Frequently Asked Questions
I’ve never bought a diamond before and I don’t know what I’m doing. Can you help?
First, relax and take a deep breath. We believe that buying an engagement ring should be a fun experience that you look back on fondly. You shouldn’t have to worry and stress. We’ll teach you everything you need to know about diamonds and help you find a ring that you and your partner will cherish.
What is a GIA certified gemologist?
The GIA is the Gemological Institute of America, nonprofit institute focused on gemology education and research. To become a GIA certified gemologist requires 6 months of rigorous full-time study and hands-on training. It is the highest certification available. Many Portland jewelry stores do not employ any GIA certified gemologists.
Here at Malka Diamonds, we have 2 GIA certified gemologists on staff. Thanks to their advanced training and years of experience, they’re able to answer all of your questions about engagement rings and diamonds.
Do I Need To Know My Partner’s Ring Size?
We’ve seen it all-- even men who sneakily measured their partner’s finger while they slept! But it turns out that these estimates just can’t compare to an accurate ring sizing by one of our experienced jewelers. We recommend that you and your partner come back for a final sizing after the proposal. We want to see how much you both love your engagement ring from our Portland diamond and jewelry store!
Do your rings include cleaning and maintenance?
Yes! Regular cleaning and maintenance will actually help your engagement ring to not only look better but to be more durable as well. Generally, we recommend a cleaning every 6 months or so, depending on how dirty your ring gets.
Not only that, but if a stone ever feels loose or your ring needs a quick repair, just stop by our Portland store. We’ll take care of it for no charge.
When I buy an engagement ring do you recommend an appraisal?
Not only do we recommend it (an appraisal is needed for insurance purposes) but we include a free appraisal with your engagement ring purchase. As certified GIA gemologists, we are happy to offer this service at no added cost to you. In fact, we don’t believe in adding on hidden costs or extra charges-- ever.
