4Cs OF DIAMOND QUALITY

Diamond Cut

The cut of colored diamonds plays a very significant role as it is what ultimately brings out the beauty of their natural hue.

Diamond color evaluation is based on the absence of color. A clear diamond must have absolutely no hue. For this to happen, the stone must be chemically pure and structurally perfect.

Diamond Clarity

Clarity of a diamond represents its “cleanliness” as it grades the existence (or lack thereof) of various internal or external flaws on the stone’s body

Diamond Carat

Carat represents the weight of the diamond in carats. Similar to clear stones, the larger the carat size, the rarer the diamond (and therefore, the more valuable and sought after it is.)
