3 Carat Diamond Stud Earrings – The Complete Buyer’s Guide
What is the first thing that you notice when you look at a diamond? Chances are, right after you take in the sparkling rays of light from a beautiful diamond of high quality, you notice how big the stone is. If you’re looking to make an impression, then choosing an unusual diamond size like a 3 carat stone may be a good idea.
Now, 3 carat diamonds are never cheap, so it’s extremely important to be an informed buyer. I’m a professional jeweller here in Australia, and I can’t tell you how many times I have seen people get ripped off by what seemed like a good deal.
Unfortunately, not all jewellery companies out there are like the one I work for, which believes in the long-term, sustainable business model of satisfying customers first instead of trying to drain every last bit of profit from them.
In order to get the best 3 carat diamond for your money, you’re going to have to consider what is most important to you in a diamond, and you’re going to have to choose an honest jeweler who will tell you the truth.
It is one hundred times more important to shop for quality when seeking a 3 carat stone than when you’re shopping for a small stone. There is just much more at stake when you’re paying, say, a few thousand dollars for a 1 carat diamond compared to a few tens of thousands for a quality 3 carat diamond.
So that you better understand what you’re getting into, I wrote up this quick guide that goes over some of the important aspects of buying a 3 carat diamond.
The Cut is Even More Important
With diamond earrings of this size, the cut of the diamond will be even more important than with smaller sized stones. The reason for this is simply that flaws are magnified the larger the stone is. It is important to consult with a good jeweler who can examine all aspects of the diamond and tell you what it’s worth. Things can get confusing when you’re dealing with a diamond of this size.
For example, just because a diamond is more clear does not mean that it will necessarily sparkle better. Ultimately, it comes down to the cut, as this will determine how the light will reflect back to the viewer. This is more pronounced with a larger stone that has larger facets.
This is where you have to weigh the importance of technical “flawlessness” and raw visual appeal. It really is a matter of where your priorities lie, but just remember that you can never fully assess the stone without a qualified jeweler to guide you.
The Colours Will Be More Obvious
Though it is indeed true that the cut is more important than the colour, you should also consider this flaw as well. Some people prefer diamonds that are more yellow than clear, but if you like a pure diamond that reflects white light, then you will need to be more picky with a 3 carat diamond.
You may be able to get away with some yellowing on a smaller sized diamond because it may not be apparent, and it still may look clear to the naked eye. This is not as true for a 3 carat diamond, so always have an honest jeweler examine the diamond before you buy.
That being said, if you don’t have the funds to buy a flawless and well-cut 3 carat diamond, then sacrifice clarity first because it’s the cut that will really make the difference in how well the diamond sparkles.
It is Critical For the Diamond to Be Certified
While you should never buy a diamond that is not GIA certified, this is especially true when you’re considering a pair of 3 carat diamond stud earrings. No matter what excuses the jeweler uses, never accept a diamond that was certified by other, lesser-respected labs. More often than not, this is a scam designed to sell you inferior diamonds for huge prices.
You may face the problem of dubious certification more often when you try to buy diamonds from overseas merchants. The truth is that you never really know what you’re getting unless you buy from a trusted Australian source. You might get lucky, sure, but why take the chance?
You already know that you’re going to have to pay a lot for a 3 carat diamond, you may as well make sure that this money is going to a reputable jeweler like our company. All our diamonds are certified and we will always explain the quality of the stone to you in detail because we have nothing to hide.
Never Go Cheap
Finally, never go cheap on a 3 carat diamond. If you are looking for a diamond this size, then value should not be the first thing on your mind. If you are looking for cheap 3 carat diamond stud earrings, then you will probably get scammed. It’s better to just go for a smaller diamond when you’re on a budget rather than trying to buy a 3 carat diamond at a bargain price.
Even when it comes to the settings, it pays a lot more in the long run to go for materials of high quality. Good-quality settings will cradle your diamond and protect it from harm, while still displaying its beautiful sparkling brilliance for the world to see.
