When shopping for a diamond loose or a diamond ring. Do research ! First it is best to shop locally so you can easily get in touch with the jeweler you are buying from and working with. Check reviews online in several places anybody can post a picture of diamond for sale but is that diamond they are showing the one you actually get? Many times it isn't the picture is a sample diamond because the diamond you are paying for that is being advertised for an extremely low price has clarity issues or is not that white. Make sure you ask questions and do research on who you are buying from.
