9. What are tips for choosing the best diamond?

We always recommend you buy the diamond that you like best.  After all, it should bring you happiness when you see it.  It is always best to view a diamond in different lighting.  It is important to see the way it sparkles in plenty of light, but also how it shines in very low light as well.  When choosing a diamond, consider the 4Cs as well as your budget.  The better each of its Cs, the more rare and more expensive. 

10. Can you explain the 4 C's of diamonds?

The 4Cs are: Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat Weight.  Together, they determine a diamond’s rarity and value.  See more about them in our diamond guide.

11. Should I insure my Eighty-Eight® diamond jewelry?

As with any major purchase, we absolutely recommend insuring your diamond purchase. A Perfect Circle is an industry trusted source.

12. What's the best way to clean my Eighty-Eight® diamond jewelry?

Keeping your Eighty-Eight® diamonds clean is very simple.  We recommend soaking them in warm water with a little grease-cutting dish detergent.  Use a clean, soft toothbrush to gently scrub away any stubborn dirt. Then rinse thoroughly with cool water.  At least once a year, take it to your jeweler for a professional cleaning and inspection.  They can check it for any loose stones or wear.

13. I have found cheaper diamond jewelry. Why?

Inexpensive diamond jewelry does exist.  However, we focus on quality.  Cheap diamond jewelry cannot compare to the level of excellence required in the Eighty-Eight® line.  We are always happy to share our diamond knowledge and help you understand the details of any stone in our collection.
