Diamond Buying Guide

Buying a diamond doesn't have to be complicated. All diamonds share certain features that allow us to compare and evaluate them. These features are called, the 4Cs. Using our diamond education section, you will get clear and comprehensive information about each of these characteristics and be able to make an informed decision.


The cut of diamond is especially important because it influences a diamond's reflective nature - the diamond's brillance and personality. Learn how the cut affects the overall quality, value and beauty of a stone and ultimately find the right diamond cut for your budget.


Color is also of the most important factors to consider when selecting a diamond. DreamStone carries only the highest grades of diamond colors. Learn how color affects the quality and value of a diamond to find the right one for you.


A diamond's clarity is the relative absence of inclusions, their number, location, size, and nature. Learn how to decide which clarity grade you prefer.


Carat refers to a diamond's weight. Let us help you decide how to balance carat weight and quality to fit your budget.


The shape of the center stone that you choose is very important because it can dramatically affect the overall look of your ring. Learn about all the shapes that DreamStone has to offer.
