Important Terms Relating to Diamond Buying
The following are some terms that relate to diamonds and other gemstones.

AGS: The AGS, or American Gem Society, is an educational institute that focuses on gemological studies. The AGS developed the standards that are used today when grading a diamond. Color, cut, and clarity are major factors that affect the value of a diamond.

Blemish: A blemish is an imperfection on a diamond’s surface. Some blemishes do occur naturally, but most blemishes occur after a diamond has been removed from the earth.

Crown: The crown is the upper part of a gemstone that has been cut. This portion of a diamond or other gemstone lies above the stone’s girdle. In an engagement ring, wedding ring, and other jewelry, the crown is what typically sits up above the setting.

Eye-clean: An eye-clean gem is one that has no imperfections that are visible with the naked eye. An eye-clean diamond or other gemstone may have imperfections that are visible with a microscope or other equipment, though.

Feathers: Feathers are tiny cracks in a diamond, which often appear feathery when viewed under a microscope. Feathers may be entirely within a diamond, or they may extend to the surface of the gemstone. A diamond with feathers is not necessary excluded from use in earrings, pendants, or other jewelry, but care must be taken with the gem to avoid increasing the damage. Feathers are typically naturally occurring. They often form when the diamond experiences pressure underground while it is forming.

Girdle: The girdle is the band around a cut gemstone. It sits at the base of the crown. Girdles can be unpolished, polished, and even faceted. Depending on the particular gemstone cut, a girdle’s thickness will vary.

Inclusion: Inclusions are imperfections that are found on or within a diamond. Inclusions only refer to imperfections that occur naturally on or in a gem, like feathers.

Pavilion: The pavilion of a diamond or other cut gemstone is the bottom portion of the stone. The pavilion sits below the girdle, and it is often covered by a jewelry setting. Like the rest of the diamond, the pavilion contains many facets.

A diamond is a significant investment for any individual, so it's important to buy from a qualified broker. Seeking out a broker doesn't have to mean you're looking for an engagement ring. You might also be shopping for a gold necklace, bracelet, or earrings. A broker will allow you to buy loose diamonds, select your own band, and choose from gold or platinum for your setting. To protect yourself and your investment, however, be sure to ask some questions to ensure your broker is qualified.

  • Where did you receive your training?
    Any qualified broker will have received his or her training from any number of institutions, but the degree should result in the title of Graduate Gemologist.

  • Do you have certification?
    Once a degree has been achieved, a broker can receive certification from the American Gem Society. This can include certifications in not only gemology, but appraisal as well. Brokers that are certified to appraise diamonds get re-certified annually.

  • What types of diamonds do you deal with?
    Brokers generally deal with loose diamonds, but ask about the size, shape, color, clarity, and cut that they offer. These factors are especially important when looking for a diamond for an engagement ring or heirloom jewelry.

  • How long have you been a broker?
    An experienced broker may be invaluable, especially if you're seeking more rare or antique gemstones such as yellow or pink diamonds for your jewelry.

  • Do you have a specialty?
    Some brokers deal only in smaller stones, while others will work only with larger sizes. Be sure your broker is capable of accessing the type of diamond you're looking for.
