Considerations When Choosing Diamond Jewellery for Mother
Selecting a diamond for someone as unique as your mother is not as straightforward as picking the shiniest piece in the store. After all, each diamond, much like our mothers, tells a unique story. To truly honour her, you must be aware of certain factors:
Understanding the 4Cs: The gem industry swears by the 4Cs - Cut, Clarity, Carat, and Color. These determine the quality and value of the diamond. Is she a fan of larger gems? Focus on carat weight. Does she love sparkles? The cut is your best bet.
Choosing the right style: Does your mother exude a vintage charm, or is she more of a modern maven? Understanding her style can guide you towards a piece she’ll cherish forever. Perhaps she’s a blend of both, in which case, a contemporary piece with classic undertones would be splendid.
In essence, the perfect diamond isn’t just about spending the most, but about the thought, understanding, and love that goes into choosing it. After all, it's meant for a person whose value is immeasurable.

1. What's the difference between carat and karat?
Carat refers to the weight of a gemstone, specifically diamonds. One carat is equivalent to 200 milligrams. Karat, on the other hand, is a measure of the purity of gold, with 24-karat gold being pure gold.
2. How do I ensure the authenticity of the diamond jewellery I purchase?
Always seek certifications from recognized gemological institutions. A certificate will provide details on the diamond's cut, carat, clarity, and color.
3. Can I get my diamond jewellery resized or modified later?
Yes, HOQ offers resizing services for ring size +/- 1 size. However, it's best to consult with us first, as certain designs might be challenging to alter without compromising the integrity of the piece.
4. How should I care for and clean my diamond jewellery?
Use a soft brush, warm water, and mild soap. Gently scrub the diamond and rinse with clean water. For more intricate pieces or older jewellery, consider professional cleaning.
5. Are diamonds a good investment?
Diamonds can be a store of value, but like any investment, their price can fluctuate. When buying diamond jewellery, prioritize personal significance and aesthetics over investment potential.
6. How can I tell if a diamond is ethically sourced?
Ask the jeweller for information on the diamond's origin. As compared to Mined Diamonds which are sourced from digging up the earth, Lab diamonds are grown under closely monitored conditions and are significantly less harmful to the environment. Sustainable diamonds are the choice of the future.
