FAQ's

There are so many variables that influence the price of a ring.
MAIN FACTORS:

  • The 4C’s of Diamonds- Size? Quality? Decide what is important to you and discuss with us.
  • Certification- The quality, authenticity and ‘trust’ factor of the Certification (very important)
  • Fluorescence
  • The metal you choose- Choosing between 9kt/18kt or Platinum has an effect on the price.
  • Your finger size – the bigger the finger or wider the band the more metal required to make a ring

The truth is a diamond ring can be manufactured for a variety of budgets. Depending on the colour, the clarity, cut and the size (carat) of your diamond. Read MORE ABOUT THE 4C’s  

In addition to the 4C’s, a very important and often overlooked factor is Certification. At Grace Diamonds we predominantly opt for either GIA or EGL certified diamonds.

Other often ‘hidden’ factors to take into consideration would be the Fluorescence of a stone. If you are not sure about this ask us to tell you more! This could be the difference in price you’re looking in terms of your budget,

The ring can also be made from platinum or gold (various karats ranging from 9kt to 18kt) which also affect the price.

All you have to do is decide on the amount you’re happy to spend on your dream ring and we will find you the biggest most sparkly diamond for your money.

The 4Cs of diamonds are a set of criteria used to grade diamonds, and consist of Cut, Colour, Clarity and Carat weight. Cut refers to the shape and proportions of the diamond, which can affect the diamonds brightness and sparkle. Colour grades the degree of colourlessness in a diamond and is graded on a scale from D (colourless) to Z (light yellow). Clarity grades the number and size of inclusions present in the diamond, and is graded on a scale from Flawless to Included. Finally, Carat weight is the physical measure of a diamond, and is the standard unit of measurement for diamonds.

The 4C’s Of Diamonds
Choosing A Diamond Is A Journey…
At Grace Diamonds, we source our diamonds from one of the richest diamond-mining regions in the world: South Africa. Each certified diamond is carefully selected for its brilliance and beauty. With each stone from Grace Diamonds you can be assured of the highest quality and grading according to the industry standard 4Cs.

  1. Cut
    The captivating beauty of a diamond is in its ability to reflect light and sparkle like no other precious jewel can. ‘Cut’ with diamonds is not to do with the diamond’s shape, such as pear, oval, or round, but rather to do with how close to optimal the placement and proportion of the many facets of the stone is. The more skillfully the diamond has been cut, the more fire and brilliance will be apparent. Diamond graders work under laboratory condition to analyse how close a diamond has been cut to the ideal proportions. The grade the diamond is then given is referred to as the ‘Cut’ of the diamond ranging from ‘Excellent’ (perfect), ‘Very Good’, (indistinguishable from Perfect unless you’re an expert) At Grace Diamonds, we strive to provide diamonds that have maximum brilliance and beauty.
    2. Clarity
    Almost every diamond has impurities called ‘inclusions’ or ‘blemishes’. The closer the diamond comes to flawless, the greater the value placed on it. These inclusions are often so tiny that they cannot be seen without 10x magnification. When buying a diamond, one should strive for at least eye-clear, that is inclusions that cannot be seen with the naked eye.
    3. Colour
    The colour of a diamond or rather the lack of it, is indicated by using an alphabet scale ranging from D = colourless to Z = very yellow or brown. Colour grading is done by measuring diamonds against a master set of stones under strict lighting conditions. Very subtle colour differences make a big difference to diamond value, but often they are so minimal that they are barely visible to the untrained eye and there is tremendous value to be had in the midrange of the scale.
    4. Carat
    Diamond carat weight put simply tells you about its size. Diamonds are already rare, and as size and carat weight increase, they become more scarce. At Grace Diamonds, our promise is luxury at an affordable price, which means we offer the best diamonds at a price that won’t break the bank. By adhering strictly to the standard set out by the 4Cs, and aiming to deliver the highest quality in luxury jewellery, the Grace Diamond experience is as unforgettable and high-class as the diamond itself.

Diamonds are commodities so they are priced differently and the price fluctuates. But what we do is strive to give you the best price available in the market on the day.

Working within your budget, we will source the finest metals, gemstones and diamonds for your perfect engagement ring or occasion piece. We will assist and guide you to determine the correct specifications so that your quote is accurate and clear.

Lab-created diamonds, also known as synthetic or cultured diamonds, offer several benefits when compared to natural mined diamonds. One benefit is that they are typically less expensive. This is because lab-created diamonds are created in a controlled environment, which allows for a more efficient and cost-effective production process.

Please note that the value of diamonds may be subject to change over time due to factors such as supply and demand, technological advancements, and market trends. While we strive to provide the most accurate and up-to-date information about our lab-grown and natural diamonds, we cannot guarantee their future in value. As with any investment, we encourage our customers to make informed decisions based on their own research and preferences

Some people may prefer natural diamonds because they believe they are more rare and valuable, while others may prefer lab-grown diamonds because they are more affordable.

In general, it seems that lab-grown diamonds are becoming more popular and widely accepted, as advances in technology have made it possible to produce diamonds that are chemically and optically identical to natural diamonds. However, natural diamonds are still the more popular choice for many people and are often considered a symbol of love and commitment- due to it’s rarity.

Ultimately, the decision between a lab-grown diamond and a natural diamond should be based on the individual’s personal preferences and values.
