The 4C’s Of Diamonds

  • Color
  • Cut
  • Clarity
  • Carat Weight

Now that you have chosen the style of your Ring it is time to choose the Diamond itself. When selecting a Diamond, the most important rule of thumb is to choose the finest diamond in your price range that you can afford, the best way to determine a diamond’s quality is to measure it according to the 4cs rule.

  • Diamond Color

Color refers to the degree to which a diamine is colorless. Color in a diamond is the result of traces of other elements, which mix with carbon during the diamond’s formation.
A color grade of D is the highest possible, while Z is the lowest

  • Diamond Cut

Key Points

  • Cut is the diamonds most important characteristic.
  • It has the greatest overall influence on a diamond’s beauty.
  • It determines what we generally think of as spa.

 

  • Diamond Clarity

 

Key Points

  • Clarity is a measure of the number and size of the tiny imperfections that occurs in almost all diamonds.
  • Many of these imperfections are microscopic, and do not affect a diamond’s beauty in any discernible way.
  • Diamond Carat Weight

Key points

  • Carat is specifically a measure of a diamond’s weight, and by itself may not accurately reflect a diamond’s size
  • We tend to evaluate diamond size by viewing it from the top because that is how diamonds are presented to us when set in to a ring.
  • To understand diamond size, carat weight should be considered in conjunction with two other criteria:
  1. Distance in millimeter across the top of the diamond.
  2. Diamond’s cut grade.
