Top tips for buying diamonds

As diamonds are such a big investment, there are certain things you should consider before making your purchase.

If you are buying your diamonds as a gift, consider the recipient’s style. Why not take a look in their jewellery box to see what styles, cuts and metal alloys they prefer?

Whether the purchase is for yourself or someone else, it is always worth thinking about:

1. Think about the 4Cs


The 4Cs refer to the carat, colour, clarity and cut of the diamond. You need to bear all of these in mind before you buy an item of diamond jewellery.

2. Make sure you get a certificate


A certificate from an independent source guarantees the quality of your diamond.

3. Choose the shape carefully.


Different diamond shapes, such as pear, round or princess, offer different advantages to your diamond. A round cut diamond is by far the most popular and typically gives you more flexibility regarding balancing the 4Cs while still getting the fire and brilliance you seek. By contrast, the princess cut is more modern and cheaper than the round cut.

Finding diamonds in Düsseldorf’s Altstadt

Düsseldorf’s Altstadt (Old Town) is well worth a visit if you want to see the sights and revel in the city’s history. Covering only half a kilometre squared, this area of the city is known as ‘the longest bar in the world’ because it contains more than 300 bars and discothèques. As well as places to eat and drink and famous tourist attractions, such as the Schlossturm (palace tower) and Rathaus (city hall), the Altstadt in Düsseldorf is also a great place to go shopping. There are many jewellery shops, though most sell costume jewellery. You will be hard-pressed to find real diamonds in the Altstadt, so it would be better to wander around Königsalle, where most designer jewellers can be found in Düsseldorf, including the BAUNAT showroom.
