Cut – the most of what we think of as the fire of a loose diamond—the brilliance—is from the cut. An ideal cut will reflect most of the light that hits the diamond, thus causing it to shine and look very beautiful. A poor cut will make the diamond look lifeless and in many cases a small diamond that has an ideal cut will look much better that a bigger diamond with a shallow or a heavy cut. In many cases, this will make the cut of a diamond affect the price greatly.
Carat – is the weight of the certified diamond. Many people confuse this with the size of one. A carat is one fifth of a gram. The size of a single diamond adds to it’s worth, so 2 half-carat diamonds taken together will not cost as much as 1 one-carat diamond. This is because the one-carat stone is rarer.
After the 4 c’s are evaluated, the price of the diamond earring will be calculated. There are also market values that influence price.

Carat – The weight of a diamond is measured in carats, which equals one fifth of a gram. The term carat came from the carob seed, which was used in the ancient days as a measure on the balance scales as the seed was relatively constant in weight. Carat is not a measure of a diamond’s size, but rather a measure of a diamond’s weight. One carat can also be divided in 100 points. So a one-carat diamond is 100 points, because larger diamondsare found less frequently in nature, they are more valuable. Therefore, a 1-carat diamond will cost more than twice a 1/2-carat diamond, assuming other characteristics are similar. In terms of value keep in mind that size is meaningless unless you take into account how the certified diamond is cut.
Cut – How a diamond is cut determines the beauty of the diamond ring. Diamonds can either be cut to give them the most sparkle and beauty, or they can be cut to save the most weight from the rough diamond crystal. Diamonds cut with Ideal proportions with the best polish & symmetry are the worlds most beautiful, and the rarest even if a diamond is flawless & colorless but with a poor cut it will have dulled brilliance. The cut can affect the value of diamond earrings by up to 35%! Click Here

There are other things you can do to keep your platinum jewelry safe. While many women rarely take their wedding rings off, there are a few times and situations that removing your rings is the best thing you can do for your diamonds. Because damage can occur when chlorine comes in contact with white gold, if you are going to a spa or swim in a chlorinated pool, it is best to remove your rings first. When preparing for the day, it is best to take off your rings while applying makeup and using hair spray. Lastly, when using cleaning products or gardening, it is safest to remove your rings. And if you need to store your rings for any length of time, each piece should be wrapped separately in velvet, paper, or silk because once again it will scratch on your other designer jewelry.
Last but not least, it is important to keep your diamond rings clean. There are several commercial jewelry cleansers that can be used to clean your diamond. You can also mix your own cleaner by mixing one cup of warm water and one tablespoon of non-abrasive dishwashing detergent. Put your diamond in the mixture for around twenty minutes. Then scrub your ring with a soft bristle brush. Rinse in warm water and then dip in rubbing alcohol and let dry naturally.
In addition to all of the care and upkeep you can do on your own, it is best to have your jeweler inspect your fine diamond jewelryannually to insure there are no scratches, the prongs are sturdy, and your diamond is secure. If you take the necessary precautions and take care of your gold rings, you will have your diamonds for a lifetime.
