Diamond rings are expensive. It is for this reason that you need to be sure they are original before buying them.

Appearance Of The Diamond Rings

Appearance says a lot and when it comes to diamond rings, there is no exception. To start with, you need to check the setting and the mount. There are several pieces of jewelry that look like diamonds-like cubic zirconia and moissanite- and with these the settings and the mounts will be of a very inferior quality. This is largely because of the fact that such stones are cheaper than original pieces of jewelry and because of this the mounts will not be worth making durable and superior in quality. Wear and tear is also another appearance factor to be wary of. Fake diamond rings like the cubic zirconia and the moissanite are fragile and susceptible to gradual wear and tear. So if the diamond rings you are looking to buy are fake, there will be a lot of scratches and nicks as these pieces are not durable.

Background Checks On The Diamond Rings

If you cannot buy the diamond rings from a registered and reputable dealer you might need to actually test the stone at the offices of a trusted jeweler. This should not be a problem if the jeweler you are looking to buy from has nothing to hide. As the jeweler looks through his/her loupe, he/she should be able to give you an answer instantly without you having to wait for long hours. Another way to do this properly is by asking a trusted jewelry tester to accompany you to a store. Of course you will have to pay for the services, but it is much better than paying for something that turns out to be fake. Having the diamond rings appraised by an independent appraiser who belongs to the American Institute of Appraisers is also a surefire way to get the true value of the piece. After an appraisal you will be able to ascertain if the diamond rings are fake or not since all original diamond rings are naturally supposed to be expensive.

Guarantees And Warranties On Diamond Rings

Diamond rings that are worth their face value are supposed to come with a warranty, generally for at least 5 years. If the jeweler you are buying from does not have one you should be skeptical. This is because the absence of a warranty means that you will not be able to get a refund when the diamond rings turn out to be fake. A guarantee is a contractual provision which helps to protect you as the buyer from being ripped off in instances where you have forked out an arm and a leg for an independent purchase. When you pay for the diamond rings make sure you ask for a contractual warranty which entitles you to a cash refund once cracks and nicks that are not supposed to occur start appearing a few months after purchase. You cannot be careless with your diamond rings just because you have a warranty.
