Understanding Diamonds

The history of diamonds is as fascinating as their sparkle. These precious gemstones are adored for their beauty and resilience. The 4Cs of Diamonds—Cut, Clarity, Color, and Carat—are crucial in defining their allure. At Paramount Jewelers, we place a high emphasis on these attributes, especially in our superior-grade loose diamonds sourced ethically from partners in India, Israel, and Belgium.

Necessary Tools and Materials for Diamond Setting

Setting a diamond requires expert advice and the right tools. Paramount Jewelers takes pride in the exceptional craftsmanship that goes into each piece of jewelry. Choosing the correct materials enhances the diamond's beauty and guarantees a setting that lasts a lifetime.

Preparing the Diamond for Setting

A diamond must be thoroughly cleaned and inspected for flaws before setting. Ensuring the diamond fits the mounting is crucial. Paramount Jewelers' Lifetime Diamond and Gemstone Guarantee, along with the Gold and Mounting Guarantee, attests to our dedication to this process.

Choosing the Right Diamond Setting Style

There are several setting styles, each exuding a unique charm. From prong to the bezel, pave to channel setting, selecting the right style for your diamond is an art in itself. Feel free to speak with our experts at Paramount Jewelers to understand the right fit for your diamond.
