Diamond Database

Let me tell you about a SPARKLY new website! It's called Diamond Database and it's FREE!
If you want to expand your knowledge about diamonds or you're thinking about purchasing a diamond,
definitely check out this site. I found it to be very informative and learned a lot of cool things.
Here are some highlights!

Diamond Database gives you detailed pictures, descriptions and sizes by carat for EVERY diamond imaginable. Learn about round brilliant, emerald, princess, radiant, asscher, cushion, pear, marquise, oval, heart, and trillion cut diamonds. Diamond Database tells you what to look for, what to watch out for and where to buy the best diamonds. It's very helpful!

Diamond Database lets you COMPARE different cuts, styles and sizes of diamonds! Want to know the difference between a 1 carat round and 2 carat round? Plug it into the Diamond Database widget and it will show you a visual comparison. You can also compare different styles of diamonds, such as the 3 carat round and 3 carat pear below.

My FAVORITE feature on Diamond Database is a widget, where you enter the dimensions of your ring finger, allowing you to "TRY ON" a particular cut, size or style of diamond. It's a great way to compare and contrast what looks good on YOUR finger. There's even a feature where you can adjust the skin tone & band color of the ring. This will definitely let you know, what looks good on YOU!

Diamond Database is a user-friendly site where you can compare & learn about diamond styles, shapes, sizes and characteristics. Learn about color, clarity, diamond certifications and MORE! 
When purchasing a diamond, it's important to be knowledgeable of these terms beforehand.  
Just as a diamond is BRILLIANT, you should be too!

What girl doesn't love diamonds? If you are going to buy any diamonds, it's best to be informed before you go so you don't get ripped off. Looks like a great site, especially if you're planning to buy something really important like an engagement ring. Thanks for sharing Kim :D sparkle2day

What a sparkly way to start off the week. This looks like a very informative site and what girl doesn't like diamonds?! Having said that, I used to have some significant diamond rings but they belong to "another" life (it's a long story) and I'm actually far more happy now - even without diamonds :-) Have a lovely start to the week xo

Happy Monday, Kim! I hope you had an awesome 4th of July weekend. And what a post to come back with - it sounds like the Diamond Database is a fun place to test your jewelry knowledge and try on a few sparklers at the same time. I'm pretty sure I could lose myself trying on virtual rings all day, ha ha!

Although I WISH i was getting something with a diamond in it, i probably will not! the advice is very useful all the same.
Thank you for visiting my blog [again]. It is much appreciated!

Marie McGrath (The Joy of Fashion) said...

What an awesome website idea! I've always wondered the difference between diamonds. When I go to a jewelry store and they ask me what cut I like, I never know what to say. This is definitely very helpful!

Hi Kim, interesting web I dont know much about diamonds, but today learned something :)


Beauty Fashion Skin Care Blog - Girlie Blog Seattle said...

EXCELLENT post! It's very informative. Not until I got engaged did I ever become interested in diamonds, but the stone and the business both have so much knowledge and details. It's actually extremely important to learn about diamonds before committing to one.

Thanks for the great post.
