hi, i'm judy carrier with jewels by park lane.i'm going to talk to you about buying diamond rings. first of all, decide who is it for.if it's buying for yourself, it's a lot easier. if you're buying it for someone else, youhave to take into consideration what they like and what appeals to them. first of allyou have to decide what kind you're going to buy. i mean there's so many things to lookfor, you have to determine what type of cut you want. what color? you need to decide theshape of the ring. and take into consideration if you're buying it for someone else, howbig is her hand because you don't want to get a rock, that's you know, going to feelthat heavy, the whole thing. unless of course you're really trying to impress her and thatcan do it. the other thing, color is very,
very important and that will determine thevalue of your diamond as well. you know, blue and, is one of the more expensive colors.when you get into the yellows and browns, they're not as quite as expensive. the mostpopular one, when you're thinking like an engagement ring or something is, i would say,a clear white diamond because that reflects light and that is one of the things that youlook for, the different facets in cutting the ring. the other thing that's really importantwhen you're buying a diamond is your price range and that is probably one of the thingsyou have to decide first because that will determine the size, the weight, the colorand the cut. so start with that. then once you get that baby, get it insured; that wayyou don't have to worry about it when you
give it to her. i'm judy carrier with jewelsby park lane.
