How to buy a Valentine's Day Diamond Online and Love it!


With Valentine’s Diamonds Sales and the upcoming summer weddings, we often hear people ask, “How can I buy a diamond online and make sure it’s the one I want?”  No worries, we have some useful tips to flaunt a gorgeous diamond ring in time for February 14, 2017.

1)       Have an idea of what you want.  The more details you can offer the diamond dealer, the faster they can make a recommendation.  A good way to start is to know the carat weight and shape that would make you happy.  For ring orders, knowing the type of metal and ring size is also helpful.  If it is for a special holiday, such as Valentine’s Day, let the consultant know so you receive delivery in time for the special day.


2)      Choose your diamond supplier carefully.  We recommend you choose a company whose consultants are diamond experts over those who simply hire customer service representatives to fill the order.  Look at reviews and make a phone call to talk to the consultants to determine their level of expertise. The more you know, the more you will save.


3)      Talk and ask questions!  No question is too silly when it comes to diamonds.  Whether you are curious about a diamond’s characteristics, an enhancement process, or even how to choose a ring setting to fit her personality, do not hesitate to ask.  This is where tip #2 can really help.


4)      Share your budget with the diamond consultant.  This may sound counter-intuitive, however, you will find it will help get you through the process more efficiently with a better result.  In addition to being able to make recommendations more quickly, sharing this information up-front helps the dealer to find the right combination of characteristics that will give you the best value for your dollar.


5)      Ask for actual photos or videos.  Although diamonds are very difficult to photograph due to their high reflectivity, this will help you determine if you like the general appearance of the diamond.  This is especially helpful when considering a fancy shape like a cushion or princess cut, as the proportions of these shapes can vary diamond to diamond.  Featured below:  3.03 ct GIA Certified Cushion Cut, natural HPHT diamond.


6)      Request the diamond certificate or appraisal report.  Grading reports will confirm the characteristics of the diamond you are considering. 


7)      View the diamond in person.  If you are not near the company location for an appointment, ask to see the diamond before you commit.  Hadar Diamonds offers an In-Home Preview where you can view a diamond in the comfort of your own home, at no charge or obligation.  Hadar Diamonds will FedEx overnight the diamond so your ring will be ready in time for Valentine’s Day.  We invite you to call 619.572.8100 or request an In-Home Diamond Preview here:
