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.
