Searching for a loose diamond can be a daunting task. Our talented staff can help you through the process. They will teach you to have a basic understanding about diamonds. You should know the 4 Cs of a diamond—Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat.
Cut – The Cut of a loose diamond is the most important property to increase its beauty because a well-cut diamond reflects light to maximize the stone’s brilliance. It is also the only added aspect to a diamond, since a diamond cutter must have a precise hand to give the diamond its perfect cut. A diamond with perfect color and clarity could nevertheless have poor brilliance if it is not well cut.
Color – The color of a loose diamond that most want is actually colorless. Diamonds do come in a variety of colors, but when someone discusses the color, they are referring to the color scale from colorless to brownish. Diamonds with colors like blue and pink are referred to as fancy diamonds.
Clarity – Clarity refers to the amount of impurities in or on certified diamonds. In other words, the clarity of a diamond refers to a diamond’s clearness or purity.
Carat – The term “Carat” refers to the weight of a diamond and it is different than Karat which refers to metal. It is derived from the carob seeds, which are remarkably consistent in weight and shape, so they became the favored scale balances in ancient times. When we consider all four Cs, that determine value of diamond, we can find Carat weight most accurately and easily by using a delicately balanced scale capable of weighing extremely small stones.
Stop by today and see how knowing the 4 Cs will help you find that perfect certified diamond today at Van Adams Jewelers.
