Located in Maspeth, New York, Lafyes Jewelry provides customers with gorgeous custom jewelry and services that include jewelry repair, appraisal, and engraving.
However, before you set out on your quest to have the jewelry of your dreams custom made, perhaps you should know some important facts about diamonds and how they enhance your jewelry choice. Many may know that before you begin any diamond selection process, you must consider the four C's: carat weight, clarity, cut, and color. These four elements determine diamond grade, and more importantly how they are valued and priced. While many assume that the weight of a carat refers to its size, that is actually inaccurate. Carat refers to the actual weight of the stone.
It's also important to know that the setting you choose for a diamond can affect its coloring. For example, if a stone is more yellow in color, a yellow-gold setting can help to downplay the color and bring out its whiter elements, making it appear brighter.
