GIA tips for right choice of diamond for your valentine

Feb '06
Gemological Institute of America (GIA) says that these five easy tips can help relieve your worries to purchase Valentine's Day jewelry for your loved one

Tip 1: Capture a heart with diamonds and gems.

Just about everyone, girl and guy, loves jewelry, and it's a romantic sentiment that will strike the right chord on virtually any day of the year.

But it's important to know what your special interest likes and will happily wear.

On Valentine's Day, girls especially love carefully thought-out symbolism.

Think outside the "jewelry" box, such as having a custom-made heart pendant with a red ruby to prove your passion.

Tip 2: Take two important web tutorials at http://www.gia.edu.

GIA helps educate the public on how to purchase gems and jewelry and has created two online tutorials that teach the basics of diamonds and gemstones.

Each site features an interactive guide -- Lucy in the "How to Buy a Diamond" tutorial, and Ruby Tuesday in "How to Buy a Gemstone in 7 Simplified Steps."

Lucy and Ruby reveal some of the most important information needed to make the right buying decision, including the famous Four Cs of diamond value -- color, clarity, cut, and carat weight -- which GIA created in 1953.

Tip 3: Don't wing it.

Go to a trusted source.

You'll be an angel when you deliver a delicious box of chocolates, flowers, or football tickets, along with personally engraved jewelry this Valentine's Day.
