How to work with a budget
Significant jewellery purchases can be daunting and we understand many customers may want to assess different options as they consider their potential budgets. At Vashi, we also offer fair finance plans to help you afford the perfect design, allowing payment in monthly installments over various time lengths.
Once you've outlined your budget then you'll need to get to know the 4 Cs, aka the rules of diamond grading. We’ll start by showing you loose, unset diamonds so you can see first-hand just what you’ll get for your money and which grading combinations will bring out the best in your design.
Focus on the Cut of a diamond as your primary consideration, as this is what generates a diamond’s sparkle. There’s more in-depth info on that here.
Dropping down a little on the scale of Carat weight, Clarity or Colour grade will help you stay on budget and can be cleverly concealed by a superior cut. So much so that the grading differences are hard to detect even when the diamond is viewed under a jeweller’s lens.
