Learning about Diamonds: Remember the 4 C’s

The 4 C’s are the 4 different aspects of a diamond that will determine it’s look, size and value. You want your diamonds to be large, good clarity, cut in the shape you desire and to be just the right color. We break down Color, Cut, Clarity and Carat below.

Clarity

Diamond clarity refers to the number of inclusions and blemishes found in the diamond. The range is Flawless (FL) at best and goes all the way down to I3 which is the lowest possible quality. A quality diamond will have the least number of blemishes possible.

Cut

A diamond’s cut is comprised of the shape of the diamond and the vesiual effect it creates. This has a direct correlation with how the diamond sparkles. An important aspect to take note of is the pavillion depth. A diamond must have a proper pavillion depth tht is neither too deep or too shallow.

Carat (Size)

Carat weight is how much a diamond weighs. This factor is combined with the other factors such as color, cut and clarity to determine the diamond’s value. A large diamond with low clarity will be worth much less than the same diamond with high clarity.
