How To Buy A Loose Diamond

Have you been wondering how to shop for a loose diamond— whether you are considering a loose diamond as the start of an engagement ring, to upgrade an existing piece of jewelry, or for another design entirely? Nothing compares to the brilliance and fire of a loose diamond. By purchasing a loose diamond apart from a setting, you are able to get the best look at the stone to really see the 4 C’s— cut, color, clarity, and carat weight— up close. You can view inclusions that a setting might otherwise hide or distract from, allowing you to make an informed decision about the diamond you are investing in.At Villarreal Jewelers, we are happy to offer Austin-area diamond-seekers an extensive collection of loose diamonds, including different diamond shapes from round brilliant, princess, oval, cushion, and radiant cuts, to different fancy color diamonds.
