The 4 Cs of a quality diamond
Cut refers to the arrangements of a diamond’s facets. It determines the optimum combination of brilliance, dispersion, and scintillation — catching light and sending it dancing to the eye.
When least is best. Diamonds come in a range of colors – generally, the less color in a diamond, the greater its rarity and value. A diamond may not give the appearance of color to the naked eye, yet still have some trace present. Specialty colored diamonds, known as ‘fancies’, are found in a wide color range and possess their own beauty and allure. Fancy diamonds are graded according to their own color intensity system.
Clarity is the degree to which tiny natural marks called inclusions are present in a diamond. Inclusions range in size and may be imperceptible unless viewed under magnification.
The standard measurement for diamond size. Bigger is not always better when it comes to measuring the quality of a diamond – cut, color and clarity all play an integral part in determining the value of a stone.
