If you are looking to learn how to tell if a diamond is real, what the largest diamond in the world is, or how much a single carat diamond is worth you have come to the right place! We will be answering all of those and more this time on the Stewart Kuper Jewelers blog!

How to Tell if a Diamond is Real

While you should always know your diamonds are real when purchased from a reputable, certified jeweler it’s possible a diamond came into your possession through inheritance, or as a gift so that knowing its authenticity can be difficult.  

How Much is a Single Carat Diamond Worth

This question can be answered, but it isn’t going to be the definitive kind you are looking for. Diamonds can be priced by the carat, but the stones themselves are so unique that a single carat diamond could be as little as $3,000 or as expensive as $20,000. Again this is where a professional appraisal can give you a much more accurate and useful number.

In the case of Stewart Kuper Jewelers, we pay extra on any diamond ½ carat or more! So if you’re looking to sell your unloved diamonds, give us a call.

What is the Largest Cut Diamond in the World

The largest cut diamond in the world is the ‘Star of Africa I’ at 530 carats! It was cut from the largest gem-quality rough diamond, the Cullinan diamond at 3,106-carats. The ‘Star of Africa,’ also known as Cullinan I, is one of nine different diamonds. Read more on the Cullinan diamond.

How to Make a Diamond

Oh this one is simple, take some carbon, go down to the Upper Mantle of the Earth, and wait for about a billion years. There, over time, the incredibly high heat and pressure will press the carbon denser and denser until it forms a diamond. Easy right?

Where to Buy a Diamond Ring

Guess what? This is going to be the same answer as the best place to sell a diamond ring that we talked about last time. And that’s face to face, with a local, trusted jeweler. Getting the right ring takes a whole lot more than just finding the right price tag. The look, the feel, the style, the individual diamond itself – all of these things can’t be truly known without seeing it in person.

Seeing it in person is what Stewart Kuper Jewelers is all about.
