Buying a 1 Carat Diamond Ring

1 carat diamond ringSelecting any piece of fine jewelry isn’t something to do on a whim, especially if it includes a sizeable gemstone. Here’s what to look for when buying a 1 carat diamond ring.

When you’re in the market for a 1 carat diamond ring, it’s essential to understand the quality of the diamond you’re considering. The 4 Cs of diamonds can provide valuable information to help you make an informed decision:

Be sure you’re aware of a retailer’s customer service policies before you buy, including their return policy and any warranties they offer. Look for a jeweler that’s willing to stand behind what they sell by the service they offer. For example, Apples of Gold offers a 45-day return policy and a 90-day warranty on all jewelry, as well as a 365-day warranty on all wedding bands.

Price is also an important factor when buying a 1 carat diamond ring. While any diamond ring of quality will cost more than mere pennies, do your homework to make sure that you’re getting a good value. Apples of Gold is committed to value pricing and by eliminating the middle man, they’re able to set their prices an average of 40 percent lower than average retail prices.
