If you are shopping for that perfect diamond jewellery piece for yourself or a loved one, you may consider buying a loose diamond and having the jewellery piece designed around the diamond. The Smales team can guide you through the process.
Why choose a loose diamond?
There are many benefits to buying a loose diamond. Buying a loose diamond allows you to take a good look at the stone and you can see the full characteristics before making your choice. You can see the colour, cut and clarity better when looking at an unset diamond.
You are not limited to an already set stone and you can choose the specifications you want. Loose diamonds are available in different carat weights and qualities to suit your preference.
You don’t have to compromise on your choices. You can select the best quality diamond to suit your budget and choose your own setting to suit your style.
If you are choosing a diamond as an investment, you probably want a loose diamond. Pink Diamonds have been consistently growing in value which makes them a good investment. Western Australia’s Rio Tinto’s Argyle mine, the source of 90% of the world’s pink diamonds, is scheduled for closure in 2021 and the value of these diamonds is anticipated to increase as the supply decreases.
At Smales Jewellers, you can choose your own loose diamond to match your needs. This can be mounted in your own designed piece for a truly customised piece of jewellery. Smales is unique with onsite jewellery workshops where our highly skilled teams of in-house jeweller’s will work closely with you to bring your vision to life.
Before buying a loose diamond, familiarise yourself with how diamonds are valued. Refer to our diamond buyers guide for a detailed overview of the 4 C’s of diamonds – cut, clarity, colour and carat. Having a good understanding of the diamond’s certification is also important to purchasing a loose diamond. The certification ensures that the diamond has been evaluated by a third-party gemological laboratory such as GIA, AGS, EGL, IGI & HRD.
