What Should I Look for When Buying a Diamond Engagement Ring?
WBuying an engagement ring can be exciting, but may also be overwhelming! When shopping for diamond engagement rings, all couples should be aware of the 4cs: diamond colour, clarity, cut, and carat. As an overview, diamond colour refers to the whiteness, or lack of colour in the diamond. Surprisingly, the whiter or clearer the diamond, the more rare the diamond is. Clarity refers to the level of perfection in the diamonds - in essence, it measures the number and size of the imperfections in the diamonds. The less imperfections on the diamond, the more rare the diamond is likely to be, thus increasing the cost. There is a Diamond Clarity Grading chart, which can be found more in depth here. Cut refers to how well the diamond has been cut - it is important to keep in mind that the better the cut of the diamond, the better sparkle and brilliance your diamond engagement ring will have. Ideally, the best cut has the highest grade of polish and symmetry. Lastly, carat refers to the weight of the diamond. As the weight increases, so does the price of the diamond. At Livia Diamonds, we will ensure you get the most stunning engagement ring within your budget and specifications while following the 4Cs. It is important to note that at Livia Diamonds, we do not grade the diamond engagement rings; they are graded by agencies around the world before they come to us.
While we encourage everyone shopping for engagement rings to keep the 4Cs in mind, here at Livia Diamonds we also tell all of our shoppers to look beyond the 4Cs, catalogues and magazines when looking for the perfect diamond ring. It is important to remember that all diamonds are different, just as everyone's style of engagement rings is different. It is important to choose your engagement ring, or your custom engagement ring, based on your partners personal style and what appeals most to you. What one person thinks is their perfect ring may not be another persons, so it is important that you shop and purchase your special piece of jewelry from the heart. For many couples, the custom design process here at Livia Diamonds is a great option, as it ensures they are getting their perfect engagement ring.

Diamond Certification for Engagement Rings Toronto
A diamond certificate, otherwise known as a Diamond Quality Document or Diamond Grading Report, is a certificate that is issued to prove that the diamond underwent a professional examination and grading before being sold. It is important to note that Diamond Certificates are not graded by jewellers themselves, but from numerous agencies around the world. Currently, the most reliable agency is from the GIA (Gemological Institute of America). As an overview, the GIA validates the diamonds weight, colour and clarity. It is important to note that the GIA provides an unbiased opinion, and once this examination has been completed, a certificate is then issued.
Regardless if you are buying an engagement ring, wedding rings, diamond rings or diamond earrings, a Diamond Certification should always be provided when buying diamond jewelry, regardless of where you are shopping. When shopping for engagement rings in downtown Toronto, this is important as you may find stores selling loose diamonds, diamond rings or cubic zirconia. A reputable jeweller will ensure that you are provided with a Diamond Certificate when you are shopping for your engagement ring to authenticate the diamond. At Livia Diamonds, we will always provide you with a Diamond Certificate, and our extremely knowledgeable staff will also give your diamond a secondary inspection to ensure the grade of the diamond you are interested in is fair and accurate.
Giving Back when Purchasing Engagement Rings Toronto
At Livia Diamonds, we truly believe in paying it forward and giving back whenever we can, which is why when you purchase an engagement ring from Livia Diamonds, you are also supporting SickKids Hospital. We are proud to say a percentage of every sale, regardless if you choose to create a custom ring or purchase a ring that is pre designed, goes directly to SickKids hospital, so you can rest assured knowing you are making a difference when purchasing your engagement ring.
