Choosing The Perfect Diamond Ring

When choosing a diamond solitaire ring, it’s vital that you do your research and understand what you’re buying into before you make your purchase. Here’s our guide on choosing the right diamond ring:

Why Choose A Pre-Owned Diamond Ring?

One of the major reasons why someone would choose to purchase a pre-owned diamond ring is that it offers better value than new. With a purchase price much lower than new items of the same specifications, their history of use offers an insight into their durability too.
Also, if you consider that new items immediately diminish in value as soon as you take it from the store – the value of older rings will remain the same. For those who intend to pass on their jewellery to loved ones, this assurance is the main factor that they look for when purchasing pre-owned diamond solitaire rings.

Additionally, with second-hand diamond rings, you can browse through a much wider range of different styles. If looked after correctly, well-made jewellery can last for a very long time and as such, a second-hand jewellery section at a jewellers could include items from numerous different decades. It is also possible that you could find a one-of-a-kind ring in a collection of pre-owned jewellery.

What Metal Should You Choose For The Diamond Solitaire Ring?

There are numerous different ring metals that you could choose from, such as white gold, yellow gold or rose gold. However, if you’re unsure what metal to choose, think about the jewellery that your recipient often wears. If they prefer colder toned jewellery, you should consider a white gold solitaire ring. However if they prefer warmer tones, consider purchasing a yellow or rose gold ring.

You can browse through a wide variety of different metals in our selection of pre-owned diamond solitaire rings. However, for those who would like to refine their search, you can limit your search to different types of metal, or if you would prefer you could refine the search to material colour such as 2 tone, white, or pure gold.

Choosing The Diamond - The 4 Cs


When purchasing any diamond solitaire ring, you must consider ‘the 4 Cs’. These are used to determine value in a brilliant cut diamond. The 4 Cs are Clarity, Carat, Colour, and Cut:
  • Clarity. A diamond’s clarity is also known as a diamond’s purity. After being examined under magnification for inclusion (both inside the diamond and on the surface diamond), it will be graded on its clarity. A diamond with the highest level of inclusions would be known as ‘I3’, however, if a diamond is graded ‘FL’, it has no visible inclusions (when viewed at 10x magnification).
  • Carat. When you measure a carat of a diamond, you measure its weight (although this isn’t the sole issue that defines its value or brilliance). One carat of a diamond weighs 200 milligrams of 1/5th of a gram.
  • Colour. The colour of a colourless diamond is ranked on a scale from D to Z. This occurs in many hues ranging from colourless to light yellow or light brown. However, it is important to remember that not all diamonds are colourless. Some diamonds can be blue, red, pink, green, brown, or numerous other colours.
  • Cut. There are many different types of diamond cuts. One example is the round cut, which has a high level of fire and brilliance. Fire refers to the sparkle you see when light is broken down by the diamond, producing a ‘rainbow’ of colours, and brilliance refers to the colourless light that reflects out from the diamond. The numerous other cuts that you could choose from include; Princess cut, Asscher cut, Cushion cut, Emerald cut, Marquise cut, and many more.
