Buying Your First Diamond
What it feels like to buy your first diamond
By Tracey Bradley
Okay so I bought my own diamond for the first time when I was 23 and it was really exciting to shop for it. But there's a lot to keep in mind when it comes to buying diamonds. For example I needed to know whether the diamond is real or fake when you buy it. That means you need to buy it from a reputable retailer or if you buy it from someone then you need to really know how to tell if it's real or not.
That's the first thing. Then you also have to consider all the different things that you need to know when buying a diamond. For example there are many types of diamonds and many different colors of diamonds. You can also buy loose diamonds which is an entirely different buying experience.
The type of diamond that I bought was from an estate sale and I did check to make sure it wasn't CZ by rubbing a little sandpaper on the top and I did use a loop to make sure there was an inclusion in there and there was. I was really excited to have that even though it was only half a carat but having access to knowledge about how to buy diamonds was really important.
There's also blood diamonds and you want to avoid those at all cost because someone has often times lost their life and those cases. Do you have anything to share about your first diamond buying
