5. Inspect the ring: 

Before making a purchase, inspect the ring thoroughly. Look for any signs of wear or damage, and ask the jeweler about any repairs or modifications made to the ring. Ensure the diamond is securely set in the ring and there are no prongs or settings. Ideally, The ring is inspected by a 3rd party gem lab and not an in-house employee.
