The 4 C’s of Diamonds

Cut

The cut of a diamond significantly influences its brilliance and sparkle. This factor refers to how a diamond’s facets interact with light, as well as its symmetry, proportions, and polish. A well-cut diamond will reflect light beautifully, making it appear more luminous.

Color

Diamond color grading ranges from D (colorless) to Z (light yellow or brown). The most valuable diamonds are those with little to no color. The color grade is determined by the amount of color present within the diamond, with colorless diamonds being the most sought-after for their ability to reflect light.

Clarity

Clarity assesses the presence of inclusions (internal flaws) and blemishes (surface imperfections) in a diamond. The clarity scale ranges from Flawless (FL) to Included (I). Diamonds with higher clarity grades have fewer inclusions, making them rarer and more valuable.

Carat

Carat weight measures a diamond’s size by weight, not its dimensions. One carat is equivalent to 0.2 grams. While larger diamonds are often more valuable due to their rarity, the carat weight should be considered alongside the other Cs for a comprehensive understanding of a diamond’s worth.
