When purchasing a loose diamond separately from the ring setting, you can get the best look at the diamond when it is loose. Additionally, this allows you to see the 4 C’s— Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat weight— up close and personal. When doing so, you can view inclusions that a setting might otherwise hide, not allowing you to make an informed decision about the diamond you are investing in. At Villarreal Diamond Engagement Ring and Fine Jewelry, we happily offer diamond-seekers a unique view of prospective loose diamonds. These diamonds may include such shapes as Round Brilliant, Princess-cut, Oval Brilliant, Cushion Brilliant, Radiant-cuts, Emerald-cuts and other fancy shapes. Furthermore, we offer colored diamonds for the connoisseur.
