metal base that holds the stone. In diamond bracelets, some popular types of settings are prong, channel, bezel, half-bezel, and pavé settings. All of them are secure, so choose the bracelet style, design, and setting that you love, and enjoy the timeless beauty of this classic accessory!
