Many of our products have an option to upgrade the carat weight of the diamond used in the piece. Upgrading the carat of the diamond means that you are increasing the size of the diamonds in the jewellery you are buying.
The greater the weight of the diamond, the bigger and more impressive it will look.
Larger diamonds are always rarer than smaller ones, and that increases the size of your investment. Only consider upgrading the size of the diamond if you know that you already like the design and style of the jewellery and have adequate budget to buy a more impressive stone.
When thinking about increasing the size of the diamond, take note of the sizes of diamonds used in your other jewellery. Or, if buying a gift, consider the existing jewellery of the recipient, make your choice in the light of her other pieces.
Do you want this piece to be larger and more impressive than others that the recipient owns, or do you prefer that the piece blends with the recipient’s other jewellery?
Below you can see the different sizes of diamonds that All Diamond sells. Use the chart to get an idea of how much difference buying a larger carat weight diamond will make.
All Diamond only sells diamonds that are in the top five grades of diamonds. All our diamonds are of high quality and will not have any obvious flaws. However, if you want to buy the best possible quality with the greatest degree of sparkle, then choosing a higher grade of diamond will be a wise choice.
Will you notice a difference by moving up a grade? A higher-grade diamond will have a better sparkle, the very reason we love diamonds!
You will have the best quality diamond that your budget will allow!
Which is better, white gold or platinum?
White gold is more easily affordable than platinum. The disadvantage of white gold is that its colour comes from a thin plating of rhodium which can wear away in a matter of months exposing the yellow gold below. It is common for a white gold ring to need replating every year or so on jewellery worn daily such as engagement rings.
Platinum is more expensive to buy in the first place but will always retain its white sheen. If you would like to learn more about how to choose the precious metals used in your jewellery, please check out our article HERE.
