Welcome to the Canadian Diamond Buying Guide. If this is your first visit, please take a look at our introductory buying guide in 4 easy steps!

Step 1, Educate Yourself About Diamonds!

First, you need to educate yourself about diamonds. We recommend that you read our section about the Diamonds 4 c’s : Color, Cut, Clarity and Carat size.

In that section, you will learn why the quality and the price of diamonds always vary based on the 4 c’s.

We also recommend you to take a quick look at our Diamond Shape page which explains the various shapes available these days on the market. It will help you to make the right choice about the shape of your diamond.

Step 2, Establish What Your budget is!

How many month’s salary should a guy spend for an engagement ring? If you spend more money, does that mean she will think that you love her more? We suggest you visit our section called How Much Should I Spend on a Diamond Ring? to find out!

Step 3, Find a Good Jeweler Locally or Online!

You can start by shopping locally by visiting jewelers in your area. Please read the following before you start shopping:

Essential Tips Before you Buy a Diamond Ring

Don’t buy just yet! Now that you’ve found a good setting for your ring, please ask the jeweller to give you the exact price of the diamond he is offering you. Rush back home and look online to compare the price of his diamond with a reputable online retailer of certified diamonds and fine jewellery.

Step 4, Closing the deal!

It’s now time to close the deal with either your local jeweller or your online retailer. See our How to Close the Deal section which provides you with good avise for both online and local retailers.
