And below, we’ve written you a brief run down of the 4C’s of Diamonds!
The colour evaluation of most diamonds is based on the absence of colour and how chemically pure a stone is. They are graded D-Z, D being colourless and increasing in colour down the scale to Z.
While no diamond is perfectly pure, the closer it comes to flawless, the higher its value. There are 6 categories in how to grade a Diamonds clarity, starting at Fl (flawless) and IF (Internally flawless) and going down the scale to I (included).
Inclusions and blemishes in natural diamonds are generally the result of how a Diamond is created when carbon exposed to tremendous heat and pressure deep in the earth!
No, not carrot! ‘Carat’ is the measurement of how much a diamond weighs – a metric “carat” is defined as 200 milligrams.Price increases with carat weight because larger diamonds are rarer, therefore more valuable.
It is often thought that a diamond’s cut is the shape (round, emerald, pear), but a diamond’s cut grade really, is how well the diamond’s facets interact with light. The quality of how a diamond is cut is crucial to the final beauty and value.
The GIA cut grading system is based on seven components; Brilliance, Fire and Scintillation, asses the overall appearance of a diamond. The other four, weight ratio, durability, polish, and symmetry, assess a diamond’s design and craftsmanship.
