Diamond Education

4Cs of Diamonds

There are the four value factors to Diamond Education that jewelers use when grading diamonds with the 4Cs. The first step to making an informed decision with your diamond education when buying a diamond that is right for you involves understanding the:

· Clarity
· Color
· Cut
· Carat

And one last important factor: "Fifth C"
· Certificates










CLARITY

In nature only a few things can be absolutely perfect, that is just as true in a diamond. Diamonds have internal features we call clarity characteristics that occur during the formation process. Absence of the clarity characteristics in a diamond is what creates more brilliance, which means more flash for your cash.

COLOR

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

CUT

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

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. Read this guide to get a better understanding of what a carat is and how it affects the appearance of a diamond.

Fifth C: CERTIFICATE

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