At DeRocks, we recommend you look for the following characteristics to buy a high quality diamond:

Colour - D-G with no fluorescence

Clarity - Flawless VS2

Cut - Triple Excellent (or at least excellent, excellent, very good)

Finally, make sure your diamond comes with a certificate from an independent diamond grading laboratory (GIA - Gemological Institute of America).
