How To Buy A Diamond
In buying a diamond pendant necklace, you should consider the four Cs -- clarity, cut, carat weight and color. Diamonds are categorized and graded based on these four characteristics. Sometimes people confuse the diamond "cut" and "shape". Shape means the outward appearance of the stone while cut refers to the diamond's reflective qualities. Considered as one of the most important characteristic, a cut defines the quality of the diamond as it affects the properties and values. Diamond with a perfect cut will sparkle more.
The clearer the diamond, the more brilliant and the higher price it is. Clarity is distinguished by visibility, size and number. The color of the diamond means the presence of the absence of the white color in the stone. A colorless diamond will absorb more light to pass it through hence it reflects more spark.
The carat weigh is the measurement of the diamond. The price of the diamond is greatly proportional to the size of the stone.
Practing proper care of your diamond helps it maintain its brilliance.
Remember to always remove your jewelries before going to bed. It is highly recommended not to wear your precious stoned jewelry when doing any manual work such as cleaning and gardening. This will avoid a chemical contact to the stone and potential loosening of the stone setting. Many soap chemicals cause diamonds to look dull. It is therefore necessary to take off your stoned pendants before taking shower or swimming.

The easier and safest way is to clean your pendant with a soft bristles toothbrush in running water. If your diamond jewelry only has diamonds (and not other gemstones), another simple way of cleaning your jewelry is a cold water soak made of half cold water and household ammonia. Soak the pieces for at least half an hour and dry it gently tissue paper.
It is also important to avoid your diamond pendant necklace to get contact in harsh chemicals such as perfumes and hairspray. Make sure not to put on your pendant unless your make-up is done.
