The Diamonds 5C's

A Diamonds Four C's.

 

 Cut:

 Cut is probably the most important quality factor, and most challenging, of the four Cs to understand. The brilliance of a diamond depends heavily on its cut.

 

Clarity:

 Most diamonds contain some inner flaws, or inclusions, that occur during the formation process. The visibility, number and size of these inclusions determine what is called the clarity of a diamond. Diamonds that are clear create more brilliance, and thus are more highly prized, and priced.

 

Color:

 Colorless diamonds are the most desirable since they allow the most refraction of light (sparkle). Off white diamonds absorb light, inhibiting brilliance.

 

Carat:

A carat is the unit of weight by which a diamond is measured. Because large diamonds are found less commonly than small diamonds, the price of a diamond rises exponentionaly to its size.

 


The Fifth C: Certificates!!

The diamond certificate, which is sometimes called a grading report,  is a complete evaluation of a diamond

that has been performed by a qualified professional  with the help of special gemological instruments.
Each stone bears its own recognizable, individual characteristics, which is listed on the certificate.
