The Beauty of Diamonds
The process to make a diamond takes millions of years and is formed deep within the earth’s mantle. As the hardest mineral known to man, they are incredibly durable and resistant to damage.
Diamonds are mostly colorless. The color of a diamond, however, is determined by the level of impurities present in the stone. This means they can be found in various other natural colors such as yellow, brown, pink, and blue.
Types of Diamond Jewelry
A wide variety of jewelry styles feature diamonds. They range from classic to modern. Some of the most popular types of diamond jewelry include:
For many people, engagement rings are often the first piece of diamond jewelry they own. Engagement rings usually feature a large single diamond. It is common though for additional diamonds and gemstones to complete the design.
Diamond earrings are a beautiful addition to any jewelry collection. Stud earrings with a single diamond are a classic choice. But when you want a more dramatic look go for diamond hoops and drop earrings.
Diamond necklaces can range from simple solitaire pendants to more intricate designs featuring multiple strands of diamonds. Layer these pieces with other necklaces for a more personalized look.
Diamond bracelets including the classic Tennis Bracelet are also an excellent choice when you want to dress up an outfit.
Choosing Diamond Jewelry
When choosing diamond jewelry, there are several factors to consider, such as cut, color, clarity, and carat weight. That is where we come in! The knowledgeable staff at Karats Jewelers in Overland Park, Kansas are experts in diamonds! We will make sure to find the perfect stone or stones for you. We will also keep in mind the piece of jewelry you choose fits both your style and budget.
There is another aspect of choosing the right diamonds that is very important to us. We guarantee that all of the diamonds at Karats Jewelers are conflict-free. We follow the Kimberley Process to reduce the flow of conflict diamonds (rough diamonds used by rebel movements to finance wars against governments). Adhering to strict requirements that ensure every diamond is not funding violence is a top priority!
Caring for Diamond Jewelry
To keep diamond jewelry looking its best, it’s important to clean it regularly. Use a soft-bristled brush and a mixture of water and mild soap. Storing diamond jewelry separately from other pieces is also important to prevent scratches. Don’t forget we also offer cleanings and repairs on all diamond jewelry at Karats Jewelers!
