How do I make my diamond talk to someone?By
The elegance of diamonds cannot be challenged in today’s world of sparkling jewelry. Nothing says “look at me” like a finely set diamond. If one looks around, diamonds appear almost everywhere and in many different settings. Taking that one step further, you may take the same diamond and place it in two different settings and realize two different effects on the visual presentation. The diamond, without a doubt is the most flexible of the fine stones.
The precious metal that you select as the setting is almost as important at the diamond itself. There are many fine choices that will set the diamond off in fine style. The neat thing about setting a diamond is that a diamond will look good in every setting providing that the workmanship is good and clean. Sterling silver is often the choice of more budget constrained purchasers. Sterling is the cheapest way to go when mounting a diamond and it is more than successful in displaying the stone. Also to be considered is the fact that Sterling wears much better than the other settings.
Gold settings generally give your diamond a more traditional setting. The presentation of a diamond set in Gold is an excellent presentation in varied lighting arrangements. The one real problem with gold is the fact that it is a soft metal and being soft, it attracts dents and scratches more easily. Being very careful with the gold set diamond is necessary, but it wears regardless of how careful one is with the setting. White gold also needs to be considered when selecting a setting. It is cheaper than platinum and the setting will compliment any diamond you might purchase. One thing that must be watched with white gold is the compounding agent in the metal. If there are traces of nickel in the agent, allergic reactions could be realized.
Platinum is the choice of well-heeled individuals who really want to show off the beautiful stone. Without a doubt, platinum is a super excellent setting for any diamond. It is even said that platinum will work wonders on a little cheaper stone with its presentation being almost doubled by the addition of platinum. Be very careful shopping for platinum and always do business with a jeweler who has a good reputation.
