Here, in today’s day and age, almost any topic is open for debate. You might be quite surprised to find some of the issues you thought were settled are actually still being openly discussed.
Before starting to shop for diamonds, consider dealing with a bonded jeweler. Bonded jewelers sell bonded diamonds, and there are very few bonded jewelers in the world. In fact, out of all of the jewelers in the world, only about 5% of them are bonded. Buying a bonded diamond will cost more than buying a non-bonded diamond, however, when you look at what you get with the bonded option, you will see that it is definitely worth the extra expense.
First of all, bonded diamonds have a buy back policy for the life of the diamond. No matter when you bought the diamond, you can take it back to the bonded jeweler and sell it back to him, for a 100% refund. If a jeweler does not offer a 100% buy back guarantee for the life of the diamond, then you should probably take a closer look at the diamond to see what is wrong with it.
Bonded diamonds have a breakage policy also. If the stone breaks or chips, the bonded jeweler will replace it with a new one, but only one time. Of course, no jeweler would ever offer such a policy on any stone not 100% natural, so just the offer of such a policy by itself should give you piece of mind concerning the quality of the diamond. Bonded diamonds are natural and untreated.
Now, the best time to learn more about diamonds is before you’re in the thick of things. If you’re a wise reader, you will keep reading to earn some valuable diamonds experience while it’s still free.
Bonded diamonds increase in value, with a fixed appreciation rate that is designed to keep up with inflation. Simply put, this means that a diamond that is worth a certain amount of money today will be worth more in the future, as the price of diamonds continues to rise. Generally, however, this doesn’t apply to buy backs. It typically applies to trade-ins.
Alternately, by purchasing a bonded diamond, you are automatically protected against the possibility of a market crash. If a market crash occurs, the value of diamonds will drop. However, the bonded jeweler guarantees to refund you the difference between what the diamond is worth now and what you paid for it before the market crash.
Though it may be difficult, try to find a bonded jeweler in your area, simply because this is who you want to deal with, as opposed to dealing with an unbonded jeweler. Tell the jeweler specifically that you are only interested in bonded diamonds. You can find a bonded jeweler in your area by using various online resources, or by calling the jewelry stores around you.
