The four C’S

 CUT

The ‘Cut’ is one of the most important aspect of a diamond quality that impacts a diamond’s beauty. Diamond Cut specifically refers to the quality of a diamond’s angles, proportions, symmetrical facets, brilliance, fire, scintillation and finishing details. These factors directly impact a diamond’s ability to sparkle, along with its overall aesthetic appeal.

COLOUR

Colour refers to the natural tint inherent in white diamonds. In nature, most white diamonds have a slight tint of yellow. The closer to being “colourless” a diamond is, the rarer it is. The industry standard for grading colour is to evaluate each stone against a master set and assign a letter grade from “D” (colourless) to “Z” (light yellow).

CLARITY

Almost all diamonds have small impurities or “inclusions,” but they are not always visible to the naked eye. Flawless diamonds are incredibly rare (and therefore expensive) so some compromise is recommend if you want to make the most of your budget.

CARAT

 A carat is a unit of measurement used to specify the weight of a diamond. ‘Carat’ is a diamond industry special word for the weight of a diamond stone. One carat is equal to 200 milligrams, for example, a 5-carat stone will weigh 1 gram.

People often mistakenly assume that a diamond’s size is synonymous with its carat weight, though that’s not necessarily true. Like a human body the more the weight, the more likely the size is bigger, but other factors also affect the size. The way in which the diamond is cut will greatly affect the diameter and brilliance of the diamond. Diamonds with a poorer cut (for example, a change of depth or a thick girdle) will maintain their heavy weight but ‘hidden’ in the base of the diamond with less surface on top so they look smaller.
