The main stay of most fine jewelry is the diamond. When shopping for a diamond you should know the general aspects of rating a diamond. These are the Cut, color, clarity and carat and will help to determine a great diamond. These will help you compare two diamonds, but everyone values the 4 Cs differently.
The Cut refers to the angles and proportions that a skilled craftsman creates to turn a rough stone into a beautiful diamond. It also refers to the shape of the diamond.
Diamonds color scale comes from the Gemological Institute of America, ranging from D (colorless) to Z. There are also colored diamonds that differ from the D-Z ratings because it is completely colorless and Z is a brownish yellow. The most desirable color is red due to its rarity.
The word carat comes from the word carob. Carob seeds, used by ancient civilizations for measurement, are extremely similar in weight and 1 carob used to equal 1 carat. One carat is 200 milligrams. Therefore, carat measures weight, not size.
Clarity literally means “clearness” and refers to the diamond’s ability to allow the free passage of light without obstruction or absorption. Any inclusions, cleavages, cracks, or other natural features inside or defects on the surface will stop light from passing through the stone. The Clarity is the most important, along with cut, factors affecting the quality and price of any diamond, making your diamond jewelry a stunning addition to your collection today.
