Gifting diamonds to a newly-wed couple
With the wedding season here, there are so many gifts one can think of! While jewellery and fancy gadgets are always going to stay on the list, you can try something different. If it is one of your close friends or cousin who is getting married, you can consider diamonds. And don’t be surprised, they don’t have to rip you off. It is, however, advisable to go for something that is moderately expensive. You won’t be gifting diamonds at all the weddings, so it is okay to choose something grand.
At the same time, don’t go all out and splurge to the extent that you’ll regret it later. Of course, you love your friend or cousin. Which is why you’re gifting diamonds in the first place. Let’s see what you can do to get hold of some amazing solitaires.
Gifting diamonds on the occasion
If you plan to gift something to your friend as well as their partner, plan the gift accordingly. But that mainly works only if you know both of them quite well for a long time. In such a case, identical diamond pendants do the trick. A diamond ring is quite an intimate gifting option for both the spouses. And if they’re not family, don’t go for it. Play safe with the pendants.
If it is only your friend you are planning to give a gift to, then you can simply choose a pair of diamond stud earrings. And she is surely going to be grateful for that! Diamond stud earrings are essential jewellery-box pieces and any woman would love to have a pair! Be sure to pick a design that is simple and classy.
While fixing a budget, don’t be too cheap. If you are gifting diamonds, then do so with an open heart. You can also opt for a solitaire which she can later use for her jewellery. That way you can leave the choice to her.
Always pick quality over quantity
If you’re customising the earrings, go for a simple setting. Trying to play a lot with the design can spell disaster. The prong setting on a pair of earrings not only supports the diamond but also enhances the design.
When it comes to the diamond, pay heed to the 4Cs. This is where the pricing is under your control. Choosing a light piece of diamond jewellery ensures that you don’t overspend. At the same time, don’t compromise on the diamond quality. Instead of having many small badly cut diamonds, it is better to go for perfectly cut solitaires.
Depending upon the colour of the jewellery metal, you can choose the degree of colour in the diamond. And if you’re gifting diamonds just as they are, then ensure that they are higher on the quality scale. Diamonds are meaningful gifts and so make it special!
