Diamonds. Finding the Right one for you

The 4 C’s are commonly referred to in the diamond world as Carat, Color, Clarity and Cut. To understand how the 4 C’s work together to determine a diamond’s rarity and value, consider a balancing act (or teeter totter) of carat weight vs. color, clarity and cut. To select a larger size for a given price, to stay in balance, you would choose a less rare quality diamond. To choose a rarer quality diamond, to stay in balance, you would choose a smaller size.

The combination of the 4 C’s is strictly a personal preference and seeking the guidance of a diamond expert can make the experience of purchasing your wedding day diamond a very intimate and special one for you and your significant other.

Precious gemstone diamonds

Carat

When you hear people talk about ‘carat’ weight, they are referring to weight. When a diamond is weighed on a scale it is measured in terms of a carat. Common terms are 1/2 carat, 1.00 carat and up. The heavier the carat weight the larger the diamond gemstone.

Color

Color is a factor measuring the quality of the color a diamond possesses. When this refers to white diamonds it depicts how much ‘yellow’ is present in the diamond. Keep in mind color is graded by a 10x power microscope and the color may not be noticeable to the naked or untrained eye. Color also refers to colored diamonds such as fancy yellow, or pink diamonds just to name a few.

Clarity

Clarity measures how many flaws or imperfections are present in a diamond. Almost all diamonds have some level of imperfections that can show up like feathers, crystallization or black carbon specks just to name a few. The clearer the diamond the better the clarity.

Cut

Cut is a variable that measures how well a diamond reflects light. A diamond’s cut can range from good to very good to excellent/ideal. The better the cut, the more light is reflected at every carat weight.
