The Four C's

When it comes to determining a diamond's quality and value, there is a universally accepted standard known as the four C's: cut, color, clarity and carat weight.

Cut          

                                   The cut of a diamond determines its ultimate beauty. A diamond cut to
                                   correct proportions will give off an unrivaled radiance. Cut a diamond too
                                   shallow or too deep, and light will escape through the bottom or sides.


                

Cut

Color          

                                  Diamonds occur in every color of the spectrum. While yellows, browns
                                  and grays are the most commonly found colors, the most desirable color
                                   is colorless. Truly colorless gems are extremely rare.


                    Color

Clarity

                                   Clarity refers to the number of imperfections in the diamond, known
                                   as inclusions. The majority of diamond have some degree of inclusions
                                   in them. The fewer inclusions, the more rare and valuable it is.


              Clarity 

Carat

                                  Diamonds are sold by weight in carats. Each carat is 1/5 of a gram.
                                  The heavier the diamond, the more vaulable it is. But bigger doesn't
                                   necessarily mean better. Quality is found in diamonds of all sizes.
