THE FOUR C'S OF DIAMOND GRADING

CUT-

A precision-cut diamond with the right proportions and angles will give the most light, brilliance and fire. Cut also represents shape; round, princess, oval, marquise, heart, emerald.

CLARITY-

Clarity refers to the internal characteristics or flaws in a diamond. Internal characteristics can be cracks, black included crystals (carbon spots), or white included crystals. The fewer internal characteristics, the rarer and higher the value of the diamond. A basically white stone with little or no visible-to-the-naked-eye flaws is usually most desirable.

COLOR-

The less color a diamond has, the higher the value.The most desirable color is as colorless as possible. Usually, a basically white diamond is appealing in color.

CARAT-

Carat describes the weight of the diamond.

100 points equals 1.00 carat (or 1 carat)

75 points equals .75 carat (or 3/4 carat)

50 points equals .50 carat (or 1/2 carat)

33 points equals .33 carat (or 1/3 carat)

25 points equals .25 carat (or 1/4 carat)
