Louping a Diamond
Always request a 10x loupe when you buy a diamond, especially if you have it laser inscribed. This is very handy – as well as important – when you give your diamond to a jeweler for a repair or cleaning.
Looking at a diamond under magnification can be exciting. You can easily use a loupe to examine your diamond by following the simple instructions below.
We show the technique without tweezers because of the possible damage from using tweezers incorrectly. If you do know how to use tweezers safely, without damaging the girdle or the culet, then by all means use them.
You might want to print these instructions to keep them next to your examination area.
